Today, I wanted to put together a gift guide with some interesting items that you may want to consider purchasing for your holiday gifts.

I’m personally someone who, when it comes to gift-giving, I take it seriously. I like to make sure that I’m finding interesting gifts for people that I think they’d truly like so I have put together this gift guide with, I believe, 13 items and all of these items come from Amazon. So this is going to be an Amazon gift guide. So if you’re, someone who loves Amazon and is looking for some great inspiration for gifts for this holiday season, then this video is for you below my Charmed Ones welcome back to my channel for another video, and if this is your first time with me, I Would like to say, welcome.

I’m an online entrepreneur who designs and sells productivity tools, strategies, and skills to help you manifest success with less stress. So if that sounds interesting to you, I’ll leave some links down below in the description box, where you can check out more of my work online and feel free to download some of my latest free productivity tools over at the charm shop calm. So I have 13 items on this Amazon gift guide. Not all of them are actually sitting in front of me, but I do have a bunch of them here to actually show you everything else, I’ll just pop up a picture, and I will leave links down in the description box for everything. So you can make sure to check that out as well, and I have broken up these items into three categories: there are home items, personal items and pet gifts.

Okay, because I feel like pets are very underrepresented in gift guides, and I happen to be a fur mommy and I like to give gifts to other people’s fur baby is so. I wanted to include some great things in that category as well. So let’s go ahead and jump right into the first category, which is going to be home items.

Home items gift guide

So the first item on my list is a Mile Vadik vacuum cleaner. I know I’ve talked about this time and time again, but I’ve given at my Robo vacuum as a gift to others because it is such a time and energy saver now I think this is a great gift to give because a lot of people think when they think of the Robo vacuums they think of the Roomba, which is a pretty mainstream brand name, which has a very mainstream brand name price, but the iLife version that I own is very affordable and, as I said, mine’s been lasting mate for two years. I think at this point – and you know it really is a great gift to give to someone who may not think to buy something like this for themselves. So that is number one on my list.

Number two in my gift guide is another vacuum. I know I don’t want to overwhelm you with vacuum cleaners, but this is a gift that I was recently given and I’m obsessed it is the Dyson Cyclone, stick vacuum. So, if you’ve ever seen, this cordless stick vacuum. I became aware of it because of people here on YouTube who are using it there like clean with me videos. So thank you to the YouTube community for the inspiration, but I became obsessed with this. There are a lot of different versions of this cyclone that you can get at a bunch of different price points, so just to give you the quick and dirty on it. It goes I think, from like maybe v5 v6 v. 7. 8. 9. 10. 10 is the most recent and the most expensive version of the Dyson cyclone. So you know I have the v7 animal, okay and I’ll get to what that animal means in a second. So the v7 is an older model, but it still works. Amazingly and I’ll tell you when I got this as my gift, I cleaned my entire house with it. No, I did have to let it recharge one time in the interim, but it does an amazing job because it is like a multi-tool now.

Is it gonna completely replace my robotic vacuum we will see, but I still see that the Robo vacuum has a legitimate place in my home because I can just set it and it can do big areas. And I, although the cyclone can do big areas as well, I love it for doing like a lot of detail or quick cleanup right so like if the dog trails in an of dirt or something I can clean up if something spills, I can clean that up. Very quickly – and I love the detail – things that I can clean like baseboards, you know all the corners of my house and like the ceilings and getting you to know, dust out of random areas, it’s amazing. To that end, I love that. I clean my car that too because you can detach the long hose and they come with a lot of different heads based on what your needs are. So let me talk quickly about the different options with that as well. I will link you guys specifically to the one that I have down below just so you can get an idea, but there are three levels of the Dyson cyclones across all of the different variations in terms of how new they are.

So the basic is the motorhead option which comes with whatever their basic pack of heads is, then is the animal which has some again all you’re. Adding to these levels are different heads right, so the animal has a special head that is supposed to be optimized for picking up pet hair and that’s the big vacuum that I use to like all around the house. And then the more expensive version is the absolute which has all of the heads that you could have for the cyclone. So again you could choose. You know in terms of price points, to get an older version or a newer version or to choose between the different tiers to kind of find a price point and a set that works for you or the person that you’re gifting to now.

The next items in my gift guide that I want to share with you are all home automation, gadgets.

The first is the nest which I’ve had a nest in my home for about the last year. I believe – and it is one of those automatic smart – Wi-Fi – enabled thermostats now this is an amazing gift because again it’s not always the thing that everyone thinks to buy. Like I’m a techie, and when I bought you know when we bought our house, I knew that. I was going to like deck it out with all of the gadgets, but it’s not necessarily something that, like my dad would do you know or like your grandparents would do you know. So I think it’s a really nice gift to give people because it’s very easy to use. It’s actually, I think, easier than using one of those manual thermostats, because everything can be done on your phone through an app and it’s very easy and very clear to set schedules to change the temperature and then, on top of that, you’ve got the wonderful features of It being able to like to learn your habits, and it actually helps to optimize the temperature in your home by learning more about you and your habits, and it actually will. You know help to save you money because you’re not going to be like heating or cooling a house where you know nobody’s home right? So you know that is a really awesome feature that I definitely think has saved me money with the electric bill for my home, and I just think it’s a really interesting gift that most people wouldn’t think about getting for themselves, but it also you know it actually Falls into a pretty decent price range to give as a gift to someone who you might have a bigger budget for so definitely recommend the nest.

Second-home automation gadget – I have is the August smart, lock system. Now the obvious Mart lock system actually comes with a lot of different accessories that you can pair that not only automate your home but also go into the home security arena. So, for example, the August smart lock. I have that installed on my front door and basically, it means that I never have to use a key to enter my house. I have like the keyless entry for my home because I have an app on my phone and when I leave the house, the lock automatically locks actually whenever the door shuts did automatically locks in a certain time frame and then it senses. You know dy5 senses when I’m home and unlocks the door for me, so I like not touched my house key in whatever over a year or whatever you’re a year and a half that I’ve had that installed, which is wonderful now. It also gives you the ability to remotely unlock or lock your home. So if you have someone coming to your house – and they don’t have a key, you know they can call you as a hey key unlock the door. You can unlock the door for them and you can also give people access to your house by allowing them to download the app and then giving them sorts of permissions, for you know when they’re allowed to enter your home, etc, etc. So that’s very helpful for someone if you’ve got like a pet walker – or you know like a friend or family member, that you know, does a favour for you or stopping buyers, dropping something off.

It’s really amazing, even for like house cleaners, if you’re not home, it’s a really great way to be able to control who enters your house without having to give everyone a key and, of course, as I said, the system is great because you can add on a lot of different items like a video doorbell, a different code, sort of locked, so if you want to give you know, have a lock on your door, that’s actually like a code. You could give people a four-digit er. I don’t know how many digits you can maximize on there, but I like to afford it. Maybe a ten-digit code that you could give out to people, so they can unlock your door and, of course, also video surveillance. So you know where you’re going to fall in what you’re going to be gifting to others are purchasing for yourself or for your home. This holiday season, it’s up to you, but there are a lot of options and I find that the August system is a really great reliable system that even some very big companies actually use in their home security bundles as well. If you were to purchase a home security bundle from let’s say your cable service provider, I know the one in our area also offers home security and they use AHS. Oh yes, so it’s definitely a very reliable system and I definitely recommend mine now.

The last item in the gift guide for the home items category is an essential oil diffuser many of you have asked me about where I got my marble diffuser, which is here in my office now that was a limited edition item that is no longer available. Sadly, I found an amazing version on Amazon that I also purchased for myself for my bedroom and it is a beautiful marble. It comes in white, marble or black marble, and it is a wonderful home diffuser option. Now I love diffusers because I’m definitely someone who absolutely believes in you know the power of aromatherapy number one, but definitely is something I use, but I’m also someone who you know liked their home and spaces to smell nice. So I really do have diffusers and like every major area of my home a lot of times, I think they’re safer than using candles right? So I do love and use candles, but you know if you have children or pets a diffuser with oil and water is going to be a lot safer than having candles little over your house. So I’ve recommended it also. It can be a little bit pricey. You know to have candles, you know and use them all over your home. So that is another reason why I love diffusers. So if you have someone in your life that might love candles right, you might love the diffuser too, because it’s really easy to use, and you know there are so many different, essential oils that can go along with it. You can use like you know, any essential wheel, basically in pretty much any diffuser within reason it works. So I definitely would recommend that diffuser. It is really great. I personally owned one as well and yeah, it’s another great gift to give at a really reasonable price range. Okay, now we’re moving into the personal category. So the first personal item I actually have is most of these items. I think in front of me if not all of them.

The first item that I would highly recommend is Apple. Earpods, ok and I’ve got a little sticker that I’ve put on mine just so I can differentiate my Air pod case from other Air pack cases, but I really highly recommend the Apple AirPods, I’m someone who usually has headphones or earbuds in. It took me forever to get into this, I think I purchased these earlier this year, maybe at the beginning of the year. I think I can’t even remember I’ve had them for a while now, but they’re. Definitely, that item that you might think is superfluous because of the price, but it’s definitely something I get so much use out of, and I love that initially, I thought that they would be annoying because you have to like to recharge them, but they recharge like back to Full in like 15 minutes, so it really is like a great item to have and definitely worth the money. So if you’re, someone who uses headphones a lot or someone in your life is always using headphones, especially if they’re just using the Apple earbuds, upgrade them to this, and they will definitely thank you, especially if they are in your price range right. So you know they’ll definitely thank you. I think they’re a wonderful gift to give and I have really appreciated mine, it was something that for a long time, even though I’m a tech lover I just didn’t buy for myself, so do not regret this.

The next gift on my gift guide is an iPhone case it’s the most recent iPhone case that I have been using, and so many people have given me and asked me about this anytime I go out. You know people stop me and ask me about my iPhone case. This is a felony iPhone case. That is the name of the brand and I think it’s called the Kaleidoscope. I have the iridescent version, but it comes in a lot of different versions. You may have seen it: it’s been around Instagram like forever, and I’ve been eyeing these cases forever. They come in. Like black and white, you know different colours different sorts of metallic finishes, but once I saw this iridescent I had to get it because to me it looks like honestly, it looks like angel aura quartz if you are familiar. Here’s an angel Oriol quartz, but it looks like that or like a drusy crystal. If you are familiar with that term, I love it now. It is like a definite showstopper case. It is, you know it is pointy. So it’s not something that you know. You’re gonna be able to put it in your pocket, but for someone in your life, probably like the old woman who maybe like always, has our phone and ornate end or just loves a showstopper case. I definitely love this. I think it’s beautiful and it is in a price range, that’s a little bit more expensive than your average iPhone case, but it does have really good protection and is really great quality. So I think it’s worth it. So it’s something that, as you know, might not be what someone would buy for themselves necessarily, so I think it’s like a great gift idea. Okay. The next item is a haircare product. Okay, that I have been singing these items praises forever. I just can’t imagine there ever being anything, that’s going to replace this in my life, but it is the Revlon Pro collection salon, one-step, hair, dryer, and volumizer. Now I don’t have the actual unit with me. This is just the box, but this will give you an idea of what it looks like. Oh, my gosh, you guys um I’ve been telling everybody to buy this and spoiler alert if you’re, someone that I’m buying for Christmas near a woman with a lot of hair, you’re – probably getting this for Christmas, because I want everyone to own this.

If your hair calls for it, so let me give you guys an idea. I am Arabic and Italian. I have very curly thick hair and if you are familiar with like the hair curl patterns, I am a 3b. So I have very you know very curly, hair, very thick on moving into very coarse, so I have struggled my entire life to straighten my hair and to blow on my hair. I still do not know how to do a blowout ohh. The only reason my hair was ever straight, to begin with, you guys may have been saying. Well, your hair straightener, all your videos, you know more or less it’s because I would use a hair straightener um. So I have completely replaced my hair straightener with this item because essentially I really cannot sing this thing’s praises enough. It is a hair dryer that is like a round oval brush and it takes me no joke. Do you see this hair today from taking a shower and letting it dry to about like 60 % dry? I blow out my hair in 15 minutes and then the greatest thing about this is that after my hair is dry. Actually, I blew dry, my hair straight yesterday and overnight I put my hair up in a bun and it gets curly again like kinky again from sleeping on it, I wet fully wet. I can re-blow out my hair with this, so this is amazing. I think it’s like. I don’t even remember how much I paid for it fifty to sixty dollars and you can buy it in a lot of different places.

Revlon has it as well highly recommend this gift to anyone who, like you, know, blow-dries their hair or has thick unruly hair. Literally, I know you can see my hair right now like this because of this, so I absolutely love and recommend this it’s completely taken over my haircare routine. I don’t even use my Chi hair straightener anymore, which I’ve been using since I was 16. I literally put it in the closet, because this is ten times better, quicker and better for my hair, which is amazing, so highly recommend it. This next personal item is a little bit of a metaphysical, a sort of woo-woo gift, but I have been eyeing it for the longest time, and I found one on Amazon – that I really really loved and purchased it a couple of months back. So this is a crystal water bottle. I don’t you guys, can see I’ll try to bring you a little bit closer. This is to her that I put on it, but it is a blast water bottle that has a pointed crystal inside now. I realize that this goes in you know very novelty items for a very specific person, but I really believe in the power of crystals and the power of a pension, and things like that. So for me, I just think this is a really cute water bottle and it took me forever to find something I liked because the normal brands of crystal water bottles are so expensive and I don’t always I don’t love all the crystals that they have as Options to go inside this is a rainbow fluorite, and I found this on Amazon for, like probably close to half the price of the traditional crystal water bottles, and it is so well made. So I did not lose any quality, not buying like a name-brand crystal water bottle that you might see featured in a place like Goop but yeah. I love this and yeah. I think it’s cute. It’s totally woo-woo it’s a blast, so you can put a lot of different. You know beverages in there and you know it’s a beautiful crystal obelisk, not like a point, but I guess you’d call it an obelisk and yeah, so they come in lots of different varieties with different crystals, but I will link this down below. I love it. I think it’s so cute for the woohoo people in your life. Do you know who just makes a nice little stocking stuffer gift that someone probably wouldn’t buy for themselves?

Okay, in the last item I have in the personal item front you guys – I know I’ve talked about this before I just wanted to include it because I think that this would make a really good gift guide for people. I really do, and it is my charmed life master planner, right? So this is a great gift. Again really great price range for a planner, all-in-one planner. You can get it undated, this black matte black or my 20-19 version, which is white marble. You can see, and the only difference is that this one’s dated this one’s undated and then on the month on 4 pages at this point layout the monthly tracker is different in the planners, but great gift, definitely something that would be a wonderful starter planner. For someone going to school or going to college – or you know someone who gets their first job or really everyone can own a planner, and I really believe that this planner is a wonderful all-in-one planner and it’s a great gift to give to anyone in your life Who might you know, need a planner or somebody that you think needs a planner that they don’t currently have one? And I think we all know something like that. So just wanted to include it because it is available exclusively on Amazon in the printed version, and you guys at this point should know you know where to get it if you want it printed on demand digitally on my shop, charm shop com, so that is the last item on the personal item front and finally, third and final category for gifts is the pet gifts.

Now the first gift I have here in front of me is an on-the-go pet water bottle. Now I take my little dog with my little dude Starbuck on walks all the time and I always normally try to feed him with a normal water bottle and do it. But I found this on Amazon and it is the most amazing thing I know there are so many different ways, so so many different pet owners have like those on-the-go travel cups and things like this, but this is amazing because it’s the water bottle and the feeder. You know all in one or the drink or all in one, I’m gonna show you guys how to use. This goes pretty amazing, as you can see. There’s water loaded into the bottom and there’s this little lock here, I’m gonna find lock it I’m gonna turn it upside down and you press this button up here and water feeds through okay? I don’t want to put too much because I don’t want to get water all over my desk, but then the dog can drink out of here once the dog is done, and this is the thing I love about this because it’s like a no waste to the scenario. Once the dog is done, drinking press that button again when you put the bottle vertically and the water goes back down the hole, so it really is like super useful, oh geez, okay! So I’m like not holding this straight yeah, you got a hold of it straight. That’s pretty yeah all the water you can just kind of like wiggle it around water goes back into the hole. How useful is that? And then you know you can relock it so that the button doesn’t actually release the water.

This is amazing. An amazing gift. Super you know budget-friendly, so this is a great little thing if you’re giving someone a gift – and you know they have a pet. This is an easy sort of add-on and I believe it comes in different sizes. So you could get a bigger water bottle. If you know they have a bigger dog, this is great for Starbucks he’s just like a little Yorkie or Jackie and a key or key, but it is a small breed dog and it comes in different colours too, so you can buy the colour and that works For whoever you’re gifting to love this item, and then the next gift is something it’s a little bit interesting, another sort of stocking stuffers for a price range. I know that if anyone out there has a dog has a pet and you, unfortunately, probably feel my pain, that doesn’t matter how clean you keep your dog okay whenever they go outside or in my case with my dog. If he goes to the window and the windows open he comes back smelling like outside is what I call it you smell like outside Starbucks. I tell her and it’s when the dog gets, that kind of dirty dog smell, which is really unfortunate, because you know I clean Starbucks. Every week he gets a bath with some really nice shampoo and luckily, for me, he’s a nice ship who actually does a really good job of keeping him deodorized. But he does accumulate a dog smell and he goes outside. So I’ve tried a million different doggie deodorizers, and this is the best one. This is from wool and it’s the doggie deodorant pet-friendly formula, ph-balanced, paraben, and alcohol-free eucalyptus spearmint. Now. What I think is different about this than every other deodorizer. Is that every other deodorizer for a pet? I think it really just has a perfumey smell that masks their scent and you can smell it. It smells artificial. it kind of smells nauseating. It kind of just adds. Floral to your dog’s, smelly, dog smell, but this is made with actual spearmint and eucalyptus-like oils, I believe, have been like put in here, so it really does refresh them and it truly makes them smell better and then also the scent is not overpowering. You know that the other problem with some of the doggie deodorizers is that the smell can be so strong. This has a very nice light scent and it works because it’s really like oils and ingredients that are actually freshening your dog and not just masking a smell. I tell everybody to buy this for their dogs, so I just wanted to make sure I included it in today’s gift guide because it’s a great stocking stuffer, another gift, something to buy for your own dog. Whatever I buy on Amazon, that’s the only place. I’ve never been able to find it. I think I found it in a store once and I’ve never seen it again, so I always buy it on Amazon. The last pet item I have is not in front of me: I’m going to throw up a picture for you guys it is a dog car seat. So Starbucks has, I believe it’s called the snoozer to pet lookout, and it is this beautiful dog, car seat or pet car seat. It comes in a variety of different sizes based on how big your dog is, and it’s more for smaller breed dogs, like medium to small breed dogs. It basically is a platform bed for them to lay in that helps them look out the window and secures them in their seats properly. So Starbucks has had this, for. I think since I bought my car two years ago, he has had this, he loves it. He goes right into the seat when, when we go into the car, he knows exactly what to do specifically, because when I bought my car, my old car had cloth seats. So we just kind of like last vote him into his to the seat belt with his harness, but my new car has leather seats and he, you know dogs with leather seats. I’m not really worried about him scratching the leather so much that he cannot stand up on the leather like he always slips and slides. So he really appreciates the dog pet car seat and it is beautiful. I have a beautiful black quilted version with a cream Sherpa interior, but it comes in a couple of different varieties and a couple of different sizes. So if you have multiple dogs, or multiple little babies that you want to have you know secure in a car seat, you can get different sizes, but I will leave you guys. A link down below it is a great gift. In fact, after seeing mine, my stepmother actually asked for it as a gift from someone, because her dog loves it as well. It’s just like a very beautiful car seat and keeps the dogs nice and safe and helps them look, and I just think it’s you know it’s better looking than some of the other ones out there so just wanted to add that it’s a great gift for your own or a very special fur baby in your life, so that is everything for my Amazon gift guide today. I would love to hear your recommendations for gifts. If you want to list anything down below in the comments that would be awesome, and I would love to know if there’s anything on this list, that you’re particularly interested in feel free to ask me any questions like I said all of these items, I personally Own, so I should give you some feedback if you have any questions, but I’m not like a sales are up for anything, so I can only go to so far with my helpfulness but yeah. I definitely use and love everything on this list, so I think they’re pretty good, pretty good gifts to give to others.
