We’re almost to mid-November, and that means the holidays will be here before we know it. We’re here to help keep the season as stress-free as possible with our 2020 holiday gift guides. We’ll be sharing some of our favorite picks throughout the season to help you with everyone on your list. From your boss to your colleagues, girlfriend, partner, or family, we’ll make sure to get all of the bases covered with unique, curated picks that will make you the hero of the holidays this year. To start, here are some of our picks based on the interest and personalities that are sure to please.
For the Jet-Setter
For a travel accessory that’s as practical as it is stylish, give a merino wool, temperature-regulating scarf (perfect to ward off the cold airplane temperatures or keep you cool in warmer climates). Not only are our scarves perfect for every climate, but they are also wrinkle-resistant and can be worn repeatedly without having to hit the wash cycle. With naturally antibacterial properties, this will be the most practical and stylish piece in everyone’s suitcase.
For the Person Who’s Always Stressed
If you haven’t jumped on the weighted blanket train yet, get on board. These magic blankets have been used by occupational therapists for years to treat patients with sensory processing or autism spectrum disorders, but since they were introduced to the mainstream market, they’ve become renowned for their ability to help a myriad of issues, from occasional insomnia to minor anxiety and stress. It’s been a stressful year, and for the person who tends to stress a little more than most, this is a great gift option. While there are a ton of options on the market, the Baloo Weighted Throw is one of the best-reviewed out there.
For the Foodie
For a gift that’s as practical as it is impressive, opt for a gourmet olive oil to impress the gourmand in your life. Some of our favorite gifts to give are the ones that people won’t necessarily splurge on for themselves, and a high-priced olive oil is something that people often consider an absolute luxury. Williams Sonoma is always a safe bet for artisanal food products (and foodies will instantly associate the brand with quality and know you’ve given them something extra special), and one of our favorites for gifting is the Frantoio Muraglia Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Produced in Northern Apulia from Peranzana olives, the cold-pressed oil comes in a jar that’s so beautiful it could be a gift in itself. The jar isn’t just for looks though, it’s made of ceramic to preserve the oil’s rich flavor and aroma from sunlight.
For the Adventurer
For the person who loves the great outdoors, introduce them to the magic of merino wool. Though many only associate wool as an option for when the temperatures drop, the luxury fabric is also the perfect option for warmer temperatures and physical activities. With its moisture-wicking properties, every fiber of merino wool naturally helps regulate body temperature and transports sweat away from the skin. In layman’s terms, it keeps you from sweating and smelling less than fresh. Even better, it offers UV sun protection and is insanely comfortable. For a perfect option, opt for one of our cult-classic v-neck sweaters, which they can take from hiking to the boardroom for the season’s most versatile gift!
For the Consummate Host (or Hostess)
The odds of being served and cheese and charcuterie platter at a holiday gathering are fairly high, as they are always a go-to favorite with experienced hosts and hostesses. And with good reason- they’re easy to prepare, perfect finger foods, and are always a hit with guests. To help take their trays to the next level, opt for a stunning cheese board from luxury brand, Mariposa. We love the look of their Signature Round Cheese Board, and even better, it’s sustainably harvested with Caribbean Walnut Wood and 100% recycled aluminum. If you want to really impress, you can even upgrade the gift with a customizable engraving.
