Holiday shopping can be stressful. We know that making time for gift shopping between work and life is tricky, so we’ve put together a list to make your buying experience easier this year. Each item on this list comes from our favorite brands (that also happen to be Amperity customers) and come highly recommended by members of our team.
I would gift a roundtrip ticket to Hawaii from Alaska Airlines for people to enjoy sunshine and the most stunning beaches in the USA. We have had a tumultuous past few years and people just need a break from life to enjoy all the amazing marine life. I’m a diver and Hawaii has lots of marine diversity, offers night dives and even the chance to snorkel with manta rays on the Big Island.

Patagonia | Men's Lightweight Synchilla® Snap-T® Fleece Pullover
The Patagonia Lightweight Snap-T Pullover so that people can enjoy the warmer winter days more comfortably, is my recommendation. I own many pullovers for the Seattleseasons, and my Patagonia has become my favorite because of its lightweight materials and warm interior. Whether you are adventuring through the forests or simply taking your pets for a walk on a rainy day, this jacket has got you covered.

Forever 21 | Corduroy Button-up Shacket
I am a proud tia to two beautiful teenage nieces who love to borrow my clothes. This holiday season, I'll begin taking ownership of my closet while gifting them some stylish pieces from Forever 21! I love this super-soft shacket (combination of shirt and jacket) — it’s cute and goes with everything.

DICK's Sporting Goods | TopFlite XL 13-Piece Complete Golf Set
This golf set is perfect for someone looking to get into the game of golf. Full sets (and individual clubs) are often very expensive, so getting every club you need at an affordable price is a great way to start playing. I purchased a set of TopFlite starter clubs like this years ago when I first started playing and was very impressed. Unfortunately, they did not make me a better golfer. Oh well.

Planet Fitness | Black Card Membership
Planet Fitness Black Card membership with a free personal training coach included is a great gift. Because of COVID-19, we had a few years of outdoor restrictions, which had a huge impact on my health and exercise routine.

Kendra Scott | Elisa Gold Pendant Necklace in Rose Quartz
A beautiful, budget-friendly necklace for everyday wear. The Elisa Gold Pendant Necklace can be styled on its own or layered with any of the stunning necklaces found from the Kendra Scott collection. The Elisa Gold Pendant comes in 25+ stone options that any special person in your life would love. Personally, I love The Elisa in the rose quartz, a symbol of unconditional love. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer or gift to give this holiday season!

Columbia Sportswear | Men's Powder Lite Hooded Insulated Jacket
Winter is coming and the best way to prepare is with this warm and water-resistant jacket that brings the heat. It comes in nine different colors, so you’ll definitely find something you like that keeps you dry, and protected.

Brooks Running | Carbonite Long Sleeve
The Run Visible collection from Brooks is my go-to for early morning or late-night runs. In particular, the Carbonite Long Sleeve has been especially crucial as the days get shorter and colder in Seattle. It’s the warmest running long sleeve I own, plus I can see the reflective strips lighting up when I pass by headlights, so I know I’m being seen. It’s truly a runner must-have.
