Every year when I’m searching for gifts for loved ones, I often look at the things I use most. What do I love that I think others in my life will find useful, too? It’s usually those items that prove to be the best gifts because I have firsthand experience knowing just how wonderful they are. One of the brands that I continually go to when looking to find the perfect gift is Cuyana. They’re one of my personal favorite brands (you’ve seen them here on the blog many times), and every single person who I’ve gifted an item from Cuyana ends up loving it (and buying themselves even more goodies from the brand). Instead of listing out my “wish-list” from Cuyana, which is basically their whole site, I wanted to share the four items from them that I use every single week (with most of them being used every day), which would all make for a perfect gift this year.
Cuyana has the best scarves. A scarf was actually my first piece from the brand, as well as the first item I also gifted (to my mother). Since then, it’s become one of my favorite items to buy for others. They have a small selection of scarves, ranging from alpaca to cashmere and silk. Each one will become your new favorite! I almost always have mine (this soft pink alpaca one) with me- it’s great to keep around the office if I get cold and nice to have when traveling for an extra light layer.
I use my Cuyana laptop sleeve every single day. Thomas bought it for me for Christmas one year after being horrified how I carried my laptop everywhere without any protection. Since then, I can’t remember the last time I didn’t have it with me. I love how you can personalize each one to make it that much more special and unique, which is so nice when gifting. It also comes in black, stone and a beautiful wine color.
I’ve given and received more Cuyana items than I can remember. Another gift I got from the brand was my tassel keychain that my friend Carly bought me for my birthday. She had it engraved with my initials, too. It was right after we had moved to Charleston, when we bought our first house, so it happily held the keys to our new home. This is another item that I use every single day, and I must also mention how nice the tassel is because I can always find it right away in my bag!
The last item is actually a set- these two travel bags that come together. I have two sets of these, one I bought for myself and the other was a gift. I use one set as my makeup/beauty bags and another set to carry accessories and other items when traveling. As I look over at my bathroom, I actually have three sitting atop my counter…one big one with my makeup in it, a small one filled with jewelry that I always travel with and another small one filled with my favorite lipsticks. They come in a variety of pretty colors, like red, burgundy, olive and navy.
Thank you to Cuyana for sponsoring this post.
