I’ve been debating whether to put together a holiday gift guide this year for a few weeks. To be honest, I am just glad to have good health and feel abundantly blessed for my family and friends to be in good health, earning a decent wage and thriving. T has asked me repeatedly for what I want for Christmas and my answer has always been “I don’t really need anything.” I finally sat down to really think about things I would love to receive especially with the state of events this year. My list includes items for homebodies (I work from home full-time) and the gal or gent who wants to feel luxuriously pampered while cooped up at home.
1. Rothy’s Large Catchall (to keep my jewelry and sunglasses organized) // 2. Vernon Francois Nourishing Water (for healthy hair growth) // 3. Skims Cozy Knit Robe (size inclusive up to size 5x) // 4. Tom Ford Skin Illuminating Powder (for that warm luxe healthy glow for Zoom calls) // 5. T3 Twirl Trio Styling Wand Set (interchangeable wand to create different curly hair looks) // 6. Brinker & Eliza Showstopper Necklace (the statement necklace for those Zoom meetings and cocktail parties) // 7. Necessaire Hand Cream (to keep hands moisturized with due to frequent hand washing) // 8. Mark & GrahamNOMAD Rugged Case For AirPods // 9. CLEAR Touchless Airport Entry Membership // 10. North Face Hiking Boots (I want to explore nature a lot more with weekend hikes) // 11. Elemis Star Performer Skincare Set // 12. She’s Unique Eclipse Necklace // 13. PAT McGRATH LABS – Mini Gilty Pleasures Lip Trio
14. Louis Vuitton Coeur Battant Spray Set (something a little luxurious to transport me right back to Paris) // 15. Ugg Scufette II Slippers // 16. Legacy Box Digitizing Kit (to digitize the hundreds of family photos and videos in my parent’s house) // 17. Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream // 18. Canon RF 15-35mm Lens // 19. Susan Shaw Coin Intaglio Earrings (a statement everyday pair of earrings) // 20. Smith & Cult Nail Polish Set // 21. Atlantic-Pacific x Cambridge 2021 Planner (to keep 2021 wedding planning and appointments on schedule) // 22. Deepa by Deepa Gurnani Lux Padded Headband // 23. P.volve Fitness Program (to shed the COVID-25 pounds)
24. Masterclass Subscription (I received this last year and took so many classes on the app) // 25. Dolce & Gabbana Sunglasses // 26. nuFace Trinity Facial Toning Kit (I’ve been using this microcurrent every day and love the contouring I see after each use) // 27. Skin Gym Rose Quartz Set // 28. Galaxy Classic & Chocolate Croissants (these are made to order and arrive frozen. Just pop a few in the oven for buttery and flaky croissants like the ones in Paris) // 29. Louis Vuitton Candle Trio // 30. Audible Subscription (I love reading books but it’s so fab to listen to an audiobook together with T when we’re lounging or cooking dinner) // 31. CubiCool (this French brand created a chic portable 5-litre pouch to keep wine cool for 5 hours without the need for ice. It’s perfect for sitting out in the backyard for drinks or a romantic picnic.)
There you have it, my ultimate gift guide for 2020. Do you have anything particular you’re wishing for? Are you trading gifts or sitting it out this year?
