If you’re like me, you might tend to wait until the last minute to get things done. We don’t have a problem, we just work best under pressure, right? All jokes aside, sometimes life gets a bit crazy and we lose track of time. I’ve been looking at the calendar today thinking about how Christmas is less than one week away and how I haven’t completed my holiday shopping yet. Thankfully, we have services that ship goods super quickly so we can still put smiles on our loved ones’ faces in time for the holiday.
On top of that, we might feel stumped on what to buy for certain people. I’ve compiled a quick list of products that I enjoy that I believe anyone who is interested in cooking, health, fitness, haircare, or basically anyone can appreciate. Check out my list and let me know if you decide to gift any of these! As an Amazon Affiliate, I will receive a small commission from any items you buy through Amazon after clicking my links. Most of these items are available on Amazon Prime so you can get them in just 2 days! Last-minute shoppers win again! Happy holidays!
1. KitchenAid 5-Speed Hand Mixer
My KitchenAid Hand Mixer is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets. KitchenAid is notoriously a fan-favorite for stand mixers, but as I am currently ballin’ on a budget, I make great use out of my handy-dandy hand mixer. Whenever I’m baking, I break this bad boy out and blend my ingredients to perfection. Plus, it’s a very small fraction of the cost of a KitchenAid stand mixer ($29.99 vs. $200+). I highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys spending time in the kitchen! Click here to buy.
2. Canon EOS Rebel Digital SLR Camera Kit
Having a DSLR camera can come in handy in SO many situations. In my case, it gives me the beautiful food photos that I post here on Bri Healthy. In order to increase your following, high quality photos are essential, and this camera is an incredible tool to help achieve that. It’s perfect for a whole lot more than just food photos though. I’ve taken mine all over the world, from New Orleans to France, and I have so many gorgeous pictures to remember these trips by. I’ve had mine for almost 10 years now and it still works perfectly. I highly recommend this camera for anyone who enjoys photography in any capacity, or for basically anyone to have around for those special moments that often sneak up on us! Click here to buy.
3. Cuisinart Smart Stick 2-Speed Hand Blender
When it comes to making soups, I don’t know what I’d do without my Cuisinart immersion blender. This tool allows you to blend recipes without having to cool them and transfer them to a blender, just to reheat them afterward. When making any thick, blended soup, such as butternut squash soup, immersion blenders make the process SO much easier. Plus, it’s fun to make a big whirlpool in a pot! (PSA: playing with your food is okay.) Click here to buy.
4. Nutri Ninja Blender Duo with Auto-iQ
I’ve been using my Nutri Ninja blender for years now and it’s never done me wrong. I love that this updated model has even more options of blending than mine does. There are different buttons for different functions: from smoothies to food purée, and even to dough. I love to use mine to make juices, leaving the fibrous skin in. This blender makes the juice so smooth, you can’t even tell that you’re getting even more healthy dietary fiber than you would with juices that extract the skin. Click here to buy.
5. Herschel Supply Co. Novel Duffle Bag
This duffle bag is so nice, I included it twice. That is, I wrote about it on my list of fitness essentials as well. This is one of the greatest gym bags of all time. They come in a multitude of colors, they’re super spacious, and they have a shoe compartment! They’re trendy and perfect for any fitness-loving gift recipient. Click here to buy.
6. Sashapure Perfectly Defining Curl Cream
This hair cream’s for the one you love with all the beautiful, curly hair! I was fortunate enough to meet two awesome ladies from Sashapure that gave me a box with a bunch of their amazing products in it. I use this curl cream every day right after I get out of the shower. I apply it directly to my wet hair and it leaves my hair in nice, held-together curls. Sashapure’s line is made with all-natural ingredients as well, so they’re Bri Healthy-approved! Click here to buy.
7. Misto Olive Oil Sprayer
Almost every single recipe that requires a stovetop or oven calls for nonstick cooking spray. The problem is that most store-bought nonstick cooking sprays contain emulsifiers, anti-foaming agents, and propellers – which are various chemicals that can even include propane! In order to avoid any additives and just stick to your oil of choice, I can’t recommend Misto enough. I use my Misto every single day. It’s simple to use and it’s exactly that: just nonstick cooking spray! This is perfect for the chef(s) on your list. Click here to buy.
8. Ozeri Digital Kitchen and Food Scale
This device truly changed my life. I never used to weigh my food. As a calorie counter, I used to eyeball all of my foods. I consistently ate sweet potatoes and it turned out that I was clocking them in at about half of the calories they actually were. This meant that I was eating many more calories than I had anticipated, which, in a sense, defeated the purpose of my meal tracking. Since buying this scale, I consistently weigh my meat, potatoes, cheese, and other ingredients, so I know that I’m staying on track. Click here to buy.
9. Saint Linen Stonewashed Dish Towels
Does someone on your list enjoy food photography or following accounts with beautiful food photos? All you need to add a bit of flair to your plating design is a linen or two! Simply fold a linen underneath your plate, bunch it up, or use it as a makeshift tablecloth to enhance your photos. Here’s a great set of two different colors. The Instagrammable possibilities are endless! Click here to buy.
10. Vremi 18-Piece Glass Food Storage Containers
These food storage containers were a total game-changer for me. I used to use plastic food containers, which did the job, but they had some downsides to them. The food often took on a plastic taste (which couldn’t have been too healthy), and whenever I used any tomato-based sauce, the plastic would become permanently stained. These glass storage containers are perfect for any food storage and transport, but they’re especially great for any meal prepper. Click here to buy.
Thanks for checking out my little gift guide! I hope that you were able to find a last-minute gift for someone on your list, or even for yourself. I hope you have an amazing holiday, and remember, it’s not about what you give or receive. It’s about the love we share on these days that means the most.
