AK Gift Guide 2017: Unique Gifts for Your Mom, Sister, and Best Friend

Fun, unique gifts that are perfect for your mom, sister, best friend, and even for yourself this holiday season! These are gifts that she’ll use and love.

Hello hello and happy Friday!

Hope the rest of your week was a great one. That first week back from a holiday week can be crazy busy and exhausting — am I right?

Next week is ALL about the cookies on Ambitious Kitchen, so get excited. I have everything from classic Christmas cookies to grain free and paleo coming at you. It’s going to be epic.

Now onto our FINAL gift guide of this year…

Today’s guide is dedicated to the ladies: all of the friends, sisters, girlfriends, and mamas in your life. I picked out 30 super unique, fun gifts that she can actually use in her everyday life. From DIY cheese and kombucha kits, to an introspective journal and even a wine tumbler (oh yessss), these are ones you’ll be excited to share with her.

There are also a few staples for her closet and beauty routine that she’s going to love.

Take a scroll and leave a comment with your favorites! I hope you find some great picks in here. Have an amazing weekend and enjoy!
