I’m excited to kick off my 2019 gift guides with a long list of ideas for the ladies in your life! I’m keeping things simple this year and sharing all my best gift ideas in fewer, longer posts that you can bookmark and refer back to once the cyber week sales start next week. I hope this is helpful! I scoured all my go-to retailers and racked my brain for the items that I love most and think would make fabulous gifts for any number of recipients. I incorporated a wide variety of price points, but definitely keep in mind that the vast majority of these items can also be purchased with a promo code over the coming weeks. Whether you’re shopping for your mom, your grandmother, your mother-in-law, your sister, your best friend, or putting together a little list for yourself, I hope you find something you love!

P.S. I’ll be sharing a similar round-up of gifts for the men in your life as well as a list of experiential gift ideas. Stay tuned!

Halogen crewneck cashmere sweater, $98

Hands down the best affordable cashmere sweaters — and who doesn’t love a cashmere sweater? Also recommend this similar style if you’re looking for more colors!

J.Crew pajama set, $98

I love these pajamas so much I gave them to my bridesmaids to wear the morning of our wedding! J.Crew Factory makes a great lookalike pair for only $52.

Slip silk eye mask, $50

I sleep with an eye mask every night and this one is my all-time favorite. It’s the kind of thing you wouldn’t think to buy for yourself but would be thrilled to receive!

Etsy monogrammed notepad, $25

A no-brainer for the monogram lover in your life.

Pottery Barn faux sheepskin throw, $119

My mom first gave me this blanket probably ten years ago and it instantly became a family obsession. Now each of us owns at least one! It doesn’t get comfier or cozier than this.

J.Crew velvet smoking slippers, $188

I never tire of a classic smoking slipper and this playful bright pink velvet pair would be extra fun to unwrap.

Diptyque Baies candle, $65

I dare you to find someone who doesn’t love this scent! And pretty packaging to boot.

Tuckernuck waffle cosmetic bag, $22

Practical and personalized at an unbeatable price.

A chic addition to any Christmas tree. These sell out every year!

Buy matching ones for you and your bestie!

J.Crew cocoon coat, $365

My go-to winter coat. I had a navy version for years but last year I bought this pretty tan color which you can see in this post. J.Crew Factory sells their own version for almost $200 less!

August Morgan overserved cocktail napkins, $40

The best thing on our bar cart and one of my go-to hostess gifts.

One of my best Amazon purchases (see more of them here) and a practical gift for anyone who hates doing her own hair. You can see it in action here!

J.Crew over-the-knee boots, $325

A stylish staple in brown suede. Wait for a promo code to score them at a steep discount!

Ralph Lauren monogrammed oxford shirt, $115

These knit oxford shirts are my all-time favorite button-downs, but did you know you can add a monogram for an extra special touch? I’m obsessed!

Stubbs & Wootton bespoke slippers, $650

An investment pair of shoes you can customize to your recipient’s liking. My bespoke Nantucket lighthouse pair is my favorite! You can use code DESIGN DARLING for 20% off any full-price order.

This all-natural mask delivers an instant glow that’s worth every penny.

Serena & Lily throw pillow, $138

How gorgeous are these custom beaded clutches? They’d make a thoughtful gift for your bff or a bride-to-be!

Amazon beach cruiser, $175

How fun would it be to see this bicycle under the Christmas tree? Will gave me a hot pink bike for our first Valentine’s Day together and it remains one of my favorite gifts to this day.

APL sneakers, $165

I was convinced to buy these after so many of my friends and readers raved about them. They’re super comfortable and come in the best colors — I went with this pair!

The Home Edit by Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, $14

I love following these ladies on Instagram and their book is a must-have for anyone with a goal to get organized in the new year.

Talbots suede bow mules, $139

I wore the plaid version of these to an event in the city last week and now I have my heart set on the black suede pair as well. I think they look much pricier than they are!

Etsy applique monogram hand towel, $32

I’ve had these bookmarked for once we complete our powder room renovation next year, but they’d make a darling gift for a new homeowner too!



Hydro Flask water bottle, $44

This water bottle has been a lifesaver for feeding Teddy in the middle of the night and it’d make a great gift for any fitness fanatics on your list. It holds 32 ounces, keeps water cold for up to 24 hours (!), and has a straw cap that prevents spills and can be opened one-handed.

Beautycounter Counter+ set, $89

Who doesn’t love the gift of self-care? This set has a $130 value and includes two of my current favorite skincare products, the overnight resurfacing peel and the charcoal mask.

Cuyana zip wallet, $125

I’m thinking it’s time to upgrade my mom’s wallet and I’ve had and loved this pebbled leather wallet for several years now.

Gray Malin: Italy, $26

Everyone loves a beautiful coffee table book and this one is definitely worthy of display.

Dudley Stephens turtleneck, $158

If you’re not familiar with Dudley Stephens, you’re majorly missing out. I wear their Park Slope style with everything from jeans to workout leggings and it’s the most flattering turtleneck I’ve ever owned. The high neck is flattering for all ages and their super soft fleece has repurposed more than 1 million plastic water bottles! Lots more colors here.

Nordstrom imitation pearl studs, $39

No classic wardrobe is complete without a pair of pearl studs. This real pair would make a lovely gift if you’re looking to splurge!



Cuyana leather travel case set, $120

I haven’t taken a trip without these since I got them years ago. Love the subtle gold monogram!

A dreamy gift for anyone with a big trip on the horizon. Will gave me the navy version years ago and it’s been everywhere with us!

LL Bean boots, $159

I wouldn’t survive winter in New England without them. I have the 8″ pair with Thinsulate insulation but I’m eyeing the shearling-lined pair for extra warmth.

Pottery Barn picture frame, $29

When in doubt, I often fall back on gifting framed photos. Most people rarely take the time to print their own photos nowadays which makes it a new frame all the more special!

Serena & Lily side cart, $448

We use this cart as a side table in our family room (you can see it in our last place here), but it’s a versatile piece that anyone on a decorating kick will be happy to find a home for. It’s a bit of a splurge but stay tuned for a big Serena & Lily sale next week!

Mark & Graham striped pouch, $85

A pretty pop of color great for girlfriends or cousins. I have the navy but I also love the hot pink!

Amazon ice roller, $11

A cheap thrill that every woman should have in her freezer. I love mine for mornings when I can tell I was grinding my teeth the night before, but they’re also great for depuffing and hangover relief.

J.Crew moccasin slippers, $59

I’ve been practically living in these since I gave birth. The shearling lining is insanely cozy, plus they have a rubber sole so I can let Rory out in them. I just realized J.Crew Factory sells a nearly identical pair for $39!

Nordstrom diamond studs, $575

For anyone who’s been extra nice this year, it doesn’t get more timeless than a pair of diamond studs.

Saint James striped sailor shirt, $79

The best striped shirts available in a variety of different colors (I own all four, oops!). A forever classic that my Grandy and I both swear by.

The Daily Edited shadow text phone case, $60

I get so many questions about my iPhone case and it’s the shadow text option from The Daily Edited. Such a good gift for girlfriends!

Mark & Graham marble cheese board, $39

A personalized gift for anyone who loves to entertain.

Tretorn sneakers, $75

I love my Tretorn sneakers and both my mom and my mother-in-law have commented that they wore the exact same pair at my age. Wouldn’t it be fun to surprise them with a pair?

Amazon fabric shaver, $8

Every household needs at least one. This $8 purchase is key to keeping your sweaters (and everything from workout pants to throw blankets) looking brand new — see my before and after here. Perfect as a stocking stuffer or yankee swap gift!

LL Bean boat and tote, $29 + $8 monogram

You can never have too many canvas bags. We use the medium size for a diaper bag, the large for a beach bag, and the extra-large for weekend trips.


Tod’s driving loafers, $495

A pair of Tod’s loafers has been on my wishlist forever, and this pale blue color is calling my name.

Ralph Lauren custom cashmere crewneck, $298

A gift that will have everyone asking, “where’d you get that?” The customization options are endless.

Williams-Sonoma Home coral frame, $70

We have the mirror version of this frame above the dresser in our bedroom and it’s the perfect accent for anyone who loves the beach.

Mark & Graham monogrammed robe, $89

I’m taking it as a sign that this has my married initials on it… 🙂

Pamela Munson pearl clutch, $325

I have a wicker bag obsession and Pamela Munson makes some of my favorites. How darling is this pearl clutch?

Hunter rain boots, $150

A gift she’ll wear for decades. I own this pair but I’m intrigued by the packable version!

  1. Bravo and thank you! What a great list and thrilled you have Gary Janetti’s book on your list – I have followed him and Brad since he did a flash mob for their anniversary- treat yourself to that on YouTube if you haven’t already seen it! https://youtu.be/LFVG2ZAiurw And then… Gary made me think of podcasts (Brad’s new one) – do you listen to podcasts? A Friday Q or maybe in archives?
