House of Squirrels Holiday Gift Guide has finally arrived! HOS compiled 12 of our favorite things that would make a great, unique gift, for your friends and family! HOS had  your wallet in mind too! The gifts are well priced for anyone on a budget. Enjoy, and Happy Holidays!

I came across these adorable pajamas from L’ Wren Scott’s collaboration with Banana Republic. The collection will be on sale December 5. Click here to read all about the launch and make sure to mark your calendars!

I am crushing on this faux fur blanket by Cost Plus World Market. For only $59.99, the blanket makes a great gift for anyone who likes chic comfort! Lucky for me, a fellow Squirrel girl gifted me this for my birthday…..my crush has been fulfilled! However, the Chi’s have been hogging it! 🙁 (Click image to purchase)

If you have been following HOS, then you know we use Jan Marini products for our skincare. Every year, Jan Marini comes out with their Holiday exfoliator. This year the scent is ‘Sugar Cookie’…. a great present for someone who loves skin care products! (Click image to purchase)

Squirrel Score! I read about this amazing site in one of my favorite magazines, Bon Appetite! We are in love with their charming products. It’s called Wind and Willow Home. Everything is well priced and affordable. The colorful mini bowls would make a great gift for that culinary lover! Below is the description from their site:

“Choose your favorite color or two…or ten. They are all as cute as can be. Each carefully hand dipped in a custom mixed color made especially for the cooler weather. The colored portion is a soft rubbery plastic which makes them durable and non-slip. The wood is left natural, YAY. ”

Another product from Wind and Willow are these handmade wooden candle holders dipped in paint and glitter. How charming would these be on your dining room table or scattered around your house? A set of four is $16.00, and they have a variety of colors.  (Click image to be directed to site for purchase and other colors)

The last featured product from Wind and Willow are these hand made prints. I found this one in their kids section. But this would work for any age. If you are looking for gifts for kids, check out their products, and prints here. Tres charm!

These are the ‘new’ cookbooks that are all the rave in the culinary world. Each book focuses on one ingredient authored by America’s culinary experts. For $35.00 you can buy a trio of these Short Stack books. The books would also make a great host gift for those holiday parties!

One of my heroes in the industry is Laura Brown. Laura, is Executive Editor, at Bazaar Magazine. I had the pleasure to meet her at NYFW last September. Ms. Brown, lives up to her reputation and more! When Laura tweets out something she loves, I definitely take notice. Cut to- Cherry Bombe Magazine. A great subscription to give to that fashion/foodie enthusiast! (Click image for purchase)

I adore this Wellness set by Kusmi tea. The set is designed to get you through the winter months healthy! Beautifully packaged, they also come with their own mesh tea infuser spoon. (Click image to purchase)

I recently discovered the brand, Grace & I, at my local Bristol Farms. These delicious Fruit and Nut press boards, are handcrafted by culinary Artisans. They come in different combinations and also offer a seasonal version. A bonus feature….they come with a bamboo board! A unique gift for that foodie in your life, or as a host gift!

Gift that special dude in your life a Taster’s Club membership. You can choose Bourbon or Scotch, and do a month or longer.  Upon membership you automatically enroll in the Whiskey 101 course too! To read more about it click the image below!

One of our favorite gifts to give this year to that special ‘her’ in your life, is this must have Pop Sugar monthly box! This is a unique gift to give that person you don’t know what to get! You can purchase a month at $39.95, 3 months, $109.85, 6 months $214.70, and so on. How fun would it be to get a box full of surprises each month? Below is an example of their October box. We love, love, this idea for a gift! Click here to purchase.

Whatever presents you gift this year, remember the greatest gift of all is love. Love one another and be kind!

Happy Holidays!
