The holidays are right around the corner, and I’ve been busy browsing the internet to look for the best gifts for my friends and family. Scroll down to see what I’ll be giving to my family and friends this year.
1. Cozy Loungewear
Pandemic or not, we all love some fuzzy, comfy loungewear to get us through the cold weather. This matching tank and pant set from Lovers+Friends on Revolve is what I want to wear on the morning of Christmas. You can match with your friends in this blue Lovers+Friends tank top and pant set.
2. Gold Jewelry
I find gold jewelry to be the most essential staple accessories thus they are a no-brainer gift for anyone who wants to look fancy this holiday. Some of my most worn gold jewelries are from Missoma, which are super good quality and affordable. This Missoma gold curb chain necklace is the perfect layering necklace. For your more fashion-forward friends, this gold t-bar chain necklace is the perfect gift that will spice up their holiday outfits.
3. Anything from Biossance
Biossance is one of my favorite clean skincare brands that holds a special place in my heart. I’ve been religiously using it for years and I want everyone around me to try it if they haven’t already. The Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil from the Uplifted & Bright Set is literally magic packed in a bottle (a really cute one), either will make a heartfelt gift for your loved ones who deserve some glow.
I’ve been using this Beis cosmetics bag when I’m on the go, whether it’s a work trip overseas or a sleepover at a friend’s house over the weekend. I love the spacious fit with compartments that hold all my makeup and skincare in one place. Although not everyone is traveling this holiday because of the pandemic, this Beis cosmetic bag will be a delight to receive as a gift that gets them dreaming about the next destination.
5. Teddy Coats
The warmest holiday gift goes to a cuddly teddy coat. The Max Mara teddy bear coat is one of my favorite winter wardrobe staples throughout the years. I’d be thrilled if I received it as a holiday gift, to be honest. Here are some more budget-friendly fur coats you can shop for others or yourself: Apparis Daryna coat, Monki teddy coat, Uniqlo teddy bear coat.
6. A Good Book
A book makes a special gift for someone you know well. Here’s a couple of books I’ve read since quarantine that I absolutely loved: Where the Crawdads Sing, The Book of Joy, The Goldfinch, When Breath Becomes Air. Check out more book recommendations from us here.
7. Individual Ceramic Vases
Everyone is re-decorating their houses during the lockdown and it is the perfect time to give them your hand-picked home decor. I love the soft shape of this minimal ceramic vase and you can never go wrong with this beautiful off-white color. I bought a few Woman Vases by Andrea Kollar for my new house and I am also gifting them to my loved ones for holiday. This handmade female body vase on Etsy and the Urban Outfitters female form vase are my top picks.
