In my opinion there are gifts that are universally appealing, gifts that make pleasing an easy task. How could you go wrong with a mug? And a scarf? Like I mentioned before, last year I received two scarves from two of my best friends and I wore them throughout the whole season. Pj's are another crowd pleaser, who doesn't love pretty and comfy sets or leggings? I have this pair from Madewell and I always get tons of compliments when they make an appearance on Instagram, they are old but J.Crew has an identical one ;) I also love giving books, hand lotion (so practical!), and a nice candle, especially when they come in a cool jar that can later be put to a different use.
MUGS: Coffee drinkers, tea drinkers, or non caffeine addicted people, mugs are always useful!
