Tis the season for gift guides! In all disclosure, I had really big plans for creating an amazing gift guide portal of sorts here on the blog, but at the last minute, I had to scrap it because it just wasn’t working and kept breaking my website! BUMMER. But I still wanted to share a ton of gift ideas with you this year, especially an updated version of my go-to gifts to give for the holidays. That was one of my top guides last year, so be sure to check it out. Lots of helpful ideas there still + here are even more:
My Favorite Gifts to Give for Pretty Much Anyone on Your List
Eat What You Want by Gaby Dalkin
There’s no secret that I am obsessed with this cookbook. I use it nearly every day and love the variety of recipes plus how approachable they all are. This year, I plan to give it to pretty much everyone on my list!
Do yourself a favor any get a pair of these cloud socks for yourself as well! They are truly the softest socks, perfect for cozy nights in. And they are a great stocking stuffer!
Looking for a gift that’s personalized, ethically made and less than $100? I highly recommend this necklace from ABLE — plus, use code JOANNABF30 for 30% off through Monday, 11/30!
Panettone from Roy
A good friend sent me this and it was absolutely INCREDIBLE. I cannot tell you enough how delicious it was… and just such a beautiful, amazing gift idea. It’s totally luxurious, but won’t break the bank either.
Nécessaire Body Lotion
I’ve been using this lotion for a few months now and it is SO GOOD. I love that it’s fragrance-free, not stick at all, absorbs quickly, and leaves skin feelings incredibly soft. This makes an awesome, luxurious stocking stuffer, too! (I also recommend any of their other products, too, especially in the Sandalwood fragrance.)
Pig of the Month
Oh man, I was sent this recently as well and OMG. SO MANY delicious treats like bacon, caramels, sauces, and ribs. I have a good friend who’s really into food, so this will be my gift to her in 2020.
Brooklinen throw blanket
I shared this throw on Instagram recently and it’s truly a love of mind. It’s so cozy, not itchy at all, and would make a great gift for someone who has it all but need a bit of luxury in their lives.
Some good friends gave us this once after we used theirs on a camping trip. We used it to get a campfire going and give the fire oxygen. I made fun of it at first, but now that we build a fire every day to keep warm in the new cabin, I love this tiny gadget! It’s an awesome gift for someone outdoorsy and up for adventure who loves a campfire.
I love giving practical gifts, especially when they are this good. This massager is super-versatile and perfect for working knots out (especially on shoulders). Oh and it’s a wonderful unisex gift!
Molly Hatch Mug
I am a long-time fan of Molly Hatch’s artwork and ceramics. I own a version of this mug and, lemme just say, it’s the perfect size. It’s pretty big and holds a lot of coffee — just the way I like it. Plus, Molly’s art is just so charming!
So these are just a few of my go-to gift ideas, aka my favorite gifts to give! I have a lot more themed gift guides in the works, so be sure to stay tuned and check back in for even more holiday shopping ideas. And, as always, if you have any gift guide requests, let me know!
