A Christmas Gift Idea For Everyone On Your List

A Christmas Gift Idea For Everyone On Your List

babblebox gift box

Guys, I’ve got gift ideas for you, no matter who’s on your Christmas list this year. The coolest Millenial in the family? No problem. The niece who lives across the country? Friend, I’ve got you covered. The parent who has everything? Don’t stress, there’s something for dad, too.

Let’s discuss.

electric toothbrush waterpik toothbrush

First up is the Waterpik: Complete Care 5.0 Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush. There isn’t a single family member or friend on your list who couldn’t benefit from (and love) a Waterpik water flosser toothbrush. We love these toothbrushes at my house, and my dental bills love them even more. My kids straight up get fewer cavities when they brush with their Waterpik because it gets into those hard to reach places and cleans up like a champ.

Who needs this gift: Grandpa, dad, girlfriend, teenage son, spouse? This gift is universal.

1. Sandisk: iXpand Base

Next up is the Sandisk iXpand Base. Everyone with an iPhone needs this in their life. It’s a charging base and automatic backup for your iPhone.

Let me say that again in case you missed it: the SanDisk iXpand Base charges your phone and backs up all your stunning photos at the same time. As someone whose iPhone hasn’t been backed up since (UGH) April, I’m totally on board with this. It’s small enough to sit on a small nightstand or dresser but big enough to store up to 256GB (GUYS).

You will 100% be the favorite person on Christmas morning if you gift this to your: girlfriend, boyfriend, spouse, parents, children, nieces, nephews, best friend, boss.


2 & 4. FUJIFILM instax® instant film & FUJIFILM instax® SHARE SP-3 SQ printer

I’ve been jonesing for a photo printer for years. The idea of printing my smartphone photos right into my hot hands is so appealing, I’ve wanted one forever. The FUJIFILM instax® printer is so convenient all you have to do is download the app to your phone and print your photos.

You can even print photos from your social media accounts like Facebook and Instagram – and get this: your Instagram photos with a hashtag? You can find and print those, too. Every time we travel as a family I use a specific hashtag, and I love the idea of using this printer to print up all the photos we took on our family vacation to Paris and Spain this summer right at my own kitchen table.

Friends, this is magnificent.

Get this FUJIFILM printer for the crafters in your life (parties with photos of a birthday kid plastered all over the place!), every parent you know (especially grandparents who can print up photos at their own convenience), and the college kid who loves decorating their dorm room with photos of their college buddies.


3. Sabon: Cheers to Rose Tea Kit

Sabon’s best-selling body scrub + lotion would make a delightful gift for the women in your life. I’m thinking of mother-in-laws (my own, in particular), grandmothers, and any other women of discerning taste who love smelling lightly of beautiful rose. And Dead Sea beauty products are always a hit for the beauty lovers in your life, me included.

5. Le Tote Fashion Subscription Box

Okay, surely you’ve heard of fashion subscription boxes. They’re the bees knees as far as I’m concerned. Basically, you choose a plan (my current plan is $59/month), pick out clothes from a variety of high fashion brands + styles (companies like French Connection, Vince Camuto, BCBGeneration, Sanctuary, Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff, and Cole Haan), and enjoy new gorgeous clothes and accessories for an entire month without any commitment. If you want to buy one of the items shipped to you, just pay Le Tote’s discounted price of 20-50% off retail and it’s yours.

I’m currently waiting on the items in the photo above (I’m dying about the Moto jacket!), and when I’m done wearing what’s in the box, (to a holiday party, maybe) I’ll send it all back and get another outfit. I can cancel at any time.

Give this holiday gift to the new professional in your life, with the hot job (but not a hot wardrobe) the friend who recently lost weight and doesn’t have anything to wear, or yourself.  It’s a great way to get out of a fashion rut without the commitment of adding bulk to your closet.


6.  Arctic Cool: Instant Cooling Shirt

I’ll tell you what: this Hydrofreeze t-shirt is going right on my Christmas list and straight into my summer swim meet gear bag.  Not for my kids, but for me. In fact, every single parent of an athlete I know needs this in their arsenal, asap. Activewear that cools my overheated swim parent self at summer swim meets? SOLD.

Arctic Cool uses something called HydroFreeze X, which is a fiber-based cooling system to move moisture (aka sweat) away from the skin so you can stay cool (um, 30 degrees cooler, whut.) while everyone else is hot.

If you are a sports parent, or know a sports parent, put a few of these in your shopping cart. Come July the thank you cards will come rolling in.


7. 23andMe: DNA Ancestry Kit

I’ve wanted to test my DNA for a really long time. A lot of my family members are getting in on the action, and it’s been so fun to see where my siblings genetic test results are coming from. An adopted family member of mine even connected with birth parents through their 23andMe DNA test. I think DNA testing is the absolute coolest.

The best part is how easy it is to get your DNA tested. Order your 23andMe kit, follow the super simple instructions, (i.e. spit into a tube, register your sample, and send it back to 23andMe in the provided prepaid package), and in 6-8 weeks you’ll have your results.

Who would love a DNA test for Christmas? Everyone you know. My grandparents would’ve gone bananas for genetic testing – they would’ve loved to have known exactly where they really came from, and all the surprises therein.

Who else? Your parents, your in-laws, your partner, your children, your siblings, aunts and uncles, and long lost cousins.

I cannot WAIT to get my results back. Grab some kits now; 23andMe has great holiday deals right now through December 26th, so hurry!


I hope you found all the Christmas gift ideas you need in this gift guide. There’s something for everyone, including yourself! Treat yourself, and have a very Merry Christmas.
