French Press Coffee Maker

Enjoying 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 it with Keurig. Plus, it’s more environmentally 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.

Electric Kettle

An electric kettle is definitely a must-have for tea lovers. I like this glass tea kettle. It’s able to boil water quickly, completely cordless when off the base and easy to handle.

Tea Infuser

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 are like me and loves 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.

Kindle Paperwhite e-reader

Most minimalists would love to have a Kindle Paperwhite. This Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof, light and thin, and 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.

More features come with a Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition like hassle-free wireless charging and 32GB storage.

Audible Membership

Audible membership is so practical. Listening to the audiobooks wherever you are with the Audible app. Enjoy the audiobook on your commute, doing chores or cooking.

Noise Cancelling Headphones

This pair of wireless noise-canceling headphones is one of the best quality in the market. One of the best gifts for a music lover or a big fan of audiobooks.

Touchscreen Winter Gloves

Keep your hands warm with these touchscreen winter gloves so you can still be able to use your devices outside without exposing your hands in the cold weather.

Plaid Blanket Scarf

I love blanket scarves 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. This stylish plaid blanket scarf is perfect for winter that will keep 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 it keeps me focused on the goals. If you’re looking for a dated and classic 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. Using a planner helps me stay organized and be more productive.

Reusable Shopping Bag

Say no to plastic bags when going shopping! These reusable shopping bags are cute and lightweight, with long handles for easier carrying. They can also hold up to 50 lbs. of stuff and are machine washable.

Robot Vacuum

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.

Gift Cards

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.

Experience Gifts

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.

DIY Gifts

I’ve always loved homemade gifts. Give a unique DIY homemade gift this year by making DIY Christmas potpourri

Homemade Baked Goods

I am not a baker. But I do love baking Christmas cookies at this time of 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 holiday gift-giving.

Your Time and Love

The holidays are a good chance to spend quality time with your family and friends. I love 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.
