Welcome to The Daily Connoisseur Holiday Gift Guide for 2021.

I'm featuring the best small businesses in today's video in categories for her, for him, for kids, for home, and stocking stuffers.

The Madame Chic series makes an excellent gift for Francophiles, avid readers, and all people who want to add romance to their everyday lives. 

Connoisseur Kids is great book to gift your children. It is a book meant to be read with parent and child (although older children will be able to read it on their own) and serves as a bonding tool as you go over the basics on the importance of etiquette and manners in everyday life. 

If you are a fan of The Daily Connoisseur or know someone who is, what better gift to give than Daily Connoisseur Merch? We had an artist create new original designs for The Daily Connoisseur... 

 ... and merch for The Chic Society. You can find stickers, coffee mugs, posters, coffee tumblers, reusable water bottles and more with the Daily Connoisseur merch designs.
