Emilie Kyle

With several upcoming holidays, travel is right around the corner! If you're traveling to visit family or friends, you'll want to be remembered as a gracious guest. Looking for a simple bottle of wine for dinner (look for suggestions in next week's post) or something to show your thanks for several days of being welcomed in? We found these thoughtful gifts we'd love to give as much as receive!

We are an affiliate of some of the products we've listed here and have had great experiences with products from these companies. We hope you will, too!

This is the perfect way to add some classic style and glam to your Gatsby-obsessed friend's bar cart. 

Boll & Branch  Luxury Throw  $125

Boll & Branch Luxury Throw $125

When we heard about Boll & Branch's mission to deliver ethically-sourced organic cotton luxury linens manufactured by fairly-treated and -paid workers, we jumped for joy and immediately partnered with them. There's nothing better than affordable luxury, and Boll & Branch wins in every category. This is a gift you can feel really good about giving.

West Elm  Molly M Nest Coasters  $45

Metallic leather patterns created from AutoCad and made in the USA? Yes, please! This is the perfect gift for your favorite architect or design-savvy friend. 

Saks 5th Avenue  GiGi New York Jewelry Roll  $88

Saks 5th Avenue GiGi New York Jewelry Roll $88

Your favorite jet-setter will love this jewelry roll that has several pockets and a snap strap for delicate rings. Available in three colors, we love that this American-made leather case can be personalized with a monogram.

Amazon  Well Fed 2  $24.95

Amazon Well Fed 2 $24.95

Finally, give this cookbook to your friend or family member who swears Thanksgiving will be the last hurrah before really hitting the gym and eating healthier. This is also a great gift for yourself if you like eating real, whole foods and want some new ideas to incorporate into your meal plans. Having made most of the recipes myself, I can attest that this cookbook is a great introduction to Paleo cooking with Whole30 and AIP adaptions. Wrap it up with a ribbon and a wooden spoon for your Thanksgiving chef!
