My better half put together this list of thoughtful, useful, and best of all, affordable gifts for this holiday season. We put most of these items to good use in our own home, and the few that we don’t own are currently on our wish list!
Essential Oil Diffuser: Unwind with a calming scent or get energized with an invigorating one.
Hair Elastics: These are a great value. Can be applied to man-buns as well.
Makeup Caddy: Keep your makeup organized and separate.
Belgian Waffle Maker: We use this for hashbrowns and cinnamon rolls, not just waffles. This is a fun change to breakfast! Definitely put some cinnamon rolls in it.
Salt Box: For the fancy chef or aspiring chef, the perfect stove accessory.
Beer Chiller: When you need to cool that room temperature beer pronto, use this!
Patagonia Hat: This is one of the best looking hats and we LOVE anything Patagonia because the quality is the best. I wear this one a lot.
Discreet Beer Tote: For the days when beer o’clock comes early, and for the times when…well, I think you’ll know what to do with this.
Jeans: These are not just any jeans. These are Levi’s Men’s 541 Athletic Straight Fit, so they sport an athletic cut with a bit more room in the thigh and seat. I’ve found my jean soulmate. They also come in a chino form.
Grill Tools: Grill on!
Beverage Chilling Stones: Cool your liquor drinks without diluting their flavor.
Sunglasses: Polarized and durable enough to play sports in. I put them through the wringer and they’re still going strong, unlike most of my sunglasses, which I destroy quite quickly.
For Women and Men
Portable Charger: This is the gift everyone doesn’t realize that they need. Your friends and family will be using this and you will be the generous one who thought of them! Grab one for yourself too!
Crock Pot: This baby get lots of use at our house and is great for working families! We have two and they are amazing for doing two separate meals if you need to meal prep or make two separate dishes for dinner.
Tile Tags: You guys, these are the most brilliant invention. Are you guilty of misplacing your keys frequently or lucky to live with someone who does? Help your friends and family stop losing items once and for all.
Phone Car Mount: For easy hands-free viewing of map applications.
Budget Smart Watch: While it may not be the Apple Watch, it is similar and a fraction of the cost.
