My last gift guide is here just in time for allll the sales! If you’re looking to splurge on some recipients (or perhaps yourself), this should help get the ball rolling. I own many of these items myself and others are things I’ve coveted for years. I’ll be back with a roundup of some great Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales but lots of what’s featured in my gift guides are heavily marked down already! If you missed it, here are the others:
And there’s more under the “Holiday” tab of my site, including festive recipes and previous gift guides with items that are still in stock!
Estelle Colored Glass was one of my favorite discoveries this year and a colorful stemmed set is high on my wishlist! The heirloom-quality glasses are hand-blown in Poland and are designed to be reminiscent of colorful vintage glassware.
I’ve raved about ChappyWraps before and with good reason—they make the most well-loved blanket in our home! They’re a favorite gift for us to give; Chappys are different than any other blanket on the market and the perfect combination of durable (seriously–they wash so well) and aesthetically pleasing, thanks the variety of gorgeous prints available.
This bag is a great alternative to a traditionally-sized leather tote. I own it and the quality is great! It’s large enough to hold a 13″ laptop but small enough to carry when you need something petite.
I think this crossbody has been on my gift guide for multiple years but it’s my most used purse and is has held up so well. It’s roomy enough (it fits my Kindle, and then some), can be monogrammed, and comes in several colors.
The RL flag sweater is a classic, signature item for the brand and is something I eyed for a long time before adding it to my closet last year! It’s 100% cotton and the perfect amount of festive; I see it worn most on the 4th of July and most recently on Election Day. It feels like a splurge since it isn’t something I wear as often as other sweaters in my closet, but it’s been a great addition to my wardrobe and will remain for years to come!
For the wanderluster in your life, it doesn’t get much better than a Gray Malin. They’re offering a huge discount of 30% off (including framing) and the hard part is really just trying to narrow down prospects from his incredible collection.
It’s no secret how much I love Serena & Lily (our side cart and barstools are some of the most loved items in our space) and they make some amazing classic home accessories, too. This tray comes in two colors and would be great for both indoor and outdoor use, not to mention a great functional decorative piece on a coffee table or credenza. Nearly the entire S&L site is 20% off right now with code OURGIFT (through tomorrow).
Another item on my own personal wishlist: an India Amory tablecloth. There are so many beautiful prints (and a lot of blue and white!) I and think they would make a great gift for someone who likes to entertain. The best part of a printed tablecloth is having the option to keeping other decor minimal–key for impromptu gatherings!
I can’t even begin to express how excited I am for our Theragun to arrive! They’re having a great Black Friday sale and we finally ordered one this week. My back and shoulders are consistently in need of a massage and if you’re shopping for someone who feels the same or is a fitness junkie, this may be the perfect gift.
Shoes are definitely a more personal gift but if you’re confident knowing the recipient’s shoe preferences, it doesn’t get much better than Sarah Flint! Their Perfect Pumps are fantastic (the anatomical arch support works wonders) and every pair I’ve tried has been incredibly comfortable. You can take $50 off your purchase with code SARAHFLINT-BAMONICAD50. They’re currently having a buy more, save more sale and my code works for that, too.
It wouldn’t be a gift guide without a Dudley Stephens fleece! Full disclosure that I do work for the company now, but I was a die hard fan before that and continue to stand by how amazing everything is. You can’t go wrong with a signature turtleneck–this is the Park Slope, the Duffield is fantastic for men, and be sure to refer to the Fit Guide!
Something I’ve come to appreciate more as I’ve gotten older is good sheets. 100% cotton has always been a priority for me–I run so hot and can’t imagine flannel!–but lately I’ve gotten even more discerning beyond simply having cotton pairs. Brooklinen has been seemingly everywhere and has a Black Friday offer, and we love our L.L. Bean set.
There’s really nothing like a Mason Pearson hairbrush and I’m a full convert after getting this exact one for my birthday a few years ago! It distributes the oils from your scalp in a way that just makes your hair look better and healthier, and they’re designed to last for years and years. Definitely worth the splurge!
The Fortnum & Mason hampers make me swoon every year (I have one lucky friend in the state who’s company gifts her one each holiday season!) and this year is no different. There are tons of options at different price points and while shipping to the States is £25, these would make a great gift for someone who’s difficult to shop for or loves the finer things.
I purchased this Procreate course from Isla Simpson and can’t wait to take it when work and life settle down a bit in the coming weeks! It caters to everyone–not just designers–and would be great for anyone looking to do more with their iPad Pro.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me rave about the Our Place “Always Pan” the other day. We got a couple of months ago and use it almost daily! The pan is designed to replace eight pieces of cookware (we immediately parted with three as soon as this arrived) so is great if you’re shopping for a small space with limited storage. It’s ceramic/non-toxic and is a dream to clean!
