Below is this year's list of some of my favorite places to shop & ideas for gifts. I love collecting ideas throughout the year so that, when the time comes, I'm prepared to treat loved ones to things I'm almost certain they'll enjoy.
Some of these items I already own, a few are on my wishlist, and others I am considering to give as gifts this year. All are great, simple examples of items that many people would enjoy.
Curated + Timeless
The shops listed below have a variety of beautifully curated goods that meet high standards of quality, form, and function.
Supporting small businesses & local artists is a great way to go for holiday gifts. The shops listed below make heirloom-quality pieces that would make beautiful additions to your or a loved one's home.
Below are some of my very favorite shops for sourcing gifts (for others and myself). This doesn't include all of the amazing shops who sell on Instagram - my favorites can be found in the "Recent Favorites" highlight on my Instagram profile.
Goods with a Shelf Life
Gifts that have a limited lifespan are great options for those hard-to-shop-for friends and family members. Think edible items like baked goods, chocolates, artisan salts, honey, wine or spirits, as well as soaps, candles, and fresh flowers. Food52 is one of my favorite places for inspiration, some fun examples below. A gift card for a favorite restaurant, photography session, organization session, concert venue, or other fun experience is another excellent option, especially for friends & family who don't need (or want) physical gifts this year.
While gifts can be a fun and special way to celebrate the holidays, nothing beats quality time spent with the ones you love. Here's to a wonderful holiday season!
