2021 Holiday Gift Guide: A Few Of My Favorite Things

Last year, I shared a gift guide with my holiday wish list, so I thought it would only be fitting to share a gift guide with a few of my favorite things this year. All of the below products or brands are ones I discovered this year and use and love religiously. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Anytime I post Judy on my Instagram stories, I get tons of link requests! I love that she gives both vintage and modern vibes and she’s the perfect addition to my minimalist home décor. Also, check out my post on how to make a display pedestal for her for under $100!

Jo Malone Basil & Neroli is hands down my favorite perfume of all time. I love the clean, natural scent that’s understated and not overdone or heavy. It’s not one of the typical influencer-suggested perfumes, but if you’re looking for something a little more muted and neutral that gives sophisticated, off-duty vibes, this is for you.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen me post my favorite New York or Nowhere pieces all the time. In case you need any additional reasons to love the brand, I heard Carrie Bradshaw carries one of their bags in the new SATC reboot!

I’m obsessed with my Lunya washable silk sleep sets. At this point I have 3 sets and am working my way up to having one for every night of the week. I have one of their silk eye masks as well and it’s so soft and blocks out all light. Trust me, you could sleep in broad daylight with this thing on and not even know it! I also love my Slip 100% silk pillowcase which I swear has drastically reduced my hair’s breakage.

I recently bought an Area diffuser during their Black Friday sale after lusting after them for months. I’m a candle addict, but also a clean product-addict, so all the dangerous ingredients in my candles definitely give me pause. I love that Aera’s scents are made without harmful VOCs and other chemicals, and are safe for inhalation for everyone from pets and children to adults.

When I tell you I’m obsessed with every product SAINT JANE makes. I use literally every product in this clean beauty line, but their Luxury Body Serum (currently sold out) and Luxury Beauty Serum are my favorites. Their Hydrating Petal Cream is also low key the best makeup primer I’ve ever used.

My hair dryer I’ve used for 7+ plus years FINALLY died this year, and I was so excited to finally have a reason to splurge on the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer. I’m far from the first person to recommend this hair dryer, but I’m here to tell you it’s worth the hype. I’m so careful with my hair because it’s thin and prone to breakage, and I love how the Dyson dries my hair so quickly even on the lowest heat setting.

Finally, one of my absolute favorite, holy-grail products I discovered this year is the Nature of Things Restorative Floral Bath. It’s definitely a splurge, but a worthy-splurge. The smell is literally the best thing to ever float into my nostrils, and the CBD relaxes the muscles and decreases inflammation. This is the perfect holiday gift that’s both unexpected and sure to impress.
