Looking for a techie accessory for your friend obsessed with tech? The new Wireless Charging Stones from Eggtronic are practical AND pretty! The chargers are made from real marble and stone, and they can be used to recharge the latest smartphones, AirPods, etc. The USB cord is plugged in my laptop so I can charge my devices on the fly – and it doesn’t take very long to reach a full charge. Available in black or white marble, travertine stone, lava stone or sandstone for $49.
For the organized gal
We absolutely adore the Happy Planner and were excited to see their 2021 planners! Personally, I live by my planner… always! (That’s the Type-A in me.) The Happy Planner has numerous cute themes, and the desert and flower-themed planner below is my fave for 2021. I’m already feeling inspired and gaining a sense of wanderlust. This planner is $27.99 and features the dashboard layout, which is perfect for keeping track of your weekly tasks, errands and more.
For the foodie
I love a good charcuterie board — what millennial doesn’t?? Vermont Creamery is spreading cheese and cheer this holiday season. The cheeses and butters are consciously crafted and will come in handy for your all your holiday cooking and baking needs. Browse their recipes here. Look for these scrumptious products at your local grocery store.
For the coffee obsessed
These next items are perfect for the coffee or tea lover in your life! Starbucks always brings cute holiday items this time of year and can also make for great stocking stuffers and overall gifts. Isn’t that barista teddy bear the cutest??
We also really like these sleeves by Javasok. They’re reusable, soft and fit on a variety of cups, like below. Choose from several festive and evergreen designs. Prices range from $11.99 – $15.99, and check out Javasok’s awesome Black Friday deal this weekend.
For the furbaby mom
We just partnered with ProBiora Health for our pets here at GenPink! ProBiora Health is there for your pet’s fresh breath and good oral hygiene. The product restores the natural balance of good and bad bacteria so the breath gets better — which my dog definitely needed!
The product is really easy to use. Just sprinkle the all-natural probiotic powder on your pet’s food once daily. My pup doesn’t notice anything different during her lunch time since the powder odorless and flavorless. Get 10% off your order with the code GenPink10: https://tinyurl.com/y3bha7yn
For the work from home gal
Give the gift of support and relaxation to yourself or a friend who has been living that WFH life lately. ErgoFoam is an ergonomic under desk footrest, designed to facilitate better posture, relieve seated load, and increase circulation. Flipped over, the rest becomes a rocker, and long work hours become a chance to infuse some movement into a desk-ridden day. I honestly have been using this daily and love it! I feel immediate relief on my feet, and the foam top is super soft. ErgoFoam’s models are available in a variety of sizes and styles, and products start at $25.
For the explorer
We love the gift of experiences. Whether it’s visiting a zoo, gardens or museum, these local destinations help fill the travel void for many of us during the pandemic.
The GenPink team loves these local spots in our hometowns:
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens know how to make the holiday season so magical. This year, they’ve added the Pauline and Austin Neuhoff Christmas Village inspired by the notable Christkindlmarket. Walk around the village and shop from 12 festive retailers. You won’t want to miss the new handcrafted German-built Christmas pyramid, which measures 23-feet-tall! The Christmas Village at the Arboretum opens November 27 and runs through December 31. (This photo is similar to what you can expect to see!)
The Fort Worth Zoo in DFW was named the best zoo in the nation this year! If you’re from the area, it’s a wonderful area to visit (especially when on those mild Texas winter days!). Or put it on your bucket list for next year. :) Note: This photo was taken in 2018.
Vitruvian Lights is now open at Vitruvian Park in Addison, Texas – just north of downtown. Tour the fascinating holiday lights display on foot or via car. It’s one of the prettiest sights in Dallas with 1.5 million sparkling LED lights wrapped around 550+ trees!
‘Tis the season for holiday cheer onboard the Christmas Wine Trains hosted by the Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau. These adults-only excursions offer an escape from the hustle-and-bustle of the season inside the beautifully decorated coaches of the Grapevine Vintage Railroad. Tickets include individually portioned assorted hors d’oeuvres, two complimentary glasses of fine Texas wine served in a souvenir glass and onboard entertainment, including a DJ and Santa Claus, during the two-hour experience.
I visited Phipps when I moved to Pittsburgh last year and loved it! See a photo above from my visit last winter. The Winter Flower Show: Home for the Holidays is going on now. See whimsical, elegant and festive displays, and of course thousands of poinsettias, plus much more.
Spend a day in the wide-open galleries at CMA. From art to architecture, sculptures, photography and more, this museum is THE spot for art lovers.
There’s more to explore with the Carnegie museums! The two museums listed here are a two-for-one deal, which makes this a FAB gift for the museum fans in your life. (Read about our two visits here.) On this side of the museums, see real dinosaur fossils, mummies, mollusks, gems, and much more.
Bonus! For millennial dudes
Got a man in your life who could use a fun and practical gift? Ballwash from Ballsy will be sure to pique his interest! We love how this brand is raising awareness around men’s health issues and will give back 25% of profits from this product this season to charity partner, MOVEMBER. Each bottle also comes with a custom illustration to quickly show you how to make sure your boys below are in tip-top shape. The bottles go for $20.
