I love everything about the holiday season – the lights, the merriment, the cookies – but one of the things that I get most excited for it the anticipation of watching my loved one’s open the gifts that I’ve selected for them. It feels so good to treat the one’s I love to something special, but finding the perfect gift isn’t always easy. Here are some ideas that I hope you will find helpful as you track down the best gifts this season.
P.S. Just 20 more days until Christmas!
For the Lover of Coziness
1 – If you didn’t already notice from the images above, I am really into red plaid right now. This scarf is both cozy and festive, and it comes in a variety of colors incase you prefer plaid that’s pink or blue or black and white.
2 – I LOVE that brooches are having a moment right now, and if you’re going to spend the season bundled up in chunky sweaters and festive loungewear you might as well dress it up with some sparkle! Brooches are especially awesome when worn in a cluster of 2-3, and this brooch set from Bauble Bar is perfection.
7 – Everyone needs a great pair of Christmas pajamas, and this flannel pajama set pretty much takes the cake.
For the Lover of Desserts
3 – Homemade gifts make the best gifts, and I don’t know anyone who would be disappointed to receive these gingerbread maple muffins. Packaged up in festive gift wrap, they’d make an excellent hostess gift and are a great gift for friends and coworkers, too!
8 – Another delicious homemade idea: bourbon, brown butter, and vanilla bean shortbread cookies. Everyone loves a delicious batch of homemade holiday cookies, but everyone really loves a delicious batch of homemade holiday cookies with booze. Which brings me to the next gift idea…
For the Lover of Booze
4 – Candles are always popular gifts, but a candle that smells of your loved one’s favorite cocktail makes for a memorable gift. I personally would love to receive this whiskey and gingerale candle, but there are candles to suit everyone’s tastes.
5 – A nice bottle of liquor makes the perfect hostess gift for this season’s holiday parties. Extra points for locally made, small batch liquors. I’m a big fan of Hewn Spirits’ rye whiskey, which is hand-crafted in small batches in my hometown in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
6 – This adorably cozy wine bottle bag elevates a nice bottle of wine or liquor into a truly thoughtful gift. It’s available in a variety of styles, and be sure you also check out this shop’s sweet Christmas decorations and cozy pillows.
