Holiday MVPs (Most Versatile Presents)


People are spending their time a lot differently than they were two years ago. Fewer concerts and more camping trips. Less time spent at the pub and more time spent in the park. Some people are still working from home while others have gone back to the office. And as habits and hobbies evolve, so do gifting trends. This year, the most popular gifts can be used on the go, on the job or on the couch. From drinkware and bags to Bluetooth® earbuds, here are five of our favorite products for wherever the day takes you.

A Backpack That Can Do It All
Whether it’s for weekend getaways or afternoons at the office (or both), a good backpack combines a stylish look with plenty of space for a laptop, snacks and a hoody or rain jacket.
Our Pick: Herschel Retreat™ 15” Computer Backpack | 2009-02

A popular brand like Herschel makes an A+ gift for anyone. The Retreat™ Backpack is a streamlined rendition of a timeless mountaineering style, featuring a drawcord cinch closure and a pair of straps to secure the top flap.

Drinkware For Anywhere
Morning coffee, evening cocktails or weekend tailgates – it doesn’t get more versatile than insulated drinkware.
Our Pick: Sherpa 12oz Vacuum Tumbler & Slim Can Insulator | SM-6598

Two functions in one. Use it to keep coffee hot or as a slim can insulator to keep drinks cold. And it earns extra style points with a trendy matte finish.

Best Buds For Life
Workouts, virtual meetings or long flights, a good pair of Bluetooth® earbuds will definitely get a lot of use.
Our Pick: Skullcandy® Indy™ Evo True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds | 7196-13

Six hours of playback on a single charge – and a 10-minute rapid charge provides a couple hours more. Built-in touch sensors let you answer calls, change songs, adjust the volume or activate the voice assistant – all without touching your phone. On top of all that, they have an IP55 waterproof rating, making them perfect for long hikes and tough workouts.

Just In Case
Mother Nature can be unpredictable, but it’s always a good idea to have an umbrella stashed in your backpack or in the back seat.
Our Pick: 48” Auto Close Inversion Umbrella | 2050-77

An innovative umbrella that closes inside out, trapping moisture and keeping outside surfaces dry. Inversion umbrellas also make it much easier to get in and out of the car when it’s raining. And it closes automatically with the push of a button!

The Gift Of Comfort
No matter where they’re going, people love to be comfy, making cozy fleece and jackets an easy choice for the holidays.
Our Pick: Paddlecreek Roots73™ FZ Hoody| TM18138/98138

Ultra-soft sueded fleece, plus a jersey-lined hood for staying comfy and warm. It even has a hidden security pocket for keys, credit cards or cash. A must-have on chilly days.
