It’s Not Too Late to Get Yourself the Gifts You Actually Wanted for the Holidays
Did Santa forget to put something under your tree this year? What gives? C’mon, you totally nailed your family portrait, you gave the best secret Santa gifts and no one can even touch your Christmas cupcake game. You were definitely on the nice list. Well, the day may be over, but it’s not too late to get what you really want. Ring in the new year the right way — by treating yourself to one of these five gifts that are also great deals. You know you deserve it.
1. Amazon Tap ($130): Amazon Tap is like Echo’s little sister. Where Alexa is constantly listening for you to call out to her on the Echo, with Tap you actually need to tap the unit (get it?) to turn it on. It’s a super portable speaker with Alexa built in to play music, order pizza or read you the news. It’ll even stream music from your phone via Bluetooth. There’s really almost nothing this little powerhouse can’t do!
2. Amazon Fire HD 10 ($230): If you’ve been dreaming about a tablet but want something more affordable, jump on this deal. The Fire HD 10 is thinnest tablet Amazon has to offer, and is even Alexa enabled so you tell it to play all the music, games and movies you want without having to search for them.
3. PLAY! by Sephora ($10) : If your inner beauty queen wasn’t satisfied with this year’s haul, it’s time to PLAY! Everyone knows about Birchbox, but did you know the magical wonderland that is Sephora also has a similar offering? Each month you receive six drool-worthy samples in a collectible bag, a PLAY! BOOK of tips and tricks, and a PLAY! PASS for in-store learning. Glam it up, girl!
4. TaoTronics Bluetooth Wireless Earphones ($26): We know you’re planning on getting back into shape once the new year hits, and these sleek earbuds are going to make your workouts so much more enjoyable. They’re not only wireless, they’re also noise-cancelling. So the obnoxious grunter next to you at the weight bench won’t break your stride.
5. ZAC Zac Posen Eartha Iconic ($495): You deserve a little luxury. Treat yourself to this drool-worthy confection of buttery-soft leather because you know you’re worth it. This bag will instantly dress up any outfit and brighten your day at the same time. It’s the gift that hugs you back.
