Everyone's got those hard-to-shop-for people on their lists. It could be your spouse, your in-laws or anyone who's over the age of 5.
If you don't want to be known as the one who gives unwanted gifts, today is your lucky day. Here's Divvy's list of five local businesses offering tried and true gifts your friends and family are sure to love.
Sunday Citizen: Something to keep them cozy all winter long
In recent years, the Danish lifestyle of hygge (pronounced "hue-gah") has exploded in popularity. The concept centers around creating a feeling of comfort and coziness, which is something anyone can appreciate in the cold winter months. This might include donning some fuzzy slippers, sipping on something hot or wrapping up in a soft blanket by the fire, to name a few ideas.
Sunday Citizen is your one-stop-shop for all things hygge. Grab a snug weighted blanket, a light throw blanket, a sleep mask, a meditation pillow and so much more. And while you're shopping for the people on your list, you'll probably want to get something for yourself. (After all, you deserve to enjoy that cozy feeling, too.)
Pura: Fragrances to match their mood and style
One of the most memorable gifts you could give this holiday season is a smart fragrance diffuser from Pura. Smells trigger some of your most powerful and emotional memories, according to Live Science. So, finding a scent your friends and family will love is a surefire way to leave a good, long-lasting impression!
And since Pura uses only the best and safest ingredients, you can rest assured that their fragrances pose no risks to children or pets. You can choose from a variety of scents — from citrus to floral and fresh to fruity — and more. They even offer a quiz to help you determine which fragrance would be the best fit for your home.
Kizik: Shoes that won't slow them down
This is the ultimate gift for anyone who is always on-the-go and likes to get out the door quickly: hands-free shoes from Kizik. Imagine being able to slip into your shoes without any tying, pulling, heel crushing or pinched fingers. But these are no ordinary slip-on shoes. Kizik shoes feature a patented technology that creates a spring-back heel. All you have to do is crush the heel down, slip your foot in and voila — a secure fit that stays on (and comfortable) all day long. Reviewers are calling it the "future of footwear." These are also a great option for parents and older family members who have trouble bending over.
Kizik is so certain you'll like them that they offer a 30-day money back guarantee if you aren't completely satisfied.
Cozy Earth: The softest sheets and pajamas
Landing on Oprah Winfrey's Favorite Things list is a monumental feat — and this Utah company has done it four years in a row. Oprah describes Cozy Earth's bed sheets and pajamas as "the softest ever," which makes them a pretty safe bet to put under the Christmas tree.
With temperature-regulating and moisture-wicking fabric, these sheets and jammies are designed to keep you cool and comfortable all year long. (At the very least, you could buy your loved ones a pair of Cozy Earth's high-quality socks.)
Bespoke Post: A box of treasures
Sometimes the best gifts are the ones that include an element of surprise. When you're looking for the perfect gift for anyone who's hard to shop for, get them a subscription to Bespoke Post. Every month they release themed boxes filled with quality goods (shaving sets, shoe shine kits, home bar essentials, etc.).
Each product is carefully selected and reviewed so you know you're only getting the highest quality items. And if you prefer to purchase items individually, they have a wide variety listed in their online shop.
