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.

You can find more of my holiday gift guides from previous years here – the ideas are all still great, I promise!

Holiday Gift Guide 2023

Perfect for the Home Cook

Vintage Fish Butter Mold

I love the idea of creating special butter for a dinner party. 

Ploughgate Butter Lover Subscription

It doesn’t get much better than high quality butter. I love this subscription that sends 3 monthly butters including a special flavor. Pair with the vintage butter molds and you have the perfect gift!

Going along with a butter theme this year, this butter spreading knife from French brand Opinel can be personalized up to 25 characters and comes in an array of colors. I’ve already gone ahead and added one to my cart. 

Beyond Measure Measuring Cup

This colorful glass measuring cup brightens up your kitchen.

Fredricks and Mae Chopping Block

I often prefer plastic cutting boards since they are easy to clean and flexible for so many types of food. This one can double as a serving board with its bright pattern or even kitchen art.

Tree Juice Maple Syrup Sampler

After a recent trip to Vermont, Aaron and I have become invested in good quality maple syrup. This syrup is made in New York and comes in fun flavors like pure, gingerbread, blueberry and even garlic.

Perfect for the Hostess

Farfalle Candle

Big night (based in Brooklyn) is the coolest home good store.

Hot Ones Hot Sauce Set

Perfect for fans of the web series Hot Ones in which celebrities are interviewed while eating increasingly hot chicken wings. Stage your own show at home or simply enjoy the hot sauces on your favorite foods. 

Two-Tone Glasses

I love unique glassware that can be mixed and matched. 

Via Carota Martini Set

One of my favorite West Village Italian restaurants sells their martinis as a set! A combination of their signature martini and espresso martini and it comes with glasses). 

Sour Mix from Bon Bon

For the candy lover! Choose a little something sweet from this Swedish candy company specializing in gummies and sour candies.

This colorful French press combines form and function perfect for the coffee lover who doesn’t want to leave the house.

Chess Board

Whether you actually play or not it looks great on a coffee table.

Casper Sleep Essential Cooling Pillow

There’s no need to flip your pillow to the cold side when it stays cool all night long. 

Silk Eye Mask

Sleep with this organic mulberry silk sleep mask over your eyes to get a good night’s sleep.

Perfect for the Traveler

Most people have TSA pre-check nowadays but Clear will get you through even faster! Get escorted to the front of the security line with Clear. 

Beis Backpack

While it can be either a travel bag or diaper bag I like that it can easily fit a laptop and it easily slides onto a suitcase when traveling. 

Audible Subscription

I love listening to audiobooks when I’m on the go. Gift a subscription any bookworm who has a lot of alone time will appreciate. 

Leather Charger Roll Up

Keep your cords and small items organized in this monogrammed carrying case.  

Perfect for Pet Parents 

LL Bean Tote

I have a monogrammed travel bag for my dog, Benson, filled with toys, food and bowls that makes it so easy to take her in the car for road trips or over to a friend’s house for a little overnight stay. 

Earthbone Subscription

A more natural alternative to greenies. My dog is obsessed with these and I put them on subscription so I don’t need to think about restocking.

Staud Pet Bag

Order a custom, hand-painted portrait of your pet on a chic leather purse or a cashmere sweater with your pet’s face embroidered on it.  

Dyson Grooming attachment

I have a golden retriever which equals lots of pet hair. I love this Dyson attachment to my vacuum that makes brushing her easy (and much cleaner). 

Glen Lenovitz Pet Portrait

Gift your favorite pet parent with a portrait of their fur baby created by a local New York artist. 

For Babies (and Their Parents)

Moose Toy

Mortimer has been my son’s favorite toy for a long time. With high-contrast colored legs and textured loops there is plenty to keep a kid entertained. 

My First Chair

This monogrammed chair from Pottery Barn is so cute and soft. My son loves to sit in it for snack time or use it as a climbing wall. 

JellyCat Toy

Any plush toys from jellycat are super soft and cute. They have such a range of food-themed toys it’s hard not to buy them all. We have this carrot, a croissant and more.

Artipoppe Carrier

This is a major splurge but one of the products I used most throughout the newborn stage and is still my backup method to get Jackson to fall asleep. I added it to this guide because mine was a present from my mom for Christmas last year and I have been so grateful for the luxe carrier! 

Baby Uggs

Keep your babies feet cozy as the temperatures drop. I don’t have many shoes for my baby since he’s not walking yet but these boots are functional.
