Holiday Gift Guide for: HER

Hi everyone and welcome to the beginning of the holiday season here on Allison In Wonderland!  I’m so excited to be able to share my first gift guide post with you today!  Throughout the rest of the post, I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite gift ideas (of all different price ranges) for the woman in your life, whether it be your mom, your sister, a best friend, or a significant other.  I hope you enjoy!

1.   DIY Spa Package.  This idea is so easy!  Just head to Lush (or your favorite bath and body store) and pick out a few items; you can’t go wrong!  Grab a bath bomb, a bubble bar, and your favorite lib scrub scent and you’re good to go.  She’ll love it!

2.  A baking kit and recipe box.  This idea is for the woman in your life who is always in the kitchen, making something delicious!  Rifle Paper Co. has gorgeous recipe boxes that can beautifully accompany a winter-themed baking kit!  You can find a relatively inexpensive baking kit at Target or Walmart.  All you need are some cute, festive cookie cutters and a dough roller and your girl is set!

3.  A blanket and a candle.  I have to say, this idea is the easiest (and the coziest) out of all of them!  If you know that she loves to snuggle up for movie marathons, this is the gift for her.  Find the perfect comfy blanket and a winter-scented candle and your gift is complete!

4.  Jewelry!  This one’s a given.  Most girls love getting jewelry during the holidays but make it a little funky this year!  Try to pick out items that are a bit different than things she usually gets and that will be really special to her, like this ring and earring set from High Point Supply Co.!  Another jewelry company that I absolutely love is The Makery!  Everything is handmade and her pieces are just beautiful.  Some of my favorites for the holiday season is this fern necklace, these wishbone studs, and an opal ring!  All of them are under $30 and will add so much to your holiday outfits.  If you decide to order from The Makery, enter allisoninwonderland at the checkout where it says “apply shop coupon code” to get 15% off your order!  What a deal!

5.  Letterboards!  I think this is such a neat Christmas gift!  Letterboards have really become trendy this past year and it’s the perfect gift for the interior design-minded girl.  If you purchase this board from Letterfolk, you get the board plus 290 characters (letters and numbers) so you’ll be able to write out whatever you want!  It’s the perfect apartment/home accessory!

If you purchase a candle or jewelry (or anything!) from High Point Supply Co., enter allisoninwonderland at the spot at checkout that says “enter affiliate code here” in red.  By doing this, we can give towards ending the injustice of human trafficking and shop for a cause!

That’s all for this gift guide, I hope you got some creative ideas!  I recently shared some more gift ideas on CandidlyKeri’s blog, so be sure to check out her site as well!  Next week will be a Holiday Gift Guide for: HIM, so be sure to check back if you’re looking for the perfect gift idea for the man in your life.  Have a great week!

Jewelry Talk ft. High Point Supply Co.

Hi everyone and welcome to another post on Allison In Wonderland!  I’m here to bring you this week’s article!  Today, I’m going to chat a bit about a cause that’s been very heavy on my heart in recent years: human-trafficking.  Attending James Madison University in Harrisonburg has really brought this issue to the fore-front of my mind, being that this city has a rather large issue with this injustice, due to being located right along highway 81.  Fortunately, there is always a way we can help!

One way we can make a difference (and my favorite way) is by shopping!  Exciting, I know!  I recently came across High Point Supply Co. and immediately fell in love with the heart of the company.  As I was poking around their website, I realized that they have a really cool way of browsing where you can shop by subject, but you can also shop by country or by cause.  So, if you already have a country or cause in mind that you want to directly give to, this is your place!

After exploring the anti-trafficking section for a bit, I ended up finding such wonderful goodies!  They’re all so beautiful and you can feel good about your purchase because you’re not only helping your wardrobe, but you’re helping and supporting those who really, really need it.  In the case of giving towards the anti-trafficking cause, the jewelry is coming straight from women in India who are survivors of sex-trafficking.  Part of the proceeds go towards providing those women with jobs, financial stability, and emotional rehabilitation!

The first piece I came across is called the Journey necklace and it’s my favorite piece that I got!  It’s so dainty but it still stands out against any pattern you might be wearing.  This is one of the more simple necklaces High Point Supply Co. has and I love that it tells a story!  Some other pieces I got are these rings!  Ring are my absolute favorite accessory so I already knew I was going to love these.  The stack of 3 rings is so wearable!  The other ring is larger than I usually go for so I was a bit skeptical if I’d actually be able to keep it on throughout the day, but it was no problem at all; I barely noticed it!

The last item that I got in this package is a set of stud earrings.  Stud earrings are my favorite because they’re so easy.  They don’t get it in the way and they add such a subtle difference to your outfit!  The ones I got are called Aztec Studs and I chose to get them in the brass color.  They go perfectly with the other pieces and are such a great addition to my collection.  Another plus was, when my package arrived, all of the pieces had a little note attached of the name of the person who made it, which just makes them even more special to me!

If you’d like to purchase something from High Point Supply Co. and “shop for a cause,” put allisoninwonderland in the space at the checkout where it says “ENTER AFFILIATE CODE HERE.”  “Enter affiliate code here” will be in red ink and you have to click the sentence and it opens a little comment box where you will enter the code.  By entering this code, they’ll know that you’re one of my beautiful readers! Let me know in the comments if you purchase anything, I’d love to see!

Lastly, I’d like to give a huge thanks to my friend Leslie for taking the photos included in this post!  Check her out on Instagram at leslie_heisler and also follow High Point Supply Co. at hpsupplyco!  As always, thanks for reading and I’ll be back next week with a brand new one!
