8 holiday gifts for your partner that they'll ~actually~ like
It’s the holiday season, and if you haven’t already, then you’re probably scrambling to find a gift for your partner. It can be tricky to find a gift for the people you love the most, and while we’ve already covered the best stocking stuffers, TSA-approved gifts you can fly to your home town with, and white elephant gifts, finding a great gift for your significant other can be a whole other task. But not to worry! We’ve rounded up nine products we’re sure your partner will love, from AirPods and cozy slippers to CBD balms and touchscreen gloves—happy shopping!
1Apple AirPods 2 with Charging Case
The new and improved AirPods will make the perfect present for anyone who listens to music, podcasts, voice notes, or meditation apps, or watches videos on their smartphone—basically this is the perfect gift for anyone. The updated AirPods are voice-activated and have better audio and voice, a longer battery life, and an improved grip that may be important to people who like to work out.
2Nertpow Fleece-Lined Touchscreen Gloves
We love the winter, but we don’t necessarily love having to take off our gloves to check something on our smartphones and expose our fingers to the frigid winds. These unisex gloves solve that problem thanks to their touchscreen fabric that allows people to keep happily scrolling through their phones without having to sacrifice warmth—plus, it has anti-slip silicone on the palms to prevent phones from slipping out of your hands. This is perfect for millennial survival.
3 Starbucks Gift Card
Almost everyone loves coffee, and if they don’t drink coffee then odds are they probably drink tea or eat croissants. These Starbucks gift cards come in $25, $50, and $100 price points, so they can be the perfect addition to an existing gift or can be the whole thing. Hot drinks are something your partner is already spending money on, so this could be a thoughtful way to say “Igotchuboo.”
4UGG Scuffette II Slipper
Everyone loves to be cozy, and this is especially true in the winter. These slippers are lined with soft shearling for optimal coziness, and they come in seven colors: black/grey, chestnut, espresso, fawn brown, light grey, true navy (pictured here), and bougainvillea.
5Lord Jones Heavy Duty Chill Balm
This CBD balm may very possibly be the best gift your partner never knew they wanted. Packed with 200mg of broad spectrum CBD, it can be applied to pulse points to decrease anxiety and help alleviate stress, and it can also be applied to areas experiencing pain to help soothe it. It’s small enough to fit inside a regular jeans pocket, so your partner can take it with them everywhere they go.
6Nintendo Switch Lite
Calling all gamers! The new Nintendo Switch Lite is a handheld portable option that allows you to play your Nintendo Switch games wherever you go, plus, if you buy one for yourself then you can sync the devices and challenge each other to multi-player games like Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. Think Game Boy, but elevated and much cooler.
7Miroco Light Therapy Lamp
Look, we know that a lamp may not exactly be your idea of a *great* gift, but hear us out. Seasonal depression affects an estimated 10 million Americans each year, and it’s believed that it has to do with the lack of sunlight. This lamp mimics natural sunlight and has three different brightness levels (40%, 60%, and 100%) to switch between depending on the mood and time of day. Hey, it may make your partner feel happier, and if happiness isn’t the best gift of all, we don’t know what is.
8Purist Mover Vacuum Water Bottle
Made of stainless steel, this chic water bottle will keep 18 oz. of liquid hot for twelve hours and has a leak-proof design, so your partner won’t need to worry about their coffee being cold or all over their bag by the time they get to work. It comes in black, white, and this deep green color.
