Coin necklaces are very “in” right now! I love this Compass Coin Necklace from Gorjana. A compass symbolizes a guides for travelers. In 2020 we aren’t doing much traveling, but think of the journey as life itself. Gift a special someone on your list the gift of guidance for their life’s journey. I can see this necklace being a family heirloom for generations to come!
I layer this necklace with the 5 Disc Choker.
I have gifted this Leather Travel Case Set from Cuyana many times with rave reviews! The best part – You can personalize the cases with the recipients initials. It is great for a bride-to-be if the bride will be changing her initials!
This travel case set is not only used for travel, but for daily makeup and toiletries at home. These personalized toiletry set will make your makeup or skincare routine feel luxurious!
These shearling lace-up boots from Marc Fisher are very trendy right now, but they will never go out of style! These are the perfect mild winter boots for the fashionista on your holiday shopping list!
If you read my blog post on optimizing sleep, you will have learned the benefits of blocking blue light at night! These are also great to wear during the day for the loved one on your list that works in front of a computer all day long.
Handcrafted from Italian acetate, these rounded frames are universally flattering.
Also highlighted in my post on getting better sleep, this silk eye mask is the perfect luxury sleep accessories. It is made of the highest grade mulberry silk for the ultimate beauty sleep, and has anti-wrinkle benefits as it doesn’t tug at delicate parts of the face.
This mask is natural, hypoallergenic, dust mite-resistant, and allows skin to breathe—unlike synthetic satin (polyester) which sweats, essentially negating the benefits.
I have tried many sleep masks, and this one is my favorite!
Let’s face it – No one is wearing jeans in 2020!
Meet the pants you’ll never want to take off! The Performance Joggers from Vuori have a slim but relaxed fit with a slightly cropped leg, side pockets and a drawstring. Designed with the softest premium stretch fabric, they are my to go sweats for lounging in the house or running errands out and about.

They are meant to be worn during yoga, Pilates, at home exercises, core training, or running to intensify your workout.
This are my all-time favorite PJs! Yes, most holiday gift guides include full length, cozy pajamas, but those aren’t realistic for sleep! These thermoregulating pajamas helps maintain the perfect body temperature for sleep.
This silk set is beautiful and luxurious, but is also functional and machine washable!
These are Lunya’s #1 best seller for a reason!
It’s just like having a facial right at home! I use this about once a week to detoxify my skin, clear pores, and stimulate circulation.

Holiday Gift Guide For Him
Looking for the perfect gift for the special man in your life? These are some of my boyfriends personal favorites, and would be appropriate for the boyfriend, husband, father, son, or special friend in your life.
Again, if you have any questions about the products themselves (we have most of them in our home) please feel free to reach out!
Faherty Brand is our favorite clothing brand, and where my boyfriend gets the majority of his wardrobe! They create very high quality clothing from only sustainable, organic materials!
Want two shirts for the price of one? This flannel is engineered to be perfectly reversible! This buttery soft shirt woven from organic cotton is perfectly lightweight and ready for any New England season.
This is a modern upgrade to the old dull beard trimmer most men have in their bathroom! My boyfriend has used every beard trimming device under the sun, and swears by the OneBlade. He says you get the benefit of using freshly sharp disposable blades, but in a traditional electric “buzzer” shape. It works great at any facial hair length, whether trimming a longer beard or shaving it all off. They also have a body attachment which makes it doubly versatile.
This is a daily essential that just plain works well.
Almost every pair of socks in our household is from Bombas. Remember them from Shark Tank? Their socks really are amazing, and the perfect stocking stuffer!
Bombas is a quality-obsessed brand that engineers its socks to be the most comfortable and durable sock your foot has ever felt, and they are constantly looking for more ways to innovate and improve.
Better yet, Bombas donates a pair of socks to a person in need with every pair purchased!
These Merino Wool socks will keep his feet warm in the winter and cool and dry summer.
Men need a toiletry case too! Paravel has earned a cult following for its stylish, streamlined luggage, crafted from durable-yet-lightweight fabrics. This “wash kit” is perfect for stashing all of his toiletries.
Bonus: it zips down to the size of a wallet for easy storage when it’s not in use.
The Rhone commuter pants are a great staple for his closet. They are soft and stretchy enough to be worn lounging around like sweatpants, but appear to everyone else as “normal” pants. They are great for light athletic activities like golf, trail walking, traveling, etc. Or, looking more professional while working from home, but still getting the comfort of sweatpants.
This backpack is perfect and stylish for his laptop or light travel!
The Herschel Settlement backpack modernizes an iconic vintage style with unique design features and quality construction.
The Leatherman Wave Plus Multitool is an instant toolkit in his pocket!
He will be ready for anything with the most commonly used tools, premium replaceable wire cutters for tackling tough jobs, all-locking blades, spring-action scissors, and more!
This is another Faherty favorite! This Quilted Pullover is soft, cozy, and incredibly tough. This pullover is designed for versatility – It is ready to layer over your favorite shirts or wear beneath heavier jackets on the coldest days.
This wallet is heavy duty and will last a lifetime. My boyfriend has had this for a few years and still get tons of questions and compliments about it! The leather wears in over time like a baseball glove, and the metal frame can be used as a bottle opener. Trayvax also makes a few other less heavy duty versions which are all great and high quality.
Stylish and warm!
Carhartt has been making workwear that stands the test of time since 1889, and through its Work in Progress division, it has acquired major street-style cred in recent years. Like the rest of the line, these beanies are a perfect blend of streetwear cool and workwear ruggedness.
Marine Layer is another one of our favorite clothing brands. Ready for work or play. My boyfriend wheres this during this for work (in person or on Zoom calls) to look professional, yet still feel like he’s wearing a cozy sweatshirt.
Nobody is wearing jeans nowadays! These joggers are perfect for lounging at home, or on the go.
A fresh take on “athleisure” and a staple in any wardrobe, the Sunday Performance Joggers are premier in fit, function and soft stretch. These joggers offer equal parts of style and comfort.
These are perfect house slippers in the cold winter months. They are suede on the exterior with a UGG wool lining interior!
This hat is a staple in any man’s closet! The bill and brim are made from organic cotton with a polyester mesh back panel and adjustable snapback.
For the man that can’t get away from wearing sneakers!

It features a Vibram sole, soft leather insole and lining, smooth leather upper, and comes equipped with two types of laces, both cotton and waxed cotton, to fit your style. Handmade in an ethical factory in León, Mexico.
I love a good Yeti tumbler. Nothing better than leaving a hot drink around and knowing it will still be hot for hours. Having a good tumbler makes me want to make my own coffee in the morning, because I know it will be hot and fresh. But, even when I do get coffee, I will still pour it in the Yeti to keep it hot. It also works great for getting into the habit of drinking tea at home.
