Happy December, y’all! Every year here on Z&S in the days leading up to Christmukkah, we like to provide a little holiday inspiration by bringing you our favorite gift ideas. From the couch potato to the feminist grandma, we’ve scoured the internet to find something for everyone on your list. So without further ado, here are my picks. Check back on Thursday for Zelda’s!
For the weekend couch dweller who still wants to look cute AF
For the one whose jewelry game is on point but whose phone is always dead
Qbracelet iPhone Charger: Everyone’s got a portable charger in their bag these days (seriously, phone, I JUST CHARGED YOU), but why shouldn’t that charger be a cute bracelet, too?
To liven up your grandma’s bridge game
Wildfang Woman Cards: Why play with boring old playing cards when you could play games with cards emblazoned with the visages of powerful women past and present?
For your relative who’s really into family history
23andMe Ancestry + Health Kit: Your genes can apparently tell you all sorts of crazy stuff, and all you have to do is spit into a tube.
For everyone with a nose and a soul
For your friend with terrible MTA luck
The “OG” NYC Train Sign: This custom-built electronic sign is hooked up to the actual MTA system, so you can see when your next train is arriving. Plus it’s a hip decoration.
For the one whose wedding dress code is “soft goth”
Coffin Portable Charger: If the QDesigns bracelet isn’t your cup of tea and you’d prefer something a bit more macabre, check this portable battery.
For the one who doesn’t drink coffee
Party Crackers with Tea: From my other favorite Canadian company, David’s Tea, these party crackers are a fun holiday activity and a gift!
For those who, like me, can’t walk in real heels
TOMS Desert Wedges: I love boots, and I like being taller. These shoes allow me to embrace my love for both without falling down.
When you don’t know what to get as a stocking stuffer
A roll of quarters: Listen, a roll of quarters is literally the perfect stocking stuffer for any New Yorker. We all have to do laundry and going to the bank is a pain. Don’t overthink this one. Your friends will thank you.
Happy gifting! And stay tuned for Zelda’s picks later this week!
