1. The Little Market
For a gift that gives back in more ways than one, opt for a bundle from The Little Market. This non-profit organization (co-founded by Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla) is dedicated to the economic self-sufficiency of women worldwide through dignified income opportunities. Each item is made following fair trade principles, ultimately contributing to a life-changing sustainable income and giving back to the people who made it. The Little Market’s With Love Gift Set is a thoughtful way to surprise a special colleague or sibling. You can customize this package (and most of The Little Market’s sets) by switching up the object or candle scent to your liking.
2. Valleybrink Road
Industry insider Melissa Akkaway of The Particulars and The Nice Pack loves gifting clients and friends something from Valleybrink Road. “I love VBR because you can pair most gift boxes with a bottle of hand-selected wine,” she tells THR. VBR box pricing ranges from $100 to $300; we opted for the Essential Home box for its decadent treats and overall festive flair.
3. Pottery Barn
For a furry friend in your life, opt for one of few gift baskets on Pottery Barn dedicated to pups. This festive red bin is filled with squeaky toys, tug ropes and tasty treats for a Good Boy.

5. Simone LeBlanc
Akkaway is also a big fan of Simone LeBlanc‘s unique curated bundles. “I love SL because she offers her own branded candles and leather goods, plus [gift boxes] are packed in a reusable wooden box.” For this round-up, we went for this Flora Foodie basket, which holds a collection of floral and herbal-infused items — perfect for the self-care star in your world. From custom-dried florals and natural ruby chocolate to house-blend ginger oat granola and chamomile citrus tea, this bundle is a true artisanal experience for stylish foodies and beyond.
