Holiday Gift Guide 2019

I hope if you click on this post, we all share the love of gift gifting. I love to browse wishlists and ask for suggestions for literally everything I do in life, so here you’d expect some practical quirky gifts that range from under $25 to specific gifts for Her and Him. Enjoy!

AMAZON FINDS UNDER $25

These are great as stocking stuffers, last-minute gifts to add in like a cherry on top. Make sure you add a cute bow or wrap ’em with cute wrapping paper to spice things up!

Bee’s Wrap Reusable Food Wraps: These organic cotton wraps are hand-crafted in Vermont and are industry-leading beeswax wraps. I’ve seen these sold at zero waste stores both in-person and online everywhere. They are washable, reusable, and compostable, and are the perfect gifts for literally anyone and everyone. Do check out my low waste blog post for more recommendations if you are into eco/sustainable living or just simply want to make a small positive impact on the world.

Lodge Cast Iron Skillet: It has 16k+ reviews on Amazon, how in the world! I’m sure whoever you’re gifting this to will make great use out of this skillet as a beginner. I personally use a Le Creuset set, and the skillet itself is almost $100. eek!

Hario Tea Pot: I would absolutely love this teapot for myself. It’s dishwasher safe, heat-safe, and treated to resist shattering. Perfect for any fresh adults or tea lovers of any ages, really! I personally love making extra and leave it in the fridge to make iced tea water, so refreshing!

Powerlix Milk Frother: This milk frother is on my to-buy asap. I’ve been really into drinking almond and oat coffee lately, weird because I’ve always had straight black coffee for years. This is another Amazon favorite that is on many wishlists I’ve seen so far! Must-have definitely!

Dash Mini Waffle Maker: I saw this cutest waffle maker along with a mini oven at Crate & Barrel, and I cannot stop thinking about them. One of you guys told me you enjoyed making mini waffles and freeze them to eat during the week, how genius! I’ll definitely pick one up pretty soon because I love waffles, plus it’s so cute and functional, too!

Aquis Microfiber Hair Drying Turban: Think of this for anyone with long hair and their struggle to dry their hair every time. I’ve been there, but I am no longer there because I have short hair now! This hair turban is literally featured and suggested on many best find lists like IntoTheGloss and Clever Style (Beauty Break). It comes in many colors and is super easy to simply wrap and secure hair in place.

UNIQUE GIFTS FOR THE HOME

Emile Henry Pizza Stone: I’ve made pizza at home once, so I cannot stress enough the importance of having a good pizza stone as it heats up the pizza so fast and evenly. This one I’ve found on Goop is made from ceramic in France and dishwasher safe, what?!

The Stand: This minimal knife stand is such a genius yet outstanding idea one can ever think of to gift someone. I’m sure it will be ideal for those who love cooking or have cute knives to put on display, but hey, this stand will encourage any maximalists out there to really hone in their favorites and essentials. Yes, I’m talking about the knives, not the fashion here!

Kasa Smart Wifi Plug by TP-Link: I’ve recently got a pack of 3 smart plugs (2 for the lights for my plants and 1 for the lamp in the bedroom). They’re wifi operated with a single tap of your smartphones (download the Smart Kasa app) and voice-enabled (with Alexa and Google Assistant and Microsoft Cortana). After a few easy setup steps, you can control on and off and set schedule for when you want your connected lights or fans, especially when you’re away. Such game-changers!

Infinity Brass 32″x76″ Floor Mirror: I have this gigantic 6 ft tall mirror, and I never see myself getting rid of it ever! I get asked so often and yes, I know this mirror is expensive. But it’s such a statement and high quality. I love it so much!

Stendig Calendar 2020: It’s a signature piece in my apartment, and I think you will love it in yours, too! I see it more like a piece of art that changes from black or white monthly. It just makes me smile every time I look at it. It will also make a great gift for anyone who’s into minimal aesthetics or just buy it for your own home.

Project 62 Delavan Tripod Floor Lamp: I have this tripod lamp in the bedroom, and it’s such a classic timeless piece. And can you believe that it’s from Target?

ARTSY CERAMICS:

MUJI Makeup drawers/storage:

FOR HIM

Gift LULU LEMON: ABC pants, Commission pants, Tshirts, hoodies, shirts.

Gift FJÄLLRÄVEN or Patagonia if he’s into the outdoors. FJÄLLRÄVEN sizing might be a bit confusing, and their stuff is sold out so quickly. Their Black Friday deal is 20% entire store, so it’s a great time to pick up something. Both Patagonia and FJÄLLRÄVEN are life-time guaranteed, so that makes it worth the investment for me! Smart Wool and Darn Tough make increible hiking socks that I swear by, available at REI. So check it out!

Airpods Pro: Uhm, need I say more? They’re such a life changer when it comes to long hour commute and gym. Block out unnecessary noise to focus on what matters.

Some shoes suggestion: Cole Haan Washington Lazer Grand Wing Tip shoes, Allbirds Wool Runner shoes, Comme des Garçons PLAY x Converse Chuck Taylor (white), Birkenstock Boston Soft Footbed, Common Projects Original Achilles Sneaker

FOR HER

Gift MEJURI: 10% every first order at edit.mejuri.com/antrieuBLACK FRIDAY/CYBER MONDAY WEEKEND SALE (November 25th at 9 AM EST – December 2nd at 11:59 PM EST, only once a year) –  10% off one item, 15% off two, 20% off three+

Gift EVERLANE: No need for any introduction of this brand here on my blog. Cheeky straight, bra, Pima cotton turtleneck, T-shirt, trousers, and shoes are outstanding. The boss boots are on my cart atm!

Gift GLOSSIER: 20% off sale weekend starts Friday, November 29, once a year. Shop my top favorite single product and set picks from the brand:

GLOSSIER SKINCARE HOLIDAY EDIT:

Gift OUTDOOR VOICES: 25% code THANKS25 sitewide. My favorites are below and some of them I have had for years:

Gift LULU LEMON: Align pants, Wunder Under, and Free To Be Serene Bra are some of my personal favorites and these last me years! Absolutely worth every penny. Click product photos below to browse for other available colors:

Gift REFORMATION: 30% off site-wide. Browse my favorites and love that Ref does say to shop responsibly.

Gift UNIQLO: To be honest with you, I only care about the Uniqlo U and their designer collabs like JW Anderson or Jil Sander. It does sound like I’m slightly obsessed with going to Uniqlo because I am. Get her (or him or anyone) their socks, heat techs, sweaters, and a puffy jacket.

Gift Aritzia: Get her a wool scarf. I have this one in camel, and it is thick and incredibly warm. Their office wear selection is also great, so I highly suggest to take her in-store for a shopping spree if you live near buy a store.

LITTLE LUXURIES FOR ANYONE AND EVERYONE

Artifact Uprising: All you need are some photos and some time to put the gift in the form of prints, frames, cards, photo books/albums, calendars, wall decor. I’ve used Artifact Uprising once before, and I got a set of 10 photos printed in a square (very nice quality) with a wooden block to hold, here. They have an app in which you can load photos easily from your phone. Highly recommend!

MY WISHLIST

What to Buy for a Fashion Girl 😛

Acne Musubi Mini Bag: Do I need another bag of this style? I think so! 😛 This particular bag either in black or tan has been on my wishlist for quite a while now. There’s just something about the origami chunky looping design of the straps and the fact that it’s a permanent collection of Acne that makes me want it more!

More BRIOGEO hair products because of this life-changing Charcoal + Coconut oil micro-exfoliating shampoo that was exactly perfect for my itchy scalp and oily roots. Some products on my wishlist are: castor oil for hair growth, blow dry & heat protectant crème, charcoal + tea tree scalp treatment, ginseng + biotin volumizing root powder or this scalp treatment therapy kitBlack Friday 20% Code HOLIDAY through 12/2

Some more wishlist items that I will patiently wait for their sales: Amina Muaddi crystal heels, Raey raglan coat, Nanushka Loane Belted coat, Reformation Ingrid Dress, Uniqlo U oversized blocktech men’s coat, Acne Studios Pansy beanie, and Gucci loafers.

I really hope that this list gives you some good insights as to what to pick up this holiday season. I’ll make sure to keep this list on and updated until Cyber Monday or so. Stay safe and happy shopping!
