Your holiday shopping just got simpler. This is the best high-low unique gift mix all in one spot. Also, it’s okay to add extra to your cart to reward yourself for being such a smart shopper this holiday season.

Unique Gifts For Teens

My oldest son just became a teenager this November so I also polled my 15 and 17-year-old nieces for their picks. Some of their favorites include graphic tees, oversized sweaters or hoodies, and converse sneakers. Urban Outfitters was a popular place that had almost everything on their lists and is currently offering 25% off everything.

You don’t have to be in your teens to rock a cool pair of converse sneakers. I love my black high-top converse sneakers and wrote this blog post that will give you some converse sneaker outfit ideas.

Customize a cozy shearling-lined croc your favorite kids can wear as slippers, or a simple slip-on they can wear before or after their next big game.

Unique Gifts When You Work From Home

The biggest game changer in my home office setup has been this jumbo ultra slim 27″ monitor. If you love a paper calendar as much as I do, this giant 15″x12″ style has been my go-to for the last 3 years. This designer-inspired H blanket makes a good gift and looks great in a home office. I rotate mine between my sofa and desk chair.

I’m hard to buy for because I’m always shopping, but I always put a few big ticket items on my wish list. Most years it’s a designer handbag. Check out my Designer Handbag Directory if you’re in the market for one this year.

If you’re happy and you know it then your “look” will surely show it…My entire family is obsessed with this iconic smiley symbol. I love my trucker hat and my “teenager” just got this $15 beanie. Big brands we love like Gap and Farm Rio have special smiley collections that are selling fast, especially now since they are both running juicy cyber week sales.
