Sarah Flint Natalie Flat
After wearing them on several occasions (at the 2017 Invictus Games and the 2018 Anzac Day service, for example), it's safe to say that Meghan Markle is a super fan of Sarah Flint shoes. The brand's Natalie flat is especially cute and comfortable, and comes in a limited edition gold shade that's perfect for the holidays.

Madewell Band Stripe Blanket Scarf
Will they be traveling for the holidays? Gift them a blanket scarf to keep them cozy on the plane ride. Markle won't travel without one! In a previous post on her blog, the Tig, she wrote, "I never travel without a scarf or thin cashmere blanket that feels like a hug. Throw it in your purse or backpack, and no matter how far you travel, you will always feel comforted both on and off the plane with something that feels and smells like home."

Stow Personalized Amber Orange First Class Leather Tech Case
Another travel must-have according to the royal jet setter? This leather tech case that Markle has been spotted toting through the airport on multiple occasions. It features a power bank with a multicable, a 32GB memory stick, and handy slots for all your IDs and travel documents. Sure, it's a pretty pricey gift, but they'll definitely thank you when they don't have to fight for an outlet at the airport.

Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Cologne
"Fragrance is my favorite thing, so much so that if I leave the house and I don’t put any on, I’ll turn around and go back home," Meghan Markle once told U.K.'s Express, naming Jo Malone's Wild Bluebell fragrance as one of her favorite scents. The floral scent with white musk would make the sweetest wedding-day fragrance.

Everlane the Day Market Tote in Cognac
Markle made her public debut with Prince Harry toting a classic carry-all by Ever Lane at the Invictus Games back in 2017. A great gift to give your maid of honor (who'll have a million and one things to bring to the wedding), this tote is large enough to carry all the necessities, but still manages to appear polished thanks to its gorgeous Italian leather structure.

Diptyque Mini Candle Set
On her sadly now-defunct Instagram page, Markle used to give fans a peek into her home which was styled with Diptyque candles. With their sophisticated scents, the candles create a warm and delightfully fragranced atmosphere and make for an ultraluxe holiday gift.

Baublebar Peacemaker Ring
Also before deleting her Instagram (RIP), Markle would often snap selfies wearing this unique gold ring from Baublebar. The glittering vines delicately wrap around fingers for an ultracool look. And as blingy as this golden sparkler is, it retails for only $42, making it an inexpensive (but totally gorgeous) gift.

Yoga Zeal Marble Print Yoga Mat
Markle is an avid yogi (her mom even teaches!), and we're sure she did plenty of downward facing dogs to deal with all the stress leading up to her royal wedding. Well, if it's good enough for, Meghan.... This high-density cushioned mat is the perfect present for anyone dealing with some pre-wedding stress.

Rumor has it that Prince Harry would often send Meghan Markle her favorite bloom—peonies—when they first started dating. The now-duchess even shared photo of a bouquet with the caption, “Swooning over these,” with the hashtag, #spoiledrotten," before she deleted her Instagram.
When in doubt, a bouquet of flowers is always an Instagram-able gift, especially when full of lush blooms like Markle's favorite peonies, roses, or ranunculus like this gorgeous bundle from the Bouqs Co. The company even offers flower subscriptions, making it easy to gift your loved one multiple deliveries of fresh flowers throughout the year.

The Motivation Manifesto by Brendon Burchard
"Annoyed by your self-doubt and distractions?" Markle previously wrote on the Tig. "The noise that keeps you from reaching your potential? Okay, so yeah. Me too. Even on my most Sasha Fierce days there’s a mean little voice in there going, 'Hmmm...I’m not sure if you can, or should, or if you’re good enough to.' "
While it's hard to imagine the ever-confident Duchess of Sussex ever having self-doubts, she claims that reading The Motivation Manifesto helped her get past them. Written by a high-performance trainer, the book explains how readers can find their personal power through declaring intentions and battling through insecurities. Can you think of a sweeter stocking stuffer?

A bottle of wine is a great never-fail gift for your holiday hostess—but what makes this one extra special is that it's Meghan Markle's absolute favorite. She loves it so much, she even named her blog after it. “Tignanello is a full-bodied red wine that I tried about seven years ago,” she said. “In wine circles, it is nicknamed ‘Tig.’ It was my first moment of getting it—I finally understood what people meant by the body, structure, finish, legs of wine. The Tig is my nickname for me getting it. Not just wine, but everything," Markle wrote on her now-defunct site.

Fitbit Ionic: Adidas edition
It's no secret that the Duchess of Sussex is the queen of fitness. "My health, my state of mind, the feeling you have after a workout; all of this things drive me to step onto my mat or go to the gym," she previously told Women's Health. "Sometimes the idea of working out sounds absolutely dreadful, but I always remind myself of how good it will feel afterward. Euphoric, almost."
She added, "Running has always been my form of moving meditation, which I relish because it allows me to get out of my head." While we're not sure it would go with her engagement or wedding ring, we could still totally see Markle jogging around Kensington Gardens with a Fitbit on her wrist. Gift this one to fitness-minded friends—it's loaded with on-screen workouts, and can track your heart rate, sleep patterns, and workouts, play music, sync with your iOS and apps, and so much more.
