Howdy y’all! I’m Jen & I blog over at Jennifer Leigh’s Blog. I’m super excited for Julie to have me on the blog today since This Gal Cooks is one of my personal favorites! One thing you will often find on my blog is my always-evolving lust list. I’ll admit it, I’m a shopaholic, so I’m always lusting after something (or some things), but since right now is the holiday season, I’ve decided to turn this in to a lust list for different price points so you can use it as a gift guide. And, in the honor of this guest post on a food blog, I’ve included some foodie gifts on top of my usual clothes/accessories/random things.

So, here’s my lust list / holiday  gift guide for every price point! By the way, this list is totally made of Etsy finds, so every item here will support small businesses and/or artisans.

Let’s start with $5 or less. These make great gifts for co-workers or any really anyone on your list who you want to get a little something for!

Oatmeal & Almond Organic Soap Vegan Exfoliating 4 oz.

How beautiful are these soaps? They come with a bow on them already so you don’t even need to spend extra on the packaging! Give your friends the gift of lusciousness!  These are made with oatmeal & almonds, so I’m sure they smell & feel incredible.

The site calls this an ornament, but you can use it for a wide variety of decorations. I would love one of these to hang in my office. They have all different states & shapes, but I’m pretty partial to the great state of Texas!



How about $15 and under?

Add this to your favorite bottle of wine & it’s sure to make an excellent gift for anyone on your list (as long as they’re 21+ of course).


Three ounce glass tumbler in Downtown Friday Night.

Soy candles last longer than regular candles so you get more bang for your buck with these babies! MAME candles have excellent reviews, so I know you’ll be getting a quality candle. They have a variety of scents, so you can pick the one which your recipient will love most!
