You’ve made your list, have you checked it twice?

Important news, Something Splendid shoppers — you have exactly FOUR days left to decide who has been naughty and who has been nice. Orders placed before 12/18 are guaranteed to arrive before Christmas! Need help getting that last-minute shopping in? That’s what we’re here for!

Something Splendid recognizes that like all of 2020, the holidays may look a little different this year. And while we may not be gathering in person with everyone our hearts adore, there are still plenty of heartfelt, meaningful ways to enjoy a celebration. Here are three ways to ensure a good time is had on a special day:

Here are three unique, timely ways to celebrate before the end of the year:

  1. Digital readings/gifts: If our gift recipient is into alternative gifts, consider a digital tarot card reading! More and more tarot card readers have taken their services digital, allowing for safe-but-fun readings about what lies ahead! What a perfect experience-based gift and memorable gift!
  2. Virtual visiting hours: by now, we’ve all been on a Zoom meeting (or a hundred), but why not use technology to throw a big party!? Remember the times when you would encourage your friends to “just swing by anytime after X o’clock” — do the same thing on Zoom! Simply share the URL during the window of time of your choosing and get ready to say “I’m so glad to see your face!”
  3. Special deliveries + drop-offs: We may not be imbibing together, but that doesn’t mean you can’t ensure there are beverages to enjoy! Have a group drop off their drink of choice on the doorstep of the recipient and a party can still be had! Another option? Arrange the perfect menu and assign elements of the meal to different participants: wine, cocktails, table-setting, appetizer, salad, main course, etc. Everyone drops off at their scheduled time and ta-da — full and happy!

Of course, there’s something to be said for a good gift, too. Our No Blues Here is ideal for a newly-engaged guy in your life, whereas the Pamper Gift Box and the Best Wishes For the Mrs. Gift Box is great for a bride-to-be in your life. No birthday girl should be without our Birthday Girl Gift Box and our Nothing Without Brew Gift Box is perfect for any guy, for just about any occasion, big or small.

For those looking for holiday-specific gifts, here are four of our favorite curated boxes to consider.


Candy Cane Lane Gift Box: Make their holidays as sweet as candy, with this gift box. Featuring Michel Design Works’ delicious Peppermint Foaming Soap, Peppermint Voluspa candle, striped socks by Sky Outfitters, Peppermint Macaron tea by Pinky Up Tea and more, this smells-so-good box will have them smelling sweeter than candy for weeks to come.
