We get it. You want to give ever member of your family unique holiday gifts that show them just how much you care about them, but also ones that you're sure they'll love to open. But #momlife has made it hard to stay on top of the latest trends. (Been there, done that, mama.)
Luckily, our editors have been scouring the internet for the most beautiful, thoughtful and unique gifts to share with your family. And here they are for you, all in one place:
Encouraging our kids to dig to create and play could not be easier with this glitter dough by Scoops! They'll love its texture and endless possibilities (and oh yeah, GLITTER!), and you'll love that it's made of safe ingredients (think beetroot, spirulina and beta carotene). Plus, it smells like peonies! Win-win-win!
We're not sure that there is a more important message to teach young children. This gorgeous set contains three books (including the wildly popular What Do You Do With an Idea?—which is so sweet that I gift it to grown-ups, by the way). You will enjoy reading these books as much as your kids do.
OmieBox takes bento box lunches to the next level. It holds hot and cold food in one box, with two temperature zones, so entrées keep warm while veggies and fruits stay cool!
Perfect for the beginner sewer in your life, this adorable kit includes everything they need to get started in style: five reams of wool, tape measure, scissors, wooden knitting needles, a crochet needle, and instructions in a vintage-style carrying case.
Ask any parent ever, and they'll tell you that the most essential rule in their home is routine. With it, kids have predictability and safety... and that means more calm for you. We adore this Rhythm Chart of helping to remind your little one of what's to come. It's cute to display, and made even better by how profoundly it could impact your day!
This might be the prettiest baby book we've ever seen. And that's not even the best part. The designer shares that "Our Baby Book was designed for ANYONE expecting a baby. We know that families consist of more than just mom and dad, and we embrace that in this book. There is no mention of boy or girl, mom or dad, or Holidays. This makes our book truly universal for our international friends and all families alike."
Confession: I love making my kids' holiday wishes come true, but the impact on the aesthetic of my house can make me a bit bah-humbug-ey. That's why I have my eye on the Play Tool Bench Set. They will have an absolute blast building, and I will have no problem looking at it in my living room every day 🙂.
This. Is. So. Cute. This Felt Race Track means hours of fun for your kiddo, and you won't mind having it in the background of all your photos either.
Have a winter vacation to somewhere warm planned? Why should kids be the only ones to get colorful swimsuit designs? Batoko swimsuits are putting an end to that with their array of amazingly fun options (that are super flattering and supportive, too). And, they are made from recycled plastic in a factory that cares about their workers and the environment. What's not to love?
When our Brand Editor, Sara Goldstein, tried the Kate Somerville Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment, she fell hard (and convinced the rest of us to try it and fall in love, too). Sara said, "As a self-proclaimed skincare lover, this stuff is my new holy grail. I've used it twice now, and yesterday my partner said, 'you look like you had work done.'"
This hand-carved statement ring is as eye-catching as it is inspiring. Designed by artist Melissa de la Fuente, who believes "that jewelry is an intimate and personal form of self-expression," the Reminder Ring is an ever-present reminder that you are "no less than all the stars."
Made out of ecological and sustainable materials, Veja sneakers are earth-friendly, and the perfect combination of comfy and stylish. You'll master casual chic in these.
This gives new meaning to putting coal in someone's stocking. And sure, deodorant may not scream "festive holiday gift," but we all have that friend or partner we can talk about anything with—why not give the gift of smelling good healthfully with charcoal deodorant? Baking soda, along with good-for-you organic ingredients like grass-fed tallow, fair trade coconut oil, arrowroot powder, beeswax and essential oils, make this an effective way to make it through your most sweat-inducing moments.
You know when an idea is so simple and so genius, you see it and scream, "Why didn't I think of that?!" Well, a new one has arrived: A house for a beer! This insulated bottle holder keeps your beer bottle cold and protected, and it even has an opener built into the cap. Bonus points for coming in a ton of colors.
While this one may not be for Grandma (though if it is, we desperately want to meet her), this gorgeous and unique statement necklace from Cut + Clarity is perfect for your best friend, sister, or anyone else who loves to celebrate women.
Olive & June believes that you should be able to create the perfect manicure wherever you are (and we love them for that belief). If you're just getting started, the Everything Box includes a full set of tools along with your choice of six polishes.
For the person who's always wanted a tattoo but isn't quite ready to commit, these stunning, high-quality temporary tattoos are the perfect solution. They last for up to a week, but be careful—it may be just the inspiration they need to get the real deal.
Say goodbye to boring lunches. These beeswax coated canvas lunch bags are reusable and durable and will inspire you to actually keep that "I will bring my lunch to work" resolution you make this year.
Haus is an all-natural apéritif, with a third of the alcohol of whiskey or gin—"for more hangouts, and less hangovers." Choose from Bittle Clove or Citrus Flower (Rose Rosé will be coming back in 2020). Genius.
This gorgeous kit is crafted to provide all the necessary tools for a loving self-care routine, inspired by the loving rose quartz crystal. It comes with a Body Elixir, Aromatherapy Essence, Bath Potion, and a beautiful heart-shaped Rose Quartz crystal.
Let them create a theater anywhere they go! This movie projector fits onto your bag, and connect with laptops, USB drives, DVD players, Amazon Fire TV Sticks, and Xbox/PS4. When combined with an HDMI adapter, it can connect with smartphones, computers or tablets. The image is crisp and large. Just don't forget the popcorn.
The holiday season inspires us to get back to basics. We trade in our screens for time around a fireplace and yearn for a little extra time together. But what exactly are we going to do when we get there? This gorgeous Meta puzzle is the perfect activity for gathering the family together so you can talk, bond and play.
A new bar has been set. I have tried tons of yoga mats, and this is the ONE. I don't slip at all when I practice, not to mention that it's stunningly beautiful and feels like an absolute dream. And, they are antimicrobial! They come in sizes for everyone in your family, making them the perfect gift to jumpstart healthy habits and bonding.
#TeamMotherly got to try these out at our recent Team Summit, and we all fell hard. They fold up super-small (and come with a zip-up carrying case) and are a dream to wear and pack. Perfect for throwing into your diaper bag, car or suitcase so you can be ready-to-adventure at a moment's notice.
When it comes to minimal art that makes a real impact, we don't have to look any further than Smallwoods. Their gorgeous and straightforward designs are farmhouse-chic perfection, and the inspiring messages will make them an instant favorite. What's more, you can customize your art sign's size, frame and even the image.
Send this artist photos of your family, and she'll create a one-of-a-kind portrait to be treasured forever.
This handmade firewood storage box is the quintessential marriage of function and form. It can be used outdoors, but given how beautiful it is, we plan to keep it inside and as insight as possible.
This doormat could not resonate more deeply with us. When you need to gift to make them laugh—and that they'll love to use for years to come—this is it.
Gift the astrology-lover in your life this classy and beautiful rendering of the constellations that mean most to them. We'd love to see several of these in a row representing the constellations of everyone in the family.
This is the Bohemian decor piece of our dreams. The flowers are homegrown, and the fabric is fair trade, so you can feel awesome about hanging this beauty where you need to promote good sleep and peaceful dreams.
Relaxing just got an upgrade. This is perfect tor the adult that just needs a little more self-care in their life. The lavender scent is absolutely dreamy and will just melt the stress away.
