Gifts I'm Giving This Year

Each year I do a very concise number of gift guides. I personally don’t think it makes sense to do a zillion gift guides – that’s just overwhelming! I wanted to share the gifts I’m actually giving my loved ones this year which will hopefully make your shopping experience a whole lot easier! (And let’s hope they aren’t reading this post haha…)

Gifts For Him

For Thomas – I’m getting him an Away suitcase because he travels a TON for work and keeps commenting how much he loves my Away bag whenever we take trips. It’s funny I have several roller suitcases that are WAY more expensive than my Away bag, yet 99.9% of the time I reach for my Away bag. I’m also getting him a beautiful card case (linked several others below – really loving this one) because he prefers a thinner style wallet versus a traditional size one and his current one is falling a part! And lastly – this beautiful water resistant jacket from Banana Republic.

For my dad – I’m getting him this fun record player and records because he just moved into a new home and loves classic music. I’m also getting him a round of golf at The Phoenician – an amazing course in our hometown in Arizona, and this quilted jacket for chillier evenings.

Gifts For Her

For my sister – She always takes my skincare products when she comes over, so I’m getting her this Tata Harper skincare essentials kit with some of my favorite products from the line that I know she will love! I’m also getting her a Le Creuset pot because she loves to cook for her new husband!

For my mom – My mom is super sentimental and loves photos of us all over her house. I’m going to get her beautiful Ralph Lauren silver frames (also love these) with some of my favorite pictures. I’m also getting her these cashmere lined leather gloves and a Delta flight gift certificate so she can visit her best friend in London!

Gifts For The Dog Lover

For Charlie – He needs a warm sweater for the winter – and I’m eyeing this cashmere cable knit sweater and this cute little monogram one for him!!! I love this plaid dog bed, and I will of course be spoiling him with some of his favorite treats!

Splurgeworthy Gifts For Her

For myself – These are things I want, but haven’t gotten around to buying so they’re on my mental wishlist. I’d love to try the Augustinus Bader Rich Cream. I tried the regular cream from the line a few months ago and to be honest, I wasn’t impressed with it. BUT everyone says I should have gotten the RICH cream because it’s wayyyy better – so I’d love to see what the hype is all about! I’m dying to try SKIMS shapewear by Kim Kardashian. I’m a sucker for simple, neutral underwear – and I feel like her core control thongs would be amazing for tight dresses!!!

I need a new Iluminage silk eye mask – and this set sounds heavenly. I’ve been using this eye mask for years and mine is on it’s last leg! This pillow case + eye mask set is also really beautiful and comes in pink or black. And in terms of splurge worthy items… I would love this vintage Hermes Kelly black bag, or this croc one, this silver Fleur du Mal kimono and matching slip dress, and this Nordstrom Made cashmere sweater.

    Love the gifts for him section! I always struggle buying things for my boyfriend. He is so easy going it sometimes makes it difficult to buy things for him but he always appreciates a gift!
