Achona gift guide 2021

December 9, 2021

As the gift giving season nears, ideas for presents is a strong topic of conversation for all. Within the Achona staff, there is a wide variety of desired gifts which were put together to help inspire last-minute gift-givers! 

Chloe Mintz: Dyson Hair Dryer

I know, I know. It’s a splurge. But, I genuinely think the Dyson hair dryer would be worth the expense. With incredibly thick hair (like mine), the hair dryer (supposedly) makes hair styling so much easier. It’s obviously not a need, but the hair dryer is certainly a want of mine.”

I would like the Hogwarts castle lego set because me and my brother enjoy building legos together. Recently he’s also shown interest in Harry Potter and I would like to share that with him.”

I really want this comforter because it’s super thick and cozy, plus I think it would be a nice change for my room and make my bedding more cohesive with my room decor.”

“For Christmas, I want a Nintendo Switch. Personally, I think the quality of my life would see a drastic improvement if I had a little game to play every time I avoided my piles worth of homework.”

“One of the things that I am asking for this year is Grande Lash because I have friends who use it and they had really good results!”

Isabel Bequer: Bombas Holiday Ankle Socks

“While these may seem expensive, these socks are the most comfortable socks I have ever worn. They’re perfectly thick and keep you warm without being overly hot. They fit with so many different shoes and you can wear them for a variety of activities. Also, the holiday patterns are so fun and perfectly themed for the holiday season.”

Winsome Storm: Animal Crossing: New Horizons

“I would like to get the Animal Crossing DLC so I can make all of my villagers happy and have an excuse to play on my switch more.”
