Something for Everyone: Holiday Gift Guide 2019

Wonder what to get for all the special people in your life this holiday season? We’ve curated a list of our top gifts for everyone in our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide – from kids to adults and families too. Happy giving!

  1. Fortune & Frame: This beautiful collection of heirloom jewelry, influence by centuries-old poison jewelry will steal your heart. After selecting a locket (we love the fortune cookie), or capsule piece (check out the heart + arrow bracelet), choose a secret fortune-scroll to be tucked inside for the recipient to always carry and remember.
  2. Headspace: One of the best gifts is guidance in finding clarity and peace, every day, and during the busy holiday season too. In the midst of my second year of using the Headspace app, I can attest that it indeed enhances my life with meditation and mindfulness support. Headspace even has mediations for kids, buddy features, a family plan option and more.
  3. oNecklace: Nameplate necklaces have certainly made a comeback – and we love the variety and options in the oNecklace collection. With a plethora of fonts and materials (from 14k – to sterling silver – to rose-gold plated and more) it’s easy to find meaningful personalized pieces for every gift-giving budget.
  4. Lucky Fortune Blind Collectible Bracelets – Kids and tweens alike will adore opening a toy fortune cookie charm with a surprise Lucky Fortune bracelet and fortune inside. Best of all, the two packs are intended to share with a special friend or sibling too – all at the perfect stocking-stuffer price point.
  5. Wildflower CBD Cool Stick: I’ve spent the past year testing topical CBD sticks and ointments to help curb pesky headaches and found the best-of-the-best in Wildflower’s CBD cool stick. Gift this to anyone suffering from chronic or moderate pain and you’ll be certain to stay on their nice list for life.
  6. Lucky Fortune Collector’s Case: After cracking open a toy fortune cookie to reveal a special key – unlock this Lucky Fortune Collector’s Case to find hidden treasures, including five exclusive new Lucky Fortune bracelets. With secret compartments, fun hooks, and stands – there are tons of ways to organize all the treasured Lucky Fortune charm bracelets, jewelry, and trinkets too.
  7. Nintendo Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Double Pack: Nintendo switch continues to be all the rage and a new generation of Pokémon has arrived just in time for the holidays! Partner with other Trainers to join in Max Raid Battles, control the camera in the vast Wild Area, enjoy new and never-seen-before-Pokémon, and so much more in the hottest game of the season. This double pack is sure to please any Nintendo Switch fan.
  8. Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine: The crafting possibilities are endless with the Cricut Explore Air 2! Create custom shirts, decorate tumblers, make seasonal gift tags, jewelry and so much more. Inspire someone you love to polish their maker-skills with this ultimate DIY gift.
  9. Pinkfong Baby Shark Fingerlings: The preschool set will go wild over this Baby Shark Fingerling that responds to sound, touch, and motion, with a light-up fin, blinking eyes, and magical kisses. And yes, of course, it sings the famous “Baby Shark” song along with sea sound effects too.

Meaningful Gifts That Give Back

We can’t think of a better way to approach the holidays and the end of 2016 than in a socially conscious way.  Many of us have a new perspective this holiday season and hope to make our gifting more meaningful than ever.  We have suggestions for ways to touch the hearts of friends and loved ones with charitable gifts that give back and carry lasting impact.

Instead of material gifts that may soon be forgotten – invest in making a difference by supporting the volunteer rescue workers in Syria rushing to the scenes of bombings to pull people out from under the rubble and carry them to safety by donating in a loved one’s name to The White Helmets. Contribute to the International Rescue Committee to help save refugee families in crisis. Give the gift of helping struggling families lift themselves out of hunger and poverty – and send a girl to school through Heifer International.  Help CARE continue to save lives with food and emergency assistance, education and economic opportunity in places that need it most – and your funds will be MATCHED if you donate by December 31st – doubling your gifted impact.

If you’re looking to wrap up a gift invested in making a difference – check out these great options that give back below:


Help light the path out of poverty for adolescent mothers in Chicago by purchasing a handcrafted candle from Bright Endeavors – a paid job training program providing critical guidance to help young moms secure quality employment.

Assist in ensuring a safe pregnancy and safe birth to every mother, everywhere, by making a donation to Every Mother Counts in a loved one’s name – or purchase a gift from their shop.  100% of net proceeds from this lovely Flat Clutch will be donated to Every Mother Counts.

Purchase an adorable ethically produced hand-knit doll crafted by Peruvian artisans from Cuddle + Kind, and ten meals will be provided to food insecure children, through the World Food Program USA.

Give the gift of cozy socks from Bombas knowing that for every pair purchased a pair will be donated to a homeless person in need. Best of all, the donated socks are engineered to meet the specific needs of people who don’t have the luxury of a clean pair of socks every day.

Consider gifting from Mercado Global and helping indigenous Guatemalan women to overcome poverty and become agents of change in their communities. Check out this beautiful Amanecer Pillow that draws inspiration from traditional handwoven techniques that originate from Comalapa, an artisan village in the Central Highlands of Guatemala.
