Huckabone's Holiday Hot List

The best gift ideas from PJ's most stylish employees.

Huckabone's Holiday Hot List

Making a list and checking it twice! We put our PJ team to the test and asked them: What is your favorite holiday gift? From kid-friendly and pet toys to the best-smelling-candle-ever and chic coffee table books, we have a gift for all ages and stages. 

With Phillip Jeffries very own Mr. Todd Huckabone, Director of North American Sales, in mind, we compiled our best selling holiday gifts  below.

Happy Gifting to All!

Phillip-Jeffries-HolidayFlatlay-Wallcovering355x533pxA CLOSE SHAVE
One of my favorite gifts for gifts for the guys is this Harry's Shaving Kits! You can choose the razor handle color of your choice, the blades give a nice close shave and I love the shave cream! This set is for $19.99 on (gifts a % to a charity of your choice). Just search Harry's Razors for Men or check out the link! - Mike Sand

Art books are my "go to." I give them to clients, family, & friends. Currently under my Christmas tree are Private Gardens of Santa Barbara and Big Shots. Both are well priced too! Also, this list of cookbooks. -- Craig Boelson

I’m getting all the ladies in my life the Pura Smart Diffuser this year! You can control from an app and has a nightlight that you can custom color and dim 💡💚❤️ Allsssooo - you can set it to turn on and off when you leave the house from the app! And so many fragrances to choose from. - Jessica McAuley

One of the best gifts for someone who travels is an AWAY suitcase. It is can fit more than you can imagine including multiple pairs of shoes and is still a carry on! It has a built in battery so you can charge your devices while traveling. They give you a 100 day trial period from the time you purchase it. If don't like it, you can return or exchange it. You also get a limited lifetime warranty. An essential for a quick trip or a week long stay somewhere! - Brigg Klein, Chicago Showroom Manager

I bought these for my soon to be mother and sister-in-law last year: Cuyana Leather travel case set, $120Great for travel or to keep your work bag/life organized while on the road all day :) - Sara Glaviano, Chicago outside sales representataive

I love gifting this book to others, there's a little something for everyone. Half Baked Harvest has simple comfort food recipes. Great
for this winter season!  - Melissa Vargas, Chicago Showroom

HOTEL-INSPIRED CANDLESPhillip-Jeffries-HolidayFlatlay2-355x533px
Have you ever walked into hotel or a spa & it has its own signature scent? Like Mike
Sand said below, one of my favorite holiday gifts is receiving candles. Although I LOVE anthropology Blue Volcano- you GOTTA try Aroma 360- We have this signature scent in our design park where the South Florida showroom is located, This scent is also located in all the Edition Hotels! Black Velvet Candle | Hotel Scents - Aroma360 - They also sell diffusers and room sprays! You can also pair this with a comfy throw blanket; curl up on your couch & enjoy the ambiance! It's a MUST have! ❤️ - Renee Indell

I have gifted these colourful Le Crueset stoneware mugs a couple times including for myself ;) For a while now, Costco has had a variety pack of 6 colours on sale for an incredible deal. - Laura Smith

For the littles in your life! These cozy Garnet Hill slipper boots are made from natural boiled wool, are super soft and never itchy. The soles are finished with latex dots to keep from slipping. One of my favorite gifts to give! Practical and fun! - Tammy Couture

The Steam Soapery is a cute boutique near me that sells the best homemade soaps, fragrances, skincare products, bath salts, and more! You can buy from them online, and orders ship free over $100: The same owners have a couple other shops in Chester that are cute and have the best gifts! I plan on visiting all three of their stores this weekend to get ahead (is this still possible?) of my holiday shopping. Wish me luck!! - Julie Falcetano

I enjoy giving forcing bulbs such as paperwhites or amaryllis during the holiday season. It's fun to think of the recipient and their aesthete when putting the package together. Glass containers, pebbles, rustic pots, bulb forcing vases, sometimes just a bag of beautiful bulbs with a ribbon if they are the kind of person already inclined towards indoor gardening. Bulbs and "kits" are readily available this time of year through local garden centers, on-line vendors and even big box stores although it's more fun to curate your own package. - Lisa Schofield

This is one of my favorite books to give: One Line A Day! You answer a question each day and then the next year you answer the same question...and then so on for 5 years. At the end of 5 years you get to see how you life changed and how you may answer things differently as you get older. I have one from a few years ago (when my life was boring) so I always think about doing it again! - Jodi Trautman

I happen to love Panettone and especially during the holidays. I saw this beautifully wrapped chocolate Panettone at Trader Joe's last weekend. I replaced the ribbon with our pretty PJ ribbon and for $11.99 think this is a great deal for a drop off gift for clients that need a little PJ love! - Teri McIntyre

For anyone who cooks, here is something you may not know about but won't know how you ever lived without one ... a Suribachi Bowl. It's basically a Japanese mortar and pestle, but it's a ceramic bowl, the interior is unglazed ceramic with ridges you can grind or mix anything against with the wooden Surikogi. I use it all the time for quick salad dressings, sauces, flavored sugars or salts, and to grind dried herbs, seeds or pods. The edge of the bowl has pour spouts so you won't make a mess when using it with liquids. They come in various sizes but can be found for as little as $10 to several hundred dollars for a hand made artisan design. - Collette Gallagher

We received Bark Box from a friend when we brought home our new puppy and he loved it! It's a great idea for your own pet or to give as a gift. You can choose from a one time purchase or set up a monthly shipment to give your pet something to look forward to! The boxes start at $23 and are customized with themed toys and treats. I also love these funny teeth toys for dogs. We're getting some to put in our puppy's stocking. - Crystal Brown

My all time forever favorite book is a wonderful gift for adults and children which includes charming illustrations also by the author, Charlie Mackesy, and life lessons and reminders like being kind. - Carolyn Mair

I discovered Bonnie & Bud when I saw that a Charlotte, NC designer (Charlotte Lucas) was gifting them to her clients. It's a curated gifting collection with several different categories, founded by a local gal in NC. The company motto is "the timeless art of the occasion". Each one I send has received rave reviews, and there is everything from home, cocktail, gratitude, foodie, gentleman, miniatures, winter wonderland, pampered, breakfast, celebrate and the list goes on...Bonnie + Bud is inspired by the gifts of love, generosity, and gratitude passed down to us by our grandmother, Bonnie, and our Uncle Bud. They live by the credo that there is great beauty in simplicity and that giving to others is the truest form of Southern hospitality. Merry + Bright Holidays – Bonnie + Bud ( - Angie Dolan

Cheese Board and Knife Set - Large Charcuterie Board Serving Platter - Unique Christmas Present, Gift for Wedding, Housewarming, Bridal Shower, Birthday Gifts for Mom - Ashley Eagan

Our family has lots of furry kiddos and we are all walkers, but it gets dark so early so I gifted these sweet LED collars. They also have leashes that light up, but was not as impressed with the quality. The collars you just slip on over their regular one. Affordable, fun and practical. Hohoho🎅🏻 BSEEN LED Dog Collar Light - USB Rechargeable Light Up Puppy Collar, TPU Cuttable Glowing Dog Necklace for Small Medium Large Dogs - Kerry McKabe

As a kid-less lady - I was at a loss as to what to get the toddlers and little kids in my life but I am actually super excited about what I ended up getting them! I may or may not have already played with some of these before wrapping... (the Hover Ball is the most fun and made me laugh SO much!) - Ryan Mora

Hover Ball

Panda Drum


Fort Builder

Shashibo Cube

Amanda Lindroth's Island wrapped glassware is always a go to gift of mine! Also, a bit of a splurge...but Weezie robes are worth every penny! who doesn't love a robe?! - Meghan Davis

I'm a huge fan of Scandinavian brand ACNE Studios and they have a wide array of beautiful, warm and timeless scarves that make the perfect gift for a loved one! I'm not sure why this link shows "women's scarves" because these are definitely suited for everyone! Happy Holidays! - Setsuko Hara

Perfect for the pajama lovers in your life! Lake Pajamas - Caroline Taylor

For wine lovers Wolffer Estate Summer-in-a-Bottle available in white and rose. Bottle is beautifully decorated makes an impressive Holiday Gift. - Linda Ritchie
