A Personalized Gift Guide for Unique People

A Personalized Gift Guide for Unique People

I wanted to create a personalized gift guide, with categories to match the unique people in your life.

Let’s face it, we all have those people that are so hard to buy for during the holidays. So why not create gift guide categories based on personal interests of people we know, verses the old fashioned assignments of his or hers. I mean I know a ton of guys that love to cook, so why should kitchen items only go in a hers category, am I right?


Gifts for the Homebody

We all have that friend or family member that works from home, or prefers to stay at home rather than come out to play. There is nothing wrong with wanting to surround yourself with things that you love, it is a form of design called Hygge. I did an entire post on it if you want to learn more about it. That is what this gift list is all about, creating a comfortable home life.

Gifts for a Foodie

This is such a popular section, with all kinds of people, of all ages. I firmly believe that food has been translated into love in our society. Whether you believe that to be good or bad…. the idea is by cooking for someone or pay homage to a past relative by recreating a traditional dish that invokes such a powerful memory of our lives. This list is a culmination of fun culinary items to make that journey fun for the recipient.

Gifts for the Gardener

Gardening is a very therapeutic hobby for both men and women. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the literal fruits of your labor come to fruition the next season. I find the older I get the more I enjoy working in the yard and just piddling around, and I endeavor to create another seasonal cutting garden yard, as I had in my previous home, which I miss terribly.

Gifts for the Master Griller

There has been such a focus on smoking and grilling these days. From online “Egg Head Groups” to the Eggtober festivals. This industry has really become a billon dollar industry so honestly, I would be more surprised if you did not know someone that was into grilling.

Gifts for the Fitness Guru

New Year, New You, everyone always has fitness goals on their list for a New Year‚Äôs resolution; whether they are already a lifer or just a newbie. So anything in the fitness arena is a good bet for holiday gift giving. Especially after the over indulgent holidays. Here are a few of my favs, I just picked up a 4 pk of the Deconovo Microfiber Towels and they are wonderful, they are so soft they would also work for a car shammy too.
