The holiday season is in full swing, and while Kris Kringle may be an expert at checking his list twice, we can’t all be so organized. To help your holiday shopping go a little smoother this year, we’ve picked items from some of our favorite brands (that also happen to be Amperity customers) for you to pull inspiration from! Each one comes with a glowing recommendation from a member of the Amperity team.
Deckers | Hoka One Men’s Rincon 3
The Hoka Rincon 3 is the ultimate budget-friendly training and racing shoe for 5k to half marathon distances. It's light, it's nimble, it's cushioned; but most importantly, it's fast. It turns out you don't need a $250 carbon plate racing shoes to smoke Aunt Betty at this year's turkey trot. Instead, lace up the Rincons and see what you're made of.
—David Henry, Director of Product Marketing
Chicos (Soma) | Cool Nights Sleepwear
Everyone needs a good pair of cozy (and stylish) pajamas to slip into after a long day. You can’t go wrong with anything from the Soma cool nights collection. They’re the perfect gift for the hot woman (literally) in your life.
—Jeanne Jones, VP Community and Customer Marketing
Kendra Scott | Dog Tag Necklace
I have four girls of different ages that are on my gift list this year. When I casually showed my daughter the Kendra Scott mini-catalog that we received, she gushed over the new Men's collection Dog Tag necklace. I ordered one with engraving to see the quality, and was very impressed. So much so, that I’ve ordered three more for the women in my life!
—Michelle Faust, Head of Sales Enablement
DICK’S Sporting Goods | Bowflex SelectTech 552 Dumbbells
I love these Bowflex adjustable weights. They take up minimal space and are easily adjustable, so multiple folks can use them — during COVID my family actually bought four sets of these. Plus DICK's makes it so easy with their curbside pickup. That way you can avoid the crowds and keep your shopping stress-free this holiday season.
—Ron Bevan, Sales Director
Cost Plus World Market | All Across Africa Light Blue Woven Disc Wall Decor
This wall disc is the perfect addition to any blank wall. The color is subtle enough to match any theme but bold enough to stand out, making it a great statement piece! All Across Africa partners with the artisan women in Uganda who handcraft each piece, helping them save for their families futures, pay school fees, and gain access to safe housing, food, and healthcare. A wonderful gift that gives back.
—Jamie Pierce, Customer Marketing Manager
Backcountry | Black CrowsCaptis Ski
I bought these skis from Backcountry and they're absolutely incredible. A solid pair of skis that have handled everything I've thrown at them so far, from glades to powder to corduroy, and everything in between!
—Alfred Sin, Product Manager
Michaels | Color-In Gingerbread House by Creatology™ Christmas
This gift provides hours of entertainment for our young daughters. They spend time coloring the box and then playing with it, which means fun for them and quiet for me! That’s why I see it as a gift for parents and children, because independent play is priceless.
—Amy Rux, Enterprise Account Executive
Omaha Steak | Classic Butcher's Favorites
My family throws a big annual Hannukah party, and there is a ton of pressure to find new, special gifts each year, but it can be hard to come up with fresh ideas. Two years ago I got rave reviews when I gifted Omaha Steaks to a family friend who describes herself as a real "meat and potatoes" lover, and I haven't been able to top that one ever since!
—Margaret Gorin, Director, Solutions Consulting
Brooks | Draft Hybrid Glove
I love the Run Visible collection from Brooks. Their reflective strips and bright designs ease my mind when I'm running across streets before dawn or after dusk. I especially love their Run Visible gloves, which help me stay warm and be seen. They even have a mitt covering that comes on or off to block wind and rain, so I use them for both running and cycling. I can't recommend these enough for the runner on your list!
—Ira Rickman, Senior Analyst, Advanced Analytics
Patagonia | Ultralight Black Hole Mini Hip Pack
The 90s are back in style, which means a convenient, colorful fanny pack should be on everyone's wish list this year! I love this stylish and highly functional fanny pack for any activity. Pair it with a skort and some chunky sneakers to create the ultimate throwback ‘fit.
—Shannon Greulich, Deployment Consultant
Tapestry | Champagne Large Reversible Tote
This bag is the perfect gift for someone looking to add some flair to their handbag collection. As someone who’s all about function and design, this tote hits the nail on both. It’s nice and roomy, and has a festive design. 'Tis the season to celebrate, and what better way to do so than with some bubbly?
—Megan Lunde, Solutions Consultant
Johnny Was | Silk Velvet Pleated Mask
I was in my local grocery store and saw a woman with the most gorgeous velvet mask. I never do this, but I went up to this total stranger and asked where I could buy one. She said it was from Johnny Was, and I immediately went to their website to take a look. This is a great gift for anyone wanting to stay stylish and healthy this holiday season.
