Thank you to all of our partners for helping us create this special sponsored holiday gift guide. Best wishes in bringing smiles and bright spirits to your friends and family this holiday season!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and what makes it so wonderful are the friends and family we gather close and the time we spend together. The magic of the holiday season comes from the light in your child’s as he builds a gingerbread house or the way your grandchild smiles as she sings Jingle Bells at the top of her lungs.
Holiday magic is made when we share our light and love with each other. It’s why we love giving gifts. We give a small piece of ourselves to someone else and seeing their face light up with joy brings a rush of happiness that is like a gift in return.
We’ve scoured the web for the most special gifts that are sure to make spirits bright in your homes.
1. The Softest Clothes To Cozy Up In
My love language is anything cozy and this year, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with UpWest clothing. From soft puffer coats and sherpa pullovers to the softest pj’s and joggers you’ll ever slip into, it’s easy to crush on UpWest’s casual cool vibe and fantastic prices.
Watch for their strong promos this holiday season and make sure to use code FIRSTORDER to get 20% off your entire first order.
2. At-Home Hair Removal Devices
I can’t think of a better gift. At-home hair removal devices just may be the most incredible innovation for the every day person. No need to spend thousands of dollars on laser hair removal when you can do it affordably at home. I’ve been using this one over the past 6 months and I can’t believe how quickly I saw results.
After five treatments, the hair on my legs practically stopped growing. It’s great for tricky areas too, like underarms, bikini lines, and neck links on guys. And Smoothskin has unlimited flashes (unlike other IPL devices) so it’s a one-time investment that can last you forever! Treatments are quick…it takes me about 10 minutes to do my whole body. The device is premium quality and made in the UK (an outlet converter is included).
Get an extra 10% off with code HDS10 through the end of the year!
While you’re there, CurrentBody has all kinds of cool beauty devices like this anti-aging sleep mask (it makes it impossible to stress and wrinkle your face. It also helps you get to sleep easier.)
3. Yummy Crates for Kids
As a parent to four kids who have way too many toys, I’m always looking for things that my kids can do. KiwiCo is a favorite in our house that sparks joy and creativity through their fun STEM crates and now their brand new Yummy Crates! I’m so excited for this! Kids can learn the science behind cooking while having a whole lot of fun.
Yummy Crates are geared toward kids ages 6-14 and each box has a theme you can choose from: Tasty & Toasty, Rise & Shine, or Bright & Delightful. You can choose it as a one-time gift, or a sweet monthly surprise so that your gift keeps giving all year long.
And if you’re looking for unique gifts for kids that aren’t toys, check out the KiwiCo Store with so many fun options. (My kids had a BLAST with these last year!)
4. Creative Kid Gifts
When I was a kid, I practically lived for the day when a new Highlights magazine would hit our mailbox. I think I raced my brother there to see who would get it first. Now it makes me equally happy that my kids love Highlights for Children as well. Highlights makes the best gift!
They have some fun options for helping kids get creative, like their holiday gift sets that are packed with Hidden Picture books (my kids’ favorites), puzzles, and a year’s subscription to Highlight’s magazine. You’ll also want to check out the big books of Things To Do, Things To Draw, and Things To Write to spark kids creativity. (A lifesaver for those, “I’m bored” times!)
And get an additional 35% off + free shipping on ALL Christmas gift sets with code HDSGS35. Yay!
5. Noise-Cancelling Earbuds
Now this is a gift that satisfies everyone on your list. Bose Quiet Comfort Earbuds are the world’s most effective noise-cancelling personal mini speakers that are low-profile and deliver BIG sound. Whether your teen wants to vibe out to music on her bus ride or your spouse devours true-crime podcasts, Bose Earbuds are affordable with standout audio performance.
Get in on the special Bose holiday offers going on this season and get some incredible products for incredible prices.
6. Custom Table Linens from Loom & Table
The same luxury table linens that you see in top-tier hotels, resorts, and restaurants are now available for you and your table. What a great gift for moms and mothers-in-law! And best yet, Loom & Table tablecloths are custom-made to fit your table exactly. With lots of elegant designs to choose from, this is a gift that will be passed down for generations.

7. Beauty Stocking Stuffers
Stocking stuffers just may be my favorite part of Christmas morning. Seeing how many small things you can stuff into a stocking is so much fun, and it’s even more fun watching my family open them. I always stick a few of these Sally Beauty stocking stuffers into my girls’ stockings and I love gifting them to friends as well.
8. Chocolate Greeting Cards
If you’re looking for unique and sweet gift ideas for teachers, neighbors, friends, and stockings, you have to check out Sweeter Cards. They are raising the chocolate bar on greeting cards. Their holiday cards are the cutest! Write a special message inside and send them with your kids to surprise their teachers, or drop them off on all your neighbors’ doorsteps.
