Ah yes, it’s that time of the year. The most wonderful time of the year: the holidays! It’s right around now that malls would be filled with crowds of last minute gift shoppers, looking for the perfect gift for every friend and family member.
If you aren’t given any hints as to what your gift receiver is looking for, you might be struggling to find a gift for them that will be a guaranteed success. Here are five must-have lifestyle gifts that almost anyone would love to receive this holiday season:
Stationery Since many are currently working from home, anyone would appreciate a little home office upgrade. Aesthetically pleasing stationery is the best way to make your work corner a little more colorful and fun to be around. Journals are something anyone can use, whether it be to plan out your daily list of tasks, or take notes for that upcoming meeting. If you know your gift receiver has a minimalistic yet aesthetic taste, Moglea is a luxury brand with various styles that will truly make everything you write in your journal a work of art.
Aesthetic Tech Gear If you’re going to level up with your new adorable stationery, you might as well go all the way and get some matching tech gear. If you know someone who’s in dire need of a new hard drive, or has a charger that’s been broken for way too long, look at some cute tech accessories to solve their problems. A wireless charging + accessory organization station can be the perfect gift for someone who’s working from home!
Candles Candles are the perfect lifestyle gift. There’s a scent for every season. You can never go wrong with a peppermint or firewood candle to give your space that cozy holiday vibe.
Recently, funky shaped candles have been trending all over social media platforms like TikTok. They not only serve decorative purposes, but also bring the best vibe and smell to your space. Stores like Urban Outfitters and Etsy have various styles of fun candles for your every gift-giving need!
Skincare Guide You’d be surprised how many people would appreciate a solid upgrade to their skincare routine (or perhaps lack thereof). Do some research on what skin type your gift receiver has, and spoil them with a simple yet solid routine. Although this should be tailored to their needs, every skincare routine can use a staple face wash, moisturizer and sunscreen. If you know your receiver has dry skin, maybe throw in an oil or a serum. If you know your receiver has acne prone skin, look for pimple patches or an acne prone face wash.
Also, there’s no need to go overboard on the luxury products. This year, a bunch of affordable skincare brands like CeraVe and The Ordinary blew up. You don’t need to break the bank in order to take care of your skin!
Cute Coffee Set If you know someone with a crippling caffeine addiction, this is the gift idea for you: a complete coffee kit. There’s no coffee or tea addict who wouldn’t appreciate a new mug for their morning drink. From Amazon to Homegoods, you can find so many different kinds of cups for your receiver. Feel free to make the mug personal to them. Next, go for a new blend of coffee you think they’d like, or a restock of their favorite tea. Don’t forget the aesthetic coaster to complete the kit! Go for a matching mug and coaster set if you’re into that monochromatic set look.
Gift giving can definitely be a challenge, but it’s also one of the best parts of the holiday season. I hope this gift guide made your shopping process a little less stressful!
