Holiday Gifting Inspiration Take 3

US Wealth Napolitano |

By: Jenn Kovalski

It goes without saying the holidays are not truly about giving and receiving gifts, however the majority of us do gift to those we love around this time of year because we truly enjoy doing so! This year, due to the lateness of the Thanksgiving holiday, (last minute shoppers consider yourself warned) we have about a week less than usual to complete our holiday shopping.

So for those of you who are looking to give something other than jewelry, tools, the newest iPhone and are stumped, here is my annual gift giving inspiration list…

Ember Smart Mug: Keeps your hot beverages hot and to the exact temperature you prefer. Slow coffee drinkers who have to nuke coffee once every 20 minutes (like myself) can rejoice and continue to sip slowly.

Tile Pro’s: They have regular ones and extra skinny ones that can fit in your wallet. Put them on your key ring, luggage, on your dog’s collar, your grandchild and never lose anything or anyone again.

A Weighted Blanket: I received one last year, and while sometimes it’s a struggle to stand up quickly with it on (it IS heavier) this really does help me sleep better and calm any and all Patriot game inducing anxiety. Another way I know it’s worth its salt is that I have to fight my dog to use it, and he only likes the nice things.

Smart Plugs: Many of us have an Alexa, Arlo, or some smart home devices, this allows you to take your home to the next smart level without a complete overhaul.

Vinebox: For the wine lover, it can be gifted as a monthly club or as a sampler. The biggest pro here is it isn’t a mass produced bottle of wine, these are handpicked (and some rare) samples from all over the world by the glass.

Goldbelly: This Company ships food from the most famous restaurants in the country. Craving cheesecake from NY? You got it. Deep dish pizza from Chicago? Done. Ice Cream from Texas? Easy. There are gifts and subscriptions and an impressive amount of restaurants from all over that you can order from.

Yappy: This website is basically the mothership of all items to be customized in honor of your canine (aprons, hats, iPhone covers, wrapping paper, etc. etc.). A great gift for kids may be the search and find (like Find Waldo) book in the likeness of the family dog.

Luggage: Away Travel suitcases are versatile, attractive and functional. They allow for a lot of customizations including a battery charger built into the suitcase (TSA approved) as well as adding custom inserts inside to best accommodate how you tend to pack.

If you still haven’t found that perfect gift, feel free to give me a call or email, I am happy to help!
