The holidays are all about spending time with those you love and showing them just how much you appreciate them! If you’re shopping for a fellow Jersey girl, we’ve gathered all the best gifts she’s sure to love! Most of these items aren’t going to be found at your local mall, so you’re giving her something unique that speaks to who she really is and lets her look and feel like a queen!

For the Real Housewives of New Jersey and Manzo’d with Children fan, you can’t go wrong with Caroline Manzo‘s bath bombs, available in her Etsy store, The Friendly Monkey Soap Company. While her holiday bombs are sold you, you can choose from an array of colors and scents, including this forest animals bath bomb gift pack.


For your mom, sister or best friend, you can give them a very indulgent treat with Caroline’s holiday handmade bath bombs bakers dozen gift pack, which includes every scent you could imagine: Oatmeal, milk, & honey, lavender, gingerbread, candy cane, pink party, electric lemonade, cucumber mint, wildflower, citrus sky, jasmine rose, confetti, holiday wishes and chamomile! You’ll be certain that yours is the gift that keeps on giving.


For the woman who never leaves the house with bare lips, give her one of the new JWoww Cosmetics lip stains by Jenni “JWoww” Farley, in colors like Jersey Rose, Careless Nude and Marilyn. Check them all out at

If you’re buying for the woman who has (almost) everything, why not get her a New Jersey pride necklace so she can truly sparkle? This gorgeous one by designer Maya Brenner, which comes in sterling silver, 14K white gold, 14K rose gold or yellow gold even lets you customize it with a diamond highlighting your giftee’s location.

Speaking of jewelry, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has plenty of offerings made by her in her Etsy shop, Nicole’s Craft Room. One of our faves? Her best friend bangle bracelet!


Morning coffee is what keeps pretty much every woman going in the morning, and what better to drink it in than this special two-toned holiday mug from Snooki with her catchphrase Shake What Ya Mama Gave Ya on it?


When it’s cold and snowy, who doesn’t dream of going on vacation? Give your favorite jetsetter this “Vacation. Por Favor.” t-shirt from Envy by Melissa Gorga. You can buy it online or head on over to her shop in Montclair and browse the reality star’s wares for yourself. Or you can bring whoever you’re buying for and let her pick out her own gift!


Fashion designer Rachel Antonoff, sister of musician Jack Antonoff, designs more than clothes! Her fun “you don’t own me” flask is the perfect gift for the always-on-the-go party girl who wants to flaunt her independence.


For the friend who just got a fabulous new job, treat her to this Rachel Antonoff “from the desk of” business card case so she can network anywhere, any time.


For the ultimate Garden State gift, what about a New Jersey scented candle like this New Jersey Pine Barrens candle by Willow Moon Candle on Etsy?
