Time around the holidays is tight and your gift-giving list is a mile long. Shopping in-store can be time-consuming, never mind hectic, so it might be time to take the easy road and give online gifts straight from your smartphone. The best part? You won’t have brave lines at the mall or the post office! Here are a few of my favorites:
1. A Real Evergreen Gift
From Cotton Candy Mango trees to Miracle Fruits trees, a tree is a wonderful gift that lives on for years and adds green to any living space. A favorite of celebs DJ Khaled and Russell Simmons, PlantoOgram potted trees range from $45.00- $140.00, ship for free and are delivered in a five-foot custom box making this a gift with a big impact.
2. Photos That Last
I love giving photo gifts, and Canvaspop is at the top of my list of brands because of their high-quality printing and beautiful products – from canvas prints to pillows! The item I return to again and again is their magnets. They are high quality, gorgeous and come in a box of 9 for $30. Want some for yourself? They gave me an exclusive code, TRUETRAE, for 50% off at Canvaspop.com!
3. A Fragrance Subscription Box
You know someone who loves fragrances, but you don’t want to choose for him or her, right? SCENTBIRD ($14.95 and up) is a monthly subscription service that allows them to choose from over 500 fragrances each month, including luxury scents like Gucci, Versace and Tom Ford. Each month, they receive a luxury sample size, which is beautiful in its own right and perfect for travel. Use my code, TRUETRAE, for 40% off the first month!
4. Gift Cards
If you’re at a loss on what to get someone, don’t risk it and buy them something you’re not sure about. Instead, give them a gift card so they can buy what they really want! And the good thing about gift cards is that there are so many that are available at a discount – and your recipient will never know. Head over to GiftGardGranny for access to thousands of discounted gift cards from favorite stores, like Target and Kohl’s!
5. One Big Gift
And rather than going into debt buying a pile of gifts for kids, why not try something different? I recently discovered Goalsetter.co, which is a digital savings platform for kids. They get their own FDIC-insured account that links to a parents’ bank account, and you, family members and friends can contribute to a specific goal, like horseback riding lessons or a used car. Goalsetter teaches kids about saving vs. spending and gives them something they really want instead of a pile of things they may never use.
