Happy Monday friends, it’s gift guide season! I know some people hate doing gift guides but I actually really love it. I just love gift giving and nothing brings me more joy than finding the perfect gift for someone. I decided to do things a little differently this year. Instead of spacing my guides out week by week, I’m posting all of them over the next 7 days. I’m doing this because a) I know some of you like to shop early and b) I want you to be able to see all of them before Black Friday/Cyber Monday in case things go on sale. You can find them all in one place here (along with holiday decor, entertaining and style content). I’m also adding gift ideas in several different categories to my Holiday Gift Shop here.
One other thing I’d like to mention since it is the season of giving. I recognize this is not always a time of joy for everyone. Many families struggle just to be able to put food on their table let alone purchase gifts. This year Craig and I have “adopted” a family for the holidays. We will be getting the items on their holiday wish list and hopefully bringing some joy to their Christmas morning. I am not suggesting you have to go out and do this, we all have different priorities and budgets, but I encourage you to find an organization in your community to help this holiday season. There’s no donation too small to help a family, a child or an animal in need. You can find your local food bank here. If you are local to RI, you can learn about Child & Family’s Holiday Giving Program here. During a time when it can feel like there’s a lot of ugliness in the world, a little love and kindness goes a long way. Thank you so much friends!
ONE: Pretty much anything anything from Missoma is a GREAT gift for holiday. I doubt there’s many, but if any gents are reading this, I promise you, you’ll win Christmas. Just don’t delay too long in placing your order, I had a few people (ahem: dudes) send me texts last year a week before Christmas saying, can I still buy that horn necklace you have? Come on man.
THREE: I LOVE trying new skincare, especially clean brands. Why not treat your bestie to a gorgeous set of hydrating skincare products just in time for winter.
FOUR: The always classic Madewell tote. Whether you give it as a gift or add it to your own list, you can’t go wrong. I’ve had my for years and it’s still a favorite. I love it in the black. Plan ahead and get it monogrammed if you order from Madewell.
FIVE: One of my favorite sheet masks (to get and to give). Perfect for travel,the brightening mask gives an instant boost after a long flight. They’re also 100% biodegradable and made of natural fibers.
SIX: A splurge-worthy gift that the very lucky recipient will have forever. If you’ve been wanting to treat yourself, let the holidays be your excuse. My White & Warren travel wraps go everywhere with me and I wear them year round.
SEVEN: This book was given as a gift to me and I absolutely love it. Filled with recipes and self-care rituals it not only looks beautiful on my coffee table but I love flipping through the pages any change I get.
NINE: Wireless headphones that look as good as they sound.
TWELVE: My standard go-to gift for just about everyone and anyone. I fell in love with Candlefish on a visit to Charleston and have been a huge fan ever since. With safe wax blends, lovely scents and pretty packaging they make a gorgeous gift.
