Top 10 gifts for the Holidays & New Year’s goals
December is finally here, and you know what that means! The weather gets cooler, everyone is making delicious hot chocolate, and most importantly, we are filled with holiday cheer! There are many special traditions, like decorating the Christmas tree, making delicious cookies, and so many more that we hold close to our hearts! This also means that we are bringing 2020 to a close and it's time that we reflect on this past year and decide what resolutions we can set for ourselves going into next year. Year 2020 has been full of surprises, and it's time that we close that chapter and prepare for something new!
This unique Holiday experience is no exception and although the Holidays can be very stressful for some, we wanted to make things a bit easier for all of you amazing Boss Babes out there who are making magical things happen this year. Today we want to share best gift ideas as well as NYE goals.
What are the best gifts for the 2020 Holiday season?
We wanted to start off with all the amazing stocking stuffers! When I think of stocking stuffers, I think of essential needs. The first and most obvious stocking stuffer for this year would be a cute and unique face mask, and luckily here at Jaxodyssey, we have a variety of different patterns that you can personalize. You’ll find a face mask for every Boss Babes you know. Plus many of our styles come with FREE matching masks!
Our second stocking stuffer that everyone will appreciate this year is a mini hand sanitizer. Trust me, I know what you're thinking. “More hand sanitizer?” but hear me out. Everyone needs one for when they are on the go and there are so many amazing scents that can elevate Christmas season with all of these yummy scents that Bath and Body Works has such as Crushed Candy Cane, Sparkling Icicles, Twisted Peppermint, and so many more!
One of my favorite things to get in my stocking is socks, but not just regular socks! I love fuzzy socks with all the cute and crazy patterns. Something about these cozy socks screams Christmas to me and are always appreciated for whenever the cold weather rolls around. Self-care is so important, especially during these stressful times. You can always add skin care products such as sheet masks, jade rollers, or some under-eye masks. These products will be super helpful and can help relieve your loved ones of some stress while also having them look their best. Now, let's move onto the main event!
Due to the current situation, many of us travel lovers could not travel as much as we would have liked this year. Luckily for you, I have found just the gift for your favorite traveler by bringing adventure to their doorstep! These unique candles from Homesick bring your vacation to you and capture the scent of a Hawaiian tropical vacation or the scent of a country you’ve never been to. There are so many to choose from!
With the temperatures dropping, I’m sure that your loved ones will appreciate a comfy sweater. We’ve got you covered! Our Mauve and Sky Blue chunky sweaters are the best gift to keep you warm for these upcoming months. They are so versatile that you can wear them with anything! You can dress them down for a casual day look or dress them up to impress all your friends and family!
Have a friend that is a homebody? Our “Brooklyn” Two-piece set is perfect for that friend that keeps it lowkey while staying fashion forward and trendy! Its four-way stretch is meant to move with your body and is super stylish. The “Brooklyn” is also one of our biodegradable and sustainable pieces! You don’t only look good but do good and feel good when purchasing this item. This set also comes with a FREE face mask. It's the best gift your friend will ever receive!
Staying on the warm and cozy side, your BFF would love a pair of cross-band fuzzy slippers (we checked!). These are the cutest house slippers and I’m sure they will be very appreciated! Who says being comfy has to be boring? These slippers will provide your best friend with style and comfort.
Any techies in your family? If yes, then they will appreciate this 3-in-1 charging stand. It’s an absolute game changer. If you know someone whose New Year’s resolution is to be organized, then this is an amazing gift that will help reduce clutter. It's also super affordable so it won’t break the bank and it comes in four colors, which means that you are sure to find the right one!
Need any accessories for your fashionista friend? We’ve got just the thing for you! Our chic “Kate” embellished rhinestone headbands have just the right amount of bling and pop of color. We have two beautiful options for you to choose from. You are guaranteed to find the one to elevate your fellow Boss Babe’s look to help them bring in the New Year! Plus, they come with FREE matching bling face masks!
Speaking of the New Year, I know that we are all looking forward to 2021! Year 2020 has been challenging but has taught us so much. As a brand this year, we have learned patience, overcome challenges, and embraced the unexpected. We really look forward to applying everything that we have learned into a New Year filled with many new opportunities. It's also important to note that although we have been able to maneuver through some obstacles, it does not mean that we are finished learning and growing.
We have a set of New Year's goals that we want to share with all our amazing Boss Babes.
- Find the silver lining during times of adversity - we could not launch our main line (launch party was canceled, Fashion Week was canceled, etc) but we persevered and launched a capsule collection at the end of the year.
- Continue to be thankful- we deeply appreciate all the wonderful boss babes who have supported us through thick and thin by purchasing our items, giving us shout outs or just sending us encouraging words. Remember that even sharing our business with others is helpful!
- Lead by example- we are a small woman owned business, we have been supporting businesses like ours and will encourage our audience to do the same. Small businesses are the bread and butter of our communities.
- Promote conscious and ethical fashion- we strive to work with sustainable materials, believe in slow fashion vs. fast fashion, and support quality over quantity.
