holiday 2020


If you’re like me and haven’t finished your holiday shopping (or haven’t started) this gift guide is for you. Even for the few gifts I did order with PLENTY of time, they arrived late or still haven’t shown up so I’m resorting to gifts that I don’t need to worry about making it through the mail. Whether it’s digital or curbside pick-up, here are some last minute gift ideas you don’t have to ship.

I admittedly have not tried Winc but I know a lot of people who have and absolutely love it. It’s a California-based winery offering an online membership experience curating hundreds of wines including organic and sustainable options.

I think literally everyone and anyone could use a Headspace membership this year. I got my entire family a membership last year for Christmas and it was a huge hit. Great for meditation, mindfulness and dealing with stress and anxiety.

Owning the Interview

Two people on the internet I really love and admire, Mary Orton and Rich Scudellari recently launched an online course, Owning the Interview. It includes specific tools and tips for nailing the interview at every stage of your career. A great gift for a new or soon-to-be grad.

Magazine Subscription

I LOVE giving a magazine subscription, not only are you supporting important media but it’s a great gift for someone that loves to read. A few of my favorites are digital subscriptions to the New Yorker, the Atlantic, and the New York Times. You can also get subscriptions to NY Times Cooking and Games.

Curbside Pick Up

Curbside Pick Up

After Craig’s birthday gift didn’t show up I had to VERY last minute come up with something else and I randomly decided to search for a wireless speaker. I’ve always wanted to get him a Marshall speaker (it’s amazing BTW) and I found it at a nearby Best Buy. Their curbside pick-up is SO easy. I ended up also getting a drone and this Hypervolt massager.

Shop Local

Shop Local

There really is no better time to shop local and support the small businesses in your community. I know there are SO many local shops that will gladly help you find the perfect gift and offer curbside pick-up. Local cafes and restaurants are also in need of support so purchasing gift cards and any merchandise they sell goes a long way in helping them keep their doors open.
