If you're looking for ways to simplify going into the holiday season, we suggest buying gifts in bulk. When done thoughtfully, bulk gifts will not only save you time (and money) but also are an easy way to spread holiday cheer to loved ones near and far.

To help you get started, we've rounded up our top gift ideas to buy in multiples. Think treat-yourself gifts for teachers, thoughtful desk accessories for co-workers and personalized trinkets for your besties.

Who doesn't want a good, thick and nubby beanie come winter? We love all of the color options on this one so you can pick the perfect hue for each recipient. Gift this to all members of your friend group, the co-worker who commutes by foot or teachers who get chilly at outdoor recess.

$11.99 (Pack of 2)

An adorable and thoughtful gift for a co-worker or teacher to spruce up their tree, this sweet little acrylic ornament will keep their favorite memories on display. (Bonus points for gifting this with a printed photo!)

$40 (Set of 8)

A no-fail, crowd-pleasing option, this clever little hot chocolate stick is ready-to-go with French truffle, peanut butter, peppermint and salted caramel flavors. Just dip it in a mug of hot milk and your lucky loved one can instantly enjoy the warming, nostalgic feeling of the season.

$14.95 (Set of 2)

This festive hand towel makes the perfect seasonal gift for co-workers, teachers, janitorial staff or any other group of people you want to treat this season. We recommend adding a lovely scented hand soap to make this a winning surprise.

Go the extra mile by gifting a personalized catch-all dish with your bestie's or co-worker's Zodiac sign. It's perfectly sized to hold paper clips, jewelry, change or anything else they can think of.


For the ultimate hostess or your loyal group of guys, at just $7, this ice mold tray will delight, surprise and level up their holiday cocktail game.

$9.85 (Set of 5)

Treat all the women in your family to a snuggly set of wool boot socks. Once those winter temps hit, their toes will stay nice in warm.

Help co-workers get a fresh start on the new year. This minimalist calendar will look sleek and stylish on home or office workspaces of any size.


Light up everyone's day by gifting these travel tin candles. Buying in bulk is easy-breezy, as the candles come in 19 unique scents, like red currant, pink mimosa and honeysuckle.


Gift it alone or with a mini candle — either way, we guarantee these matches will get a lot of use this winter. Beautifully packaged in an antique-style apothecary jar, a built-in strike strip makes it easy to light these safety matches and get the cozy vibes glowing.


Your busy mom friends will so appreciate the opportunity to fit in a little relaxation time thanks to this lightweight ice roller. A cooling gel head reduces puffiness and minimizes the appearance of pores when combined with gentle rolling to relieve tension. It's like a mini massage for your skin to help you feel glowy and refreshed.


Snag this classic tartan scarf for ultra-stylish bulk gifting. Family and friends will especially appreciate something so cute and cozy because we all know how chilly it gets this time of year.

Winter brings out the worst in our skin. An all-purpose salve will help protect and heal dry, chapped hands and lips. We especially like that you can choose between six different flavors to suit your lucky family member's or friend's taste.


A practical and surprising gift for teachers, co-workers, grandparents and friends, this clever little phone mount is a must-have for everyone in our constantly connected world. The ergonomic design provides a secure grip for one-handed text, scrolling and photographing and serves as a stand for hands-free use.
