11 Very Special Gifts

When it comes to Christmas gifts, I really love taking time to find something that I know the recipient is going to love. To me, there’s nothing better than watching that person unwrap your gift and see their face light up with joy and excitement! It’s true that giving really is better than receiving.

But on the receiving end, I always think that one big present is better than lots of little ones. If you think the same way, this gift guide is for you! Whether you’re looking for a really unique or memorable big gift to give this year or on the hunt or something special for yourself, these gifts are sure to impress!


Let’s be real, a handbag is something use everyday, right? So isn’t investing in one really good one worth it? I got my first really fancy bag, the Chloé Marcie bag, after we got married and it still remains my one of my all time favorites!


When it comes to decorating, one of my favorite things to shop for is rugs (the other is art, which we’ll get to in a second!). Rugs add so much personality and warmth a room and can really make a house feel like a home. Etsy, Lulu & Georgia & West Elm are a few of the best spots to find gorgeous rugs!


I’m a bit of a shoe fanatic, so receiving a really gorgeous pair of shoes is always something I’m happy with! A few of my favorite investment pairs are my Lowland boots, Newbury boots, and pretty much everything I own from Loeffler Randall.


I’ve always been an art lover, and as I get older, decorating our house with statement pieces that are stunning and intriguing has become more important to me. Minted is one of my favorite places to shop for photography and art prints.


When I was younger, getting beauty products would have been as bad as getting underwear from my grandparents, but as I get older, I absolutely love getting beauty products and skincare! This year I became a bit obsessed with skincare and there’s so many amazing products out there to try. Still on my list to try are La Mer and more Tata Harper products!


If you love to cook or know someone who loves cooking, a thoughtful kitchen gift is perfect. You can never go wrong with a Le Creuset Dutch Oven! I just won a Kitchen Aid Mini Mixer and I’m totally obsessed with it—this size is perfect for smaller apartments too!
