As we enter the last few months of 2022, fall is in the air. The temperatures are dropping, the cozy-sweaters are coming out of the closets, and knee-high-socks are once again making their annual debut. If that wasn’t a dead giveaway that fall is here, the return of the pumpkin spice everything is plenty of an indicator in and of itself. As we all know, though, it’s only a matter of time before fall swiftly rides on the gusting winds into winter. For many, this also means the coming of the holiday season, and all of the celebrations that go with.
This year, though, many families who celebrate December holidays with a gift-giving component, are opting for smaller celebrations, minimalistic presents, and practical gifts where possible. This is largely due to the current state of the economy, as well as how it coincided with the rise of minimalism as a societal philosophy for many younger consumers. As such, the following is a list of practical items that anyone can benefit from adding to their holiday wish list this coming season.
1. A Massage Muscle Gun
Many people are becoming fitness-friendly and fitness-focused nowadays. This is for a variety of reasons, but the fitness, health, and exercise industries are slowly becoming much more inclusive, empathetic, and understanding. This has allowed a much larger portion of the population to get involved in exercise, health, and nutrition, and the pursuit of an overall healthier lifestyle.
With that in mind, a massage muscle gun can be the perfect gift for anyone who is involved in fitness at really any level. Massage muscle guns are great at working out the lactic acid in sore and fatigued muscles, and it can even help detangle knots layered beneath the skin.
If you’re looking for ways to improve your workout and exercise routine, a massage muscle gun could be the perfect addition for you.
2. A Standing Desk
There’s almost nothing more practical than work. As such, the most practical gifts one could ask for are going to be work-related. In today’s day and age, much of the professional workforce is actually working from home or working remotely. While this is the case for many, some home offices could use a little bit of improving when it comes to equipment.
A standing desk is an extremely popular option among working professionals right now, as it allows people to stand while they work when they feel like it. This can be beneficial to both blood flow and brain activity, and allow for the individual to avoid certain physical drawbacks that stem from sitting in a desk-chair all day long. If you’re working from home on a regular basis, a standing desk could be the game-changing piece of equipment you need. You may as well throw it on your holiday wish list and see what comes your way.
3. Skill Based Interest Items
It is supposed to be a wish-list after all, so there’s no harm in putting a few things that are hobby or interest-based on your list. If you’re trying to keep your wish-list practical, though, you can specifically add items that will add to your skill-based interests and hobbies.
For example, a golfer might ask for a special set of golf balls that they can use when they go to the course. While golfing isn’t necessarily practical, it is a skill-based interest that is both mentally and somewhat physically challenging.
4. A Humidifier or Other Household Appliance
Household appliances, like a humidifier can also be an excellent, and very practical, gift to put on your wishlist. Humidifiers come in all different shapes and sizes, but their main function is to keep the atmosphere moist, cool, and fresh. Some top of the line humidifiers even come with a cool-mist feature that is great for the dry-air of winter.
Features don’t stop there, though, a high-quality humidifier may also be designed with an essential oils tray. Users can add their favorite blends of essential oils into this tray, and it will be imbued with the cool-mist that the humidifier sprays. A humidifier is a great gift for anyone who is looking to keep their bedroom nice and fresh throughout the winter.
5. New Clothes
Everyone needs new clothes from time to time, and whether you’re buying for your child or your partner, there are plenty of clothes to choose from. You could add to someone’s collection of athletic gear, professional wear, or purchase them a new comfy-cozy sweater.
If you’re buying for your partner, you could also opt to purchase more intimate items like male or female lingerie.
A few Final Suggestions
