Gift Guide: Jess’ Favorite Things + Gifts for Her

Nov 14, 2021

Jess Favorite Things + Gifts for Her

(Apologies, can’t link anything in this photo because it’s three years old! Maybe next year I’ll re-shoot my gift guide photos?) 


I am so excited about our very first gift guide of the season. (I hope it was worth the wait! I feel like the demand happens earlier every year!)

This is my big Oprah-style “Jess’ Favorite Things” guide featuring all of MY tried and true favorite things that would also make great gift ideas for all the women in your life! From friends to sisters to mothers, mother-in-laws, co-workers, you name it–I think you’ll find something for everyone here! Kendall and I spend hours and hours each year curating this guide that we think is the best of the best out there!

This guide (and others that come after) will not just feature items from my go-to big retailers, but also smaller shops, BPIOC and women owned businesses. (You’ll also see quite a few repeat favorites from last year, as they’re still tried and true standbys, but tons of new additions, too!) As I do every year, I really wanted to curate a selection that was original and unlike the guides you see elsewhere–I hope you love it!

Speaking of small, woman-owned businesses, a shout out my friend Katie for her amazing calligraphy skills in creating my gift guide graphics! (She also makes darling holiday cards that are linked below–make sure to check her out!)

So…without further adieu, let’s jump in! (Side note, if you see any incorrect links or glaring typos, just DM me and let me know!)
