Gift Ideas for Yourself + Some Noteworthy After Christmas Sales

December 26, 2022


The last few years I’ve had fun doing one final *sort of* gift guide post-Christmas with a few ideas to gift yourself as all the sales once again start up or really if you just want to treat yourself. 

This year’s inclusions are basically a list of things I own and love and can’t recommend enough as a way to treat yourself. So go ahead, you’ve earned it! Also included at the bottom of the post are a few post-Christmas sales worth shopping. 

Wishing you all a very happy new year!

Gift Ideas for Yourself:

  • Five Minute Journal: My personal favorite and such a good habit to start at the onset of a new year.
  • Tumi Bag: I don’t go on any trip without this since buying it and I just spotted it 20% off! It has been a w&w top seller this year and I definitely understand why.
  • Sarah Flint Shoes: A favorite brand of shoes – they are all designed to be so comfortable and elevate every outfit.
  • Noise Cancelling Headphones: Upgrade your life at home and when traveling in 2023. These are game-changers.
  • Anthropologie French Inspired Mirror: My favorite mirror is on sale now. I have the 3ft above my bedroom dresser.
  • Jenni Kayne Knitwear: My favorite brand for elevated, investment pieces I wear constantly. Use code TRUELOVE15 for 15% off!

  • Nespresso Machine: My lifeline for coffee at home for over seven years. 
  • Freda Salvador Boots: These chic boots are so comfortable and really elevate any look. They are now 50% off! I took my TTS.
  • Marc Fisher Izzie Boots: I own these in two colors! They are so comfortable and so warm. I am in love with this purchase and you guys have already made them a bestseller. Definitely worth it.
  • Vuori Joggers: Everyone’s favorite buttery soft joggers. I wear size S. Read my Vuori Joggers Review.
  • Vuori Energy Top: My all time favorite workout top. I wear a M.
  • Common Projects Sneakers:  Investment sneakers that are worth it. With our new casual lifestyles I can guarantee the cost per wear on these are worth it. My full review & all the ways I’ve worn mine can be read here
  • Athleta Elation Leggings: Hands down my favorite leggings these days. I size down to a Small. Followed shortly by these. So crazy soft – perfect for winter days. I wear a M.
  • Otherland: Chic candles to adorn your space in the new year.
  • Amazon Prime: Because it’ll change your life for the better in the new year. 2 day shipping! Grocery delivery! Video streaming!  And so much more. See all my Amazon favorites here.

  • Necessaire Body Wash + LuvScrub: Level up your shower game with two of my favorite rituals. These are a match made in heaven.
  • MM.LaFleur Leslie Tee: Let’s all commit to better basics in 2023 shall we? This is one of my favorite tees. Such great quality, thick so it doesn’t stretch out and from a female founded small business. 
  • La Ligne Knits: Elevated investment knits.
  • Sezane Scott Trench Coat: A timeless classic. I absolutely love my Sezane trench
  • Sezane Johnson Coat: Sleek and such a classic silhouette. Everyone who has bought this at my recommendation said it became a fast favorite. See it on and get sizing details here. Or really any of these Sezane Classics.
  • My favorite weighted blanket that has me sleeping more soundly in a major way. Can’t recommend it enough.
  • Inez Heeled Booties: One of my most worn pairs this fall – so comfy despite the heel height – I walked over 20,000 steps a day in London in these! I may have to get the black for 2023.
  • Loeffler Randall Boots: Going on six years of loving wearing these boots. They have been bestsellers with you guys for just as long! Comfy, well made and hold up with lots of wear – all of which make them worth the investment in my opinion.
  • Rag & Bone Rover Boots: One of my most popular shoes these are comfortable and great for trotting around. See them styled here.
  • Kinn Jewelry: Special pieces that feel heirloom and priced right. I adore my Kinn jewelry and think buying yourself jewelry is a beautiful way to celebrate the end of the year.
  • Lake Pajamas: Start out the new year with comfy, cozy pajamas that are cute and will just make you smile every time you don them.
  • Senreve Mini Maestro Bag: One of my most worn bags of the year. Similar in style to my beloved Celine Belt Bag but less $$$ and still beautifully made and super versatile. See it styled here.
  • Senreve Aria Belt Bag: Cannot stop carrying this bag! The size is so perfectly practical and I love that you can wear it crossbody or as a belt bag (truly so good for travel as a result, too!) 
  • Westman Atelier Makeup: The most gorgeous makeup to get your hands on and elevate your every day makeup routine. Also consider Merit Beauty.

  • Great Jeans: This pair I own in three different colors/washes. 
  • Dyson vacuum: Trust me you won’t regret it.
