The holiday season is approaching us quickly, meaning that it is also the season of giving to those we love. Our friends and family give up their time to open up their homes to celebrate one of the most wonderful times of the year and the best thing to say thank you is a housewarming gift. These items not only will be a fan favorite at a Secret Santa party, but also are extremely affordable, especially if you happen to be attending multiple gatherings. The best gift is to make someone else's day with a personal handpicked gift and here are some of the best gifts to do so:

1. Capri Blue candle

The Capri Blue Jar Candle is a great addition for a holiday gathering. It lights up a room with its amazing scent and beautifully designed jar. It is sold in multiple different scents and found at Anthropologie for only $30.00. Yes, it is hard to purchase candles at times because everyone has a different taste in scents, but I can guarantee you that you will not go wrong with any scent you choose!

2. Cheeseboard

Wine is one of the most gifted items during the holiday season because everybody loves wine and it always spices up the mood. What's even better is having a monogrammed tote to carry your wine around in! No one likes just carrying a single bottle alone, we always feel as though we have to have it in a bag when we walk into a party. This bag is a great investment that anyone would enjoy having. Only $59.99 for both at Harry & David.

5. Oversized cozy throw blanket

We all love adding new home decor to our homes. A sweet, simple touch to someone's home is signage.

Have you noticed that you're drinking a lot more than you used to during the Pandemic? You're not alone.

I too in recent weeks have noticed that I'm drinking more than normal, and earlier in the day. I've started having a glass of wine with lunch a few days a week, something I never used to do. Although, a recent Odyssey survey shows that most Americans are starting to drink between 4 and 8 pm.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.

NBC

I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
