Holiday Gift Guide

“and a partridge in a pear tree”

Let’s celebrate the holiday season by gifting with style. I’ve always loved this time of year so much. It’s a time for gratitude and gathering with those we love most, and giving a thoughtful gift is the perfect way to express your love for someone.

Our Holiday Gift Guide includes ideas for everyone on your Christmas list and a few items you may want to splurge on for yourself, too. You’ll want to start early, as many of the items listed here are only available on a limited basis.

For the Stylish Hostess

During the holiday season, it’s always nice to bring a token of your appreciation when you are invited to a holiday celebration. It’s always nice to bring a bottle of champagne or dessert, but it’s even more memorable when you leave behind a gift that lasts a bit longer. Here’s the list of our favorite gifts for those who love to entertain in style.

For the Men in your life

Every man dreads the holidays, because traditional gifts that are meant to be personal are rarely that. It may be tempting to gift a tie or magazine subscription, but it is so much better and classier to gift something they will truly use. This is a list of favorites we’ve gone back to, time and time again, that have never failed.

For children & the Young at Heart

As children grow up, they’ll start to ask for gift cards, electronics, and just plain cash. We keep the holiday spirit alive in our home by encouraging our little ones to ask for unique gifts that embrace the season and inspire them to be creative. These are a few gifts that caught my attention this year.

Stocking Stuffers

It’s a tradition in our family to open our stocking stuffers before opening the gifts under the tree. Sometimes it’s the little things tucked away in the stockings that truly delight us.

Gifting with purpose

Giving a gift that gives back is so meaningful during this time of year. In my business, I always gift One Hope to celebrate love and gratitude. It’s so beautiful to give a gift that supports someone else’s dreams. Here is a short list of some of my favorites.

Pretty Wrapping Supplies

Last, but not least, let’s not forget about the pretty packaging options for your gifts. I love wrapping gifts individually, but when that’s not possible I’ll use a beautiful gift bag stuffed with tissue paper to keep things simple. When it comes to wrapping gifts for the holidays, I choose to fully embrace the holiday theme or use a solid paper for a more elegant look. Whatever the decision, though, I always add a satin or velvet ribbon to each gift along with a hand-written name tag. Some of my favorite holiday-themed wrapping options are listed below.

  • Red Santa with Love by Sugar Paper x Target $6 via Target
  • White Gold Christmas Trees by Sugar Paper x Target $6 via Target
  • White Merry Christmas Gift Bag $3 by Sugar Paper x Target $8 via Target

I hope it’s not too late for you to find the perfect gift for the special people in your life, and that these ideas have inspired you to spread love and cheer this holiday season.

Wishing you a beautiful holiday season, filled with joy and everything your heart desires. Get in touch if you need a little help celebrating in style. We have limited availability for Chic Soirees this holiday season.
