Suann's Holiday Gift Guide—Favorite Picks from our Founder

The holiday season is my favorite time of year. I love the festivities, decorating, and finding the perfect gift for loved ones. All year I save and bookmark gift ideas so that when the holiday season arrives, I have tons of inspiring options. Today, I’m sharing a few gift guides to highlight what I’m looking forward to gifting this year—from Appointed classics to other brands I admire. Let’s get to it.

 

For Teachers

Each year I select a few thoughtful gifts for my children's teachers as a small token of our appreciation for their important work. This year, along with a few accessories, I'll be filling our Card Keeper with greeting cards from a few of my favorite stationery brands so they can enjoy beautiful stationery organized and ready at a moment's notice.

 (1—Card Keeper; 2—Monogrammed Pouch; 3—Wax Seal Set; 4—Special Edition Workbook; 5—Everywhere Mug)

 

For Teens 

My teenager may be the hardest to shop for, but here are a few things I've bookmarked that I suspect my music-loving, bibliophile teen will enjoy.

 (1—Notebooks; 2A5 Journal; 3—Everywhere Backpack; 4—Tumbler; 5—Retro Stripe Socks; 6—Turntable)

 

For Kids 

Our daughter is the easiest to shop for—she loves anything bright and colorful. I love the simple, elevated twist on each of these everyday items. 

 (1—Notebook Set; 2—Cooking Set; 3—Sweatshirts; 4—Everyday Pad; 5Stamp Set

 

For Him 

I usually keep an eye out for unique running or travel gear for my husband. This year, he'll be unwrapping a few of these beautiful yet functional gifts.

 (1—Playing Cards; 2—Carry-on Suitcase; 3—Running Shirt; 4—Fountain Pen; 5—Appointed for New York Times)

 

I hope these festive picks inspire you to make the most of the season. Here's to a happy, safe holiday with loved ones. Cheers!
—Suann Song, Founder + CEO
