Happy holiday season my babes!
I love the holidays! I will be the first to tell you I am not the most religious person out there. BUT I will say that the spirit totally gets to me. This time of year is so freaking cold and dark (literally) that the best thing to bring light and love into your life is by spending time with your family. And drinking a ton of hot chocolate. But I swear the family ranks #1! I love how family can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Personally, I have my mom, dad, and siblings that I love (most of the time ha!), but I also have a chosen family consisting of a lot of my close friends from college. Just make sure to take some time for yourself, sip on some hot cocoa, and give everyone you love a big HUG. Also, spend sometime in an igloo because they just built one in DC and I am PUMPED!
Ok! Onto the gifts!
This gift guide features all of the goodies you could need for every person in your life. I picked out 25 super unique, fun gifts that your friends/family/gift lovers can actually use. Because, you know, we’ve all been there. From DIY cheese and kombucha kits, to candles and even a wine tumbler (oh yessss), these are ones you’ll be excited to share.
Take a scroll and leave a comment with your favorites! I hope you find some great picks in here. Have an amazing weekend and enjoy!
Finally, she does not have to spend a ton of money on kombucha (and maybe, will share some with you!) $45
These earrings are my FAVORITE to wear on the day by day! They make such a sweet simple gift, stocking stuffer, or secret Santa! $18
I would argue there is nothing better than receiving a cozy sweater. And this one comes in a ton of colors and has quite the TWIST! $65
I LOVE the quality of these leggings! They make such a statement on the mat because, let’s be honest. They make you look FIERCE AF! $125
I always have one of these on my person in some capacity. Not only do they have SPF 15 in em, but they give your lips the little bit of color they need! A great stocking stuffer for sure. $24
This sugar scrub is the first thing I think of when I think of LUXURY. Gift receiver, say hello to SMOOOOTH skin. $32
These are the types of things I never buy myself, but am secretly DYING to receive. Plus, if you’re on a budget, they won’t break the bank! $5
No lie. These are always the HIT of the party! It’s so cute to have a physical keepsake of your night and soothes my 90’s baby soul. $70
No more having to bring my phone into the bathroom again and worry I am going to ruin it. This sucker is also pretty durable, so feel free to bring it along to your next pool party! Because we know how that goes. $29
10. Roam Candle
These are candles whose scents are representative of cities. I might be biased, but I LOVE the DC one! The LA one is good too. $20
I have ruined one too many pieces of furniture to not have coasters. I suggest you give the gift of NO WATER RINGS! Plus, these babies are pretty cute. $40
I have made it incredibly well know how OBSESSED I am with the Instant pot. If you’re on the fence, just do it! I have the 3 quart pot and it is perfect for single people or couples! Plus, it makes beans from scratch in 30 minutes flat (WIN WIN!) $69
I mean, sometimes there is a crying baby on a plane and sometimes you just need a cocktail. If there is one thing I have needed this year when traveling, this is it! $24
My dad always jokes that, when he retires, he is going to own a goat cheese making farm. This is the perfect way to hold him over until then! $35
I got this as a joint parents gift last year and my mom was over the MOON! This is something that will last for a LONG time and it so useful in so many ways. I love making risotto, soups, and stews with it. A classic! $285
I tried these out last year when I was at Barry’s Bootamp. They might be the best cosmetics I’ve tried! This weekender set smells great for both men and women and comes in the cutest little pouch. Get ready to smell extra FINE! $45
I can’t think of the number of times I have thanked my past self for packing these on plane rides. First, I am able to charge my phone WHILE listening to music (damn you iPhone 7). But second, I can block out the person having an annoying conversation next to me. Win win! $39
Need I say more? I need like 10 of these. The person you gift this to better damn well be spicy! $35
I’ve been craving waffles lately and this brings me back to my childhood hotels. You know, where they have one of these bad boys and you can top your waffle with 5 different sauces. Personally, I used them all at once. That is both amazing and terrifying. $60
I love writing down the things I am grateful for every night before I go to sleep. Having a special journal allows me to keep my thoughts all in one place. Plus, the outline of this journal is absolutely lovely. $35
21. Picnic Wine Tote
I know you probably aren’t thinking about picnics right now, but how cute would it be to remember this exists once the weather gets warmer. It comes with two little wine glasses which, let’s be real, are the real reason you’re picnicing anyway $89
I have this and, I kid you not, it makes some damn fine espresso. I am so obsessed with this, y’all. Just put in your coffee, add hot water, squeeze, and you’re good to go! $50
Because this is one kitchen essential that, if you don’t have already, you probably need it. It is surprisingly affordable and, I swear, lasts forever. Who wouldn’t want a good skillet? Plus once you buy it, you can make my socca recipe! $16
24. Duffel Bag
I am obsessed with this duffel. It just looks so timeless. Plus, I find Herschel to have very durable products, so I am not worried about this getting a hole. And trust me, after my last duffle bag spilled my snacks everywhere, I know I need something durable. $100
And these? Aren’t they just the cutest darn things you ever saw? $13
BONUS: Egg Toast Glass Ornament
For years I’ve talked about my love of the Sur La Table Christmas ornaments! They make the best gifts. I wish I could buy all of the food-themed ones and put a tree in my kitchen. I’m obsessing over this one this year – how cute is the egg in the heart hole toast?! Adore!
