Hello, everyone!

Gift guides and wish lists or bucket lists seem to be full of personal choices.  And while that might be true, some personal suggestions happen to be someone else’s favorites as well. That for, any holiday gift guide I am going to share with you contains preferred things or other wished-for goodies. Hope you find them inspirational and helpful. Here is the first holiday gift guide, the lifestyle. 


Books are a great gift idea no matter what the season is. It’s a gift also for everyone, kids, girlfriends, boyfriends or family members. For any bookworm, a trilogy or a series of books it’s the best choice. Recently, I have added the Crazy Rich Asian trilogy to my collection (China Rich GirlfriendRich People Problems) by Kevin Kwan and I am pretty sure these books are suitable for many people on your list.

Another book, inspirational and motivating is the ”One question a day”. Well, this is not actually a book with a story, it’s a five-year journal and there is a different question for every day aimed to be answered again every year for the upcoming five years. Questions like ”Who could have been nicer to you today?”or ”Would you want to live forever?” sound intriguing and thought-provoking to me. Bookdepository is the website I use to buy my books as there are millions of book with free delivery worldwide.


From notebooks to calendars to diaries to planners and from pens to stickers and stationery products in general, the choice and the offering are endless. Bookstores or other stationery/gift stores can be found easily in every little neighborhood. That minimal black notebook is from Tiger Denmark, available in big cities around the world. That beautiful pink 2019 journal ”time to make the magic happen” is from a Greek department store which offers a great variety of stationery and technology products. At the same store, you can find cute notebooks for any budget and suitable for any age, such this cute pink cat notebook.



We all love those warm and cozy evenings at home enjoying our hot chocolate, listening to our favorite music,  surrounded by scented candles…Perfect scenery. H&M is your one store for mugs, little decorating pieces and candles of course. Recently I got this white porcelain mug which I could say it’s oversized, perfect for hot chocolate and for any kind of soups. ”Seek magic everyday” is printed on one side and the gold-colored rim adds extra luxury.


That mini porcelain dish in white is perfect for ”rings and other little things”, and can easily find its place on your dressing table. As for the candles I have mentioned above, at H&M you can find different sizes and amazing scents. A few of my favorites are the Burgundy/winter berry and the Gold/golden meadow. There is also a line with ”candles in a glass holder” with a screw-top lid in many different scents. Firewood figs smells fantastic, perfect scent for cold winter nights.


Sweater/faux fur vest

Sweaters and warm furry clothes are always appreciated, whether they are destined for Christmas gifts or for gifts in general during the winter season. Colorful or neutral sweaters, ribbed, cable-knit or beaded jumpers, there is a knitwear for everyone at any age. That dusty pink sweater is long-sleeved, soft and fluffy with ribbing around the neckline, cuffs and hem. At H&M you can find and choose your favorite one as there are several colors and types.


I prefer faux fur and a furry vest/gilet that can be worn over blouses or even jackets, is one more great gift idea for any fashion lover. Its brown color is versatile, perfect to match black, beige, blue and any other outfit. The black version from TopShop will upgrade any casual, sophisticated look to an evening one.

Well, these are a few of my favorites gift suggestions. But you can find more picks below. What are your favorite lifestyle gifts?

    I love all these items and would have to buy two of most of them, because I’d want one for myself! My favorite gifts to give are “fancy” coffee mugs!

    The white mug with the message – seek magic every day- caught my attention. I love collecting mugs and that one called me. You have a lovely selection of items we could all pick from.
