There always seem to be a few people on your holiday gift list who already have it all. So much so that it doesn't matter if you're eyeing the latest iPhone X or some everyday cookware essentials -- they've already got them. It makes finding the perfect gift a real challenge.
There are holiday sweaters out there that are good, bad, and just plain ugly. Those that fall into the last category are usually dubbed official "ugly sweaters" for their larger-than-life designs that are a perfect mix of cringeworthy and nostalgic. Nowadays, these kitschy designs have become a staple during the holiday season. There are even entire websites dedicated to selling them.
Small presents you'll be proud to gift.
A good tech gift is hard to beat when you're shopping for the guys on your list. These gadgets and tools work for a variety of people with diverse interests. Audiophiles will gush over state-of-the-art speakers, and wine aficionados will do the same for a nifty electric wine bottle opener. So as you're looking for gifts for men this holiday season, think electronic for memorable and thoughtful presents.
When it comes to holiday gifts, we're firm believers that our shopping lists should only be stocked with items that have a long shelf life, that the recipients will actually use, and that will somehow make their day-to-day lives a little better. This could mean laptops that are more efficient that the ones they have now -- or, if you're a beauty or grooming fanatic, fragrances that stand the test of time.
Nailing the perfect holiday present is all about matching the right gift to the right personality. So if you're stuck on what to get for the women in your life this holiday season, have no fear.
For an active person, getting new gear gives us that extra bit of motivation we need to push ourselves a little harder during a 5-mile run or stretch a little deeper during a vinyasa yoga class. There's even some science behind this, with a study on "enclothed cognition" suggesting that new clothing can postiively affect performance. Donning new workout clothing, sneakers and tech gadgets really does have the power to make you feel more prepared and excited for your next run, swim, spin class -- you name it.
Even with all the emphasis on working out during the holiday season, this also tends to be one of the busiest times of year. Seems a bit contradictory, doesn't it?
Holiday shopping is no easy feat. You try to find the ideal gift for every person on your list, and every year, that list seems to grow longer and longer. ('Tis the season of giving, after all.) Plus there's a ton of items to sift through online until you find the perfect one.
The perfect gifts to show your gratitude.
Taking a page from our Danish friends, these gifts bring on that cozy feeling referred to as "hygge."
The holidays are right around the corner -- especially if you celebrate Hanukkah. If you observe Christmas, you've got a bit more leeway. But if you're a procrastinator, time is truly of the essence. You only have a few days left to buy your loved ones gifts that show them just how special they are to you. And that's a pretty tall order.
Shopping for holiday gifts is no easy task. But for some reason, we find shopping for stocking stuffers even harder. There seems to be a lot working against stocking stuffers: size restrictions, a budget you're sticking to, or ensuring that the tiny product still has a "wow" factor. If you're stuck on what to buy, we suggest focusing on tech devices.
No matter what holiday you celebrate or how, gift-giving is usually at the forefront during the festive season. But gifting travelers who may be always on the go can be tricky to navigate.
Come winter, nothing feels quite as cozy as making a piping hot mug of hot chocolate, warming up under a fleece blanket and playing a board game with your friends and family. Of course, you can break these goodies out anytime of the year; board games have been a staple at my house during power outages, after holiday dinners and even instead of a typical movie night. These games really do have the power to bring together your entire group for a night full of laughs and memories.
