Stocking Stuffers
Monogram Water Bottle
A personalized and practical option, this water bottle is a great choice for an eco-conscious friend. The svelte glass bottle is wrapped in a protective silicone sleeve, perfect for hydrating on the go.
French Earl Grey Teabag Tin
Tea is an unexpectedly fun stocking stuffer, and T2 always has great options around the holidays. I love this whimsical, reusable tea tin, and the floral notes make this Earl Grey blend extra special.
Darling x Morgan Harper Nichols Playing Cards
This deck of cards is anything but traditional. Featuring conversation prompts and artwork by Morgan Nichols, you'll feel inspired to go deep while playing games with friends. I know I do!
The Homebody
Luxury Candle
In my book, giving someone a Harlem Candle Co. candle is like telling them that you love them—these candles are *that* good! This scent is floral, but not cloying, with hints of subtle vanilla.
Flower Subscription
This is a floral gift that keeps on giving. As someone who loves fresh greenery but can’t keep a plant alive in my apartment, I’d be thrilled to get a custom flower subscription like this.
Wall Hanging
If you’re on Instagram you’ve likely seen Roachele Negron’s work for Rayo & Honey. You can’t go wrong with any of her wall-hangings, but I love this one, created in collaboration with GLOSSRAGS.
Plant People
The Cradle
Plant people are all about propagating and this vessel, from plantfluencer Hilton Carter, transforms the task into a work of art. Pair with his latest book, Wild Interiors, for a truly memorable gift.
Set of Hand Tools
Despite what many think, gardening is a year-round sport! This set is perfect for the green-thumbed friend who preps plants indoors, or is waiting to spring into action when warmer weather arrives.
Glass Plant Mister
Made from glass with a metallic pump, this plant mister is a beautifully old-timey home decor accent that keeps your humidity loving plants happy. As a practically-minded person, I adore it.
The Gadget Guru
Bluetooth Speaker
This speaker features a waterproof, compact design and great sound, ideal for camping, festivals or just hanging out at home. Plus, we love that it’s made from 90% recycled plastic and biodegradable materials.
Ember Mug²
Practically a cup of cozy on demand, this mug keeps beverages warm right down to the degree. It's perfect for those lengthier work days when I need to keep my coffee or tea warm all day long.
Roomba® i3+ Robot Vacuum
“We don’t need that,” my husband said in 2016 when I bought our first Roomba. Fast forward to 2020, and he just purchased our second one for a different level of our home. They’re that good.
Wireless Charging Pad
Chances are, the tech lover in your life is not a fan of having endless cords taking over their bedside table. This pick simplifies their space, with room for other odds and ends, as well.
The Smart Garden
If you're a person who loves plants but is afraid to kill them, this smart garden is the answer you've been looking for. It's the capsule coffee machine of gardening! Let it do the work for you.
The Crafter
Mildliner Double Ended Markers
Bullet journalers swear by these double-sided markers for adding pops of color to their pages. Featuring both a board chisel tip and a fine tip, they can be used for highlighting, underlining, and note taking.
Brush Calligraphy Starter Kit
I took up calligraphy as an at-home activity and this book, from Etsy seller PrintableWisdom, was an excellent teacher. This is more than a book, it’s giving the gift of a new hobby!
Mini Sewing Machine
This portable sewing machine is a great pick for beginners or home crafters that need a machine for small jobs. Despite its compact size, it boasts helpful features and an adorable design.
Shibori Dyeing Kit
If you're into tie-dye, you'll love learning the time-honored Japanese Shibori method. This kit makes it simple to learn a new skill and transform plain clothing or linens into elevated items.
The Organization Enthusiast
Golden Coil Custom Planner
After a lifelong search for the perfect planner, being able to design my own from start to finish—complete with meal planning pages and monthly goal trackers—felt like a total treat.
The Pet Parent
Barkbox Subscription
Spoil the pup in your life with Barkbox, a whimsically-themed monthly subscription box full of toys, chews, and treats. They even offer a “Super Chewer” option for dogs who need tougher toys.
2021 Dog Rates Calendar
For dog owners, enthusiasts, or anyone who wants more joy in their life. This desk calendar, from viral Twitter account @dog_rates, features a new pup each day along with a cuteness score. 15/10, would buy again.
Sushi Roll Cat Toy
No matter what elaborate items I buy for my cat, he always gravitates towards his small, catnip-infused felt toys. These sushi rolls are so cute and way more giftable than your typical mouse toy!
Embark Breed & Ancestry DNA Test Kit
An item anyone who has adopted a mixed breed dog would be thrilled to receive. This at-home DNA kit screens over 250 breeds with results in 2 to 4 weeks, so pet parents can finally answer the question, "What kind of dog is he?"
Charitable Donation
Donating to a worthy cause is a gift we can all get behind, which is why we’re encouraging donations to Habitat For Humanity, a global nonprofit working to ensure everyone has a place to call home.
