5. Anthropologie Capri Blue Candle

IYKYK. This candle is a cult-fave for sure. Gifting either of the two larger sizes would be totally wowing — especially as a hostess gift. But the little ones are just as appreciated!

6. Anthropologie Maeve Puffy Platform Slippers

The colors & metallic sheens of these slippers are sooo good. I can’t decide between that pretty moss color or this lilac blue. Love that thick platform for running for the mail in the snow (sometimes I’m too lazy to change into boots ok).

8. Vanna Claire Sandstone & Jade Watch

I’ve had my eyes on these Vanna watches for years. SUCH cool designs & shapes, I’m so in love. Their Claire watch is my overall top pick because it’s a cross between a slim bracelet and a watch.

If you have a friend who needs some me-time, get them a fancy bath caddy. Guys, it really levels up a bath. It’s great for holding a book, glass, scrub, candle or anything they’d need for a relaxing bath experience. Comes in silver, brass, and black/gold. Looks hella fancy, too.

13. Jolie Filtered Showerhead

Haha. You may be thinking this is extremely random and not really giftable…. but I can assure you, this fancy filtered showerhead would make anyone happy. It’s been trending for a bit and comes in this pretty chrome, a brushed steel and black. Oh and Anthro has it in gold! Apparently it works wonders for hair, too. It’s on the top of my list.

14. Tom Ford Eye Color Quad

Shana has me reeeally wanting to splurge on a Tom Ford eye palette (she swears by hers and her eye makeup always looks seriously good). This palette is the perfect combo of everyday useful shades + a couple pretty metallics to add on some holiday bling. An unreal stocking stuffer if you ask me.

We’re been eyeing allll the Mou boots for this winter (proof here). This pair has the prettiest metallic sheen + color combo that I just adore.

17. Georg Jensen Bernadotte French Press

This French press is simply stunning. I love gifting people revved-up versions of appliances that they use often, just to make it a bit more special or to give them another option for when they wanna feel fancy. I know about a bajillion coffee lovers who would swoon over this like I am.

23. Reformation Lanes Velvet Dress

Ok, truly anything from Ref’s website would be a great (certified climate neutral) gift. I love how they do velvet, so this dress is at the top of my list. Get a gift card if you’re unsure of your gift recipient’s style/color preferences (or just go for it and get a gift receipt. it’s way more fun).

24. MZ Wallace Ice Sequin Micro Metro Tote

I’ve been perusing MZ Wallace’s website sooo many times since I saw their holiday collection come out. It’s GORG. This tote is so freaking pretty & I love it paired with a literal ballgown. So cool.

26. Vintage French Silver-Plated Ice Tongs

These tongs would make the coolest gift for any hostess or homeware lover. I love the product description so much – “Collected by the Elsie Green team as they traversed the beautiful French countryside, no two pairs of these tongs are alike—and we love the surprise of seeing which design arrives. The vintage silver will look beautiful on your cocktail tray or at your tea table, a useful little grabber for all sorts of things.”.
