I’ve got some very fun gifting ideas for a variety of humans: Home and Style Mavens Below (below), Home Cooks and Food Lovers, Beauty and Wellness Lovers, and, of course, Dudes

We all know that holidays aren’t about the presents. BUT giving presents can sometimes be the best, and I take great pride each year in helping some of you find the perfect thing for someone you love, especially the tough giftees. (I feel this pain. Everyone in my family is shockingly difficult to shop for.)

As always, my hope is that these gift guides help make shopping for your people a little bit easier and more fun. And reminder that there is zero shame in forwarding these gift guides to significant others/family members with the subject “Hint, hiiiint.”

Happy shopping, friends! And happy, happy holidays. Sending you an enormous virtual hug.

2023 Holiday Gift Guide for Home and Style Mavens:

Inoui Editions Scarves. I feel like the humble scarf has always been mocked as a copout holiday present, but I’m gunning for a scarf gift comeback. Inoui makes standout scarves in a variety of sizes and fabrics (cotton! wool! silk! cashmere!) that add a little oomph to any outfit. The cotton scarves also double as festive beach coverups.

Furbish Studio Needlepoint Pillows. Kitsch lovers will absolutely appreciate the pithy sayings and pop culture references beautifully stitched onto pillows of various shapes and sizes. Furbish also has a truly top notch assortment of tongue-in-cheek tabletop and home décor items that are worthy of perusal.

Isabella Acrylic Wine Glasses. These would make an excellent addition to any entertainer’s burgeoning glass collection. Whether they’re being used for water, wine, or any other libation, these are elegant enough for indoor use but durable enough for outdoor activities.

OSSA Pavé Disco Ball Wristlet. Who knew keeping track of your phone could be so glam? This bedazzled chain hooks into a phone case and is guaranteed to spark joy every time you reach for your phone.

Tucky Belt. This belt is a godsend for all who love a cleanly tucked aesthetic without adding bulk to the front of pants, skirts, etc. It’s an adjustable elastic strap lined with two silicone strips that will hold any top in place in a position you like, whether that means cropping a tee or invisibly belting a sweater over a dress (revolutionary!).

Jonathan Adler Kindle Cover. Chic readers of the world, UNITE.

Customized STAUD Denim Jacket with Pet Portrait. If you’re willing to truly spoil your favorite dog lover, having their pet embroidered on this perfect denim jacket is likely to secure your status as top gifter for life. You can also customize slippers, bags, shirts and sweatshirts!

Double Faced Jacket. I can say with certainty that I have never received so many compliments on a jacket before in my LIFE. I am literally stopped on the street and asked about this faux shearling, and it tickles me to tell people that…it’s ZARA! It’s cozy, the quality is excellent, and it looks about 10x more expensive than it is. Runs true to size for a relaxed fit.

Chefanie Topiary Place Card Holders. Teeny tiny tree place card holders!!! There has to be someone who shares my enthusiasm for these little trees that will add a dose of whimsy to any tablescape.

Heaven Mayhem Plate Mixed Earrings. Heaven Mayhem has fabulous vintage-inspired earrings that elevate any outfit. There are endless unique options to choose from, but I particularly love these “Plate Mixed” earrings to pull together even the most simple outfits.  

Juliska Puro Shell Tumblers. Whether filled with water, cocktails, or soft drinks these classic tumblers with a twist add instant cool (and texture!) to any place setting. And they’d look fabulous mixed and matched with colored or clear wine glasses. Should you have a martini drinker in your life, these puro shell martini glasses also speak to me.

Janessa Leone Hat. Give the gift of stylish sun protection! Janessa Leone is queen of the hat world, and this wide-brimmed stunner is one of her finest. It’s chic, durable, and I find the sizing generous, so the larger size should fit those with big (beautiful!) heads. I also love this style for those who prefer a bucket hat. And should you be gifting a regular traveler, consider my all-time favorite packable hat. The latter is J. Crew and is the only truly packable hat I’ve ever owned.

Katie Kime Lucite Trays. Equally fabulous for serving food and drink as they are as permanent home décor, these uniquely festive lucite trays are so much FUN. They come in all manner of patterns from holiday themes to toile, but I’m particularly enamored with this oyster pattern.

Mongolian Cashmere Polo. Believe the Quince hype, people. An elevated everyday basic, this luxuriously soft polo sweater is destined to become a go-to in any closet. (It’s also under $80!!!!) I’ve had mine for 6+ months, and it’s definitely top 3 in my sweater rotation at the moment. Runs true to size, but I sized up for a more relaxed fit.

Serena Shirt/Dresses. I would be a bad business lady if I didn’t suggest gifting the Serena Shirt, but I also truly believe that it would be a big hit for almost any woman in your life. Whether you go with the slightly dressier Classic Navy or Polished Ivory, or a bit more casual with the Essential Black, White, or Blue, this 100% silk button down is a piece to be reached for again and again. So much thought went into each of the details on this shirt—from making sure the button hits at just the right spot to show off the décolleté but not the bra to ensuring the silk drapes perfectly loose, tucked, and tied. The Serena Dress, which comes in Navy, Olive, and Vintage Paisley, has the same notched lapel as the shirt and is the ultimate wear-with-everything shirtdress in a gorgeous navy charmeuse, olive green, and paisley print. It can be worn loose or belted, either with the included sash or any other belt. Our goal with both the shirt and dress was to make the wearer feel beautiful and effortlessly chic, and I hope it can do that for someone you love this year.
