With Thanksgiving and Black Friday behind us, I think we’re ALL diving head-first into “holiday mode”.
A.K.A. the inevitable scramble to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones.
And while retailers and brands are PUMPING out ads and products faster than we can keep up, giving the right gift isn’t just a matter of price or aesthetic.
It’s a vast combination of research, vetting, and usefulness. Something I take VERY seriously.
I believe giving the right gift is a slow process — one that shouldn’t be rushed.
But who has the time to VET every single holiday gift they buy?
I don’t. But this year I MADE time just for you. I set aside the last week to not only vet the Christmas gifts I’m gifting this year, but the vet them for you as well!
EVERY product in this gift guide is something I’m proud of (and a lot of the products I already own and love). Each product is something I would be happy to gift my closest relations and would earnestly spend my hard-earned money on. Every single product is something special, practical, useful, thoughtful, or truly beautiful. And every single product is on this list will hopefully make your loved one’s home feel SPECIAL…
The 2018 Gift Guide || For The Home
These timeless crystal coupes are my husband and I’s favorite. We first saw them at The Allis here in Chicago and bought our own pair last year. They make every cocktail feel so luxurious. And, since they’re a heavy weight, we haven’t broken them despite our usual klutziness.
We love ours so much we bought a second pair on Black Friday this year!
A breath-taking chinoiserie jar just itching to be displayed and a vintage bookshelf version of the classic game Clue.
Glass straws for replacing one-time-use plastic straws (we’ve had ours for 5 years already!) and a room spray from one of my favorite brands that’ll leave your home smelling like your favorite library.
Sed Bona, a snippet of the Latin phrase “Pauca Sed Bona“, means “quality over quantity”. It means that having more isn’t always best. It means empowering yourself to do fewer but better, more beautiful, and more fruitful things
