Konnect Agency Holiday Gift Guide

Happy Holidays from Konnect Agency! This year we have put together a list of all our holiday must-haves! Whether its for your mom, brother, significant other, or even a gift for yourself, we’ve got you covered!

For the Athleisure Lover

Nike Cortez Sneakers
There is nothing better than a good pair of sneakers. I LOVE my all white Nike Cortez sneaks. They match with everything, are super comfortable and not to mention they will always be trendy. They can be worn simply with leggings and a hoodie or can be dressed up with jeans and a leather jacket. (And yes, they have men’s sizes too). – Carissa

For the Business Professional

Monogrammed Business Card Holder
This is one of my favorite gifts I’ve ever received! When I graduated college, my mom gave me the most adorable monogrammed business card holder. Thanks to the personalization, it felt really unique and the chic, purse-friendly design was one of the first things that made me feel like an adult. I’d like to think that prospective employers also thought I was really on top of my game when I pulled it out. I’m giving one to my sister this year for her college graduation! – Ali

Anker PowerCore 5000 External Battery
As publicists, we’re always on the go and always in touch via email or phone, which means we’re at the mercy of our phone’s battery. This Anker external battery is something that I have and rely on constantly. This should be a gift that anyone should be excited about – who doesn’t need that extra charge when they can’t find an outlet?! – Courtney

For those who love the Great Outdoors

Anything from Parks Project – especially this shirt. You’ll feel good about getting them something they’ll actually use, plus each product purchased from Parks Project contributes directly to one of over 30 different conservancies across the USA, providing vital funding for the ongoing care of National Parks. -Katie

For Christmas this year, I bought my family a guided outdoor excursion from REI: https://www.rei.com/events. The time we will spend together outdoors and active in nature is the ultimate gift and far better than “more stuff.” -Brandy

For the Book Lover

My absolute favorite go-to is Out of Print! They have lots of different styles and are always adding new books to their site. I think for the past 4 or 5 years, I’ve either given or received a gift from them. Also an added bonus, they donate books and support literacy programs around the world with every purchase! – Alyssa

Becoming by Michelle Obama is on my wish list, and is a solid pick that I would feel confident getting any of the women in my life. I personally can’t get enough of our amazing former First Lady, and feel like she has pearls of wisdom to share that will transcend the holiday season and remain valuable for years to come. – Monica

For the Music Lover

This Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone: This is the perfect gift to get for that person in your life who loves music or loves to sing. I’m planning on getting this gift for my dad because he is obsessed with Karaoke and always wants to go to the Karaoke rooms but I absolutely dread going there. This gift will be the best of both worlds since my dad can sing his heart out wherever he is and I won’t feel guilty for not wanting to go to Karaoke with him. – Susie

For Personalized Gift Lover

Shutterfly: This year I did a huge Europe trip with a group of friends. After three weeks of insanely fun travel, I had about 1,000 photos on my phone! I wanted to do something special with them, so they lived beyond my iPhone 6s. I hopped on to Shutterfly and made the most special custom photo books for my friends! I miss the days of printed photos, it’s a great way to look back at the memories and makes for a super personal gift. -Christina

MyPhotoSocks-  MY FAVE! – Amanda

For the Boyfriend/Hubby- 

The perfect gift for my husband! He loves the outdoors and has been needing a new watch! -Tara

Give the gift of health this season with Baze. Priced at only $99, the Baze Starter Kit is a fully tailored experience that combines the convenience of a painless, self-sampled blood test with scientific analysis. The result is a customized 4-week vitamin plan that is based on your personal vitamin deficiencies and aims to improve your immune system, strengthen endurance, elevate energy levels, and more.

Mindfulness Journal:  With work, relationships, and life coming at you fast, it’s easy to forget to take a step back and keep on the path of serenity. This fun and relatable book helps you journal your way through positive affirmations and cathartic activities on your liberating journey toward inner-happiness. -Gabby

Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask – this is my GO TO mask. I’m obsessed with it – gifted it to my friend last year and she couldn’t stop raving about it! Smoothes, hydrates, refines – and the best part it actually SMELLS like watermelon. Perfect for your friend or sister who is obsessed with self-care. – Robin

For the Everyday Use And All Day Empowerment 

I’m giving a pink “GRL PWR” pop-socket to my best friend! Since she always comments on mine! 🙂 -Kuu

For the Novelty Gift Lover

Saint Dolly Prayer Candle – I got this for my little Dolly Parton fan because she loves her and I think it’s so kitschy it’s cool. – Carmen

For the Little Ones: 

One product that I’m completely obsessed with is the newer Sew + Glow kit from Tech Will Save Us, that I will be definitely buying for my nieces and nephews this holiday season – hello coolest aunt ever!!! This educational STEM kit allows kids to design and build glowing badges that light up by using electro thread. I can’t wait to see what they create. – Amy
