And now for this year’s gift guide! I have so much fun putting these together, even though I always feel like I’m buying into the feverish consumerism of the season a little bit. That said, I base each on these gifts on someone I know personally, and each one is something I really would buy for each of my friends and family if budget was no consideration.
So here are 10 great gifts for every person in your life–I hope you love them as much as I do.
1 For the coffee and tea lover: This Rifle Paper Co. coffee and tea calendar is beautiful–you could bundle it up with a bag of your favorite coffee and a cute mug, but it’s perfect on its own, too.
3 For the stylish dog lover in your life: This awesome Puppy Uppers treat jar from Jonathan Adler.
4 For your favorite cat lady: Charlotte Olympia’s Kitty flats are perfection–adorable and stylish.
5 For your best friend, the consummate hostess, who always lets you come over and hang out: A candle that smells gorgeous and will look lovely in her living room.
6 For the new or soon-to-be mom: This amazing illuminator, which will enhance that gorgeous pregnant or new-mama glow. (I own this and cannot recommend it enough.)
7 For your brother, who loves a great cocktail: The Carry-On Cocktail Kit, which means he doesn’t have to sacrifice quality when he travels.
8 For your father, whose love for Star Trek is unwavering: This Enterprise cheese board and some of his favorite cheese. (I’m buying this exact thing for my dad this year.)
9 For your mother, who has helped you plan your entire wedding and is basically your rock: A skincare set that will allow her to pamper herself a little (which she totally deserves).
10 For your soon-to-be husband, your favorite person: An original piece of art by his favorite comic book artist. I did this for Rob and pretty much won Christmas/our wedding with this one (and followed my own pro tip, too).
