There is never a wrong time to treat your loved ones, but as the holiday season inches closer, we’re all beginning to search for those perfect gifts to fill them with delight. Shopping in advance truly makes the holidays more relaxing as it keeps you from the last-minute rush. Plus, with all the production and shipping delays this year, it’s beneficial to get started on your gift list before December rolls around.

The best gifts show thought and care, so start considering what your loved ones would enjoy. To offer some inspiration, we’ve compiled some of our favorite ideas below. From lovely accessories to the newest gadgets, you’ll find thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list.

 

The Budding Chef

For that person on your list who loves to cook, here’s something they probably don’t already have. Help them take their passion for cooking to the next level with this fun and easy-to-use hand-crank pasta machine. This particular model, which is made by the Italian company Marcato, comes with attachments to create smooth lasagna, wide fettuccine, and thin tagliolini. Of course, if there is another type of pasta that your loved one would like to make, there are additional attachments available.

 

 

The Eco-Conscious

Being eco-conscious is much easier when you have the right resources and tools at your disposal. We can all strive to be more environmentally friendly and this is a gift that everyone on your list will appreciate. To use this unique solar charger, which was featured on Shark Tank, simply hang the panel in a bright window and charge it for up to 10 hours. You can then use it to power up a cell phone, Airpods, speakers, and more.

 

 

The Worker Bee

The holidays can be a stressful time for those who have endless work to-do lists. We’ve all been there. While working around the clock can be a tough routine to break, taking 10 minutes to write in a gratitude journal each morning will help the recipient channel good energy for the day. This gratitude journal features encouraging quotes and weekly checkpoints to remind the reader of everything they are thankful for. It’s the perfect gift for anyone who needs to inject a bit of positivity into their day.

 

 

The New Parent

There are so many things that new parents need, and Christmas is the perfect time to give them a hand with their shopping list. A stylish and comfortable baby carrier is a joint gift for mom or dad and their little one. Not only will they love how cute this one from Artipoppe looks, but it lets them be hands free so that they can get important tasks done while keeping baby close.

 

 

The Wine Lover

For your friend or partner who swirls their wine before sipping and talks about notes of oakiness and smoke, this gift is perfect. A wine subscription is a way of letting them try different wines each month, specially selected by the experts at Winc. With top-rated vineyards supplying over 100 wines to choose from, this membership-free subscription box is a winner for wine lovers.

 

 

The Outdoorsy Type

Illuminate their holidays with this uniquely designed lantern, which blends both function and form. With a dimmable LED core, it can brighten up the darkness with white light when they’re outside and create a soft amber glow within a mountain cabin at night. It’s lightweight and water resistant, making it perfect for hiking trips. It even has a candle setting that mimics a flickering flame to add hygge to the coldest winter nights.

 

 

The Dog

Don’t forget your four-legged friends this holiday season! These braided rope leashes are handcrafted in New York using soft materials that have been tested for durability. The leash is not only incredibly stylish, but it is also adjustable and can be held from the hand or worn around the waist.
