My Holiday Gift Guide

November 19, 2019

< back to blog home

It’s that time of year again… to start shopping for the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. I love to support local, small businesses and my friend entrepreneurs. So I do a lot of my shopping here in West Michigan and at my favorite boutiques. But I also have a lot of e-commerce business friends and brands that I personally love, which makes shopping a breeze (as a busy mom, I do love shopping in my pajamas while watching Netflix!).  

This year, my team and I at HAPPY PR have curated our annual HAPPY Holiday Gift Guide to help you shop for just about anyone on your list. 

Throughout the month of December, I’ll be going on a TV gift guide media tour to share some of our favorite brands and top gift picks. 

We kicked things off here in Grand Rapids at WZZM 13 for a preview of some of our favorite gifts (more to come while we visit DC, Dallas, Miami, Los Angeles, and St. Louis!). 


Whether you’re traveling for the holidays or someone close to you is a frequent flyer, Away’s luggage and travel gear is a must-have for anyone on-the-go. 

Away’s products include an expandable carry on, which is water-resistant and durable, featuring extra organization and 360-degree turning wheels. 

You’ll also find products like the latitude tote, which features a removable exterior strap that attaches to your suitcase during your travels. Remove the strap and use it as a purse, and this tote will keep you looking sharp when you get to your destination. 

Away is a great brand to gift because it has a 100-day trial with free shipping and returns, so if your gift isn’t the perfect fit, your loved one can easily exchange it for a different Away product that is. 

OROS Apparel

Recently named Gear of the Year by Runner’s World, OROS Apparel was developed by a NASA scholar who wanted to implement the technology that astronauts use to survive temperatures of -450F into an everyday jacket. 

OROS jackets can withstand the coldest temperatures on the planet, but they won’t make you look and feel like a marshmallow. I love running outdoors and I’ve put their ¼ zip jacket to the test; throw on a hat and gloves and you’re good to go!

OROS is a great gift for the outdoor adventurer in your life or really anyone who lives in Michigan or the Midwest.

Coffee Cookie

Between getting the kids ready in the morning and meeting at the office, I’m constantly reheating my coffee. Not anymore, thanks to the Coffee Cookie

Invented by two MIT graduates, the Coffee Cookie sticks onto the bottom of your coffee cup and keeps it warm for TWICE AS LONG!

It’s super small so you can keep it in your purse, and it’s rechargeable. It makes the perfect stocking stuffer for the coffee-lover.

Write To Me

Write To Me has a journal for just about any occasion, from holiday and recipe journals to pregnancy and gratitude journals. You’ll also find wedding planners, calendars, list makers, dot journals, and really anything you could need to stay organized, plan for the future, and remember the present. 

They’re beautiful and made of linen, which makes them timeless and the perfect heirloom to pass down to future generations. It’s been one of my go-to gifts for a couple years now.
