Very fun to see Vinted in Pandora's recommendations! I live in Germany and love it for sourcing gifts. Recently I bought a couple of secondhand rainsuits with sweet patterns to bring back for my friend's toddlers in the US. They were a hit! I love thrifting in person, but it can be so freeing to find exactly what you're looking for on secondhand marketplaces like Vinted.

Bookmarking those markers, and I second Youngna's enthusiasm for the Kinto mug: It really is the best.

Oh gosh, it is crazy to say that the number one thing on my holiday wishlist is that because I feel overwhelmed by the stress of enforced gift-buying within a tight time-frame, I want to find one perfect thing that's easy to wrap, and that I can buy multiples of, and give to everyone on my list?!

I think nice hand soaps, decent bottles of wines & tea towels all make fun grown-up women gifts :-).

I have been combing through Big Salad and Cup of Jo because I swear one of the women profiled recommended a cute tote-like bag that she uses as a gift bag for gifts. She had an inexpensive option but there was a second option linked that was around $45 and came in a bunch of fun designs. The handles were cut-outs in the side of the bag. If anyone can link the post again so I can find this bag, I would really appreciate appreciate it!

Is it problematic that I’m just sitting here contemplating Pandora’s suggestions of ceramic fruit and terracotta pomegranates for myself?

Then are gems. I was thinking about personalised holiday gifts and this just hit the nail 🥰

I really, really love these recommendations and I always look forward to the annual gift guides. At the same time, I was a little bit bummed to find that there are still affiliate and commission links on Big Salad (totally understand why that’s necessary for cup of jo!). I would happily pay a bit more to receive content that is commission free and only your 100% best recommendations. Thanks for considering 💛

This is such a fantastic list. (Why is it that every time I see gifts I might want for myself they are for children?)
