Take these gift ideas for your loved ones (or treat yourself!). Finding the right gift for people on your list can be tough so hopefully my recommendations can make things easier. I love curating my favorite things to share and try to recommend many things that I already have and love. I’m sure there are plenty of things you will recognize from my Instagram stories.
