1. For Your Significant Other

Finding the perfect gift, year after year, to show your significant other that you care about them can be so difficult. Should you get them something useful, like a household appliance? Or run to the jewelry store for the millionth time?

The perfect gift can be a combination of both—a stylish and classy watch.

For a limited time only, when you order any watch and strap combination from MVMT, they’ll package them together in a gorgeous gift box. These watches for men and women—which start at just $95—are chic and minimalist, making them the perfect accessory for literally any outfit.

2. For Your Dad (Or Any Other Hard-To-Buy-For Guy In Your Life)

Men are truly the hardest people on the planet to shop for. What do you get someone who always says they don’t need anything when you ask what they want for Christmas?

Your hard-to-buy-for guy may not be familiar with the idea of self-care, but he should be. Lucky Tiger’s Essential Grooming Kit will make him look and feel relaxed this winter.

The kit includes liquid shaving cream, aftershave/face tonic, moisturizers and face wash. The products are all-natural and are designed specifically for men, so you can feel good gifting something that was actually made for a man’s skin. Plus, the nourishing antioxidants and vitamins will promote healthy skin while reducing razor burn.

You can snag this kit for just $49. Plus, since shipping is free, you don’t have to worry about beating the crowds at the mall to shop for the man who wants for nothing!

3. For The Hostess

If you’re planning to have Christmas dinner at a friend or family member’s home this year, you’ll want to bring a hostess gift of course.

The Very Merry Modern Centerpiece from 1-800-Flowers puts a truly original twist on a traditional centerpiece. Their florists start with a cluster of blooms for a contemporary feel, then add in natural elements for some rustic charm. At the center is a clear cube vase with a tea light candle, perfect for setting an intimate and cozy mood during the holidays.

Plus, there’s a centerpiece to fit every budget. A small is $59.99, a medium is $69.99 and a large is $79.99.

 4. For Your Mom

Your mom is always cooking up delicious meals to bring your family together.

And yet, she almost never splurges on new kitchen gadgets for herself. This Christmas, give her the Cuisinart electric pressure cooker from Lowe’s so that she can spend more time chatting and spending time with family and friends.

This clever gadget cooks up to 70 percent faster than conventional methods. It comes with a digital thermostat, and it’s dishwasher safe!

The 6-quart version is just $77.21 for a limited time (it regularly retails for $99.95), so it won’t break the bank. You can pick one up in Lowe’s stores or online.


Happy holidays—and happy gifting!
