It’s the most wonderful time of year to show our loved ones how much they mean to us. Give them something unique, timeless and special that they will be talking about for years to come. Here are my top gifts for everyone on your list with my ultimate holiday gift guide 2021.

When I’m stressed, I get knots in my neck and back, as so many of us do. Instead of living in pain, I use the Theragun Elite Percussive Therapy Device. It’s intense, but it really does work like you’ve just gotten a deep tissue massage.
HIGHER DOSE INFARED SAUNA BLANKET
One of the best investments I made during the pandemic is my Infared Sauna Blanket. It’s just as effective as going to the sauna to sweat, but in the comfort of my home. It’s like a sweat meditation and workout all-in-one.
Press a button for just the right clean; not too little and not too much. SymplBrush will clean your teeth completely, in 30 seconds, without ever hurting your gums. It’s weird, but it works and it’s awesome. The gift is the complete set plus the Sympl toothpaste.

The answer is my favorite small yoga company, Sacred Yoga. They have the best mats on the market. Now, they’ve add a travel mat too! Give one today and save $10 with the code MELISSA10.
STYLISH GIFTS FOR ALL
I had the pleasure of interviewing the founder of this classic jewelry brand this summer and Gorjana is just as beautiful and timeless as her beautiful jewelry. My favorite pieces are from her Parker Collection. Pick up this chain parker ring or necklace. Everything is made to layer and won’t break the bank so you can make a gift set for that special person in your life.
This company is changing the face of luxury timepieces in the best way. Every watch is sustainably made and solar powered without sacrificing design and elegance. I love their brand story and their team. Rather than splurging on a high-end designer watch this season, please consider gifting one of these beautiful watches to someone you care about. Solios is the future!

This candle is like “old faithful” as it smells fabulous and is a classic. Give as a hostess gift or it’s perfect for a friend or your boss. You can’t go wrong with this gift!
FOR THE KITCHEN
I’ve been an OG Truff lover since my mother-in-law gifted this to me over four years ago for Christmas. It has become a kitchen staple and a favorite among my friends. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve hooked on this Truff! The white truffle is my favorite, but all of them are fantastic. Give your foodies who love a bit of spice a sample of Truff Hot Sauce. Anything else is peasant sauce. I’m looking at your sriracha…
The best dinner party gift was a sensational bottle of Zinfandel that changed my life and I realized that bottle came from a black-owned winery in Napa, Brown Estate. I’ve been a fan ever since. Buy a case and thank me later.
