As we approach the holidays, many of us will be shopping for gifts for the special people in our lives. Sometimes we know exactly what will bring joy into the lives of our loved ones, but other times we’re at a loss. Fortunately, there are plenty of gifts out there that anyone will love. Here are some of my favorites.
1. Sippity® Hot Cocoa
Sippity® hot cocoa is a great gift because it is a gift that has eight servings so people will enjoy it (and remember you) for 8 days. It’s easy to make, too, simply add hot water, microwave and enjoy. It is offered in a variety of flavors, so there’s something for everyone. You can also buy it in various sizes depending on your budget – it makes for a great stocking stuffer or a Secret Santa-friendly gift. Great holiday free shipping promotion. Buy them here.
2. Homemade Cookies

Cookies make great gifts for the “extra” people in your life: those people that you see often but don’t exchange lavish gifts with (again, they can enjoy them-and remember you-for days). You can make hundreds of cookies at one time if you were inclined. All you have to do is present them nicely and they make a great gift.
3. Smartphone Camera Lens
These days, everyone has a smartphone with a camera. Some people love taking pictures of their friends and family. These lenses fit on to the camera eye of most common smartphones, giving you the ability to add all sorts of effects to your photos.
4. Personalized Pint Glass Set
For some people, there’s nothing more relaxing than kicking back, watching the game and enjoying their favorite brew. Most people drink from the can or bottle in their own home because they don’t have an appropriate beer glass. These pint glasses can also be personalized so you can add that extra touch.
5. Spa in a Basket
For that person who likes to be pampered, this basket is a spa experience in their own home (again, they can enjoy them-and remember you-for days). It comes with bath gel, soap, lotion and bath salts in delicious aromas, as well as a wood massage tool, sponge, and comfortable slippers. Plus, once everything is gone they still have a nice basket.
6. Apples to Apples Party Box
This is one of those gifts you open right away. “Apples to Apples” is a game of hilarious combinations. Just deal out the cards and you’re ready to play. Each round is filled with surprising and outrageous comparisons from a wide range of people, places, things and events.
