Gifts for someone who could use a little extra cheer this holiday season

Well, 2020 and 2021 have been something of an emotional rollercoaster, to say the very least. One thing the past year and a half seems to have given us? A renewed interest in finding joy, developing hobbies, and sharpening our priorities to cope with a whole lot of stress.

If you’d like to bring some unabashed cheer and curiosity to a loved one who really needs it this season, look no further. Here are some gift ideas so feel-good, so full of whimsy, they’ll bring out your inner kid.

You might think we confused this list with “what to get your kids” but don’t worry. We did not. BeSpoke Plush offers three options: submit a drawing, a sketched design idea, or even a selfie, and their designers will transform it into a real-life huggable toy. If you need a gift full of TLC, these one-of-a-kind plushes could be the key. SRP: $109

Organic DIY Bath Bombs

Sometimes the best pick-me-up is a night of relaxation. Draw a bath and make your own organic bath bombs with dried lavender, chamomile, and rose petals. Michael Wiesel’s kit has all the tools you need to mold 16 natural bath bombs and also comes with seeds you can plant to make more. SRP: $25

The Instax Mini Link Smartphone Printer was wildly successful, but customers had one request: a wider print for larger images. Now, you can print directly from your smartphone on film 86-millimeters by 108-millimeters within twelve seconds. In colors Ash White and Mocha Gray, The Link WIDE also has a new printing mode that automatically enhances the vibrancy in your image, and allows you to print Instax images with a QR code leading to anything you want. SRP: $150

Waterproof GoPro

For the adventurer that needs an extra push to get out there and find beauty in the world again, the waterproof HERO 10 GoPro is a tool for quenching (or rediscovering) wanderlust. It boasts a 5.3k frame rate and a HyperSmooth 4.0 video stabilizer to eliminate any shakiness. You can dive to 33 feet underwater without damaging the camera and just a few days ago, GoPro released new firmware. It includes three new Video Performance modes, one of which is the Tripod/Stationary Video IX mode, which keeps the camera cool. This updated traveler’s camera is a pretty good reason to step outside. SRP: $400

People are investing so much more thought into how they craft their space at home lately. So why not make home feel a little bit more like a childhood treehouse? This cotton rope hammock, made of breathable polyester and cotton, has a handy pocket where you can store a book or a drink, and is suitable for indoor or outdoor relaxation. SRP: $50
