The best gifts are thoughtful ones that reflect someone’s interests. That’s why I created a bunch of gift guides broken down by category–so if you have someone in your life who loves coffee, there’s a gift for them. And there’s a bunch of cozy gift ideas for the homebody who loves a good night in. And for the home chef, for the book lover, and even the one who has everything. I also gave you ideas for your parents, grandparents, and family gift ideas on this post. And to cover all your bases, I made sure you have host/hostess gift ideas and gave you plenty of options for the teachers in your life.
If you prefer to shop straight on LTK and don’t need the curated collages, I have an entire collection of different gift guide product lists including host gifts, teacher gifts, parent gifts, and more. You can also head straight to my LTK page to shop all of my gift ideas and latest finds. Or check out my Amazon Storefront, which has over 100 curated gift ideas.
Gifts for the Homebody
It’s me; hi, I’m the homebody, it’s me. I have and love so many of these items! Nice slippers are a must, this sweater set is cozy but chic, and I adore these cute coffee mugs. And you really can’t go wrong with a Barefoot Dreams blanket, they are SO soft.

What to Buy Your Parents and Grandparents
Hint: they love framed photos. A curated framed gallery wall idea is a great idea too! Some other successful gifts for your parents or grandparents: cookware, luggage, bed sheets, and a meal plan service.

Gifts for the Home Chef
You don’t have to be a great cook to enjoy cooking. Here are some ideas for the person who loves to cook in your life, or even just the person who likes to look like they cook. 😉 A good chef’s knife is a must, and the brass pepper mill is such a popular kitchen item right now! I personally think a recipe card box is the sweetest gift. Bonus points if you include some of your favorite recipes with it.
Gifts for Coffee Lovers
Most people love coffee, right? And most people also love gifts. Therefore most people love coffee-related gifts. This is sound logic reasoning. I am eyeing up those pretty glass mugs, and I also included my favorite coffee syrup because even though it’s kind of a random gift idea, I’d be happy if someone got it for me.

Gifts for Book Lovers
Maybe I’m patting myself on the back here, but I just love this little gift round up. Please treat the reader in your life to a nice bookmark, or even a book club membership. I own and LOVE the scent on the Book Club candle, too.

What to Bring Your Host
Truthfully, I usually just bring wine when I’m being hosted. But the holiday season always makes me a little more creative. (Like gifting a set of glasses to go with that bottle, you know?) I also love combining a cookbook and a set of serving utensils, or a cheeseboard with cheese knives. I’ve also been alllll about the simmer pots recently, so a cute one of those and a packet of holiday simmer potpouri is a great little hostess gift too.

PSA: Don’t Forget Your Teachers!
I’m always shocked when I hear teachers tell me they don’t receive gifts around the holidays. Even if it’s the smallest gift (re: a $5 bag of chocolates and a thank you card), they deserve it! I 1000% think teaching is one of the hardest gigs out there, and Robert and I have a lot of teachers in our family. So I always make sure to come up with a little something for our son’s teachers (well, really daycare/preschool instructors this year–which is JUST as deserving of a job!) Anyway, I gathered up a bunch of ideas that work for teachers, or anyone you want to give a small appreciation gift.

Gifts for the one who has EVERYTHING
This one is for those extra hard-to-buy-for people in our lives. The ones who never “need” anything, or just buy things as they need them. I think these new food storage containers are really pretty, and I’ve personally been eyeing that cashmere wrap for years. And when in doubt, buy slippers. Who doesn’t love slippers?!
