5 Great Christmas Gift Ideas for 2021

Hits: 26

With the news that shipping times are going to be much longer than usual this year, I had thought it would be prudent to get started on my Christmas shopping. However, I ran into a small snag shopping for some of my loved ones. 


See, there are a lot of people in my life that are so hard to shop for. I could just get gift cards and call it a Christmas well shopped for but those always feel so impersonal! A great Christmas gift isn’t about the price tag; it’s about the thought and care you put into choosing something just right!


If you have someone in your life that you’ve been struggling to shop for, I have some good news for you! Here are 5 great ideas for Christmas gifts that even the pickiest of people will be thrilled to open on Christmas morning!

For the Shutterbug in Your Life

There is a huge push to move away from all of our smart devices right now and I am all for it. The biggest reason I hear people give for not wanting to turn in their iPhone is that they would miss the great built-in camera. 


In steps the Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant Camera!! This camera is great for those who want to take family portraits but also has a selfie mode for when you find that perfect lighting.

For the True Crime Enthusiast

For those who grew up loving Dateline and 2020, here’s a way for them to jump in and try their own hand at solving a mystery! The best part is it is from the comfort of their own couch with a monthly membership to Hunt a Killer! 


This is a subscription box that contains everything needed to solve a fictional case. This can be played on their own or with a group, so you may even get the chance to play your own great gift!


For those outside of the USA, this might not be available without using a service like MyUS. I have used it in my travels — MyUS is legit, safe, and has reasonable rates for shipping outside of the USA. 

For the Coffee Addict

We all know someone who is just glued to their coffee pot or always has a Starbucks in hand. What else could a java junkie ask for with this Wacaco Minispresso Portable Espresso Machine by their side?


This portable espresso machine has a built-in mug and doesn’t require power or batteries! This is truly portable, from an airport to the top of a mountain! Just be sure to remind them to drink some water and get some sleep too, okay?

For the Outdoorsy Person

This L.L. Bean Waterproof Outdoor Blanket is truly to die for. The fleece is so soft and cozy and is perfect for sitting around the campfire after a long day of hiking and fishing. 


L.L. Bean is a company known for its quality products, so you can rest assured that this is a gift that your outdoorsy friend will wrap themselves in for many warm years!

For Anyone and Everyone!

If you still haven’t found a great gift yet, then give the gift of beverages that stay perfectly hot or cold for hours on end! This Yeti 20oz Tumbler comes in oodles of colors and is incredibly durable. 


Whether it’s keeping a cup of coffee nice and hot or crisp water ice-cold, this is a gift that gives just a little moment of joy with every sip!
