Winter Wish List – 14 Holiday Gift Ideas

Currently in California spending Thanksgiving with the family, while also pondering what I’ll be buying for gifts and for myself this holiday season.

You may notice with most of the items, the theme is All Things Cozy…

Here’s whats on my list:

Who doesn’t love a great coffee table book? The latest from Kelly Wearstler, iconic Interior Designer (and uber stylish mom) is chock full of gorgeous art and inspiration

Shop ‘Evocative Style’

I make everyday at home just a little bit luxurious by lighting my favorite scented candles by Jo Malone. I am also a big fan of their bubble bath and perfume. Most people have a certain perfume they like to stick to which is ‘their scent’. Not me. I want everything! I love smellies! I’ve even thought about trying out some of the best pheromones perfumes too, which are supposed to be the new craze. We’ll see. All I know is I’m super easy to buy for in that respect.

Shop Jo Malone Candles

Sometimes all you need is a glam statement earring to *make* the outfit.

Shop Earrings

Tatcha’s gold spun lip balm is as pretty as it is practical.

Shop Lip Balm

Imagine slipping your feet in to these plush babies every morning.

Shop Slippers

I’ve shared my love of this toner here before, but I have to again because it is just that good. I’m obsessed with this clinically proven Ayurvedic skincare line – I use this toner daily, as well as the Ritual Body oil.

Shop Sahajan Skincare

A teddy coat for when I have to go out but still want to *feel* like I’m in bed with a cozy blanket.

Shop Teddy Coat

Sipping hot tea by a cozy fireplace is probably the only reason I love winters in the midwest.

Shop Teapot

These boots are the perfect low profile combat boot that could work well with a dress or jeans.

Shop Boots (similar style under $150)

Perfume is such a wonderful gift because scent holds memories for a long time. Le Labo makes it even more special with their personalization option. Fleur D’oranger is my favorite at the moment, it is bright and fresh yet still sophisticated.

Shop Perfume

One of the best part of being a grown-up: wearing good pajamas every night – its part of my self-care routine.

Shop Pajamas

I love the nostalgic feel I get playing a vinyl record. This player would take the classic and make a modern statement in any room.

Shop Record Player

Jewelry always fits. This chain link piece is on trend but it is truly a classic. It can easily be worn short or long, and charms can be added for a truly unique look.

Shop Necklace

Everyone needs the perfect soft throw blanket to cuddle up with on the couch watching netlflix.

Shop Throw Blanket

EVEN MORE IDEAS:

Gift certificate to a spa or salon

Maid service for a house deep cleaning or Home Organizing service for any trouble areas like kitchen or closets

Set of new luxe bedsheets

Matcha Tea with Tea Set

Cookbook with a high quality olive oil

A creative experience: Painting lesson, cooking class, floral arrangement lesson, pole dancing (anything really!)

Professional photography session – do it for the ‘gram!

Tom’s 50th birthday was all that and a bag of chips! Thanks to our amazing friends and family for making this milestone so special. The cake almost burned the house down with all those candles 😉 but we survived! Happy birthday to my @tom_sandberg! Love you! You didn’t peak in the 90’s you’re still out here getting cuter! ❤️ #birthdayparty #90sparty
Cheers to the weekend! 🥂 Currently in paint covered yoga pants prepping for Tom’s 90’s theme birthday party - more on stories! Thanks @sabrinacostahomes for the candid 📸

Friday mood…
Join me while I gather eggs and check what’s growing in my veggie garden🪴 🐓 Veggie update: Currently my zucchini is slowing down (praise the Lord! 🙏🏾)Tomatoes are slowly but surely ripening, I have a bed of sweet potatoes and yellow onion, and some butternut squash, eggplant, and bell peppers, and one pumpkin so far! Cucumbers had a moment early summer but seem to be done now. I also tried to do grapes but they were a fail. Every year in the garden is an experiment and a learning experience! #veggiegarden #chickencoop
I like big blooms and I cannot lie! 🌸 🥰 #hydrangeas
Ratatouille with a side of air fryer chicken and some crusty bread 🤌🏾 I called it ‘lazy girl’ Ratatouille but ‘busy girl’ would have been more accurate - because you save a lot of time by cooking the eggplant, zucchini, and peppers separately. Easy, fast, and fresh - give it a try! #dinnerideas
5 years old and already way too cool for mommy!
