Unique Gift Ideas for Everyone on Your Nice List

November 20, 2019

This year, I’ve partnered with The Shops at Willow Bend to share unique gift ideas for everyone on your list. All of these items can be purchased at Willow Bend, making it a one-stop shop for you to get everything you need. I even included a little something for yourself.

Feel free to mix and match the categories, because they by no means have to stay under their label. Honestly, I love and will use all of them. Well, besides the beard oil. I gave that one to Adam.

For him

Shops at Willow Bend Gift ideas STAG beard oil

Looking for a gift for your significant other? Dad? Brother? Coworker?

Whether they have a full beard or a baby one, they will love STAG’s Premium Beard Oil from STAG Beard Products. It’s enriched with Biotin, Vitamins D and E, essential oils, and adds nutrients to the hair and skin. Not to mention, it smells manly and wonderful.

Maybe they are an avid foodie or grill master and would love an autographed copy of John Tesar’s Texas Steakhouse Meals at Home. Stop by Knife Steakhouse and grab a copy.

For her

Pretty accessories make great gifts for the leading lady in your life. Fortunately, Willow Bend has a plethora of options.

Maybe she would like a Trollbeads Limited Edition Vine of Dreams bracelet from Trollbeads? It makes a great addition to a silver arm party, or can be worn on it’s own. These bracelets are the perfect simple accessory.

Since leopard is huge right now, add a beautiful Evereve Border Leopard Scarf to their wardrobe. Evereve carries clothes, shoes, and accessories for every fashion-lover on your list.

For the hostess

Shops at Willow Bend Gift ideas Mallow Box

Do you have a woman in your life that loves hosting parties? I am always the first to volunteer my house, no matter how tiny it is, for get-togethers. There’s something about adding fun details to a party that hostesses love.

Stuff her stocking with a Crate & Barrel Stocking Spatula and Cookie Cutter Set. Crate & Barrel has high-quality housewares and furniture making it the perfect stop for anyone on your list.

Another great gift idea is a Mallow Box Variety Set. All of Mallow Box‘s gourmet marshmallows are made from scratch in different flavors, dipped, and made into mallookies (marshmallow cookies). This only amplifies my hot chocolate addiction.

For the fitness fan

Shops at Willow Bend Gift ideas BootyQueen bands

Grab a set of BootyQueen™ Bands from BootyQueen Apparel for the fitness lover in your life. Not only are these bands 2-3 times stronger than other leading bands, they come with a portable gym bag. Each set comes with three bands for three different resistance levels, beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

For the kid

Whether you are shopping for a child in your life, or a kid-at-heart, these Crayola Experience Color-in Socks are one-of-a-kind. Throw it in with a visit to Crayola Experience Plano, and you will win mom/dad/aunt/uncle/cousin/adult of the year. Grab your ticket here.

For yourself

After a full day of shopping, you deserve to reward yourself. Schedule a salon or spa treatment at Mynd Spa. Feel free to grab a Spa Gift Card for someone else on your list while you are there.
