Holiday Gift Guide: Installment #1

For the person you're friendly with but don't know super well yet, but still want to gift with something thoughtful (and without spending a ton of money).

Your new boyfriend's parents, your co-worker for Secret Santa, etc. We've all been there and it can sometimes be the toughest gift to shop for. 

I've crafted this affordable gift guide of less taste-specific, more palatable items that may feel more thoughtful than your go-to gift certificate. 


Love the modern feel of this monogrammed raw wood cutting board


These flavor-infused olive oils from a local shop are incredible and would be so cute gifted along with a fresh baguette

Three / Four

Beaded honeycomb coasters make a great statement and are complimented well by the lines of these unique glasses

Five / Six

Humans of New York would make a great coffee table book, so it'd be cute to pair it with these hand-painted stoneware mugs


This cozy throw would make a nice gift for an affordable price


Give this chic cheese plate along with some of your favorite artisan cheeses and a bottle of wine!

Nine / Ten

This loveliest smelling/looking candle is made even cuter with the addition of pretty match boxes


Chocolate pizza delivery is no-fail (PS spring for the peanut butter wings too!)


Who wouldn't want to receive a gorgeous vase?! Add fresh flowers for a sweet touch

(and for my go-to gift cards: a favorite restaurant, a spa treatment, or movie tickets)
