27 Gifts I Recommend From Personal Experience

As much as I like giving gifts, shopping for them is hard. Figuring out what they want, don’t have, will use, is the right price, etc., is a challenge, to say the least. And during the holidays, we have to do it for a lot of people at the same time. It’s truly overwhelming, but I got you. As an editor and avid shopper myself, I try out a lot of products throughout the year. Being able to make personal recommendations is something I love about my job, and another thing I love about my job is making gift guides. It may seem bizarre, but putting together a big list of gift recommendations brings me so much joy, so here we are.

2020 has been an exceedingly difficult, strange year, and gift-giving is pretty unusual as a result. Many things we’d typically use or want are pretty irrelevant this year, but I came up with 27 things that are quite useful/will be much appreciated this year, and they’re all things that have made me happy over the past year. So let’s start ordering some last-minute gifts, shall we?
