Does it feel early for a gift guide? Yes. But retailers kicked off the holiday season weeks ago and now that Halloween has passed, we're fully in it. So without further ado...our first gift guide!
This one is for the inner child. Don't we all want to feel that sense of nostalgia especially around the holidays? Delight your loved ones with everything from a face mask that bubbles up & makes you look like a troll from Frozen to intricate LEGOS.
A note about gift guides...I tend to curate them based on products we may already own, products I have my eye on, products that others who I trust share, and products from brands I'm a fan of! There will be some inevitable cross-over along the way so be sure to check out all the guides as I continue to share them (and sign up for our newsletter where I'll send them out).
Some items may sell out quickly (but could restock) so you’re best ordering as early as possible this year especially because of inconsistent shipping times and signing up for in-stock notifications where available. Another tip is if you use the LTK app (follow @mstarrevdesign here!), you can simply save items if you're not ready to purchase or need to go back to something. All of these gift guide items will be posted there as well!
01. BRINKER & ELIZA 🌈 LENNON NECKLACE AT MAISONETTE
You can't help but smile wearing this cheerful necklace.
02. THERAPY DOUGH BY CAMMIE & KIP WEEKS AT UNCOMMON GOODS
Stressed? Bored? Distract yourself with this dough infused with essential oils.
03. COCKTAIL SMOKER BY UNCOMMON GOODS
Customize your cocktails with an easy-to-use glass topper smoker.
Fun for all ages but the retro vibe of this one certainly feels more grown up.
05. NINTENDO SWITCH WITH OLED MODEL
My brother got this recently and I admit, it's realllllllly fun, especially to play all the old games I played as a kid. This one comes with a 7" screen if you're not near a TV!
06. HOME ALONE LEGOS
I almost bought this for myself last year and remain tempted. An activity that ends up a piece of memorabilia? Sold. Same with this 07. LEGO FLOWER BOUQUET.
08. BLACK DAHLIA CBD LOLLIPOPS AT JAYSON HOME
Stay stress free this holiday season with CBD lollipops in flavors such as huckleberry and paloma.
09. WRAPABLES PIG MINI TABLETOP VACUUM
If you think I didn't immediately add this to my Amazon cart, you'd be very wrong. Perfect stocking stuffer!
10. EMBROIDERED HEART STRAW BAG BY MARK & GRAHAM
Hearts just take me back to childhood. Plus you can add a monogram to this chic & versatile bag.
11. THE GREAT X EDDIE BAUER THE HUNT PAC MINI BOOT
A winter essential in a whimsical floral pattern.
12. MAKE YOUR OWN REEL FINDER BY UNCOMMON GOODS
Remember these? Instead of looking at something ready-made, gather your cherished photos and enjoy those memories.
13. FAT BRAIN TOYS MINIATURE MODEL KIT - GRACIE'S GREENHOUSE
Not for the faint of heart, it supposedly takes serious attention to detail and patience to put this model together but it's adorable!
14. CHLOE ART CRAFTS FLORAL EMBROIDERY KIT ON ETSY
This kit comes with a hoop, illustrated linen fabric and the needle & thread, everything you need to create your own piece of embroidered art.
15. HEARTH & HAND AT TARGET TABLETOP PING PONG SET
Got a table? All you need is this cute set to keep everyone busy.
16. ELIZAVECCA MILKY PIGGY BUBBLE CLAY MASK
You have to look at the review photos. Hilarious but more importantly this South Korean detoxifying mask seems to work really well and the price can't be beat!
