Whether you’re shopping for a friend, a partner, or even yourself, you can’t go wrong with this list packed full of things to make the every day feel more special–because I think that’s what we all want.

Every woman needs a robe to slip into. I love wearing one while fresh out of the shower while I’m doing my hair and makeup, but before I’m ready for clothes. Or in the evenings, when I feel cold–it’s a perfectly acceptable alternative to wearing a blanket–and this one couldn’t be softer. It’s the perfect length too!

Made by Mary cannot do wrong with their jewelry. It stays shiny, never hurts and they get it right every time, including this beautiful band ring.

You have got to be kidding me with these gingham linen pajamas. As I get older, I have great pride in a matching pair of pajamas and these ones make me feel like I’m straight out of a Nancy Meyers movie.

Chunky statement hoops are making a huge comeback (thanks Hailey Bieber!) and these dress up even the most casual outfits without being TOO big.

This is THE half zip that everybody’s getting these days. It comes in a bunch of colors (I Love the burgundy too!) and is the softest material. I wish I could get away with wearing this every single day.

This is THE most coveted cup on the internet. They’re almost always sold out, so I would grab it while it’s still here! The newer 2.0 version is even better with a soft grip handle and no spill straw spout!! She might have one, but she secretly wants another.

Everything about this Apple watch band looks expensive and chic, but it’s a killer price. I’ve been wearing the blonde tortoise one for over a year, and I’m ready for this bone color!

This is top on my Christmas list! There are 7 different lighting options, each with a different purpose. I can’t wait to try out the red light, which increases blood flow and collagen reproduction.

9. Rib Beanie $23

A beanie not only keeps your head warm, but it keeps the bad hair days hidden. Such a good price for this slouchy lavender beanie, which comes in 6 other colors and is nice and stretchy so she doesn’t have to worry about hat hair!

This 100% wool blazer is an absolute work of art. It’s definitely an investment piece, but it would be the gift that keeps on giving with those classy brass buttons. She’ll put it on right out of the box and want to wear it for Christmas dinner!

I am in love with this puffy bag. All 4 colors are so good, and I think I would be tempted to squish it all day. Definitely an every day piece that feels elevated and stylish.

It’s time to put a pretty catch-all dish on your nightstand if you don’t have one already. The price for this dish is such a steal and the perfect spot for her rings!

I have no idea how this travel set comes with all of these incredible products for that price, but it does. This is the perfect gift-set and a great way to sample the products before you get the full-size. And they all smell incredible!

Western boots are having a moment and I went on the hunt for my favorite ones at a killer price. These would look good dressed up or down, and I can’t get over the detailing!

This air-dryer curling wand is the dupe of the coveted Dyson but at a fraction of the price. I’ve seen TikToks of both being tested and this Shark option is just as good.

There’s nothing quite like opening up a new pair of slippers on Christmas morning and having toasty feet all winter long. These are the trendiest slippers right now, perfect for around the house, but I would also sneak away to run a quick errand in them….on purpose.

looking for inspiration? 

I recently got an email from someone that asked, “Where do you go for new design inspiration?” She went on to say, “I use Houzz and lots of popular sites, but I feel like I’m stuck in an algorithm and keep seeing the same things.” I know the feeling — it’s so easy to get […]
