We could all splurge on ourselves this year. It’s our reward for making it through 2020. Am I right?
Everything listed here is either something I own or WISH I owned*. I started compiling the list early in the year. If I stumbled on something that caught my eye, I’d look into it further and determine if it was an item worth sharing. Many of the products are new discoveries and I think they’d make for awesome gifts!
I wasn’t sure how to organize this list. A women’s list? A men’s list? A list for family? I didn’t want to overthink it as most of these products could really be suitable for everyone. So here they are, in no particular order.
(P.S. I’ll continue to update the list up until Christmas. I may come across more fantastic products and have to share it with you all!)

Grizzly Coolers had me at “Made in the USA.” All Grizzly Hardside coolers are IGBC certified which means your food will stay safe and the animals will be as well.
