Gift-giving season is right around the corner! Haven’t started the daunting task of gift shopping for all your loved ones this holiday season? Don’t worry, you are absolutely not alone. So many people shop for gifts later in the season and find picking out gifts for their loved ones to be more stressful than fun. So, I have created a short and sweet list of ideas to help get you started and (hopefully) save you some stress this holiday season! 

1. Pela Phone Case 

These phone cases are perfect for the environmentally-conscious person you’re shopping for. These cases are 100% compostable and yet still super cute! While they are on the pricey side, they will last a long time and help reduce your environmental footprint. Pela also makes AirPods cases!

2. Gymshark Clothes 

These cute, trendy, and durable gym clothes from Gymshark are sure to be a hit for your loved one who constantly goes to the gym, but really they can be for anyone! Who doesn’t love getting new clothes? These are a nice find because their clothing is high quality for a much cheaper price tag than brands like Lululemon and Athleta.

3. Candles

Who doesn’t appreciate a good candle? Candles from That Gay Guy Company not only provide an incredible scent sure to freshen up any room you put them in, but they have some funny sayings decorating them as well. Buying from this company means that you will not only be supporting a Michigan-based business, but also organizations that support the LGBTQ+ community. Gift these to your favorite candle connoisseur!

4. Cat Scratcher House

This one goes out to all the cat moms and dads reading this article! From my experience with my own cat, these have always been a hit. Not only are they adorable, but they last a long time and provide quite a lot of entertainment for your cat (and give them something else besides your furniture to scratch!). An example from Amazon is listed below, but you can find these all over the place!

5. Personalized Pop-Out Photo Album

This is a great gift for a significant other or a close friend or family member! This is essentially a mini photo album that fits into a small box, but when you open it, all of the pictures fold out. You can choose anywhere from eight to twelve photos (with the price ranging accordingly), and on the box you can choose a date, name(s), and a saying to be put on it. You are also supporting a small business by shopping on Etsy!
