This is the gift guide that I look forward to curating every year. To me, it’s the best of the best gift ideas because these are either items that have been given to me that I’m obsessed with… or things that I’ve personally given and the recipient has loved.
Gift Guide: My Favorite Gifts to Give in 2023
The Cheese Board Deck
Inspire your gift recipient’s next gathering with this beautiful, helpful card deck that offers 50 creative ideas for styling and presenting food platters for any occasion.
Hues and Clues board game
Listen, I know board games aren’t for everyone, but for the friend who’s always planning game night, definitely check out this gift idea. This game is SO fun, especially if you’ve got a strong design eye.
4 oz Spice Jars Set with Bamboo Lids
I upgraded our spices collection to these matching jars this year and there is nothing more satisfying! Not only does it make cooking so much easier, it’s a simple organizing project that made me feel really accomplished. I love this gift for that friend who’s way too busy to organize the entire kitchen, but still needs a win. Plus they are a practical, too!
Set of 4 Chromatic Champagne Flutes
Glassware is actually one of my favorite gifts to give because I’ve found no one actually splurges on the good stuff for themselves! This set comes in some seriously pretty colors, too. I recommend this gift idea for that friend or family member who just moved into a new home or newlyweds.
Italian Handheld Stapler
I know, I know. It’s a stapler… but it’s a COOL stapler. I’ve had one of these for easily a decade and it’s the best stapler IMO. Plus it’s super-cute in a throwback sort of way. The perfect gift for your design-loving friend who is only into things that are ~aesthetic~.
Marin White Candle Holders for Taper and Pillar Candles
Given our perpetual power outages, I like to think of myself as a candle holder connoisseur. Which means I can confidently say these are the best. Each one can holder either a 3″ pillar or a taper candle so you can switch it up! I love this gift for a hostess and you can fancy it up more with a set of beeswax tapers, too.
Voluspa 12 Days Advent Glass Candle Gift Set
Voluspa makes such high-quality candles and their fragrances are always SO good. I love this splurge gift idea for anyone from your bestie to your mom!
