Sara’s Picks: Holiday Gift Guide

Share Article

Though I got a late start this year, I love the holidays — including the shopping frenzy. I love discovering new products, analyzing gift guides, crafting Pinterest boards, but mostly I love finding that perfect gift. Here’s my curated Holiday Gift Guide with a little something for everyone.

My Wish List: 


Cheers tee (J.Crew); Pop Pop Popcorn Taster (MOUTH); The Bowery camera bag (ONA); Key Chain bottle opener (Coach); Fire Cider

Most of these speak for themselves — my love for libations and popcorn are well known. Clockwise from top left:

  • A fresh tee that toasts to any occasion.
  • Who wouldn’t love a gift set of specialty popcorns?
  • Now that I have a fancy camera (again), I’d love to store it in this beautiful antique cognac bag for shoots on the go.
  • I could use a good new keychain, and quality leather plus (extra) functionality is a win-win.
  • The Fire Cider would be a great mixer or as a tonic on its own.

More of my Holiday Wish List.

For your sister who loves champagne and lives too far away from you:


Pennsylvania Home tee (The Home.T); Champagne Bon Bon (Makes Scents Natural Spa Line); Fair Isle socks (Madewell); Faux Fur Ice Scraper Mitts (Fabulous Furs); Christmas with the Rat Pack; Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (Verizon); St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur

Clockwise from top left:

  • Remind your favorite person from where they came in a t-shirt boasting her home state — comes in men’s sizes as well.
  • Makes Scents Natural Spa Line has a variety of delicious-scented bath and body products to pamper your favorite girl. My sister will adore the Mimosa line and this champagne bon bon. You can SAVE 30% on your order now through Dec. 20 with code “SaraBozich30.”
  • You can’t go wrong with these adorable Fair Isle patterned trouser socks.
  • For the forever-fashionista — faux fur ice scrapers make even the most menial task fabulous (looking, at least).
  • Christmas with The Rat Pack — The only Christmas album you ever need, I promise.
  • For skype-ing with far-away relatives, plus great games, speed and connectivity. I’ve never been much of a tablet-user, but I tested the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 for about a month and fell in love with it. It’s just the right size for portability and function.
  • I’ve often said that any cocktail that use St. Germain is a good one. Treat your sister to a bottle — she’ll love the St. Germain spritzer — add some of the elderflower liqueur and club soda to a bottle of Pinot Grigio in a pitcher with ice for a perfect brunch cocktail.

For the hostess with the mostess/Hard-to-shop for relative/Secret Santa: 


Wooden martini glasses (Uncommon Goods); Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup (Mikuni Wild Harvest); Pinnacle Cinnamon Roll Vodka; Mr. & Mrs. rocks glasses (Furbish); Bottle opener & resealer (Kaufman Mercantile); Hot Sauce sampler (Torchbearer Sauces)
