Gift Guide No. Two: My Everyday Favorites

A guide of my absolutely favorite, and most beloved items perfect for gifting
Filed Under > Everyday


When pondering what themed gift guides to do this year I thought, why not round up everything I love and use on a daily/weekly basis that would also make great gifts.  So that’s what we’re doing for Guide No. Two.  My very own Oprah-esq favorite things.  I’d love to know in the comments, if you were creating your own list of favorite things what would make the cut? Truly, MKR

One. Happy Menocal Mr. Charles Stationery.  I’m a HUGE fan of Happy Menocal; have been forever.  So when she launched her collection on Paperless post a few years ago I was besides myself giddy.  Of course Mr. Charles was my obvious choice as he looks so much like my Addy, but I also snagged this every day set and have used this holiday card more than once.

Two. C.O. Bigelow Cold & Flu Soak. I buy this in bulk because it sells out every year right when you need it.  I swear if you feel like you’re getting sick, or have gotten sick soak in this for 30 minutes and you’ll feel so much better.  And I’m serious, buy more than one bottle as it sells out every year.

Three. Herbivore Orchid Facial Oil.  Cult status with this oil; and yes I’ve drank the koolaid.  The oil is uber moisturizing, but my skin just glows whenever I use it.  My very own fountain of youth.

Four. Breville Tea Kettle.  This is my most used appliance next to my coffee pot.  It makes making tea, cider, hot cocoa, matcha, anything and everything you need boiling water for so easy. I actually have my kettle upstairs in my bedroom as I drink tea the most at night and I couldn’t imagine my evening routine without it.  This would also be great to have in a guest room if possible.  

Five. Great Lakes Co. Sweatshirt.  I’m a BIG fan of sweatshirts.  It’s the Michigan in me.  So when I found a small business named after my beloved Great Lakes and they just happen to make the coziest sweatshirt ever I couldn’t press buy fast enough.  And it has not disappointed.  It really is beyond soft.  I actually asked for a second one for Christmas so I can rotate them while ones being washed. 

Six. Singing Bowl. I cannot get enough of singing bowls, sage, palo santo, and anything that helps rid all that bad juju. And even if you don’t buy into the “spiritual” side of it there’s something very relaxing about the ritual of it all.  Don’t know it till you try it.

Seven. Illuminated Bible.  An gorgeous, illustrated bible that invites you to write and doodle all over it.  Game changer for my morning quiet time routine.  It comes in a hardback version, but if you’re going to use this as your everyday bible I suggest the classic leather as it will wear much better over time.

Eight. Teleties. The hairband that has caused a frenzy at WOMH.  Seriously, we cannot keep these in stock.  And I understand why.  They do not rip your hair, they actually work, plus they look like a bracelet on your hand.  Seriously, try them if you haven’t.  And if you’ve tried another brand in the past they’re not comparable to these which are SO much better!

Nine. Truffle Mustard.  I mean mustards mustard right? Wrong.  This mustard is beyond.  I keep it in my fridge and dip pretzels in it, always put it on a cheese plate, and constantly cook with it.  I brushed it over chicken and last night combined it with spices, herbs, and vegetable broth for a pork tenderloin roast.  Wow, just wow!

Ten. The Five Minute Journal. If you do anything for yourself next year do this.  I mean it.  Only five minutes in the morning and five minutes in the evening and I promise your life will be changed.  Promise.

Eleven. Young Living Essential Oils.  I won’t get on my soapbox again about YL Essential Oils, but seriously if you haven’t taken the plunge yet with the starter pack I really don’t know what you’re waiting for.  I use YL Essential Oils for everything.  Diffusing, cleaning, beauty, health, healing…everything.  Read a bit more about it here and join the WOM/Well Code oily life! You’ll be glad you did.

Twelve. Peloton.  This was my birthday gift from the hubs and I couldn’t love it more.  It’s the one workout I seem to be able to stick with and is worth every penny.

Thirteen. Sleep Mask. Another can’t sleep without it necessity.

Fourteen. RMS Luminizer Quad.  RMS is one of my favorite non-toxic beauty brands and this luminizer quad is definitely a beauty essential I use every day.

Fifteen. Ullo Wine Purifier.  I love wine.  I also get terrible headaches from too much wine which I think may have to do with sulfites as different wines effect me differently.  Anyway, that’s what led me to Ullo.  And I don’t know the science behind the magic all I know is every time I run a bottle of wine through the purifier I don’t wake up with a pounding head.  

Sixteen. Golden Goose Sneakers.  Okay, so when I first heard about sneakers that looked like they had been worn for 5+ years and carried a $500 price tag where all the rage I was like”yeah right.”  Then I bought a pair.  And they are honestly the most comfortable shoe I own.  More comfortable then my Nikes. Seriously, they are that comfortable.  Plus they really hold up and you don’t need to worry about scuffing them up…the more scuffs the better.

Seventeen. Toffee To Go Toffee.  There’s a reason this toffee is on Oprah’s list year after year.  We’re talking melt in your mouth toffee.  It’s so good all of us at WOMH ate through all the samples before we were able to sample any to customers.  Oops.

Eighteen. WelleCo. Sleep Welle Calming Tea.  I learned about this specific tea after using their Super Elixir; which is also a favorite.  It really does help you calm down and sleep sounder, plus it comes in the most gorgeous container.  If you’re like me and have trouble falling asleep then definitely give this a whirl.  

Nineteen. Goop Edition No. 2 Shisho Spray.  The description is what got me, the fact that its non-toxic helped.  “A perfume of cool air, pale sun, new life unfurling on the forest floor, this mystical perfume channels the energy of spring: sensual heat against cool, damp air.” 

Twenty.  Serena & Lily Carins Throw. I’m a BIG blanket fan. And this is my currently cozy, curl up go-to.  Plus it gorgeous!

Twenty-One. Gray Malin x Away Luggage. Y’all know I’m a HUGE fan of Gray Malin. So when he partnered with AWAY luggage to create a custom collection and one of those pieces was one of the Gray photos I own well I had to have it! Available in 3 colors and 3 different Gray prints this is the chicest and most functional luggage ever!
