Need some holiday gift inspiration? You’re in luck. Rounded up below are some favorite products of Kirsten, owner of our beloved Alma Homes. These ideas are great for a friend, daughter, mother, or better yet, yourself! But act fast, because many of these products are on sale now!

So I did things a little differently this year, and instead of sharing things that are ON my wishlist, I’m sharing some of my most loved and used items from this past year.

Walli Phone Case | $55 | Shop Here

I’ve been using Walli cases for well over a year, and I’m completely obsessed with them. The card holder is SO convenient (I rarely bring my purse or wallet places), and this magnetic one still allows for wireless charging. Use code “almahomes” for an additional 10% off.

Apple Watch Band | $10 | Shop Here

These watch bands have been a staple in my wardrobe. They come in so many different colors, and I love that they stretch so you aren’t constantly clasping and unclasping your watch. Plus they’re adjustable which is a huge bonus.

Quarter Zip Sweatshirt | $53 | Shop Here

I have been living in this quarter zip so much I’m tempted to buy it in more colors. It is SO soft and something I find myself constantly reaching for in my closet.

Custom Bracelet | $64 | Shop Here

I am in love with any dainty gold jewelry. It is so timeless and I love how you can customize it! Engrave a name, a date, or even a short quote to make it a much more meaningful gift.

Pura Diffuser | $113 | Shop Here

I am blown away with how cool this is. Hate plugging and unplugging a regular diffuser? This is a smart diffuser that controls the timing and intensity from your phone. We have them at the office and at home, and there are so many fun scent options.

Ilia Triple Serum | $62 | Shop Here

Ilia has been a long time favorite of mine, and this is one of my most used products. This serum includes essential ingredients that help brighten skin AND it has SPF 40. I use this instead of foundation, but you can easily layer it under your foundation.

LolaVie Glossing Detangler | $26 | Shop Here

LolaVie was created by Jennifer Anniston, the hair goddess herself, and this glossing detangler is hands down one of the best I’ve ever tried. It not only detangles snarly hair but also includes heat protectant and shine enhancing benefits.

Barefoot Dreams Throw | $99 | Shop Here

You will never want another blanket in your life after being introduced to this dream oasis of a blanket. It’s lightweight but SO soft and cozy – its one I reach for all the time.

Arranging Things by Colin King | $50 | Shop Here

Need some tips on home decor? Other than the tips we share of course. Well, you’re in luck. This is a great coffee table book full of gorgeous spaces.

Hammered Hoop Earrings | $180 | Shop Here

A little twist on classic gold hoop earrings, these 14-karat gold beauties may be a splurge, but sometimes a splurge is needed for a staple piece like this.

Stanley Tumbler | $45 | Shop Here

You either love em’ or hate em’. But it’s hard to be a hater once you give in and try the Stanley out, especially when you can actually fit that large of a water bottle into your car’s cupholders!

Floral Dress | $50 | Shop Here

I have lived in these dresses the past year (I literally have them in 4 different colors & patterns). It’s lightweight and flowy, and I was able to wear them basically throughout my entire pregnancy, which was a huge win in my book. Throw on a jean jacket and go get some coffee, or pair with the right shoes and accessories and go on a little date.

Vionic Sneakers | $120 | Shop Here

Vionic is one of my favorite shoe brands because (call me a granny), but they have great support and a lot of podiatrists recommend them, BUT THEY ARE CUTE. This classic white sneaker pairs well with basically everything, all while giving you the arch support you need.
