With the vacation season in full swing, many people are heading to their local department store, or favourite website, to tick off their vacation shopping list. While some gifts are fun for the instant gratification they provide, it is great to give items that can be enjoyed for months, and years to come.
If you want to impress this year, here are eight gift ideas your loved ones can enjoy all year round.
Do you have a friend who all the time complains about the internet in their house? Tired of playing tech support for your family? Check out the eero Home WiFi System. Eero replaces your router with a range of smooth looking devices that ensure every room has fast and reliable WiFi. The eero system is simple to set up and will keep your household connected all year round. Plus, it is an excellent gift to ensure all those shiny new gadgets – from game consoles to smartphones to Apple TV – work seamlessly throughout the home. You may want to take the system for yourself, while you are at it.
Reasons to say cheers:
For anyone who loves unique kitchen items or barware, North Drinkware glasses are an excellent gift. Their nature-themed tumblers and pints are hand-blown in the US, and the base of every glass has the iconic US mountain trail. The glasses are made with care, each taking 30 steps and two days to manufacture. It’s nearly like drinking from a work of art.
The popular 70s point-shoot-and-print camera trend is back. But rather than bringing camera bricks with them, companies like Fujifilm have reimagined the original Polaroid. Check out the Instax Mini 70. It’s lightweight and comes in a wide range of colours to suit any personality. It’s a fun gift for people of all ages who want to capture real-time moments, all year round.
Charging on the go:
For a friend who has trouble charging her phone, a portable battery pack is an excellent stock charger. The Anker 20000 is an excellent portable charger. It’s barely larger than a smartphone but can charge an iPhone 7 approximately seven times. It has two USB plugs so you can charge multiple devices directly, and it can easily be slipped into a pocket or bag for on-the-go charging. This is really the gift that keeps on giving.
Improved little black book:
Whether used for shopping lists, sketchbooks, journals or diaries, it is nice to have a pretty notebook to carry around. Rifle Paper Company manufactures magnificently designed paper goods, amongst them, compact notebooks. The Birch Notebook Set comes with two 64-page rich color books. Each 6-by-8 notebook features metallic gold foil accents and flat binding for simple writing or sketching.
Stress-free weekday dinner:
Practicality meets fun with Blue Apron. Blue Apron is a meal plan delivery service that will save you time and answer the dreaded nighttime question, “What’s for dinner?” The $60 gift card includes a week’s meal plan for two. Fresh, pre-portioned ingredients will be delivered to the recipient’s door and food will be ready in under an hour – perfect for work or a school night. Blue Apron is also an excellent gift for somebody learning to cook as each recipe comes with easy step-by-step instructions.
A little bit of luxury:
For a gift that will welcome you with open arms, consider a parachute bathrobe. Spun from 100% Turkish cotton, the Parachute bathrobe gives you the ultimate spa-like experience in your own home. The robes are plush and absorbent, and are the perfect little luxury after a long day.
Peace of mind:
It’s hard to put a price label on feeling safe and comfy at home. Why not give those priceless feelings as a gift this vacation season? Ring Spotlight Cam has got you covered. This is a wireless HD security camera that lets you see, hear, and talk to anyone on your property from your smartphone or computer. It makes welcoming guests, ushers, or not-so-interesting individuals quick and simple. Gift with the eero WiFi System to make sure every corner of your home is connected and secure.
