Are you looking for the perfect holiday gift ideas for women in your life? One of my students once told me that his dad’s advice on gifts for women was: Never something with a plug. Depending on what the plug belongs to (a vacuum cleaner vs. an e-reader), that probably isn’t bad advice. But sometimes we could use more suggestions. Do you want to see them embrace body, soul, and self-love? This inspired guide has plenty of options for gifts for women that promote self-love while exemplifying how much you love the recipient. So shop on — for your loved ones and you!
