You’ve probably heard of, seen, or owned a Le Creuset dutch oven. They are one of the most popular wedding gifts for newlyweds and, like KitchenAid stand mixers, a kitchen staple for adults everywhere. When I was shopping for my wedding registry earlier this year, an employee at Williams-Sonoma encouraged us not to register for a Le Creuset, but instead a Staub dutch oven. I became curious and started noticing my favorite food bloggers posting meals in Staub cookware on Instagram—and I recognized that my favorite fast casual food place, Cava, used them to display food. THEN, we tested dutch ovens at Reviewed and our favorite overall was the Staub! Clearly these dutch ovens are hot right now, so get them for the person in your life who loves cooking. You can’t go wrong.
Whenever someone is stumped for what to give their wife, sister, or girlfriend, I always end up encouraging them to buy a Sephora perfume sampler as a gift. Ten years ago or so, my grandmother bought me this gift and it honestly changed my life. I knew nothing about perfume, but I was able to dabble in a few best-sellers thanks to this kit. When I was done, I picked my favorite (Chloe Eau de Parfum) and redeemed the coupon in the gift set for a full-sized bottle of it. I still use Chloe today. This might be at the bottom of the list, and I might be recommending it for the random person in your life, but this is a life-changing gift and it’s actually great for anyone and everyone.
I thought I hated jeans until I discovered Madewell’s high-rise jeans. They’re comfortable, they’re slimming, they never rip, and they’re a great price. And they have curvy jeans now, which honestly were the best gift I ever received when I bought those bad boys for myself. If you're not sure what kind to get, I recommend a classic 10-inch (not too low waisted, but not too high) in a solid color dark wash (see link below). Read more about my thoughts on the jeans here.
