Every year, it seems the holidays sneak up on
us—and every year, that brings with it the dreaded last-minute gift panic.
Finding a present that hits all the right notes can be surprisingly stressful,
even when it comes to people you’ve known for years.
But have no fear! I’ve lined up a list of
unique gifts for every “type” on your list. And since I work in real estate,
they are all centered around home life. From the coffee snob to the sports
enthusiast, these presents are the perfect way to bring beauty, function, or a
touch of whimsy to your loved one’s home this holiday season.
THOSE WHO ARE ALWAYS IN THE KITCHEN
We all know someone whose kitchen is their
happy place—but once all the basics are covered, it can be hard to find the
perfect present. These gifts will be a treat for the chef, baker, or food lover
on your list, no matter how well equipped they are.
Have a java lover on your list who just can’t
get their brew right at home? This high-end pour-over system makes a smooth
brew that can even be refrigerated and reheated so your recipient can enjoy a
perfect cup at any time.
Help your favorite gourmand create
restaurant-quality meals with this kit that allows them to grow delicious
mushrooms right in their cupboard. All they’ll need to do is soak the wood and
put it in a cool place, then wait a few weeks, and voila—mushrooms! Best of
all, they can keep growing mushrooms on the same log for years.
If you’re lucky enough to have a fabulous home
baker on your list, give a gift that reflects the joy their treats bring to
others. This lovely glass cake stand is the platform that a beautifully
decorated dessert deserves.
Your favorite tea lover may have tried all of
the herbal blends out there, but we bet they haven’t seen tea like this. This
set contains two “blossoms” of tea leaves hand-sewn around flowers that bloom
when you place them in the included glass teapot and add hot water.
THOSE WHO WOULD RATHER BE IN THE BACKYARD
For many of us, time outdoors is the ultimate
source of rejuvenation. The nature-lover on your list is sure to appreciate
these presents that help them maximize that joy in their daily lives.
If your loved one prefers to enjoy their flora
without all the work, a delivery of farm-fresh flowers is sure to surprise and
delight. And you can keep the joy blossoming year-round with a monthly or

plastic into their home? This reusable metal straw means they’ll never have to

case, they can use it at home or on the go.

solar-powered phone charger, which comes with a built-in flashlight and
compass, is a must-have. It will also make a great addition to their home
THOSE WITH THEIR NOSE TO GRINDSTONE
Like it or not, most of us spend a good chunk
of our lives working—whether at a job or on projects and chores around the
house. These gifts are designed to make that work a bit easier and more

germaphobic. This UV wand kills viruses and bacteria in seconds without any
wiping or washing required. It’s perfect for disinfecting shoes, computer
keyboards, and more!
THOSE MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT THEIR HOBBIES
Of course, there’s a lot more to life than
work. If you’re gifting a friend or family member who really lights up when
they talk about their hobbies, we’ve got you covered.
