It's that time of the year! The holiday season is in full swing, so we thought we'd share some of our favorite ideas and gift picks for 2021. Everyone pitched in with ideas, so there's a range here we hope can give you some gift-giving inspiration this year.
23andMe: Know where ya come from.
A Vacation: My partner and I do this. I get the plane tickets and she gets the hotels. Experiences > stuff.
GiveAShare: The gift of a share. Start investing early. Why not try GameStop?
Courant device chargers: It can charge multiple devices and be a catch-all for your desk clutter.
Whoop wearable: Keep on the pulse of your health and activity while a collective fitness community cheers you on. We've got 3 out of 6 of the Kicks crew in on this one.
Eargasm Earplugs: Now that concerts are back in full swing, this is the best gift for a music lover and frequent concert-goer.
Wondery Plus Subscription: I'm a podcast junkie and Wondery gives the best fix for in-depth serialized content and early access to content otherwise found on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Audiobook this one: Matthew McConaughey's Greenlights
Atlas Pasta Maker: Food is too convenient and let's be honest, I have never felt like family at olive garden. This pasta maker is a fun kitchen tool that makes you appreciate the process of pasta.
Earlywood Designs: If you appreciate businesses that dive into the roots of their product offering, this company nails it. Traditional handmade wooden utensils are heirloom-style pieces that will last a lifetime if you treat them right.
Knickerbocker Goobalinis: When your genius joke-maker gets cold, this hat will keep your head warm and look ultra-fisherman whilst you do it.
Woodsplitter: One part efficient, two parts danger; once you split, you won't quit. Daddy loves to chop wood now with this convenient take-a-long kindling splitter.
Dehydrator: Nothing screams "keeper" like a man who makes his own garlic powder. While you think he's out with the boys causing a ruckus, he's actually at home slicing garlic to micro-slices in order to produce the finest quality garlic powder. Some say he's a vampire hunter, I say he's Italian.
Ember Mug: This mug charges up to keep your coffee hot for 80 minutes. For any coffee-loving sipper like me, this is a great gift. It feels like a ceramic mug and keeps your coffee at a customized temperature you choose with an app. Pair it with some Blue Bottle Coffee to go all out.
Rousseau Plant Care Light: For all the plant moms and dads, the perfect, aesthetically pleasing grow light. This keeps plants happy and healthy through the winter, while also looking cute under a little spotlight. Do note you have to buy the wall stand separately.
Estelle drinkware: These are the most gorgeous glasses in every color you can imagine. So buy a set in a specific color, mix of colors, or customize your own set to give. Super luxurious and gorgeous.
Book of the Month Club membership: For the bookworm in your life. They say those who read fiction live longer. (Insert shrugging emoji here)
Penn & Beech gift card: Experience gifts are fun, candles are fun, so this is the best of both worlds. They have great locations to snag a drink or meal before or after as well.
Baby's first smart home stuff: Homepod Minis, ecobee smart thermostat for example. If you've got Homepod speakers, you've got the foundation for a simple smart home. A smart thermostat is a relatively cheap and easy way to kick your home into the smart generation.
Pet portrait commission: If your gift recipient is an artsy type, there's an Instagram artist or twelve that earns their immediate double tap. Those artists are probably booked for 2021 commissions, but a personalized pet portrait arriving after the New Year is better than a rushed, thoughtless gift! You find plenty of these on etsy.
Not a specific gift, but normalize asking what someone wants instead of taking a stab in the dark — Intentionality is everything. Instead of gifting some random trinket just to gift something, let's normalize asking our loved ones what they'd actually like to receive. They've probably got a list a mile long that would point you in a thoughtful direction.
Nespresso Vertuo Plus Deluxe Coffee and Espresso Machine: Coffee is always a good idea and as much as I drink coffee, this pays for itself in no time.
Instant Vortex Plus 6 Quart Air Fryer: You can quite honestly cook all of your meals in this thing and it's a healthier option than deep-fried foods, but still just as tasty
Bovaconti Gift Card: Shopping small and local is always a good idea and as we said before, coffee is also always a great idea.
Capri Blue Volcano Candle: This is a classic, clean scent that is a fan favorite across the board.
We hope this is helpful, or at least a bit entertaining. Have some gift ideas you'd think we'd like? Head to our Instagram and let us know!
