This Beautiful Day’s Holiday Gift Guide 2016

portland leather goods

I’m almost done my holiday gift shopping this year and these are some of the best things I’ve come across for everybody on your list! Can you believe Christmas is less than THREE weeks away?!?

For The World Traveler

Treat him or her to one of the gorgeous personalized leather passport holders from Portland Leather Goods for a perfect holiday gift. I chose to have my name added to the front and chose from one of the many designs they have on their site.

cocktail mixers set

For The Cocktail Lover

I spotted this Cocktail Mixers Holiday Gift Trio from BG Reynolds at a local craft fair. Just add alcohol and you have a handcrafted drink created by a bartender that believes in a tasty, all-natural cocktail.

beer soap

For The Beer Lover

Know someone who loves their beer so much they would bathe in it? Now they can with this 6 Pack Beer Soap set for the beer lover in your life.


For The Health Nut

We just bought an Almond Milk Kit for ourselves and we’ve been making our own fresh-pressed almond milk every week. Which means I know exactly what’s in it and there’s no additives that I don’t like. It’s incredibly easy to make and a typical kit will include a 1-quart mason jar and cheesecloth-like mesh to strain your almonds.


For The Pet Parent

I just commissioned a portrait of our pup BINGO and went with Studio Firebaugh on Etsy. It’s an affordable $45 for a custom illustration and a digital file. 5×7 prints start at $10 and are printed on high quality paper and color-corrected. Just send her a few pics of your pet and a draft will be ready in about 3-4 weeks.


For Friends With Beards

Have a furry friend? Treat them to a bottle of this luxurious handcrafted Beard Oil from Beardscape in soothing scents like Eucalyptus or Citrus Spice. Also comes in unscented for those looking for a softer touch without the fragrance. Made with all-natural oils like argan and jojoba.

day designer holiday gift

For The Type A

I spent $70 on this planner from Whitney English – which is crazy if you think about it. It’s an investment and worth every penny in my opinion. I use it everyday and I LOVE the way it’s organized and laid out. I would buy it again next year because I love how your schedule and to-do list are laid out side-by-side.


Don’t forget to add a set of these fun planner stickers in his or hers stocking.

poler stuff camp vibes

For The Happy Camper

Upgrade the mattress pad and camping pillow for your favorite outdoors-y person with these stylish designs from Poler Stuff x Thermarest. I got the floral design for me and Paul went with the camo.

The mattress pad is super comfy, you just have to inflate it when you get to camp and the pillow compresses down for backpacking. You can see more of my camping gear picks here!


For The Sports Fanatic 

I don’t know what it is, but Paul swears by his Stance Socks and proclaimed them the comfiest socks he’s EVER worn. If you have a sports fanatic on your hands, check out the NBA and team socks from Stance as a stocking stuffer idea.


For The Beauty Queen

There are SO many amazing holiday value beauty sets that come out around this time of year that are a GREAT DEAL. You’ll probably want one for yourself and you can always gift the other one! See my round-up of the BEST holiday beauty sets to buy this season.
