Feeling Lost This Season? Get Back on Course With This Holiday Gift Guide

By Katherine Stano  •  December 07, 2017

Merry, mopey, or mouthy, we all have a motley crew of friends and family we want to spoil a little during the holidays. Can’t you just see their lovely faces grinning (or grimacing) at you now? Aren’t they just precious? Then, there are the people who add that extra joy to our worlds—our stylists, mail carriers, therapists, pet sitters, teachers, and celebrity crushes. (Hey, famous people need love, too.) We all definitely have our work cut out for us when it comes to showing our Christmas spirit AND ensuring we have enough left over for, say, sustenance.

Our gift guide is a stealth way to find something for everyone, not go broke or lose your marbles. Everything’s priced just right and to that, we say, “You’re welcome.”

For The Fancy Pants

If you say Swarovski in any sentence, you will immediately become 50% fancier. Add that to 50% off their online specials, and you’re already on your way to owning a yacht, you high-roller. Now that we understand each other, take a look at all the shimmer Swarovski has to offer. They have an Affordable Gifts section with stunning earrings like these or trendy white and rose gold circle studs

 

For the daring and dazzling these gray and rose gold Ginger Studs are a statement jewelry piece she will love.

 

Give some sparkle this season. It doesn’t have to rob you cents-less. Check out Swarovski coupon codes and save on that sparkle.

For The Vegan

All animal people, 100% vegan or maybe even ¾-ish, should check out Vegan Organics. Created by an individual seeking to live more compassionately, they offer a unique, cruelty-free, and organic skin and hair care collection. Plus, with each product purchased, they donate $1 to Brightside Farm Sanctuary.

This mango lip balm is the balm-diggity. Moisturizing, soft, and packed with antioxidants, it’s a natural solution that’s fruitfully fab. $9.

Give the blissfulness of clear, squeaky-clean skin with this Organic Bamboo Face Washer. Only $7.90, this soothing cleansing cloth is 100% bamboo and pairs well with the Face Cleansing Oil.

 

Whether you know the most self-disciplined vegan on the planet or someone who frequently seeks out products made by caring companies, a gift from Vegan Organics is also a gift to the gentle animals that awe and amaze us. Use Code: VO10 for $10 off!

For The Hardhead

Of course, you know that guy who never takes off his hat. Adorable as he may be, he’s also stinkin’ stubborn if we’re being honest. Lids is a company with charisma that successfully caters to jock-ish types. That’s their jam. Right now, they have $15 hats for the pickiest punk on your list. This No Bad Ideas cap not only sold us with its name, but it just looks awesome. Check it out!

Who doesn’t need a pink cap that says, “Dope” in gold lettering? The Dope 24K Script Hat takes cool to a whole new level. And so will you, marvelous gift giver.

 

Right now, get 30% off + free shipping on orders of $24 or more, using Lids coupon code: FRIDAY30.

One of the most valuable gifts you can give is a book. Wordery is for the bookworms, scholars, and, you guessed it, word nerds. With free shipping and a whole lot of shelves lined with novels, memoirs, and educational tools, that reader of yours will be thrilled.

Know someone with an insatiable imagination? How about Paulette Jiles’ historical fiction novel News of the World? Set during an ever-evolving era in history, this bestselling story grounds us in the goodness of the human spirit.

 

What about the foodie who likes to keep the cooking simple, but the taste divine? Try Jamie Oliver’s 5 Ingredients. Yum!

If you have a practical procrastinator who’s wanting to spiff up their abode, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying is a popular one. Because who says organizing can’t be wildly entertaining.

For The Daredevil

Other than a first-aid kit, get that avid adventurer something they can use for their next fearless feat. Proboardshop is a super source for any thrill seeker.

The Burton High Maintenance Kit Travel Bag is for the man who can only manage with the best. Get him just that!

And look how haute this Burton Taylor Backpack is for your gal pal. It can hold a small tablet or laptop. It can also hold its own on any kind of runway.

We admit it, this is a tough one. But not impossible!

Plated has 50% off your first order, so gifting a meal box with delicious menu plans can bring comfort and joy to any ol’ grump. But make sure they like to cook! Because, you know, scrooginess.

Maybe your whiner likes wine? Wine of the Month Club is a GRAPE gift for any vino connoisseur or any GRAPE gut. (Sorry, we could keep going, but we won’t.) With Code: SPCL4U, you get 15% off and a toast to your generosity and thoughtfulness.
