I believe there's an art to gift giving. The right gift makes someone feel seen and appreciated, and during the holidays, I make it my mission to surprise friends and family with perfectly-matched presents that fit their individual personalities and lifestyles. It's not always easy, but when I need inspiration, one of my favorite tricks is heading to QVC.com or HSN.com.
We all know these iconic brands are world leaders in live video shopping, but their websites are just as impressive. They feature countless well-known brands (Dyson! Apple! KitchenAid! Jason Wu! Estee Lauder!), sell a wide-range of incredible products, and have curated gift guides at your fingertips if you find yourself stuck.
My favorite thing, though, is that QVC and HSN truly bring shopping to life by highlighting items with stories behind them. Each product page includes a video where you can hear all about the item and watch it in action, which helps me feel like I'm getting to know the product on a different level.
No matter who you're shopping for this year, give these sites a whirl and discover the magic for yourself. I'm telling you — you won't leave disappointed. For a small taste of what you can find, check out the gifts ahead. After all, while the notion of "it's the thought that counts" is sweet (and mostly true!), nothing beats the right gift.
