Looking for a great gift for all of the lovely ladies in your life? I’ve got you covered with lots of great ideas in lots of price points. Don’t forget, you can always shop my full gift guide any time between now and the end of the year. I’m updating it as often as I can with new gift ideas and changing things as they sell out!
I have gotten some questions about wrapping paper too. My favorite brand for paper is WH Hostess, they have the cutest designs. Last year we did the tartan wrap sheets the Stewart plaid, and the wreaths with navy and white ribbon. I might change it up with lotus flower this year! I also love their gift stickers to elevate any package.
Ok on to the gifts!
Port & Polish Pillbox, $20 (BPA-free and certified plastic-neutral): When this brand first started out a few years ago, the founder sent me one of their chic little pillboxes. People still ask me about it in my DMs to this day! When I was pregnant and TTC and taking a million vitamins, they didn’t fit in here but now that I’m back to normal, I’m using it again and it is one of those little things that brings me daily joy.
* Port & Polish is a female-owned business
Blue & White Napkin Set, $58: I would be thrilled to find these under my tree! We love using cloth napkins every night for dinner, a habit I picked up from my mom growing up. Megan, the founder of Cailini Coastal, is a friend of mine and her shop is full of beautiful coastal home items if the napkins aren’t your thing.
* Cailini Coastal is a small, female-owned business
Corkcicle Wine Glass, $32: My neighbors and I often walk to each others’ houses for dinners with our kids and we all use these Corkcicle travel wine glasses for cocktails and wine on the go. In the summer, Anel and I bring them to the beach for sunset dinners!
Lemon Stripes x Lo Home Ginger Jar, $89: Lauren (of Lo Home) and I put our hearts and souls into this collection of ginger jars. She and her team make them all in her Oklahoma studio and they’re just the loveliest group of women. We will most likely be discontinuing these jars at some point in the next few months so get one while you still can!
* Lo Home is a small, female-owned business.
Molly Baz Cookbook, $19.50: I’ve been following Molly Baz at Bon Appétit for years and was so excited to buy her cookbook. It is the first cookbook I’ve read where I truly want to cook every single recipe in it. Her photos are gorgeous and the names of her dishes make me laugh. It’s what millennial cookbook dreams are made of!
Necessaire Hand Cream, $20: No muss. No-fuss. Beautiful branding and a great product to boot. It soaks in quickly and hydrates thoroughly without any greasy aftermath. My nighttime routine wouldn’t be the same without it! It’s unscented which is a nice bonus too.

Cookbook Holder, $155: The French blue and wood are just so gorgeous, aren’t they? This would look lovely in any kitchen and can hold a tablet or cookbook for recipes. It’s on my personal wish list!
* Cailini Coastal is a small, female-owned business.
$145 $99: Another great kitchen item, the internet-famous Always Pan never disappoints. It’s also currently on sale for $99 which is a great deal! Read my full Always Pan review for more info.
* Our Place is a BIPOC, female-owned business.
Haverhill Custom Ring, $395: I’ve been a fan of this local New England jewelry brand for years because of the way you can customize their jewelry to make it special. This specific ring can be made with any amount of stones in whatever colors you want! All of their jewelry is made in their Rhode Island studio with a quick turnaround of 3-7 business days.

Mug & Warmer Set, $88: Comes in 12 colors. Cute for a home office or regular office!
Sherpa Slippers, $49: These cozy slippers are making their rounds on the gift guide circuit for good reason. They look like two clouds to slip your feet into!
Chappywrap, $135: My Chappywrap collaboration blankets are sold out except for a few of this pattern. But not to worry, they’ll all be back in December! Chappywraps (in any pattern, not just the Lemon Stripes Collection) make incredible gifts. They’re soft, cozy, cute, and last a lifetime.

Rainbow Chopsticks, $39: Anel and I use chopsticks for almost every dinner and these would totally brighten up our table.
Monogrammed Pouch, $79: This has been a top seller on my gift guide from day one. It’s a sweet gift and the size makes it super versatile for use.
Wrap Bracelet, $150: My friend Ashley (founder of ASHA) makes the most beautiful jewelry here in Connecticut. She created this fabric wrap bracelet last year and it’s been a best-seller ever since. I wear mine whenever I go out with friends! It’s a fun and pretty addition to any outfit.
* Small, female-owned business
Cheese Board Deck, $17.99: A friend gave me this yesterday and I had to throw it on this list. Each card in the deck has a picture of a cheese, dessert, snack, or holiday board and the back has instructions and a shopping list. Great for entertainers!
* Small, female-owned business
Bala Bangles, $50: I have been wearing mine pretty much daily on my ankles for walking the dog or on my wrists as I clean the house. These 1 or 2-pound wrap weights give you the perfect amount of boost to make everyday tasks into a workout.
Facial Steamer, $80: Also on my personal list, this facial steamer hydrates and cleanses your pores. You can use it for at-home facials or add essential oils like peppermint and eucalyptus if you’re under the weather. A great gift for anyone skincare-obsessed!
