Your Holiday Gift Guide for the 5 Types of People In Your Life

Your Holiday Gift Guide for the 5 Types of People In Your Life

I love the holiday season and all the joy it brings. Some of my most favorite articles are the gift guides as I get to explore new brands as well as share my favorites.

When gifting — I think it’s really important to keep it useful with brands that are impactful! Since you’re spending money — it’s important to spend it on things and experiences that will enhance ones life.

Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.

This year I’ve gathered 5 favorites that are sure to fill the need of the many loving personalities we call family and friends.


For the Earthy type that’s all about Mother Nature. 

For both him & her Based on the 3 pillars of beauty — Arya Essentials is the best form of holistic medicine to bring out your inner glow. Since it’s inspired by the rituals used by the royal families, this method was originated over 5,000 years ago in India. It’s basically the belief that everything we need is found in Mother Nature. Arya uses all natural ingredients and I 100% swear by them! This is proven beauty according to ancient wisdom.

➁ For the fashionista that’s always on point.

For both him & her → You can never go wrong with something chic, minimalistic, or classy. Please avoid the big statement pieces as those fade in and out of style. But one thing that always sticks is the Parisian way. And that’s why I recommend a styled watch from Daniel Wellington’s collection. I ordered the all black with silver lining — gift to me!


Watch from Daniel Wellington // Clutch from Julie Brown NYC

Use code DOOST15 for 15% off when you order on It is valid from today and will work every day until January 30.


For her If you really want to take it up a notch → I would recommend a gift card or sweater from Julie Brown NYC this season ♥ What I love about her collection is that it aligns perfectly with the classic style of women like Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O. Because it’s sophisticated, classy, and always in style.

They have a bunch of weekend sales this month for 25% off on party outfits, festive tops, and accessories (every Tuesday). Be sure to sign up for their email list here → ♥ to stay up to date!


➂ For the comfort-above-all type with good taste.

For both him & her → You can still be stylish and comfortable af! Just ask Mila Kunis, Chris Pratt, Amy Schumer, or the people at Shark Tank, E!, The New York Times, and People magazine — who are all talking about Home T. Because it is the perfect gift for anyone who loves to celebrate their state pride, anyone who misses their home, or is just about to move to a new place!

I think it’s really important to wear style with a cause. So one of the brands I’m loving this season is Home T → always made in the USA. They also donate 10% of all profits to multiple sclerosis research. Did I mention they are insanely soft!



➃ For the foodie in your life.

For both him & her → Get the gift of delicious food! No seriously, be the merry Santa and fill stockings with gift cards to their favorite restaurant(s).

If you’re in NYC then Black Barn Restaurant should be on that list! In addition to their mouth-watering dishes for all 3 meals of the day — their Chefs Table is the ultimate experience. Imagine giving the gift of an intimate dinner experience by Chef John Doherty — a man who has cooked for kings, queens, presidents, and world leaders. Welcoming you to a six-course dining experience paired with wines specially curated to enhance your palates and inspired by the fresh in-season produce found at the farmers market. Furthermore, you can read more about the experience here.


➄ For the sentimental in your life.

For both him & her Get Wickd is a brilliant eco-friendly brand with a sentimental message. My favorite feature is their customizable option where you can use your own bottle — one from a celebration, a memorable dinner, wedding, birthday, etc. — and send it to them to get it filled and engraved. This is how it works. Furthermore, you can also choose a bottle from their inventory. As a result, one of the most thoughtful gifts ever!

In conclusion … here’s to the joy of gifting & making it personal!

Most of all, I wish you a very merry holiday season ♥
