The holidays are now in full throttle, so why not give your nearest and dearest this season the gifts that keep on giving by being fabulous and multi-functional? All the products below, some taken from my previous posts, are sure to delight all that are on your list this year. It is like giving multiple gifts in one. Your recipients will thank you. You’re welcome.
For the Adventure Seekers
1 – Victorinox Swiss Army Knife – $24-$200 – The SwissChamp is my pick with 33 impressive implements but still small enough for your pocket at 3 1/2″. Urbanites and rural dwellers alike will appreciate its endless adaptability. Plus it has been known to come in handy during an unforeseen emergency situation.
2 – S’well Water Bottle – $35 – polished and pretty are not adjectives often used to describe your water bottle, but this is not your average Nalgene. A sleek exterior available in a variety of colors with a high-tech outer shell that keeps water cool (or hot) for 12-24 hours. Love their 750 mL size that is built for wine and the perfect picnic and lawn seats accessory. Bonus, S’well supports WaterAid, a non-profit providing clean water and sanitation efforts to the world’s poorest communities.
For the Gadget Happy
3 – HEX Axis Wallet for iPhone – $50 – A sleek, durable leather case with card and cash slots makes it easy to talk and snap pics without removing your phone. Great to grab and go.
4 – The Basic Zip Up Fleece Hoodie by HoodieBuddie – $52 – The HoodieBuddie clothing line has a plug-in for your mp3 or phone in all its pieces, with ear buds built right into the drawstrings.
For The Entertainer
5 – Umbra Grip Coasters – $8 – This set of 6 brightly-colored coasters are a great way to simultaneously protect your countertops and label your glass when the cork is popped. Perfect for holiday hostess gift that gives a little extra.
6 – Agay of Doughnuts Menorah – $106 – This pretty stackable candleholder is pretty enough to give to both Jews and gentiles alike! Stack it together to create a unique single candleholder that can be used all year-round.
For the Beauty Queen
7 – Mirror Ball Container – $45 – Unscrew the base of this mirror to reveal a hidden compartment for valuables or other small items to tuck away quickly. The yellow is sure to pop against any modern decor
8- NARS the Multiple – $39 – This shimmery stick needs only to be applied with the fingers and adds sheen and a bit of color to eyes, lips, & cheeks. Bonus it adds moisture and antioxidants. Perfect for a girl on the go.
