2021 Holiday Gift Ideas: My Favorite Things

Last year, I got a set of drinking glasses for Christmas. There wasn’t anything I really wanted and they’re beautiful, so I was thrilled. Today, I’m going to pull an Oprah and share all of my favorite things that I would have loved to receive as a gift if I didn’t already own them. 

Paravel

Weekender

This is one of those things I had my eye on for a while but we're not traveling. It's actually a great size for a laptop bag, so I caved.

Mason Grey

The Softest Robe

I have more than 2 of these since it has to hang dry and Kate uses me as a human napkin. It's super-soft and doesn't feel sloppy.

Anecdote

Fir Balsam Candle

This candle smells like Christmas and blends in with your decor. Priced really well and makes a great gift, too.

Margaux

Ballet Flats

Timeless, beautiful, and women-owned.
The perfect gift.

White and Warren

Cashmere Wrap

A splurge, but so worth it. I have it in 4 colors (that's all I really need to say, right?), have owned them for years, and wear them any time I go out in the cold.

Eufy

Robot Vacuum

You know how much I love our beloved Princess Cake Pop. She cleans our floors every night while we sleep, and our jute sheds so much less than it once used to.

Summer Hours

Clean Perfume

This perfume is so light and airy.

Cashmere Beanie

One of those warm, essential but chic winter accessories that is both functional and stylish.

Blueland

Cleaning Essentials

I've been using Blueland products for over a year now. I was sold on the branding but stuck around for the quality and brand's mission.

Staub

Dutch Oven

This is one of those gifts that's great for everyone. I had it before I cooked and it not only inspired me to cook more, but looks lovely sitting out on my stove.

Kypris

Moisturizing Face Oil

I've never been this committed to a single beauty product and my skin has never looked better. I use it twice a day religiously.

Lou and Grey

Signaturesoft Sweats

Buy just the sweatshirt or joggers (or both if you love a sweatsuit as much as I do). I have this in 3 or 4 colors and wear it all the time.
Shop now

Dyson

Supersonic Hair Dryer

I've had this for years and years, and it's still going strong. A splurge, but one that's worth it.
Shop now

Olaplex

Healthy Hair Essentials

Another clean brand I've been using for years.

J. Crew

Sweater Pants

Ok, so I have the sweater pants from J. Crew and Loft – both are great. The Loft pants are a bit cozier but if you're looking for a versatile pant for work, the crop on these makes them the winner.

Spesoul

Fuzzy House Shoes

These aren't fluffy inside but they're under $20 and great for getting out of the shower/not walking around barefoot. And they feel chic!

Ferm Living

Ripple Glasses

These are the glasses I got last year. I still love them and use them whenever I have a cocktail.

Kosas Sport

Tinted Lip Balm

I love this clean lip balm and have it in a few colors.

Petite Plume

Wide Leg Pajamas

I love this brand for myself and the girls, too. The wide leg PJs are so chic!

Burleigh

Teacup and Saucer

Coffee doesn't actually taste better in this teacup but it sure feels better.
Shop now

Cuyana

Makeup Bag Set

A classic must-have that I've owned for years.
Can't go wrong with this one.
Shop now

Dana Rebecca Designs

The (Under $300) Diamond Necklace

I've had this for years and couldn't love it more. It's simple, timeless, and looks good with everything.

Vana Chupp Studio

Custom Silhouette Ornament

My silhouette art and ornaments are some of my most prized possessions. Get a silhouette of a baby, pet, wedding photo, or your first home.

J. Crew

Cashmere Socks

A splurge, and a beautiful, cozy gift anyone would love.

Herbivore Botanicals

Coconut Body Polish

A winter essential for dry skin – this smells like heaven (there's a rose scented one if coconut isn't your thing but it's definitely mind) and leaves my skin feeling super-soft.
Shop now

APL

Slip On Sneakers

I ordered laced APLs but these arrived, I tried them on, and that was that. They're so easy to slip on and off, no untied laces, and so comfortable, too.

  • Great list! I really love those glasses but are they really small? I am considering either these or the ones from Crate and Barrel you shared awhile ago that are kind of similar. The website says these are 2oz which seems small for a cocktail, or are they referring to the weight of the glass? (lol, this feels like a ridiculous question, but here we are!)
