What Does the Lioness Team Want for the Holidays?

At Lioness, we’ve been busy writing gift guides to help you find the right items for those on your shopping list. We had so much fun with those guides, in fact, that we wondered – what do we all want for the holidays? This 2023 holiday gift guide has everything from coffee to cat beds and travel items to gaming and documentaries.

Bobbie is heading to Germany (and Amsterdam, NL) to visit her kid for the holidays, so she wants a nice laptop bag for the trip.

Nat would like a subscription to Curiosity Stream to watch documentaries whenever he wants.

Bonnie needs to protect her knitting projects with a zippered bag like this one after her new puppy destroyed all of her projects, ruined a ball of yarn and devoured bamboo knitting needles. While we’re shopping, let’s change that monthly Bark Box order to heavy chewer.

Aaron is hoping for a basketball hoop. He wants to shoot baskets with his friends and get his family outside to play ball.

Alicia asked for body scrub to help her relax after a busy day. She also included packing cubes on her wish list to stay organized while traveling.

Alyssa would like a machine-washable bag to hold her yoga mat and other items as she goes through her day. Personally, she’s eyeing the grayish-brown design.

Ari really likes Storyworth, which she got for her father last year. She would like everyone to know about this great tool to record family stories.

Emily enjoys travel and tiny travel items. This Work from Anywhere kit is on her holiday gift list. So she’s always prepared for the opportunity to visit someplace new.

Kelly would like a well-structured, stylish planner to keep her busy days organized. She’s planning on this one from Day Designer. 


Laura enjoys shopping for cat toys and accessories (actually, a lot of us on the team do!). She’d like a banana-shaped cat bed for her adorable cat/roommate, Peanut.

Liam added the Playdate to his gift list. It’s a great handheld indie electronic gizmo by Panic, the software and game company based in Portland, OR.


Phoebe wants a pair of HOKA ONE ONE women’s running shoes. She recently attended a conference, and so many people were wearing them. Hopefully, they’re as comfy as they look.

Ray is a talented artist as well as a writer, and his gift list includes a pair of Fiskars scissors that will last a long time. Some raspberry hibiscus tea would also be a delicious treat. 

Suzanne, that’s me. My perfect gift is having all my kids and their partners home during the holidays. I want to play games and watch them laugh together over a great cup of coffee, maybe in a mug by artist Mary Rich.
