15 Unique Gift Ideas for the 2020-Inspired Christmas

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

It's finally about to be the holiday season, and we cannot be more happy about that simple fact! Because it's been quite a year, we are inspired by turning the heaviness of 2020 into practical and thoughtful gift ideas that reflect some of the lifestyle changes we have all had to make due to the coronavirus pandemic. Curated from small shops on Etsy, we have discovered 15 new favorites this holiday season that are affordable, useful, and high quality. From food delivery-inspired treats to face mask extras to decadent self-care goodies, we tried to think of all COVID personalities and styles to inspire you on intentional gift giving.

(And if you're looking for some classic stocking stuffer inspiration with a little bit of everything, we have an entire list board full of other Gifts Under $20 for you to peruse, too!)
