My 2022 Holiday Gift Guides are here! Shop for her, him, the kids, and the foodie in your life with these ideas for holiday gifting.

  1. AGOLDE Charli Jacket: A great denim jacket is a staple in my wardrobe so this gift will get a lot of wear. 
  2. Isabel Marant Tyron Cap: This hat saves me on unclean hair days! Dressier than your usual baseball cap, this will become a well-worn staple. 
  3. Cryo De-Puffing Facial Mask: I use this IIISkin face mask whenever I need a little de-puff or just want to treat my skin to some extra self-care. Pro Tip: store these in your fridge for extra cooling benefits! 
  4. Maya Brenner Asymmetrical Initial Necklace: I have worn this necklace with Sutton and Winnie’s initials for years! The perfect customizable, sentimental gift. 
  5. Tokyo Crop Long Sleeve Tee: My daily uniform consists of high-waisted leggings and slightly cropped tops like this; you can never have too many!
  6. Roxanne Assoulin’s ‘Alphabet Soup’ Bracelet: Another great customizable gift! I have a colorful version I always wear in my bracelet stack but love the neutral look for even easier everyday wear. 
  7. Nécessaire The Body Wash (Bergamot): This is my absolute favorite scent! 
  8. Long Plaid Sherpa Shacket: As you probably know, I cannot get enough of plaid shackets! I have been loving the weight of this one plus the color is so different but still “neutral” enough to be worn with so much. 
  9. Wireless Photo Printer: While I use this mostly to print recipe photos, it is so convenient to print high-quality photos from my phone or computer at home!
  10. Chuck Taylor All Star Lift High Top Sneakers: I recently got these and have been obsessed! Bringing me back to my middle and high school days but in a modern way – love.
  11. Maison Storage Bath Caddy: This bath caddy has stayed on my gift guide for years and that’s because it’s that good! Pair this with a few bath items and a candle and you’ll have the perfect self-care gift. 
  12. Tumi Madina Cosmetic Case: I love how organized this keeps all of my cosmetics while traveling.  
  13. Free People Ruby Jacket: Another shacket that will be well-loved by your gift recipient.
  14. Ranger Station Candles: I love this Old Fashioned scent! And love even more that you can utilize this glass as a cocktail tumbler once your candle burns out. 
  15. Tumi Carson Backpack: This is my #1 travel item! It fits all of my items, including laptop, perfectly while traveling with extra room to spare. This is the perfect gift for the traveler in your life!


  1. Garnish Cocktail Picks, Set of 4: Y’all know I love a good dirty martini so of course, I am obsessed with these adorable cocktail picks to add a little fun to your drinks.
  2. Matilda Goad & Co. Cocktail Shaker: You can’t have a good cocktail without a good shaker. I just love the fun colors!
  3. The Woks Of Life Cookbook: I like to say I am The Woks of Life Chili Oil‘s #1 Fan so this family-created cookbook is one of my favorites as well. 
  4. Vitamix A2300 Ascent Series Blender: My long-time favorite blender for smoothies, blended soups and more. 
  5. Cottage Egg Crate: I love storing my eggs this way in my fridge so I can easily see know how many eggs I have left. 
  6. SideDish: My new line of multifaceted dresses makes the perfect stocking stuffer or addition to a gift basket! Shop the multipack or a 3-pack of one of the three flavors.
  7. The Siete Table: I love my Siete Family and so excited about their new cookbook full of Garza Family favorites. 
  8. KitchenAid Hand Immersion Blender: This is probably my most-used kitchen gadget. From homemade mayo to dressings and more, I use this very often in my kitchen. 
  9. Ninja Air Fryer: This is another well-loved gadget in my kitchen! While it’s great to quickly cook frozen bites for the kids, I also love frying up chicken tenders and more for myself to put over a salad with SideDish
  10. Yummly Smart Thermometer: The Yummly Smart Thermometer saves me in the kitchen! It allows me to cook my meats and seafood to my preferred temperature without any guesswork, which frees me up to create the rest of my meal, set my table, or get a jump start on cleaning the kitchen. Use code DEFINEDDISH10 for an additional 10% off. (Offer ends 12/31/2022,11:59 PM PST. See checkout for offer details.)
  11. Breville Panini Press & Grill: Weekend paninis are slowly becoming a weekend tradition at our house so this gets a lot of use. 
  12. The Defined Dish: Of course, my first cookbook needs to be on everyone’s list! This is great to pair with a few small items for a Defined Dish-themed gift. 
  13. The Comfortable Kitchen: My second book is also great to pair with my first book, “The Defined Dish,” and with other small kitchen items.
  14. Graza Oil Oil Duo: The “Drizzle” and “Sizzle” Olive Oils are well-loved in my kitchen! So loved that I became an investor in Graza, something I am very proud of. Use code THEDEFINEDDISH for $5 off your purchase!
  15. Take It Easy: Gaby has done it again with another incredible cookbook! Full of delicious, low-fuss recipes you are sure to love. 

  1. Camp High – High Street Hoody: 9/10 times I feature Clayton on my Instagram, he is wearing Camp High — I kid you not. Their clothing is all super cozy, well made, and just fun wardrobe additions!
  2. Cocktail Trivia: This is just a fun addition to your bar area. Perfect to pair with a bottle of alcohol and fun glasses or a mixer for a mixologist-themed basket.
  3. Vinyl Me Please Record of the Month Club: I’ve featured this on a few gift guides, but it is just the perfect gift for the music lover in your life. Clayton has been a member of this for years and it’s a great way to discover new artists as well as receive some classics.
  4. Vans: For the full Clayton look, pair your Camp High gear with these Vans.
  5. LALO Tequila: Our favorite tequila for sipping, ranch waters, and, of course, Clayton Margaritas! Find LALO at a store near you, deliver through Drizly, or shop online. 
  6. Elevated Craft Hybrid Cocktail Shaker: Cady swears by this shaker for perfect cold cocktails — especially Espresso Martinis. What is so great about it is, of course, how insulated it is so your hands don’t get cold while you’re shaking, but it also has measurements in the top making it easier to measure all of your ingredients and not waste any!
  7. 1000 Record Covers Book: This is great to pair with a Record of the Month Club subscription!
  8. Lava Lamp: We have a lava lamp in Clayton’s record room and it always sets a fun mood. Every guest ends up wanting to get one! 
  9. Vuori Joggers: These have become a favorite of Clayton’s!

  1. Giant Coloring Poster: These keep my girls so entertained! Pair with colored pencils, markers, or crayons and you have the perfect gift. 
  2. Junie B. Jones’s Boxed Set: I love gifting a few books to the girls each Christmas and Sutton has been loving these books! 
  3. Stand Mixer Play Set: This is just so adorable, I had to include it! Your budding baker is sure to love to have their own “tools.”
  4. Nail Polish Set: The girls love painting their nails so this set with stickers will be perfect for them. 
  5. Puffer Coat: I love shopping at Zara for my girls and think this coat is perfect for a Texas winter.
  6. Gem Art: Sutton and Winnie are loving craft projects so this one is simple enough for them to do on their own but so fun for them with all the sparkle.
  7. Dabble & Dollop Rainbow of Bubbles: These bath soaps are so fun for your kid who likes to “experiment!” You can mix the different scents in all kinds of combinations and it even includes “recipes” to create specific scents.
  8. Magnatiles: This makes the list year after year because kids, mine included, love these so much.
  9. Kid-Safe Kitchen Knives: If your kids are interested in cooking, these kid-safe knives are the perfect way to get them involved. 
  10. Bracelet Kit: Sutton’s bracelet-making phase is still going strong. This is one of her favorite ways to make bracelets!
