Holiday Gift Guide: For the the Homebody

I’m back today with my second gift guide of the season! Last year, my cozy gift guide was a big hit and this year a few of you said you wanted to see it again. So, I’ve rounded up some holiday gift ideas that are perfect for that friend/relative/co-worker etc. who is a total homebody and is all about staying cozy!

Obviously, pajamas, robes, and slippers are a definite must when it comes to a cozy gift guide. The slippers are actually on my Christmas list this year because I’ve heard great reviews and I think they’re sooo cute. This UGG robe is also such a great idea—a luxurious gift for the person who likes to relax at home.

Two items that I’ve mentioned before and will probably continue to tout as great gift ideas are the Barefoot Dreams blanket and the Diptyque candle. If you don’t own a Barefoot Dreams blanket, do yourself a favor and buy one ASAP. If you’re not too picky about the pattern, this striped one is on major sale. Unfortunately, the most popular patterns don’t usually go on sale. But anyway, I fight both of my cats for this blanket every day—it’s so so so soft. On to the candle. Diptyque makes luxurious (expensive) candles that are something a person might not splurge on for themself. Which makes it the perfect gift! There are so many different scents but I’m partial to vanilla.

Two other great gift ideas are journals/notebooks and coffee table books. A personalized notebook is such a cute idea and pairs really well with another gift like a scarf or a mug. And coffee table books are so thoughtful if you really know the person’s interests/aesthetic (obviously I would want to read the Little Dictionary of Fashion!).

So that’s it for this week. What gift guide would you like to see next? Let me know in the comments below!

2018 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE NO. 3

Happy Thursday! With Christmas right around the corner, I thought I’d share another holiday gift guide with you all! This week’s guide is for presents that won’t break the bank. Whether you’re doing a secret santa or white elephant or are on a tighter budget, here are 9 cute gifts to give this year.

  1. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE scarves. I wear them all the time in the fall/winter, even if I’m not wearing a jacket. I thought this scarf was so cute with its subtle leopard print and cozy material.
  2. How cute is this jewelry/trinket dish?! I love buying little trinkets for my dresser and this one is perfect!
  3. You really can’t go wrong with a cozy slipper (or sock!) for a gift. Not only are they (usually) cute, but they’re so useful in the winter. I know I don’t leave my bedroom without something on my feet.
  4. Candles are another great gift for the holidays, especially if they’re a seasonal scent. I love giving a candle and either a bath bomb or a sheet mask for a spa-inspired gift.
  5. What better gift is there than the necklace you can’t stop seeing in your Instagram feed? There’s a reason everyone is loving this initial necklace, because it’s so freaking cute! Get your trendsetting friend this gift this year — just make sure she doesn’t have it already!
  6. Coffee table books are a great idea for a gift, especially if your friend is interested in something particular. I thought this astrology/cocktail book from Urban Outfitters (they have so many!) was such a fun idea, and I know Anthropologie has fun coffee table books as well.
  7. This little on-the-go palette is so great! I actually have this and am almost out of the highlighter colors. Get this for your beauty-loving friend.
  8. Bath soak is another great spa-inspired gift. Like the candle, it pairs well with a bath bomb or a sheet mask, or even some chocolate!
  9. If you’re looking for a gift for a jewelry lover, these hoops are such a pretty find! TBH, they’re on my list now!

I hope this guide was helpful and inspires you to pick the perfect, budget-friendly gift this season! Let me know in the comments what other gift guides you’d like to see!
