Bobbi's Holiday Gift Guide 2020
Written by: Bobbi
My favorite gifts to give (and get) this holiday season. You'll find something for everyone on your list...
For the hair care obsessive, Crown Affair’s Holiday Kit includes handmade combs, a silk scrunchie and hydrating hair oil tucked inside of a limited-edition pouch. The combs are so pretty, they’ll want to put them on display.
The Holiday Kit, $98
My good friend, the late Chef Floyd Cardoz, started working on this collection of Masalas in 2019. After his passing, Barkha Cardoz (his wife and partner) helped to make this collaboration with Burlap & Barrel a reality. An essential for any home cook and a beautiful way to honor to a great chef.
I’ve been stocking up on these colorful and creative masks from IXV Coffee, a local coffee shop in Brooklyn. They’re made with reclaimed fabric and include a filter pocket. A must for everyone on your list.
Reusable Face Mask, $25
Give the gift of good habits. Madefor is all about using the “principles of modern neuroscience, psychology and physiology to make your brain and body better.” This intro kit features their 21-day hydration challenge, making it a gift that doubles as a New Year's resolution.
Madefor Intro Kit, $48
Augustinus Bader has become my go-to for deep hydration. This set includes the Rich Cream (it’s changed my skin) and the Body Cream. It’s a luxe gift, but well worth it.
The Tandem Set, $385
My go-tos for gorgeous skin, shiny hair, and overall glow. This gift set includes Energizing Chocolate (the best protein powder), Beauty Collagen (for hair, skin and nails), Debloat Tea (for when you need to hit reset), and Beauty Probiotics (to nourish your gut).
I consider these a WFH essential. These shearling-lined Birkenstocks look cool while keeping feet cozy. Gift these instead of slipppers.
Everyone needs a good SPF in their life and Supergoop! is my go-to. The new Cloud 9 Balm is great for super dry winter skin. Plus, it’s SPF 40.
Really good olive oil that looks really good in your kitchen. Get this Mini Essentials set from Brightland for the foodie in your life.
The Mini Essentials, $70
This tote from Kule really says it all. A good gift for someone who always has their hands full.
OY VEY Tote, $188
For the New Yorkers (and lovers of NYC) on your list, this new “encyclopedia” from the editors of New York Magazine covers everything.
Inspired by Ayurveda, this serum is made with pure CBD oil and a signature blend of Vitabotanicals to give skin a natural glow. It's a good gift for someone looking to balance and brighten skin.
I always love gifting food and these sausages are on this year’s list. Founded by fourth-generation butcher Cara Nicoletti, they combine humanely raised meat with fresh veggies.
This clay dinnerwear from Jono Pandolfi makes for a truly beautiful tablescape and makes a great host gift. This tan set is available exclusively at Food52.
Food52 by Jono Pandolfi Dinnerwear, starting at $34
We put together this box as the ultimate holiday beauty gift. You’ll get one of everything, plus our signature Jones Road oversized sweatshirt.
The Everything Box, $500
