Can you believe that Christmas is right around the corner? I’m not ready! I have so much on my to-do list still and I know I’m not alone. Whether you have all your shopping to do still or you have some hard-to-shop-for people you are still trying to find the perfect gift for, I wanted to share some ideas for all the adults on your list. (Check out my kid’s gift guide if you still have kiddos on your shopping list to buy for!)

For the person who loves to relax at home after a busy day

There’s nothing like slipping off your shoes and putting your feet into a pair of nice, warm slippers after a long day of work or running errands. I’m in love with these “Papa Bear” slippers from Dearfoams! They even make “Mama Bear” and “Lil Bear” ones so the whole family can have a pair of the coordinating slippers. Best of all though, from now through December 25th, for each pair of slippers purchased on the brand site, Dearfoams will donate a pair of slippers – up to 50,000 – to RMHC of Central Ohio. There’s nothing like gifting and giving back to a great cause!

For Grandma & Grandpa 

Grandma and Grandpa will love seeing photos of their loved ones displayed on a digital frame like PhotoSpring. I have had this frame for over a year and am in love with it! PhotoSpring is great because it allows families and friends to upload and share photos from any location to any digital frame in seconds. This high-resolution digital frame makes photo and video display and sharing easy with automatic selection & optimization of high-res photos and video slideshows, shared images with family and friends through mobile apps and a portable touchscreen interface to browse and interact with images.

For the health-conscious

Living healthy is about more than just the food that we put in our mouths and those who are health-conscious realize this. The Eve Room smart home accessory helps monitor indoor conditions like air quality, temperature and humidity. Conditions can be seen at a glance and it can be connected with other smart home devices making indoor climate regulation a breeze. For example, they can have an air purifier turn on automatically when air quality deteriorates or have a humidifier switch on before moisture levels drop too low.

For the adventurer in your life

Know someone who always seems to be on an adventure somewhere in the great outdoors? Give them a gift that they can use on their next trip and know they will think about you everytime they use it, no matter where in the world they are! The Sneaky Snuggler Blanket by Montem Outdoor Gear is a great choice. a temperature rating of 40°+, this quilt will keep your loved one warm whether they are camping, hiking, or taking in an outdoor concert. As a bonus, it’s water and puncture resistant and folds out to a comfortable 54″ by 80″ making it perfect for one and cozy for two.

For the tech-obsessed

A virtual reality headset isn’t something anyone really needs but, trust me, it’s something that everyone on your list would be so excited to get! VR headsets allow you to step into another world and explore new things. Our whole family loves the Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream VR headset. It is the world’s first standalone VR headset that sets a new bar for hassle-free VR experiences because it doesn’t require PCs, phones, cables, or external sensors. Equipped with WorldSense™ technology, users can duck, dodge, lean, and move in ways enhance the virtual reality experience. The Mirage Solo also contains a powerful Qualcomm processor, a high resolution low-latency display, and a built-in battery. All of this is wrapped in an ergonomic design that makes the Mirage Solo comfortable and easy to use.

For everyone else

In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a candle and it will mean even more to the receiver knowing that your purchase of a Bright Endeavors candle supports women as they gain important job skills needed to secure quality employment and begin to lift their families out of poverty. Bright Endeavors is a social enterprise in Chicago that empowers young single mothers through its job training program. Each of the premium soy wax candles are handmade by young mothers (ages 16-24) in the program and 100 percent of the proceeds go back to these women. The candles are available in five sizes ($7.99 to $27.99), and this year’s holiday collection features several scents, including Whitebark Pine (scent of earthy, cool pine boughs blended with a touch of sea salt and evergreen), Almond Berry Galette (blend of roasted nutmeg and almond with notes of wild berry and sweet cream), Holiday Citrus (warm, spicy aromas of cinnamon and clove harmonized with gentle blood orange), and Winter Lodge (a woody, smoky scent with notes of anise, nutmeg, tangerine, and cinnamon).
