Here you’ll find my go-to gifts for my mail person, date-night sitter, coworkers, and all the other people that made it onto my nice list. Give these thoughtful picks on their own, or pair them with a larger gift if you like. They’re all under $10, so you may want to snag a few extras in case you accidentally leave someone off your list and need to wrap something up at the last minute. Happy gifting!
In this day and age, there’s room for all kinds of interior styles — maximalism, monochrome, mid-century, you name it. But there’s really something to be said about the minimalism decor movement, dominated by a simple, clutter-less lifestyle. To some, the concept of minimalism may come off as inaccessible and unattainable. But at its core, it’s all about shopping with intention and curating the pieces you really need or love.
What’s better than getting a great gift? Giving one, of course!

Need help getting started? We’re rounding up our favorite good-for-everyone gifts that are sure to earn you a few very grateful thank-you cards.
There’s a misconception that presenting someone with a gift card is the easy way out of gift-giving; that they require little to no thoughtfulness and can be handed off to anybody on your list. But that couldn’t be further from the truth, if you ask me. Gift cards unlock loads of possibilities for your giftees, and taking care to choose just the right gift card is all a part of the fun.
A great desktop organizer? An avocado pool float? An air fryer that will make you feel like a high-end chef? Yup, it’s all there.

Whether you’re in the market for a housewarming gift or you need some last-minute holiday gifts, Amazon has you covered with these thoughtful finds.
From gardeners and workout fans to self-care advocates and new homeowners, this list has gift ideas for absolutely every person you need to buy for this year. A few of these presents, such as the gorgeous scented candles and tie-dye napkins, are great to put aside for the next unexpected gift-giving event, too (or, you know, great to buy for yourself — we won’t judge).
Quality rest is truly one of the best gifts you can give. From silk eye masks and essential oil mists to comfy blankets and super-supportive pillows, tons of awesome products out there can help your loved ones achieve that blissful state of deep, deep sleep. And to help you find the perfect present for everyone on your list, we rounded up 23 of the best sleep gifts out there — even if said gift is to yourself.
It’s hard not to love board games. They’re fun and nostalgic, and you can enjoy them with family and friends of all ages. Maybe their best feature of all is that you don’t have to be on your phone or computer to use them, which means that they’re a great way to log off, unwind, and de-stress.
When you need to buy a gift for someone, are you that person frantically running from store to store or wildly clicking “Buy Now” on several websites? Here’s a not-so-secret fact: That person is a lot of us, doing last-minute shopping, whether it’s for the holidays, an anniversary, a birthday, a bridal shower — you get the picture.
Advent calendars have morphed into many different things over the years, from wall hangings with 24 tiny cardboard doors that open to reveal a piece of chocolate each day, to daily affirmations or hidden surprises, but the message is still the same: The countdown to Christmas (or whichever holiday you can’t wait to celebrate) is on! And while the holidays continue to look different amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, an Advent calendar is the perfect way to celebrate the festive season.
The ideal present is all about balance. Yes, you want to make sure your loved one will use and love the gift, but the real trick is ensuring the present is something that they will enjoy and that they wouldn’t usually splurge on for themselves. It should feel like a treat. That’s why gift-giving can be difficult, especially if it’s for someone you don’t know very well or who is notoriously hard to shop for (*cough* dads *cough*).
No matter where you stand on winter and cold weather, there’s one feeling synonymous with the season that’s so easy to get behind: coziness. It may seem like we reached peak coziness last year but, with more unpredictability looming, I have a suspicion the upcoming months may mean more time at home yet again. Don’t stress, though — consider this holiday season, whatever it may hold, a new opportunity to get your hygge on and reset your relaxation routine.
