Christmas is the same day everryyyyy year yet it somehow always manages to sneak up on me! Between all of the baking, decorating, and wrapping, something inevitably falls through the cracks (no judgment here). To help avoid panic shopping, I’ve created my favorite last-minute holiday gifts to help keep you on-track this holiday season.
To Keep You Safe
It’s no secret 2020 has been a rough year. It’s important we do our part to keep ourselves, our family, and our loved ones as safe as possible by continuing to wear our masks, sanitize, and stay apart. If you have known someone who is immunocompromised or just likes to play it safe, these are the perfect last-minute gifts.
Whether you agree with it or not, wearing masks is going to be our reality for quite some time. I recommend stocking up on these masks from Athleta! They are by far the best masks I’ve purchased since quarantine. The pleated fabric allows for a variety of face sizes and has adjustable, soft knit earloops for all-day comfort.
This hydrating hand sanitizer keychain from Olika (sold at Anthropologie) is one of my favorite finds! Your friends and family will definitely appreciate this thoughtful gift great for a stocking stuffer. This hand sanitizer easily clips onto your bookbag, keys, or purse making it perfect for on-the-go. It comes in four different colors and is refillable for when you undoubtedly need to restock.
Pepper Spray Keychain: $9.99
This pepper spray keychain is another great stocking stuffer. While it might be intimidating to have pepper spray on your keychain, this keychain has a safeguard to make sure you don’t accidentally spray it when you don’t need to. However, it has a quick release and finger grip for when you do need it in a sticky situation!
Self Defense Keychain: $9.99
This self-defense keychain allows you to add an extra layer of security when you’re on the go. This keychain comes in a pack of five with color variations including black, pink, silver, purple, and blue. Not only can you use this to protect yourself, but it’s also strong enough to break glass if you need to escape from a car or window.
Safe Sound Personal Alarm: $20.99
This emergency alarm can make a loud sound (for up to 50 minutes!) to draw attention to yourself to protect you in an uncomfortable situation. This alarm comes with batteries guaranteed to last at least one year before replacement! It’s the perfect size for on-the-go travel because you can attach it to any bag, bookbag, belt loop, suitcase, keys, or even a dog leash.
Smart Jewelry: $199
Alright, guys, I know this is a little bit of a splurge compared to some of the other items on this list but when I tell you this product is a lifesaver, I’m being completely serious! This bracelet doubles as a safety device. If you press the backside of the charm two times, it instantly sends a text message with your GPS location to five people to let them know you need help.
Small Portable Charger: $34.99
If you’re in an emergency situation, it’s important to make sure your phone is fully charged or you have a backup. I keep my portable charger fully-charged and in my car at all times in case I need it while I’m on the go. This portable charger is the same size as a lipstick tube (!!) and plugs in directly to your phone. No need for a cord or any additional equipment!
To Keep You Feeling Good
Feeling good means something different to everyone so I included a variety of different self-love products in this section! If you’re looking for a fun new hairstyle or want to treat yourself to new clothes, this gift guide has you covered.
Via Waistbag 2.0: $58
This waistbag, or as I like to call it, fanny pack, is great for commuting, travel, or work. It’s the perfect size to hold your essentials and keep them secure when you’re on the go. It has an adjustable strap so you can wear it traditionally across your waist or across your body as a sling.
My merchandise line, Commen, has already grown to include over 15 products! Commen is designed for all shapes, sizes, and body types. With sizes ranging from small to 3X in t-shirts, hoodies, crop tops, and crewnecks, Commen is the perfect choice for you or your bestie this year.
When I cut my hair and added curtain bangs, I admittedly had NO idea how to style my hair until I purchased this one-step hair dryer and volumizer from Revlon. It delivers gorgeous volume and brilliant shine in a single step! Its unique oval brush design helps smooth the hair while the round edges create volume at the root and allows you to place it closer to the scalp without burning yourself.
This little device is a lifesaver for those of you who may live alone or know someone that does! The ZipMeUp is a small device you can attach to any zipper to help you zip up hard to reach zippers on dresses, skirts, or shirts. No more awkward backbends to get your clothes on properly!
If you’ve been following me for a long time, you know how obsessed I am with all Tula products! They have completely changed my skin for the better and left me feeling more confident and satisfied with the appearance of my skin. This gift set is the ultimate skincare set that showers skin AM to PM with good-for-you ingredients and benefits. It’s packed full of best-sellers and brand new products!
This set nourishes and restores the skin, smoothing the look of uneven skin tone, targeting signs of premature aging, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. By purchasing the full kit you save $102! Add my code MIKZAZON for an additional 15% off your order.
Frank Body has been another one of my recent obsessions! Frank Body creates coffee-based skincare to leave you smooth and perky. All of their products are naturally derived, cruelty, SLS, and paraben-free. My favorite products include any of the scrubs and masks.
To Keep You Busy
Sometimes it’s fun to try new things and develop new hobbies! I recently developed new skills and hobbies and I encourage you to find things that excite you and push you to your limits. To keep you busy during downtime, I added my favorite obsession to my 2020 holiday gift guide.
If you know someone who is into finding unique skills and hobbies, look no further! This kit comes with everything you need to make gorgeous stones including a durable, high-quality tumbler, four packs of polishing grits, a sifter, nine types of real gemstones, and a learning guide. I also love how easy it is to use. You put the rocks in the tumbler, add the polishing grit and water, turn on the tumbler, and, voilà, you have polished rocks!
Gratitude Journal: $6.99
This journal is a self-exploration journal designed to focus on being thankful for what we have, the big things in life, as well as the simple joys. Each well designed weekly spread contains an inspirational quote, space to write 3 things you are thankful for each day of the week, and a weekly checkpoint.
To Keep You Active
Taking care of yourself and your mental and physical well being is of the utmost importance! If you’re looking to give something to help with mental and physical well being, these two gifts will help you stay active and recover properly.
My HIIT30 program is a 30-day program designed to help you get your beautiful body moving while promoting a healthy, positive mindset. My HIIT30 program takes the focus off of losing weight and puts the focus on understanding how your body feels and what it needs to perform.
Back and Neck Massager: $55.99
When you’re working hard, you need to recover properly to allow your body to build muscle and perform at its optimal level. This back and neck messenger has been an absolute necessity. This massager comes with three different speeds, ranging from low, medium, and high, and has 8 deep-kneading Shiatsu massage nodes to sooth tired and fatigued muscles.
To Keep You Zen
Sometimes you just need to recharge and recenter! These gifts can help keep you or your loved ones feeling zen in times that are undoubtedly uncertain.
Rechargeable Candle Lighter: $13.59
What holiday gift guide would be complete without at least one mention of a candle? This candle lighter is rechargeable thanks to its battery pack and has a long neck perfect for lighting those stubborn candles that have been burnt once or twice before.
Smart Coffee Warmer: $28.99
Working from home comes with plenty of distractions! Sometimes I make myself a cup of fresh tea or coffee to only end up forgetting about it until it’s ice cold. This smart coffee warmer plugs into the wall and keeps your coffee nice and hot until you’re ready to enjoy it. An added bonus? This coffee warmer can double as a candle warmer if you live or work in a place that doesn’t allow an open flame.
This diffuser gives you total control of your home fragrance, the Pura diffuser conveniently connects with your smartphone through an app that allows you to adjust timing, scents, and intensity at any time, wherever you are. Effortlessly swap your favorite Capri Blue fragrances, create custom schedules, and receive “running low” or “empty” notifications through the Pura app. The diffuser even doubles as a night light, allowing you to customize the color and brightness to suit your needs.
Make your loved ones’ lives a little easier by using this phone holder! Attach it to any hard surface so you can view what’s on your phone. Add it to your car dashboard to avoid constantly looking down to check directions or attach it to your countertop so you can better view recipes while cooking.
Light Therapy Lamp: $37.99
Let’s be honest, it’s 2020 and we all need a little more vitamin D.
