10 Easy Holiday Gifts for Everyone in Your Life

by Ari Takata-Vasquez

It's less than two weeks until Christmas and if you're like me you haven't even started writing your shopping list. But not to fret, we've put together a list of 10 easy last minute gifts! And, to make it even sweeter, these items (just like everything else at Viscera) are American-made. Don't worry procrastinators, we have gift wrapping, too! 

public supply notebooks are great holiday gifts
For the Philanthropist: Public Supply Notebooks  

Public Supply notebooks aren't just practical easy gifts, they help a great cause. 25% of all profits are donated to public schools in New York to help fund arts education. Give the gift of philanthropy this season. 


leather dog leashes for holiday gifts

For the dog lover: Limited Edition Dog Leashes

To say we love dogs at Viscera is an understatement. We're obsessed, need them in our lives and like them better than just about anything else (all of our adoption events are basically just excused to play with pit bulls). Give the dog-obsessed person in your life a limited edition leather dog leash. All the proceeds for the dog leashes go to Good-Newz Pittie Pup Rescue, a local rescue that saves pit bulls! 


 onyx exchange candles are great holiday gifts and american-made

The Zen-ist: Onyx Exchange Candles 

Onyx exchange candles aren't only for the ladies. With scents like Americano, Bourbon, and Ember even the burliest of men can get down with these candles. The holidays can be stressful, so give the gift of relaxation and calm. Even better yet, these soy-candles are environmentally friendly.


Triblend basics are soft comfortable and great holiday gifts

The Homebody: Triblend Basics

Who doesn't love spending their Sundays lounging around the house in PJs? Do it in style with Viscera super soft basics. Our favorite is the triblend fleece hoodie that's ultra soft and comfortable plus washes amazingly well (just in-case you're like us and you're life is a string of incidences where you spill food on yourself). 

melange perfumes are great gifts for the travelers during the holidays
The Jet-Setter: Melange Roll On Perfume 

When traveling, the comforts of home mean so much when you're going to unfamiliar hotels and on long flights. Bring a little of that comfort with you with the Melange roll on perfume. These little viles of freshness are TSA-friendly and pack easily in a purse of brief case day-to-day. No.15 in particular is woodsy, warm and best of all unisex! With notes of musk and cedar, it's the perfect scent for this season.


grey goods pouch made in portland and great holiday gift for artists
The Artist: Grey Goods Pencil Pouch

Have an artist friend who's basically always leaving writing utensils around? Help them keep their goods stashed away stylishly with the grey goods marble canvas pencil pouch. The marble canvas is modern and with leather detailing made to last. 


rose borden photography perfect gifts for the art lover during the holidays

The Art Lover: Rose Borden Metal or matted prints

For your go-to gallery buddy give the gift of art. Rose Borden's photography is sculptural, abstract and best of all black and white. The art-enthusiast would love getting one of these pieces for Christmas. 

misanthrope for the androgenous fashion daredevil

The Fashion Daredevil: Misanthrope Solid Tank

Only for the bold. The Misanthrope tank/dress is a unisex piece that has the cleanest most sleek silhouette you've ever seen. It pairs best with Misanthrope's oversized hoodie wrap that drapes asymmetrically in just the perfect way. 


black leather minimalist belt made in usa by half moon leather

 The Minimalist: Half Moon Bay Leather Belt

Any good minimalist will tell you that fashion minimalism is the art of having fewer, better things. We've got the perfect sleek belt just for them. With all black leather and matte black hardware, it's a contemporary style that will last for years to come. 


private shopping gift certificates are great for the hard to buy for

The Impossible to Buy For: Private Shopping Appointment Gift Certificate

There's always that one person who is literally impossible to shop for. Don't worry, we even have something for them. Our private shopping appointment gift certificate gets the recipient the shop all to themselves for an hour (yes, we close down the shop just for them), complimentary wine or champagne (yes, bringing friends is encouraged), and  the cherry on top is they get $25 to spend during their appointment. Doesn't that sound like a perfect gift? We won't tell if you get one for yourself, too.


And there you have it; 10 easy gifts. Shop locally this season and skip the malls, they don't love you like we do. We're open 11am-7pm weekdays and 12-5pm on weekends. We even have shopping happy hours every Tuesday from 4-7pm to make checking-off your list fun. Have a glass of wine while you shop. 


Happy Holidays!
