2023 Holiday Gift Guides
Holiday season will forever be my favorite time of year, but that doesn't mean it also can't come with some organized chaos when it comes to holiday shopping. Ahead of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I wanted to share this year's carefully curated holiday gift guides to help make checking off your list a little bit easier.
When it comes to gift giving, I always try to be really intentional with who I'm buying what for, and while I create these guides to give YOU thoughtful gift ideas, I also create them for me and end up shopping off of each list for family & friends! I hope these are helpful!
Have you visited the Holiday Hub? Check it out for even more gift ideas.
My pick: we get so much use out of our LL Bean Canvas zip-top travel totes and always use them for long weekends or road trips. It's an under-$50 gift that can be customized and even filled with some smaller gifts for something a little extra special!
My pick: the Aura digital photo frame is extra special if parents/in-laws don't live nearby. Any family member can upload photos via the cloud directly to the frame and parents can enjoy seeing new memories each day.
Runner-up: my mom loved Legacybox and it was such a special way to take old slides and video tapes and convert them into digital memories. We had so much fun watching them all back with the family.
My pick: if there's one thing I wish I could give my mom, it's more time to relax and feel really luxurious. I love this boujee towel warmer!
My pick: although Yeti coolers are on the pricier side, they make a great joint sibling gift. My dad loves his & gets so much use out of it.
My pick: chances are, guys are not buying themselves something nice to travel with. Joe loves the Herschel Weekender Duffle - it's the perfect size for a weekend trip.
My pick: the chirp wheel foam roller is a game-changer and we love ours! It comes in 4 different sizes to target different parts of the body.
My pick: North Face hiking boots are a great gift that will upgrade any outdoorsy guy's shoe collection. They're waterproof and suitable for hiking - just under $150!
My pick: Masterclass is such an underrated gift idea and one that both Joe and my dad have loved. It allows you to take courses from experts in their fields from anything to cooking with Wolfgang Puck to guitar with Carlos Santana — a really unique gift for someone who has a lot of hobbies or is passionate about learning!
My pick: comfort is key! Joe loves Wolf & Sheppard sneakers because they can be worn to work or out to dinner & drinks.
My pick: the Calpak Clear Toiletry Case is one of the best toiletry bags! It comes in both a small and large size; I love the large for longer trips because it fits full-sized items perfectly.
My pick: UGG platform booties are THE it shoe of the season and one you know will get lots of use (especially for the upcoming season!)
My pick: this matching Pajama Set is one of the best I've found! Perfect for the homebody, it's cozy, stretchy and the quality is unmatched.
My pick: my all-time favorite Maracuja Juicy Lips are available in a set of 4 for less than the price of 2! They're great to have on deck for touch-ups + hydration. I keep these in every bag!
My pick: the Salt & Stone Body Duo smells incredible and is a gift any hostess would love. The set includes both the body wash and lotion set! If I'm bringing a gift to anyone hosting, I always love to find something small like this and gift with a bottle of wine!
My pick: this woven black tote bag is one of my favorite Amazon finds! Sleek, elevated and great for everyday.
My pick: the Lululemon Align Leggings should be a staple in any fitness girl's closet! They're super soft, breathable and lightweight.
My pick: the Mango Coatigan has been a staple in my closet for years. Its the perfect elevated coat and I've gotten so much use out of mine! I recommend sizing down 1 size.
My pick: the Sleepy Tie is my latest obsession for preserving my blowout overnight. It's a satin-covered scrunchie that is super gentle on the hair and keeps your blowout or curls perfectly intact overnight. Check out my overnight results here.
My pick: a simple but game-changing gadget, the Anker Portable Charger is a powerhouse, charges quickly and holds multiple charges for your phone. We love ours!
My pick: the Beis black cosmetics set comes with both a large and small pouch for just under $40. They're super durable and high quality; I keep multiple sets in my everyday bag and also use these when traveling!
My pick: if you're looking for a fun and unique gift under $50, this vintage bluetooth radio is it. It adds a retro aesthetic to any space and is small enough to keep bedside!
My pick: I bought the Hit the Slopes Fleece Jacket for both myself and my mom last season and we're still living in it. It's oversized, so I recommend sizing down but incredibly warm and cozy, and great with leggings!
