White Elephant Gift Ideas

How hard is it to find a unisex gift?! Very! So i took the guess work out of it for you. I composed a list of a few ideas I think would be cool for both men and women, adults and kids. Now keep an open mind, some of the ideas are small in price so you would make a theme out of it. For example i found water proof playing cards, perfect for the beach, so you could add beach towels, towel clips, a beer can hider, you name it, and make a beach theme gift! Pretty much everything is under $25. Good luck and i hope you get some good ideas.

Gifts For Her

IKEA Throw Blanket – Click Image to Order

My FAVORITE throw blanket in my house. My Mom had this at her shore house and i just HAD to have one for myself. Wash and dries very nice as well. So so cozy, we all fight over it. It’s also not too hot so you can totally use it in warmer months as well. I love the cable knit/homemade look of it. Only downfall I can say is there are only three color options. This blue (which i own), Ivory, and Blush Pink. Wish it came in more colors. This makes a beautiful gift wrapped in pretty ribbon !!

Click Image to order Revlon Styler
Click Image to order Revlon Styler

I can not tell you how many times a day i hear from women how much they love this brush/ hairdryer in one. So what did we do at the salon?? We purchased one for ourselves to try! Verdict is out it is an AMAZING tool. Let me explain- it is a brush and blow dryer in one. So you only need to use tool not two to blow dry your hair. Now would i use it personally in the salon, no, as a stylist a brush and blow dryer is always my preferred method. What i will say is for the average person struggling using their blow dryer and brush combo, this is the perfect gift for you.

Note: I will say if your hair is very long it is probably not a good fit for you or the gift recipient. Extremely long hair just wont work with this. (Think hair down to stomach to give you an idea of how long i mean) Best for short, medium, and medium to long length only.

Click image to order Best Round Brush

These are hands down THE best round brush to blow dry your hair. I was skeptical at first because they are longer then the usual round brush BUT thats what makes it amazing ! Hair never gets stuck, it is larger so you can get a bigger section of hair done. Now here is the break down of what size brush you should get. So if you know someone who still likes the classic brush and blow dryer get them this or honestly get it for yourself !!

Short hair : (Above Chin) 1 3/8 “

Medium Hair: (shoulder length- few inches below shoulder) 2 1/8”

Long hair or very curly hair : 3 1/2”

Click image to order Rusk blow dryer (lightweight) $70

I get asked all the time for blow dryer recommendations. Honestly a good blow dryer will make all the difference in your hair trust me. One thing i will tell you is you do NOT need to spend $400 on a gimmicky blow dryer, thats just insane. Yes i have used that blow dryer and NO it is soooo not worth it at all so please don’t waste your time or money . Now back to this one… if you have normal hair and not insanely curly or thick or if your buying for a young girl this is perfect. Also good for any one with shoulder problems because its so lightweight! Or if your someone where your arms kill by the end of the blow dry this is for you. My friend Kristin at work recommends this to everyone so i went with her advice .. thank you Kristin!

Click image to order Bio Ionic Blow dryer $135

This blow dryer is my own personal blow dryer and I love it. get super hot but has adjustable heat settings. This one is better for thicker more trouble some hair. I use this daily in the salon as well, and love it. Excellent blow dryer for $135, worth every penny, literally does the exact same thing as any expensive blow does. Also ALWAYS use the concentrator that comes with your blow dryer do not throw those away. That protects your hair from the hot coils from touching directly on your hair thats very important. If you have hated every blow dryer in the past get this one. I also gifted this to my mom a few years back she loves it still to this day.

Click Image to order Hand Cream Set

What a nice set of hand creams for only $13! Even better i would break up the set give one to my Mom, a sister, or Aunt. Obviously I would give them something else as well, don’t worry! These come highly recommended from a good friend of mine, that i had to add them to the list.

Click image to Order THE BEST top coat

Hands down THE BEST clear top coat. I have gifted and recommended this to people and everyone of them always rave about it. What a nice treat for your mom. Get Mom a few Essie Gel Polish to go along with this, cotton balls, polish remover, nail file etc. What a cute little package for her to pamper herself.

Note: My personal all time favorite Essie polish color is Ballet Slippers. It’s a classic and will always be in style. It’s a pale classy light pink color.

Click to order Essie Ballet Slippers

Also did I mention it’s only $9 bucks!

Click image to order Vitamin E. Oil

I cant tell you how much i love this stuff. I have been using it for almost a year now. My sister starting using it as well and she equally will now say “Jo i cant go without my Vitamin E. Oil”! Trust me it feels so good on your skin, and will not make you break out, I have acne prone skin and if i can say anything i have had less breakouts. If your skeptical get the small bottle to try or to gift. You only need a few drops, but a small bottle might only last yo about a month or so, if your using it morning and night like i do. Love this product so much.

Click to order vanity mirror with lights

You HAVE to check this one out. Might not look like much from the picture, but it’s an over sized Vanity mirror, with three addition magnifying mirrors as well. Also my other fave parts are: 1. you can fold in the sides of the mirror to have a clean look, 2: it is battery powered OR can be charged like your phone with a USB cord. I did lots of looking around for a good vanity mirror and this one is where its at. $25. *White Elephant Gift

I had this on my Men’s Guide and i just had to add it here as well, because i just love this bowl. How wonderful is it to not have to worry about those damn shells of your pistachios! This is also great for cherries in the summer time, thats another one i hate having to tote around two bowls if i want to eat them. Is this super affordable too at $12 dollars. *White Elephant Gift

Click image to order leather gloves (with Touch screen fingertips)

Now i know what your thinking … eh leather gloves?? TRUST ME. My Aunt gifted me these one year and not until i used them was I then like wow I LOVE these. I know it sounds crazy but they keep my hands soo warm and i love the leather it looks so classy / Mom from Home Alone at the same time. Even when i go out for my winter walks to exercise ill be in work out clothes and leather gloves because they are so warm. Funny looking I know but hey girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. $25 Touch screen fingertips as well which is a must for me. Sizing is the only tricky part i would say on average 7-8 is the typical size. *White Elephant (women)

Click image to order gloves

These warm and toasty gloves have THREE fingers that are touch screen! I would not dream of getting a pair of gloves that aren’t touch screen. These are cute yet have a big fuzzy layer inside, and touch screen. $15 (just got myself a pair- this gift lists are becoming a problem for me ! Ha )

Click image to order My Pillow

I know this one gets mixed reviews, but I personally have this and have been using it for years now and still LOVE it. My Mom, sister, and kids all have them and love them. I personally cant live with out it. I have the Firm, and my kids have the medium, quite honestly you cant tell the difference. I am a side sleeper, or back sleeper…. i guess you didn’t really need to know that but hey now ya know. Any who it was gifted to me for Christmas many years back and ill never go back. Best part and I always recommend this, its machine wash and dry. Why the company (and i agree ) recommends washing and drying it every few months is because it kinda “ rejuvenates” it back to its original self making it feel like a brand new pillow again. Side note: This is NOT for stomach sleepers. I LOVE THIS PILLOW !!!

Click image To order overnight duffel

How nice is this overnight bag for $35. It is lightweight and packable, which I like for storage, i hate huge duffel bags in my closet taking up prime real estate. Perfect for overnight trips, or as a carry on bag for the gal in your life who travels a lot. Comes in four different color combinations. Also has slit in the back to slide it onto your luggage.

CLICK IMAGE TO ORDER TRAVEL MAKE UP BAG

I love this make up travel organizer. Main reason i like it is because it has moveable parts to it so if your make up is larger you can make space for that! Also spots for your brushes which i love because i hate throwing brushes into a bag with a bunch of other stuff. Great gift coming in at $19.99. I love this. Great co worker gift or white elephant!

Workout Gear

Click for my personal yoga mat

Ok .. so funny story. I gave this as a gift to my mom years ago for Christmas. She loved it naturally, fast forward about a year later i needed to borrow her yoga mat for some unknown reason. Well that was about two years ago now and i never gave it back. I actually ended up gifting her a new one. I love it and now it’s the only mat ill use. I do feel like people complain about needing to be “broken in” but i guess because i stole mine from my mom she broke it in for me .. haha.. so I couldn’t tell you, i personally never felt that way. It’s a great gift, and add the yoga towel to bag to this for a REALLY special gift, all for under $100 or at least very close.

Grip Hot Yoga/Pilates Towel- Click image to order

I LOVE these towels for when i do hot Pilates. They are usually around $50-$70 dollars. Well thats a no no no for Inspo By Jo. I was on a search to find a nice affordable option, and here ya have it!

So if your mom is a hot yoga gal get her one she will love it.

I’m also short and the length is perfect. Great Lululemon dupe. Only $27! I have the size small for reference, so true to size.

Click image to order Fleece Lined Yoga Pants

These are perfect for the girl who runs outdoors in the winter or any outdoor activity in the winter months. These are the same pants but FLEECE lined. I have them and need them for my outdoor winter walks. They are awesome. Also true to size. I love the color combos of these.

Click Image to order Aerie Leggings

Last but not least my favorite Aerie legging of all time. I have them in every color. They feel like nothing is on your body. If you want to feel “sucked in” maybe these aren’t for you. They are like butter on your skin, that being said for outdoor runs etc. these are very lightweight so might not keep you warm in winter months. Ok long story short they are the BEST. You can usually find them on sale around $25

Click image to order Yoga Mat Bag

This yoga mat bag is over sized so it will fit any size mat. Also has pockets for your phone, yoga mat towel, keys, so you can walk into the yoga studio hands free. I’m always juggling a bunch of little things when i walk into the studio so i just sent this to my husband to get me it for Christmas ! I read lots of reviews. I also like the material of this one I didn’t want cotton, for fear if i spilled water on it, I like this material better. Only $18 dollars !

Gifts over $50 dollars

My friend has this and I LOVE it. Looks soooo cute on her and since all i wear is exercise gear literally all day everyday, this is the perfect Vest to throw on to run errands or the bus stop. Super cute!

How nice is this overnight bag for $35. It is lightweight and packable, which I like for storage, i hate huge duffel bags in my closet taking up prime real estate. Perfect for overnight trips, or as a carry on bag for the gal in your life who travels a lot. Comes in four different color combinations.

Click Image to order MZ Wallace Backpack

I honestly need this bag. I had a backpack purse for years and always got compliments on it and comfort wise it was my favorite purse ever. That being said someone please buy me this for Christmas haha. Perfect as a diaper bag for sure, I would have loved this when my kids were little. Now it is expensive, so if your shopping fo yourself like always seem to do around the holidays (I’m the worst) they have a lot of these on Poshmark, but keep in mind no returns on Poshmark and they are used. Just an FYI.

Click to order MY personal wedding band

I cant begin to tell you how many compliments i get on my wedding rings. I wanted to have that stacked band look, but not at the cost of 1k each. So years ago i found this gem on QVC and figured I would give it a try. Well i just love it, and people are always saying WOW i love your wedding bands. I wear my rings everyday, never ever take them off. As my profession i do hair, and wear it day in and day out with out any problems of diamonds falling out etc. Keep in mind if one does QVC Diamonique offers a Lifetime guarantee on all their products so you can send it back they will replace it or refund you. This can also be worn alone, its smaller but not too small where it looks stupid worn alone. Makes a beautiful gift. For reference i have had mine for 3 plus years this exact ring, and i have it in silver and gold.

Click watch to go to ”Last Call” Neiman Marcus Website

I always wanted a Michele watch for years and a few years back my husband got me one for Christmas, and I ADORE it to this day. Now of course it is a ton of money so i happen to also love the Michele watches in the jelly band! These are much more affordable option, and you can usually find them Nordstrom rack, Last Call Newman Marcus (i included the link just click on watch image) This would be a BIG gift fo her so maybe make sure she would really want it before you invest – haha . But again if anyone would like to get me something this year I’ll take the Navy Deco Style one …. just something small I’m not asking for much.

A note from the author :

I hope that you all enjoy this gift guide for her. I found this to be one of the hardest one because women are usually pretty particular so all else fails a spa gift card is always a wonderful gift! I would also like to add a gift to get their hair done is always much appreciated trust me I talk to a lot of women every day and they would all agree. Please remember to relax this holiday season everything always gets done and who cares if it doesn’t!

Just Lips

HA! “Just Lips” i was trying to think of a catchy Tagline for this category, but came up with, well nothing, so i went with “just lips” soooo catchy and original. I need a job in marketing, I would be hired in a minute. Anyway….. here’s all my lip color options that i love, try one, try them all, try none! Haha


Lip Scrubs

First off you need nice lips so I always in the morning when doing my make up use a lip scrub. Trader Joe’s has my all time fave but its only available for a very limited time around then holiday season, so run and get one like ..now! Two of them will literally last you an entire year. I get myself two and I just opened the second box maybe a month ago.

Found great alternative that came highly recommended from a friend and is also super cheap. It’s a scrub for gods sake no need to spend a fortune on this it all does the same damn thing trust me. Also comes in different “flavors”. A good organic option for kids with those chapped lips in the winter.

Click Image to order Lip scrub $10

Lip Treatments

Click image to order my fave lip balm

My sis is lucky enough to fly first class often.. i know my life is so lame. Any who, they give out little make up bags with lots of goodies in it.. i know amazing right. So she has so many of them she always gives me the extras and this lip gloss is one of them that that gift. I lOVE it !!! I’m hooked. So it is a little pricey $14 is a lot for me to spend on lip balm/gloss but i liked it that much that i paid for it. Little goes a long way and will last you awhile.

Click Image to order Overnight Lip Treatment

I also use this before bed it works wonders if your lips are in bad shape. I also use it on the kids as well. Very hard to find in stores, so i provided link to Amazon. This is a good one for winter months.

Available only at your local Trader Joe’s

I also love this, comes in a set of three perfect to keep one in car, purse, work. The entire set is so cheap like $4 buck i think. Available all year long at Tarder Joes.


Now to the good stuff the lip colors ……

Lip Color ( gloss and lipstick )

Click image to order my fave lip gloss trio

My two favorite colors from this one are Creme Brûlée , and Angel food both of which are in this trio! Also hard to find both in stores so just save yourself the trouble and get the set.

Click to order L’Oréal Peach Fuzz

I love this color. When i first put it on i was like .. Eh… then it grew on me and now i love it!!! You just need a quick swipe over your lips thats all. It’s so pretty !

Click to order Pink Wink Lip color

Now this color is a pretty winter color. Like the perfect berry ish color. It’s pops a punch so again, you just need a little bit. The perfect compliment to any holiday outfit. Would be great for brunettes and blondes in my opinion. Also super affordable at $5.00.

Click to order MAC Brave Lip color

Hands down best universal color. If your worried about the other two go with this one, although it is more money at $25 a pop, so it is taking a risk. I provided the link but if there is a MAC counter at a store near you i recommend going there and they can try it out on you and then if you don’t like it hey no sweat off you back! I love this color, its always a classic all year long.

I know i know everyone makes fun of me that i do not use lip liners. SO i went out and found one i like but i will say it wont blow your socks off …haha … none the less its good and does the job and best of all i super affordable.

Click image to order Lip Liner

NYX lip liner in Whipped Caviar. I love this lip liner. Affordable and great color with out being too much. This i will put on then one of the NYX lip glosses. Looks great and natural

These have tons of great reviews! I ordered a pair for my son who works outside.

Perfect work glove – great gift from kids to dad. Price point for these are $16 dollars and are available in 4 colors !

Click Image to order North Face driving gloves

These are more of a going out/ everyday glove. These have the smart phone touch on the tips of the gloves. These can be worn with a dress coat to go out, or just with a puffy coat and jeans. These are a very nice, classy gift for that special guy in your life.

Click to order North Face Coat

Now i know this one is a little pricey, coming in at around $190. Listen this will be the big gift. This is one for the entire winter, not some wimpy coat.

He will have this for years. It’s a timeless coat. Treat yo man to something nice.

Click Image to Order Yeti Beer Colster

I gifted this to my husband last year for his birthday and now he cant live without it- well i mean he could he just really likes it. Anywho, he says it truly works to keep his beer cold. Also good option for you soda drinkers out there.

Click image to order Bottle Keeper

Now this gem is so cool. As seen on Shark Tank. It twists off from the bottle and you slip your beer bottle in. Keeps it nice and cold, and disguises the beer bottle if your lets say on a beach where no drinking is allowed. This is a great gift idea, its unique and different , and most likely they won’t already have it. Really cool invention. Comes in various colors and price is $34.99.

Click Image to Order my FAVE and Husbands FAVE water bottle

Ok this is last “bottle” type gift i promise, but I saved the best for last! This water bottle both my husband and i have used for years now. It is simply the best. I have recommended it to many people and they also always agree. No straws to clean, wide opening for ice if you desire, keeps cold for 24 hours even in 100 degree day. Never spills, has a handle, has a cover for where you sip out of. All in all don’t look around for another water bottle, just stop what your doing and order yourself one and that special man in you life. TRUST ME!!!

Click Image to Order Ugg Men’s Slipper (indoor /outdoor)

Funny enough both my husband and my friends husband both have these both LOVE them and have both had them for years and held up awesome. So when it came time to make this list we both said these HAD to be on it. Worth every penny. Comes in so many color options, and suede or leather. So many options to suit your mans taste. Her husband has leather, mine suede, and both equally held up great. Perfect for the winter months.

Click for link to Target website – Goodfellow V-neck Tee (undershirt)

These are hands down THE best undershirt at a fraction of the price of name brand. Only problem is they sell out quickly, so get them while you can! V-neck is popular because then you don’t see the undershirt under your dress shirt. If you cant decided crew neck or V i say go with the V-neck. These are insanely soft too!!!

Click image to Order Ethika underware

Now don’t be turned off by the look of these. They are all the rage in men’s boxer brief. Even my kids ONLY wear Ethika underware. As a side note they can also be worn as rash guards under bathing suits. Now they come in cotton, but you want to order this exact type. The print ones are made out of Polyester and this is the type you want to get. So insanely comfortable, feels like second skin….so i have been told. Although I haven’t had personal experience with them haha

Click image to order Patagonia sweater

Classic for any man. Comes in so many colors you can’t go wrong with this gift. Backcountry (link provided just click on image) has them for 30 percent off, $70 dollars from $100 . Now that’s my kinda deal. Great for teen boys as well.

Click for link to Nike Vapor Power Duffel

I like this one because there is a lot of room and pockets. Also can be crossbody or use the handles. Perfect for the gym or can even be used as an overnight bag as well. Also its a gym bag that isn’t “cheesy” looking.

J.Crew Magic Wallet

Click to order J. Crew Magic Wallet

My husband has had this wallet for years and LOVES it. That’s all. Haha Just kidding, no he really loves it and has been through the washer and held up just fine. After all these years the elastic to hold the money still holds strong. Just a nice inexpensive gift ($21) maybe from child to Dad.

Click image to order Magnet money Clip

Now this is a great alternative for men who do not like a wallet. Comes in three color options. Is magnetic so it stays shut. Tons of great reviews and best part only $10 dollars! Now if only i had that many hundreds in my money clip…i would really be in good shape. !

Click Image to order Safe (water and Fire prof)

I did some research and this is not only fire proof but water as well. I like the key pad entry. It’s a little pricey at $160, but i looked around and to find the water and fire prof this is the going rate. Fear not i found an excellent alternative below if your just looking for something for your family’s documents etc. Now its not a safe but it will protect against fire and water damage, but naturally not theft.

Click Image to order fire and water prof bags for important documents

I personally love this option, so much so that I ordered one for myself. I have been saying i needed something like this for a long time. Plus not for noting you’ll always know where your Birth certificates, social security cards, etc., are. These are priced fabulously at $20. Now that can’t be beat!

Click image to order Yeti Dupe cooler

Found this Yeti dupe at a fraction of the price! I love that you can hold it over the shoulder and as a handle, thats a nice feature that is sometimes overlooked. Holds a 30 pack of beer, now thats with out ice, but none the still a nice size. Great for the beach, Fourth of July, outdoor picnics, you name it! Price point is $65 bucks talk about a steal!

Click to order Ice Scrapper

These ice scrappers are a fan fave at my house! The cone shape makes it so easy to blow through the ice on your windshield. No more scrapping with those terrible plastic scrappers. The other end has tiny spikes to break up the ice then you take the cone to scrape the rest away. $10 for two so one for you and one for your Hubby.

Click to order Yeti Mug

I have this one at home and use it everyday. My husband and i fight over it most days. Don’t tell him i got him one in the navy color for Christmas, Shhh. You can literally walk away from your coffee for an hour come back and it still be hot. I love this one because of the handle it makes you feel like your still drinking out of a coffee mug. This is well worth the name brand for it will only set you back $25. If this is still too much to spend check out my Gifts Under $12, and there is an excellent dupe of this on there. Lastly – did you see – dishwasher safe . Say no more.

Tailgating Grill

Click image to order tailgating grill

This is a tailgaters dream! We recently went to Penn Sate for a football game and a friend of ours had this. It was so amazing to watch him whip up breakfast, then lunch as well all on this little griddle. Then turns out my son went out and bought the exact same one for himself. It’s perfect for camping, tailgating, picnics. super compact and easy to clean. This is the 17” model for $70, there is a larger 22” one available as well for $120. Link I provided is for the 17” model. If you don’t believe me yet it has fabulous reviews on Amazon.

Came highly recommended!! Waterproof electric razor for your unmentionables. I know it’s not your everyday gift but seriously men need this! The trimmer is $50 but you can get this entire gift set for $75, includes the trimmers, boxers, and two shaving products. If you don’t need all the extra stuff just go with the razor it self for $50.

Click to order My personal favorite men’s gel

If asked the most universal Men’s gel to recommend it would be this. It has a nice hold with out being SO stiff, and enough hold were it doesn’t feel like there is noting in your hair at all. Also never leaves white flakes. Stays all day, with out looking so “gelled “. I sell so much of this in the salon. If your man doesn’t prefer a gel look below for my favorite pomade option!

Love this! Nice hold, Matte finish. Great for guys who prefer a stronger holding pomade with a matte look. Little goes a long way. Really work it into the hair then style as usual. Another popular item at the salon i work at. If your salon carries it i always recommend purchasing from a salon, but if all else fails i provided link to order.

Click image to order Pistachio Bowl

I know this is a quirky one BUT first time i saw this I was like this is so cool!!! It’s essentially a bowl in a bowl, one for your shelled Pistachios and the shells get thrown into the bottom bowl. So neat, i love this gift and i know not all men love pistachios but a lot DO so makes a cute gift with a big bag of pistachios. Good for Grandfather gift. ($12 )

I keep hearing every guy wants these this year. Personally I love my dupe better which is on my website , BUT since some people prefer the name brand product (which i totally understand) i added this to the list. I didn’t provide the link because you should get them directly from apple if you ask me.
Click image to Order Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

JBL is a well know, and trusted, Bluetooth speaker. don’t believe me check out the 7,000 reviews on Amazon. My son loves his JBL speaker. This one is waterproof! Sooo think by the pool, on the beach, lake side, while tailgating, that special someone will get a lot of use out of this. Always a great gift idea.

Boy wouldn’t it be so nice to not have to have someone come “give you a jump” if your battery dies. Well the WeeGo to the rescue! This tool allows you to jump start your car without the need of another car. Trust me i have been in this position many times and i wish i had this. Makes a great gift for a new driver. Good to have in any home. $50. For this size but there are larger sizes available as well.
