10K Dollar Day's Holiday Gift Guides - 2018

10K Dollar Day - 2018 Holiday Gift Guide - Our Favorite Travel, Beauty, and Kitchen Essentials

It’s that time of the year again! Man, how this year has flown by! We all say that every year, but that doesn’t mean it feels any less true this year. We hope you all have had an incredible 2018, and that your holiday season is filled with family, friends, food, and festivities!

We are so thankful for all of you, a special shout out to our group of 10K Baes, and a BIG thank you to our Patreon supporters. We started 10K Dollar Day at the beginning of this year, with no clue where it would go or what it would be. We enjoy producing content for you, and love that you enjoy it! Here’s to another wonderful year for all of us in 2019!

We have been going through this year’s episodes, gathering our favorite memorable moments, quippy quotes, and desirable destinations for a special round-up episode to be released on the last Wednesday of the year! As we were doing that reflecting, remembering, and research, we realized we have featured some great, giftable items in our OBSESSIONS, on our WISHLIST, and in our 10K DAYS.

We decided to gather some of our favorite items for you as a gift guide of sorts for your 2018 holiday season. Scroll through to see some of our favorite travel, beauty, and kitchen essentials of 2018.

(P.S. - We like gifts too, so feel free to gift one, get one for yourself, and gift one to us ;) )

Alison Burns and Lulu Picart of 10K Dollar Day - 2018 Holiday Gift Guides

Even though the travel we do on the podcast is imaginary, the travel essentials we talk about are very much real, and are very much on our wishlist.

These Vibes High Fidelity Earplugs reduce the sound going on around you by up to 22 decibels. An obvious travel essential if you’ve ever been on a plane with 3 crying babies within earshot, or a talkative person in the middle seat who likes to lean in when they pontificate.

This fake toiletry kit by Smuggs Juggs will come in handy when you want a little extra help getting through the holiday weekends with family, without the judgment for bringing in a case of wine. Or when you want to smuggle booze onto a cruise ship, which is exactly what Alison used them for in Episode 40.

Waterproof Fanny Packs because, well, who couldn’t use a hands-free, safe storage option for their wallet and phone? From adventurers to moms to busy people, so, EVERYONE, this makes a great gift!

And finally, every traveler needs a reliable carry-on. This Samsonite Hardside 20” Carry-On Suitcase is the one Alison wished for, and then got as an early Christmas present! She loves it!

Some work for the weekend, but for those who work for their next adventure, treat them to some travel essentials this holiday season.

Lulu Picart of 10K Dollar Day - 2018 Holiday Gift Guides

For us here at 10K Dollar Day, Luxury and beauty go hand-in-hand.

The Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream Moisturizer, besides being fun to say, is so light to the touch, you barely feel like you are putting anything on!

All of us here at 10K Dollar Day wear the Maison Louis Marie No.4 “Bois de Balincourt” Perfume oil. They make it in a candle which we are totally here for.

The Elemis Lavender Repairing Face Mask is soothing and healing for all skin types. Enough said!

Lulu cannot get enough of the Pre de Provence lavender soap. It’s $7.95 and lasts for MONTHS. It makes the perfect hostess gift, thoughtful without breaking the bank!

Alison and Lulu are currently testing out Rodan+Fields Enhancement Lash Boost Serum. Only a few weeks in and we are starting to see results!

The Luna Play Plus is a silicone cleansing brush that gently exfoliates your skin, and Alison swears by it!

Nerium’s Firming Body Cream is a miracle worker for all of us that aren’t airbrushed Instagram models. Between that and Nerium’s Age-Defying Eye Cream Alison feels (and looks!) younger than ever!

So if someone on your list has a penchant for bath and beauty products, you can’t go wrong with any of these items!

Every week when we share our obsessions, and what’s made it onto our wishlist, you will often find items that make life easier. Specifically, life in the kitchen easier.

For instance, if you are as addicted to LaCroix®s as the rest of the world, you can save some serious money by making your own sparkling water at home with a SodaStream.

If you are on-the-go a lot and are trying to stay healthy, a BlenderBottle with a snap-on container is perfect for having a protein shake whenever you need! Lulu sweares by her BlenderBottle.

If you are trying to eat more vegetables, like Alison is, then a handheld veggie spiralizer is your ticket to making delicious zucchini noodles! Great way to get more Vitamin A in your diet!

And finally, if you watched the last Youtube Companion Episode, you know the comedy surrounding Alison’s wish for a frother. I mean, if you could make every morning coffee into a latte and only add a few second to your routine, wouldn’t you?

So make life a little easier, and more indulgent, by gifting someone one of our favorite kitchen gifts.

Have a wonderful holiday season!!
