It’s been a rough year for all of us. In the midst of the global pandemic, most of us are staying home for the holidays. It’s best to skip the lines this season, order presents online, and again, stay home.

Below are a few useful gifts to give for the holiday and beyond, to the most important person on your list: yourself.

  1. S4 Max Robovac ($429 USD). Out with the old, in with the new, applies to cleaning too. There’s been an increase in smart home technology to take care of simple tasks. For example: the S4 Max Robot Vacuum allows you to schedule clean ups by the room, day, and/or time. It makes a perfect addition to your home for the holidays.
  2. Porto’s Bakery. Skip takeout food and leave the cooking up to someone else this season or beyond.

Enjoy favorites, such as their Chocolate Chip Cookies (15 pieces for $16.99 USD) or Chicken Empanadas ($16.99).
  3. The Sleep Kit by Luna Volta ($160). Don’t wait until the new year to add a better night’s sleep to your self-care routine.
