Your guide to the best holiday gifts for men, women, and home has arrived just in time for black Friday. I know, I know – there are loads of choices and you’re wondering how on earth you’re going to decide on the right gifts for your loved ones. It’s such a struggle that’s why I curated a list again this year. Don’t be a Grinch – get something off this list and you’ll be set for a great holiday season.
Men’s Gift Guide
First up is the men’s guide. I always find it so difficult to find things for the guys in my life. Usually, I end up getting some sort of gadget type gift for them and they seem pretty happy. Sometimes, clothes are necessary, especially if they don’t like to shop for themselves so we’ve got some of those in here too.
1. Filson – Scout Shirt | 2. Hammacher Schlemmer – The Author’s Classic Typewriter Keyboard | 3. Amazon – U2SKIIN Mens Cotton Robe Lightweight Knit Bathrobe | 4. Amazon – BOMBAX Men Travel Jacket 10 Pocket Zip Up Hoodie | 5. Nordstrom – Check Cashmere Scarf | 6. Amazon – Camera Lens Kit by Coral Entertainments | 7. Hammacher Schlemmer – The Indoor Flameless Marshmallow Roaster | 8. Nordstrom – Barefoot Dreams® CozyChic(TM) Lite Raglan Sweater | 9. Uncommon Goods – Create Your Own Reel Viewer | 10. Amazon – Van Der Hagen Scented Shave Soap | 11. Art of Shaving – Sandalwood Travel Shaving Kit with Jet Black Morris Park Razor | 12. Mark and Graham – Men’s Tech Folio
If you’re up to splurge on some items for the guy in your life, I’d jump in with Filson shirt (1), cashmere scarf (5), and the Barefoot dreams sweater (8). My brother-in-law is a huge fan of Filson shirt’s so those have a definite seal of approval. Barefoot dreams clothing and blankets are always so soft!
As for gadgets, I think the classic typewriter keyboard where you attach it to your iPad is pretty cool and a definite different gift this year. Yep, it’s a bit old splurge as well, but if money is no object, it’s something to think about.
Home Gift Guide

You know how there are always some people who seem to have everything and you have no clue what to get them? Maybe something for their house will fit the bill. You can go on the less expensive side with a candle (8), a blanket basket (10), or an adorable mug (7) for their morning coffee or tea. For the people with more expensive taste who are concerned about security a Ring doorbell (2) will be a great gift.
1. Barney’s – Chloé Susanna Leather Ankle Boots | 2. Maison Miru – Illusion Hoops | 3. Missoma – Gold Texture Twins Hair Slide Set | 4. and other stories – Draped Metallic Satin Mini Skirt | 5.

Welcome to the biggest guide of all – the one for women. These can be for your mothers, sisters, girlfriends, whoever likes women’s stuff – no rules here, just cool gifts. There are a few splurges, numbers 1 and 12, but then the dupes for less, 7 and 13 respectively. Number 6 is a pretty similar to this Gucci bag if you’re looking for something cute, not going to break the bank, and looks high end.
I’ve also picked two less known stores that I think should start getting more love. The illusion hoop earrings (2) are super cool, innovative, and from an up and coming designer in NYC. The Sunday Spa candle (8) is from a woman owned company I first heard about from Instagram. See, good things do come of social media sometimes!
Also found out that the Good American jeans are almost a steal if you get them from Nordstrom Rack! I’ve talked about how much I love these jeans here and there, including this post. I’m dragging my mother to the Rack on Black Friday to see if we can get an even better deal!
