From holiday gifts to housewarming gifts to hostess gifts, we’ve curated a list of our favorites for 2022!

My dearly departed grandmother was an amazing cook. So when I gave my dad a beautifully preserved replica of one of her recipes – in her own handwriting – he was moved to tears. This unique maple or cherry wood cutting board showcases the ingredients and instructions for one meaningful dish. Just submit a scanned image of your recipe card, and the exact directions are etched in your loved one’s handwriting! It’s a sentimental gift for your favorite cook, a child moving out for the first time, or a foodie friend. Made in Vermont.
The pachira, or money tree, is one of the most popular plants used in Feng Shui design. Said to bring good luck and fortune, this ultra low-maintenance tropical indoor plant helps to purify the air and thrives best in sunny spaces. Makes a fantastic housewarming gift or hostess gift for holiday parties!
Beekman 1802 Ylang Ylang & Tuberose Body Care Caddy Set
Holiday gifting is the perfect excuse to indulge in luxury body products for the bathroom! This set from Beekman 1802 comes features farm-fresh moisturizing soap and lotion. The mineral-rich goat milk formula reveals your natural, glowing complexion and has a gorgeous floral fragrance.
Looking for a unique, personalized gift you can be sure they don’t already have? Order a batch of these delicious, buttery shortbread cookies. You can even customize them with a sweet message that lets them know you care. Made with simple, natural ingredients – they are sooo yummy!
Know someone who loves to cook? Or perhaps you’re married to a super picky retired chef (like I am) who prefers to pick out his own kitchenware? Give a gift that every cook would love to find in their inbox. Sur La Table e-gift cards are just as flexible as their standard gift cards and make the perfect last-minute presents.
We are absolutely in love with this weighted blanket from Quility. High-quality, ultra-durable, and extra soft, it helps relieve stress and promotes a better night’s sleep. This one feels like a gentle full-body hug that keeps you cozy all night long!
Looking for a unisex gift that’s fun and unique? This quirky, adorable set of bike bookends is a perfect way to add style and class to a room while keeping books and magazines organized. Vintage inspired and designed with black rubber stoppers at the base that prevent scratching furniture and table tops, as well as sliding around.
Ah, nostalgia. Give yourself a double dose of fun with this grown-up, just-for-you version of one of childhood’s greatest gadgets: the reel viewer. Assemble snapshots of your favorite memories and add them to your very own reel using the redemption code included with your viewer. Once you receive your made-to-order reel, pop it in the viewer and marvel at baby’s first steps or your favorite beach at sunset, or… well, whatever else you want to be immortalized. Remember: You’re the view master now. Made in Oregon.
