That's why I can not keep these amazing products all by myself! So, I share my personal choices for the holiday season. These last minute gift ideas are unique and elegant and made by wonderful online companies – which means they are just one click. Here are some of my favorites.
1. the gift: MasterClass All-Access
Price: $ 180
Why I love her: Who does not want to learn cooking from Gordon Ramsay, basketball from Stephen Carey or acting from Samuel L. Jackson? The MasterClass All-Access Pass gives you access to amazing lessons from the highest minds in every field – business, arts, sports, etc. I think curiosity is an important feature of the entrepreneur, and this is the perfect gift for those who want to enhance their learning. Of course there is a course for everyone.
2. the gift: Caavo Control Center World Remote
Price: $ 99.95
Why I love her: We have all seen how tools, play stations and cable boxes can spoil the living room.

Of the busy family or TV fans on your list.
3. the gift: Lucky Fish
Price: $ 30
Why I love her: As a busy businessman, staying healthy on the go is a big challenge for me. That's why I invested in the Lucky Iron Fish when I saw it lit up Dragon den. Small fish is a safe and easy way to add iron to your meal – all you have to do is place it in boiling liquid during cooking (water, broth, sauce, curry, etc.). It also lasts for five years, making it a much better investment than iron supplements for one time.
My vegetarian friends swear by this product, but it's also great for athletes, pregnant women, or anyone struggling with anemia. Best of all, the company has a tremendous social impact: thanks to the "buy one, give one" model, more than 45,000 lucky fish have been donated to people in need. What more could you ask for?
4. the gift: Anything from iHeartDogs.com
Why I love her: iHeartDogs.com is my go to the site to get gifts for dogs and dog lovers alike. Products include for dog leashes, toys, treats … Oh, some snazzy clothes for these human beings dogs, of course! In addition, when you shop at iHeartDogs, the company offers a donation that supports great causes for animals and people (check out its amazing social impact here).

Why I love her: Nice smile goes a long way to trust someone. If a member of your family complains of white whites, take a hint and make sure you are a Candid. Its technology offers a customized, orthodontic alignment of teeth – using clear and attractive matching tools delivered directly to your door. If you have a teenager who is not keen on girdles, or a husband who is desperate to straighten the crooked tooth, this may be the best gift for the holiday.

The company offers a high-quality, realistic-looking shampoo (you fooled a lot of people!) That lasts for eight to 18 days, so you can get the benefits of a tattoo look without sticking to ink. It's a great way to test if you love tattoos before you decide something always. It's also a great way to combine your look with different moods and events.

Everything there is in this reliable powder formula. I am very skeptical when it comes to health products, but this is one I personally use and it is definitely suggested, especially for busy people who are looking to improve their health game.
8. the gift: Adventure in a box of Hunt
Price: from $ 34

Every month, they send an exciting murder to subscribers. The monthly strategy works to gather all the links together and create an exciting narrative, so the recipient will always be enthusiastic about that box below. As one reviewer said, "If you like to read about or watch the programs with serial killers and a real crime, that's what you prefer."
9. the gift: Printed pants from TheElephantPants.com

When you buy a pair of unique and colorful pants from The Elephantpants, the company brings back popular institutions that help save and support these nice giants. At present, $ 1 is donated from each commodity sold to Space For Giants, an organization that helps secure habitat and prevent illegal fishing in Africa. And yes, the pants are just as comfortable as they look online!
10. Gift: High quality sports reports from Athlete
Price: from $ 3.99 per month
Why I love her: If you think the quality of sports articles has decreased, it may be because of that too much High-quality sports writers have left and work for traditional outlets Athlete. This subscription app is dedicated to a great sports press and provides a great experience for readers from start to finish: it has a clean interface, an active commentary section, and custom article analytics based on your team's preferences. As a great sports fan myself (go, Raptors!), I can not imagine reading about a game last night any other way. Trust me, the sports fan in your life will be very excited to get a subscription.

The company sends an elegant watch from a famous brand to subscribers every month, and the unsold inventory of the best brands matches the preferences of your preferred style. There are a lot of collectors in my family, so this company definitely sees my eyes in the holiday season.
14. Gift: Aesthetic Revolution (ASRV) Sportswear
Why I love her: As a person with an active lifestyle, I have learned (often in the hard way!) That high-quality equipment and clothing make a big difference to the gym. Currently, the current favorite brand of high quality sports wear is the aesthetic revolution. Its products have many technology-friendly features, from geograms with sealed pockets to your phone to a sturdy jacket with hidden zippers.

These products are definitely at the top of my list for anyone enjoying running, sports or any other physical activity.
15. Gift: Portable treadmill
Price: $ 999.00
Why I love her: One of the biggest downsides to owning a running device is the amount of space you can take at home, which is why I totally love Treadly. The patented patent-pending solution goes away and moves easily, which means you can store it anywhere and use it anywhere you have ground space. Using a Treadly device, I can work in front of the living room TV in the office, and in my bedroom – all in one day. I have not seen a more suitable solution solution, which is why I had to include this product in this guide.
