Finds’ Faves: Gift Guide for Most Everyone

Welcome to my second holiday gift guide in as many days! There are SO many great choices out there. This guide offers some gifts for folks who like want to be more stylish, like to try new things, travel and like gifts that give back. I could probably write 20 more versions but don’t worry, I won’t. Check out my Gift Guide for Fit Folks – there are some sure things on there for the fitness focused folks in your life. I am also planning a stocking stuffers post, so stay tuned! Without further ado – awesome gifts for everyone many people in your life…

For the Stylish/Wanna Be Stylish:

Stitch Fix Gift Card – It may be too late to find the perfect outfit for the the gal or girl in your life, but you can get a Stitch Fix gift card. What’s Stitch Fix? It’s an online personal styling service. Stitch Fix has women’s sizes XS-XXL (0-16) and men’s sizes XS-XXL (waist sizes 28-42), as well as maternity and petite clothing. The recipient fills out a style profile. Each month (or time frame that works for them), they receive a shipment with five items. Then, he/she chooses what he/she likes and returns the rest for free. The $20 styling fee is applied toward anything purchased. My fave feature, if you buy all 5 pieces, you get 25% off. I was late to the Stitch Fix party, but I love my quarterly deliveries so far. It’s a great gift!

For Someone Who Likes to Try New Things:

Fun Subscriptions – Most people won’t buy subscription boxes, but getting a subscription is like being gifted over and over. Here are some that I dig:

  • Other Finds’ Faves: Undiscovered Kitchen has a ton of artisan holiday gifts under $35 and America’s Best Organics has awesome organic food and spa/home gifts from amazing companies that you definitely want to buy from. I also love Vegan Cuts (snacks AND beauty products) and Urthbox – perfect for the health conscious/veg/vegan recipient.

For the Do-Gooder:

Sudara “Punjammies” – These pajamas for men, women and kids are helping to make a better, safer life for women in India. The Indian-made pajamas are made by women taught to be seamstresses to keep them out of human trafficking, and give them a new, better community to be part of. Plus, they look (and feel) awesome. It’s a win-win! From $29 sudara.org

fw14_men_s_harvest_giftboxPACT is “obsessed with a big idea: Clothes that make the world a better place.” They make socks, underwear and clothes that are ethically manufactured with fabrics that feel good and go easy on the environment. This season, every purchase helps lend a hand to low-income women entrepreneurs who want to start their own business. Anyone who says they don’t want socks for a gift has never tried PACT. (I love my PACT undies, too!) Right now, get 25% off (click code on site) and order by 12/20 to get in time for Christmas.

Shinola Watches – Speaking of Detroit, Shinola watches is bringing manufacturing jobs back to Detroit. They are training workers and making high quality watches with great partners. They make other high quality products and even bikes, too!

Here are more great do-gooder gift ideas from Ariana Mount, New Jersey Monthly and Krista Rae Hayes.

I must admit this was tough!  I could do this for days! Sharing my fitness faves was a bit easier as “taste” is not as much of an issue.

    I’ve never heard of the “Human Charger” before, but I will have to look into it. It sounds interesting!

  2. Erin R. says:

    I know what you mean about the Kindle. I never considered getting one, but then my boss gave me one for Christmas 7 or 8 years ago because she loved hers so much. Now I can’t go without, for all the reasons you listed! AND the county library here has a pretty good digital catalog, so I don’t blow all my money on new books.

  3. Alyssa says:

    These are some great ideas! My husband I do gift “grab” exchanges at each of our families for Christmas so every year I try to think of something new to purchase! I think jewelry can be a great idea!

  4. Shinola watches are so gorgeous.
    I love that you have PACT up there! I wonder if it is the same PACT that my aunt-in-law used to work for?

  5. Kathy Davis says:

    You really have some great ideas. I’m shopping too late to get the PJ’s in time for Christmas, but that’s a great idea for gifts throughout the year. I’m getting the Ohyo bottle for my daughter’s stocking. And, I’m checking out the Human Charger. Sounds great, but I’ve never heard of it. Happy holidays! Happy 2017!

  6. Amber Ludwig says:

    You have some great gifts here! Some items I wouldn’t have know about otherwise. Brilliant!

  9. You listed some of my favorites plus a few I have never heard of before! Great list!

  10. Deb E says:

    I will have to check out the HumanCharger as well. I have a light box I use when I can’t soak up enough California sunshine! I have a Kindle Fire HD and a Nook for black and white viewing. Really prefer black and white, which I think is odd so I’d probably like the Paperwhite.

    I was think about asking for Try the World this Christmas. Hmmm…
