Rifle Paper Co. Notepads for Boss Babes $12
Located downtown, Denizen Home + Plant + Gift carries so many small items ideal for filling the stockings of your hard working gal pals and these Rifle Paper Co. Notepads are perfect for your busy BFF. I go through notepads like they're going out of style with my every day to-do lists and these have fun floral patterns and sweet gold foil.

Finding a neat gift for your friend who designs and creates cool things can be tough, but how could she not LOVE these gorgeous blown glass ornaments. They're actually made by a small artisan company called GlitterVille Studios. She'll surely cherish them for years to come!

Caffeine & Kindness Long Sleeve T-Shirts for Your Coffee Addicted Counterparts $18
Theses long sleeve t-shirts are comfortable and perfect for wearing to the gym or just around the house for a lazy day of working from the couch. Black is one of my favorite colors and this particular shirt did not fade the first time I washed it.

Vibe Coffee is my favorite place to hang out in Elizabethtown (Read: They have high speed wifi). In addition to coffee-related apparel, Vibe sells coffee beans, teas and homemade baked goods. You can even get a gift card if you know your friends frequent the coffee shop. Connected to Vibe, Herb & Olive offers a variety of farm fresh veggies and locally raised beef, chicken and pork plus a ton of oils, vinegars, herbs and spices for the ladies who love to cook in your life.

Stoneware Holiday Dishes for the Perfect Hostess $5 each
Not only does Fine Home & Garden have the most gorgeous furniture in town, Angie carries some perfect holiday gifts. No charcuterie board could be complete without mustards, marmalades and honey and there is no better way to make it festive than these perfect holiday dishes featuring Mistletoe, Juniper, Holly and Pine. If you don't even own a charcuterie board, you're a bit behind the times, but not to worry because Fine also carries the coolest charcuterie boards in all shapes and sizes.
Capri Blue Volcano Candles for the Gals at Work... Or Anyone $25
Previously not available in Elizabethtown, my favorite candles in the world are Capri Blue Volcano Candles. They smell fabulous and I almost died when Fine Home & Garden stocked them. Anyone you gift a Volcano Candle will love it. There is actually a larger size for $45 I believe. She has them in black, white and this sparkly red glitter festive option just for the holidays.
Bath Salts & Scented Soaps for Harkworking Women $7 / $9
What better way to relax after a long day at the office than a luxurious bath? These bath salts and scented soaps from Aromas Artesanales de Antigua are available at Fine in a variety of scents and are the perfect addition to a gift box or basket.

Knit Hat for the Fashionista Friend $12
Check out this cute and cozy knit hat with the flashy tuft of fur. The hats are lined with fleece, so super warm, but more than that, they will compliment virtually any snow day outfit. Imagine a chunky sweater, cozy leggings and some duck boots. I am not a fan of skiing, but my husband Aleks is, so looking cute on our yearly ski trips is a must to make the experience more enjoyable and this hat is a perfect fit. It comes in ivory, grey, red, black and navy (not shown).

Running Socks for the Athletic Ladies in Your Life $15
I have to confess I hate working out and I couldn't keep up with my husband running if my life depended on it, but the owner at Etown Running Soles is awesome and always helpful at suggesting the best options even for those of us who are less athletically-inclined. I personally love these socks. They come in a variety of colors and the cushion on the ankles protects my heels from blisters when I do work out.
Body Glide Foot Glide for Anyone Who Wears Shoes $7
Also available at Etown Running Soles, Body Glide Protective Skin Care products are amazing. Options available locally include Body Glide Body - The Original Anti Chafe Balm, Body Glide SPF 30 Sunscreen Balm and Body Glide Foot Glide Anti Blister Balm. Everyone needs sunscreen and anti-chafing is good too, but the Foot Glide is my favorite because it helps protect your heels and toes from blistering in athletic shoes AND heels.
