2022 Holiday Gift Guide: Festive Gifts

Fa la la la la la — this gift guide was so much fun to put together. For my first round of holiday gift guides, I focused on gifts around certain price points — $25 & under, $50 & under, $100 & under, and stocking stuffers. For this next batch, I am creating more thematic guides, and kicking it off with one of my favorites: festive gifts! Below is a roundup of holiday-themed gifts — all at a very reasonable price point — that would be great for any recipient on your list.


Bedford Falls Angels Baseball Hat — one of my all-time favorite movies is It’s A Wonderful Life and this Bedford Falls Angels baseball hat is perfect for anyone who loves the holiday classic. It comes in several different designs + colors, but I am partial to the hunter green.

Ugly Sweater Christmas Apron — perfect for any chef in your life, this ugly sweater apron made me smile so big when I first saw it on the Nordstrom website.

Our First Home Ornament — several of my close friends have become homeowners this year, and this ornament is the perfect way to help them celebrate their first Christmas in their new home.

Metallic Twisted Taper Candles — beautiful on any holiday tablescape, but also neutral enough to burn year-round.

Festive Cupcake Kit — pair with your favorite box cupcake + icing, and you’ve got such a cute gift.

Green Pickle Ornament — growing up, my grandparents always hid a green pickle on their Christmas tree and the first grandchild to find it won a prize. I love the idea of gifting a green ornament to another family so they can start their own tradition.

Bauble Stocking — I love the story behind bauble stockings: essentially, they’re meant to hold the last gift of Christmas — or a clue to what it is — and become a keepsake for years to come. Plus, they’re hand-stitched made for fair trade in Haiti.

Deck the Halls Cocktail Napkins — these cocktail napkins from Rifle Paper Co. are so cute and would make for a perfect hostess gift.

Santa + Reindeer Cookie Cutters — pair with some supplies to make and decorate sugar cookies, and you’ve got an easy and cute gift.

Holiday Hand Cream — perfect as a stocking stuffer or a little something special for a coworker or casual friend.

Festive Trivia — around the holidays, my family loves to play games, and this festive trivia would be such a fun one to play together, especially during those lazy days between Christmas and NYE.

Mistletoe Porcelain Mug — such a beautiful festive mug — would pair really nicely with a hot chocolate bomb.

Mistletoe Knotted Headband — I love a good headband, and this one is such a cute holiday pattern.

Red Ribbon-Wrapped Bracelet — a fun little stocking stuffer — or treat for yourself.

Red Thread-Wrapped Drop Earrings — these earrings are festive and fun, but neutral enough they’d work for other occasions throughout the year. They’d make for a great stocking stuffer, too! They also come in green and black.

Festive Drink Stirrers — these festive drink stirrers are a fun way to level up any holiday cocktail or mocktail.
