Gift Guide for Online Shoppers

I love holiday gift guides. I’ve even written a couple for Vita.mn (RIP). This year, I decided to make my own, aimed at many people like me who do most of their holiday shopping online. I hope it helps you find something cute and/or cool for someone you love!

1. For the Foodie, Le Creuset Honey Pot $39

Honey bears are so out! This pot is perfect for the thick, organic, raw honey that tastes so much better. Plus it’s an unexpected, fairly inexpensive piece to add to a Le Creuset collection.

You could even pair it with this cute Le Creuset Stoneware, which looks perfect for holding sugar ($50).

2. For the Kid Who Has Everything, Wild Republic Cuddlekins Red Panda $12

These stuffed animals are high-quality and super soft. Plus, even spoiled kids probably don’t have a RED PANDA.

3. For the Traveler, Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera ($55)

My friend Amy got us a Fujifilm Instax camera for our wedding, and it was one of our favorite gifts. We loved using it on our honeymoon in Japan. Here’s one of our favorite snaps it took.

Yes that’s a real deer!

4. For the Casual But Cool Lady, Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Mockneck Dress $59

I have a couple dresses from Lou & Grey and I live in them. They are super soft on the inside, but look formal on the outside. The ultimate ploy!

5. For the Yogi, Outdoor Voices Dipped Warmup Leggings, $95

How cute are these? I asked my mom for the short person version of these for Christmas.

6. For the Sporty Guy, Nike Sportswear Tech Fleece Windrunner Hoodie $130

Everyone likes expensive Nike stuff, after all.

7. For the Coffee Addict, Minipresso GR by WACACO Portable Hand Held Espresso Maker, Black, $57 

An espresso maker that looks like a camera lens. Cool.

8. For the Person Who Keeps Forgetting Their iPhone 7 Has No Headphone Jack, Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth Wireless Headphones $249.00

I’ve had these headphones for a couple years and they are perfect. They give bigger sound than earbuds, and they’re also not so big that you can’t wear them on a dog walk or to the gym.

9. For the Health Goddess, Ninja Shark Professional Blender, $89

You don’t really need a NutriBullet or Vitamix to make good smoothies. My mom got me one of these a couple years ago and it’s still making my breakfasts. It can handle hot coffee, plus it has a single-serve add-on that lets you make just one smoothie without having to clean a big blender.

10. For the Cat Lover, Emie Kitten Portable Battery, $29.99

How cute is this cat shaped battery? I feel like it would actually terrify my dog.

11. For the Worldly Friend, Matcha Tea Ceremony Gift Set, $39.50

Drinking matcha is one of the best things you can do for your health. I often just throw some matcha powder in sparkling water, but if I wanted to be fancy with it, this would be the perfect place to start.

12. For the Gamer Kid, Nintendo Vans Kids Sneakers , $59.95

I got some of these for my nephew who once claimed he loved Yoshi more than his mother. I think they went over well. Bonus: They say “GAME OVER” on the soles. (Another one of his favorite catch phrases.)

13. For the Cocktail Lover,  Zulay Manual Citrus Juice Press, $17.99

My citrus press is my favorite kitchen accessory. I bought it for cocktails but I use it almost every day for salad dressings or to make guacamole. It leaves my kitchen smelling so good.

14. For the Walking Enthusiast, Withings Activité Pop – Activity and Sleep Tracking Watch, $79.99

I’ve tried a few fitness devices and I’ve found the Withings Activité Pop to be one of the most solid options. You can read my review here. They’re going for under $80 now, which makes this a steal. Its inner step dial will seriously motivate the active person in your life.

15. For the Chef, The Love and Lemons cookbook, $20.83

This is my favorite cookbook. It’s so beautiful and the recipes are simple and delicious.

16. For the Avid Reader, Sweetbitter, $16.84

This book about the New York restaurant world is a juicy and eye-opening read. Here’s my review if you’re curious. Other great books to gift include Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime and The Girls by Emma Cline.

17. For the Mother Who Made You, Ugg Slippers , $99

Call me basic if you will, but I love fuzzy Ugg stuff. These slippers will keep your mom’s feet warm, cozy and comfy all winter.

I hope I helped provide some fun gift ideas! Happy holidays, y’all.
