1. Fabric Fresh:  A luxury item that’s affordable, I have this Laundress fabric freshener on my own list this year. I have been wanting to try this, specifically for our sheets, in between washes — the classic scent has raves across their entire line! Sweet all on its own, or, if you’re shopping for a bigger gift, you can pair this with a brand new set of nice sheets. The ones we have that I’ve raved about for years are THESE.

2. Split Decision Pie Plate:  Such a clever idea, the only prerequisite for this pie plate is that the two choices of pie halves bake at the same temp. You can even remove the center divider for full, single pies 😉

3. Automatic Pan Stirrer w/ Timer: I typically either forget to “stir occasionally” or end up anchoring myself to the stove; how brilliant is this little gadget?! There’s a video in the product images HERE — perfect for those who love to cook or seemingly have all the kitchen gadgets!

4. Cookie House Mug Buddies:  These are unique and adorable! Bonus points if you throw in a cute mug to pair with them — these Anthro monogram mugs are my fav and are on sale right now HERE.

5. To-Do Lists:  I love paper, desk, and office pretties as gifts. And, as someone who lives by written to-do lists, I would love to receive one of these! These adorable pads are awesome on their own, with a set of pens, as a stocking stuffer, or even to keep on hand for “just in case” gifts! I can’t decide which is my favorite, but I love the one with the rooster and the one that says “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together. — Vincent Van Gogh”

6. Soaking Salts:  Choose between “Chill”, “Float”, or “Soothe”, including eucalyptus and peppermint, rose and ylang ylang, and lavender and rosemary, respectively. Up the ante by pairing with a soothing candle or set of fresh towels — THESE are my fav!

7. Portable Charger:  This thing is a lifesaver and I love it so much, I got one for Dave, too. Not only does it charge while you’re on the go, but it charges way faster than a traditional charger. If I need immediate juice — even at home — this is what I use. You can see 40k reviews on this model HERE.

8. USB Candle Lighter:  This USB lighter comes in several colors and again, you can pair it with a candle if you’re looking for a pairing idea. Also a great stocking stuffer idea!

9. Gold Edge Letter Board:  From kitchen menus to seasonal sayings and monthly quotes, from announcements to photo ops and messages, this pretty gold frame letter board is such a fun, affordable gift!

10. Perfume Sampler:  Perfume and cologne is a classic standar but unless you know someone’s “signature scent”, it’s also personal and a huge guessing game. I love the idea of a sampler pack so 1. they can try new scents to discover new favorites before committing to a large size, and 2. possibly discover more than one regular scent. This mini travel set is $25 and contains the following:

  • Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum Travel Spray
  • Yves Saint Laurent Libre Eau de Parfum
  • Maison Margiela REPLCIA by the Fireplace Eau Eau de Toilette Travel Spray
  • Chloé Signature Rose Tangerine Eau de Toilette Travel
  • OUAI Melrose Place Eau de Parfum Travel Spray
  • Miu Miu Eau de Parfum Rollerball

11. Candle Accessory Set:  I’ve shared this set — which contains a snuffer, wick trimmer, and wick pick — multiple times, but after using my own set and displaying it in my coffee table tray as decor, I actually snagged a few more as gifts, to pair with candles.

12. Ceramic Berry Baskets:  Chances are low your gift recipient has one of these adorable, ceramic berry baskets. Choose from three colors and even nestle some candies or truffles inside to personalize it!

13. Honey Pot:  At only $7.95, this honey pot and dipper set is an adorable, complete gift, all on its own! This would make for a sweet teacher gift, too, especially paired with their favorite tea!

14. Large Memo Notepad:  These large notepads are so fun and come in several colors — just like my planner, clipfolio and other desk essentials, I am such a fan of this cute, vibrant brand! Here are a few prints and designs it comes in…

15. Wellness Kit:  It’s a crazy time when you’re giving masks as gifts, right? This cute set (again, so weird to say that?!) is great for anyone — especially someone who loves a presentation. Also a stocking stuffer idea and comes in a couple colors!

16. Tile Bluetooth Tracker:  This Tile bluetooth tracker can attach directly to your keys (or anything else you need to keep track of) and if you misplace them, the sound can lead you directly to them. If they’re out of range, you can track them via your phone! This is on both my personal wish list and “to-give” list. You can also find the pro version with longer distance capabilities HERE. Both come in single or pack options (up to 4), and you can also opt for a bundle that comes with a card to keep in your wallet (or purse) for tracking!

17. Catchall Zipper Pouch:  I’m a sucker for a fun pouch/compartment/organizer/catchall and this sweet zipper pouch fits all the above! I love the added strap with holes for earrings or jewelry, too. No more loose studs in the purse!

18. Bloody Mary Garnish Picks: The best part of the Bloody Mary is coming up with all the garnishes to serve with them. But, with wimpy little picks, you can’t fit more than an olive, pickled something, and maybe a lemon wedge. These picks are SO FUN — especially for someone who likes to entertain!

19. Rabbit Wine Charm Bottle Stopper: So clever and such an easy gift idea, this wine stopper comes with built-in wine charms! Great stocking stuffer idea, and obviously, easy to pair with a bottle of wine or even my favorite wine bottle opener (HERE). At only $8.80 *currently* and free, fast shipping via Amazon, you can’t go wrong with this budget pick!

Best of luck as you work your way through your list — keep it fun and don’t stress. It’s been such a crazy year for us all but letting the people in our lives know we see them and appreciate them is more important than ever — even if it’s cookies and a note dropped in the mail.
