I don't know about you guys, but I have a bad habit of waiting until the last minute for almost everything. What can I say, I work best under pressure!
While I might get a pass for procrastinating things like papers, email responses, concert tickets and maybe even this blog post, but it just doesn't work when it comes to buying gifts.
I figure some of you may be experiencing a similar problem, so I decided to put together this Christmas gift guide to help a sista out!
Coco Note: Anybody wanna help this sista out and pick up a few of these? Nah? Too much? Cool.
1. UGG boots
I know how people feel about these. I do not care. It's like walking on clouds people, CLOUDS. Get you some UGG boots.
2. GoPro Hero 4
I have had my eye on this baby (and it's predecessors) for weeks. It is so sleek and the features are amazing. It has wifi capability so you can send pictures to your phone or device immediately, it's waterproof AND it takes videos and pictures with great quality! I want!
My mom has loves to play Gospel music while she cleans the house, but she's been playing it off of her iPhone! Just imagine how hard it is to hear music playing from your phone while you're washing dishes. Kirk Franklin is loud, but he ain't that loud! The BEATS Pill comes in many colors, including the rose gold versions, and is small enough to travel with. This would be great to take with you on vacations to use in the hotel room while getting ready to step out!
It seems like as they make these phones bigger, brighter and more powerful, they're also making the batteries weaker. My phone is always dying while I'm out. These portable batteries and extended battery phone cases have literally saved my life multiple times. They come in all sizes, shapes and colors, too!
Coco Note: I would recommend looking on Amazon or Ebay first, as these can get pretty expensive.
5. Gift Sets
We all love music, but honey I don't have the time to pay for every song! Give the gift your loved one will actually USE!
This is also perfect for a co-worker, fellow church group member, significant other's family member, or anyone else whose taste you're just not too sure of.
8. Wine Glasses
Wine Glasses are a great gift for anyone who has recently gotten married, moved into a new apartment or home, enjoys throwing parties/hosting dinners, or simply enjoys a bottle of Merlot. There are so many different shapes, colors and designs to play around with too. You can even personalize them, if you really want to get fancy!
Coco Note: You can NEVER have too many wine glasses. Get yo' Olivia Pope on boo.
For that special man in your life. Give him a gift you can enjoy too. Beard butter.

10. The Tie Bar
One of my favorite online boutiques for men is The Tie Bar. Every girl loves a man in a suit, but there's something about a man in the right tie, with the right pocket square, complementary socks and the right tie bar. Get your man, brother, father, son, etc right for the New Year!
Happy Holidays! Let me know which gifts you'll be giving this season, or which ones you want!
