If the person you’re shopping for loves to cook or bake, you’ll find something perfect for them in this holiday gift guide for foodies. A collection of some of my favorite items and those that deserve a spot in the kitchen of every home cook or baker, there is a wide variety of items at many different price points. 

A collage of kitchen-related gift ideas.

Alright! Thanksgiving is well behind, so I’m guessing that you might have holiday shopping on your brain at this point, yes?

I will (embarrassingly?) admit that I keep a spreadsheet for Christmas and track what we’ve bought people each year, and keep a running list of ideas. Some years I am woefully behind on everything, and others I feel seriously ahead of the game. I’m smack dab in the middle this year; I’d say we’re about halfway done with our Christmas shopping. Where are you at in the process?

If you need a present for someone who loves to cook or bake, you’ll find lots of great ideas here at a variety of price points.

Happy browsing and good luck shopping!

The 2019 Foodie Gift Guide

Vollrath Half Sheet Pans – These may not be the flashiest of gifts, but they are an absolute staple! I’ve had non-stick ones, thin ones that warp, stone ones, and these Vollrath aluminum are the best I’ve ever used. I have four in my kitchen and am actually thinking of getting a couple more. Bonus! The Silpats (see below) and my favorite wire cooling racks fit perfectly inside!

Baking Stone – I have owned this baking stone for nearly 10 years and it’s perfect for making pizzas and breads – they bake up with perfectly crisp crusts. If you like homemade pizza, a pizza stone is a must!

Breville Waffle Maker – Another small appliance that I’ve owned for quite a long time and absolutely LOVE. I make waffles less often than I make pancakes, but this makes the absolute BEST waffles! I used to have one of those round Belgian waffle makers that you flip upside down, and this one beats it, hands-down.

All-Clad Saucepans – A couple of years ago, I upgraded my old saucepans and bought new 2-quart and 4-quart saucepans, and have been absolutely smitten. They heat so evenly and clean up wonderfully!

Lodge Cast Iron Skillets – I don’t think I’ve picked up a stainless steel skillet in years, to be quite honest. We have a 10-inch and two 12-inch cast iron skillets and they are used every single day in our house. At some point, there is always one on the stove! They are a very inexpensive investment, and I believe every kitchen needs at least one!

Graeter’s Ice Cream – If someone on your list is an ice cream junkie, consider sending some amazing ice cream straight to their doorstep. There are a lot of services and monthly clubs out there, but I’m partial to Graeters. They allow you to put together a 6-pack or 12-pack of different flavors, plus it’s my very favorite ice cream in general!

Zeroll Ice Cream Scoop – The absolute best ice cream scoop I’ve ever owned, it’s a dream.

Cookie Scoops – I own at least five cookie scoops, and I highly recommend at least one of each size if you’re a big cookie baker. I also use mine for portioning out muffin and cupcake batter; makes it so easy!

Breville Smart Oven – I hadn’t ever used a toaster oven before my husband and I moved in together, and now I have no idea how I ever survived without one! We use it multiple times a day, for everything from plain old toast, to reheating leftover pizza, broiling hoagies, and everything in between. The Breville has been our workhorse for years now and we LOVE it.

KitchenAid Hand Mixer – I love my stand mixer, but I use my hand mixer wayyyyy more often than my stand mixer. Most jobs don’t require a stand mixer, and this KitchenAid hand mixer makes easy work of virtually any cookie dough or cake batter.

Thermapen – This instant-read digital thermometer has been a staple in my kitchen for years… I couldn’t imagine cooking or baking without it! I use it for taking the temperature of everything from whole chickens, deep-fried turkeys, caramel sauce, candy, baked bread, burgers on the grill, and everything in between. While it’s on the pricey side, it’s one of the best kitchen investments you’ll ever make!

Spiralizer – If you’re a veggie lover (or maybe trying to get kids to eat more of them!), then a spiralizer is a must-have in your kitchen. The vast amount of different things you make with this is amazing (I’m partial to curly fries, naturally, ha!).

Air Fryer – I don’t have an air fryer yet, but everyone I know who has one LOVES it. Do you have one? Tell me about it! I have this one saved in my cart, but haven’t pulled the trigger yet!

KitchenAid Stand Mixer – The ultimate kitchen essential for anyone who loves to bake, the Kitchen Aid stand mixer is a classic, timeless addition to your kitchen.

Breville Precision Brewer Coffee Maker – We had been using a Keurig for years, but my husband (the primary coffee drinker at our house) was starting to want a more traditional coffee maker so we weren’t blowing through pods. We had the opportunity to try this one out and it is fantastic! There are many brewing options (including cold brews and single cups) and tons of tweaking you can do to create a totally custom cup of coffee. My husband said the coffee is infinitely better, especially since we’re now using freshly ground coffee beans.

Wolf Gourmet Electric Griddle – I replaced an old griddle whose finish was chipping off with this one last year and my pancake game has never been stronger, ha! Seriously, this makes amazing pancakes, and it’s great for griddled sandwiches like reubens, too. Love, love, love it.

Silicone Baking Mats – I used to fly through parchment paper, and I finally broke down and bought a Silpat to fit each of my four half sheet pans, one for my jelly roll pan, and one for my quarter sheet pan. I absolutely adore the way everything bakes up on them.

Laguiole Jean Dubost Stainless-Steel Steak Knives – We bought these a couple of years ago to replace the old steak knives we had. We had a mix of a couple of sets, half of them couldn’t go in the dishwasher, wood-handled ones always smelled kind of musty… so I went Googling and researching and this French brand came up time and again as the best of the best. I found this stainless steel set at Williams-Sonoma that are dishwasher safe and slice like a DREAM. Highly recommend if you’re in the market for knives (or know anyone getting married!).

David’s Tea – I actually don’t drink tea, but my mom loves it, and I bought her a gift set from David’s Tea well over five years ago now and she totally fell in love with it. I now gift her new flavors each year!

OXO Kitchen Scale – I am such a proponent of weighing ingredients when you bake, so a kitchen scale is an absolute must in my book, and this is the one I use in my kitchen. It can hold up to 22 pounds, so it’s incredibly versatile.

Wolf Gourmet Blender – My all-time favorite blender! I’ve used a budget-friendly KitchenAid as well as a Vitamix, and this Wolf Gourmet blender was the best in my book. Nothing gets stuck in the bottom and it makes super quick work of smoothie ingredients, frozen fruit, etc.

Instant Pot – Everyone I know LOVES their InstantPot, I just haven’t gotten into the craze yet. Can’t beat the convenience for the price!

Le Creuset Dutch Oven – This is a pricy investment, but absolutely worth every penny. I have had the 7.25-quart version for nearly 10 years and I use it multiple times a week… spaghetti sauce, soups, stews, chili, braising, no-knead bread… you name it and you can make it in a quality Dutch oven!

Scrub Daddy – My aunt turned me on to these a couple of years ago, and I’ve admittedly never been a sponge person, but they’ve converted me and I’ve used them ever since. You need very little soap, they rinse super clean and dry quickly. I love these!

Wusthof 7-Piece Knife Set – Good knives are one of my top three kitchen essentials, and perhaps THE biggest difference-maker in your cooking or baking prep. There are so many different brands, but Wusthof is my absolute favorite and this set contains all of the basics.

Breville Sous Chef Food Processor – I’ve owned this food processor for over five years, and while it’s definitely an investment, I’ve yet to use a better food processor. It is an absolute dream, and I love that it has a digital counter so you can easily see how long it’s been running (perfect for recipes that indicate a specific processing time).

All-Clad Slow Cooker – I have two friends who own this slow cooker and give it five massive stars. It holds an enormous amount of food, you can sear meat in it (no dirtying extra pans!), and it cooks perfectly and evenly. It’s on my own wish list!

TELL ME! What would you add to this list? I’m always looking for new ideas!

HAPPY SHOPPING!

2019 kids gift guide

So this might be my favorite year of the kid’s gift guide yet! Now that I have a newly 2 year old and an almost 5 year old, I feel confident in what my kids LOVE and enjoy playing with the most. You can see some of our other favorites here: preschool faves, toddler faves, children’s books, and more! I’d love to hear below what you would include on this list too!

2019 Kids Gift Guide

Globe 3D Puzzle. Max has been talking about getting a globe for months … we may start with this one!

Road Tape. My SIL had this over the summer and it provides hours of entertainment. It’s a big roll of tape that looks like a road, and I will tape down lanes in our foyer. The kids get so excited.

Magnetic Map Puzzle. I have wanted to get this for Max for a few years.

Shark slippers. Max is obsessed with sharks and he is getting these this year. How fun are they!?

Leap Frog Ice Cream Truck. Emilia got this for her birthday a few weeks ago and oh my gosh – the kids have played with it nonstop. They absolutely love it. It is very cute.

Marshmallow fleece. One of the best coats ever! It’s so warm but it’s also light at the same time.

Craft Play Table. I mention this every year but it’s the best table for kids. We’ve had the toddler play table since Max turned one (it’s covered in stickers!) and we still use it frequently.

Big Wimmelbooks –  Fire Truck Book. This is just one of these books that we love. Max can look at them forever!

JellyCat animal + matching book. We’ve loved these since Max was born. The animals are the softest ever and the books are super cute too!

Construction plate and utensils. Max would freak over this.

Latches board. Emilia especially loves this board with all the latches and chains. But Max still ends up playing with it too!

Buckle book. These books are wonderful for travel, but my kids also end up playing with them every single day.

Name stool. This is something I got my kids this year and I’m so excited! They have a name puzzle and name train, but now they will have stools. They are starting to fight over a seat or stool and these will be perfect.

One Stop Shop. My kids got this last year from Santa and they play with it every.single.day. Every day. It is the most played with toy in our house, still!

Hanna Andersson PJs. Our ultimate favorite PJs, four years in the running! These are so wonderful and we love them.

3-in-1 Scooter. This has been the other hit of this week! Emilia got this for her birthday and it’s perfect for her age – she can pull things in it, ride on it with her feet on the floor or use it like a scooter. It’s really cute!

Sorel Kids Boots. Max has a pair of Sorels that Emilia can’t quite fit into yet. I’m debating getting her a pair on sale, because they aren’t much more than Target boots then, and the quality is insane. So good if you live in a snowy climate.

Piano Dance Mat. As a child of the Big generation, I am dying to get this for my kids!

Sticker puzzles. These are Max’s favorite thing! I always always have them in my bag for when we are out and about.

Toy Shopping Cart. Max has wanted one of these for years and now Emilia is on board. They are getting this for Christmas!

A is for Awesome. One of our must have books! You can find some of our other favorite books right here.

2019 beauty gift guide

I love sharing my beauty gift guide every year! This is one of my favorite times of year because the gift sets are amazing – and you can get things to share with friends! If you want more options, you can always check out my monthly beauty posts.

2019 Beauty Gift Guide

Simple Human Sensor Makeup Mirror. I bought this at the anniversary sale a few years ago and I love it. In fact, we both love it! Eddie and I both use this every day, it’s great.

Aquis Hair Towel. This is one of my favorite things. If you have a lot of hair, it helps to dry it so well without breakage. It’s a must. 

Fresh Sugar Icon Balm. I can never pass up a good red, and this is my favorite balm ever! The Bloom is my everyday face!

Jo Malone Mini Cologne Set. I buy this for someone (or split it for multiples!) every year. I love everything Jo Malone and these are great for travel and trying new scents.

Makeup Eraser. I use this every.single.day to wash my face! I’m obsessed. 

Ouai Scalp and Body Scrub. First, this smells like absolutely heaven. Second, it works! I use it before shampoo.

Biossance Squalane Rose Lip Balm. This is a fairly newer item for me, but I’m really loving it. And  it doesn’t have a ridiculous pricetag like some potted lip balms have. 

Hourlgass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette. I think these are the best palettes every year. They have highlighter, bronzer and blush. Gorgeous!

Sunday Riley Retinol + Repeat Kit. Good Genes is the one skincare item I would NEVER live without. Combined with Luna Oil, it’s incredible. And I just bought the A+ serum and am so happy with it! 

Drybar Heated Straightening Brush. I absolutely love this, espiecally if I’m rushed and can’t really blow dry my hair AND straighten is. This is such a great tool! 

Slip Silk Hair Ties. Occasionally I sleep with my hair up, and these are the only things I use. Now they don’t hold my hair tight enough to run around or work out, but they are great when you just want it out of your face! 

KNC beauty Lip Masks. I think this is the best stocking stuffer. 

Charlotte Tilbury Exaggereyes. One of my favorite eyeshadow palettes ever, I love how compact this is. It’s so beautiful. 

Sigma Brush Kit. I’ve had tons of brushes and while I mostly prefer to use my hands, out of all brushes, Sigma still ranks best for me. 

L’occitane Hand Cream Trio. I love grabbing one of these and splitting it up for gifts!

Shiseido Benefiance Retinol Eye Mask. These 100% work. It definitely fades but these give a temporary fix if you want to look super put together.

Origins Ginger Float Bath Bubbles. This is a nostalgic scent for me, but I love it around the holidays. It’s so warming and spice-scented. And great in the bath. 

Rebecca Minkoff Cosmetics Case. Dying over this hot pink color! 

Fresh Once Upon a Mask Set. I love every single mask in this kit. It’s another great one to buy at this price and/or separate as gifts.

Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Set. This is my go-to spring and summer perfume. It is incredible. I love this gift set with the shimmer oil! You can save one for a friend. 

Mini Beauty Fridge. Okay, I don’t have one of these yet but it’s on my list. I LOVE this concept. Stick it in your bathroom or near your bed and keep undereye gels in there. It is SO CUTE.

2019 gift guide for him by howsweeteats

Everything I’m loving this year for my 2019 men’s gift guide – and everything Eddie is loving too! This is a mix of what I’ve bought him in the past and what he is getting this year. So much to love! Of course these gifts can be for anyone, but I know all the guys in my life would loooove this stuff! There are also some great ideas in my gift guide under $25.

2019 Men’s Gift Guide

Ember Temperature Control Coffee Mug. This is the BEST mug ever, especially for the cooler months when coffee gets cold in 34 seconds. They also have a travel version! 

Cole Haan Zero Grand Sneaker. I’ve bought Eddie a few different pairs of these and he loves them. Says they are like walking on clouds!

Ray Ban Originals. A few years ago I surprised Eddie with a new pair of ray bans and he was so excited. I feel like they are such a classic that you just can’t go wrong.

Indoor S’mores Firepit. YEP. This is a real thing. Is it bad that I want it for myself?

Tabletop Cornhole. I think I’m the only one in the world who isn’t into cornhole, but every man in my life loves it. 

Peter Millar Pullovers. Another fave from Eddie! He loves these quarter-zips. 

Shiatsu Back and Neck Massager.  Apparently the best best best massager out there. 

Patagonia Windproof and Waterproof Vest. We live in vests in the winter and who doesn’t love a neon one?

Reusable Flatware Set. Eddie takes our home silverware to work every day for lunch, so I’m convinced that he needs these. Plus, they are unique enough that they may not get mixed up with anyone else’s. And I love how they connect!

Stance Sock Subscription. These are both of our favorite socks. Everyone always gets Eddie a few pairs each year, but I had no idea they had a subscription. I love this idea. 

La Colombe Coffee Subscription. Obsessed with this – it might be my favorite gift on the list. It doesn’t get better than La Colombe.

Tumi Smart ID Wallet. Love how this protects your cards and can hold so much. 

Airpods Pro. I love my airpods so much more than I thought I would – like I can’t live without them. And I’m dying to get Eddie these ones!

Hard Boiled Egg Peeler.

Airpod Strap. Necessary for the above airpods. As much as I love ‘em, I always misplace them!

Peloton App Subscription. Okay I’m not going to tell you to go buy the $$$ bike, but we ADORE the bike. We bought it for each last year for Christmas. However! I can’t rave enough about the app. There are so many great workouts on it – thousands. Eddie loves using it to run! 

Aesop In Flight Therapy. Love the packaging and it’s something Eddie will actually carry on a plan. 

Jack Black Turbo Body Bar. I buy one or two of these for Eddie every single year. It’s an exfoliating soap bar and smells incredible. 

Salt and Straw Ice Cream Pint Club. Absolutely irresistible. I love this subscription based gift too. A surprise every month! 

Boost Up Iphone and Apple Watch Charger. As an apple watch enthusiast, this charging station is everything!

Yeti Portable Wheeled Cooler. This is one of our most used items in the summer. We have the soft cooler but both would love a hard one too. 

Puffer Scarf. Obsessed with this puffer scarf!

Lululemon Joggers. These are Eddie’s favorite athleisure (haha) – like his NICE sweatpants, you know?

Go Pro Hero 8. Eddie is not into cameras, aside from his phone, the drone and the Go Pro! We take this on vacation, have strapped it on the stroller and have made really cute videos with it!

The anticipated women’s gift guide is here! It’s a little splurgy and I’m obsessed with all of it.

This gift guide is filled with TONS of my favorite things. The bags, shoes, pajamas and year-after-year items I use. You’ve seen and heard of a lot of them throughout 2019 as I’ve shared them in my favorites, but these are the best of the best of what I am loving!

2019 Women’s Gift Guide – all my favorite things!

J.Crew Polar Fleece. This is the best fleece I own. I bought it on sale last year and live in it. It’s kind of chunky, but so comfortable.

Maya Brenner Necklace. Only necklace I wear! You can’t go wrong with it. 

Animal Print Monogram Luggage Tag. Absolute cutest, especially with a black suitcase! 

Porter Blush Ceramic Bowl. I have been dying for one of these bowls all year, even though I work from home and don’t take lunch with me. 

Kurt Geiger Rainbow Bag. I’ve had my eye on this rainbow bag for MONTHS. Lacy just gave it to me for my birthday and I basically want to frame it. It’s so gorgeous!

Slip Silk Pillowcase. Everyone loves these. They are great for your hair, anti-aging, if you have lash extensions, everything. Plus, they are so pretty.

Overose Holographic Candles. I can never say no to holographic anything.

AllSaints Crossbody Bag. This is one of my new favorite crossbody bags because it’s so sleek, yet large. I can use it on a quick outing with the kids and still fit enough inside. 

Mac-Kenzie Childs Canape Knives. For as long as I can remember, my mom has gifted these appetizer/spreader knives to her friends and family (much like her potholder gifting!). I love that you can split this one into four gifts too.

Rifle Paper 2020 Calendar. My favorite calendar every single year! Already got my 2020 one. 

Bauble Bar Alidia Ring. Love these rings to wear alone or stack. I have two and everyone always asks where they are from!

Sorel Waterproof Wedge Boots. Another repeat, three years in the making. If you live in a cold, icy, snowy climate, these are wonderful. Great to wear with kids too.

Blank NYC Moto Jacket. I love this jacket and have loved the brand for years. The jackets are made so well. This is so much lighter than a REAL leather jacket and the fit is so cute.

Barefoot Dreams In the Wild Throw. My most favorite blanket ever! I mention this every year, but it’s worth it. We use these every single day.

Clare V. Animal Print Clutch. I’ve had my Clare V clutch that looks identical to this for almost five years now. It’s one of my most used bags when I go out without the kids, and it’s so cute!

Love is in the Air Umbrella. My grandma was so fantastic at practical gifts. This makes me think of her. 

MZ Wallace Metro Tote. You may remember I first had a black MZ tote as my diaper bag with Max. I’ve since got the backpack and love it, as well as have a few makeup bags. It’s the best! I can’t get over the white and gold. Beautiful. 

Nevertheless, She Persisted Puzzle. Absolutely love this and want to gift it to my friends. And maybe myself. 

Kurt Geiger Card Case. This matches the rainbow bag above – I think I’ve finally found my new card case wallet! The awesome part? The other side is the pink/orange rainbow colors!

Michele Deco Sport Watch. I’m very partial to my Apple watch, but Eddie hates it. I admit is looks so clunky and stuff when I’m dressed up, but I love it. He always wants to get me one of these Michele watches and I am dying over this one!

Bauble Bar Vina Drop Earrings. These are SO pretty (there are combos everyone would loveO

Loeffler Randall Slides. You may have seen these shoes all over Instagram and there’s a reason why. They are so flattering and shockingly comfortable. You can usually find a pair on sale too!

Gold Chevron Earrings. These earrings and my everyday wear – nothing dangly (hello kids) and delicate and gorgeous! Live in these.

Nordstrom Lingerie Pajamas. By far the BEST pajamas out there, especially for the price. So soft and silky and stretchy. I love them.

One of my favorites of the year – my 2019 kitchen gift guide is here! It’s chock full of everything I’ve loved this year and a bunch of things I’ll be gifting to family and friends!

My 2019 Kitchen Gift Guide Favorites

KitchenAid White Hobnail Mixer. My favorite of all the stand mixers, I adore that this now comes in white. It is so beautiful! 

Wooden Heart Spatula. I just think this is the cutest.

Weekly Meal Planner Pad. I absolutely love these pages and that there is a grocery list attached.

A fish spatula. I basically use this spatula for everything! 

Smeg Juicer. I’ve raved about this for almost two years now and it might just be my favorite kitchen appliance, which sounds crazy, but it’s so fantastic for citrus season. Best orange juice ever. 

An adorable kitchen canister is the best gift. I find places to use them all over the house – even in a cabinet or pantry. But this one is so cute it has to stay out!

Floral carved lazy susan. I bought this a few weeks ago and I am in loooove. It’s gorgeous in the center of your table, but then it’s useful too! Set some cheese, nuts, jam, crackers and olives in bowls and you can spin it around. It’s show stopping in person.

½ gallon Stasher Bags. I know I mentioned these in my stocking stuffer gift guide, but if you cook a lot, these are incredible for breading, marinating, seasoning and leftovers. It’s a great size. 

Parchment Check Colander. I might use a strainer in my kitchen more than anything else, even a knife. Between washing a billion berries a day (my kids’ fave food!), draining and rinsing beans and draining pasta, it’s always out. I love that this one is cute enough to display.

My favorite dish towels. You know when you’re partial to that perfect towel in your kitchen? These are mine. 

My quick go-to citrus juicer. If I need juice quickly for a dressing or sauce, this is the one I use. It’s the best. 

Finex Cast Iron Skillet. You’ve probably heard me talk about how my mom uses a 100+ year old cast iron skillet. This is the only one I’ve purchased that measures up to hers. 

Tealight Brie Baker. Not sure how I haven’t had this in my life until now. Don’t want to turn on the oven? You can still have brie! 

Bodom Double Walled Pavina Glasses. These are the only cups I drink coffee out of in my house. They make such a great gift. 

Shield Cheese Board Markers. These are the cutest markers I’ve ever seen! Love them so much. 

Kale Razor. I included this last year in my gift guide and I had to bring it back by popular demand. If you eat a lot of kale salads, this is for you.

Convertible Cheese Board. This is amazing. So compact, but unfolds to make a big cheese board space. 

Indoor Herb Keeper. The only way I survive the cool weather months and my love of fresh herbs!

Food52xGreenPan Nonstick Oval Roasting Pan. I haven’t stopped raving about these since buying it a few months ago. It is INCREDIBLE – the best pan I’ve ever bought. The other ones in the collection are also fantastic.

MacKenzie Childs Royal Check Stock Pot. This is one of my favorite pieces to keep in my kitchen. It’s stunning and is great decor for the cooler months when you make a lot of soup.

Beehive Salt Cellar. Could this beeee any cuter? Sorry, I had to. 

Personalized Recipe Board. I absolutely LOVE this. Now that I’m getting older, personalized gifts go such a long way. This is one of the most meaningful things I can think of for someone’s kitchen. 

A Chocolate Shaver! YES. This exists. Perfect for cakes, cupcakes, hot chocolate and pretty much… everything.

Weber Genesis E315 Grill. I have worked with this grill all year (this is not sponsored!) and it is the grill that has made my fall in love with grilling. The quality is incredible for the price. 

Pro Vegetable Chopper. While I chop veggies all the time, I discovered this earlier this year while shooting recipes for my next book. We had to chop SO MUCH STUFF, and this was incredible. It doesn’t replace knives in my everyday cooking, but I can see someone who doesn’t love to cook/chop absolutely loving it.

It’s my favorite time! Gift guide week is here! And we’re kicking it off with this 2019 stocking stuffer gift guide – it’s incredible.

I have been sharing gift guides here on how sweet eats before gift guides were ever a thing. I LOVE putting them together for, well, frankly both you and myself! It makes shopping during the season so much better. Because this is my favorite time of year.

Most of the things you’ll find in my gifts guides won’t be a huge surprise – I’ve talked about lots of them throughout the year in my monthly favorites posts. However, I’ve scoured the internet and all my favorite stores to curate a guide of things I really, truly love, and would enjoy gifting or getting. This is theeee list.

2019 Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide – Gifts Under $25

Peter Thomas Roth Mask Erade. One of everything to try! You can break these apart and end up with a few gifts in one, too.

Things They Don’t Teach You in High School. I love cards like this – they are so fun and great conversation starters.

Avocado Toast Kit. Um, enough said, right? 

iPhone Stand. This has been life changing for me! I use one in my kitchen as well as my bedroom – and I gave one to Eddie for his birthday, which is on his office desk. It’s simple and minimalistic but so helpful. 

Stasher Bags. You know these have been a favorite all year long. We love our stasher bags of all sizes in this house.

Bachca Bobby Pins. Are you like me where bobby pins go to the land of missing socks? I’m always losing them. This would be the perfect stocking stuffer! 

Kiehls Ultimate Hand Salve. This is the best ever hand cream. You can never have enough!

Heart Sunglasses. Lacy gifted us these at her bachelorette party last weekend and they have been such a hit. So cute and so fun! They all came packaged really nicely, they have a case and a microfiber wipe. We love them. 

Citrus Sprayer. This made my gift guide last year and I love this thing. We go through a crazy amount of lemons and limes over here and this is such a cool way to get the juice. It’s so good for salads and seafood.

Baggu Tote. I always appreciate a good (and somewhat stylist) reusable tote.

Charging Pad. I bought one of these for the first time this year and I love it. Not only does it work (even over my thick case), it’s great to have out when you are having guests. No need to search for a charger.

The prettiest little vase. I love all the patterns of these! I would like one of each please. These are SO many different ones. 

Tangle Teaser. Not a day goes by where we don’t use the tangle teaser – on ALL of our hair. I love that it easier fits in your purse too.

Animal Print Notebooks. My fellow paper + pen freaks can relate. This is the MUST have. I’ve already got one started with my 2020 goals and plans for the new year. 

Calacatta Gold S’well Tumbler. We bought these for Lacy’s bachelorette party last week and they are so great. I can’t even get over how gorgeous this one is – almost like a marble and rose gold swirl!

Garlic Zoom Chopper. One of my new favorite tools for chopping garlic!

Floral Kitchen Knives Set. I’ve had these all year and they are the prettiest things ever. Everyone always asks about them – they are actually fun to use when you have guests over!

Champagne Sealer. If you love champagne or prosecco… this is GOLD. 

Heart Pot Holder. I say it every year but my mom is the queen of gifting cute pot holders. They are never something I want to buy, so I love that she gives them to us!

Ladies Who Brunch Towel. On the same note as above, my mom also gifts adorable tea towels a lot. This would be so cute for a girlfriend!

Leopard Print Provisions Kit. Years ago I thought these were gimmicky until I was gifted one – and now I’m sold. I am so excited that they come in a fun leopard print now. These have all the emergency things you need, in a small adorable case.

Hummingbird Glass Straws. Absolutely love these and use them daily. 

Avocado Hugger. Uneaten halves of avocados are the bane of my existence, so these are a must.

Frozen Whiskey Glasses. That are perfect for the whiskey drinker in your life!

The most adorable airpods hanging case. I’m always petrified of misplacing my air pods. This is SUPER cute and so practical.

Pastel Highlighters. These are my absolute favorite high lighters to use in my planner. 

Barefoot Dreams Socks. So excited that they make a sock version of my favorite cozy cardigan. 

But First, Coffee Gummies. Vanilla latte gummy bears? Yes please.

Lily and Val Cooking with Love Calendar. I first discovered this last year and fell in love. The prints are so beautiful and I gave so many as gifts last year!

Terrarium Candles. I think these are SO cute and just different enough from the classic holiday candle.
