Thanks to everyone who shared positive feedback on my first two gift guides: $50 and under and $25 and under! This one hits a slightly higher price point, and my final one with “splurge” gifts will be live on Friday. Happy shopping!
We were torn between splurging on a Staub or Le Creuset, or going with a more budget-friendly Lodge, and settled on the latter after Claire sung its praises! We’ve had it since late spring and it’s been wonderful. If you’re considering getting or gifting a dutch oven, I can’t recommend this one enough.
There’s a reason Bombas socks are so popular, and I really can’t believe I held off getting them for as long as I did! They’re the only socks I wear now (aside from a couple novelty pairs or when I need something thinner for a certain shoe) and considering they get washed and dried multiple times a week, they hold up insanely well. Expensive socks are an indulgence, and therefore make for a great gift!
I first saw this Mark Sikes’ dinnerware collection in the spring or early summer and fell in love immediately. The pieces are pricey so I couldn’t justify purchasing the entire set at once, and instead picked up four dessert plates which we’ve enjoyed using this fall. While I’d love to build on those and end up with some more eventually (especially the mug or serving bowl!), individual pieces or gifting a set of two or four stand great on their own.
I love Truffle products and this case is perfect for makeup, skincare, storage, purse organization, and everything in between; I use it to corral my chargers and cords for travel!
I bought two pairs of Vuori joggers earlier this fall when it turned cool enough to transition out of the linen shorts I wore “to work” (at my desk) every day in the summer. They’re really lightweight (key if you get warm easily like I do) and most notably, don’t sag at the knees!
I think I get questions about this mat every time it pops into frame when I’m Instagram Story-ing in the kitchen! It’s so comfy to stand on and comes in several sizes. We used to have a rug in the kitchen instead but it got so gross and was impossible to keep looking nice. They’re having a sitewide sale right now, too!
A simple Barbour dopp kit that was probably marketed for men but appeals to me personally, too. It’s made to last and cases like this are both great for travel as well as functional for makeup/product storage when we’re stuck at home!
It wouldn’t be a list of my favorite things/a gift guide without Lake Pajamas! These are truly the best if you appreciate simple, 100% pima cotton PJs. I have three pairs!
Many of us have so much “stuff” and if you’re like me and are constantly trying to reduce clutter, a thoughtful food or drink-based gift is always a good idea. I’ve always been intrigued by Eataly’s food basket selection and love the variety available for under $100.
I haven’t hear of anyone who has a Thom Kelly Charlotte sweatshirt and doesn’t LOVE it! It’s fitted without being constricting and I wear it lightly tucked in with jeans or joggers, or untucked with leggings these days.
This Cuyana case has been on my wishlist since some time last year when I started using a card case over a large wallet due to the ease of moving it from larger commuting bag to smaller purse on the weekend. It’s basically an elevated twist on the classic card case!
