Holiday Gift Ideas for 2017
By Amy Ford
Giving is arguably the best thing about the holiday season, but sometimes, selecting just the right gift for that someone special can prove to be tricky. In this three-part series, you will find gift ideas for the entire family, as well as links to each product, so that you can do your own investigating.
Part I. Gifts for Her
You can never go wrong when showering the special lady in your life with gifts that promote rest and relaxation, especially when those gifts also allow her a little more time to herself. Here are a few items that when cleverly combined, do just that.
Start your luxurious gift package out with a Me Time Bamboo Bath Tray from Urban Outfitters. This mildew-resistant, bamboo bath caddy will no doubt turn bath time into spa time. It features a foldable stand for securing your book or reading device, a specially designed cutout to anchor your wine glass, and a circular cutout ideal for a scented candle (or dish or chocolates!).
Next on the list –the perfect wine glass! Check out www.giftedgrape.com, and their awesome selection of beautiful and unique wine glasses. With everything from seahorses to seashells, fish to flip-flops and pelicans to palm trees, you are sure to find the perfect stem for your sweetie here.
No one likes an empty wine glass no matter how pretty it may be. However, with so many flavor profiles available selecting the perfect wine can often be confusing. Red, white or Rose? Dry or sweet? Peppery or floral? One way to simplify this process is with the help of an online wine club. Companies like the Tasting Room and Winc will select the perfect wines for you based on a few easy to answer questions and ship them directly to your doorstep each month. Their websites are easy to navigate, and they typically feature great introductory offers. If wine is not a favorable option, then try www.plumdeluxe.com. Similar in concept, this company features hand-blended, specially selected herbal teas.
What’s better than warming up with a good book in the winter time? Warming up with a good beach book in the winter time, of course! If you are searching for a recommendation, look no further than Secrets in Summer by Nancy Thayer and The Beach at Painters Cove by Shelley Noble. Both of these fun, easy reads have been recently released, come highly recommended, and are written by two of the most highly regarded writers in the genre.
Last but never least… jewelry! Good things always come in small velvet boxes. The hot trend for 2017 is rose gold, so you might consider something such as a custom coordinate necklace in rose gold like the one found at Eve’s Addiction. Personalize it with your wedding venue or your favorite getaway spot, Herrington Harbour!
