A Lifestyle and Homewear Gift Guide


Welcome to another gift guide! This time around I'll be sharing a few lifestyle and homewear products that I think will make great presents this holiday season. I've been a little homewear crazy this year, as I'm slowly trying to transform my new apartment into my Interiors Pinterest board. I'm a really long way off, but I'll get there one day. I also wanted to share some liftstyle products that I think are a little more universal and less dependant on personal taste. 

Let's start things off with the biggest splurge on my list, the Canon GX7 II camera. This is one of my favourite posessions. It takes gorgeous photos and video, has a flip up viewfinder and is very compact. Great for anyone who has a passion for photography, travel or just likes to capture memories. This is actually what I use to take my Instagram photos, it's never let me down.

With vinyl having a huge resurgence over the past few years, finding a record you love has never been easier (well, not since I've been collecting vinyl, anyway). Amazon have a really great selection, there really is something for every music lover. Two of my favourites are the classic Fleetwood Mac album, Rumours and my favourite band's first release, August And Everything After by Counting Crows. I could talk about both of these albums all day long, so I'm going to cut myself off and move over to the next item.

The Daily Edited have so many beautiful products, and they all make for great gifts. I have their pale pink wallet and I love it. Being able to monogram your purchase gives it a personal touch and makes them really special. If you want to stay in the same realm, but with someone who is less of a minimalist in mind, a Mimco Pouch is hard to go wrong with. 

Cute mugs are always a good option for Secret Santas and stocking stuffers. I saw this We Slay Mug while shopping at my local market and had to pick it up for my sister. I feel like everyone has at least one Beyonce stan in their life, so there were about 12 people I could have given this to. Another cute hydration based item is the Healthish Water Bottle. I've had my eye on this one for a few months now and my boyfriend and I have decided to gift them to each other this year. 

Sunglasses are always a great option, they're a good way to show someone that you take notice of their personal style. The Quay High Keys have been a huge hit this year, they are the best for giving a little attitude to a more simple outfit. If you're after something a little more classic, you can't go wrong with these from Karen Walker.

Urban Outfitters always have really cute pieces for your home. So much so that I had to order this Mini Geo Terrarium. The one pictured in this post is from West Elm and I love it. I use it as a makeup brush holder. Another item that I own and love is the Sohum Jonquil candle. It smells divine and I only need to burn it for 20 minutes to have my apartment smelling like it for hours. 

Coffee table books are always a good bet, especially if you're looking for something for someone that has a curated IG feed. Capture Your Style is a classic blogger book at this point, it not only looks cute in pictures, but actually holds a lot of really helpful tips for Instagram. Love x Style x Life appears all over my feed, and trust me, as a blogger it's so helpful to have books that double as props.


Anthropologie have some really beautiful homewears, so much so that I'm yet to read a gift guide without at least one of their products in there. I could have chosen to be original and include something else instead, I wanted to share what I've recently ordered from them. My birthday was mid November and with the money my parents gave me I decided to pick up some things for my apartment. I ordered quite a few things (luckily my purchase cooincided with their Black Friday sale), here are the things I'm most excited about. I picked up two of their Monogram Mugs, an A for my boyfriend and a B for myself.

Their Gradient Vase looked too pretty to resist, and I can already picture it on our TV cabinet. I've seen their Slivered Geode Coasters all over Pinterest and thought they were too cute to pass up. I picked up four of the Adventurian colour. The last thing I wanted to share is the Zodiac Decorative Charm. It looks so dainty and beautiful, so I had to pick up the Scorpio charm to add to my keys.


Thanks for reading!
