The 2021 holiday season is here. I am sharing with you my Gift Guide including all of the products from brands that I love and trust. It’s a bit early this year, so you could shop early since there has been a worldwide shortage in supply. Hope it’s helpful, and feel free to check my Holiday Gift Guides in previous years, linked at the end of the blog post if you’re interested.
Practical Gifts for Fashion Lovers
I’m sharing with you all of my favorite brands and items that I own and love to this date.
Ssense still remains my most favorite online retailer to shop for designer items of all time, and I absolutely love their bi-annual sales. They do minimal packaging, so don’t be surprised if your items come in just one box. Below are links to the available items that I own and do recommend as gifts.

ARITZIA EFFORTLESS PANTS in Black, Rich Mocha Brown, or Saville
ARITZIA THE SUPER PUFF DOWN PUFFER JACKET in Climate, Matte black
ARITZIA SCULPT KNIT CROPPED TANK in any colors
Practical Gifts for Outdoor Lovers
The items in this category are well-tested (by yours truly) and very much loved by people in the outdoorsy community as well. I always do tons of research and don’t settle for okay things. It is tricky shopping for the outdoor lovers in your life, but trust me with these recommendations.
I love the REI cash-back program, so. I highly recommend signing up at the cash register and asking them about the perks. It’s more expensive buying from REI since they rarely offer sales, but with your support, do know that REI staff gets good benefits. You can also return or exchange if something does not work out for you within a year of purchase, and I love that I can feel a bit more insured with expensive items like tents, trekking poles, and sleeping bags.
MY TENT, 3 means it sleeps 3 people:
MY SLEEPING BAG:
NEMO Disco 15 Sleeping Bag (REI) | NEMO Disco 15 Sleeping Bag (Moosejaw)
MY TREKKING POLES:
BACKCOUNTRY, MOOSEJAW, STEEP & CHEAP
I love Backcountry because of their sales. Shopping for hiking gear comes with a risk as you cannot return if there’s a defect after the item is used. So my tip is you’d always want to make sure what you’re buying when it comes to online shopping, and don’t buy because it’s on sale.
COTOPAXI ALLPA 42L TRAVEL DUFFEL (fit a week worth of stuff or even a month-long trip. I have the black one.)
I’ve worked with Keen on a few projects before, and I adore the brand and their products. Below are some items I own and love.
I own a lot of Girlfriend stuff and wholeheartedly recommend everything. If you’re looking for something compressive and thicker fabric, go for the Compressive fabric. I love the FLOAT fabric for the spring and summer since it’s thin, stretchy, and super comfortable.
Practical Gifts for Home Decor Lovers
I’m a big lover and admirer of art and design objects with practical purposes. Things that look good, perform and can stand the test of time. I own these items, mostly in cream/white color, but go with any colors your heart desires.
OPEN SPACES ENTRYWAY RACK in Cream
CARAWAY 7-PIECE COOKWARE SET in Cream
FULI JAPANESE FUTON (great for guests)
Coffee lovers get a section in my gift guide, of course!
