My Favorite Things Holiday Gift Guide

A couple of days ago, Oprah came out with her Favorite Things List for 2022. I loved several of her picks, and even ordered a few. I’ll include my 10 favorite picks from her list at the end of this post. Oprah’s list got me in the mood to make a selection of gifts that are some of my very favorite items to give and receive. You will see me wearing or using many of them on a daily or weekly basis, so they come highly recommended with my stamp of approval!

My Favorite Things Holiday Gift Guide


Kendra Scott Cross Necklace in Silver

This cross necklace is of wonderful quality and can be worn with absolutely anything. More importantly, I love the meaning behind it! You can see me wearing it in gold here.

Rechargeable Fabric Shaver

It is sweater weather, and almost all sweaters will get pills. Save your favorite sweaters and furniture pieces with this rechargeable fabric shaver. This handy tool gets rid of pills, dust, pet hair, lint, and more. It is small and compact, so it would be great to keep in your car console or desk drawer at the office.

Sherpa Pullover Sweater

I wore this over the weekend, and I promise you’ll never want to take it off. You will be warm and cozy in this soft sherpa pullover! I love wearing it while I’m lounging at home or wearing it to run errands with jeans and a pair of sneakers. It comes in so many different colors you may find yourself wanting a second or third! I own this one, #2, Khaki.

UGG Lenny Robe

I love this full-length robe; it is so cozy to wrap up in every morning. It’s a little more of a splurge item, but it is of wonderful quality and will last for years to come!

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Blush

One of the makeup products I find myself reaching for on a daily basis! The color is beautiful, and it’s so pigmented that a little goes a long way.

Lightweight Full-Zip Track Jacket

This fitted but flattering running jacket is a great dupe for a more expensive Lululemon one! It’s great for throwing on over your exercise clothes on the way to the gym, running outdoors in cooler weather, or just wearing as athleisure when you are out doing errands.

Chanel Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue Ultra Wear Lip Colour

Even if you don’t own Chanel jewelry or handbags, you can still look luxurious with these Chanel Lip Ultra Wear lip colours. The long-wear color is on one end, and a glossy topcoat is on the other. I love that the lip color goes on smoothly and dries quickly. The color I wear the most often is the Sensual Rose.

Rechargeable Electric Candle Lighter

Do you like burning candles in your home or office? This rechargeable electric candle lighter makes lighting your favorite candles so convenient and easy! I like that I’m not constantly looking for batteries.

UGG Scuffette II Slipper

I have these UGG slippers, and they keep my feet cozy all year long. This pair has a rubber sole so that you can step out to check the mail or grab a package without ruining your house shoes.

Our Place Home Cook Duo

The Perfect Pot and Always Pan were thoughtfully designed to replace 16 pieces of traditional cookware. Together, they’re an entire cooking system in just two pieces. From baking to sauteing, crisping to boiling, this duo gives you so much more with a whole lot less. Mix and match colors for a custom look! I gave the Always Pan as Christmas gifts last year and every one loved it.

Kendra Scott Maggie 2.5″ Hoop Earrings

These earrings by Kendra Scott are a little more glamorous take on a classic gold hoop. They also come in rose gold and silver. You can see me wearing them here. This is the large version, but there is a smaller version also. 

Lululemon Align High-Rise Pant

These are an investment piece, but truly are the best of the best. The minute I pulled on the Align Leggings, I was hooked. They are incredibly soft and paper-thin but not at all see-through. If you are looking for a more affordable option, these are wonderful for the price!

Wrangler Women’s Denim Jacket

I love this denim jacket, and you see me wearing it all the time! It’s perfect for throwing over a graphic tee or styling over a dress, making it a staple wardrobe item in the spring and fall.

Brahmin Finley Small Croc Leather Satchel

I received a Brahmin Finley bag for Valentine’s Day from my husband, and I LOVE the quality and workmanship of this special bag. You can see it styled with one of my outfits here.

    I am a little overwhelmed with all of the blogs I read doing Christmas lists blogs! I work in retail and with temps still in the eighty here hard to feel the Christmas spirit yet. Don’t get me wrong I work in retail so I know people are buying I just can’t get motivated yet. You have picked some good ideas out. Love your try on sessions with all price point merchandise! Thank you for keeping it real and remembering we all have budgets to consider. I am afraid some of my favorite bloggers have gone all high end! I realize sponsors pay but I really can’t afford a high end budget on all of my clothes.
