The people in my life are an eclectic mix of personalities and I love them all but when it comes to getting them holiday gifts I’m stumped. Do you have a group of people in your life that are as different as can be? Here’s my Holiday Gift Guide for people of various interests and likes.
For the Low-Maintenance Stylish Man
Whether or not we want to admit it, beards, no matter how long, need to be maintained. Just as a man would wear a cologne, he needs to take care of his beard and Lovely Beards offers two types of 100% organic beard grooming products: the Beard Balm comes in five scents (plus unscented). It keeps the beard neat, conditions the facial hair and helps stop itching. Beard Oil comes in six scents (plus unscented). It makes hair softer and healthier and prevents flaking. Here’s an amazon link if you prefer to shop on Amazon.
For the Creative Kid
Young kids love pretend play but who says tweens can’t try their hand in grownup activities? The Future Architect’s Tool Kit, By Barbara Beck, offers kids ages 8-12 a unique opportunity to learn about architecture. It is a hands-on introduction to what an architect does and why buildings look and function the way they do. Kids can learn how to create their own drawings and build a model. At the end of the book there are exercises to design various homes for “clients”. Find it on Amazon.
For the Woman Who Loves Elegant Jewelry
Make a statement with these “classic with a twist” earrings by Mabel Chong. The Keshi Pearl Earrings are unique in shape and are perfect women who are tired of the run-of-the-mill perfectly round pearls but still want the classy, elegant look. These earrings come in a silver or gold setting. Available at Gifts.com – an incredible site for finding cool gifts – check out their personality quiz to find customized gift recommendations.
For the Health-Conscious Home Chef
Avocados have been known to be a superfood for quite some time but the new trend in cooking is avocado oil and CalPure Foods makes Extra-Virgin Avocado Oil that is absolutely delicious and chock-full of vitamins and minerals. Add it to your salad or use in dips or your favorite stir-fry dish. It contains mostly monounsaturated fats which help reduce harmful levels of inflammation in the body and may lower cholesterol. Buy on Amazon.
For the Avid Traveler
I tend to pack somewhat lightly for vacation but I pack smart: I like to keep things organized in bags and unfortunately I sometimes have to resort to ziplocs. Tartan & Twine is a company devoted to making gorgeous beauty and travel storage bags. The Tawney Steppe 4-Piece Train Case Set is a clear case that contains inside it 3 other cases so you can store your toiletries, makeup and medicine/first aid separately but keep them all together in a handy clear pouch.
For the Beauty-Obsessed
Spin for Perfect Skin is a brush that can be used on both your face and body as it includes several facial and body brushes. It’s battery-operated and allows for the removal of dead facial and body skin cells. Naturally, it also promotes cellular rejuvenation at the same time. This brush helps your skin look younger and brighter by removing bacteria and reducing pores.
For the Tween/Teen Who Loves Bling Everywhere
Sticker Beans are little patches of glitter made of bright rhinestones that can be used to decorate your phone case, laptop, iPad and really anything you want to add glitz to! They come in two-inch, five-inch and two feet sizes if you want to decorate your bedroom wall. From cupcakes to unicorns, to soccer balls and smiley faces – there is a huge selection of the expanding line. You can also collect them in a sticker book that’s available for purchase (pictured above).
For the Baseball Fan
Lovers of baseball rejoice! This is literally and figuratively a game-changer. The SwerveBall with its unique geometric design uses the power of torque and airflow to allow pitchers to throw curve balls, sliders, sinkers and breaking balls. It has twice the curves of a normal baseball – just place your fingers on special marks on the ball and throw.
