As Strategist publishers, we are no strangers to the supply chain. We sniffed out impossible-to-find essentials like toilet paper and hand sanitizer from unlikely sources during the first wave of the pandemic and put together a mega-guide of supply chain workarounds when we noticed the first stock reduction last summer. This holiday season is no different with delayed shipping, low inventory, and higher costs making shopping a bit more complicated than just finding the perfect gift for your hard-to-please mother-in-law or picky teenager. But here at Strategist, we love challenges.
So welcome to the Supply-Chain-Proof Strategist’s Gift Guide, a careful selection of gifts available for purchase and shipping right now. Each item has been handpicked by a member of our team from our catalog of stories across 12 categories: Home, Toys, Technology, Beauty & Care, Food & Cooking, Outdoors & Fitness, Wellness, Travel, Animals pet, teens, stocking stuffers and wild – card options. Our choices range from solidly practical (a hotel-worthy duvet cover and indestructible pet bed) to indulgent (French stationery and a Marie-Antoinette bath soap) to just plain fun (a pair of skates. beginner wheelie and Taylor Swift’s favorite cat backpack).
This list will be checked and updated daily to ensure each of the 60 gifts below can arrive at your doorstep and under your tree in time for December 25th.
