Gift Guide: Gifts You Didn’t Know You Needed (or Wanted)

Some of the products in this ultimate gift guide for her have been given to me for review purposes. Some of the products are affiliate links, meaning, if you choose to click on a link and make a purchase, I will make a small commission. And, most products on this list I paid for myself and loved them. I think you will love them too.

Sometimes I find really cool and unique products that I didn’t even know I needed (or wanted).

You know, the kind of things that once you get it you wonder how you ever did without it?!

That’s the case with this gift guide. It’s the kind of gifts that maybe your recipient wouldn’t have bought for themselves, but so love that you took the time to find them something they didn’t even know they needed (or wanted).

Here are a few of my favorite ‘Didn’t know I Needed’ gifts, but so glad I received them gift guide ideas…

Gifts You Didn’t Know You Needed (or Wanted)

The Comfy

I’m in love with The Comfy! And I’m having to fight my husband and teenage son for it. So I highly recommend getting one for every member of the family, or like me, you may have to hide it. I’m kidding. Maybe.

The Comfy

Seriously, everyone will want one. It’s perfect on a cool chilly day or night to wear while watching tv on family movie night.

The Comfy is like an oversized hoodie and a soft warm blanket married and had a child. It’s so soft and you will feel so warm and toasty wearing it.

You may remember seeing it first featured on the show Shark Tank.

And if this wasn’t enough to want your own The Comfy, they partnered with Susan G KomenĀ® and in 2019-2020, The Comfy will donate to Susan G. Komen $50,000.00 regardless of sales. 


Do you or someone on your holiday shopping list love peanut butter? I honestly don’t know how you couldn’t love peanut butter, unless you’re allergic, of course.

If you do love peanut butter you have got to try bNutty. It is a gourmet peanut butter that takes already delicious peanut butter and takes it up a level.

gift guide

Their seasonal peanut butter, Pumpkin Spice bNutty, is perfect this time of year!

They have a tasty selection of gourmet peanut butter to choose from, like Totally Toffee and Irresistible Pretzel. I guarantee you that you and/or your recipient will be happy receiving bNutty this holiday season.


The Crossrope is a great gift for anyone into fitness, but it’s also a great gift to give someone who might not be into fitness at the moment. I can use myself as an example because I have been slacking in the fitness department for a while now.


After receiving the Crossrope I became inspired to get back into a fitness routine. The Crossrope makes working out fun. Yes, walking, jogging, running, and aerobics are great exercises, but they can get boring.


The Crossrope is giving me a ‘jump’ start towards moving again. By creating interchangeable weighted ropes for added resistance and strength training it’s more than just jumping rope. It’s like jumping rope ramped up. It’s a workout that will get you results faster.

You can burn over 1,000 calories jumping rope, making it a very effective fitness regime. I love that Crossrope has an app with exercises to follow from beginners to advanced. Learn more about Crossrope here and see why it’s a gift you didn’t know you needed!

Selfie Ring Light

Everyone and their sister is doing selfies. Sometimes the lighting isn’t great and you could use a little extra lighting, especially if you want a group selfie.

gift guide

This Selfie Ring Light will brighten up all your selfies and works on any smartphone. I got mine from Amazon a couple of years ago, but this self ring light is very similar.

Neewer Ring Light Video Lighting Kit

I’ve talked about my Neewer Ring Light before because, well… it is that incredible. I cannot express to you enough how much a ring light can improve photos and videos.

This Neewer Ring Light Kit is perfect for most anyone’s video needs. I have had mine for over two years now, and use it often. As a blogger or vlogger, it is a must-have, in my opinion.

But if you like to take selfies or flat lays for Instagram, I highly recommend this ring light kit.

Customized Pillow

We may know that it’s time to toss our pillows and get a new one, but it, just like replacing your mattress, is something we don’t do as often as we should.

Headleveler goes a step beyond just getting a new pillow to lay our weary heads on at bedtime… they offer custom pillows. Pillows that fit YOU perfectly.

It’s quick and easy to customize your pillow and shipping is quick. So you will be getting better sleep in no time. Trust me, it is a gift you didn’t know you needed.

Runes & Regulations

How about a family board game? Something a little different? Runes & Regulations is for 2-4 players ages 14 an up, so it is for teenagers and not the younger kiddos.

gift guide

We play a lot of board games so adding another one like Runes & Regulations to our arsenal for family game night is a perfect gift for us.

The object of the game is to collect five mythical creatures on your lawn to win. It’s a great family board game and if you or someone on your holiday shopping list love playing games, give them Runes & Regulations.

I hope I’ve inspired you with this gift guide of gifts you might not know you needed or wanted.

I will be updating this guide over the next month to add more of my favorite things that I love and as a woman, think that you or the women in your life will love, too.
