mountain bike

Bikes Aren’t Just for Kids Anymore: Sirdar S-700 S-800 26/29-Inch Mountain Bike

A good bike is pretty much an unbeatable ‘B’-themed gift. Bikes serve multiple purposes. They’re great for getting exercise, burning calories and losing weight, but they’re also just a lot of fun. There’s something amazing about forcing your muscles to pull you up a steep hill, and there’s something just as triumphant about coasting down the other side.

Bike riding is a joy for people of all ages, which is why this Sirdar mountain bike is a great gift for both the adults and kids on your gift list this year.

bean bag chair

An Old-School Classic: Big Joe Classic 98 Bean Bag Chair

Bean bag chairs may be a little retro, but retro is coming back in style. These Big Joe bean bag chairs measure 33″ x 30″ x 20″ and are designed for younger children; however, the company does make larger bean bag chairs for adults as well.

This one comes in five different colors or a zebra print pattern. The fabric is durable and water- and stain-resistant. Best of all, the bag is refillable, so if it compresses over time, it’s not an issue.

home tool kit

This Black+Decker tool kit comes with practically everything a handyman would need to fix things around the house. It has 83 pieces including a 20-volt drill and a ton of different drill and screwdriver bits for it.

There are also hex wrenches, a tape measure, screwdriver, hammer and level. The drill comes with a rechargeable battery, and the charger is also included. Everything comes in a convenient carrying bag to help him keep track of it all as well.

bakeware set

A Baker’s Dream: 6-Piece Bakeware Set by Gorilla Grip

A nice bakeware set is a good option for the friends in your life who enjoy making tasty treats like cakes, cookies and muffins. This set is made of superior carbon steel, so it isn’t prone to bending, popping or warping even at temperatures reaching 482ยบ.

There are six pieces – two cookie sheets, two muffin pans and two ten-inch round pans – and each piece is coated with a non-stick coating for ensuring your friend’s baked goods will come out perfectly every time.

It also makes cleaning up a breeze.


They Make Music Sound Better: Beats Solo Pro Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones

Beats headphones are pretty much the ultimate in high-quality listening experiences. These are wireless, come in six different colors and feature Active Noise Cancelling technology for a truly immersive experience.

They also include the Apple H1 headphone clip and class 1 Bluetooth, which extends the wireless range quite far from the source with fewer instances of lost signal. They work with both Apple and Android devices.

Buffy seasons complete series

For the Avid Fantasy Binge-Watcher: Buffy Seasons 1-7: The Complete Series

If you have a binge-watching friend who loves fantasy/sci-fi or who just adores anything Joss Whedon has ever done, this box set collection of Buffy the Vampire Slayer seasons one through seven is a truly unbeatable gift.

The set comes with the entire series on DVD, along with a ton of extra footage and “special” features for each individual season. There’s also a copy of the first Buffy comic included and a few other little goodies.

It’s a great collection.

fishing rods

Fisherman’s Delight: Berkley Glowstik Surf Fishing Rods

When it comes to making great fishing rods, Berkley is somewhere near the top of the list. This particular rod can be purchased as a casting rod or a spinning rod. You can buy whichever your friend needs based on his fishing preferences.

Both are made of fiberglass and feature stainless steel guides and Titanium oxide inserts. The handles are shrink-wrapped and fully rubberized, and the rods have a battery-operated, red LED core that can be controlled with a single touch.

These rods are great for any pro or casual fishermen in your life.

bleach box set

For the Anime Fanatic: Bleach Box Set Volumes 1-21

If you have someone on your holiday gift list who’s a huge anime nerd – don’t knock it; nerds are IN this holiday season – this box set collection of the Bleach manga is a good choice. When it comes to popular manga, Bleach is high up on the list, and this set contains volumes one through 21! They all come in a great storage box with a handle, so it’s both attractive and convenient.

The set is a little pricey, and it’s not something that’s going to suit everyone’s tastes. It certainly isn’t a great option for a blind gift exchange. However, if you have someone who’s really into manga, they’ll love this collection.

banjo ukulele

Make a Little Music: Banjo Ukulele Concert 23-Inch by AKLOT

If neither you nor anyone in your family is really into music, this may seem like a strange gift. If you come from a musically inclined family or group of friends, though, a banjo ukulele – banjolele – is an amazing gift.

It’s not super expensive, and it has a warm, rich sound that’s quite lovely to hear.

This one features a two-way truss rod, which will allow your loved one to customize his own action, and the frets have been carefully sanded to perfectly suit the maple fingerboard for an easy glide across the strings.

It’s comfortable to hold and easy to play. It also comes with a ton of extras including picks, a strap, tuner, carrying case and more.


For the Classy Lady: BCBG Generation Tritone Cuff Bracelet

This lovely copper- and silver-colored cuff bracelet is a great, inexpensive gift for the more elegant jewelry lovers in your life. It doesn’t have a clasp or closure, which means it should fit a wide variety of wrist sizes, and because it’s made of metal-covered gold, it won’t lead to discoloration after being worn for a while.

The natural metal colors also lend themselves well to just about any outfit, so it always looks great.

Barbie doll

The Classic Girl’s Gift: Barbie Signature 2020 Holiday Barbie Doll

You can’t have a list of ‘B’-themed gifts and not include Barbie on it. Barbie is a holiday gift staple. Since her first release in 1959, Barbie has been at the top of little girl’s wish lists all over the world.

This is the 2020 Holiday Barbie, and she’s absolutely gorgeous. Whether you’re buying her for a child who wants to play or for a serious collector, Holiday Barbie 2020 is a must-have for any Barbie fan.

She’s even fairly reasonably priced, especially when compared to some of the previous Holiday Barbies.

bread machine

Even More Yummy in Her Tummy: Rozmoz Pro Bread Machine with Homemade Function

If you’re looking for a gift that’s fun, practical and a little unique, consider this bread maker by Rozmoz. As bread makers go, it’s a fairly great one. It has 14 customized programs and an optional DIY function for the more daring bread makers.

It can make loafs of 500, 750 or 1,000 grams with either light, medium or dark coloring.

Because the pan is ceramic, the bread cooks evenly throughout, so she won’t be left with burned spots or spots that aren’t quite done enough.

The machine also has an optional 15-hour time delay for when she needs to preset a beginning cook time and a 60-minute warming feature that’ll stop the machine from cooking but allow it to keep the bread warm and toasty so she can have a fresh loaf when she gets home.

Finally, it looks great and is easy to use.
