A Guide to Thoughtful Holiday Gifting

As your curator of all things luxe and timeless, I invite you to step into this enchanting holiday season where the art of giving takes center stage. It’s high time to up your gift-giving ante and embrace the festive spirit. I’ve curated a collection that defies trends and exudes the very essence of timeless style. Whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift or treating yourself to a touch of luxury, I’m certain you’ll love these finds. Read on for a holiday season filled with one-of-a-kind treasures, vintage charm, and a lots of magic.


Picture this: cozy evenings by the fireplace, clad in loungewear that’s not just cozy but also conscientious. I’m assuming you love vintage pajamas as much as I do since you’re here (hiiiii!), so I highly recommend finding a fab vintage silk pajama set that can double as loungewear and date night! My favorite brand for sustainable loungewear is Mate the Label. I have the Organic Fleece Bubble Sweatshirt and Organic Fleece Relaxed Pocket Sweatpant and LOVE the set. They are super comfy and you’ll wear for years to come (I’ve had mine for 3+ years!).

Vintage Accessories

In a sea of basic, give a gift that truly makes a statement! I love finding over-the-top accessories like silk scarves, vintage sunglasses or gaudy jewelry for my friends (and myself!). There’s something about searching for that one special piece that will delight! I personally love gifting vintage charm bracelets, puffed heart earrings, and leather gloves!

Second-hand Designer Bags

Why settle for new and ordinary when you can get fabulous? The craftsmanship, the history – each stitch and design of vintage bags is unparalleled but you already knew that! While most designer bags are an investment, you can find lower cost options from brands like Coach, Carlos Falchi, and Judith Leiber. I have found some gorgeous lucite box bags and exotic skin bags at the thrift store, so enjoy that thrill of the thrift!

Unique Housewares and Vintage Decor

They say home is where the heart is, so you better be styling it up some vintage. This is the easiest category to shop for friends (even the ones who don’t love second hand). You can find many quality pieces in thrift stores, or find many affordable designer options while scouring eBay or The Real Real. My top picks are vintage art, marble catchalls, Murano vases and novelty items like the vintage Tiffany & Co playing card set. If you’re looking to buy something new, I do love this artisanal bowl from Sezane. I bought one for a friend since she can use for serving salads or as a decorative piece.

Beauty Essentials

Nothing says “I care” like the gift of self-care, so beauty essentials are always on my list. I typically opt for my favorite clean beauty brands like Kosas, Biossance, and Merit to gift my friends the best of the best. I love Kosas, Biossance is hands down my favorite for my skin especially their Omega Repair Cream, and the Merit Beauty Glow Kit has all the beauty essentials for a quick and easy make up look.

Sustainable, vintage, and one-of-a-kind – because, my dears, nothing says “I adore you” like a thoughtfully chosen treasure. Let’s make this holiday season a celebration of style and sustainability. Explore my curated collection and bring home the magic of sustainable elegance. Happy shopping, darlings!
