(Also love this heeled version on sale under $50 right now). My faaaaavorite jewelry brand is also 25% off site-wide right now.

Our espresso machine is definitely more of a splurge, but would be an amazing luxe gift for someone on your list – it’s also on sale right now! I’m also a sucker for all things Smeg. How pretty is this toaster?? For hostess gifts, you can’t go wrong with cute monogram cheese boards and these candle wick trimmers are such a good simple gift she’ll love (or add your favorite candle for more of a set).

The colors are so good and it comes with 2 full-sized colors so you can also split up for stocking stuffers. This quilted puffer is so good and comes in multiple colors I have had it for 2 years and they bring it back every year! It’s on sale right now (along with everything else at H&M! 30% off so run don’t walk haha, sizes always sell out fast on their site when they are running deals!) I also ordered more of these shorts. They are my most-owned product – I think I’ve bought them in like 8 colors. They are super high-waisted and sooooo comfortable. I also have these ribbed bralettes in multiple colors.

I posted on stories to poll teachers and find out what gifts they actually want during the holidays and they had so many good ideas! A few things they mentioned they get a ton of and can’t possibly use them all: mugs, ornaments, and chocolates. A plant for their classroom that students can help care for, a new book to add to their class library (also mentioned games for the classroom as a good idea), personalized office supplies (love these pencils or this cute teacher stationery!) But hands down the most requested answer was wine and gift cards. I was also surprised many said they would love wine – this cute wine subscription box would be the gift that keeps on giving. (Or you could order for yourself and split up others as gifts this season.) And of course you can’t go wrong with gift cards. Anything for shopping, Starbucks, a local spa/massage, even a few mentioned for grocery stores. They said anything personalized for the classroom they love too! I thought this stationary is so cute and would be awesome to put their name on it so they can write noes 🙂 And if you aren’t doing teacher gifts this year, never under estimate a hand-written note from your kids. So many teachers responded how much they treasure those hand-written notes and save them for years!
