It’s that time of year when we search for perfect gifts to bestow upon our friends, family and loved ones. With fewer shopping days this year between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we’re all feeling the time pressure. But it doesn’t have to be difficult or take too long with help from this Holiday Gift Guide. Here are 10 cool ideas that just may be perfect for someone on your list.
1. For the guys who sport the clean shaven look:
Get them the Holiday Winston Gift Set with Razor Stand from Harry’s. It comes complete with foaming shave gel, three German-engineered blade cartridges, a cover to protect the blades when traveling, and a handy razor stand to park the shaver so the blades can air dry (all in a nice gift box for $35 at Harry’s).
2. For those who want to go natural with their skin care:
Treat them to these pure, all natural, plant-based Ultra Aesthetics Skincare products. A perfect skincare routine begins with cleansing using MSM Facial Wash, exfoliating twice a week with MSM Facial Scrub with natural jojoba beads, and finishing with a spritz or two of MSM Toner which helps tighten and minimize pores. Finish with MSM Moisture Creme which hydrates and nourishes skin with shea butter and rosehip seed oil. ($11.95, $12.95 and $17.95 at Dr. Ron’s Ultra Aesthetics).
3. For Star Wars fans of all ages:
Surprise them with this super-cute 11-inch plush figure of the newest kid on the block— Baby Yoda — featured in Star Wars: The Mandalorian. But don’t wait – due to its popularity you’ll want to buy this gift now ($24.99 at Target).
4. For Family Game Night:
Pick up SEQUENCE for the whole family to enjoy. It’s an easy to learn board game that uses both playing cards and chips, and involves both luck and strategy. Multiple players can join in – playing for themselves or in teams. It’s easy to chat while playing and is sure to get everyone laughing ($24.34 at Amazon).
5. For the Grill King:
Buy this handy, Digital BBQ Fork to aid in determining when the beef, chicken and fish are done to perfection. It reads internal temperatures accurately in seconds. Or, set your desired meat temperature and the Digital BBQ Fork lights up and beeps when it’s reached ($44.99 at Sharper Image).
6. For the mindful people in your life:
Please them with this beautifully crafted, refillable Italian Leather Writing Journal. It’ll give them the perfect place to pen their feelings, thoughts and worldly observations. Or to plan and organize their busy schedule. Or even just to doodle and draw ($39.95 for a 6” x 8” size at Barnes & Noble).
7. For the music-lover who likes to tune out:
Give them JBuds Air Wireless Earbuds which offer above-average audio quality with boosted lows that will appeal to bass lovers, according to a review by PC Magazine. And they won’t break the bank — for the price, you won’t find a better pair of completely wireless earbud headphones ($49.99 at Best Buy).
8. For those with four-legged furry best friends:
Show them how much you care with a Pedigree Dish Towel sporting their pooch’s image and a playful poem celebrating their special traits. From Airedale Terrier to Yorkshire Terrrier, 60 pedigrees are represented ($16 at uncommon goods).
9. For those with new family members:
Welcome a spouse, a new baby, or grandchild, with a Needlepoint Christmas Stocking that will become a treasured keepsake. You can even have it personalized with their name. Choose from several vibrant holiday scenes beautifully rendered ($29.95 at L.L.Bean)
10. For the host of the holiday party:
Bring them a sweet thank-you gift with Premium Chocolates of the World. It’s a tasty sampling of chocolates from a variety of countries such as France, Spain and Italy. Not only delicious, it’s a great value (only $11.99 for 2 pounds at Costco).
