HOLIDAY GIFTS TO SPLURGE ON
My Under $100 Gift Guide will go live early next week, but today I wanted to share some splurge-worthy holiday gift ideas. These are gifts over $100, the majority of which I’ve given or received over the years. I don’t buy a ton of holiday gifts over $100 (save for family/parents), but I pulled together this list if you have an item you’re thinking about splurging on. These would also be great for a group gift (we do this with siblings a lot) or maybe you just want to treat yourself! You can find my other gift guides here: Under $25 and Under $50.
We don’t have one of these (yet) but my Dad does and it is definitely worth the hype. These are amazing fire pits built to burn efficiently and without being super smoky. I LOVE sitting outside by the fire, even in winter, but I’m not a huge fan of smelling like a campfire for the next week. This is a great solution and it’s not super heavy so easy to move around.
Aura Digital Frame
We gave a digital frame to grandparents last year and it was a HUGE hit. This one is easy to set up and comes in a few different styles. What’s great you can invited unlimited people to share images, so siblings (for example) can all share photos with the grandparents and it’ll pop up on the frame.Bonus it has unlimited digital storage.
Cashmere Travel Wrap
Warm, cozy, luxurious, I could go on about the White & Warren cashmere travel wrap. I have a few and they make the best year round accessory. The hardest part is what color to pick. If you’re debating on a neutral, I always suggest going with what is more prominent in your wardrobe. If it’s earth tones, camel and if it’s blacks, grays, go with the gray, but you really can’t go wrong! Use code JESS20 for 20% off.
Harborview Herringbone Chappywrap
We have several chappywrap blankets and yes they really are worth the hype. They wash well, never pill, they’re thick, warm and great quality. I love the herringbone style (we have the original size), and the kids blanket in the lemon print is great too. We also have the oyster cove which is another nice neutral (nice to cover furniture when you have pets too).
Sezane Romeo Jumper
This half-zip knit from Sézane is just a DREAM. It’s a merino wool, organic cotton blend and the knitting detail is beautiful. I ordered this for myself for the holidays because it’s easy to dress up, but I will also be wearing it all winter long. I usually size up in Sézane sweaters, for this one I went with a small. If you are looking for something without wool, this organic cotton stripe sweater is beautiful.
One of my favorite woman-owned small businesses. Haverhill is a family owned company based in New England. They have beautiful jewelry (you probably have seen my birthstone necklace, I wear it everyday). A few more of my favorites include Use code JAK15 for 15% off. Haverhill also has several “Shop for Good” collections donating proceeds to various charities including Trevor Project and Color of Change.
I haven’t taken my Yearly Co bangles off since the day I got them almost two years ago. They’re absolutely beautiful, incredible quality and handmade solid 14k gold in Nashville from a small, woman-owned jewelry brand. My favorite bangles are the original, the twist, the decade and the milestone. Use code JAK25 for $25 off orders of $300+ (expires 12/10).
This Black, woman-owned jewelry business I shared last year deserves a place again because the pieces are so stunning. The brand was also an Etsy Design Awards finalist. There’s beautiful coin necklaces and choker styles to choose from.
Coravin Wine Preservation System
The Coravin is always a huge hit with wine lovers. It’s a wine preservation system that allows you to pour from the bottle without taking off the cork. The wine stays fresh longer so you don’t have to worry about finishing a whole bottle if you only want to have a glass. It’s very easy to use and for anyone that is a wine collector or just loves wine this is a great gift.
Ooni Pizza Oven
We finally bought one of these after I got so sick of hearing Craig talk about how much he wanted one. I have to say, it was worth it! There’s a bit of a learning curve using it, but once you get the hang of it the pizza you can make at home is SO good. They make gas powered and wood pellet ovens.
Our Place Always Pan
I gave this to a few people last year and it was a hit! It’s on sale under $100 right now but here’s my honest take. It’s a great pan for a lot of things, but it does have limitations. You can’t use it on very high heat or it will ruin the pain and it can’t go in the oven. We use it a lot for stir fry, curries, and eggs.
Wooden Mini Play Kitchen
We’re doing a one gift Christmas for Marin and decided on this adorable wooden mini play kitchen from Etsy. It has phenomenal reviews and I heard from someone who bought it that it was very easy to assemble. Parents also said it was the most used toy in their house for many years. Hoping it’s that way for us too!
7AM Enfant Stroller Footmuff
This stroller footmuff is an absolute life saver for cold weather. We do lots of walks, regardless of weather, and Marin stays absolutely toasty and dry in hers. We have the BOB stroller up in Vermont and it fits perfectly. It comes in several colors and has adjustable zippered length extensions to grow with your baby or toddler.
I’ve given this as a gift to Craig and my Mom and it was very well received. For anyone that deals with a lot of muscle soreness or stiffness this thing is a total game changer. It’s sort of a torture device in that it kind of hurts using it but has incredible payoff afterwards.
