Gifts I Appreciate Now

Picture it. December 1988. I am anxiously awaiting Christmas morning to see if Santa did indeed bring the Cabbage Patch doll I desperately wanted. As I grew older, my tastes would change and I would beg for a new pair of sneakers or a cool boombox. Most of these gifts I specifically remember being things I felt I could not live without.

Now, as I approach 40, I really know the meaning of things I can’t live without:

  1. Poo-Pourri: Have you had to run to the bathroom at work after eating tacos the night before? You get there and there is no spray. Panic sets in. I think we have all been in this situation. Enter Poo-Pourri. Spray before you go and it guarantees no after odor.
  2. Good sheets: I’ve purchased all types of sheets, but now instead of worrying about what the sheets look like aesthetically, I don’t mind paying extra for comfort. My favorites can be found here.
  3. Tile Mate: I am notorious for losing my keys, more than ever lately as the holidays are jam packed with events and engagements.

4. Socks: You just can’t have enough socks…or ever find a match.

5. Air fryer cheat sheets: It’s the heating time guide for the air fryer. You can hang it on your fridge for easy access.

6. Car trash can: If you have kids that you chauffeur around, there is bound to be trash. Between snack wrappers, artwork from daycare and McDonald’s toys, there is always something to clean. My three-year-old has no guilt around his car seat clutter.

This holiday season consider giving the gift of practicality. Instead of spending a ton on items that family and friends won’t use, give gifts that will make life for your loved ones easier. Trust me, they will appreciate it.
