Every year I go into the holidays with hopes of getting everyones gifts weeks, even months in advance. But truth be told, I’m really a last minute gifter. I’ve been taking advantage of the J.Crew 30% off and bought my husband this weekender bag (which I gave to him early for our upcoming trip) and a few other things off this list. So, if you’re like me and scrambling to find the perfect last minute gifts for your guy, here are some of my favorite picks…


Wooden Cookbook Stand/ Heart Mug/ 2 Piece Bar Set/ Cocktail Shaker/ Cheese Board & Spread/ Serveware/ Apron/ ‘Happy House’ Towel/ Bow Wine Stopper/ ‘Vintage Cocktails’ Book/ Bowls/ Decanter/ Stir Sticks/ Wine Rack/ Copper Pitcher/ Salt & Pepper Mill Set/ Tumbler/ Hot Chocolate/ Pie Dish

Happy Friday everyone! This is our last weekend in San Francisco before we leave for our holiday trip next Saturday. Needless to say, we have so many things to do this weekend/get done before we leave. This week finally started to feel like the holidays after going ice skating with girlfriends, my husband’s holiday work party last night and drinking way too much hot chocolate all week.

Today’s ‘Holiday Gift Guide’ is for those of you that love to cook or know someone else who does. They’re perfect gifts for mom, grandma or even your husband if he enjoys cooking which in my case, he does. You can shop all of my kitchen picks here…

Holiday Gift Guide: At Home

Book Set/ Frame/ Note Set/ Throw/ Tea Cups/ Pajamas/ Vase/ Print of Flowers/ Eye Mask/ Matches/ Print of Lady/ Deer/ Bathrobe/ Floral Pajamas/ Pillow/ Fortune Cookie/ Candle/ Giraffe Jewelry Holder/ Kitty Slippers/ “I’ll Be Sleeping in Tomorrow” Pajamas/ Crown Ring Holder/ PJ Set/ Lipstick Holder

I would typically describe myself as a “home body”. While I love going out for drinks with the girls or heading to mid-week events, there is nothing that beats staying home with my husband and cuddling up on the couch to watch a movie. This ‘Holiday Gift Guide’ is filled with beautiful gifts for the home and comfy (and chic) lounge/sleepwear. I love for my living space to be filled with things that constantly inspire and make my days brighter. This could be through a small print, a little trinket or my favorite pillow.

If you follow me on instagram (@juliahengel) then you have probably seen me post some of my older sister’s artwork. She’s always been an incredibly talented artist and only recently started to sell her artwork on her Etsy site- Lauren Taylor Creates. The above print of the lady in the red dress is one of her pieces, but she recently launched a ‘pink camera’ series that I love! She’s offerering Gal Meets Glam readers 10% off with code: GMG10 now through December 25th and any her pieces would make for a beautiful gift to anyone!
