French Press Coffee Maker
Enjoy a steaming cup of coffee is part of my morning routine. If you haven’t used a French press coffee maker before, you need to give it a try.
A French press coffee maker is an inexpensive coffee maker when you compare with Keurig. Plus, it’s more environmental friendly.
You just only need the hot water and ground coffee beans with this French press coffee maker to brew a perfect cup of coffee. No more tiny plastic cups dump in the landfill. And, the coffee grounds are a great addition to the garden and compost pile.
You may also love to use the tea infuser to brew the tea. I enjoy having a cup of fresh full flavored tea in winter. It is easy to use and clean, and this set of 4 can also be run in the dishwasher.
Pure Beeswax Candles
Be careful that most scented candles are made of paraffin wax that releases harmful toxins into your home. If you’re like me love to place candles to make the home feel cozier and purify the indoor air, buy the 100% pure beeswax candles. Or if you want to make DIY beeswax candles, try this easy recipe.
Most minimalist would love to have a Kindle Paperwhite. This Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof, light and thin, the built-in adjustable light lets you read comfortably in bright sunlight, day and night. It can make reading even more enjoyable in bed, at the beach or while commuting to work.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
Touchscreen Winter Gloves
Keep your hands warm with this touchscreen winter gloves so you can still be able to use your devices outside without exploding your hands in the cold weather.
Plaid Blanket Scarf
I love blanket scarf so much. It is practical for everyday use in winter. You can roll it up as a pillow or take it when you travel on the plane. It’s an elegant scarf that keeps you warm and cozy.
I love using a paper planner to plan the week, month and year ahead. It is one of the best ways to stay motivated and keep me focused on the goals. If you’re looking for a dated and classic black planner, this one is great. I personally use a Midori Traveler’s Notebook to do my bullet journaling and I always have 3 different inserts in it. It helps me stay organized and productive.
Reusable Shopping Bag
Say no to plastic bags when going shopping. These reusable shopping bags are lightweight, cute and stylish, and they have big handles which make you carry comfortably. They can also hold up to 50 lbs. of stuff, machine washable and come with a pouch for storage.
I love my vacuum cleaner that works so well both on my hard floor and carpet. It has a strong suction power and the price is so affordable. I’ve always recommended it to my friends when they need to replace the old one. I’m happy with this vacuum though, I’m planning to get a robot vacuum in order to cut down on the cleaning time.
Who doesn’t like gift cards? I like giving teachers gift cards. You can’t go wrong with the Amazon gift cards and Starbucks gift cards.
What about giving a gift of experiences this year? Gifting experiences create memories and so much fun that they will never forget. Ideas like weekend getaways, concert tickets, spa, photography courses, dancing classes, etc.
I’ve always loved healthy homemade gifts. Jen has some awesome healthy homemade gift ideas share with you that you don’t want to miss.
Homemade Baked Goods
I am not a baker. But I do love baking Christmas cookies at this time of the year. Baking Christmas cookies is a special part of the holidays for our family. We love baking them and sharing them with friends and family. They are always perfect for the holiday gift giving.
Your Time and Love
The holidays are a good chance to spend quality time with your family and friends. I like to have a nice dinner with my old friends. We eat, chat and laugh a lot. Life is busy and the holiday is the perfect time to bond and spend time together.
I hope you found this gift guide helpful. Are you going to buy a gift for yourself this Christmas? What is the best gift that you’ve ever received? Please share in the comments.
