they say it's the most wonderful time of the year!

Now, because I'm somewhat of a realist, I know you might not feel that way just yet. For many of us the holidays are often filled with more stress than cheer, work than play, and gift-giving anxiety rather than gift-giving excitement. I'm personally obsessed with finding the perfect gifts for friends and family as soon as there's a slight chill in the air, but also feel that twinge of pressure as the holidays approach at lightning speed. Still, whether the gift is big or small, homemade or tirelessly hunted, silly or sentimental, there's something very fulfilling about the giving process from start to finish.

To alleviate any of that searching-for-the-perfect-gift anxiety this year, I teamed up with Kaufmann-Mercantile (and my go-to stylist Alex) to hand pick a range of gifts that peaked my interest, but also felt customizable for a range of people that we all have on our list year after year. Whether it's the mother-in-law you can never quite find the right thing for, or your old work wife who you desperately need to get a drink with already, there's a gift here that suits everyone. 


So grab the rest of your Thanksgiving leftovers, a Gilmore sized glass of wine, and browse our gift guide below!
