If you’re like I am, you are just now starting to buckle down and get serious about holiday shopping. Here are some gift ideas that people are sure to like and use. I made sure to include only highly-rated products that I know will be worth the money. Enjoy!
Headphones make awesome gifts. Though most people have earbuds, higher quality headphones are less damaging for ears and cancel out much more surrounding noise. Check out this wireless pair from Bose or these wired headphones by Sony. Either will make a great gift for any music or movie lover in your life.
TEA INFUSING TRAVEL MUG
Travel mugs are both practical and thoughtful, and many people might not think to get themselves a really nice one. If there are any tea lovers in your life, check out this great bamboo travel mug with an attached infuser. Pick up some loose-leaf tea to go along with the mug, and you’ll have put together a lovely gift.
You can tailor this idea to so many people, as there are countless subscription services these days. In addition to hugely popular ones like Netflix, there are deluxe beauty sample subscriptions like Birchbox, athletic clothing subscriptions like Fabletics, and just about every other kind you can think of. Spotify Premium is my favorite subscription, and would make a wonderful present for anyone who loves music. Dollar Shave Club is an awesome service for low-priced, high-quality razor blades that will make a perfect gift for the guy in your life. Moviepass is another excellent option that allows you to see as many movies as you want for $9.95 a month.
L.L. BEAN BOOTS
Bean Boots will please just about anyone, since they can withstand heavy rain and snow while still looking cute. Extremely high quality, waterproof and insulated, these boots can serve different purposes throughout the entire year. L.L. Bean has created a variety of styles and insulation levels to fit different tastes and climates. I wear mine all the time, and trust me, they are worth the money.
This might seem like a boring gift, but who doesn’t want their feet to stay ultra-warm during the winter? A nice pair of wool socks makes a great addition to any other gift, or can stand alone. Smartwool makes my absolute favorite socks, and offers various weights for different temperature ranges. Check out their medium-weight crew socks for a comfortable, warm pair perfect for December, January and February.
FRENCH PRESS COFFEE MAKER
Anyone who loves coffee will enjoy this gift, and you can find nice french presses for under thirty dollars. Take a look at this eight-cup press that gets great reviews on Amazon. Toss in some gourmet beans, and your shopping is done!
AMAZON GIFT CARD
If all else fails and you just don’t know what a person might like, opt for an Amazon gift card. This way, they can choose whatever they want and you ensure that they love it.
