Our Latest News
As you may be painfully well aware of this time of year, shopping for friends and family can be difficult. Maybe you can’t determine their personal style, or are worried about buying the wrong sizes. And we all have that one person on our list who’s simply impossible to shop for. If you’re in a pickle this holiday season, don’t panic. We’re here with our go-to gifts that will enhance every person’s home on your list this year.
Cozy up the Bedroom
While it may seem unorthodox to buy bedding for someone else, a quality set of sheets is a wonderful indulgence that many people may not splurge on for themselves. Plus, all you need to know about your recipient is the size of their bed and their color preferences, so it’s perfect for folks you may not be able to buy clothing for. We’ve currently got our eye on the online retailer Boll and Branch, offering luxury sheets at a reasonable cost. Check out their site today; they’ve been advertising some pretty enticing holiday deals in the past few weeks.
Encourage Hobbies and Passions
If you’ve got a friend or family member who has a particular affinity or talent, show them you appreciate them by giving them a tool of their trade. For example, the member of your friend group who’s been cooking dinner for everyone throughout the year might really appreciate a clever addition to their kitchen such as this unique and fun breakfast sandwich maker from Hamilton Beach. If you have a family member in the arts, consider a leather bound notebook that will encourage your loved one to jot down their brilliant ideas.
Cater to the Entertainment Junkie
We all know someone who loves all the latest gadgets, and while it can be intimidating to buy gifts for these folks, as they seem to always have everything, we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves. Check out this mini smart plug from Wemo, which is wifi-enabled and works in conjunction with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit to connect to an app on your phone, through which you can control the lights and appliances in your home remotely. This budget-friendly gift is an exciting perk to introduce into any home, and we bet you’ll surprise even your most tech-forward friends.
Dress up the Home Office
For your freelance friend who works remotely, a new addition to their desk or home office means a lot. When you spend most of your time working from home, breathing new life into your office space can give you the kick you need to start the new year fresh. For the neat freak freelancer in your life, look into a cable organizer like this one from Envisioned. For your artsy friend, try a unique spin on an office staple, like this funky orange tape dispenser. Your loved one will be thrilled you thought of them and found something uniquely tailored to their lifestyle.
