Some items listed below were gifted for review purposes. I wouldn’t share if they didn’t truly earn a spot though!
‘Tis the season for the much anticipated gift guides! I usually like to wait until after Thanksgiving, to give gratitude it’s due time to shine, but there are so many great deals already happening – I just couldn’t wait to share.
I’ve had such a fun time curated all the details for this first gift guide … it’s especially for mamas! Truly, there is something for every woman, whether she’s a mama or not. Young and old too. I just speak from the depths of the mom life and I know I love and appreciate each of these items very, very much. These items are all gems and I can’t wait to hear what you love most!
Cozy Earth … Everything
I cannot sing the praises of Cozy Earth more. From their ultra soft pullovers and joggers to their luxurious sheet sets, Cozy Earth’s classic design and superior quality make their products some of the very best gifts this season. Nab a new Waffle Bath Robe for your mama or a set of their deluxe Waffle Bath Towels for your sis. Truly, anyone and everyone will love the coziness of a Cozy Earth gift.
Trtl stands for “travel refreshed, travel light” and their travel pillow is the ultimate gift for those who road trip or spent time hoppin’ from airport to airport.
Calling all plant lovers! You’re going to love Rosy! This potting mix is earth-friendly and everything your sweet plant babies need to grow big and healthy.
Hands down in love with my Rock & Ruddle Brush! Based in London, this brand features amazing brushes (in the best colors and patterns) with natural boar bristles. Those bristles help distribute your scalp’s natural oils leading to healthier, happier hair. Truly, I’ve never loved brushing my hair more. Use code GRETCHEN for special savings at Rock & Ruddle!
Can you tell I’m on a travel kick this year? These packing cubes are LEGIT! Each one has a zippered compression system to condense outfits and maximize space up to 50 percent! NOMATIC Packing Cubes are lightweight, water resistant, and strong enough for years of adventures.
Calendars are such a basic gift, but oh so useful! Everyone needs one. Workman has a plethora of amazing calendars, but you know me, it’s this Plant Lady one that I fell in love with.
My mom bought me a Walker sling for my birthday this year and it’s the best! My Walker wish list is huge now! Thankfully they’ve got a fabulous Black Friday sale happening right now – 25% off everything! If you’re new to Walker, start with a Louie Sling and I bet you’ll fall in love from there.
One, this tequila has the prettiest bottle and label. Two, consumable gifts are totally my jam. The Reposado is rich with hints of vanilla, oak, honey, and caramel … everything your festive, homemade margarita needs.
Forgive my practicality, but a quality charger is one of those gifts that gives every single day! This one is FAST and currently 25% off. Truly a gift you’ll appreciate day in and day out. I have this one and it’s coveted by all in the fam.
Fall and winter are my favorite season because I get to bring out all my hygge inducing pieces, and, my friend, Bomba is the ultimate when it comes to that. I’m a big fan of their new Gripper Slippers and cannot wait to head out on a winter hike in their merino wool tee and Cotopaxi collab hiking socks.
Three cheers for ear buds that connect easily and actively cancel noise. The fit of the Moto Buds is excellent and the price point can’t be beat. If you haven’t gone wireless yet, you must! This year I have listened to more audiobooks than ever – while doing laundry, walking, driving, even tidying the garage – all thanks to wireless listening.
I am a white noise person through and through and the LectroFan EVO Sound Machine has the best white noise. And yes, there can be bad white noise, lol! It also has ocean sounds and since the beach is my ultimate happy place you better believe I opt for that sound more often than not!
I’ve been searching for fresh dinnerware since our last move – something classic, but not plain white, a little boho, but still timeless. I think I found it in the vancasso set! I love the beige, but the blue is growing on me quite a bit too!
You know how some gals love make-up and others are all about hair products? Well, I’m the skincare gal. I love trying new serums and scrubs and my latest find is the white truffle spray serum from d’Alba. Love love love!

If I could schedule an acupuncture appointment every week, I think I would! Such productive relaxation and a cure to many ailments (also, my favorite while pregnant!). I’m pretty sure I found the next best thing though – an at-home acupressure mat! Perhaps best of all, the Shakti Mat is made by a wonderful team of artisans in India. Use code BLACKFRIDAY to save 25% … you’ll get free shipping too!
Winter means it is time to get cozy! Available in twin, full, queen, and king the PureRelief Radiance Deluxe Heated Blanket is the best of the best when it comes to staying warm.
