Don’t be fooled by the sunny skies – Holiday Gift Guide season has arrived. As a PR agency, we have already begun media outreach for the perfect HGG for our clients’ best products. While some guides are more general, some can be themed or tailored to a specific recipient. In the midst of these niche gift guides are some wacky, uber-specific guides that may not be your first choice as a consumer but will definitely make you smile!
Here are some of my favorite Holiday Gift Guides from season’s past:
With sneaky, local sources like the airport or the grocery store, Elle knows best that “just because you waited doesn’t mean you don’t care.”
From portable coffee mugs to “Spa in a Bag,” these are fun and useful gifts for your favorite coworker to spice up their office space.
These gifts are exactly as described. Check out the glamping-on-steroids yurt or wine-on-the-go travel bag if you don’t believe me.
Whether you’re budget-conscious, crafty and creative, or looking for something personal, you can’t go wrong with DIY.
The whimsical blog chose an equally whimsical theme for its first ever holiday gift guide last year. The Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory concept consists of six rooms with compatible gifts, like Dolce & Gabbana round sunglasses in the infamous Fizzy Lifting Drinks Bubble room.
No one does books better than the NY Times, and this guide doesn’t disappoint.
It’s not just clothes – these accessories, gadgets, and home décor are perfect for your stylish friend.
You can give the gift of giving with products that donate proceeds to charity. Whether it’s for an animal-lover or tree-hugger, pick the gift based on its partner organization.
My personal favorite from this collection: slippers for a Taurus, because “whilst they enjoy luxurious things and appreciate a lazy day, they also value practicality.”
2016 Gift Guides might be a tough act to follow, but we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the 2017 Holiday season!
