I LOVE shopping for gifts for others. I take great pride in choosing the gift that I think the receiver will appreciate. I want my gift to show that I’ve been listening, I care about them, and I took the time to choose this gift especially for them.

If you have ever heard of the book The 5 Love Languagesby Gary Chapman, then I bet you would know my love language is gifts. So, it is natural that I choose to express that as well.

If you are looking for something different to give to those you love, check out this great list of items below. Some of these items contain links to Amazon. If you choose to purchase the item through these links, I may receive a small commission without you having to pay a cent more for your purchase. Thanks for supporting SincerelyStacie.com.

For the Light Sleeper in Your House

Sleep Phones

I received these as a gift for my birthday and really like them for travel or when my husband wants to watch TV before falling asleep. You can use the app to play their “white noise” music or connect to your music app and play your music of choice or listen to a book. No worrying about your earbuds falling out of your ear. You just wear this soft headband with the earpieces inside the band.

I really like them and have the wired sleep phones. The cord is long enough that I can have my phone on the end table near my bed and still connect without any issues. There is a wireless version —- but it is much more expensive.

For a Friend, Teacher, Coach, Neighbor

Shop Etsy! Etsy is like a farmer’s market right on your computer anytime you want. You can find anything from jewelry to t-shirts to tote bags to hand-kitted scarves to furniture and I could go on and on. Basing your search either on your local area and supporting someone local to having someone in Portugal sending you a painting is absolutely amazing. I have ordered numerous items for myself as well as gifts for others through Etsy and have been thrilled with each purchase.

For the Device-Addicted Teenager


Every member of our family has one of these. They come in different sizes with a one device charge at a time or up to five. They come in multiple color choices and are a life-saver when you are sitting at an all day competition with no way to charge your phone. I keep this in my purse at all times for whenever I need a charge away from a power source.

For the Grill Master

Cave Tools has multiple options for that person who loves to grill.  I am especially fond of their Skewer Set as well as their Smoker Box. This is a great company that sells quality products. To see all of their products, click HERE.

For Your Snarky Friend

A mug, tote, or a set of note cards from Emily McDowell Studio. I just love her cards and have sent several to just the right person.

For Your Mom, Sister, Friend, Wife, Girlfriend….

Flowers. Last year my husband gifted me with a floral bouquet every single month. He arranged it with our local florist and every month a new bouquet is delivered and usually has a theme connected to the nearest holiday or season. These have brought me so much joy and I have looked forward to them each month. If you don’t want to have flowers delivered, put a reminder in your phone/calendar to stop at the floral shop or grocery store or target and grab a small bouquet. I promise it will be just as wonderful a gift.

For a college student or newly married couple

These Pyrex dishes can go from fridge to microwave to oven. They don’t stain or leave behind marks from being in the microwave. You don’t have to worry about plastic issues. They look nice all stacked in your cupboard. I’ve been slowly switching over to Pyrex and have been watching sales at the discount and department stores. They are worth the price! I started with THIS SET, and then continued to build from there.

For the Child in Your Life

Legos. You can NEVER go wrong with Legos. Our family has always loved them. They seem to have a set for every personality and interest. You can see them all at Lego.com

For the Reader in Your Life

Of course,  I can’t offer a gift guide without suggesting BOOKS as a gift. If you are unsure of what book to give, you can give a book store gift card that will allow them to choose. You can also gift a particular book as a Kindle book if your loved one prefers eBooks. If you want to choose a book that hasn’t even come out yet, you can pre-order it on Amazon and print out the receipt, having it delivered to your recipient on the day it comes out. You can see the Top 100 Paid Books on Amazon, HERE.  

For the Person Who Has Everything

Donating to a charity in their honor. My mom purchases an animal in honor of our family each year through Heifer International. For example, a hive of bees. We all get a certificate that says we have purchased bees for a family in need in a particular country. You can also purchase items from World Vision. I won this beautiful bracelet from World Vision through a giveaway on Booking Mama. Purchasing this bracelet helps the woman who made it and also gives you something to wrap up. Choosing an organization that means something to you such as a local Hospice, a local Food Bank, or a Women’s Shelter and sending a donation in honor of someone is such a meaningful gift as well.

    GREAT list, Stacie! I thought my shopping was done, but there's an item or two here I think I need to grab. Gifts speak my love languages too. And of course I especially like your last suggestions. Glad you included that here.
