Etched Skyline Glasses, $39.99 | “I love these glasses with the cities where my sister (Raleigh) and brother (Greenville) live. They’re fun and classic and are the perfect item to toast the new year.”
Spicewalla 18-Pack Collection, $84.99 | “My husband is the foodie of the family and seasons all our meals to perfection. This spice set has everything he will need — and the canisters’ design will make our pantry look much more organized.”
Parakeets Note Pad, $15 | “This pretty notepad would elevate all my to-do items. It combines two things I love — birds and making lists. I would love to receive this as a stocking stuffer.”
Rhododendron Sunset Print, $40 | “This landscape print has vibrant colors and is the perfect size for a small space on the wall.”
Glamorous Wash Laundry Detergent, $28.68 | “I’ve read about how good this laundry detergent smells but the only way I would ever try it is if I got it for a gift. I’m trying to invest more in classic wardrobe staples so this might prompt me to to be more gentle with my clothes (and make doing laundry a little bit more exciting!).”
LED Light Wall-Mounted Jewelry Organizer, $119.95 | “I tend to stick my jewelry in drawers, purses, and other places where necklaces get tangled or earrings are lost. I would love to be able to have a way to organize all my pieces — and that full-length mirror is great for seeing what works with outfits.”
Espresso Martini Ornament, $13.99 | “I love gifting fun ornaments as a memorable way to mark occasions and celebrations. My friend and I love to catch up over fancy cocktails, and this ornament will be a cute gift for her.”
Blaze Your Own Trail Trophy, $32 | “The positive message on this gift is great for anyone, because we all have bad days. The symbol of the equestrian on a horse is a reminder that we make our own way in the world! Innovative just like Winston-Salem.”
All-Natural Soy Wax Candle, $14.95+ | “I love a good wax candle. It’s environmentally sustainable and great as colder months approach.”
Explore More Bandana, $38 | “I love this because I love exploring new things to do around my city. This bandana reminds me to find the beauty in Winston-Salem and discover new things to do.”
“A Year of Us” Couple’s Journal, $8.83 | “Prompted journals are such a great way to connect, whether it’s for couples or solo. They get me excited about the little things in life and finding joy everyday — plus these questions are fun.”
Bonsenkitchen Handheld Milk Frother, $5.68 | “Ok — this is something I’ve always wanted, but probably would never buy for myself. Great gifts for coffee lovers who can make at-home lattes or fancy coffee if they desire.”

Brianna: “I’ve recently ditched the purse for a fanny pack to go totally hands-free while walking around town, which is why I’m eyeing these colorful fanny packs from Burlaep. (Pair it with this cute embroidered baseball cap and you’ve got a perfect city ‘fit.)”
