How set are you guys for the holidays? Decorations up? (If you’re like me then I’m guessing your answer is yes; mine went up first week of December!) How about gifts all bought and wrapped? Also, like me, you might have done some but still have a few names to check off your list? Well, as your making your list and checking it twice, I’m jumping in with some ideas in partnership with Walmart to help you tick all the items off your gift list. Plus, most thing are free two-day shipping* or free in-store pick up** so you’ll still have plenty of time to wrap them before putting your feet up for a marathon of cheesy holiday movies by the fire. Ah, bliss! First, though, we’ve gifts to choose so let’s get to it! To make it easier to identify the perfect gift, I’ve split the eight gifts out into different ‘personalities’ below. Let me know which ones you choose – or perhaps are even adding to your own list!
For The Tech Geek | Google Home Hub
I’m obsessed with Google’s latest innovation that allows you to ask for Google Assistant for hands-free help with a series of tasks around the house. You can even personalize it to tell you a series of information each morning – about your commute, the weather, your events for the day and so on – simply by saying “Good morning, Google.” Then, when you go to bed say “Goodnight, Google” and it will automatically set alarms and turn off the lights. Pretty neat, right?!
For The Music Lover | Bose Quiet Comfort Headphones
I always like to give gifts that I’ve either tried and tested myself or from brands I know to trust. Bose is one of the brands as I’ve been an avid user of their headphones over the years. My heartmate and I travel a lot for work so I’m tempted to add these noise-cancelling headphones to his list as they’d be perfect for when he takes flights – stylish and practical. I love how the headphones can be folded up to a small size when not in use.For The Digital Shopper | Samsung Galaxy Tab
The moment I saw this tablet my mom immediately came to mind because she recently discovered online shopping (!) but doesn’t like to sit at the computer all the time to do so. I’m thinking this would be the perfect solve as it would mean she could shop from the comfort of the couch! It’s small enough to fit in her handbag too, which is great because I know she loves any opportunity to show off pictures of my niece to her friends!
For The Avid Adventurers of All Ages | Swiss+Tech Men’s Puffer Jacket
This cozy Swiss Tech jacket is perfect for adventurers because it’s super warm but also lightweight. It comes in a few different colors (the Blue Cove is my favorite!) and you can even get the jacket in kid’s sizes, too. I’m seeing some adorable matching family pictures in some of y’all’s futures…!For The Enchanted Kid | LEGO Harry Potter Fantastic Beasts
I’m not kid but I sure do love Harry Potter (I grew up with it, after all!). Another thing I love? Lego. Alas, my Lego days are behind me but for kids who love the Harry Potter series and playing with Lego, this Fantastic Beasts edition Lego would make the perfect present. Thinking I should buy it for my nephew, you know, so I can ‘help’ build it…! 😉
For The Passionate Photographer | DJI Tello Drone
Droning has become a passion hobby of mine over the past two years. I get a lot of messages on Instagram asking me which drone people should by when they are starting out, or for their kids. I’d say the Tello drone is a great option for both – it’s suitable for ages 14+ but also has a 5M camera so it’s great to get used to flying drones and capturing some awesome pictures as you do.For The Coffee Lover | Animal mugs & Coffee Grinder
Everyone loves a cute mug, right?! Especially so if you’re a coffee lover. I think it would be nice to pair these animal motif mugs with a KitchenAid coffee bean grinder. That way the recipient can start to grind their beans to get extra fresh coffee at the touch of a button.For The Keen Cook | CuisinArt Toaster Oven + The Pioneer Woman Cookware Set
My mom has always loved to cook and kindly messages me recipes each time I text her and say “Remember that pasta dish you used to make for us after school on Tuesdays?” – an hour later the recipe is in my inbox. Moms are the best, right?! I gifted her a Pioneer Woman bakeware set last year and she loved it. So, if you’re looking for a gift for a keen cook this year, the Pioneer Woman Cookware set could be perfect. If you know someone who has just moved into a new place then the CuisinArt Toaster Oven would make a thoughtful gift.
