The Five Minute Journal

Both in terms of achievement and actual measurable, quantifiable results,” says New York Times Bestselling Author Tim Ferriss. With an endorsement like that, it’s easy to see how a simple journal can have such a big impact. If you know someone who doesn’t ever have much time, this could be the perfect gift.

The Alchemist

the-alchemist-book

The Alchemist is the quintessential journey of self-discovery in mesmerizing novel form. There’s a reason why it’s one of the most popular books of all time: it’s something everyone can identify with.

That’s why it’s one of those books that everyone should read, especially for someone at a crossroads or who just haven’t figured out what they want to do with their life yet.

The Power of Now

the-power-of-now

Since being revealed as one of Oprah’s favorite books years ago, Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now has become one of the best-selling books on the subject of non-religious spiritual practice.

For anyone who is looking for a great introduction to spiritual practice or the bigger picture behind meditation, you can’t go wrong with Tolle’s classic.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Mark Manson’s instant classic is a chorus on stepping outside yourself to realize a better life in the most unconventional sense. It’s a slap in the face to much of classical self-help literature but in all the right ways.

“There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter,” according to the book description. This is the perfect book for anyone who hates self-help but really needs it.

Tequila Mockingbird

tequila-mockingbird

A Goodreads Choice Award winner, Tequila Mockingbird is the most peculiar combination of drink recipe book and literary self-indulgence. If you know someone who loves bartending, a good drink, or is obsessed with literature, this book will hit all the right notes.

Cactus Humidifier

cactus-humidifer

Most people aren’t aware of the unhealthy particles swimming around in their air, including mold and bacteria that builds up over time. This build-up of nasty particles can affect the breathable air quality in your office and home, something that a small humidifier such as this is perfect for counterbalancing.

Plus, it’s super convenient, having the ability to plug straight into your computer. Did we mention it’s incredibly cute?

Lavender Silk Eye Pillow

sleeping-mask

What’s better than an eye pillow to help you get the best sleep of your life? An eye pillow that’s lavender scented (which has been shown in studies to promote relaxation) and helps you get the best sleep of your life. If you know someone who could use some better Zzz’s (who doesn’t?), this is a great gift under $30.

Avocado Slicer

avocado-slicer

You remember those old school infomercials, either with the tall guy with the English accent of the loud American guy with the pitch black beard? They always seemed to be presenting products that made you want to press your hands against your face and go, “why didn’t I think of that?!” This is one of those products. If you know someone who loves avocado, you can’t go wrong with this one.

How to Win Friends and Influence People

how-to-win-friends-book

There are some books that absolutely everyone should read. HWFIP is one of those books.

That’s because, no matter what you do for a living, what your goals are, and how you swing you want and need to talk to people to do your thing. Carnegie’s classic on becoming better with people is one of the best books ever written on the subject and probably the simplest and most accessible, which makes it great for just about anyone.

Kate Spade ‘Heart of Gold’ Bracelet

Somehow, this Kate Spade bracelet is under $30. I think someone mistyped this one, so you might want to jump on it before it’s gone. It’s a simple but elegant bangle with a beautiful pale gold finish. But what makes it special is it’s engraving, “Our classic gold and enamel bangles celebrate some of our favorites turns of phrase, delicately printed inside.” In this case, the words “Heart of Gold” are printed on the inside of the bangle.

What to Say When You Talk to Yourself

what-to-say

Nearly ten years ago, I read Dr. Shad Helmstetter’s What to Say When You Talk to Yourself. Don’t let the funny title put you off, this is an amazing book, one of the best for helping overcome the negative bits of the inner dialogue.

Plus, it remains relatively unknown compared to the other self-improvement juggernauts such as the above mentioned How to Win Friends and Influence People, so it makes for a great gift.

3DFitBud Simple Step Counter

3d-fit-bud

Ever tried counting your steps with an app? They’re convenient but not entirely accurate. Plus, having to open your phone just to adjust your settings every time you walk or run is a pain. Sure, some apps run in the background but this 3DFitBud does it all with less hassle and 100% accuracy.

Scalp Massager

Yes, a scalp massager. It’s not as crazy as it sounds, though. According to the manufacturers, this spindly little whisk think helps reduce stress and promotes relaxation, “Head scratchers and scalp massage can quickly, and effectively relax stressed muscles and may even relieve aches and pains, especially headaches and migraines.” If you know someone who has it rough or just finds it difficult to relax and unwind, you could make this the most unexpectedly pleasant gift they get all year.
