This holiday gift guide is filled with exciting and delicious gifts fit for an array of different loved ones in your life. From home cooks and foodies to homebody’s and faith-based gifts.
I will definitely be gifting a few of these items to my family and friends this year!
I made an effort to include more affordable options for some of the gifts, because I know many of us are on a budget this year!
For the Home Cook
If you’re looking to spice up your kitchen cabinet with some hand-painted, high-quality dinnerware these are a great addition. They come in three different adorable colors. Highly recommend!
Yep, the skillet that everyone is raving about. It really is extremely non-stick. Seriously, food glides off the surface. And not to mention the colors…I am in love.
The #1 staple and must-have in your kitchen. A sharp chef’s knife is extremely multi-purpose and is a must above anything else. Wusthof is the knife I have and more affordable than other high-quality options, but there are still so many on the market!
This is a great stocking stuffer and for any eco-friendly lover out there! Honestly, a great gift for anyone, because we all know how wasteful plastic wrap and Ziplocs are.
I received this oven as a gift last Christmas and I swear by it. It is so helpful in the kitchen whether I am whipping up a stew or curry (options are endless). Plus it can go in the oven (hence –dutch oven). It is pricey, so here is a cheaper option.
A quality, sustainable kitchen utensil set is a great addition to anyone’s kitchen.
We all know the hassle of hand grinding spices, so this comes in handy (or lack thereof…lol). Using whole spices in cooking elevates your dishes to a whole other level, so this makes that process easier.
The best measuring cups and spoons, in my opinion. The spoons are magnetic and don’t come with that annoying ring. They are heavy and highly durable too! They are pricey, but worth every cent, however here is a cheaper alternative.
For the Foodie
My favorite dark chocolate, by far. One, because they are local, and two they just taste so dang good. They don’t lack in the flavor department, contain organic, sustainable ingredients, and are fair trade. Seriously, everything about this company is amazing.
Hands down these are the best nut butters out there. Abby’s Better nut butters are extremely creamy have delicious festive flavors. Ground Up PDX is an incredible brand that provides job training in Portland, OR (how cool?). Their flavors are crazy unique, but extremely flavorful.
Any Chai lovers out there? These are high-quality teas that come in adorable, festive packaging.
Ask me my favorite ice cream and I will ALWAYS rave about Frankie & Jos. They are a Seattle-based, women-owned company that strives to provide high-quality vegan ice cream. They deliver way more than high-quality ice cream, it’s seriously mind-blowing. The flavors are like anything else and the texture is insane. I could go on and on about this ice cream, but you will just have to taste it for yourself.
A subscription is a great gift because it’s like Christmas once a month! Trade Coffee subscription provides an extensive selection of fair-trade local and non-local coffee delivered right to your door.
For the Homebody
I mean, who can complain about cozy socks? Plus these are adorably festive.
A good smelling room is an ideal room. These room sprays are extremely fragrant in the best way possible. Want your room to smell like a walk through a forest? This is it.
This robe is on the top of my Christmas list this year. Who doesn’t want to stay in all-day wearing a robe that feels like a cloud?
If you’re a homebody then you need to have a comfy set of loungewear. These are cute, cozy, and sustainably made.
Again, with the good-smelling room. An oil diffuser will last a whole lot longer than a candle and the scent selection is endless!
For the Christian
I received these highlighters as a gift several years ago and absolutely love them! Bible pages are made of scrittle paper, which is a highly thin paper and very sensitive to harsh pens/pencils. These highlighters are made of gel and glide on the paper preventing any damage.
If you want to study the New Testament, but the Big Book intimidates you this a great solution. Each book in the NT is separated into their own individual book and each page has a page for notes on the right. It couldn’t be more organized and convenient than that.
Ask me what my favorite book I have read this year and I will say Garden City. It teaches you how to slow down and embrace your calling and God-given purpose in life. Please, go read it!!
