The gift giving season is here and I am kicking it off with the mother of all gift guide posts — a one stop shop for everyone on your list with Bloomingdale’s. (Including you. And by you, I also mean me because I would take one of everything listed here today.) I have literally searched through their entire website for HOURS the past few weeks gathering the best holiday gifts to give (and get, wink wink.)
Canada Goose Down Jacket / Google Chromecast / Canada Goose Beanie / Rails Plaid Shirt / Bloomingdales Plaid Scarf / Gucci Loafers / Beats Wireless Powerbeats / Vineyard Vines Fleece / John Varvatos Hoodie / Alo Moto Joggers / Ugg Scuff Slippers / Adidas Stan Smiths / Nike Air Zoom Pegasus / Herschel Supply Dopp Kit / Sonos One Speaker / Kiehl’s Essential Skin Care Set / Native Union Wireless Charger / Ember Travel Mug / Fitbit Versa Lite Watch
Over the many years that I’ve been making gift guides, I tried to keep EVERYONE in mind. But then I realized that the net is cast too wide and I am best at gift giving to those I know and love instead of trying to please every person’s niche preferences. So with this Men’s guides I kept the man I know the most in mind when picking gifts for my husband. (What if I would have named another male? LOL. The drama.) B has really great taste in items and I put this together and showed him and drum roll please…he said he loved everything on this list! Mission accomplished. (And then I told him to pick ONE thing. We’re not billionaires, Bryan.)
Just a few gifts to note:
Bryan has this pair of Ugg slippers from a Christmas past and let me tell you — he loves them. He would never admit to this but I see him slipping them on most winter nights. Also, Ugg anything lasts FOREVER. These slippers work for ANY guy in your life from boyfriend to you grandpa! Just don’t’ tell your boyfriend that you got him and your papa the same gift.
In the tech department, we are all about streaming everything over here. So a new Chromecast would be a perfect gift because you can take it with you this holiday (if you are traveling!) or just to have at your house! Chromecasts are small, out of the way and work perfectly. A great stocking stuffer too! This wireless charger is high on the list this year — not having to deal with a wad of cords is a wonderful thing.
We love our Sonos speakers (we have this one!) — we used them at work and home! And I can’t ignore this amazing Ember temperature controlled travel mug! I am dying to get one of these — have you seen them? They are perfect for all-day coffee sippers like me. I can nurse a cup of coffee all day long, so keeping it at the same warm temperature all day is perfect! Find this travel mug here.
This Rails plaid top is perfect for any guy, plus how cute would it be with this Vineyard Vine fleece pullover? Hashtag outfit! A Canada Goose jacket would be the ultimate gift — you could get way with saying this is a Christmas, birthday and anniversary gift honestly. That is the gift that keeps on giving.
If your guy is a gym-lover, this pair of Alo workout pants looks so nice to wear in the winter months. Or this Fitbit watch is begging to keep count of your guys every move. Just like you do. 😉 This lovely hoodie is the perfect gift — trust me. I don’t know a guy that doesn’t love a classic hoodie.
In the beauty department, a Dopp kit is the perfect companion for the guy who travels or who just likes to keep all of his toiletries in one place. This is the one Bryan has and loves — he also uses it when we travel! Kiehl’s is simply the best when it comes to men’s skincare and this set is the perfect starter pack for any guy looking to upgrade his skin care routine!
Babies & Kid’s Gifts
Nike Color-Block Hoodie / Ugg Star Suede Boots / Adidas Stan Smith Sneakers / Melissa & Doug Double Sided Easel / Kid Made Gem Crayons / Jellycat Plush Sloth / Sovereign Code Polka Dot Sweatshirt / Bloomie’s Cashmere Hat / Hatley Dino Pajama Set / Isaac Mizrahi Sesame Street Backpack / Sovereign Code Sherpa Jacket / Hunter Rain Boots / Isaac Mizrahi Cookie Monster Hat / FAO Schwarz Piano Dance Mat / The North Face Denali Jacket / Stokke JetKids Bedbox / Jellycat Plush Leffy Elf / Aden and Anais Poppy Pajama Set / Melissa & Doug Veterinarian Play Set
Bloomingdale’s has a great selection of kids clothing but also toys! Let’s be real — that’s what the kids want these days and who can blame them? You can find all of Bloomingdale’s toy selection here!
At our house we love Jellycat stuffed animals (they are SO soft) and this sloth is just calling Gemma’s name. She calls them ‘SLOCK’ and I hope that never changes. There is also this little Elf who comes with a story (don’t we all)! Gemma loves this veterinary set — we got it last Christmas and she has played and played and played with this set. Great for any animal loving kid! Or this art easel is just adorable. What kid isn’t a budding artist right?
For the boys, this Nike track jacket is just as cool as you can get or this classic North Face jacket will get you through the cold days on the playground. For the little ladies, look at this teddy jacket. I DIED when we got it in for Gemma.
I have to point out this super cool travel companion I found while searching for gifts — The Stokke Jetsetter. Your kid can ride on it through the airport, then it helps create a bed for them in the airplane seat while they can still be buckled in. You’ll just have to see it to understand but if you are traveling family, this would be a great thing to have!

If you look at this graphic and think ‘Kendi made here own wishlist and said this was gifts for women’ — you wouldn’t be wrong. I basically would take one of each please! So let’s break down ALLLL the things I want for Christmas.
You can just never go wrong with giving a nice, new and so-soft robe. I don’t know anyone that would be like ‘oh no thanks I love standing naked in a cold winter bathroom instead of wrapping myself in a blanket towel.’ This one looks luxe and I love the shorter length! Speaking of luxe, this slip silk pillow case and eye mask is taking luxury to the next level. I’m getting sleepy just looking at that fancy set.
In the beauty department, this T3 straightener is literally the best out there. Plus I love that it’s rose gold. That has nothing to do with the fact that it’s single pass and won’t burn your hair up, but darn it’s pretty. I’ve been wanting to try one of these Foreo facial cleansers and this mini size feels like the right place to start! And for a stocking stuffer to myself, I’d love to try this cult-classic conditioner that is supposedly life changing to your hair! Find it here. Add on a fun mask and you’ve got yourself a really thoughtful gift! (Also, masks as stocking stuffers for friends is the ultimate idea!)
What would a gift guide be without a pair of Spanx leggings? If you don’t have this on your shopping list for you or someone else — I don’t want to be dramatic but — Christmas WILL be cancelled. They are necessary as a gift to yourself or you bestie. I’m telling you, you can not go wrong. (I suggest a size up!) This super luxe cashmere sweater is one for the ages, it’s classic and will be a timeless gift to give. Or how about this DARLING heart sweater? I mean, that is the cutest thing I’ve seen since that Cookie Monster hat up above.
Accessories are always a good idea. This AllSaints hat is a great gift or stocking stuffer! It comes in all of the colors and the fit is spot on for this winter. Your eyes aren’t fooling you — those are two watches BUT one is a Garmin watch (my favorite) and the other is a Rebecca Minkoff gold Apple Watch band. How pretty is that?? #fancy. Speaking of fancy, these Gucci earrings can take all of my pretend money and same with this Gucci crossbody. I’ve got my fingers crossed it’s a Gucci Christmas you know? 😉
I love love Alo leggings and this pair of charcoal yoga leggings would be perfect in my workout wardrobe. And by workout wardrobe, I mean what I wear when I drive by the gym on the way to Target. I also love this pair of Nikes — what a darling shade of pink! This Alo Yoga pullover is also a lovely companion to have this winter!
Last but not least, this wireless charger is so beautiful I thought it was a piece of jewelry!
Oh and that party dress is just because I love it and I would be really excited to open it on Christmas and wear it all day and then on New Year’s Eve. I am 100% using this post as my hint megaphone to my own family and friends.
Gifts For Home
Printworks Photo Album / Le Creuset Marble Dutch Oven / Kikkerland Copper Head Massager / Longchamp Large Travel Bag / Natori Sherpa Caftan / Jonathan Adler Coaster Set / Courant Leather Wireless Charging Pad / Bodum Chambord Coffee Maker / Stadler Form Aroma Diffuser / Anthropologie Home Candle / KitchenAid Mixer / Üllo Wine Purifier / BluZen Weighted Blanket / Orrefors Resuable Straws / Shiffa Jade Roller / Hudson Park Collection Faux Fur Throw / Ember Temperature Controlled Mug / FashionIt Glo Lens Light / Ugg Fur Slide Slippers / Calpak Packing Cube Set
Let’s just start with my dream list for my kitchen, shall we? This KitchenAid Mixer in matte black is literally all of my dreams coming true. (did you know I love to bake? Fun fact!) And then let’s just move on down the list to this MARBLE Le Crueset Dutch Oven. I died when I saw it and then came back to life when I looked at it again. I don’t even know how to use a Dutch Oven but I would figure it out for that beauty.
You know my love for coffee is strong right? Well here is the non-travel version of the Ember mug. It’s the temperature controlled mug again and for an all-day sipper this is the perfect companion. Also, look at this copper french press — absolutely gorgeous. If you are an iced coffee drinker, how fancy are these gold reusable metal straws? The fanciest!
If you’ve got a traveler on your friends / family list, this Longchamp weekender bag is a CLASSIC and will last for years. I love this beige color but there are many colors here! These rose gold packing cubes are just about the cutest and most functional thing ever. And this weighted blanket is on the top of my list this year — I’ve been wanting to try a weighted blanket this fall and I love this neutral color and great price! I also love this wireless charging valet — you can just toss your phone on it and in the morning you are all charged up! No wires, no mess! Now if only it would take your makeup off for you too.
I am torn between if I’m a robe lady or a caftan lady and the more I look at this caftan, I think I may be the latter. I could just imagine myself sitting around my house drinking my temperate controlled coffee and smelling my essential oils from this modern aroma diffuser while just staring at that marble Dutch oven, wondering what to do with it in my super soft and slightly ridiculous Ugg slippers. That’s the life I want to live.
In the beauty department, this jade roller has always been on my Christmas list! Maybe this year is my year! I also love this scalp massager — what a great stocking stuffer or white elephant gift idea! A few other mentionable — this wine purifier looks legitimate and I love that it just fits over the wine glass perfectly! This candle is my favorite from Anthropologie and you can buy it at Bloomingdales now! And I can’t forget how lovely this coffee table photo book looks — this would be perfect for any loved one who would be surprised by a few printed out memories in this pretty book.
