The past few months have flown by in the blink of an eye. Can you believe that the holidays are right around the corner? With the holidays fast approaching, it’s time to start finding the perfect gifts for your friends and family.
We’ve gathered a list of the top trending gifts this year that are sure to appeal to a variety of interests. With everyone cooped up inside, your gifts should match their current lifestyle — providing them with physical comfort and peace of mind. Whether you plan on shopping in-person or doing everyone online, consider gifting the following.
Working from home might have been fun at first, but as the months dragged on, it’s started to feel a bit like Groundhog’s Day. You wake up, walk across the house to your desk setup, and you’re ready to start your day. Make your “commute” a bit more comfortable by surprising your loved ones with a pair of plush slippers — especially as we begin to enter the colder months!
Protective Face Covers
Face masks are the perfect stocking stuffer of 2020. Nowadays you can’t go anywhere without one — and for a good reason! Protective face masks might have started out relatively basic looking, but they’ve transformed over the past few months making it possible for individuals to find masks that match their style and coverage preferences. Stock up on a variety of styles and patterns of face masks and covers that your friends and family will be able to use every single day.
Athleisure is a fashion trend that has become more popular than ever. Now that most people are spending their workdays, weeknights, and weekends in the comfort of their own home, athleisure has become an acceptable everyday outfit — whether working out or not! This clothing promotes comfort and style while allowing the individual to look more put together than if they were wearing a standard sweatshirt and sweatpants (or pajamas!). Consider gifting a quick-dry thermal, high waist moto legging, or a pair of new running sneakers. You can piece together an entire athletic outfit or mix and match the perfect pieces for your family member.
Throughout the pandemic, alcohol sales have grown by 27%. Why not provide the gift that keeps on giving? A wine tumbler! Wine tumblers come in a variety of sizes and patterns, allowing you to customize your gift perfectly for each member of your family. Ensure your friends are sipping chilled wine all night long with their brand new wine tumbler.
With most people working from home, many companies have started relying more heavily on video conferencing software for internal and external meetings. The best part about virtual meetings? Individuals only need to look presentable from the waist up! Whether they’re wearing the sweatpants from yesterday or plaid pajama pants, the only thing coworkers can see is their top half. Spruce up their “work from home” look by gifting them jewelry, such as earrings or necklaces. These pieces can elevate their look and quickly take their work from home attire to the next level.
Blue Light Glasses
Tired of staring at screens all day long? You might notice that your eyes feel strained or you’re dealing with more headaches than normal. Your friends and family are likely dealing with the same problems! Blue light glasses are not only helpful in protecting eyes from harmful blue light but are extremely trendy as well. Whether your friend is a fan of a wire-framed style or classic readers, there’s a large variety of styles to choose from. Gifting your friends and family blue light glasses will provide them with peace of mind so they can transition from their work computer to their night of Netflix watching while protecting their eyes the entire time.
