Gift ideas for the holidays

Gift ideas for the holidays

The holidays are almost upon us and the people in our lives normally expect gifts. It's always hard to choose gifts, because there's so much to choose from. So I made a list of things that I think is cool and might be nice to give someone or myself. I have some affiliated links added with my list, but it's more about the idea.

I always try to give people thoughtful gifts. Well I love observing others so I normally buy what I think they need or what relates to the things they love doing. The gifts people give me are always girly gifts. Yes I'm a girl and I love girly gifts but I'm also a techie, I have a passion for cooking and I make my own jewelry. It could be because I have a lot of pink stuff, but guess what? I don't like pink. Or maybe I subconsciously do. I once received a pink towel from a secret Santa and I bought the other person a really pretty jewelry box, that I wanted for myself. I wish sometimes I was my own secret Santa. Don't you? Let's just look at my gift list and put aside my pink issues and horrible secret Santa gifts for some other time.

Chefman - Express Air Fryer
Chefman Express Air Fryer: Quickly prepare fried favorites like shrimp and onion rings with this air fryer, which features adjustable temperature control and a 30-minute timer for flexible cooking. The dishwasher-safe basket makes cleanup quick and easy.

So there's my list. Sorry, but I just copied and pasted the descriptions of the products. There's probably other more expensive products out there with a different brand name and similar functions. I know you saw pink again, I'm not sure how that got in there. I love long nails and nail art. I can't help it if that nail thing is pink. I think this should be called the list of gifts I would buy myself if I was my own secret Santa. Everyone else can get a gift card.

Happy holidays everyone from Buffy and Renza! Be safe if you're going away for the holidays and I hope you have an awesome time. Until next time...


  1. Love all the gift ideas! ... Linda B

  2. Hi Lorenza! Loved the ideas. I especially loved the cap with the lights. That would come in handy during a run at night. I did see you picked a few pink items. That's so funny. But seriously, who cares what color it is if it makes cupcakes! Wooooo!!!!

    1. Lol thanks Diane.Yeah it happens a lot where I would buy something and only when I get home I notice it's pink. I'm not sure what's going on. You're right it's more about the function then the colour.

  3. I can recommend the Chromecast, had one for ages. Less of a gadget, more of a bridge to link your gadgets to your TV.

  4. Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog Captain Kirk :-)
