My Favorite Gifts to Give for Pretty Much Anyone on Your List

Debre Wallet

This ethically made, leather wallet is my daily carry and is perfect for everything from credit cards to cash to travel documents and a passport! I especially love that it holds a pencil. Plus, you can choose from many options for monogramming, making this the perfect personalized gift.

Mini Ponytail Palm

If you’re like me and all your closest friends live elsewhere, chances are you have to mail your gift… so why not take the easy route and have someone else do it for you? Especially because Bloomscape expertly mails gorgeous potted plants! I’m a huge fan of sending people easy-to-care-for houseplants and think of them as the gift that gives year round.

2022 Stendig Calendar

This iconic, oversized calendar is truly a classic and perfect for pretty much any work space. Be sure to act fast if you want to give one to someone, they always sell out really quickly!

Culinary Herbs Pin Pack

Pins are such a fun gift because they will make the recipient think of you every time they see it! I love this assortment of culinary herbs because they are just so cute — and feature original designs by one of my favorite local Seattle shops, Hemleva.

Mongolian Cashmere Robe

This is the perfect splurge gift for someone who works from home, but still wants to feel luxurious cozy in a cashmere robe! Quince is one of my favorite discoveries this year, especially their high quality, ultra soft cashmere pieces. You can’t go wrong with cashmere!

Oud Noir 6-Wick Candle

This is on my favorite gifts to give list because who doesn’t love a massive candle?? Especially because this one smells incredible, has a beautiful vessel and is shockingly affordable given how luxurious it is!

SodaStream Aqua Fizz Sparkling Water Machine with Glass Bottles

While not the most glamorous gift idea, I have this exact machine and I adore it. It’s perfect for the sparkling water fan in your life… and gives them the gift of sparkling water at the push of a button (reduces plastic bottle use, too)!

Osmia Organics Palo Santo Soap

Looking for the perfect gender neutral stocking stuffer? This bar soap is my absolute fave. It’s made of the best ingredients (olive oil, coconut oil, and shea) and smells absolutely incredible.

Piecework Puzzles

My love of puzzles is VERY well-known and by far, my favorites are from Piecework. They are soooo beautiful and awesomely challenging. Plus, there is such a wide variety of artwork to choose from, no matter who you’re shopping for!

Black Diamond Headlamp

In my humble opinion, everyone needs a headlamp! This is hands down my favorite and perfect for pretty much anything from outdoor adventures to emergency uses.

European Linen Duvet Cover Set

When it comes to gift giving, I like to treat my friends and family to special items they might not ordinarily splurge on… and one of my favorite gifts to give is linen bedding! This set is absolutely perfect and comes in so many great colors — and at a fraction of the price because it’s from Quince. We have a set and it’s worn so beautifully!
