One of my favorite brands is Cuyana. The quality is amazing and I love their motto of fewer, better pieces. I think at least one piece has been on almost every gift guide I’ve put together!
I own all of these items and recommend them over and over both for yourself or as a gift.
6 Cuyana Pieces I Love & Recommend
ONE // Travel Case Set: While all of these pieces make a great gift, the travel set in particular favorite of mine to give. It’s gorgeous, especially monogrammed, and is something people may not want to spend money on themselves. Cuyana occasionally has free monogramming events.
The blush and grey are my favorite colors. There are two cases in the set. I use the larger one for my makeup and sometimes Sybil will take the smaller one for her toiletries when we travel. She loves to match!
Fun fact – I bought my set when I was pregnant with Sybil on a trip to LA with my girlfriend. It always reminds me of that trip and being pregnant with my baby girl.
TWO // Panama Hat: I got the panama hat for Mother’s Day three years ago. It’s still a summer staple for me. I have packed it in my suitcase for vacations and it did get a tear on the top. It hasn’t stopped me from wearing it though!
THREE // Cardholder: I no longer carry a full wallet so this cardholder has become my every day “wallet”. It has enough space for my driver’s license, 2-3 credit cards, insurance cards and the little cash that I carry. If you’re giving as a gift, I recommend monogramming it for an extra touch. Mine says MOM on it and I’ve surprisingly received more compliments than I can count!
FOUR // Classic Leather Zipper Tote: I own both the classic leather tote in black and the zipper tote in grey. I used them as diaper bags when Lawson and Sybil were newborns. They are both unstructured totes so if you prefer your bags to hold their shape, these would not be for you. Cuyana has a tote organization insert if you want more interior pocket and organization.
I liked the zipper tote for traveling so I didn’t have stuff falling out everywhere. I don’t use them often these days, but they are classic totes that I plan to keep and know I’ll pull out again. If I worked in an office environment, I’d definitely use these totes for my everyday work bag.
FIVE // Lightweight Cashmere Scarf: The cashmere scarf is on the higher end, but would make such a beautiful gift. It’s lightweight enough to use in warmer months. I always bring it with me when we travel for cold airplanes or cooler nights. I’ve also worn it in winter wrapped around and it’s kept me cozy. I have it in the navy, which is gorgeous.
SIX // Tech Case: This is the latest addition to my Cuyana collection. I’ve struggled with how to transport all of the necessary chargers when we travel (Apple Watch, laptop, iPhone, iPad). It’s a pet peeve of mine if everything doesn’t have a designated place in my bag! I am very excited to use it on our next trip whenever that may be.
