2020 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

Updated: Oct 15

As we round the corner on 2020, we turn towards the holidays. This year more than ever, we’re all looking for some epic joy. Here at JTI we work throughout the year with eyes peeled, gathering our favorite items to give and to receive. Even through the pandemic, we pressed on knowing that there would be light at the end of the tunnel and a brighter season upon us...even if we are celebrating virtually. Some of these items we have and absolutely love, other items are things we would be thrilled to receive ourselves. Either way, this gift guide is curated to the best of our ability and wrapped in a bow for you. It’s a place where you can scroll, click and check every gift off your list!


Speaking of clicks...we’d be remiss to not mention that by clicking some of the links we provide to you, you are helping to support a small business. This allows us to keep doing what we love-work as hard as possible to be your personal shoppers, try-ers, curators and create the ongoing “Guide to All Things Good.”


We appreciate you all and hope that this guide helps to make gift giving that much easier. After you check this list twice, you’ll be free to enjoy the holiday season without worry or shopping angst. Happy scrolling, happy shopping.


Stay merry and stay healthy!


FOR HER




Mandrn “Atlas” Fanny Pack - Allison bought this exact bag in “Nude” after being influenced on social media. She wore it to one meeting and we all agreed we needed one. We love that they are made fairly in Bali using 100% leather. Laura has the smaller “Remy” version, which is just as cute! *JTI CODE: “JTI15” for 15% OFF.


Favorite Daughter Cashmere Sweater - We’ve all seen the t-shirt, but have you seen the cashmere sweater? It’s darling, lightweight and perfect for running about town. We’ve seen it on and it fits super cute!


Vince Women’s “Lora” Booties in “Umbra Suede” - The perfect winter city bootie with a 2.2” heel. We love this brand for its quality and durability. This bootie will take you through more than one season.


Nicole Rose Baguette and Round Diamond Eternity Bangle - A beautiful and exquisite wrist addition for a fancier or evening look. We love this 14k rose gold , oval shaped bangle.





Courant Single Device Wireless Charging and Accessory Tray in “bone" - We are always looking for a way to beautify even the most practical things. This chic charging tray looks so pretty (while getting the job done) on a bedside table or in the entryway.


Etkie Tierra Glass Cuff Large - Gretchen and Laura love anything with a hint of Native American or Cowboy culture. Etkie bracelets are hand-beaded in collaboration with Navajo artisans in New Mexico. We love the colors in this pretty, statement cuff.


Rebecca Norman Sweet Size Bangle Bag in Black Leather - Gretchen and Laura discovered these in Solana Beach, Ca. a few years ago. Worry no more about where to put your clutch or losing it if you’re on the go…as the bangle allows you to wear it around your wrist! The clutch is the perfect size for a phone and lipstick. This makes a truly GREAT gift!


Kypris Beauty Elixir 1 “1,000 Roses” - This product had us at ‘beauty elixir.’ All four of us have owned and used this product for several years now. Especially love this for dry winter skin and a little goes a long way (thank goodness). Add a few drops to your daily face cream to nurture and moisturize your skin all day long. We all use this EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.





Blondo Suede Waterproof Velma Riding Boots - We love this brand of waterproof boot in the winter. They are great for ski trips or any city walking where snow or rain is involved. This sleek, pull-on riding boot style is a favorite!


White + Warren Star Mini Cashmere Travel Wrap - White + Warren’s best seller, this is the ultimate in travel wraps (or throw it over the back of your couch when not traveling!) Note the “mini” size here—which we love, as it’s not as much fabric. The stars are super fun but there are several colors to choose from.


Paravel Safari Green Aviator Carry On Plus - This is on Allison’s wishlist. It has an award-winning design and build and fits in perfectly in the overhead bin. We also love this “Safari Green” color.


Evereve Jamison Lafeyette Blazer - You may have seen us talk about this amazing jacket on Instagram. The iconic hoodie/blazer concept with a zip in hoodie dickey, this jacket is a less expensive version of the gorgeous Veronica Beard dickey blazer. Snag this one for a fraction of the price! Three of us own this and absolutely love it.





Lunya Washable Silk Cami Pajama Set - These are the BEST pajamas. Not only are they gorgeous, we can’t believe they are washable! Sliding into them feels like a gift at the end of a long day.


Saint Laurent Kaia Medium Leather Shoulder Bag in “brown” - YSL is always a “yes please” and makes such a fabulous “nicer” gift for her. We loved the brown instead of black for this perfectly sized cross-body.


Jane Win Love Coin Pendant Necklace in Yellow Gold - What is it about gold coin pendant necklaces that always attracts us? We love the tiny arrow-bound heart engraved on this one and it makes a perfect addition to any gold neck stack or stands perfectly fine alone, too.


Emu Australia Mayberry Slippers in “Charcoal” - This ridiculously cozy sheepskin slipper meets slide is everything! Perfect if you live in a warmer climate and need a little breathability in a slipper. Plus…is it a shoe? Is it a slipper? Nobody’s really sure - hence…more wearing time! *On Laura’s wishlist this year.



Blenders Eyewear JJ Pacific Aura Snow Goggles - Our husbands are fans of the men’s sunglasses from this brand and we are pleased to see they offer ski goggles as well! We thought the Crystal Champagne lens was fun, and it’s anti-scratch and anti-fog as well. Head to their site to see more!

Vince Zip-Front Plush Faux Fur Jacket in “Cream” - This jacket is just gorgeous and can be dressed up or down (although we like it up!) We love this brand for it’s consistent quality and classic styles.

Wise Women Coffee Table Book - The insights, courage and musings of 80 women aged 65-100 years old. A beautiful book with an equally stunning cover. Makes a perfect gift for the MIL, Hostess or just any woman you admire!

Women’s Nike Air Max 2090 Twist - White sneakers are very in right now and this modern looking Nike fits the bill. Great for working out but can also double as more of a “lifestyle” shoe as well.





Roller Rabbit Hearts Pajama Set - We love this brand for it’s lively patterns and fun products. This sweet pajama set looks so cozy. It also comes in kids sizes for matching Mommy & Me.


Kule O Girl Canvas Tote - For the whimsical at heart. This tote holds it all and looks great in the city or at the beach! We just love this brand.

Emerson Fry Layering Jacket in “Grey” - Emerson Fry is a JTI favorite brand and her unique pieces always deliver. Laura got this jacket last year for Christmas in black and loves it. Perfect for warmer climates, this piece is extremely versatile. Layer it over a long-sleeve top and jeans, belt it (or don’t) or pop it over a dress for added warmth and sophistication. It’s really a great gift and wardrobe addition!


Colorplay Backgammon Game - This colorful backgammon set provides a funky twist on an old classic. Allison recommends leaving it out and making it part of your home decor.


Tuckernuck Leather & Shearling Reversible Beckham Vest in “Cream and Hunter” - For the fashionista in your life who likes to layer. This combo material vest outdoes the puffer for a more sophisticated vibe. We love the leather addition.


Addison Bay Andi Bag in “Ink Camo with Leather” - Okay, this bag is SUPER CUTE, not to mention the features like a yoga mat attachment, the weightless industrial strength material it’s made of, cross-body or over the shoulder options, smart pockets, machine washability and more.




Isabel Marant White Velcro Shoe - We saw this classic sneaker on Cam Wimberly paired with a jogger and think they are darling and different. Plus, who doesn’t love velcro! *JTI Tip: Order up as these are in French sizing.
