The Brunch on Chestnut Holiday gift guide kick off has arrived. I’m going to share a handful of basic guides (for her, for him, for the home, etc.) this week and then a handful of more unique guides as well next week, so stay tuned! I created a Holiday tab in my menu bar, where you can check out my running wish list and where all of these guides will live. I also am going to continue adding to each, so plenty of ideas coming your way!

This guide is for your closest ladies. Your mom, best friend, sister, sister-in-law, daughter. Someone who deserves a staple piece, because they are a staple in your everyday life! I made sure to only include items that I think are truly thoughtful, and I myself would be ecstatic unwrapping. I know a lot of people these days (myself and family included) send over a wish list, but these kinds of gifts are foolproof if you do want to wing it/have your giftee be surprised! I like to go for essentials that can we worn and used with love again and again. Candles, cookbooks, wine glasses, basic sweaters. These are my top favorites from around the web…

thoughts, ideas, questions...

I want the wine glasses for myself but I’m always nervous ordering glasses online because I’m afraid they’ll arrive broken. Trying to decide if I should just do it ….

I know, right! As I was putting together my gift guides on my Pinterest boards, I sold myself on ordering these myself! I have always wanted a super square glass, these are perfect. Ordering online is definitely risky, but I’ve had lucky before. CB2 is so fun to browse in person though. I swear they always have the best wine glasses!

So excited for this! Your teaser on instagram had me so excited, glad it’s finally here!

Aw, you’re too cute. Thanks lady!! More to come 🙂 x
