The holidays are approaching, and that means we’re looking for the best gifts for our loved ones. It’s always exciting when you find something extra special, and I’ve got you covered with my 2023 Holiday Gift Guide. And who knows, you may find a few things here you’ll want to treat yourself too also. I’m here to help you beat holiday stress by sharing my favorite self-care gift ideas to bring joy and relaxation to those you care about this holiday season.
Beeks Shoes are the kind that find a forever home in your closet. Their Gallito Shearling slides are like a yummy cup of hot cocoa and are perfectly sophisticated and chic. The leather feels as soft as butter, and truly gets better with age. But what’s special about these slides is the genuine shearling lined upper to keep your feet snuggled up when the weather turns chilly. They’re great for trips and the mix of leather and shearling makes them both comfy and oh-so-stylish. They run true to size, but if you have half-size feet I’d recommend sizing down.
The Beeks female founders have a simple mission: they wanted to create footwear that is both beautiful AND comfortable. What’s even more lovely about this brand is they are partnered with the Second Harvest Food Bank to tackle childhood hunger. For each pair of Beek shoes purchased, five meals are provided to a child in the US who could use some extra help.

Viski wine glasses have an elegant and stylish design, making them suitable for casual and formal occasions.
They add a splash of sophistication to any gathering and are a thoughtful gift for a wine enthusiast or to add a touch of sophistication to your own wine experience.
If you love travel as much as I do, reliable and stylish luggage is a MUST for my 2023 Holiday Gift Guide. Quince Carry-On Hard Shell Suitcase – 21″ and Check-In Hard Shell Suitcase – 24″ are extremely lightweight, durable and they roll like a dream on carpet and hard surfaces.
There are loads of compartments inside, and Quince luggage also features spinner wheels, a TSA-approved combination lock, a removable laundry bag, and an interior compression system. Quince hardshell luggage has a sleek and modern design that is perfect for the minimalist traveler. The luggage comes in a variety of colors allowing you to choose a color that suits your style.
Gorgeous bath towels are a simple way to make everyday routines feel more luxurious and enjoyable. Cozy Earth Premium Plush bath towels are elegant and make a stunning holiday gift because they’re incredibly soft, highly absorbent, and add a touch of luxury to any bathroom.
These towels are amazing! They are very thick, heavy and soft to the skin, and did I mention how absorbent and luxurious they feel? They come in plenty of colors, and I personally love the modern look of the light grey. If you prefer more of a spa-like look in your bathroom, then the Cozy Earth Waffle Bath Towels are the ones for you.
These towels have a simple waffle design on one side and a soft plush interior, feeling super absorbent and luxurious. I went with simple light grey, but they also come in charcoal and white. Cozy Earth towels wash beautifully and I love the cozy feeling when I wrap myself in these towels after bathing.
