Tis the season! The holidays are getting closer every minute. If you’re like me, you have NO idea what to get people this year, especially with all of the changes we’ve experienced. We’ve all become pros at online shopping, especially me, so here are a few things I’ve tried that you might consider exploring.
For the Foodie
This year was the year everyone found out just how good – or how bad – they are in the kitchen. I’ll admit my pots and pans have had a rough few months. For my birthday this year, my friends sent me a surprise package with a Cravings by Chrissy Teigen 12 piece set from Target. It’s so non-sticky and perfect for pasta and rice, which have become staples in my diet even more than before.
If your foodie recipient is not so into cooking, but more into eating, consider a gift card from DoorDash, Uber Eats or Seamless.
For the Fitness Enthusiast
I’m not too into the idea of heading to the gym, but at-home workouts are definitely an option. I ordered a yoga mat last year to help with my stretching, floor and ab work. It comes with a strap in case I need to take it on-the-go, and easily rolls up to fit in the corner and get out of the way during the day. It comes in a few colors to fit your decor and mood. Check it out on Amazon.
If you’re looking for something a little more involved, check out Peloton. As I mention in my Workout Wednesday series, being home for the holidays, I was able to take advantage of my parents’ subscription and have to say it’s been life changing.
For the Scrapbooker
This year might not have been filled with all of the memories we expected back in January, but there were still beautiful moments worth capturing. While portrait mode is one of my favorite tools, sometimes I like to throw it back with a “retro” polaroid pic. I got a film + camera pack similar to this one from Target.
For the Social Media Maven
The secret to a great picture or video is quality light! If you didn’t already know, all of the Zoom calls from this year should have been an indicator. In an attempt to make my bedroom a dream room, I found some LED mirror lights that were super easy to install. All you have to do is peel, stick, and plug in. If you need a longer strip, you can even connect multiple pieces. I got mine from Amazon.
For the WFH Pro
If you’re like me, you sit at your laptop all day dialed in and before you know it, you realize you’ve been slumping over all day. I ordered these desk risers to help me keep from looking down at my screen and help fix my posture.
For the Busy One
Spending more time at home means more messes, at least for me. I now know why my mother is always cleaning! I ordered an Eufy robot vacuum to do the work. It literally has a mind of its own, going around the house sucking up the dirt, dust hair and other unmentionables on the floor. Be sure to move all your wires and hanging curtains out of the way though!
With online shopping it’s easier than ever to send a gift straight to the door of anyone, anywhere, but remember, it’s always the thought that counts.
What’s on your wish list this year?
Until next time…
