I have a confession: I kind of hate exchanging gifts during the Christmas season. Not only because it takes away from why I celebrate Christmas, but also because people are so hard to shop for. If they give you a list – it just seems like they know what they’re getting and it takes all the fun of gift exchanges away.
This year, I am making you a couple of Holiday Gift Guides to help you give thoughtful gifts for your loved ones! For my very first guide, I am teaming up with a group of bloggers showcasing their gift guides – so your holiday season can be spent sipping hot cocoa around the Christmas tree and not stress-eating Auntie Ann’s pretzels at the mall.
I find it that 20-somethings are often the hardest to shop for. As the band Judah and the Lion says in their song “Twenty-Somethings”, “We just lovin’ life, we don’t got it figured out Running scared, running free full of life, got no money yeah that’s us twenty-somethings” – so yeah, if they don’t have life figured out, I guarantee you they just want you to pick out something cool and trendy for Christmas for them.
My graphic showcases both guys & girls styles. Some are clearly for men or clearly for women, but some things just depend on the personality of the person you’re gifting.
1 – Kendra Scott Tassel Necklace – Kendra Scott is all the rage this season with simple, beautiful jewelry. I guarantee any 20-somethings gal will swoon over this necklace!
2 – Canon Rebel t5 – Let them learn something new! A camera is an excellent gift for anyone, including 20 somethings who want to document their lives well.
3 – Chalkboard Cheese Tray – A 20 something is getting the opportunity to entertain for the first time, and what better way to entertain with a cheese plate?
4 – Aeropress – An aeropress makes an incredibly delicious and bold coffee drink. Mix with hot water for an americano, or drink plain as a shot of espresso.
5 – Insulated Thermos – Coffee is an integral part of any 20-somethings day – and making sure it stays warm is incredibly helpful.
6 – Blanket Scarf – Blanket Scarves are popular this year, and any gal would love one.
7 – Clarks – a nice pair of boots is a perfect gift for men or women in the winter! These clarks are stylish, and come in both mens and women’s styles!
8 – Apple Watch – Millennials love their gadgets – and an Apple watch is the icing on the cake of technology.
9 – Stanley Thermos – Coffee is an important part to anyones day – and this slightly more masculine Thermos is perfect for any man!
10 – Capri Blue Volcano Candle – If I can speak from experience here, this is the only candle worth having around. The smell is incredible and it lasts quite awhile.
11 – Cocktail Shaker – Twenties are the perfect time to learn how to make an incredible, classy cocktail.
12 – Goodnight Brew – Craft beer is extra popular among millennials and twenty somethings – give the gift of laughter with this goodnight brew parody book!
13 – Beard Wax – I bet you know a twenty something with a beard. Gift them beard wax for style and grooming. This is perfect for stocking stuffers!
14 – Crowley Record Player – Playing records is back! This vintage suitcase style record player is popular and affordable.
15 – French Press – Twenty somethings love a good cup of joe, and a French Press makes the best cup around, next to a local coffee shop.
