My holiday gift guide 2023 picks

It’s the holiday gifting season! Today I’m sharing all of this year’s gift guides at once, including gifts $50 and under, home decor gifts, and gifts for guys, kids, girlfriends, and parents and in-laws. With any gift idea you choose, make sure you consider why that gift feels meaningful for the person you’re giving it to. I find that this kind of intentional, thoughtful approach to gifting is always the best way to go.

Shop all of my holiday gift guide 2023 picks below. Happy gifting!

Gifts $50 and Under

1. A cute phone case, $50 on sale for $38. You can never go wrong with a stylish phone accessory.

2. Levain Bakery cookies, $29+. These will get you extra brownie points. 

3. Spanish hand cream, $6. This hand cream is luscious and more special than something you would pick up at your local drugstore. 

4. A personal card, $20. Sometimes writing a meaningful message in a beautiful card makes for the best gift. 

5. A favorite memento in a beautiful frame, $40 on sale for $28. Frame an item you’ve saved over the years that means something to both of you (e.g., the dinner menu from your first date).

6. Great butter, $14. Really good butter reminds me of my recent trip to France. It’s simple and luxurious at the same time. 

7. A pretty puzzle, $32. Get one that looks frame-worthy when finished. 

8. A great bottle of bubbles or nonalcoholic apéritif is something they can enjoy over the holidays. 

9. A great paring knife, $40. This would make a good-looking and petite addition to their collection.

6. A cute wristlet for their phone, $55. Pick a style that reminds you of their personality, like this sweet fruit wristlet. 

7. A cookbook like Start Here or Snacking Bakes, $36 and $23. Pick one you’d like to cook with together or highlight recipes you think they’d like.
