As we move into December, the holiday month, finding presents for friends and family is not always the simplest task. To make your life easier, we have compiled a list of potential gifts for this holiday season. They are sorted from the least expensive to most expensive, and include links to where you can find them.

Hair claw clips $5-15
These have gained popularity over the summer, and they are the perfect thing to keep hair out of your face while still looking stylish. It is a great gift for someone who is looking for the “off-duty model” look.
10ft long phone charger $8
Since phones have become such an essential part of our lives, why should someone have to deal with the short charging cable Apple gives them? By buying one that is 10 feet long, you can now turn over in bed, and charge from a great distance.
Blue light glasses $10-85
With every student and teacher spending an increased amount of time in front of their screens for remote learning and Zoom classes, it is important to protect your eyes from the glaring blue light coming from your computer.
Disposable camera $15-25
We carry phones that have cameras in our pockets every day, which takes away the significance of the memory that was captured. However, taking a photo on a disposable camera is a one-and-done thing, and creates a cool, in the moment, retro picture.
Everyone has either lost or misplaced an item before, and that includes your mask in 2020. Tile is a small object that you can place on any item, connect to your phone, and it will play a loud noise to help you find your missing article. Tile can connect via Bluetooth to help you find everyday items you would usually lose.
Glossier Cloud Paint $18
Many makeup users like Glossier because of the dewy, fresh, and natural look it gives to their face. The Glossier Cloud Paint, a gel-cream blush, is one of their most popular items because it is easy to apply, dermatologist tested and approved and gives the face a nice pink glow.
Lap desk $20
Not everyone has the time or money to sit down and do their work on a full-scale desk. A new lap desk is an easy way to change that with the added ability to bring your workplace anywhere you go. With this item, you can easily be productive and comfortable at the same time.
Gallon water bottle $20
With the constant stresses of school and extracurriculars, it is easy to forget about drinking water. Many students do not realize the amount of water they lose every single day, and that can lead to severe dehydration. Stay hydrated!
LED lights $24-45
Popularized by TikTok, these LED lights will illuminate your room with a variety of colors and settings for brightness. You can change the settings through an easy-to-use remote control and be ready for the holiday season.
Adidas sweatpants $30
Playing a sport in the rain or snow is not so fun when you are drenched in water from head to toe. With the Adidas Tiro 19 Training Pants you will not have to worry anymore because they are made to dry quick, and have ankle zippers for when you have to exchange those cleats for boots.
Are you looking for a more efficient and thrilling way of transportation? Well then getting a starting skateboard is the right choice for you. Some tend to have generally lower prices, and you can enjoy doing it with friends.
Casetify phone case $45-55
Many people consider getting a new phone to be the best gift they have received, but never look at the accessories. Casetify has already-designed cases, or the option to design a case yourself. They allow the buyer to customise their phone cases with any image or text, which gives a normally generic item a more personalized feeling.
Weighted blanket $50
Picture this: you’re looking at the snow falling down outside with a mug of hot chocolate, but there is one problem–you are freezing cold. A quality weighted blanket or comforter will get rid of any uncomfortable moments caused by the harsh New England winters we have.
Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer $60
The most popular hairstyle of 2020, hands down, is definitely the curtain bangs. The Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer is a great way to get that 1970’s look, while also creating volume and silkiness to your hair.
Reebok Club C 85 $70
The Reebok Club C 85 is a classic shoe that can go well with any style. Shifting away from their more athletic side of the brand, Reebok prioritized making a stylish, versatile shoe that everyone would love to have.
Converse Canvas Platform Chuck Taylor All Star $70
Nothing can beat the classics when it comes to clothing and shoes. The Platform Chuck Taylor All Stars are a staple for American culture and experience. The shoes can go well with any outfit and will assure whomever receives them will have a smile on their face.
L.L. Bean slippers $80
As we head into colder weather, slippers are just the thing you need to keep your feet warm. The LL Bean slippers are the perfect item because they are guaranteed to keep your toes toasty with cozy shearling on the inside and premium sheepskin on the outside.
Canon IVY Mini Photo Printer $90
Older generations would compare the new Canon-IVY Mini Photo Printer to Polaroid cameras. The device allows the user to connect through their app and print any photo from their camera roll with the added option to include emojis, text or simply edit the photo with filters.
Patagonia Better Sweater $120
The Patagonia Better Sweater will keep you toasty on the inside and outside with knitted fleece and fabrics. With 16 different colors of fleece to choose from and the approaching winter coming up, this is a great item for anyone.
Nike Air Max 270 $150
Nike developed a shoe that revolutionized the comfort and performance levels for athletes. The wide array of colors along with the added comfort of the large soles and soft fabric padding makes this a great option for new attire.
Apple AirPods $160-200
With Apple’s seamless connection between their devices, AirPods can connect to your iPhone, Macbook or iPod. They offer all-day battery life with rechargeable cases. Their studio sound system makes listening to music, podcasts, YouTube videos or anything else even better.
Sony Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones $350
Finding time to relax and take time for ourselves can be hard when there are so many distractions around us. The Sony Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones allow you to lose yourself into the silence, and are extremely comfortable to wear. They also work well as a headset for making calls, which is helpful for students who are on Zoom for most of the day.
Capital Grille gift card $50 – 200
Everyone deserves to be treated like a king or queen sometimes. When you go to Capital Grille, you definitely will be. Although the restaurant itself is pricey, the experience is amazing. They offer lots of dishes like their amazing dry-aged steaks and hand-crafted sides. They have two locations in the Boston area. They are open for outdoor and indoor dining with all state and CDC-mandated COVID-19 safety precautions.
Starbucks gift card $5 – 100
How nice it would be on a cold winter day to enjoy a warm coffee with a chocolate chip cookie. Starbucks will help ease the tensions and cold weather coming up for us and giving a gift card from them to someone you love will ensure their happiness.
