    Gifts for those who love to RELAX

    True Botanicals Body Care Kit

    Their body oil is the stuff of legend, and is included in this cute little body care kit, along with a delightful sugar scrub and stress relief aromatherapy roll on. Yummy!

    Vitruvi Porcelain Essential Oil Diffuser

    This one is on my wish list this year. There’s something so soothing about the subtle aromatherapy wafting through your home.

    Parachute Home Cloud Cotton Robe

    This is on everyone’s holiday gift guide, and for good reason. The soft waffle fabric is so luxurious and cozy. Get one for you and your loved ones.

    Jenni Kayne Shearling Mom Clog  

    It was love at first sight between me and these clogs. I must have slippers to wear around the house in the winter and these could not be more stylish.

    P.F. Candle Co. Soy Candle

    My faaaaavorite candle on earth. The scent is so comforting. I stockpile these and always have one on-hand for gifts and to burn in the house. Teakwood & Tobacco for life!

    Jaimi Brooks Values Deck

    I love this little exercise in exploring the values that are most important to me. It’s a perfect way to end this wild year and begin the next year with more clarity. I return to my values deck and repeat this exercise very 6 months or so to check in with myself. It’s a wonderful way of bringing mindfulness into your life.

    Fabletics Take Care 2-Piece Outfit

    This little set is so cozy and easy, I am going to live in this until February! 

    Bose Noise Cancelling 700 Over-Ear Headphones

    Sometimes you’ve just got to tune the word out, put on some tunes and zone out. There is no unwanted noise getting through these babies. And they’re so pretty to look at too!

    Amber Lewis for Anthropologie Jayme Mugs

    I love the rustic, hand constructed look of this mug set. They are the perfect vessel for all of that hot chocolate everyone is consuming this season.

     

    Gifts for those who love to COOK

    Brightland Olive Oil – The Duo

    This is the hottest olive oil on the market these days. But it is actually worth the hype. So delicious!

    Halfbaked Harvest Cookbook

    I discovered Tieghan’s Instagram and became entranced with the beautiful imagery. I’ve since tried a number of her simple and indulgent recipes and all I can say is I’m obsessed.

    KitchenAid 5qt Artisan Series Tilt-Head Stand Mixer Matte Fresh Linen 

    I got one of these for my wedding, and if I could do it all over agin, I’d get it in this fresh linen color instead of the turquoise I asked for. It was a colorful time for me, what can I say? Whatever color you choose, this is a baker’s staple.

    Le Creuset Signature 9.5 qt. Oval Dutch Oven 

    A dutch oven is such a must for those wintertime stews, roasts and casseroles. This one is the grand dame of them all!

    Food52 Adjustable Rolling Pin

    What a genius idea! As a newish baker myself, one of the toughest parts for me is getting the dough to be the right dimensions. These adjustable rings take all of the guesswork out of dough sizing!

    Williams Sonoma Copper Measuring Cups

    Everyone needs a measuring cup eventually, and they might as well be fabulous like these copper numbers. I have a set and I absolutely love them.

    Our Place Always Pan

    I believe cooking with pretty things will make me want to cook more. At least, that’s the excuse I’m giving my husband for why I NEED this multi-purpose pan! It claims to replace 8 pieces of cookware. I’m sold!

    Williams Sonoma Acacia Cutting Board Set 

    The wood grain of this cutting board set is so gorgeous. I love when something is functional AND stylish.

    Hedley & Bennett Apron

    These colorful aprons adorn top chefs, television cooking show contestants and home chefs alike. This LA-based, woman owned brand’s mission is so incredible – to empower every level of “chef” to stand tall with dignity and pride for their craft.

     

     

    Gifts for those who love to ENTERTAIN

    West Elm Stepped Form Ceramic Vessels

    An interesting vessel as centerpiece requires only some simple greenery to create an interesting centerpiece. These stepped pieces are gorgeous, interesting and easy to fill.

    RMBO Collective Creative & Resourceful Tablescape Design & Styling E-Course

    How could I create a holiday gift guide without including my own e-course? I truly do love sharing the art of tablescape design with event professionals and home entertainers alike. There is something magical about creating a welcoming place for loved ones to gather and connect. I break down the fundamentals of setting the table, share my secrets to creating major impact using decorative elements and give tips and tricks to make sure your hard work gets noticed.

    Heather Taylor Home Napkins

    If you love a casual plaid napkin, this line is for you. Beautiful prints in a multitude of colors and scales. I love this nutmeg plaid.

    West Elm Reclaimed Wood Waxed Dough Bowls

    I’ve bene so into the dough bowl lately, as it’s a beautiful, casual, unexpected vessel to create easy centerpieces. Just add a few natural branches and seasonal fruit and you’re good to go. We’ve recommended these for many of our virtual styling clients.

    Gathering: Setting the Natural Table

    Kristen is a friend with an amazing talent for floral design and her new book is a masterpiece in creating a warm and inviting table.

    Washed Linen Tablecloth

    Every home entertainer needs a pretty washed linen tablecloth in their collection. This beauty is fine European linen with the perfect amount of texture.

    Wood Tea Light Candle Holder Set

    These are the cutest little wooden pots to house simple tea lights. I believe in building levels of light on a dining table and these are the perfect cuties for the lower level light.

    borrowed BLU Helix Taper Candle

    For the dramatic upper level light, these textured tapers do the trick. The textures are so interesting and my favorite is the helix shape.

    The Little Market Clear Tall Glass Pitcher

    Hand blown and etched in Mexico, this delicately detailed pitcher will be the talk of your next gathering.
