Girlfriend’s Guide To Gifting

12.16.2019

The Holiday Season is in full swing. We are eggnogging and tree-trimming, decking the halls and making merry under the mistletoe. Our Holiday goals are sorted. Our gingerbread house is open for business, our ugly Christmas sweaters are good to go and we have enough Bailey’s Irish Cream to float a boat. The only thing left on our Christmas List is Holiday gifting. We’re Elum and gift giving is our name and gift wrapping is our game. So we put our heads together and came up with our Girlfriend’s Guide To Gifting. Sister a princess? We’ve got you covered. Bestie never leaves the house without her selfie stick? We know exactly what she needs! We believe in celebrating the powerful, amazing, funny and unique women in our lives. Read on to see what we’re giving our girl crew this season.

Instagal

We all know this girl. She’s the one who makes us wait to eat our appetizers until she’s taken the perfect foodporn pic. If you tease her about over-sharing, she’ll start counting out loud on her fingers. “Moonstruck, Burlesque, Witches of Eastwick. You’re right I have been watching too much Cher.” We love our Instagal because she believes everyone has the right to be Photoshopped and is smart enough to know her own worth. Light up her life with a Fotodiox Selfie Vlog Pro Ring Light and help her coffee stay as social as her media with our adorable Doggie Social Ceramic Mug.

Bougie Babe

Uptown girl living in an uptown world? We know a couple of those! We love our Bougie Babes because when they receive invites to the best places in town they let us tag along. And if you happen to be in her bedroom when a Bougie Babe is clearing out her closest she’ll think nothing of giving you some TLC (Tom Ford, Louboutin, Chanel). Help your girl stay on point with our luxe and blingy Go Get ‘Em Tiger List Pad and her very own Bougie Babe Tee.

Homegirl

There’s no place like home. Who needs to go out when you can Doordash, Netflix and chill? We love our homies because PJs are their dress code and they never say no to wine in a box. Our Homegirls remind us to keep things simple in an increasingly cray-cray world. Help your Homegirl get her cozy on with an extra fluffy throw blanket and our beautiful Floral Lustre Exposed Bound Journal. A cup of hot chocolate, White Christmas on her playlist, and she’s good to go.

The Foodie

If it wasn’t for our foodie friends we would never have tried sous vide steak sashimi or made our very own radish kimchi. The Foodie always knows the chef at the hottest pop-up restaurant, and can tell us instantly what wine to serve with our chicken enchiladas (Champagne, who knew?) and why our cookies turned out so dry (too long in the oven, duh!). As Julia Child once said, “People who love to eat are the best people.” We love our foodies and plan on keeping them happy this Hanukkah with the one and only Sriracha Keychain and our Subtle Gems Weekly Eats.

Earth Mamma

No one gives hugs like Earth Mamma. You cannot leave her house without a week’s supply of chicken soup and some homegrown truths about the guy who ghosted you on Snapchat. She burned sage to purify your college dorm room after your toxic roomie moved out, and believes in you like no one else. We’re giving the Earth Mammas in our lives our Greeting Card Subscription Boxes this Christmas. They love celebrating others and we love celebrating them! #WinWin Click here to learn more about our greeting card subscription service!

Crafty Chick

She knits, she scrapbooks, she upholsters her own furniture: she’s the Crafty Chick and if you ever need help stenciling your dining room walls or building a shadow box to house your Backstreet Boys memorabilia she’s there with her paintbrush and tools. Girl knows how to get things done! Our Crafty Chick is a maker at heart so gift her with a charming Bees & Wildflowers Embroidery Kit and our Hi Daisy Iron On Patches. Let’s give her something to do!

Gym Bunny

She’s the one who phones us at 6am on Thanksgiving morning. “Meet me at the gym in ten. Let’s get proactive with the stuffing and gravy.” Our Gym Bunny goes everywhere in athleisure wear and will never take an elevator when a perfectly good staircase will do. We love her because she helps keeps us motivated and her butt in skinny jeans is our #1 body goal. The Fitbit Inspire in lilac will keep her looking snatched on her morning run and our Empowered Women Letterpress Art Print will let her know she inspires us every day. #YouGoGirl


Happy Holidays from all the girls (and guys!) at Elum. Here’s to friendship and family, good times and real connections, and to taking every opportunity to celebrate the strong and inspiring women in our lives.
