Another year has come and gone, and we have survived and thrived.. or at least are pretending to really well! Now let us celebrate with semi-reckless abandon, and personalized gifts galore. You’ll find many of our gifts center around the home and bed, and that’s because we are lazy and love to be under the covers for most of the winter. Love us anyway.
Here are our picks for GGA Gift Guide 2019!
We are giving you plenty of time to do things in advance this year, no excuses. Pin your favorites on pinterest, or pop a handful of faves in your amazon and etsy carts so you don’t forget your favorites! Want to save cash? Use retailmenot.com for coupons when shopping online on nearly any website, and sign up for couponcabin.com for cash back for each online purchase you make! It’s free money, do it. You can also sign up for joinhoney.com to be alerted when the item you’re interested in buying goes down in price (if it does) since you have a little time to complete your holiday shopping and you’re thinking in advance, you fine-ass cowgirl.
Also: We know many of you choose not to support amazon, and we respect and understand your decision. Therefore, we have offered dual ways to shop most items with both the direct link to product from manufacturer, and an amazon link (or simile product) if available.
LOVER OF COZY
The most divine faux fur’s come from Shrimps, but this one the Queen actually bought after promising to go fur free! Turn the old school “a mink coat under the tree” idea of warm and comfortable luxe on it’s head.
If your co-worker really needs a Betty Friedan style take down, here’s the perfect secret Santa gift. It also smells really good, and lasts a long time so they never forget who the real head B is.
Don’t these tie-dye sneakers just put you in a good mood? Not only will you feel happy gifting them, they’ll be so grateful to you for the sheer comfort levels they’ll be in when they wear these sneaks famous for be the best for hiking. We feel like Mom (or Dad) would love these!
We love this fuzzy mini backpack from LeSportSac for a super hip girlfriend and/ or a little one who loves furry things. It comes in black and blue too!
Speaking of warmth.. say goodbye to dangerous space heaters and hello to the next generation of energy-efficient home-heating patented nanotechnology. Invroheat’s Wall-hanging Infrared Room Heater is decorative wall art that is also a safe and energy-efficient way to heat your space. No more bulky space heaters that take up floor space or could easily get knocked over. Invroheat’s simple, safe and money-saving design makes warming up a room easy, so this is a perfect – and unique -gift for a college kid in a chilly dorm room, a home office denizen, or a library lovers book nook. Infrared is radiant heat, it’s the same as the feeling of warmth from the sun on your face and or the heat from a coal fire. This has been favored for millennia because it heats objects, which then radiate back and keep the environment warm around you.
Or take it a step further, and get them this romantic tabletop fire pit that will cozy up any room. Just maybe don’t buy this for anyone with kids or pets, as they’ll likely bill you from the doctors office.
You know those really luxe items you always dream of getting as a gift? One of ours is the Cariloha sheets – famous worldwide as the softest sheets ever made. But they don’t come cheap – which makes them the sexiest gift for under the tree – pure luxury and comfort wrapped up in one!
This tote bag says it all about your bestie, and the price is right if you’re the kinda biatch who has 12 best friends who all fit the bill.
If they travel a lot, they will so appreciate this gift which allows them to set up their tablet as a mini tv and watch without holding their screen. What a thoughtful gift for the homie who is always on the road.
Weighted blankets are a dime a dozen these days, but all are not created equally, so you really need to weed through the reviews to find the best ones. We’ve found our sleep so incredibly improved since using the Baloo 15 pound blanket, that we will be gifting it to anyone in our lives who could use an extra hug while they sleep.
We love CBD as much as the next ex pot smoker, but we never thought to put it in our bath. Turns out hemp/ CBD is known to soothe and nourish skin, and relieve muscle and joint pain when used topically. We love these little break apart bath bomb cubes, and are planning to make some gift baskets using one of these in each!
S/he loves plants, gardening, and the earth – what better little stocking stuffer than this sweet enamel pin?
Because choosing vegan should be obvious in this day and age, but if it’s not – this gentle reminder to eat plants will help. Plus, all proceeds benefit the beautiful work of Farm Sanctuary.
What makes these slippers extra adorable is that they come in Mama Bear, Papa Bear, Baby Bear, Sister Bear, Brother Bear, etc! We’d love to see a pair of these in numerous stockings in a Norman Rockwell painting!
We dane to argue that matching family pajamas (yes, that includes the dog/s) are more holiday photo worthy than your Christmas dinner best. These soft Charlie Brown themed PJ’s are sweeter than taffy in your teeth.
Cooler than your Momma’s sweat suit, this black unicorn onesie works for any gender! So comfy and stretchy, you’ll find you are always looking for excuses to put it on. Good for jumping over rainbows and rowdy horseplay. Perfect to wear year round to costume parties, school drop off, Burning Man (JK,) birthdays, bar crawls, or any celebration or festival you have planned.
Giveback Gift: This cozy cardigan in French terry is the ultimate layering piece for any femme in your life. It’s hard to get the size wrong with a comfier fit like this sweatshirt material cardigan. Sweeten the deal by knowing that this company provides meaningful employment for women recovered from sex trafficking. It was made in Nepal, one of the least developed countries in the world, which ranks high for trafficking. This design creates a bright future for the overcomer who made it.
Did you know these long, soft lounger type chairs without arms are known to sex educators as sex chairs? Neither did we! But apparently they are known for allowing for new positions when the bed isn’t cutting it. Don’t know about you, but to us it looks primed for a kombucha, bag of kale chips, and a Real Housewives reunion.
DIGITAL ZADDY & SEXY NERDS
Gomi is a range of sustainable consumer electronic products made out of non-recyclable plastic waste collected from Brighton, UK. We’re simply mad for the chic speakers that are art meets function. Perfect for your favorite style (or music) snob, these speakers come in a range of splattered art and make your tunes sound tubular.
Either s/he podcasts, or they want to one day. In the meantime – a portable microphone that clips directly on to the computer is a fantastically easy way to get started. Also – the teen in your life would love this bonus accessory to their gaming set up.
For the one in your life who has no F’s to give, gift them this mug.
Some of the noted benefits of infrared saunas include detoxification, immune support, and release of muscle ache, arthritis, joint pain, stress, and cellulite. If you are a big baller, and someone you love is a healthy homie – why not take it all the way to luxury-ville and get them an infrared sauna that they can install in or outdoors.
Hold the phone, it’s a goddamn knitting machine! You can make scarves, hats, and mittens for everyone you know, and their cats. This would make a mitzvah project for the local hospital or kids club so much easier.
There isn’t a girl in our crew who wouldn’t be pleased to have these pencils in their stocking.
You think it’s a pen, don’t you? Well – it’s not. This here is basically a tool kit in a pen-sized gadget. There’s not a person alive who couldn’t use this in their purse or pen holder! This is an easy choice for the person who has it all.
This is so damn cool, we almost can’t stand it. The Polaroid lab converts digital photos on your phone to real Polaroid prints through the Polaroid Originals app right in your very own home. Bring back the polaroid’s!! This is being buzzed as the hottest tech gift of the season, so it may take more than one shopping site to find it available for purchase.
This sustainable shirt is so soft, it feels like silk. Made from lyocell (bamboo!) these unisex shirts are a go-to for anyone on your wishlist.
When you don’t know what to get her, this is the perfect choice. A rainbow letter board that she could use over her desk or bed for inspiration (favorite quotes anyone?), lists, and love notes. It doubles as changeable art.
For your favorite dragon lover or slayer nerd, these cute candles reveal tiny porcelain dragons which are just adorable as can be! And score: There’s no need to walk into a blazing funeral pyre to hatch them.
This is the most festive little gift of all time! Get your Christmas LED lights and USB charging cable all in one with this perfect little stocking stuffer under $15 that is both useful and totally adorable.
The Enso Infinite Art board is a great way to help master mindfulness—and practice your painting skills, too! Just paint on the board with water, and then watch as your artwork magically appears. But before you become too attached to your design, it slowly fades away as the water evaporates, serving as a reminder to savor this moment in time. We love this zen gift for a workplace desk, at home, and for kids for a no-mess painting day.
We can never get enough of the fascinating adventure your DNA takes you on when it’s tested and revealed. It’s been an unbelievable adventure for us, and the best gift of our lifetime! Imagine the surprise on your racist relatives faces when they find out they are 15% Mexican!
Our holiday’s aren’t complete without a gift for our furry fam. This chic water or food bowl is customized and makes such a statement!
The dog cards in Ruby Roth’s special project for Two Trick Pony are so adorable, they’ll want to save and frame each one. What makes them an even better gift is that they are made in the USA, printed on 100% post consumer waste recycled paper, and packaged with a recycled kraft envelope in a biodegradable sleeve made from plants. All that and 5% of sales (yep, sales — not just profits!) go to an animal rescue, animal protection or vegan advocacy non-profit organization. And seriously, who couldn’t use a stockpile of cute cards in their desk drawer!
Obviously if you are a reader of this website, your pets get holiday gifts. This vegan fake fur dog bed is so comfortable, you’ll want to sleep in it yourself. Alas, you’re too big. This darling cozy spot for spot also comes in numerous sizes – from Chihuahua to Great Dane.
Kitty’s deserve a bit of modern design too, n’est pas? You can buy as many of these wooden honeycomb shelves as you like to create a design or keep it simple.
Dog DNA tests are the best, most unforgettable and thoughtful gift (as are human ones) but now they really delve into the health of your dog in addition to their exact ancestry!
These precious 100% cotton are hand crocheted dog toys created in collaboration with AATMIYA, a social enterprise that aims to provide employment opportunities to local Nepalese women in the form of dignified, skill based jobs. 100% of the profits goes to the Tiny Tim Rescue Fund, former fashion designer John Bartlett’s foundation, that raises money for independent rescue groups who are on the ground saving the lives of homeless dogs and cats across the country. The funds go to help with all expenses, including vet bills, transportation, and training.
Advocate for adoption with the Mutt Slut tank top – perfect for hitting the gym or walking the dog (under your hoodie if you don’t want comments from everyone) – proceeds from this tank support the beautiful pits at Villalobos Pitbull Rescue.
These glamorous fine net Wolford tights combine 60 hand-applied, sparkling Swarovski® crystals. If you’ve never put on a pair of Wolford tights, it may be better off since they ruin you for all normally priced hosiery. The elegance, luxury, and comfort is just on another level, which make them the perfect holiday gift. The sole, heel and panty section are free from crystals to ensure optimal comfort, along with the wide waistband.
Level her up from the old school hoops to these stunning peaceful golden girls which will match with everything she wears.
This is a twofer! Not many of us have a full vanity area with white fluffy stool and 50’s movie star lights, those of us in apartments tend to do our make up standing over the sink. Instead of that, why not drag your make up to your desk and leave a good vanity mirror there regularly. It’s our new go-to and feels as luxe as a fancy bathroom vanity. Ah, what a joy – sitting while applying make up!
Cabooooodler! Nothing is as throwback, and nothing will make any person in your life happier than this under the tree or menorah or kwanza décor. An 8 year old could put crafts, legos, or markers in one of these – but a 43 year old can also put her maquillage supplies in here so that whenever she does her mascara she sings “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” to herself.
Charlotte Tilbury to make up wearing hip chicks in 2019 is what MAC was to make up wearing hip chicks in 1994 – indispensable. This sweet set is a perfect pale pink that they’ll wear daily.
Did she just say personalized wines? Why, yes she did. Your recipient will receive a box of four-premium select California single-varietal wines, along with a pipette and flask – kind of like chemistry class. Whichever combination most suits your favorite wino, they just upload their signature recipe, and Blendtique will handcraft and bottle their very own wine – replete with a perfect label personalized with a photo, logo, or one of their easy to use templates.
Cult vegan parfum house Le Labo is on the shelves of everyone in fashion, but their Thé Noir 29′ massage oil is proven to elevate your life in the sheets. Get this for a lover, or someone who could use a boost in the sack.

Perfect with any outfit, this galaxy gazing clutch also goes cross body – making it the perfect holiday bag.
This blown-glass cloisonné ornament evokes a stained-glass lampshade in The Met collection in the Poppy pattern, made by Tiffany Studios about 1902–18. Its bright petals will add a lively pop of color to your holiday décor, and blow away the chic septuagenarian in your family.
LITTLE HANDS AND FEETS
We aren’t sure it’s fair to buy just one child in your life this customizable guitar when they are all so deserving of this level of badass cool.
Your little feminist needs to know their roots! Get to the thick of it with these perfect message tees.
Between their rapid growth and regular destruction of cloth fibers, kids always need new clothes – but balk at getting them as gifts. Solve that with a super comfy, but cool, pair of eco fleece sweatpants in a fun print. These are genderless, and come in adult sizes too, heads up.
Books are always welcome to all kids and parents! Check out our list of favorite books for under age 6 here, and our favorites for elementary school students age 7-12 here.
We just attended the magical and sweet premiere of Elf Pets: A Fox Cub’s Christmas Tale here in NYC hosted by our friends The Moms with author (and Elf On The Shelf originator) Chanda Bell, and we can promise you – the artic fox (and book/ dvd) will be on every kids wishlist this holiday season! We know after our kids saw the movie, they put the artic fox on the top of their list.. and they are Jews.
You will want to build this, but so will s/he. How. Frigging. Cool. Is. This. Yoda.

We could buy this for any child on our holiday list and it would be a win.
All the Avenger addicts at GGA HQ want this Marvel infinity gauntlet – especially the under 13 set.
FOODIES AND GASTRONIMISTS
If budget is a thing to laugh at, then you must buy them a Nenohi Nenox knife if they love to cook. This is the Rolex of Knives, and anyone in the know will ooh and ahh over one as you chop away in the kitchen, or open this under a flaming menorah.
Lagusta’s ethical hand made chocolates never fail to amaze, and this fall bar is no different. The gift wrap, elegant options, and ethos (vegan, woman-owned, small company, feminist-run, organic, fair trade, et all!) behind this company make it our go-to for all chocolate sending – year long.
The wine advent calendar is so expected.. how about a hot sauce advent for your favorite spicy babe? Done.
Maple Cream. CREAM! Ahhhh.. any hostess would squeal at receiving this. Try this vegan divinity on a great piece of toast, and be a lifelong convert.
Marmalade Paddington would approve of, Tiptree Jam is as old as England itself (sort of) and as revered. Sure, these sweet spreads are full of sugar, but they are a treat in the classic vibe of the holidays that would be a lovely addition to any wintery breakfast nook!
Could there be anything as personal and meaningful as a cutting board laser cut with a recipe in Mom or Grandma’s handwriting? We think not. Talk about a gift that will bring them to tears..
This beautiful trumpet-shaped flower is not only edible and delicious, it is believed help support cardiovascular health as well. The tart flavor is similar to a dried cranberry, and spooned over ice cream or poured in a sparkling wine, it adds a delightful refreshing berry flavor. What a perfectly affordable – but extremely impressive – hostess gift (instead of the expected bottle of wine) for the holiday party season!
Perhaps instead of sending flowers, consider pie. The fanciest chef in the world, Jean-Georges, is offering an equally fancy vegan apple pay for merely $68 dollars this holiday season. Git it while you can.

Now you can learn the art of reading tea leaves – or coffee grounds – with this beautifully designed facsimile of an Edwardian fortune telling cup and saucer, paired with Jane Lyle’s expert book as your guide. Reading tea leaves is a traditional divinatory method and this kit allows you to make predictions for yourself and your friends, explaining the meaning of over 200 of the signs and symbols you’ll find in your cup. The explanations accompanying these signs and symbols allow you to relate them to real events and future possibilities, providing clear insights: a heart near the rim of the cup means that love is not far away; a horse indicates the need for strength and patience; a cake may signify a celebration or a party. So, drink a cup and see what the leaves have to say about your future.
