It’s TIME! The 2023 Well Plated Holiday Gift Guide is here!

Christmas gift ideas

This year, I did something a little different: none of these items are from Amazon!

Now that I have an Amazon Storefront where you can find my favorites anytime, we wanted to pull a fresh list of finds from elsewhere on the web.

I hope you find inspiration from this list and that it allows you to kickstart (or complete) your holiday shopping!

Clothing, Shoes & Accessories

  1. Faux Leather Jacket. A classic (yet on-trend) piece you can wear for years to come!
  2. Varley Pullover. These have a major following for a reason.
  3. Fuzzy Cableknit Jacket. A way to be super cozy while still looking cute!
  4. The Perfect Holiday Bag. This adorable velvet bag can be carried in multiple ways and will be the ideal addition to any outfit.
  5. UGG Lounge Pants. Catch me living in these 24/7.
  6. Everyday Earrings. These chic and timeless earrings are the perfect thing to add to your jewelry collection.
  7. Rollneck Sweater. Comfortable, classic, and easily pairs with anything in your closet.
  8. Festive Pajamas. I’ve found my Christmas morning fit.
  9. Cableknit Sweater Dress. This is calling my name for Thanksgiving! This longer, burgundy version is beautiful too.
  10. Turtleneck Sweater. Classic indigo has French girl vibes.
  11. Ballet Flats. The shoe of the moment! There are so many great color options.
  12. Barefoot Dreams Socks. I’d like to marry these.
  13. Cozy Chic Long Robe. Not too heavy, not too light, and so cozy! Santa gave me this last year and I LOVE IT.
  14. Ugg Slippers. The coziest slippers ever!
  15. Lululemon Scuba Quarter Zip. HEAVEN to wear. I live in mine.
  16. Everywhere Belt Bag. There’s a reason this bag always sells out.
  17. Washable Sneakers. Dirty shoes? No problem! These staples sneakers are not only comfy and cute, but they’re washable too.
  18. Ultra Cozy PJs. These pajamas have a cult following for a reason. They’re incredibly soft, cute, and available in so many colors and styles.


  1. The Best Hand Cream. This stuff is magic!
  2. Silk Pillowcase. A splurge but better for your hair and skin and worth it.
  3. Hidden Pocket Scrunchies. These would be perfect for storing keys, money, or other small items when you don’t have a purse.
  4. Most Flattering Nude Lip. This brand makes the best lipstick and I adore this color for everyday or going out.
  5. My New Favorite Mascara. It washes off easily and makes lashes look so full and long.
  6. A Must-Have for Travel. This little personalized zippered case keeps all your jewelry safe and untangled during travel. Something everyone needs but rarely thinks about!

For the Home

  1. Woven Jacquard Throw. This is like a piece of art in the convenience of a cozy blanket.
  2. Reindeer Candy Dish. Something they’ll be excited to pull out and use each holiday season.
  3. Wine Rack. This is both functional and beautiful!
  4. Meyer Lemon Tree. The gift that’ll keep giving (delicious fruit) for years to come!

For the Kitchen

  1. ThermoWorks Thermometer. The BEST instant read thermometer. It makes an awesome gift! (Don’t forget to snag one for yourself if you’re making a Thanksgiving turkey this year.)
  2. Indoor S’mores Fire Pit. Any s’mores lover (me!) would love having this adorable little fire pit for the colder months. It would be such a fun addition to a dinner party too!
  3. Reindeer Mug. How cute is this?! I want the whole collection.
  4. Personal Pizza Maker. A reader favorite every year!
  5. Stanley Tumbler. The colors just keep getting better.
  6. Travel-Lovers Mugs. The perfect gift for anyone who’s visited these cities or has undeniable wanderlust (me!). Plus, there are plates, towels, and glasses that match.

Personalize It!

  1. Embroidered Ornament. Grab one of the pre-designed, adorable baubles, or send in your own custom design. The perfect way to commemorate milestones, trips, or places.


  1. The Well Plated Cookbook. It is a MUST HAVE. 3,500+ 5-star reviews and counting!
  2. How to Grill Everything. For those ready to fire it up.
  3. Art of Pie. For anyone who aspires to bake delicious pies (me!).
  4. Blue Zones Kitchen. For anyone who enjoys learning about healthy living, delicious food, or Centenarians (or if they’re fascinated after watching the Netflix documentary).
  5. Baking with Dorie. When it comes to delicious recipes that WORK, Dorie is someone you can trust.
