Top Gifts for 2023

Happy Friday everyone! It’s officially COLD! It’s also that time of the year when you have to start finding gifts for your friends and family. I take pride in my gift giving but I’ll be the first to admit it is not easy. If it’s for a work associate it can be hard to know exactly what they want or need. If it’s for a family member it may be hard to top what you did last year. If you’re dating someone apparently you have to worry about what message your gift sends. Then there’s finding gifts for the people who say that have everything they want or want you to surprise them. When it comes down to it I always try and make the gift personal to the person I’m getting it for (*Not a fan of white elephant/bad santa or any gift exchange game*). But when that’s not possible I go for something I, to the best of my knowledge, think they don’t have and that I think is really cool or useful. Something I think would be a good gift for almost anyone. Like the world around me I have fallen down the online shopping rabbit hole. I’ve always hated physically going from store to store hoping they have something in stock. Thanks to online shopping I probably do 99% of my holiday shopping on the computer or my phone from the comfort of my own home. Last week I focused on gifts under $25 for smaller gift exchanges. Today I’m just going to go over my top gifts online that I think most would appreciate getting. No strict price limit, no person in mind, just great gifts. As always I’d love to hear any ideas or thoughts you have. I know no one wants to give away their secrets but if you see something cool and think it could help someone out make sure to share your ideas!

Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Instant Film Camera

Approximately $200

This gift is awesome! I know you have someone on your list who is into pictures and nostalgia! This awesome camera gives you that 90’s feel and gives you instant pictures. No need for developing or getting your pictures printed. Take them and hang them all at once!

CASPER Sleep Weighted Blanket

Approximately $75

Have you ever tried one of these? It feels like a warm, giant hug. How could you not want one? If you have anxiety these also can apparently help some people. It does give you a comforting feeling while also keeping you warm.

BIRTHDATE CO. Birthdate Candle

Approximately $50

I’m not even into astrology and I can admit these are cool! The reviews are awesome and apparently the candles smell amazing. Also this is a great way to make the gift personal and meaningful! If the person is into astrology this gift is a homerun.

NOSTALGIA 64-Ounce Margarita Maker & Slushie Machine

Approximately $70

If you know me I’m all about a slushie, smoothie and any kind of frozen drink. This Margarita and slushie maker will turn your house into the place to be this summer. Or you can take it with you and always be the highlight of the party. Everyone loves frozen drinks!

PETCUBE Interactive WiFi Pet Monitoring Camera

Approximately $90

If you have a pet you can’t tell me this wouldn’t be an amazing gift to receive. I am always either worried or curious as to what my pets are getting into while I’m gone. Especially for any decent period of time. Well now you can worry no more and also surprise them with a treat here and there easing their anxiety from you being gone.

Gallery Perfect Gallery Wall Kit

Approximately $70

As someone who's still trying to decorate his house and walls I love this. If you have memories you want to display forever this is a great way to do it. It allows you to feature many pictures in an artistic classy way on your wall.

CROWNFUL Mini Fridge

Approximately $50

I’m a big mini fridge guy. I wanted one forever but didn’t get one until college and it was a game changer. Food and drinks right next to your bed. Say less. Also if they have a skincare routine it can be used for more than food and beverages. Anything that needs to be kept cold can be right at your disposal where you get ready and do your daily routine.

Solo Stove Yukon Fire Pit 2.0

Approximately $400

This is a game changer. Almost completely smokeless, this is something everyone can enjoy. And you wont smell like smoke afterwards. I’m all about hosting and having an inviting outdoor space. A firepit is usually always included in that and this is one of the best I’ve seen.

Apple Air Tag

Approximately $27

I guarantee you know someone who has a habit of losing things. I’ve gotten pretty good about putting things in a specific place but every now and then I’ll find myself looking for my keys, wallet, phone or something else important. It’s not only incredibly annoying, time consuming but it’s an extreme stresser. For those few minutes I think I lost my wallet and I’m going to have to cancel and reorder all my cards and ID's. I am in a full panic. An Apple tag is an amazing way to avoid that and help you keep track of your important items.

Theragun Mini

Approximately $150

I’m not a doctor so I can’t speak on the medical benefits of these but I can tell you I have used the Theragun and they feel amazing. Whether you have a sore back, legs or really anything this thing feels amazing. It can take some getting used to but if you don’t wanna go get a massage every time you’re sore this is a great alternative that will save you a ton of money in the long run.
