Who doesn’t love giving and receiving gifts? I especially love White Elephant exchanges
because I can focus my energy on one person and find THE perfect gift for them. A few years back, I drew my sister-in-law whose last name is Cherry and I found this gorgeous
coffee table book with a pink linen cover and cherry on the front. I’m proud to say she
still displays it in her foyer lounge. Read on to see my top picks for this holiday season.

1. A Barefoot Contessa Cookbook

Perfect For: The Foodie

I grew up watching the Barefoot Contessa with my late grandma and I still have many of her cookbooks today. My grandma left us ‘love notes’ next to recipes she really, really loved or wrote small tweaks to make a recipe even more successful. This is a gift that keeps on giving; pick a recipe, invite your friends or family over & show them how much you love them.

Find it here.

2. Holiday Diffuser Trio

Perfect For: The New Homeowner

I discovered Antica Farmacista years ago and it’s quickly become my go-to source for luxury candles and diffusers. There’s no better way to celebrate a new homeowner than with a signature home scent. My favorites are Prosecco & Cucumber and Lotus Flower.

Grab it here.

3. Sol Touch Massage Gift Certificate

Perfect For: The Busy Parent

I almost didn’t put this one on the list because Sol Touch is THAT good and my ego tells me to keep this a hidden gem, however I can’t leave you out of the loop. You must book yourself an appointment or give someone special a gift certificate. What they lack in typical spa amenities, they 100% make up for in massage skill and knowledge.

Purchase it here.

4. Birddog Shorts

Perfect For: The Guy In Your Life

My husband and all his friends rave about these shorts. They literally say Birddogs are the best pair of shorts they’ve ever tried. No, this is not sponsored, however I bet the guy in your life will thank you if you give them a pair. The names of the shorts are also pretty comical (i.e. Forrest Pumps). Check them out.

5. The Daily Stoic Journal

Perfect For: The Reader

This gift is perfect for the philosopher in your life or someone who could use a bit of self-discovery. I love listening to the Daily Stoic podcast and I’m confident this journal would make a wonderful gift.

Buy it here.

I hope this holiday season brings you and your family peace and joy. Remember to cherish the present moment as it is a gift in itself.

If a design consultation for your friend’s home may be the perfect gift, reach out to us and we’ll get that all set up for you!

Happy holidays from my family to yours,
