On each of my published gift guides, I have a few personal favorites. Some are items I purchase often (Diptyque room sprays, candles, coffee table books) and others are things that have been a hit with friends and family. For the last rush of online shopping, scroll below for my top picks from each category. Shipping times are getting tight and the countdown is on!
The Vuori Ponto pant for men is sold out often for good reason. The slim silhouette is flattering, and the fabric is incredibly soft. Cashmere socks may not be on someone’s list, but they’re always loved and appreciated.
Both the Thereagun and Hyperice are incredibly popular devices (and gifts) to help work out kinks and muscle tightness. They’d be especially welcome now with massage availability so limited. (I’m getting the mini for travel.) AirPods or other wireless earbuds are a must for workouts, but they’re also great for listening to a book, quiet downtime with a meditation guided app like Calm or a handsfree call.
My personal travel essentials include things that bring comfort when away from home. Sleeping with an eye mask and a pillow spray ensure a good night’s rest. I’ve raved about a cashmere wrap for years. For airplanes, hotels, restaurants, it’s a must have packing item for me. Beyond travel, it’s a great gift for lounging at home. I’ve given several to my mother over the years and she loves wrapping one around her shoulders while watching television or reading in bed.
The above three items are personal beauty favorites. I LOVE the Supracor mitt, am obsessed with the rose scented Diptyque hand cream (Chanel too) and Aesop body scrub. All would make great stocking stuffers! More options here if above are sold out.
Lastly, it’s the little things that make a workspace at home special. Keep fresh flowers or greens on a desk contained in a pretty vase, upgrade note pads and paper goods with something more personal, and have a luxe throw handy to keep the chill away in style.
