I get a lot of stuff at my door hitting all sorts of price points. Believe me when I say, free isn’t always awesome. So when I get something that really stands out and makes it into my daily life, I feel like it’s worth talking about. That’s why I came up with this list of things I got this year that didn’t suck which I hope will give you cool gift ideas for anyone you need to shop for. I’ve also added a few things that I’ve been eyeballing and would like under my tree, and a few things I found on Amazon that I think are cool gift ideas. Sometimes you just need a little perspective or inspiration to find the right gift. So I hope this helps!
Don’t forget that Black Friday is this Friday and Cyber Monday follows right after! You can get the best deals on Amazon and other online stores without even leaving your house!
Gift Ideas for Anyone – From My Personal Collection
How cute is this! You can get your very own custom design on this doormat! I love this so much! It’s so hard to find the perfect doormat, and now you can make sure that it’s perfect by shopping this Totes Burlap mat on Etsy.
Added to my collection of smart cameras for my home is the WISENET SmartCam N2 with full HD, an ultra-wide angle lens, human + smart abnormal sound detection, Motion zone detection, noise reduction, two-way talk and a microSD or smartcloud for backup. This is the ultimate pet spy cam, and it works great to chat with your neighbor when they’re taking care of your said pets. Also, keeping an eye on your home while you’re away is priceless.
Brightech sent me this amazing floor lamp. I wanted something sleek that fit the mid-century modern theme of my master bedroom. If fit perfectly in the corner next to my reading chair. It’s really a talking piece too because it’s so big, it pulls the whole corner design together.
My Dreamcloud Luxury Foam mattress is one of the best things I’ve ever been sent. Before I received it a few months ago, I woke up sore every day of my life. I thought it was me getting old! But I’m in my 30’s, and soreness should not be a lifestyle at my age. About a month after sleeping on this mattress I realized I hadn’t been sore in weeks. It was truly a game changer for me. I don’t think I’ll ever have another mattress brand again. You can get $200 off with my special coupon below too! If you want to see Dreamcloud Luxury Foam mattress.
I was recently sent these DVF sunglasses from Visionworks. I love the shape of these. While they are for women, I found it very easy to choose the sunglasses I wanted and they arrived really fast. They were in perfect condition and came with a case and cloth for cleaning.
Tis the season for holiday scents and these soy candles are bursting with them! I love the Bright Endeavors brand mission which is to transform the lives of young moms by teaching them to craft premium soy candles in a supportive, professional environment. Through their paid job training program, they provide the guidance and job skills young moms need to secure quality employment and begin working toward professional success.
This is possibly one of the handiest little things I’ve gotten so far. The KeySmart Pro organizes your keys as well as serves as a locating device in case you misplace them. I love the LED light feature which you can use to light your locks at night so you can see where to place the key.
- Tile smart location that lets you track your missing keys on a map, all from the free Tile app on your phone!
- MAKE YOUR KEYS RING: Use the Tile app to make your KeySmart Pro play a tune so you can find your keys faster!
- FIND YOUR MISSING PHONE: Press the button on the KeySmart Pro to make your phone ring, even on silent.
- 10 KEYS + FLASHLIGHT + BOTTLE OPENER: Includes a built-in LED light, bottle opener and a loop piece to attach your car key fob. And it fits up to 10 keys.
This is a funny story because this cordless massager came to me as an accident when sent out by a PR company. The company told me to enjoy it and I sure did! The day it arrived I just happened to be in athe worst pain ever. After spending 5 hours painting the 10′ walls in my bedroom, and the cieling to match, and then mulching my landscaping, I was DEAD! I gave this Shiatsu Massager a try and WOW! They also gave me a coupon code for my readers so yay! 10% promo code: CHRISTA10
The Sonos One Voice Controlled Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa Built-In is an incredible device. Not only does it have amazing sound, but it is way smarter than I ever thought it could be. By using the app you can choose special skills for it like reporting the news and playing music from your streaming service. I use it for everyday tasks like keeping lists, checking the weather, traffic times and asking it questions. I also love using it as a calculator.
This JORD Wood Watch came to me early this year and I have been in love with it ever since. They make these beautiful watches for men and women. They are lightweight and go with every look. I love my wood watch!
One of my favorite things I got this year were these Maui Jim Aviators. I fell in love with them the moment I put them on. The classic aviator style works for any look and just about any face shape. It’s a perfect gift idea for anyone.
You might know that I am partnered with Kia. Inside of my Kia Niro is a Harman/Kardon sound system. At one of the events, I was given these Harman/Kardon SOHO wireless Bluetooth headphones and I never travel without them.
Living the travel life without a reliable power adapter is rough. This Xcentz Universal All-in-One Travel Adapter is sturdy and small so it goes anywhere and everywhere with me.
SleepPhones Bluetooth headphones, yup they are a thing! And I love them! Up until I had these, my partner would always make me turn the sound on my TV down super low. I had a hard time hearing what was happening so I would go out to the living room and end up falling asleep. We’ve had different schedules for a while now, and this had been an ongoing problem for us. Now that I have the SleepPhones, I can watch TV without disturbing him. They are super soft, comfy and sound really good. I’ve also enjoyed them for playing relaxing soundscapes from my phone. I don’t even feel like I have headphones on. They are also really comfy on the plane as well. ***Note, months later and I still use this almost every night.
I did not get this one, but while I was pulling up my links for all the stuff I did get, I saw this decanter set and couldn’t resist. It’s stunning! And, it would make a lovely gift idea for anyone who just got a new home or even a friend from work.
Fitz and Floyd Daphne 5 Piece Decanter Set, Copper
This wicker ice bucket for outdoor entertaining was another item on Amazon that caught my eye. This makes a great gift for anyone who loves to hang out on their patio and have friends and family over. It’s also great for family gatherings all year round.
You don’t know how much you need a bartender set until you’re having a girls night in and try to make martinis. These sets come in handy, but so many of them are cheaply made. I love the look and quality of this Oggi 4 Piece stainless steel bartender accessories set.
I tried to make those martinis once, and it didn’t go over so well without the martini glasses. But I always hated how long-stemmed martini glasses fit in my cupboard. Behold, these stemless martini glasses are the answer to the weird glass in the cupboard debacle.
Adventures can really add up. And unless you save for them you might find that your adventures are few and far between. If you know someone who loves to travel or go on spontaneous adventures, this is a thoughtful gift that will inspire them to save for travel.
I love nostalgia, and one of the most nostalgic things to have is a record player. If you know someone who loves music, they would appreciate this Crosley CR8005A-TU Cruiser portable 3-Speed turntable. Collecting vinyl records is not dead!
Technology is cool. Technology that makes things float in mid-air is even cooler. This ICE Orb Levitating/Floating Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker caught my eye while I was on Amazon and I think it would be a super awesome gift for anyone who’s into music.
I just received a sample of the Wellslock Locking Food Storage Containers and I must say, they do live up to their word! Nothing leaks from these at all and food stayed fresh longer because of the airtight seal. Now I use them for my son’s school lunch and to store leftovers or holiday cookie dough. I love these!
