It is just blowing my mind that we are already here, talking the Holiday Gift Guide! Can you believe it? This year, I have a ton of foodie and home suggestions, as well as a few general cool lifestyle gifts. You’re bound to find something you can’t wait to gift!
So let’s start with “gifts for a kitchen junkie” …
Definitely consider gifting this ADORABLE pie calendar! It’s a 2017 calendar filled with pie! And if you’re feeling bored, color in the rest of the drawings! How fun is that?!
Love coloring and food? Clearly. You need A Cozy Coloring Book. Just don’t forget to gift colored pencils too.
Some of my favorite things are definitely unconventional. Like, a mini KitchenAid mixer (mini!), a Pie Box with the carrying strap (please put a pie in it and hand deliver) and then almost anything from the Food52 website.
From Food52, I love this cake stand, this cake stand, this walnut pie server (I can’t believe I don’t own a pie server) and this enamel Turkish coffee pot. BTW they sell a cookie box, like the pie box but for cookies!
I LOVE shopping local and supporting small businesses. I highly recommend you pop into a local boutique and buy some locally made mugs (paired with a hot cocoa kit or bag of local coffee beans for a complete gift) because I’ve never met someone who didn’t love beautiful pottery. Some potters I love are Paper and Clay, Calyer Ceramics and Box Sparrow. And my friend Jacki’s pottery, but she doesn’t sell hers (holla!).
I love a few small artists for prints you can frame and two of them are: May We Fly Designs (out of Northwest Arkansas, where we are from) and Signet Sealed (out of Memphis). I’d seriously take any and ALL of May We Fly’s winter prints and I want a city drawing of every city I’ve lived in from Signet Sealed! What a fun, personal gift that would be. Don’t even buy frames (because that’s all up to personal home décor taste), just wrap the prints nicely in tissue.
DISCOUNT: For 20% off your Signet Sealed order, enter TREATSTWIST at checkout!
HINT: If you’re looking for a deal, check the artists’ Instagram pages and social media, just in case they have a sale around Thanksgiving.
Ok, this is my favorite category. If I could pick a favorite. Here’s why: people love making memories, they don’t love clutter. Plain and simple. The gifts I’d choose to receive are the same ones that are great to gift and they are: zoo or aquarium memberships, museum memberships, local art studio class passes, yoga class passes, gym memberships paid for (I do a Stroller Strides class with my babe and if someone paid for that it’d be amazing!), coffee gift cards, a NICE restaurant gift card, sporting tickets, massage/spa packages, food delivery, wine tasting, a date night…see where I’m going with all of this?
Basically, think of what sounds fun to you, what sounds indulgent to you, what would you love to do for yourself but really only if someone else paid for it, what does your friend desperately need to experience at this point in their life? Now buy something that makes that possible.
Look up your recepient’s address and the nearest experiences to them (arenas, their gym classes, nice restaurants, zoos/museums if they are into it) and go from there.
That’s all! I hope you found something you love in this! Let me know what you order!!

Items I own in this list: the three cookbooks mentioned and the pie calendar and a mini KitchenAid mixer. All others are things I’ve been lusting over and would recommend as a gift!
