Is your giftee a dog owner who needs a place to stash their phone, keys, and bags when they take the pup outside? Are they an athleisure fan who wants a bag to match? Or maybe someone who doesn’t want the fuss of a purse or tote whenever they run errands? This belt bag (which comes in sixteen colors!) is the gift for them.

Give the gift of a morning cup of joe matcha this holiday season, with this delicious pure matcha from Golde.

Hot tip: If they don’t have a whisk for their matcha yet, get them the superwhisk + pure matcha set (which is currently on sale!).

There’s something about the methodical act of putting together a puzzle that’s so relaxing. I love this one, with a take on New York City’s most famous landmarks.

You could give the gift of a delightful body-care product, or you could give the gift of THREE all at once. Herbivore Botanicals makes such great products and this bath set looks positively delightful.

Every home cook should get to experience the ease of having a cookbook stand. This one by Yamazaki Home (maker of my beloved dish rack) was designed to hold either a cookbook or an iPad, depending on the cook’s preference.

Every candle makes a great gift, but there’s something particularly magical about the way a taper candle burns, wax slowly dripping down the sides over time. But before I get too poetic about the topic, allow me to present this flora taper candle holder, an ideal gift for any candle lover in your life.

Meet a cookbook that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Described as “A gifty, funny, and practical guide to transforming the most lackluster of ingredients into a delicious meal, making bad food good and making good food even better,” this would make a lovely gift for any home cook in your life.

I’ve sung the praises of this timer before and I continue to use it regularly to this day. All you need to do is turn the cube to the time you’d like to set and the timer automatically begins. It’s a dream for anyone who needs a little extra structure in order to get their tasks completed throughout the day (raises hand).

It’s ideal for journaling, list-making, or jotting down ideas as they arise. Purchase it directly from our manufacturing partner, Design Loop, or via Target.
