Why settle for raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens when you can ask the That’s Good HR staff to recommend their favorite things? With all due respect to Julie Andrews, we think there’s more out there than bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. If holiday shopping is causing you stress, take a deep breath, and check out our Favorite Things Holiday Gift Guide! We have a list of special treats you can purchase online or at Indianapolis area locations.

Give light and ambiance

Candlelight adds another layer of indulgence to any event, whether you’re entertaining a houseful of guests or soaking in a bubble bath after the party. We’re especially partial to WoodWick®️ candles that offer fragrance combinations and the crackle of a campfire to delight your senses.

Put the pieces together with this gift

There’s something special about sitting down with a good puzzle. You put away the screens, clear your mind, and focus on creating something beautiful out of what looks like a mess of pieces. Vintage Charm in Zionsville has this Merry Moonlight Skaters Puzzle that will put you in the mood for a quiet evening with the people you love.

A gift for your favorite teen (or pre-teen)

Give young friends and family members something to look forward to each month with an Ipsy beauty subscription. Each month, they’ll receive a set of personalized beauty products to help them experiment with different beauty brands and discover what they love.

Sudsy surprise gifts

This time, we’re talking about laundry detergent. Now, hear us out. Buff City Soap, with locations all over town, has natural laundry soap that is infused with fragrance. Choose from the regular line-up and give the gift of clean clothes with simple ingredients and no harsh chemicals.

Get personal with a birthstone necklace

Your mom would love this custom birthstone necklace from Etsy. Or, gift one to each of your BFFs with everyone’s stones, to celebrate the friend group. Include the grandkids’ stones, or honor your furry kids with this unique gift.

Speaking of furry kids…

At That’s Good HR, we love our animals. But even the best girl and boy can leave a furry mess behind when they’ve been crashing on the couch. Keep a Chom Chom Roller nearby to take the “fur” out of “furniture.”

Sock it to them

When you buy a pair of Bombas socks, you’re buying a gift for your recipient as well as someone you may never meet. Bombas matches each purchase with a donation to their giving partners, meaning you’re keeping toes warm all over the world.

Smell good with a perfume sample gift set

The Sephora favorites perfume set lets the recipient try several scents without committing to a full-size purchase. Add a gift card so they can treat themselves once they’re chosen their own favorite!

Keep your sweet treats safe

Who’s tried to tote pretty cupcakes in a flimsy gift box? Your favorite baker will appreciate the gift of a Progressive Prepworks Blue Cupcake Carrier. This one has two removable tiers that can hold up to 24 cupcakes. Or, remove the tiers and you have a safe tote for a layer cake.

Things that sparkle

Are you looking for an affordable jewelry gift that looks sophisticated and glamorous? How about the christina kober diamond dusted collection? Check out their assortment of rings, necklaces and earrings.

Hands-on gifts

 Indiana’s harsh winter temperature swings and dry weather can leave your hands feeling like sandpaper. Treat your favorite person to Aveda’s hand relief™️ moisturizing cream, a luxuriously rich hand cream that leaves hands feeling soft and smooth.

Invigorate their mornings with lavender and peppermint

C.O. Bigelow’s lavender peppermint line makes you want to get out of bed and into the shower for this “scentsational” combination. We like the shower gel and the body lotion personally.

A gift from across the pond

Even if they don’t have royal blood, they’ll feel positively regal when you gift them something from Fortnum’s Across the Pond. Tea? Biscuits? Hampers full of food and wine? We want to be on your holiday list!

That’s Good HR hopes our favorite things helped with the holiday stress of gift giving. We would be remiss if we didn’t remind you that hiring never takes a holiday, and we are here to help with hiring stress as well.
