Don’t get caught empty-handed this holiday season when your co-workers or neighbors start passing around gifts. Keep your holiday gift closet stocked with unique finds for everyone so that no one would guess that present wasn’t wrapped with them in mind. (What? You don’t have a gift closet? The holiday gift ideas below can help you start one and get it well stocked in no time flat.)
We’ve got some incredible holiday gift ideas to help eliminate the pressure of showing up empty-handed this season. The best part? Splender members can keep their wallets and gift closets full by taking advantage of our extra cash back rewards through December 31.
Are you wondering how to pay back your handy neighbor who selflessly helped you keep your gutters clean all year and volunteered to set up your yard decorations in no time flat? If he also spends his spare time working on his classic car, then The Working Man’s Hygiene Kit ($50 at Uncommongoods.com) might be the perfect gift closet item for him. The kit was created by a mechanic who found that traditional soaps just weren’t properly cleaning and hydrating his hands. It includes a scrub, hand repair, balm and foot relief – a perfect way to say “thank you.” Find this at Uncommongoods.com through Splender, and receive 10% cash back.
Your yogi friend who joins you every Saturday morning for Bikram and bestows inspirational tips after every class just surprised you with a gift. What to do? Harness your chi and head to your gift closet to pair a few items that would be great for the Pilates lover or the yoga guru. Gift her with this stylish Citron Sundial Tote ($25 at Gaiam.com) to carry all of her class needs – it’s even large enough to carry a yoga mat. She’ll also love the style and security of these no-slip, Mary Jane-style socks ($14 at Gaiam.com). You’ll earn 10% cash back when you shop at Gaiam.com.
Cocktails and Clutches
When your stylish co-worker drops by your desk with a last-minute gift, you’ll have the perfect answer with this Clava Page clutch ($50 at Brookstone.com). It looks like a fashion accessory for a night on the town, but it doubles as an iPad sleeve during the day. She’ll appreciate the lightweight canvas construction while enjoying showing off the stylish snakeskin print. Find this holiday gift at Brookstone.com and earn 12% cash back.
A Softer Touch
We all have a friend who has a green thumb and spends her day’s elbow-deep in the dirt. What better gift closet stash than a luxurious hand cream ($32 from Bobbi Brown) to keep her hands super soft? The special formula includes Shea butter, apricot kernel and avocado oils that instantly absorb into the skin, so her hands never feel greasy. Shoppers can earn 12% cash back from Bobbi Brown Cosmetics.
Hostess with the Mostess
It never fails – your gourmet chef friends host a fabulous holiday party every year, and every year they surprise you with a homemade gift while you’re left empty handed. Not this year! Stash away the perfect gift closet idea for your hostess friends, the Lucero Olive Oil and Vinegar Trio ($30 at HarryandDavid.com). This holiday gift comes with extra-virgin Arbequina oil, a basil-infused extra-virgin olive oil and a traditional-style balsamic vinegar. Think of how proud you’ll be when they use this delicious set at their next party! Splender members can earn 12% cash back when you shop Harry & David.
Style Never Fades
Should you have to choose between style and staying warm? No! That’s why a stylish scarf should definitely be on your gift closet list. The Barbour® Merino Cashmere Tartan Scarf ($79 at Orvis.com) fits both style and utility requirements. The classic plaid design and cashmere construction transcend gender, making this gift a great investment that anyone can use for many winters to come. You can earn 5% cash back at Orvis.com when you become a Splender member.
Cookin’ with Flair
Keeping your holiday gift closet stocked with utilitarian items is key, especially for those in your life who like functional pieces that also look nice. If you’re surprised with a gift from someone who understands it’s not always about what you cook but how you present it, then this Rachael Ray Casseroval ($50 at Kohls.com) is the perfect answer. Capture the spirit of their kitchen by choosing between three vibrant colors (red, orange and a lovely fennel green) in a baking dish that can go from the oven to the table with ease. Get 5% cash back when shopping Kohls.com.

Avaiable in a number of fragrances including holiday favorites like birchwood pine, the Nest candles are a perfect addition to any room.
