Every Birthday Needs A Wish List!

Shop The Post

Guess what! It’s my birthday month! I know! But it’s just for a few more days, so stay with me!

Birthdays are SO much fun, but as we get older, they’re also a little more difficult. Trying to get all of your friends together, figuring out where to go and what to do … and the dreaded “What do I get the person who has everything?” Well, I can help you out with that!

Here are the things on my wish list, everything on trend, so you can use these for birthday gifts, bridesmaids gifts or just a little happy for your friends!


Lafco Candles

Wait! I know what you’re thinking. Candles are a total give up gift and no one needs another candle. But these aren’t your average candles! They’re vegan and made with natural essential oils so they have a totally delicious scent without being overpowering. Plus, each candle is named after the room that it goes into which is super-cute. Of course you don’t necessarily have to put it in that room but it’s fun if you can! Boudoir, Powder Room and Penthouse are my faves!


Kristin Cavallari Peep Toe Sandals

Y’all remember Kristin Cavallari from The Hills, right? Well now she’s married with kids and a fashion designer!

I was introduced to these shoes because my friend, Morgan, has them and I’m obsessed now. They’re super versatile because they come in 3 neutral colors and you can wear them with jeans, rompers or dresses. I also love that you can get a good fit because they have elastic and cute little ties around the ankle! And they’re only $150, which is a great price for Chinese Laundry!


Cravings by Chrissy Teigen

This is the perfect gift for anyone who likes to cook! I LOVE Chrissy Teigen so I was super excited when I found out she was writing a cookbook. My girl crush AND food? What could be better? I LOVE her low and slow egg recipe (even though I DON’T love eggs) so I knew her cookbook would be great. If you’re not following her on Instagram, you should because she’s hilarious. She’s already posted a picture of her new baby girl, Luna. Presh! Anyway, I can’t wait to try every recipe in this cookbook. I may never leave the kitchen again!


Silver Oak Wine

When people don’t know what to get me, they get me a bottle of Silver Oak. I know I’ve said it before, but it really is the best wine ever. And it brings back such great memories of my dad, so that’s always a win. Plus, I save all the corks and write the date when we drank it on the cork with Sharpie, so I can always remember that day. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!


Elizabeth and James Nirvana Dry Shampoo

This is a great gift for your best girlfriend. Because who has time to wash, dry and style your hair every time you leave the gym? Not me! I tried it when my bestie, Catherine, had it for after spin class and fell in love. It smells amazing and doesn’t leave the white residue like a lot of dry shampoos!


Tor Miller Vinyl

This is THE gift for the music lover in your life! First, let me tell you how much I love my record player. It’s totally vintage but vinyl is the best way to truly hear music. I just saw Tor Miller at Live in the Vineyard and can’t stop listening to him. I LOVE LOVE LOVE him and he is everything music to me right now. Trust me. You want this!


Bauble Bar Earrings

I love jewelry, but on the days when you don’t want to over accessorize, a great earring is perfection. I am currently in LOVE with these Geode Drops from Bauble Bar. I am in love with geodes and this color is perfect for Spring. Also, it’s a great way to incorporate a little color if you wear a lot of black.


See, that wasn’t so bad, was it? Just a few more days until my birthday and then I’ll be done with all the birthday talk … til next year!
