It’s hard to believe we’re already in November. It feels like it was just summer, we blinked and BOOM! The leaves are falling, we find pumpkins outside grocery stores, and we’re already craving the Thanksgiving dinner spread. Before you know it, the holidays will be here! Let’s get a jump start on our gifts together.

For the men in your life. For the women you want to spoil. For the kiddos looking for the next big thing. For the teens who will likely roll their eyes no matter what. For the grandparents who deserve the world. We have some suggestions for you!

The chef.

Kitchen gadgets have been ALL the rage this year. How many ways can you cook chicken? Well, you could use an instant pot, crockpot, oven, pan, grill, and more! Challenge your beloved chef to step out of their comfort zone and try a new method. Both the crockpot and the instant pot have recipes that specifically highlight their cooking abilities.

If you’re looking for something a little smaller scale, we’ve got options for you. From a rapid egg cooker to a cup designed specifically for eating Oreos, you can show your love while giving them something they might never have thought of.

The artist.

Looking to go ALL IN for the artsiest person you know? We’ve got one word for you, iPad. While these are on the pricier side, apps like Procreate will allow your creative friend a quick at-home outlet for those masterful ideas.

No less exciting but a little cheaper, grab an adult coloring book and some highly-rated colored pencils to give your artists a channel where they can express themselves within the lines! If you can’t decide between the multiple coloring book options, no need to fear. A blank canvas and some paint is sure to be a welcome challenge to any artist.

The traveler.

We hope all the travelers are hanging in there during these trying times of travel restrictions. Vacations and road trips have been cancelled, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop dreaming of our next adventure. Grab one of these 13 interesting travel books that’ll leave your explorer feeling excited to plan their next outing.

Another brilliant idea is luggage from Away. We kid you not when we say we’ve seen these famous suitcases everywhere! There must be something to their sleek design and 360-degree wheels that simply draw people to them.

CNET compiled a go-to list of the best noise-canceling headphones of 2020. So, if your traveling friend is only a commuter recently, at least they can travel to work and from without any distractions. Throw in a subscription to Audible to really “wow” them!

The coffee connoisseur.

Oh, there’s something irreplaceable about getting a handmade mug or even a mug from the store that you picked out with a special someone in mind. Every time they fill it with their favorite breakfast blend, they will think of you and the story behind it!

Since subscription boxes exist for anything and everything your heart could desire – meal prep, hot sauce, exercise clothes, and more. Why not buy one for your coffee lover? Atlas Coffee Club delivers coffee from around the world with a unique postcard each month! Some may say this is the gift that keeps on giving.

Are you ready to be blown away? We’ve found a mug that will keep your coffee at a specific temperature all day. Not impressed yet? What if we told you that the drinker controls the temperature from their smartphone? YEAH, WE SAID IT. Your coffee lover is probably so tired of getting to the bottom of a cup that is ice cold. Now, you can save the day with Ember’s mugs and travel mugs!

Looking for something a little closer to home? Grab a local coffee shop gift card for them. Shopping local and getting an amazing holiday gift, WIN-WIN!

The heavy lifter.

This is the perfect time to shout out to our gym buddies we haven’t seen in a while. Working out poses added challenges during this unusual time, but we’re here to encourage our friends and family to keep striving to be healthy! This Under Armor face mask will give runners the airflow they need to keep the perfect pace. Everyone wants to look good while they’re sweating, so a new pair of shorts or shoes can keep your yogi feeling centered.

No matter who you’re shopping for, remember to stay safe this holiday season!
