Christmas is right around the corner, and for many that means time to shop for holiday gifts. There are several gift options to cater each person. I get excited thinking about what gifts to buy family and friends. If you are wondering what to buy, here is a list of items that would make great presents for the holidays.

  1. Homemade Gifts: One of the best gifts that you can offer to family or friends. Honestly, a homemade gift is a big win in my book. There are a variety of items that you can diy. I like knitting scarves for my coworkers.
  2. Anime Expo 4 Day pass: I took advantage of the Black Friday sale for Anime Expo tickets. I bought tickets for myself and my sister. It was a deal and four days of an anime con, who wouldn’t love that.
  3. A video game: I‘m not a hardcore gamer, but I do enjoy playing on my 3DS. My recommendations are Pokemon Sun and Moon, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, Harvest Moon, or Rune Factory. There’s also Zelda which I enjoy.
  4. Book subscription: Owlcrate and Uppercase are two wonderful book subscriptions that I have tried out. For you fellow bookworm, a book subscription is a wonderful surprise that he or she would enjoy. Owlcrate may be a bit more costly than Uppercase, but I feel Owlcrate has more goodies.
  5. A journal: Journals make amazing gifts. What I have noticed is that most people who receive journals as gifts usually start writing in them during the new year. There are several ways you can use a journal. I have my personal journal and I am thinking of making an anime journal.
  6. A planner: Like the journal, a planner is perfect for the new year. I love the Happy Planner since it very customizable and aesthetically appealing. I’ve also heard wonderful reviews for the Bando planner as well. For those two planners I suggest purchasing them when they are on sale. Other than that, Marshalls or TJMaxx have an amazing stationary area that have a variety of planners.
  7. Museumย tickets: I am a huge history nerd and have found museums like Norton Simon, Bowers, and Getty Villa are wonderful places to go to in Southern California.
  8. ย A candle: I’ve recently started loving bookish candles. Check out Frostbeard Studio or any etsy stores will do just find.
  9. Purchasing a class: There are a variety of deals on Groupon.
  10. ย Gift cards: Gift cards make an awesome present. My favorite gift cards are for Barnes and Noble, Target, Ikea, and Amazon.
