Let’s face it: some gifts hold broader appeal than others.

That subscription to the niche magazine about quilting? Maybe not so much on the top of everyone’s list. A phone conversation privacy mask? Definitely not for everyone.

But some gifts hold universal appeal, and therefore make for a safer bet. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite gift ideas to help you out as you search for that special something. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings . . . you can always find a reason to shop for gifts. And we hope to take some of the angst out of your search so you can focus on the part that matters—showing someone you care.  

Spa Treatments

Whether male or female, young or old, everyone benefits from a little pampering now and then. Hardly anyone is immune to the day-to-day stressors that leave you with knots in your back or a pounding headache. Cloud 9 Living offers Spa Packages that will delight any lucky recipient. Facials, hot stone massages, manicures . . . the details vary, but the reviews are consistent: we loved it!

Ember Temperature Control Ceramic Mug

Who doesn’t like their coffee or tea at an ideal temperature, from the first sip to the last? The Ember Temperature Control Ceramic Mug takes precision to a whole new level, using the latest technology to maintain the exact temperature you specify. It will cool down a super hot beverage to a comfortable temperature and then keep it there for up to two hours. Check out the travel version as well. If consuming great beverages and food is more their style, check out a Food Tour.


Glamping appeals to everyone. Nature lover? Check. Comfort seeker? Check. Whether you’re adventurous or someone who likes to play it safe, glamping combines the best of both worlds and delivers a memorable, exciting outing. The Glamping Experiences offered through Cloud 9 Living take place in a variety of scenic locations across the U.S. All that’s left is for you to pick the place.

TRTL Pillow

We can all relate to the discomfort of waking with a stiff neck after sleeping on a plane. Enter the TRTL Pillow. It wraps around your neck like a scarf and provides support for your head. While you might not be earning any style points with this one, you’re guaranteed to get better sleep and save your body from painful kinks and cramps.

Gift Certificates

Sure, a gift card can be considered generic, but they’re popular for a good reason—we like to choose our own stuff. And by selecting a gift card that’s from a favorite restaurant or store, you’re still adding a touch of personalization. Cloud 9 Living offers gift cards that are redeemable in all of our regions within the U.S. for a wide range of experiences. From delicious and educational culinary tours to heart-pumping car racing, the person you gift will get to choose something uniquely suited to him or her.

We hope we’ve given you some inspiration as you search for that perfect gift! Just remember, when shopping for others, there’s always the potential that you’ll end up shopping for yourself, too. And that’s not all bad.

Go ahead. Get yourself something nice.
