Shop these failproof gifts for women, and you’ll win at gift giving, guaranteed.


Ok, world peace would be great. But while we figure out how to give world peace as a Christmas present, here are some gifts that women in your life will really enjoy. Side note: I came across a list on The List App (are you on it? It’s great! Add me @savvyhome) by Hillary Kerr (@hillarykerr), co-founder of WhoWhatWear. She debunked what people actually like to receive a Christmas gifts (myself included) in the following order:


Inside jokes

A thoughtful reminder of a good time you shared.

Upgrades of everyday essentials

Don’t get a face wash or acne cream. But a luxe mask or bath oil? Yes!

Stalk their social

You’d be surprised how much you can find out about a woman by looking at her Pinterest feed.

Pay attention

Take notes throughout the year.

When in doubt, monogram

Gab Loves: Holiday Ready

Gab Loves: Holiday Ready • @SavvyHome

We got our first snow this morning! Although I got my winter tires installed yesterday, I wasn’t mentally prepared for the snow yet. It’s been so unseasonably warm this year, I feel like the temperature dropped by twenty degrees overnight. Thank goodness for Christmas music, because it instantly put me in holiday mode. I’m ready to tackle Black Friday like a champ and get all my Holiday shopping done. Bring it on! And happy Thanksgiving to everyone who’s taking off early!

Gifts for the 21st Century Gentleman

Holiday Gift Guide for Men • 2015 on @SavvyHome


The modern gentleman has many interests, from wine, to traveling, to music or art. He takes good care of his appearance, from his shoes to his beard. He appreciates the finer things in life: whiskey, backgammon, champagne. He takes pride in his home. We might think he’s hard to buy for, but it’s not the case. Just pick a gift that reflects one of his interests, upgrade his everyday essentials, get him a thoughtful home gift, or treat him to a classic (a bottle of scotch accompanied by clever whiskey stones never fails).
