I totally copied Oprah’s title. Sorry Oprah. Oprah comes out with a looong list of your favorite things at the end of every year. She recaps the years best products. It comes out just before the holidays, sort of as a gift guide. I look forward to it. Because you know, if Oprah loves it you have to buy it, right?!




Here is my holiday gift guide of some of my favorite things. A few items I own and a few are also on my wishlist!


Mark and Graham Italian Leather Pouch – Mark and Graham is one of the coolest stores. It’s king of personalizing and monogramming. I go on their website every week just to see what new things they have come out with. They NEVER disappointment. This is my go to when shopping for gifts. Not only are their products amazing quality but they also add that perfect personalization touch. Go on their website and thank me later.

Mug and Warmer Set – The first thing I do when I wake up is make a cup of coffee. I look forward to it the night before. However, the second I get up I’m go, go, go. I don’t necessarily sit down and enjoy it. I go right into my skin care routine, my makeup, checking emails, feeding the dog, etc. So as I’m doing these tasks my coffee gets cold. Not with this! I place it down on the warm plate between tasks and it stays just how I left it. There is nothing worse than cold coffee. Honestly, I won’t drink it.

William Sonoma cast Iron Oven – I put a dutch oven on one of these holiday gift guides on my blog a couple years ago. I mentioned that I have always wanted one and it will be on my wishlist until I get one! Either my sister or mom saw it, because on Christmas morning I got that exact one. I use it at least once or twice a week!! Love, love, love. So, trust me when I say this is the best gift to give.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Mask – Eye masks are involved in my morning routine. I have tried several different brands and Elemis so far has been my favorite. It helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles. I think it also helps with my puffiness in the morning.

Mark and Graham cutting board – Another Mark and Graham product that won’t disappoint. GREAT quality and worth every penny.

Men’s slippers – Our dog chewed up our slippers soooo this is on my list for him… These slippers can go outside too!

Women’s Ugg slippers – I have these in the color chestnut. I’m wearing them as we speak! My favorite part about them… they can be washed very easily! Good as new.

Glass tumblers – These are used for beer, tea, or iced coffee. I use mine for iced coffee when I’m on the run or when I’m having a mid day cup. There’s something about it that makes me feel so fancy.

Solo Stove bonfire – How cool?! It’s portable so you can take it camping or when going over to your neighbors backyard. Make sure you look at what kind of wood it needs so you know where to buy that in your town.

Canon mini photo printer – I have an older version of this and use it constantly. The photo paper can be pricey but the photos turn out awesome and you don’t have to drive to Walgreens.

Rose quartz facial roller – I use this EVERY single morning! Yes I doooo. Roll this on your face in an upwards motion. It supports the lymphatic drainage and helps with puffiness and sculpts my cheeks. I store it in the freezer and it’s ice cold every morning. Watch this video on how to properly sculpt your face using the roller.

Microwave popcorn popper maker – I’ve seen this product for a couple years now and finally put it in my shopping cart. Do you want to know a secret? I have a bowl of popcorn every week. Yup. I wonder if this makes it healthier because you’re using kernels instead of the packaged ones in the bag? Probably not. 😂 But it’s cool! Comes in other colors as well.


So, do you think Oprah would approve?

Tell me some of your go to items you love to give as gifts.


Happy shopping & Happy Holidays
