The most wonderful time of the year is finally upon us! We all want to make this holiday season special for our loved ones, but in 2020, gift giving is more challenging than ever. Consumer $ense is here to help relieve the stress of gift giving during a pandemic with a holiday gift guide for all of the special people in your life. 

Check out our recent post to help you save on all of these holiday goodies: 8 Online Shopping Hacks to Guarantee Savings This Holiday Season

For Women 

Give the special woman in your life the gift of comfort with a matching sweat suit in her favorite color. Sweat suits are perfect for women who are working and learning from home, but they are also chic and stylish for girls on the go. Find some great options on Amazon, which average around $35 (one price for the matching top and bottom!)

Another great gift idea is the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer, which you can find on Walmart.com for $41.99 (and it arrives before Christmas for FREE). This tool combines blow drying with styling so women can effortlessly complete their hair routine in half the time, and it is great for women of any hair length.

Makeup mirrors are also a must for many girl’s morning routines. Vanity mirrors with lights are perfect for desk and counter tops, and they’re great gifts for women who love makeup and skincare. Check out this makeup mirror from Amazon for $34.99 which also arrives before Christmas.

Great stocking stuffers for women are gift cards to their favorite stores, gift certificates for the nail salon, face masks, perfume, jewelry, and fuzzy socks.

For Men

When shopping for the man in your life, consider browsing Yeti products. Yeti makes a bag cooler that is perfect for guys, and it is extremely durable. The insulated bag can keep cans and bottles cold for days. You may spend a little more for these products, but trust the reviews and know that they will last for a long time and the quality is peak. 

Another great Yeti gift is the Rambler Colster. This can koozie comes in three different sizes, and the double wall of stainless-steel insulation keeps cans cold. This koozie is great for the outdoorsman, beach lovers, and grill masters alike. At $24.99 for a 12 oz bottle, it is a great option for the holidays.

Shirt Jackets are a huge style trend for men this winter. Consider sherpa or fleece lined shirt jackets to keep guys cozy and warm this holiday season. Carhartt beanies are also a great accessory to pair with shirt jackets, and they come in over 20 different colors for around $16.99.

Great stocking stuffers for men are bottle openers, gift cards, cologne, socks, and phone wallets. 

For Teens

As the teenagers in your life are starting to drive, consider the James Corden Carpool Karaoke microphone, which comes in at $49.99 on Amazon and arrives before Christmas. This microphone is Bluetooth compatible, and tunes to the radio making road trips with friends really fun! Another great gift for your music-loving teenager is a portable Bluetooth speaker. Bose, Beats, and JBL make great, long-lasting speakers that are perfect for teens to use at home or on the go.

Smart home devices are also really cool gifts for teens, especially those that are about to go off to college. The Amazon Echo Dot (at $29.99, the 4th generation arrives before Christmas!) and Google Nest Hub ($89.99) are especially popular this holiday season. These devices use voice interaction to set alarms, check the weather and news, play music, and search the web.

The Play Station 5 may be the most popular item among teens this holiday season. Unfortunately, it is a challenging gaming console to find as they are flying off the shelves and sold out almost everywhere. Rumor has it, Best Buy will be selling more PS5 consoles TOMORROW morning sometime after 9:00AM, according to CNET. If you’re able to get your hands on the PS5 this holiday season, it is safe to assume that it will be your videogame-loving teen’s favorite gift!

Great stocking stuffers for teens are Bluetooth headphones, gift cards, auxiliary cords, phone wallets, sunglasses, and vinyl stickers for laptops and water bottles.

For Kids

In 2020, it is especially important to keep kids occupied and active. Sleds are a classic and timeless gift that allows kids to go outside and get fresh air during the winter months. They are great gifts for kids of all ages, and they are fun for the whole family. Amazon has a wide range of sleds available, and depending on the quality you are looking for, can be bought for as little as $12.99. Razor Scooters are also a fun gift for kids when the weather warms up.

The Nintendo Switch Lite is a really fun gift idea for kids who are interested in video games. It is a portable, hand-held, gaming device that comes in 4 different colors. There are over 2,000 Nintendo Switch games that can be purchased separately and downloaded digitally. Find it on Game Stop in turquoise for $199.99. and pick it up in store for $5 off your order. 

The Fujifilm Instax Mini is a modern-day instant camera that is easy to use and perfect for kids who love to take pictures. The camera comes in a variety of different colors, and film is included with the purchase of the camera. These photos are great keepsakes for kids, and they are fun to display as decoration in a kid’s room. Fujifilm also sells their film separately, and the perfect stocking stuffer for kids who love this camera. You can find it from a variety of retailers, ranging from $60- $70 for the Instax Mini 11.

Other great stocking stuffers for kids include their favorite candy, craft supplies, stuffed animals, action figures, and fun socks.

 Happy shopping! We hope you have a very Merry Christmas! Happy holidays from all of us at Consumer Sense!
