These ideas are perfect for all you humans out there who are looking for something thoughtful and meaningful to give to your friends and family.


Whether you're looking for something practical, fun, or more substantial, these gift ideas will help you find the perfect present for everyone on your list. We want to help you to celebrate your loved ones with gusto even if you almost ran out of time (we can work more on time management with your coach 😉). So take a deep breath and read on for some inspiration on how to make this holiday season a little bit brighter for everyone. Ultimately, a truly blessed person is someone who is and knows they are genuinely loved and that's a gift no one could buy.



1. Personalized gifts.

As humans, we have a longing of being known. Show your loved ones how much you appreciate them by giving them a personalized gift with their name or initials. This could be something as simple as a monogrammed mug, a scent from Le Labo with this human's name on the packaging, a piece of jewelry with their initials and a thoughtful note. Want to go the extra mile? Create a custom-made piece of art, journal, or a photo album from your experiences over the years. Personalized gifts show a level of care that money can't buy and that you put time and effort into choosing a gift. All making your gift that much more special and meaningful to your loved one making this an easy win!


2. DIY gifts.

As humans, we are naturally curious and creative. Why not tap into your inner artist and put together a DIY gift? This can be something as simple as a homemade candle, custom pottery from a class you took, or a batch of cookies. Up for a DIY piece that’s more elaborate? Try a piece of handmade jewelry, an abstract painting, a thoughtful letter with additional drawings, or even order them a custom hat with graphics you designed. Not only will your loved ones appreciate the thought and effort that went into the gift, but it will also be a one-of-a-kind present that your human will treasure for years to come.

3. Subscription boxes.

Humans love surprises (generally 😄) and variety. A subscription box service ships packages filled with a curated selection of items based on a specific interest or hobby, and they are delivered to your human on a regular basis. This way, they can enjoy a surprise gift every month while discovering new items they love and are excited about!

4. Experiences.

As humans, we are social beings who thrive on shared experiences. Instead of giving a physical gift, why not give your loved ones an experience that they will never forget? This could be tickets to a concert or show, a gift certificate for a spa day, a hot air balloon ride, or even time cooking with a professional chef. These types of gifts create lasting memories and can be enjoyed for years to come.

5. Handwritten letters.

As humans, we crave emotional connection and intimacy. If your loved ones are the type who already have everything they need, why not write them a heartfelt letter expressing your love and appreciation? In today's digital age, a handwritten letter is a rare and special gesture that can be treasured for years to come. As humans, we are capable of deep emotional expression and connection, so take the time to sit down and write out your thoughts and feelings, and let your loved ones know how much they mean to you.


No matter which last-minute gift idea you choose, the important thing is to communicate to your humans you see, know, and care for them while experiencing the joy of giving! Hopefully this list of ideas has sparked fresh ideas for you this year! So take a deep breath (count to 8 😉), relax, and know that as a human, you can still find the perfect gift in the eleventh hour.


Happy holidays, fellow humans!
