good gift ideasChristmas’s and birthdays always fill me with dread. It’s not that people are hard to buy for, it’s that I want my friends and family to be not only excited when they open my gift but to also build a reputation where my gift is the one left until last to open, because people know it will be thoughtful and surprising.

So next time you feel the need to reach for that gift card with a dollar amount on it or stuff some cash into their card, consider these.

Do they complain about the price of being healthy?

Get them a smoothie maker!

NutriBullet Pro 9 piece has a solid 4 star rating, good sales and handy accessories like travel cups and multi-use blades so they can pass on their ability to blend veg to a fine paste and embark on the hidden veg journey.

On the Cheap?

I found this Personal Blender, Doctor Hetzner 300W Smoothie Maker (.4 horse power) just the right price to make them uncomfortable thinking I had spent too much on them. Perfect for that aunt who thinks quality = money. Consider this, over 200 people who bought this on Amazon.com gave it 5 stars.

Is someone you know always losing something?

Get them a key finder!

TrackR pixel Bluetooth tracking device 8 pack for $100. Comes with an app, LED flashing light and phone finder with a 90 decibel ringer. Solid ratings and sales, this is a good one to get started on.

On the cheap?

Buy them one Tile Slim wallet finder for under $30 and give them a taste of how these devices can make them look more organised than they have ever been.

Do you watch your friend trying to listen to music through their phone speaker?

Give them a JBL Charge 3 for just over $100. Not only will giving this speaker as a gift make you the best person ever, it comes with the option to use it as a charger for your mobile phone. IPX7 waterproof and 20 hours of battery, they’ll be the life of the occasion playing music through their phone to show it off.

On the Cheap?

Over 24000 people bought this OontZ Angle 3 Portable Bluetooth speakers and 72% of them gave it 5 stars. Loud, lightweight, dust-proof, rain-proof and splash proof if they don’t like it, keep it for yourself and give them that box of cookies you keep as spare a present from the car.
