The What – Last Minute Gift List 2017
Our most clicked items from The What List 2017. Conveniently available on Amazon for that last minute scramble for gifts.
The Pot — Instant Pot is all the rage this year and now we know why. It’s a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker and more. We cooked dry beans in 30 minutes, hard cooked eggs, rice, and oatmeal. It’s versatile, easy to clean, and we got rid of all of our other small cooking appliances. The perfect gift for any home chef and especially if that home chef is you.
The Pillow — There are many travel pillows on the market but none like the Huzi Infinity Pillow. Double thumbs up from everyone who has used it. A must-have for any travel bug.
The Skin — Our aesthetician got us to put these textured, exfoliating, hydrating wipes by NuFace on our nightstand for when we fall into bed exhausted. We now use daily even when we do remember to wash our face. These wipes are a game changer. Glowing skin guaranteed. Ideal for men without a skincare regimen and a perfect stocking stuffer.
The Lip — Every time we wear this red we get compliments and questions: Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil by NARS. It looks stunning on everyone and is a holiday must.
The Travel — Our friend Stephanie owns an apparel business and uses this 900 Watt My Little Steamer from Joy Magnano, the QVC tycoon, in her showroom and on the road. Gets the wrinkles out nicely.
The Sling — If you’re not flying first class, upgrade yourself with this Ohderii Portable Travel Footrest. Keeps feet elevated and provides comfort on long flights.
The Book — If you’re going to gift or read only one enlightening book this year make it Onlyness. Nilofer Merchant, a featured Perennial, is a global thinker and visionary who teaches us to draw power from our successes, failures, personal history, and unique experiences in order to make our dent in the world. We were so energized and inspired by her wise book that we immediately bought copies for friends. If someone you know has been feeling stuck or humdrum about their life direction, let this book ignite their flame.
The SPF — After years of research and trial and error, our dermatologists recommend La Roche-Posay Ultra Light Fluid SPF 60, which many of our readers corroborated is the best over the counter sunscreen.
The Gut — Earlier this year we were sitting with Dave Asprey from Bulletproof and he told us about Restore, a liquid supplement that helps heal leaky gut. Leaky gut is often linked to Crohns, asthma, diabetes, eczema, depression and a host of other diseases, not to mention a belly that never gets flat no matter what you do. We are giving this to several friends whose systems need a healing boost.
The Fiction — Pachinko tops every editor’s Best Books of 2017 from The New Yorker to The Washington Post to Vogue. It’s a sweeping historical saga that follows a Korean family for four generations from Korea to Japan. Engrossing, epic, and beautifully written. I have yet to meet a person who thinks this book was just okay.
The Cure — Every 12 seconds in Japan this product sells: Cure Natural Aqua Gel. It polishes our jet-lagged skin and you can now get it stateside.
The Smile — Green tea obsessed, and tW Co-Founder, Amy Parker found a teeth whitening kit that works wonders on her sensitive teeth by Supersmile.
The Accessory —This little wonder instantly turns your smart phone into a professional camera. Makes holiday photos all the more fun.
The Gadget — The HP Sprocket is a handy little photo printer that can fit in the back pocket of your jeans. It makes a perfect gift for the Instagram-obsessed.
The Serum — We’ve been using Skin Eternal Serum since summer of last year. It’s priced under $20, all-natural, and makes skin soft and dewy.
