We Always Have a Million Shopping Tabs Open, But These Are 8 Gifts We’ll Actually Buy

As a kid, holiday shopping at our local mall was cause for excitement. These days, we haven’t been to a mall in ages—but we still love the thrill of discovering the best gifts. We just tend to do it online now, as our 25+ browser tabs can attest. What really convinces us to hit “buy now” on a gift is an ideal mixture of unique, functional and worth our hard-earned money. Which is why this year, we’re buying all our best gifts in one place: HSN.

HSN has a wide selection of categories—everything from home and beauty to electronics and culinary must-haves—that make gifting super easy. Not to mention, that just like the channel, has exclusive pricing and video demonstrations that show you how the products work and function: a serious help when deciding between a 10-inch kids’ tablet or the 8-inch. Below are the gifts we’re buying this holiday season from HSN. You can close out all your other tabs now.
