It's the most! won-der-ful! timmme! of the year!
Yeah, we know life is extra super weird this year, and all this super weirdness is making the holidays stupendously strange.
We wanted to focus on putting things on our must-have list this year that will make us happy for longer than a nanosecond. All of the things on our gift ideas list are things we use if not daily then regularly. These are things we can't live without. Well, we could, but life wouldn't be as won-der-ful without them.
Anyone who gets one of the things on our gift ideas list will love you for at least a year, even if you get it for yourself. That's a guarantee!

for a reader
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
Believe it or not (but do, because I looked it up), the Kindle Paperwhite has been around since 2012. I could have sworn it was just released a few years ago, but I've never been good at estimating time anyway. The Kindle e-reader has been around longer, but the Paperwhite is its pièce de résistance.
But it's not like Amazon hasn't been updating the best e-reader (in our opinion); it's on its 10th generation version! With features like being waterproof (take it with you in the shower if ya like), up to 6 weeks of battery charge (heavy usage will decrease that a bit), and enough storage capacity to hold approximately every romance book ever written (give or take a few), the Kindle Paperwhite is once again on our list of must-haves. Visit its Amazon.com page for all the details.
For The Stylish
Ted Baker Tote Bag
This is the affordable tote bag you'll go to when you need to carry more than just a handful of your to-go stuff. Everywhere she goes, the Ted Baker Tote Bag catches the eyes of at least a few passersby. In fact, I discovered these totes by noticing a woman in a London brasserie carrying one a few years ago and asked her about it. Yeah, it sounds fancy, but I'm a simple girl who just happened to be in the right place at the right time to discover the Ted Baker Tote. Now I have a few of my own!
One big reason we love this tote is that it can be wiped down and sanitized! No need to worry about ruining your fancy leather handbag; this flashy tote is 100% cleanable with an antibacterial wipe or a simple soap and water wipe-down.

For The Comfort Connoisseur
It was about 10 years ago that I started demanding requesting that my mom shop for my annual Christmas Eve PJs from Soma. Without fail (save for one year she "forgot"), I've been adding to my stockpile of the most comfortable pajamas on the face of the whole earth.
If you're not used to caring much about your pajamas and around-the-housepants, get yourself a pair of these. I'm known for finding PJ pants for as low as $16 and surprising myself with a little shipment at my doorstep!
Don't be afraid of sticker-shock. There are Soma PJ sales all year round, and especially during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Pick out a few favorites and add them to your wish list or shopping cart. While you're at it, try a pair of my favorite Soma panties, the Embraceable Super Soft Signature Lace High Leg panties.

For The Cook
The Air Fryer is the Instant Pot of 2020. Have you noticed all of the videos and posts about people using their air fryers? I found one account on TikTok that's nothing but answering the question, "Will it fry?" Turns out, pretty much anything you want cooked will definitely come out of an air fryer tasting delicious!
Some of us Shameless Fairies have our own and live daily by them. At just around $50 for a basic air fryer, and bigger, more fancy air fryers are in the $100-120 range, they are affordable for pretty much everyone.
Watch for Black Friday deals on these babies because they will happen!
