My humble annual plea. 🙏

As you shop this holiday (and year-round), please consider doing so by first clicking one of my affiliate links. When you shop from a link in one of my blog posts or by clicking on the general store links that I have listed in the sidebar (see section called Support Natty Gal When You Shop!), I earn a very small commission on the item you buy at no additional charge to you.

These small commissions help offset the costs of maintaining this site and allow me to keep bringing you fresh content. If there is a retailer you’d like to have added to the sidebar, please contact me and I’ll see if I’m able to link it for you to shop.

❤️ Thank you so very much! Your consideration and support mean more than you will ever know. ❤️

Early Bird Holiday Gift Guide 2021

For Her

For the women’s guide, I’m featuring a long shacket – this year’s take on last year’s most-worn winter trend. It would pair beautifully with this bargain-priced oversized sweater from Amazon and the latest leggings from Spanx, a faux-suede version that comes in deep chocolate brown, merlot, olive, and camel.

For a splurge item, check out the Dyson Airwrap, a dryer/styler combo that any hair-obsessed woman in your life is sure to freak out over!

Huggie earrings have been a huge trend this year and are available at every price range. The pair shown below are from Kate Spade and are just under $50.

For Him

Last year we received a couple of Cliq chairs and they are amazing! They pack down to the size of an umbrella and are so convenient for summer lawn concerts, sporting events, and more.

Every guy needs the occasional wallet upgrade and the trend now is toward credit card-sized, sleek aluminum varieties. This one is RFID-blocking and has a lifetime warranty.

If your guy is a clotheshorse, Natty Guy has been loving this knit shirt from Johnson & Murphy. The one featured below is made of super-soft corduroy and features snaps instead of buttons. The North Face has taken their fantastic Thermo-Ball Technology and adapted it to slippers. With a water-resistant finish and collapsible heel, how can you go wrong?

For Anyone

Regular readers know…I’m a bookworm. And I’m currently reading You’re Invited (shown below). Fear not, this book isn’t about how to turn yourself into a Kardashian. It’s about how to form more meaningful connections and then how to leverage those connections in order to more quickly accomplish your goals. It’s an easy, quick, and MUST read for anyone!

Aside from great books, I try to look at universal interests when choosing gifts for someone that has me stumped. I mean, we all eat, right? And most of us get distracted and annoyed by too much clutter. Help someone clean up with a multi-device charging station. If you need more capacity than the one below, this one features 8 charging hubs.

Novel or quality cookware and kitchen accessories always make great gift ideas. Where you select an heirloom quality item from Le Creuset or Staub or a less pricey item like a Lodge cast iron skillet, getting something better than you’d buy for yourself is always a fun surprise!

When it comes to novelty, this Himalayan salt tequila glass set is perfect for your imbibing friends and is only $30! Coffee lovers always want to test out the latest and greatest. Try gifting them a pour-over or cold-press coffee maker.

Until next time…keep cultivating a simple, stylish, and satisfying life!
