After many of you requested a quality petite-friendly robe, I set out on a hunt and this was a winner. The cozy material is so soft against the skin, feels luxurious, and is warm without being too heavy. Note the sleeves on XS are still a little long on someone my size so I roll them up once, but the overall proportions and shorter length is nice for petites.
If you’re looking for a robe in a waffle cotton texture instead of plush and cozy, I also wear this one regularly. I sized up to XS, and the shorter style kimono sleeves and length are a perfect fit.

2. NEIWAI (pregnancy & nursing friendly)
Use code JEAN for 15% off. Since I first shared my review of NEWAI’s extra comfy bras, I feel we’ve started a fan club here with the # of you who have happily converted!
If you’re already a fan check out their bras, check out their newer Lace Bra which has a deeper front cut. They’ve also added a Curve option for those with a band size between 37.5″-43.5” and an A-DDD cup.
You may recall the Quince cashmere dress + beanie that I featured a few times last winter. I recently tried a few new-to-me pieces from them and continue to be happy with the quality and price point. In general their cashmere is light to medium in weight, not a thick cashmere, but for the under $100 price point I do find it to be a strong value.
All their sweaters I’ve tried have been petite-friendly, including their soft alpaca sweater, duster cardigan and open cardigan. I also wanted to share this men’s cashmere hoodie that has earned high praise from friends’ husbands!
They gave me code EP5 for 5% off a first order of $100+
No more cold tea! This electric kettle (also on Amazon) has been a favorite addition to our kitchen. It looks nice on the counter, but more importantly has an adjustable temperature control dial (ranging from 135 – 212 degrees F) to keep the kettle water hot for an hour. I love that it stays hot if I forget to make my tea right away, and that I can easily go back for hot refills. If giving this as a gift, for an extra personal touch you can include a box of your favorite tea – this earl grey rooibos (caffeine free) is our household favorite!
Sweater joggers were an unexpected staple in my wardrobe last winter – so cozy for WFH, lounging or running errands. A few recommendations depending on what you’re looking for:
- Banana Republic sweater joggers (my review) are a traditional knit material in a tighter weave, in a full range of petite sizing starting in xxs petite
- Quince cashmere joggers are made of soft lightweight cashmere in regular lengths only, but the XS still works well on me due to the banded bottom
- Barefoot Dreams joggers (see on me) start in petite S and are the thickest option here in their signature plush material, similar to their popular cardigans.
Our whole family loves these Uniqlo fleece jackets! For under $30 they’re an amazing deal and come in sizes for everyone, from toddlers to men. Although I have my own in womens XS (see on me), I often steal Nick’s mens size M for the oversized fit when lounging at home, so would definitely recommend sizing up if you want it to be extra snuggly.
7. Candles + Accessories
Bring a bit of coziness to their place! To upgrade the gift from being “just” a candle, include a couple of chic candle accessories like a USB charged electric lighter, a wick trimmer and dipper, a snuffer or a glass cloche.
I’ve linked below a few options for non-toxic candles and accessories. If you’re shopping at Follain (so many clean beauty goodies) use code JEANWANG for 10% off or wait for their big Black Friday sale!
A little bit of at-home luxe for the skincare lover! A facial steamer is a nice addition to any weekly skincare routine, especially in the winter months when skin tends to be more dry. They’re a relaxing way to open up your pores before applying serums and other products, and if you add a couple drops of essential oils it feels like you’re at the spa!
