Tips for Checking Off Your Holiday List Like a Pro

December 13, 2017

Isn’t there always that one person who lingers on your holiday gift list, keeping you scratching your head guessing as to what exactly they might like as a gift? 

Our $10-and-under stocking stuffers ought to do for almost anyone on your list who you want to show appreciation but don’t want to blow the budget (looking at you, office gift givers!). But here are a few more ideas if you want to up your game just a little more with unique and thoughtful items to make every recipient know you care.

For Distant Relatives You See Just Once a Year

Liberty Bottleworks Reusable Recycled Aluminum Bottles
For aunts, uncles, cousins, those people you call relatives who are actually just friends of the family—we’ve all got them. Here’s a nice way to avoid charged political topics but still help everyone in your circle get on the path to sustainability without saying a word. Also super cool popular are the major city transit map ones—always have a map and a drink of water handy as they travel to a cool place like NYC or Boston.

For the mail carrier, delivery person, doorman, bartender, hairdresser

Fair-Trade Coffee
They keep you in the know, on track, looking good, and on point. That’s why you need to keep them caffeinated.

For your friend’s kids that you don’t actually know how old they are

Recycled Colored Pencils
Encourage the artist in them with this tube of 12 woodless pencils made from recycled newspapers! Works for elementary school scribblings, high school sketchbook stars, and everyone in between. Pair it with an Adventure Bound set of three recycled pocket-sized sketchbooks for a gift for a creative kid with big impact.

For Your Boss Who Really Should Be Buying You a Gift Instead

Inspire Dreams Chico Bag
Because that’s what they should be doing for your career—inspiring your dreams and helping you reach your goals. Bonus points if you fill the bag with a Jam Stand sampler—because we all know you’ve been getting the company out of jams for years.

Sure these ideas may be a bit cheeky, but the holidays are made for fun. See more ideas that do some serious good for people and the planet and in our Holiday Gift Ideas Collections. We’ve got the perfect gift for you to pick!
