Whispering Willow’s Rest & Renew Gift Box 

This is one of our favorite gifts to give and receive this year! After the hectic holidays, this gift will be a calming invitation to rest & relaxation. Whispering Willow’s Rest & Renew Gift Box is perfectly designed to help you find peace, calm, and rejuvenation.  It contains Bar Soap, Body Oil, and a Lavender Neck Wrap.  The neck wrap, which can also be ordered individually for $36, is heavenly! It provides a calming, aromatherapy experience when heated in the microwave that eases tension and tightness in your neck, shoulders, and back. A great gift for the person who has everything or the caregiver in your life that needs a reminder to take a few moments for themselves. Available in Lavender, Lemongrass, or Eucalyptus & Mint, it arrives in a linen-wrapped, embossed box ready for gifting. $75

Protege Painless High Heels

Dance the night away without having to kick off your heels! These shoes have been called “the most comfortable stilettos in the world.” The first comfortable stilettos, designed by a female MIT Graduate in Mechanical Engineering who realized how little effort was being put into research and development of comfort and stability, as most (male) designers do not wear their own creations. Available in black, white or nude. $235


We are huge fans of the LOULOU DAMOUR brand; the perfect blend of international flair with a tailored look that is also comfortable. Get compliments with the LOULOU DAMOUR Savannah dress, a smart style with a flattering design; wear this dress anywhere – from a day of travel to a party. Add a little shimmer for the holidays or Valentine’s Day with the red Mademoiselle top that pops with color and fit. Pair it with nice black pants for a more dressed up look or with jeans and wedges for a more casual style. $175/89

Lâcher Prise Finesse Dress

Give the gift of comfort with this sexy Lâcher Prise dress (that works really well as a swimsuit cover-up). This brand is sustainable (the company even tracks its carbon footprint on their website!) This dress (which, surprisingly, is one size fits all) is not only adorable but also very practical. While it’s stunning in black with a snug fit, you can dress it up for a fancy dinner or dress it down for a relaxing day. $92

Arteana Italian heels


Wanting to bring a touch of Italy home from your travels together, these low heeled slip-ons are the perfect blend of finery and accessibility. The square tow slip on is easy to glide into and the heel is not too tall but just the right touch of femininity. She’ll feel the LOVE with these beauties, which are a delicious blend of Mediterranean effortlessness combined with “la dolce vita.” $365

Cozy Earth Pants & Hoodie

She will want to put on this leisure clothing after a long day at work– or if she’s lucky enough to WFH, this will be her favorite uniform! Like our favorite Cozy Earth duvet comforter, these are also made from bamboo and are temperature regulating so she will be completely comfortable, all day, anywhere. The Women’s Bamboo Ultra-Soft Hoodie and Wide Leg Patch Pocket Pant left us at the perfect temperature while curled up under a blanket or out walking around town. $145/170

Avaka 3-in-1 Face Roller

We love the compact size of this face roller! Easily fits in your purse,or even your pocket, for beauty on the go. AVAKA’S 3-in-1 Beauty Tool is equipped with three different types of interchangeable rollerballs to fit your skin’s needs. Includes two Volcanic Face Rollers to naturally soak up any unwanted oils. It instantly eliminates sweat, shine and mattifies your skin. A Rose Quartz Ball to calm redness, reduce puffiness, and flush lymphatic waste. The third roller option is a Cryo Face Roller that constricts blood vessels and brightens your skin for an instant glow! (Store cryo ball in the fridge for extra cooling effect.) $29

August + Monroe Wake up Call Eye Cream

A wake up call for your eyes, this new serum works wonders for the under-eye area! Wake Up Call is packed with a vitamin C derivative that prevents crow’s feet and absorbs hydration into the eye’s delicate skin. This light-weight, peach gel texture has a patented cooling tip that will decrease puffiness, redness and dark circles too! $52

Warming Aromatherapy Slippers

The perfect way to wind down after a busy day at work or at home! Pantuss makes aromatherapy warming slippers! To reach ultimate desired comfort, you take out the insoles and heat them in the microwave. The dried lavender flowers and flax seeds create a calming, relaxing aroma and when you insert them back into your Pantuss slippers and slide your feet in, that is when you reach the pinnacle of relaxation. Pantuss was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during a cold winter back in 2012. Pantuss’s owners, two sisters, designed their products to be a perfect combination of comfort, design, and aroma. Almost instantly, families started buying Pantuss throughout the country. Their aromatherapy slippers allow customers to relax at home in style and comfort. They are also handmade from eco-friendly, sustainable materials! Pantuss is also now a U.S. certified Minority Business!  $25-61

Not Just Co.’s Pantry Staple Mixed-Pack

She’ll love this OG pantry lineup for every dinner need! Not Just Co.’s Pantry Staple Mixed-Pack contains the 10 veggie pasta sauce, used for chili-starting, enchilada saucing – a meal starting sauce that’s also great on pasta. There’s also the tomato pesto that packs tons of flavor, as well as the lemon miso dressing. Use this dressing to marinate meat and make salads craveable. Give leftovers a new life! Then there’s the coconut caramel sauce, which turns a piece of fruit or bowl of ice-cream into an even tastier treat. $47

American Spoon’s Christmas Cheer Collection

The Christmas Cheer Collection is the perfect gift for someone who has everything! The newest addition to American Spoon’s holiday gift collection includes some of their most beloved items, such as the Christmas Cherries, Peppermint Caramel, Holiday Jam, Star Thistle Honey, Maple Syrup, Maple Granola, and Wheat + Malt Pancake Mix. $110

Rubirosa’s Cucina Combo

Italian food lovers will enjoy the Cucina Combo package by Rubirosa – the iconic Italian-American family-owned restaurant and pizzeria in New York City, known for its buzzy, celebrity clientele, thin crust pizzas and signature fresh pastas.

Serve with your favorite pasta or test out on your home pizza oven! $59

William Murray apparel for her

Owned by superstar Bill Murray, they just opened a store in San Antonio and have had a storefront in Austin’s Domain for a while. While the store features high-end golf clothes with fun styles, you can really wear this hip apparel anywhere. The Murray Classic Driver Dress is perfect for a day of traveling (because of comfort) when you want to hit the ground running at your destination (maybe a walkabout town or having cocktails at the bar). Their Classic Polo Dress, which hugs the body, can be worn on the golf course or even game days. Starting at $48

Freebird shoes & boots

These are some of the best shoes we’ve seen this season. They’re made with leather and come with a heel and buckles. They dive into the western spirit while still keeping the cowboy style feminine. They fit true to size, but if you’re between sizes, we’d recommend going down a size instead of up. The fabulous shoes can be dressed up or down. This style comes in several colors and Freebird features many other styles. Do yourself a favor and check out their boot section. $195 – 295

Mystic Sunset perfume

This perfume embodies the warm sunsets in Positano, Italy. The lush aroma has hints of saffron, jasmine, cedar wood, floral essence, tart black currant and sugar cane. It’s the combination of sweet and savory with the magic from the Amalfi Coast. Take your Amore back with each scent! $170
