Holiday Gifts that Bring Joy

Sustainable Style

Technology gifts are hotter than ever and some have thankfully become more sustainable. LifeProof now has a full line of sustainable phone cases, but with the same durability and protection we all love about them. This is the new LifeProof WAKE case which is made with over 85% of ocean-based plastic. It’s sleek in design, comes in 4 different colors and this is the best part -- when you purchase a case from LifeProof, you get to choose one of the company’s non-profit partners to receive a donation on your behalf. So it’s a gift you can feel good about giving.

Educational Fun

Educational gifting is a huge trend this year, with virtual learning challenging many parents to find ways to make learning at home fun and engaging. The GraviTrax Starter Set, for instance, is an interactive marble run and construction toy set that lets kids experiment with concepts such as gravity and magnetism, infusing play time with some fun learning. The whole family can create different tracks and work together or independently to figure out the fastest way to get your marble to the finish line, and you can add accessories (also available at Target) to take your tracks to even greater heights. GraviTrax​ is a really great hands-on toy that helps develop problem solving skills and creative thinking!

Toys for Everyone on Your List

Many retailers are finding ways to make holiday shopping easier and safer than ever before. Macy’s once again has a great selection of toys for everyone on your list and at all price points. You can find everything from classic board games, to Disney favorites like the Mandalorian and Frozen. Macy’s has also made it super easy to shop with their convenient payment and shipping options such buy online, pick up in store, and same-day delivery with DoorDash and you can always split your online purchase into 4 easy payments with Klarna.

Crazy for Crafting

With a lot more time at home, crafting gifts have become very popular. The Brother ScanNCut DX SDX85 is a great gift idea for the crafting enthusiast or someone looking for a new creative hobby. Use it for last-minute holiday cards, festive decorations, and more. This is the only series of electronic cutting machines with true auto-blade sensing technology and a built-in scanner. ScanNCut DX SDX85 has 251 built in designs, so you can get crafting right out of the box! Or you can easily transfer your own unique designs to the machine via USB or WiFi connectivity.
