Can y’all believe it is that time of the year?! It is time for Holiday gift guides! Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing my picks for all things related to the holiday season. Be sure to check back as I will update posts with alternatives when items sell out!

Are you like me and struggle to come up with things to add to your holiday wish list? Here are some of my favorite things to treat myself with this holiday season!

Top Picks

1. Personalized Jewelry from GLDN

I love personalized jewelry so much! I wear a custom necklace with my daughters’ initials every single day, and it definitely is my most treasured piece of jewelry. GLDN has several options for personalized jewelry at multiple price points. My top picks are the Lor Necklace and the Yue + Lor Layered Set. Other jewelry brands I recommend are Made by Mary (for dainty gold jewelry) and Maison Miru (for stylish earring options). If you have accumulated a lot of jewelry, I love the Made by Mary Travel Jewelry Case and Jewelry Box.

2. Lo and Sons Waverly 2

Prior to having kids, I used to love treating myself to a new handbag. Nowadays, my purse is barely even my own anymore, stuffed with snacks for the kids, a change of clothes, water bottles, and, oh, did I mention snacks for the girls? These days, I like to have a small grab-and-go handbag that fits inside my daily bag. This way, I can switch bags with ease, knowing that all my essentials are contained within my grab-and-go. I love that Lo and Sons is a minority-owned brand with a commitment to thoughtful design and sustainable business practices.

3. Birdies Robin Slippers

I feel like I am forever on the hunt for the perfect pair of house slippers. Slippers feel luxurious to me, so I almost always request a new pair each holiday season. This year, I’m requesting these chic slides from Birdies. Other slippers I’ve had my eye on are these uber-fancy Jenni Kayne Shearling Moroccan Slippers and these highly-rated LL Bean Wicked Good Shearling Slippers.

4. Parachute Cotton Cloud Robe

In case you can’t tell, I love requesting cozy, around-the-house items! I love Parachute’s Cotton Cloud bedding, so the Cotton Cloud Robe seems like a solid choice. I also have my eye on this one from Plain Jane since I know how cozy their pajamas are!

I’m super guilty of asking for ‘family gifts’ for myself for Christmas. I’ll share a ‘family gift’ gift guide really soon! Do you have anything on your wish list this holiday season? Be sure to click here to check out all my holiday content!
