Sleigh the Holiday.
Guys… Christmas is officially only TWELVE days away. Cue the “Twelve Days of Christmas” song and also probably a little bit of panic about finishing up your holiday shopping. Typically I pride myself in being an early shopper – it’s my thing to do all of my shopping online and have everything done before Thanksgiving but this year that didn’t quite happen. Enter Bed Bath & Beyond.
Instead of spending time navigating dozens of different stores, I turned to Bed Bath & Beyond to help me #SleighTheHoliday this year – there’s seriously something for everyone! From your parents to your sibling that’s still in college to even your secret santa, Bed Bath & Beyond has about a million different gift ideas and they’ve even made it super easy with a bunch of different curated gifting categories on their website (you can browse by recipient type or price!).
Inspired by how easy Bed Bath & Beyond has made it to find amazing, unexpected gifts, I wanted to share a few recommendations of my own that you can still pick up on BedBathandBeyond.com or in-store:
For that friend who hits snooze every morning: Up their morning coffee game with a Chemex Pour Over coffee maker, a set of coffee filters and coffee beans from your favorite roastery (Ritual Coffee is a San Francisco local and my absolute favorite!). Or make ’em their own personal barista with just the touch of a button with a Nespresso machine and milk frother, and don’t forget a set of espresso cups too!
For helping anyone get a head start on their New Year’s Resolutions: I’ve found that wearing a fitness tracker is the best reminder to stay active – a FitBit is a crowd pleaser for anyone on your list, from your parents to your BFF and I love how sleek their new FitBit Flex is. CamelBak water bottles are my absolute favorite for hitting the gym (they wont’t leak in your bag and keep your water nice and cold) and also make for a great stocking stuffer!
For that person who definitely thinks of their pet as their child: Can you tell that I self-identify as this person? ;) I discovered the Petzi Treat Cam from Bed Bath & Beyond’s curated category shops of gift ideas for pets and couldn’t help but pick one up for myself… I mean Callie. It’s super easy to set up and allows you to check in on your pet while you’re not home and even talk to them through the camera and shoot out treats for them to snack on. Best. Idea. Ever. Their pup would also look adorable in a new pair of holiday pajamas to help ’em capture the perfect Christmas morning Instagram shot.
For someone who needs a little boost to make it through winter: Nothing says cozy quite like a hot cocoa kit! This bright tea kettle from Kate Spade New York is pretty enough to leave out on the counter and these “Joy” mugs are the perfect little reminder to find the joy in every day (they’re also nice and roomy so you can pile on the whipped cream and marshmallows!)
For the new homeowner: Celebrate the exciting milestone of the first holiday season in their new home by gifting them all they need for a little cooking baking extravaganza. Gather a few friends and go in on a KitchenAid mixer together for them (they just recently launched a Mini version of their classic stand mixer, perfect for smaller spaces!) and pair with a set of cookie cutters and an apron so they’re all set for a day of holiday baking.
For your nieces & nephews (or for the kids at heart): In my mind, you win Christmas with kids when you give them the gift they open immediately and scurry away to go play with. F0r the younger kiddos, a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe is a classic that’s bound to bring back some nostalgia from everyone in the room and will definitely make it into the family photo album. And for the teens? Anything robotic. Always. A drone or the Sphero BB-8 will occupy them for hours (and everyone in the family will want a turn to drive!)
And for the last minute gifts you inevitably end up needing, no matter how prepared you think you are? There’s no better store than Bed Bath & Beyond to pop into (and I feel like they’re literally everywhere – even my tiny hometown has a BB&B!) and their curated gifting categories online have some seriously good ideas to help you out.
What are some of your favorite gift ideas to #sleightheholiday this year? Anyone else feel like they can spend HOURS wandering around a Bed Bath & Beyond store? SO many goodies!
