I can’t believe this year is (finally) coming to an end, and despite it all, there’s still so much to celebrate. For me, this year was one of incredible growth and patience and a renewed sense of self.
Like many of you, I discovered who and what truly belongs in my life; and I was also reminded that life is short and to never take a single day for granted.
That being said, it’s time to cherish our loved ones and pamper them more than ever this year! I already wrote about several of my top holiday gift suggestions for Lonely Planet, but I decided to share some extra discoveries here, too. 2020 wasn’t easy on anyone, so why not spoil those that you consider special to you?
Here are a few of my favorite go-to, fail-proof, quick-and-easy gift ideas this year!
I’m big on astrology, and love the idea of gifting friends and family members with a personalized candle created specially for them. The packaging is loaded with fascinating details about their personality and the all-natural soy and coconut wax candle smells like their enchanted inner spirit.
Mae Marie Intention Wraps
Ever since I discovered this cool brand of wrap bracelets, I haven’t taken mine off. Simply say your intentions or deepest wishes into the universe and wrap this stunning hand-strung piece around your wrist to manifest some magic into your life. Gift one to every gal in your life to keep the positive vibes going into the New Year.
OWA Hair Wash
I love gifting friends beauty products that they wouldn’t know about otherwise. I’ve had my eyes on OWA’s innovative Moondust powder-to-lather shampoo (yes, you read that correctly), and I have to say it does not disappoint. It suds up quickly, comes in a super compact, totally sustainable bottle, and delivers a satisfying wash that leaves your hair squeaky clean, ultra shiny, and full of life. Plus, it’s vegan and totally natural. This one 100% lives up to the hype. Use code JENNCHANGLAM5OFF for $5 off your purchase or shop here.
After the chaotic year we’ve all had, everyone could use a pair of easy, cozy, crazy comfortable joggers, and they simply don’t get better than Vuori’s luxe styles. I am wildly addicted to mine, and now I want several more pairs. It makes total sense that this brand is thriving during the pandemic. Get a pair for everyone (literally everyone!) on your list and makeholiday shopping as painless as possible this year. Oh, and yes, guys absolutely love them, too.
Spiritually Sassy by Sah D’Simone
Sah is quite possibly one of my favorite discoveries on Instagram of 2020, and his addictive personality always brings a smile to my face. His latest book is sure to be a crowd pleaser for the woo-woo spiritual types on your list, or for anyone who’s ever been just a tad bit curious about tapping into his or her higher self. Trust and believe, this is the page turner you didn’t know you needed. Let the high vibrations roll.
Derek Lam 10 Crosby 2AM Kiss Fragrance
I’m a sucker for a unique, unexpected scent that transports me to a time and place that I’ll always remember fondly, and Derek Lam 10 Crosby 2AM Kiss does exactly that. This sexy, warm fragrance brings me back to living in New York in my early 20s, filled with exuberant freedom, far-reaching aspirations, and an utter sense of big city bliss. With smoky notes of salty caramel and crystalized amber, this spicy perfume may not be for everyone, but it’s everything to me. Gift this one to the most sophisticated person in your life.
Tom Ford Ombre Leather Cologne
When shopping for the man that has everything, Tom Ford cologne always does the trick. I am wildly obsessed with this warm and smoky scent boasting intriguing notes of black leather, cardamom, and patchouli. If you ask me, there’s simply nothing more seductive than a man who smells like utter intrigue and mesmerizing mystery.

I love charming, dainty jewelry, and this personalized pendant necklace from Mini Mini Jewels fits the bill for any female on your list. Pick an initial with meaning, and let the compliments roll in. Available in rose gold, yellow gold, or white gold with a single, sparkling diamond.
UNITE Hair Gift Set
This set is one that every stylish gal will appreciate. Repair winter hair with reenergizing extracts and proteins, such as artichoke leaf, oats, and chamomile for a much needed post-holiday, spa-like experience. This chic set includes UNITE’s ultra reparative RE:UNITE Shampoo and Conditioner, 7SECONDS Detangler and an eye-catching striped travel bag. Fun fact: Not a day goes by that I don’t spritz the detangler throughout my locks. I’m a believer.
