With the holiday season right around the corner, it’s time to begin your holiday shopping. There are most likely dozens of people on your holiday gift list—your spouse, kids, siblings. One group of people you don’t want to forget this Christmas are your friends. They’re the ones who’ve been with you through thick and thin, which means they’re deserving of a token of appreciation for being by your side.
If you’re scratching your head wondering what to get your friends for the holidays, don’t fret. Below, we’ll go over six unique gift ideas that will show them just how much you love them.
1. Face Mask Tie Dye Kit
2020 has been a year for the history books. With the coronavirus pandemic putting a halt to virtually every plan we had in place for this year, people have been forced to isolate at home, practice social distancing, and wear a mask out in public.
While masks can be uncomfortable and a blemish on a perfectly curated outfit, it doesn’t have to be. Have some fun this year by surprising your pals with a face mask tie dye kit that allows them to design their own unique facemask with fun and bright colors. Of course, it’s still advisable to gift your friends or pals a CN95 face mask for better protection.
2. Christmas Sweater
Ugly Christmas sweater parties are one of the top highlights of the cold winter season. What looks like it should belong in the back of grandma’s closet, ugly Christmas sweaters make the perfect theme for festive gatherings. However, finding the perfect ugly holiday sweater can be a challenge, especially with sweater-seekers snatching them up off the shelves at local thrift shops in the blink of an eye. Fortunately, you can order a women’s Christmas sweater online that come with festive designs and funny sayings.
3. Subscription Box
If your BFF is too far to visit during the holiday season, you can still send your love with a subscription box. The beauty of subscription boxes is that you can order virtually anything straight to their door. Some examples include:
- Food: Is your sidekick a foodie? If so, order them a food subscription box that matches their taste buds, whether it be a vegan food box or an Italian-inspired food box.
- Makeup: For the beauty guru, send a makeup subscription box that surprises them with new color palettes and products every month. Beauty and wellness boxes make perfect gifts for those trying to keep their body and skin in the best shape.
- Clothing: Fashionistas are going to love a clothing subscription box. With a clothing subscription box, you can send hand-picked clothing that fits their style.
- Coffee: You can never go wrong with a cup of liquid gold. With a coffee subscription box, your best friend will be able to try new and unique roasts that will help them get their mornings started.
When choosing the perfect subscription box, think about what they enjoy and like. Then, from there, you can do a quick Google search to see if such a subscription box exists.
4. Weighted Blanket
As the snowy winter nights head our way, send your friend some warmth with a weighted blanket. Not only will a weighted blanket keep your friends warm and cozy on frigid nights, but they also deliver Deep Touch Pressure (DTP), which creates a relaxing calming effect. Weighted blankets are perfect for relieving stress, promoting sleep, and relieving symptoms of depression and anxiety.
5. Bluetooth Beanie
Headphones can be a bit obtrusive when you’re trying to keep your ears warm with a hat. To allow your friend to listen to their tunes in comfort while remaining stylish and keeping their head warm, send them a Bluetooth knit beanie. A Bluetooth-enabled knit beanie will allow them to listen to podcasts, audiobooks, music, and make phone calls, hands-free.
6. Wall Art
Another great gift idea is sending your friends custom wall art and prints they can hang up on their wall, place on a desk, or lean on a mantle. When you look at prints and wall art to send, think of the style of their home. Are they minimalist? Do they have a Scandinavian vibe? Or are they rustic with a farmhouse theme? Sticking to their interior design preferences will ensure you pick a piece of art they can use to decorate their home.
Finding unique gifts to get your friends for the holidays can be a challenge with so much to choose from. With this list of six one-of-a-kind items, you’ll bring a smile to their face in no time.
