Black Friday and Cyber Monday are only two weeks away so it’s the perfect time to gather your thoughts around holiday gift ideas. I also recommend creating a list of must-haves and planning out a budget for the season. Although I will be sharing a personalized gift guide each week going forward, I wanted to kick it off with universal gifts I resort to year after year. These are the foolproof gifts that you can give at a moment’s notice for anyone to love and appreciate. Let’s get started!
1 Smeg Retro Toaster
Smeg is definitely one of my favorite home brands for kitchen appliances. Anyone who cares about “aesthetic” will go crazy for the sleek, glam, retro design of this toaster. It comes in several other colorways but the pastel green is my favorite.

2 Slip Silk Pillowcase & Mask Set
Pure silk pillowcases might seem pricey but they can do wonders for your hair and skin. This is a perfect gift for any woman that matters in your life. Aside from being so chic, it’ll help minimize wrinkles and creases over time.
Other Picks: Beauty Sleep On The Go Kit | Silk Pillow Case
3 Sheet Mask Kit
A girl can never have too many sheet masks. My favorite are by Dr. Jart, so when I saw that many of the ones I use are in this kit, I knew I had to pick up a few. They’re great for travel – or just to pamper yourself over the crazy season.
Other Picks: Fresh Face Mask Set | Sephora Magic Face Mask Set | Laneige Sleeping Mask Set
4 Diptyque Holiday Scents
As a homeowner, I know how essential candles are, so I totally believe in splurging on beautiful holiday sets. Diptyque, Byredo, and Jo Malone are fashion girl classics that literally everyone loves.
Other Candle Picks: Diptyque Trio Set | Jo Malone Candle Set | Mini Candle Set
5 Tom Ford Lippies
Since the holidays are a time to put your best face forward, you can’t go wrong with gifting lip kits. There are so many options from several of my favorite brands that even I had a difficult time narrowing down this list. At the end of the day though, this Tom Ford one surely won’t disappoint.
Other Lip Picks: Fresh Sugar Lip Balms | Nars Lip Pencil Set | Charlotte Tilbury Lip Duo
6 Sugarfina Gummy Bento Box
Edibles are a good idea for neighbors, coworkers, or even a boss. Shopbox is brimming with many cute sets from Sugarfina. There are even alcohol-infused gummies that are so perfectly festive.
Other Edible Picks: Rosé Gummies Set | Starbucks Gift Basket | Sugarfina Margarita Kit
7 Bobbi Brown Travel Brush Kit
This travel brush set is ideal for anyone building a beauty kit or for that friend who’s always on the go. It includes Bobbi Brown’s top 5 best-selling brushes. And I love that you get full sized brush heads!
Other Brush Picks: Chanel Brush Set | Laura Mercier Glow Set | Sigma Selfie Set
8 Sunday Riley Skincare Kit
Since winter is a good time to start changing up one’s skincare routine, you can help a friend or family member kick it off with a quality set for the holidays. Two brands that have been on heavy rotation are Sunday Riley and Drunk Elephant.
Other Skincare Picks: Drunk Elephant Skincare Set | Tatcha Skincare Bento Box | Dr. Jart Skin Transformers
9 Beautiful Coffee Table Book
For the ladies who have it all, I always like to pick up a book or two. Make sure you grab one with a cute cover that will look great for displaying on the shelf or coffee table. Shopbop is stocked with tons of cute options right now.
Other Book Picks: The Little Dictionary of Fashion | Cherry Bombe: The Cookbook | The Beauty Chef
10 Featherweight Hair Dryer
It can be easy to get bogged down in skincare and makeup sets, but don’t neglect game changing haircare tools and kits for the holidays. Since tools and quality products tend to be higher priced, keep an eye out for discounts that’ll come up over Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Below are my favorites to watch!
Other Haircare Picks: Moroccanoil Favorites Set | Dyson Airwrap Styler | Dyson & Ouai Haircare Set
