The Ultimate Gift Guide

Updated: Nov 23, 2019

This is not the year you get your loved ones a gift card and picture frame, okay? It's not the year.

Every year, I am the absolute WORST gift giver of all time. I fully believe it's because I put so much pressure on myself to be a great gift giver, that I overthink it and opt for the safe gift card.

So we are ALL not going to be doing that this year, okay?

I have put together a few fun items for each kind of friend in your life. These gifts will make you look super thoughtful and unique. You're welcome.

Some of my favorite shops to find unique and fun gifts:

1. (the absolute OG of unique gifts)

2. Nordstrom Rack (all the goodies, but half the cost)

3. Amazon (really quick shipping if you're a last minute shopper)

4. Anthropologie (honestly any time of the year is a good time for anthro)


This is a friend we all love and cherish. You get to come over, and invade their space...and...they...LIKE IT. In full gratitude for never having to clean your house, you owe these friends something in return.
