2020 Holiday Gift Guide



Christmas is only a little over a week away, and if that brings a sense of fear, the Bruin is here to help. This guide is filled with many gift ideas for girlfriends, boyfriends, friends, daughters, sons, and many more. This year is quite different when it comes to Christmas, and many Christmas traditions, parties and other celebrations are put on hold. That does not mean that we have to lose the Christmas spirit, though. Here are some gift ideas to help spread the holiday cheer.

  • Doc Martens– Super comfortable, super versatile, and very popular shoes this year.

  • Blankets– You can never go wrong with a blanket. Tj Maxx and Marshalls always have many options of big comfy blankets for a reasonable price.
  • Gift Cards– Although these may not be as fun to shop for, gift cards are always a way to guarantee to get someone something they will love. For clothing lovers, Target, American Eagle, Hollister, LuluLemon and Tj Maxx are all great options. For makeup lovers, Ulta and Sephora are great places to purchase makeup. For someone who likes sports or comfy clothes, Dicks Sporting Goods, Fabletics, Nike and Under Armour are great places to get gift cards.

  • Phone Cases– There are so many different options and styles to fit anyone’s taste.
  • Jewelry– This is a perfect gift for your girlfriend or even just a friend. There are many different types to fit anyone’s style. Pandora is a great option, but it is on the more expensive side. Amazon also has great options that are a bit cheaper. Initial necklaces, princess rings and other jewelry are very popular and so meaningful.
