The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide

By Connect Staff, December 5, 2016

It’s that time of year again—gift guide season! We know you’re busy planning year-end events and meetings for 2017, and some of you may even be tasked with coordinating your organization’s holiday party (oh, the misery). So we’ve taken the guesswork out of buying presents, rounding up our top gifts for 2016. Many of them are perfect for event profs, but might be just as well-received by a close friend, your son or even your mother-in-law. Whether it’s for easing your worries about leaving pets home alone, or fashion that’s both comfortable and stylish, we’ve got you covered. There’s nothing wrong with a “to me, from me” gift tag under the tree either. Happy holidays!
