5 Holiday Gift Ideas Guaranteed To Be A Hit - Santa Approved

4 min read

Holiday shopping is a nightmare if you’re visiting the mall during the peak month of December. This is more than likely the case because we all know we left our holiday shopping until the last minute...once again. Retail stores often become claustrophobic and parking lots can be a warzone not recommended for the light-hearted.

Luckily, online retailers, such as Amazon.com, have saved us in the past from shopping procrastination & large crowds. However, this year, you can get a headstart on your holiday shopping all while cozying up after your Thanksgiving meal. Here, we’ve curated a short list of customizable gifts that are just as unique as the person you are gifting them to. The best part of these gifts? They are available for online purchase, in the comfort of your bed, safe away from other crazy holiday shoppers.

Gorjana Bespoke Collection

For those looking to gift something special: Gorjana, a company founded in our neighboring city of Laguna Beach, California by wife and husband Gorjana and Jason Griffin Reidel, offers a collection full of beautiful engravable jewelry. You can custom engrave any 18K gold-plated pieces ranging from rings to bracelets and even necklaces. Our team favorites are the Bespoke Signet Ring and Bali Coin Necklace in gold. With their wide selection of jewelry, you’re bound to find something for that special someone.

Gorjana currently offers a Happiness Guarantee policy with free shipping on all orders in addition to a free jewelry roll with purchases of $150 or more.

DipWell BYOB Dip Kit

In a recent article from Cosmopolitan, dip powder manicures are said to be “the next long-lasting nail trend you’ll want to try immediately.” Thankfully, we’ve curated a round of products for the go-getters who are too busy, either being a mom, a weekend workaholic, or studying for their next big midterm. These are the gals that struggle to find the time to visit a salon, and are looking for an alternative way to budget their just-can’t-live-without beauty must-haves. Say hello to our little friend, the BYOB Kit, and create your own custom bundle with up to 6 powder choices. Bundle includes all the dip powder essentials needed for a DIY mani, to create at-home, and on your own schedule.
