We are pumped to have the hella gorgeous and hysterical actress (and former editor-in-chief of The TIG) Meghan Markle as a guest contributor to curate gift guide for gals. Now you have zero excuse for a crap gift for your better half. This article was originally published on December 8, 2014.

pencil

I am a lover of a handwritten note, and every year I treat myself to new stationary. To receive a monogrammed set with my favorites pens or these precious pencils would be the most thoughtful and sweet gift. G. Lalo has always been my favorite company (ever since I used to teach calligraphy, gift wrapping, and book binding at The Paper Source in Beverly Hills during my audition days several years ago). Their boxed sets with envelopes are lovely and the weight of the paper feels luxe.

Lior Spice Box

Lior Lev Sercarz is a master spice sommelier and his blends step up your cooking game. I would love this set or the voyager selection, which is less expensive but still provides flavor profiles worthy of Michelin chefs.

Soma

Obsessed with this chic and practical water filter by Soma— worthy of sitting on a dinner table for entertaining.

Rosetta stone

I am dying to relearn French, and then make my way into Italian for my travels. Rosetta Stone always works wonders so this is high on my list.

cami nyc

I love these easy silk blouses by Cami NYC that have great attention to detail and look effortlessly sexy (the lace-back one is beyond pretty)

lucas paw paw

Lucas Paw Paw is one product I have never tried and always hear incredible things about. Plus, it speaks to my love of all things Aussie (another place I am dying to visit).
