Hey Gift Givers!
Do you struggle with giving gifts so much that you end up shopping at the last minute? You wanna give your friend the best gift ever, but you just can’t decide what really speaks to them? Well keep scrolling through my holiday gift guide to find the quick and perfect quick gifts for your friends and loved ones this holiday season!
For the friends who LOVE Coffee and Tea
We all have friends who are just a tad bit of coffee snobs. One of my favorite roasters in Atlanta is Ébrik, and they came out with their own line of roasts available both online and in-store from one of their two shops in Decatur and Downtown Atlanta.
Noticing your friend seeming sluggish in the morning? Help them stay energized into the new year by purchasing a Radio Roasters Coffee Subscription for them. Based in Decatur, Georgia, Radio Roasters has been pursuing the art of great coffee. These subscriptions can be shipped directly to your friends door! You can choose amongst a monthly, bi-monthly, weekly, or bi-weekly basis which include Radio Roaster’s standard option of 10 bags per month.
For your friends who just can’t get enough of their Chai Tea Lattes. For starters, it’s just called chai unless you put a shot of espresso in it then it’s a “dirty chai” latte. LOL. The Chai Box is a local Atlanta chai company that creates different blends of authentic Indian chai and concentrates! What other way to show your bestie you love them than with one of the Chai Box’s gift sets?
For the friends who LOVE Jewelry
I love to add unique tweaks to my outfits, especially in my jewelry! Whether its a street stand or a local business, I love to checkout their goodies! These two local Atlanta small business’ offer super unique handmade jewelry!

We all have that one friend who is CONSISTENT with their diet and gym schedule. That being said, what other way to treat your friend that with a supply of protein powder! Orgain offers a variety of delicious, 100% plant-based protein powders for you to choose from. Use my code: AMBASSADOR7092 to receive 30% off any order with Orgain!

Fitness Gear! I love a good pair of yoga pants, especially with pockets. I invest in quality leggings, but sometimes gym clothes can be overpriced. From yoga pants to barre socks, I have found some great attire and fitness supplies on Amazon that I repeatedly order! Check out my Amazon favorites:
Optimum Nutrition Pre Workout
For the friends who LOVE Self Care Remedies
I take self care VERY seriously, from Sunday night face masks to sporadic candle lit journal entries. When it comes to self care, everyone has their own way of taking a step back and checking in with themselves. Here are a handful of self care items your friends will enjoy!
You can NEVER go wrong with a good scented candle. I love buying White Barn candles in bulk from Bath and Body Works, particularly their essential oil infused candles like Rose Water & Ivy. It’s so aromatic and soothing, and its also available throughout the year so you don’t have to wait once a year to buy it in bulk (just when there’s a sale).
I recently got into advice books, and found this gem is JUST for my twenty-something friends. From work, love, to just life, this book really highlights the importance of enjoying our twenties but also getting serious about our careers and relationships before entering our thirties! This book DOES NOT tell you how much money you should have saved in your twenties, or what type of job you should have, but multiple perspectives from other twenty-somethings who were having trouble with their work, love, and personal lives and how they overcame their challenges.
I LOVE a good face mask! I have pretty normal skin, so when I apply a mask its usually a exfoliating, skin brightening, or rejuvenating sugar scrub or towelette. Here are my two favorite face mask products that I am SURE your friends will love:
Purlisse Face Masks
Skinfood Black Sugar Honey Face Mask
Give the gift of good hair! When it comes to my hair, I have a naturally curly/wavy texture (minus the fact that I have dyed my hair). So when it comes to hair care, I TRUST Briogeo products because they fight frizz, repair my damaged hair, and support my curls WITHOUT all of the sulfates. One of my favorite products is their deep conditioner which is currently on sale in a gift set online and at Sephora for only $27! The mask alone retails for $36, but this set includes the full size deep conditioner as well as fun-size shampoo, leave-in conditioner, and heat protectant creme! A deal this good, you might just end up buying it for yourself too (I don’t blame you).
Last, but not least, for the friends who LOVE TO EAT!
Of course, I had to save the best for last! For the friends who just loveeee to eat!
Is your friend big on experimenting recipes? Then an annual subscription for a popular cooking magazine, such as New York Times Cooking is perfect! For $40, your loved one can enhance their culinary expertise with some of NYT Cooking’s most delicious recipes like this Ombré Apple Pie! This subscription gives UNLIMITED ACCESS to the NYT Cooking archives, practical “how-to” cooking guides, and, a personal recipe box to save all of their precious recipes!
Give the gift of Gusto with a gift card! Did you know that when you buy a $20 gift card at Gusto, you also receive a free shirt? So for your friends who are addicted to a good gusto bowl (me af), a Gusto Tee and a $20 gift card will fill their tummy’s desire.
