Gift Guide: My Wishlist

Of course I couldn’t make all these gift guides without including a few things on my list. I’ve rounded up a few things that are either favorites of mine or have been on my mind (read: list) for some time. If you’re looking for gift inspiration for yourself or see something

  1. ChappyWrap Blanket – I have been a fan of ChappyWrap for a long time but as the weather gets chillier, I find myself gravitating to it every single night. They are so cozy and I love that you can wash them and they come out of the washer just as cozy.
  2. Classic Mini Ugg Boot – I know these are back to being trendy (didn’t we all live in Uggs in college?!) But thinking this short pair will be perfect for chilly errands to to pop on on the way to Pure Barre in the mornings.
  3. LL Bean Boat & Tote  – Love the Ironic Boat & Tote theme this year and I mean, who doesn’t want a bag full of Bellinis?
  4. Lele Sadoughi Knotted Headbands – these are my favorite accessory EVER!
  5. Dyson Airwrap – This is on my list every year. I can’t justify buying one with the mixed reviews and truthfully never expect anyone to gift this to me but it’s so aesthetically pleasing so I keep it on the list.
  6. Chiara Sunglasses – these are my favorite sunglasses and mine are .. very well loved/ worn. Time to replace!
  7. J. Lowery Max Bag – I discovered this new-ish brand and have been obsessed with their Max bag. Women owned and made in the USA.
  8. Pure Barre Membership – If you’ve been following along, I have fallen in love with Pure Barre this year and will definitely be staying on as a member in 2023!
  9. 3-in-1 wireless charging station – time to declutter my nightstand!
  10. New Ski Attire from Halfdays – Obsessed with Halfdays. I always envy cute ski outfits but end up looking like Ralphie’s little brother from A Christmas Story because your girl gets COLD! Halfdays has gear to keep you warm but also cute on the slopes. They also just became available at Nordstrom!
  11. Gucci Bloom Rollerball Perfume – these are great stocking stuffers too! So easy to travel with or throw in your purse to refresh throughout the day!
  12. Birdies Swan Slipper– I am obsessed with Birides, they are so comfy and cute and I will not rest until I have a pair of each!
  13. Star Leggings – How fun are these leggings!?
  14. Summer Fridays Balm in Vanilla Beige – I have heard this is amazing (source is definitely TikTok lol) so hoping it may appear in my stocking this year!
  15. Canopy Beauty Humidifier – I’ve been toying with the idea of a bedside humidifier for a while now but since moving to our new house, it gets very dry… aka so does my skin. This one is aesthetically pleasing and has great reviews.
  16. Weezie Bath Towel Bundle – I have held off on buying new linens for our bathrooms until we redo them but I will definitely be getting Weezie Towels. They’re the best!

Gift Guide: Local Love


Shopping (and gifting!) local is so, so important to our communities. Here are some of my favorite Fairfield County small businesses in honor of Small Business Saturday. Some of my favorite gifts I’ve received have been gift cards to local spots. If you’re stumped on a physical gift or feeling a bit overwhelmed by the emphasis on consumerism this season, supporting out local business by gifting their products or services via gift cards are a welcomed idea. I’ve included all my favorite spots from coffee to dinners to fashion to my favorite workout spot.
