Holiday Gift Guide – Last Minute Gifts
I’m not usually a last minute shopper, like at all, but find my self shopping later and later near Holiday season to get gifts for family. It’s not that I’m a last minute shopper per say, but more so that time just gets the best of me sometimes. This year I’m quite thankful that I am just about done with my Holiday Shopping – I just need to pick up some last minute boxes of candy, but I know that many are still on the hunt for that perfect gift. I have a few gifts I would love to share with all of you, from a wide range of products that you could pick up as a last minute buy. Whether you have a fitness addict, a beauty lover or anyone in between, any of these gifts no matter the size would surely put a smile on someone’s face this holiday season. This Holiday Gift Guide is especially fun for the last minute gifts but can be someone for anyone.
The KITLIFE Planner for 2017 is by far one of the best KITLIFE planners to date and I have had three of them prior. Kit Life stands fro Keeping It Together and it’s a planner that offers just that. For the working mom or stay at home mom, anyone who feels the need to keep organized by writing things down and a list maker – the KITLife Planner is for them. When it comes to holiday gift giving – I love giving away planners because they help ring in the new year on a new foot. KITLIFE has been a favorite of mine now for a while but they have since made quite a few changes. I’ll have a full review and walk through coming soon. If you enjoyed the original planner but wanted something more, I think you’ll love this one. It’s gorgeous, bright and bold and feels so luxe and helps me with my planning.
You can purchase the KITLIFE Planner for 2017 at: http://kitlife.net/ The planners start at: $58.00 and as of today 12/21/16 the KIT Team is offering a 15% off discount of your purchase of a new planner and more.
**a full review of this planner will be coming here to Honeygirlsworld.com soon – so stay tuned.
Back to the Roots Mushroom Farm or Garden-In-A-Can are great gifts to get for anyone that loves to grow their own fruits and vegetables. It’s especially great gifts for those who live in an apartment and don’t have access to growing their own produce outside. Since Spring follows the winter season, why not give someone a headstart on growing their own products. Back to the Roots is passionate about “Undoing Food” and creating sustainable, delicious products to help kids and families reconnect with their food and how it’s grown. Whether in the kitchen or in the classroom (or both), Back to the Roots’ organic Mushroom Farms, aquaponic Water Garden fish tanks and Organic Garden-In-A-Can goodies can be found at Whole Foods or other select retailers and make wonderful gifts.
Back to the Roots offers a variety of Gift Sets this holiday season and I love that they make great gifts not only for family members and friends but teachers, administrators and others to help encourage learning about sustainable living. Since my family and I absolutely love tending to our own garden, growing vegetables and fruits, flowers and more – gifts like these really resonate with us and my sons absolutely love the fact that these are perfect presents for their teachers this year to add to their classroom garden.
You can purchase Back to the Roots sets at: https://backtotheroots.com/collections/all or at your local Whole Foods or Home Depot stores.
Everyone uses hand soap and Method has wonderful limited edition packaging and scents for the holiday season. I especially love picking up these kinds of products for teachers and school staff since they make such great gifts. The Method Holiday Hand Wash Collection is perfect and offers seasonal scents that are sure to please and sleigh your favorite teacher. With Frosted Fir and Vanilla Chai wrapped in a fun + festive forest design which absolutely evokes snow-dusted evergreens and bright baubles with sparkling stars. I love them. These make great gifts to put into a gift bag and gift to your co-worker or friends too. Like I said before – everyone uses hand soaps and these are just great.

I use the case to also store my headphones / earbuds and mini fitness tracker for safe keeping.

I LOVE Tea and I think it’s a great gift to give to anyone for the holiday season. Pique Tea has been one of my faves over the last couple of months and I definitely think it would make a fabulous gift for anyone, especially a tea drinker. Pique Tea is Tea Crystals that dissolve in hot or cold water. They are sugar-free and free of calories and are organic and free from artificial flavors and preservatives. The teas offer 2x the antioxidants of leading tea bags and are sourced from top 5% of tea leaves. These are my favorites for on the go because there are no messy tea bags, just drop the crystals in your water or liquid, stir and you’re good to go.
Pique Tea Crystals retail for $7.99 for a set of 14 sachets/packets and can be purchased at: https://www.piquetea.com/
Keysocks are something I think would make great gifts for the lady or girl in your life. These socks are the ultimate solution for keeping your feet comfortable without showing that you are wearing socks. They come in a variety of colors and are perfect for the business lady or the casual one. Keysocks are knee high no-show socks that never slip, and keep feet blister free and legs comfortably warm in any shoe, any time.
Retailing for $10 + these socks are a definite must have, especially during the cold winter months. You can learn more about them or purchase them at: http://www.keysocks.com/
Pedi Pamper is another great find for the holiday gift giving season because they are great for treating your feet during the colder months. Pedi Pamper is a 7 Day Foot Peeling Mask that offers a pain free solution to dry callused feet. This product is absolutely easy to use and you can purchase it via their Amazon site. I love products like these for Holiday Gift Giving because they make great additions to a “Spa or Pampering Gift Bag”, simply tuck it into a basket or gift bag with other items like lotion, bath bombs and even a gorgeous toe nail polish and your gift is good to go.
Pedi Pamper is a spa experience at home and is fast, easy and comfortable to use.

The eRase e60 by Emjoi ($79.95) is a fabulous gift for the beauty lover. This top selling corded, dual speed epilator by Emjoi absolutely outshines competitors offering quick and effective removal of unwanted hair from the body and face with minimal discomfort. It’s one of my favorite tools and I think it would make a fabulous gift. The eRase e60 is highly effective with its 60 tweezer action discs that are arranged in skin-tautening dual opposing heads that removes hair from the root (as short as 0.3 mm), leaving the skin smooth for up to 6 weeks.
The Erase Glide Technology enables the user to glide the unit back and forth, or in a circular motion over the skin to remove hair in seconds, while also being gentle enough to remove individual facial hair on the chin or upper lip. The eRase e60 also comes with a sensitive attachment for the epilator head, resulting in a product designed to be mild enough to remove hair where the user is most sensitive, including underarms, while still remaining easy to use and reliable. I love that the eRase is able to remove most hair on the first past, which is perfect for my sensitive skin to help reduce skin irritation. There are limited edition patterns and colors available and this unit is something I wish I could get for a gift under my tree.

Nail Lacquers make great holiday gifts and awesome stocking stuffers too. These gorgeous polishes from SpaRitual are becoming some of my favorites because they allow me to use Glitter for my holiday festivities without the hassle of taking them all off. The SpaRitual Unveil Peel-Off Basecoat makes a fabulous gift and I highly suggest it for anyone who loves painting their nails with glitter but hates the removal process.
Of course, I had to include a gorgeous glittery polish from SpaRitual because it just absolutely screams holiday and will have your nails sparkling to ring in the New Years. I suggest choosing out a fun glitter polish and the Unveil Peel-Off Basecoat and your gift giving to your favorite nail polish lover is complete. These will make great gifts and who doesn’t love a fun nail polish to ring in the new year.

While not a traditional gift, I think anything that allows you to filter your water would make an awesome present for anyone this holiday season. ZeroWater offers a variety of products for your filtration needs. The 10 Cup Ready-Pour pitcher is the first in its class that comes with a sealed lid and reservoir, making it possible to pour water that has already been filtered without spilling water that’s still filtering.
The ZeroWater Silver Tumbler or Blue Tumbler has an Ion Exchange Filter so you can have pure-tasting water anywhere you go. The ZeroWater Tumbler combines the top performing filtration technology with a sleek, convenient design. You get great taste out of your tap water whether you are at home, at work or even at the gym or on the go.

Each of these as well as the replacement filters can be purchased at: https://www.zerowater.com or select retails like: Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohl’s and Amazon.com
Get a fun gift for the Tomboy in your life or just get your Camo Fix. TomboX’s new collection offers either blue or green in their bralettes, iconic briefs, trunks and boxer briefs. These selections feature their signature, silky black band for comfort and their cute and stylish camo design. These are fun to support the troops or to just add a little fun to any wardrobe. I love buying these because they are sweet and cute without being too revealing so they make great gifts. Also TomboyX bottoms come in sizes XS to 4XL and their bralettes XS to 3XL so giving it to that girlfriend, sister or anyone else whether they are tomboy or not will be giving them a comfortable gift that will make them feel confident – no matter the size.

When it comes to last minute gifts, stocking stuffers tend to make that list as well since they don’t necessarily require much wrapping and are quick to get. StickerBeans make great gifts for the little boys and girls in your life (teens and even adults included) and are so fun. Available in two-inch, five-inch and two-feet sizes ranging in prices from $3.50 to $55.00 – StickerBeans are definitely fun. Bling is all the rave now a days and Entrepreneurs Dana Runyon and Kim Spadaccini have created an easy way to add glitter and glitz to everything from cell phone cases to laptops, tablets and notebooks, lockers and so much more.
