I may not be Oprah, but I sure do have a list of favorite things. Since my life includes plenty of travel, you can expect the same from this list, although there's a little something on here for just about everyone. And as always, most of these goodies are thoughtfully sourced so you can feel good about giving (or getting) them this season.
1. Lula's Garden Holiday Succulent $25 +
For the frequent traveler who wants a little low-maintenance plant life. Eco-friendly manufacturing, delivery & packaging too.
2. Kris Nations Karma Earrings $38
Because what goes around, comes around.
3. Sezane Farrow Bag $280
For the Francophile with style.
4. Komo Compact Travel Adapter $79
For your brother who’s always buying them at the airport.
For the very pretty pirate... Sustainably sourced from India, handcrafted in NYC.
6. Quip Electronic Toothbrush $25-$45
For your roommate/boyfriend with the ugly electric toothbrush you’re tired of sharing sink space with. Bonus: fits into a travel case & functions on batteries. Boom.
7. Sezane "80"s T $55
For...the child of the 80's (also available in other decades)
8. Snowe Bathrobe $98
For your dude who gets real excited about that hotel robe life.
For that friend who's "so over Diptique". Like Diptique, Byredo and other popular brands, these French-made beauties use a small amount of paraffin (not my fave) along with vegetable wax to ensure the fragrance binds and burns evenly. Maybe not the 100% cleanest but... it's kinda worth it for the way the scent carries.
For the girl who loves a good party as much as a great Soul Cycle class.
11. Crowe Collective Sweats $108
Cozy enough for the airplane, cool enough not to be embarrassed in public. Because even dudes wanna be comfy on Christmas.
For the girl who sleeps through Christmas morning, or has to take a redeye flight to get there.
13. Eva NYC Mini Blow Dryer $48
Because good hair days don’t take a vacay.
14. Kyi Kyi Pom Pom Beanie $85
For the Instagram junkie ski bunny. Cutie-full, cruelty-free fur.
Because why shouldn’t your toiletries travel cozy too?
For the woo-woo woman who believes that jewelry can carry good vibes. Crafted locally in Los Angeles with great intentions.
17. En Route Passport Cover $26
Because she’s always en route somewhere...
18. AWAY Kids Carry-On Suitcase $195
For your tag-along little one.
