We’ve spoken before on the blog about the growth and opportunity in direct sales and all your friends who have begun their own business in some way over the recent years in this digital era of multi-level marketing. Now that the holidays are approaching, it’s a great time for you to support those friends or other local small businesses for thoughtful, unique gifts.
Explore a collection of gift ideas on this list of small businesses, so you can find something just right for everyone on your list! Shop small this year, or check out how can even save more money on these gifts by contacting your representative or local consultant. Despite another rough year of quarantines and pandemics, many small businesses are still standing strong, including your friends on Facebook.
There is no reason to get stuck out in long lines this year when you can support local and small businesses run by hardworking people you may even know.
In collaboration with as many small businesses I know, we have compiled our [almost] complete list of gift ideas! Who are you shopping for? There is something for every one on your list here.
For the Chefs & Bakers, New Home Owners, and Your Favorite In-Laws
Whether they’re always hosting, always cooking, or just opening gifts, treat someone to Pampered Chef goodies because who doesn’t love some Pampered Chef? Quality and unique kitchen products anyone can appreciate, and it’s only a click away!
There are some incredible tools for quick dishes, the most reliable cookware, seasonings, and even monthly recipe subscription services to keep up with meal prep goals. Pair a bottle of wine with an entertaining piece, or a jar of hot fudge with the famous Pampered Chef ice cream scoop for a simple and thoughtful gift.
For Your Friends with Style, the Ladies In Need of Pampering, and Secret Santa
One all-time hit Christmas gift in years past for me has been these convenient, simple, DIY manicured nails by Color Street! Don’t waste any more time considering the perfect gift and snag some sets of hassle-free press-on nail art designs.
Snag a few sets and combine with a nail file for a unique and fun gift she will absolutely love! For more tips on how to apply, I recommend you pop over to Jillian’s Nail Bar on Facebook and explore the styles and reviews, too!
For Fit Friends, Busy Moms, or the Whole Family
I am a proud Zyia Active Independent Rep and truly love the mission of this active lifestyle brand: to inspire and uplift by making activity a fun and essential part of life. There is a wide variety of quality items that your fit friends would love, as well as incredible versatile pieces that can be worn in the office, on the go, to sporting events, or the typical workout, and I’m sure you’d get bonus points for picking out something truly unique and one-of-a-kind through my online boutique, where we have new releases coming out every single Wednesday and inventory is always changing.
You can’t go wrong with a pair of classic light n tights from your favorite Zyia Active Independent Rep, that’s me! Runners, ladies who lift, or even those who dance, do yoga, or just “mom” it up will love the compression of these leggings that some call the magic tummy-tuck leggings, and they’ll always stay put! Fit true to size from XXS to XXXXL! The real secret here, though, is that these leggings provide an on-the-spot tummy tuck, too! These are just one of the many incredible things this boutique active lifestyle brand flaunts.
Join my royalty club on Facebook to explore our women’s, children’s, and men’s clothing; we have everything from leggings to office chinos, shorts to winter jackets, and sports bras that double as swim tops!
For the World Traveler and College Students
For the loved ones always on the go, and perhaps giving you a little anxiety traveling the world on their own, Damsel in Defense is the perfect holiday gift for peace of mind! This company offers a variety of self protection tools for travel or just the everyday. I don’t ever want to be a damsel in distress, so I’m prepared with shielded pepper spray when I walk my dog, a tactical pen when I fly off toward my next adventure, or my roadside kit always handy in my car.
For Those in Need of Pampering, Grandparents, and Hardworking Teachers
Consider a self-care kit for those who have been by your side, virtually or not, over the past year and deserve a little treat! Find Kerry, an independent rep for Perfectly Posh, on Facebook to help you craft the perfect gift set. Pair a refreshing body scrub with a handful of bath bombs, lip balm for the cold weather, and be sure to add in any of their delicious hand and body lotions!
For Your Aunt, Uncle, and the Coworkers
Have you smelt the delightful fragrant wax melts by Scentsy? If not, Tiffany’s VIP group is the best place to start! Reach out to Tiffany to learn more and get her expert help in picking the perfect scents! They have a variety of different options beyond just wax melts to give your home or a friend’s sweet smells; there is a scent for everybody!
Shop Small and Save
Now that you have found some gift ideas, we can talk about how you can save even more. Have you ever considered a virtual shop event? With the help of company representatives, like myself (Zyia Active Independent Rep), you could receive half-priced, discounted, and even free items! We can set up a virtual party for you and your friends, which is where you can earn all these rewards for your Christmas shopping?
Never heard of this before? I can walk you through it. As your Zyia Active Independent Rep, you would start by simply reaching out to me and choosing a date for your event. I’ll create the party on Facebook, then you invite your friends and family. From there, you won’t have to do anything else because I take care of it all for you! When all is said and done, you and I can touch base so I can help you use your host rewards in the most optimal way.
For example, when your party orders total $600 or more, you would receive 3 half-priced items of your choice and an additional $65 to spend on more goodies. With this, you could snag 2 high-quality leggings and a jacket at the lowest price you can get with those 50%-off coupons, and then you can use the $65 credits towards 2 bras to match those leggings, plus some accessories like our crossbody bags, backpacks, head bands, or even a set of resistance bands!
With my company, host rewards kick in with at least 3 orders and $200 total, and these rewards continue to increase; with a $2,000 total, you can actually earn a $300 gift card to use, along with the 8 half-priced items you’d get too. Now that is a great way to get your holiday shopping done on a budget! And the best part is you’ll have me as your rep, and I will be your personal (virtual!) shopping buddy and style guru. I can help you find the right sizes, right style for you, and get your order entered for you, so you can just relax, enjoy your virtual gathering, and save!
Contact me to book your own party with your favorite new Zyia Active Independent Rep, or I can also direct you to consultants for the companies discussed above!
