Want to give something that they will use over and over again? Or maybe something that surprises them every month or every other month? Then take a look at these gifts that keep on giving!
Every year I do a gift guide featuring gifts that continue to give throughout the year. Welcome to the 2018 version of that.
Of course, there are gift subscription boxes, an obvious and great gift that keeps on giving, but this year, I also opted to include a few practical, useful gifts that the gift recipient will find themselves using over and over again.
Let’s get started!
Some brands provided products and/or compensation for inclusion in this gift guide. However, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. This post contains affiliate links for your shopping convenience. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.
Gifts that Keep Giving
Subscription Gift Boxes that Keep Giving
Wine is always a good idea.
If they drink wine, they will love this gift. Get them a subscription to Firstleaf Wine Club. Choose from red, white or a mix and how often to send them a box (every month, every 2 months, every 3 months, etc.). You can also choose what regions to get the wine from – USA, Imported or a mix. This is perfect for those people who love to try new wines, but also great for those who are just jumping into the wine world. Find out more about the Firstleaf subscription box here. If you’d rather specifically select a few wines to get them, then just visit the Firstleaf store here and do that!
Candles, Bath Products and More Box
This one is for those guys or gals who love to soak and unwind in a hot bath. These gift subscription boxes come with luxury bath goodies as well as a great smelling candle to help them relax as well. Find them here.
For the Snacker…
These snack subscription boxes from MOUTH come with a variety of 4-5 different snacks which could include a fruit and nut mix, gourmet pickles, popcorn, Indie poptarts and much more. Take a look at the different options here.
Monogram Lover Subscription Box
For those people on your list who just can’t get enough monograms in their life, snag them this monogram monthly subscription box! Each month your gift recipient will receive a surprise monogrammed item just for them! You can choose from different size options for the box as well.
Useful Gifts that Keep on Giving
Never ever discount just how much someone will appreciate a great pair of pajamas. Every year, my in-laws get me a new cozy pair of pjs for Christmas and every year, I wear the heck out of them. These Womens pajamas have great reviews and come in a variety of colors and patterns to choose from – same with the men’s!
Keep their drinks cold.
If they have yet to buy themselves a YETI, do it for them now. Grunt Labor rarely drinks out of anything besides a YETI cup. We even have lowball YETIs for our cocktails. These suckers keep your cold drinks cold for hours and vice versa for your hot drinks. They even have YETI coffee mugs now if that would fit your gift recipient better.
Something pretty and useful.
I adore this necklace, y’all. When I first saw it at The MET, I thought it was just beautiful, but when I realized that it was also a magnifying glass, I couldn’t get over how they had managed to merge beauty and functionality so perfectly together! This is perfect for those ladies on your list who have trouble reading small print and could very much benefit from a handy little magnifying glass posing as a pretty necklace around their neck. The reviews on this necklace are fantastic as well.
A special, but useful knife.
On top of the beautiful detailing this pocket knife sports, you can also have it engraved with the gift recipient’s initials. This knife from Things Remembered is both special and useful. It has great reviews as well!
They’ll always have something to watch.
If they have yet to jump on the Firestick train, then go ahead and pull them on board this holiday season. I’ll be the first to say that when Grunt bought us one, I was like, why do we need that? And then I discovered that with this one little thing, I could watch all the television series I’d never gotten to watch before (Ally McBeal, Six Feet Under) and then re-watch all my favorites (The Sopranos, American Horror Story). On top of that, I can also feed my 1970s, 80s and 90s movie addictions. Snag the Firestick or find out more about it here.
Fresh smelling hands.
I really don’t mind cooking, in fact, sometimes I get in moods where I really love to cook, but I absolutely detest the smell that garlic and onions leave behind on my hands. To get rid of those, I run the back of a stainless steel knife along my fingers under the water. Let me just go ahead and tell you that this stainless steel soap bar is much safer. This is such a useful item that anyone who cooks often would be appreciative of.
Year Round Herbs
Winter has zero effect on this garden. The AeroGarden can be used year round to grow fresh herbs, salads greens and more. It’s perfect for the black thumbs too – it tells you when to add water!
I am the queen of forgetting to defrost meat. And never once have I ever successfully been able to use my microwave to defrost either. To those of you who have actually figured out how to properly use those settings, my hat is off to you. For the rest of us, there’s this defrosting mat.
Insulated Wine Tote
It only makes sense to start and end with wine, right? 😉 This wine tote is something they’ll be able to reuse over and over again. This tote is perfect for them to load up their favorite wines to take to BYOB restaurants, a picnic in the park or parties!
