A fun perfume set that works as a cocktail kit. The scents included are: gold, rain, mimosa, tea, magnolia, whiskey, book, moss, wool, and gin and each one is super unique. They’re meant to be mixed and matched – layered to create your own signature fragrance.

10. Rifle Paper Co. Chatbook, (starting at) $19.00

11. Pendleton Spider Rock Bath Towel, $39.50

Some of the best gifts are the ones that the receiver would love, but wouldn’t have purchased for themselves. This bath towel fits the bill perfectly. Such a cool and unexpected gift.

12. Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask, $58.00

For the beauty lover on your list. I recently discovered Tata Harper while making the switch to greener beauty products and this mask is my holy grail product. After using it, it’s literally like a new layer of skin has emerged, but it isn’t filled with nasty chemicals and doesn’t burn my sensitive skin. It’s a win/win.

13. FIG + YARROW Complexion Water, $18.50

This can be used as a toner, but it’s also just a nice refreshing boost for tired skin after a long day. Sometimes I’ll use it when I’m having a crap day just to mellow out – the smell it lovely. A nice gift to give someone so their can treat themselves to a little oomph in their day.

14. Fujifilm INSTAX SHARE SP-2 Smart Phone Printer, $195.03

The idea of instant photos is great, but sometimes it can be a disappointment when you buy expensive film and then your photos turn out dark or blurry. I got an Instax Mini a couple of years ago, but after seeing the printer they came out with I wish I’d gone for this instead. This allows you to take photos using your phone and then pick the best ones to print out mini polaroid style. Genius!

15. Seaworthy Arbas Necklace, $88.00

Seaworthy is a local Portland jewelry maker and I have quite a few of their pieces. Definitely my favorite jewelry and this necklace is on my own Christmas wish list.

16. Rose Gold Sunburst Necklace, $114.00

This Lisa Leonard necklace is simultaneously dainty and cool and it couldn’t be more perfect in of-the-moment rose gold. I love how each piece of Lisa’s jewelry tells a story and this one is no different. You can read more about this necklace here and see some of her other pieces of jewelry to choose something that truly represents your giftee.

17. Timex Weekender Rose Gold + Leather Watch, $53.96

This watch is on-trend and classic at the same time. Simple, oversized (but still delicate in its own way) and with the loveliest combination of brown leather and rose gold trim. I wear this watch ALL THE TIME. So good. Perfect for a grandma or a teenager!

18. Madewell Medium Transport Tote, $158.00

A bag that is chic and simple and can hold a lot of stuff without entertain “bag lady” territory. This one is totally on my wish list.

19. Gold Hair Pin, $49.00

An infinitely more classy way to throw up your hair than just using a plain ‘ol hair tie. Instant sophistication.

20. “Mom” Lapel Pin, $9.00

A gift for the mom in your life, so she can wear her title proudly.

21. Sudio Sweden Vasa Bla Wireless Earbuds, $110.00

Who knew ear buds could be utilitarian and pretty? These are wireless, and powered by bluetooth, so whoever you get these for will be able to rock out (or, you know…listen to intellectual podcasts) unencumbered.
