and just like that… it was December

The holidays have managed to sneak up on us, as they always do, meaning there’s no time to waste in finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list. While there’s so much more joy to be found this time of year aside from material goods and the receiving of gifts, I do have a very special place in my heart for finding the perfect little luxury, sentimental object, or useful tool to package up beautifully and offer to loved ones.

This year, I’ve curated a guide that features beautiful gifts from brands of all sizes. Many I have worked with, many are friends, and most importantly all of them are products that I love and would gift in a heartbeat. My BFF + Prop Stylist extraordinaire Alex (she does the props for Good Housekeeping Magazine!) and I spent two crazy and fun-filled days in my home studio styling this guide, listening to all of the jazz Christmas on Spotify and taste testing every piece of chocolate that made its way into a scene.

I hope you find something special tucked away in this guide, or some inspiration to guide your gift giving choices this holiday season.
Happy Holidays!
