The holiday season is already upon us, and with this joyous time of year also comes a mad rush to find the best gifts to purchase for your friends and family.
As the world recovers from the supply chain crises, getting someone the perfect gift is like trying to shoot an ever-moving target. With the constant flood of new gadgets and unpredictable inventory levels, there’s a lot to consider before clicking that “buy now” button.
In previous years, shopping early proved to be the best defense in combatting the holiday shopping rush. However, supply chain disruptions and labor shortages have impacted the holiday season before it’s even begun — making the process of sorting through the sea of options that much more overwhelming.
By now, you’ve probably scoured the internet in search of the latest and greatest gift ideas only to come up short. Fortunately, we’ve got your back. Here are our top picks for the best gifts to buy this holiday season from our customer list.
1. Multi-Purpose Water Bottle
We all know one person in the group that carries a large purse or backpack wherever they go. Whether it’s a casual outing or an adventurous excursion, their bag is seemingly cluttered with the most random assortment of knick-knacks which they assure are absolutely necessary — a “Mary Poppins” bag, if you will.
With Bindle Bottle, the days of awkwardly shoving your essentials into bags are over — now you can secure everything you need in one place. On the outside, it appears as a modest water bottle. But a closer look reveals a waterproof storage compartment that lets you stash essentials, such as your wallet, ID, keys, cash, snacks, and whatever else your heart desires.
For your active, outdoorsy friends, this innovative product would make a perfect gift. The Bindle Bottle is specially designed for life on the go, fortified with a durable stainless steel build that also manages to be lightweight. The 24 oz. vacuum-insulted liquid storage ensures the carrier stays hydrated wherever they go while offering enough space to bring some necessities.
If you’re looking to be extra generous, Bindle Bottle also offers Puppy Packs for friends with furry companions they like to bring on their adventures. These Puppy Packs include Bindle’s signature water bottle with storage, an over-the-shoulder strap, and a collapsible dog bowl with an attached carabiner.
2. Stylish and Spacious Sash Bag
Similar to the previous product, the Sash Bag offers unlimited space for all your belongings in a sleek and stylish package. Created by women, this product’s unique design allows for easy storage, quick access, and even weight distribution — no matter how large or small the contents.

On the back, the product features two zippered security pockets and a built-in wallet with RFID (radio-frequency identification) protection. With a wide range of colors and styles to choose from, there’s bound to a be Sash Bag that perfectly suits your pal.
3. Versatile and Wireless Coffee Machine
For your coffee-lover friend, get ready to gift them with the most revolutionary coffee machine ever to be created. Meet the Spin Coffee Machine: perhaps the only inanimate object that has superpowers.
Starting with its sustainable design, Spin uses no disposable pods or filters — meaning less wasted product for less money. This coffee maker allows users to connect through an app, and, using Bluetooth, remotely select and brew the coffee of their choice.

Couple that with its sleek and durable stainless-steel build, and you can achieve barista-level coffee from the comfort of your home.
4. Music Accessories
Times have been tough over the past two years, and for many, music offered the only escape.

Especially with nearly every gadget for every need on the market, sorting through the vast array of gift options can seem like a daunting task.
Luckily, we’ve done the hard work for you and compiled the best gifts to help you check off every person on your list this holiday season.
5. Digital Photo Frame
For years, family photo books have been one of the most traditional and cherished gifts. It allows us to bond over memories both old and new. However, as we enter into the digital age, printing, laminating, and formatting a scrapbook of photos can seem meticulous and time-consuming.
With Loop, you can capture moments as they happen, send them straight to your loved ones, and present them on a digital picture frame — all directly from your phone.
Using the Loop app, you can connect and share photos to friends and family, where they can also add their pictures and view what’s being shared. The app also allows users to text message photos from their Loop phone number directly to your digital frame.
As far as the picture frame itself goes, Loop was made specifically with ease of use in mind. Users can sit back and let the frame automatically rotate through photos, or you can use the touch-screen to swipe from picture to picture.
Similar to a text message service, you can also “like” photos, which then sends a notification directly to the sender to let them know you received it.
