The Feathered Nester’s Gift Giving List

1. Personalized Wine Crate Comfort Mat by Ballard Design, $49-$89.


I love this personalized mat! In fact, that’s my mat above from our coffee bar/beverage fridge area. Not only is it gorgeous and comfortable, but is machine washable! Ballard Design offers it in three different sizes for the perfect fit.

2. Felina Lounge Set, Costco, $19.99


This is the most comfortable lounger set I’ve ever worn. And, its such a bargain! My daughter and I both love it. It’s soft, non-piling, and looks flattering on. I may or may not be buying this for other family members, lol. It’s available at Costco, both in stores and online.’-2-piece-Lounge-Set.product.100286108.html

3. Ugg slippers, Nordstrom, $99.95

I’ve had these Ugg slippers for several years now and I love them! They’re comfortable and supportive, and I confess to occasionally wearing them around the house all day. With a water-resistant suede exterior and rubber sole, they’re ideal for indoor and outdoor wear. The soft inner lining is made from genuine shearling. I’ve included an highly rated, alternative selection through LL Bean for $59, since the Uggs are a little pricey.

4. Garnet Hill Organic Cotton Hooded Sweater Tunic, $98

Nothing is more comfortable on those cold winter days than this pullover tunic. It’s super soft and has a nice, relaxed fit. Paired with leggings and boots, it’s ideal for a day of running errands. When it is chilly outside, I’ll pair it with a long-sleeved shirt under so I can skip wearing a jacket.

5. Volcano Beauty Travel Set, Anthropologie, $48

This is the perfect hostess gift! Have you ever smelled a Volcano candle? If not, let me assure you that it’s Heaven. This set includes a candle, matches, bar of soap, and hand lotion. I have the hand lotion and it is ideal for moisturizing those dry, winter hands. For those who aren’t travelers, this set would look great on a nightstand or bathroom counter.

6. Ancestry DNA kit by Ancestry, Amazon, $69

This is an ideal gift for those interested in family history and ancestry. Since Ancestry reduced the price by $30, it’s a great deal, too! There are several types of DNA tests out there. As a genealogy buff, I recommend this one. Ancestry is constantly improving and expanding on their DNA results. It’s reflected in your personal DNA dashboard, which matches you us anonymously (or through your family tree, if you make one) with genetic matches. One of the latest expansions is the ability to see  your ancestor’s migration to the U.S.

7. Hayden Leather Charging Clutch, Olive & Cocoa, $198

This leather clutch has a hidden battery charger inside! How genius is that? Sized at 6″ x 9″ it will fit right into your purse or tote or use the wrist-strap. The roomy interior holds your essentials with credit card slots and an interior zippered coin pocket. Free shipping.

8. Ocean & Pacific Palette, Beautycounter, $58

Inspired by the sparkling sand and glistening sea of the California coastline, Ocean & Pacific includes nine satin and shimmery hues for eyes and face. The pallet contains six shadow shades, a blush, bronzer, and highlighter. They can be used alone or blended together to achieve endless looks. Each shade gets its luxurious texture from naturally derived cocoa seed butter.

9. Instant Pot Duo Plus 6 Qt., Williams-Sonoma, $119.95

This will be on my own Christmas list this year. I’m amazed at the variety of stuff that can be made in the Instant Pot. My sister made the best deviled eggs with hers, and she said the eggs peeled absolutely effortlessly. This is available in stores and online. Sign-up with Williams-Sonoma on their website and you can receive 15% off and get free shipping!

10. Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker With Temperature Probe, $49

My daughter got this recently and she loves it. She says it’s really versatile for home, work, and social events. During her last work potluck, she used the probe for the ham she was serving and it came out perfectly. It’s available in stores and online. I found it for a low-cost at Amazon.

11. Favorite MM, Louis Vuitton, $985


This gift is a splurge for most people, but it’s one of Louis Vuitton’s most popular bags now. With a short chain strap for shoulder use and a longer leather strap to use as a crossbody, this is a versatile smaller bag.

I received this handbag for my birthday and I love it. I use mine with an optional, adjustable monogram strap (purchased separately) instead of the vachetta (tan) strap it came with. This purse is surprisingly roomy and holds my full-sized wallet, 6-ring key holder, cell phone, checkbook, and lip gloss.

Optional monogram straps: wider width (the one I use)
