Holiday Gift Guide - My Favorite Items of 2021

December 7, 2021

Black Friday has come and gone, but if you're anything like me, you probably still have a few people on your list to shop for. I'm usually pretty good with getting the bulk of things during Black Friday weekend, but there's always those few individuals that are way harder to shop for - and it can feel a bit stressful to find that special item for them!

That's why I've went ahead and created a gift list of some of my favorite items I've seen so far this year while doing my holiday shopping.

(psssttt - make sure you also check out my other post for my 20 favorite health and wellness gift ideas for those health nuts in your life too!)

For the foodies in your life:

Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric pressure Cooker
Instant Pot

I can't tell you how much I LOVE my Instant Pot. It has saved me hours in the kitchen, and allows me to multi-task like a pro. I personally have a 6qt size, but wish I had the 8qt.

Bamboo Cutting Board with Containers

This cutting board is so handy! You can literally store all the items that you are chopping up in the containers below to they can be ready to cook with all at once! This is a great gift for anyone that wants to meal prep more efficiently.

Fit Butter

I recently discovered the wonderful wonderful glory of FitButter and I ate the whole jar in 3 days. Whoops. This stuff is a nut butter lover's dream. It's peanut butter mixed with protein powder and healthy fats like MCT oil to add a decadent but healthy twist on peanut butter. 10/10 flavor.

For the person who loves shopping on Amazon:

Amazon Prime Membership

Yep, that's right. You can gift someone either 3 months or 12 months of Amazon prime.

Super easy and SUPER useful if you're a weekly amazon shopper like me :)

Audible Membership

Know someone that is a huge audiobook lover? Gift them an Audible membership! They will be able to pick out which audiobooks they want, when they want. You can choose from a 3, 6 or 12 month membership gift.

For the person who is always complaining they're cold:

Amazon Basics Mini Space Heater

This Amazon Basics mini space heater has been a life saver for me during the winter months. I love keeping this tucked under my desk to keep my feet warm during those colder days.

Heated Jacket

The Venustas Heated Jacket is a great pick for anyone really living in the northern hemisphere during the winter months - especially here in Chicago, where I'm from. It can get really bitter outside, and having a jacket that heats up with a 12 hour battery life sounds pretty nice. This jacket is rechargeable too, with a simple battery pack that you can charge up when you're not using the jacket.

Don't wanna go for the full jacket? Check out these heated gloves instead.

For the person who has tons of plant babies:

Succulent Earrings
Succulent Earrings

I think these succulent earrings are absolutely adorable for the plant mamas in your life. As a bonus, they are handmade too! There are thousands of cool handmade gifts on amazon under their "handmade" department if you are into supporting local artisans.

Punny Dish Towels

These Punny Plant Dish Towels are adorable and funny for those plant peeps in your life that have a sense of humor.

For the person who REALLY needs to relax:

Spa Gift Set Box
Spa gift set box

I absolutely love this spa gift set box. Everything is lavender scented which is already relaxing as is - but the products are genuinely useful things - like soap, body oil, body scrub, face masks, etc. It's a complete spa in a box. This is such a clutch gift since it is basically already all packed together for you in a cute little box.

Shiatsu Back and Shoulder Massager
Shiatsu Back Shoulder and Neck Massager

After a long day of working at the computer, this Shiatsu massager can help to alleviate tension in the neck and shoulders by combining massage therapy and deep heat therapy that targets your stiff muscles.

Christmas Tree Soy Candle
Christmas Tree Soy Candle

If you're like me, you didn't end up getting a real tree in the home this year - and thus, are missing the lovely scent of pine throughout your home. But this soy candle can help to change that! With notes of eucalyptus and fresh pine, this gift can help to bring the smells of Christmas to the home for up to 70 hours of burn time!
