Nine months after COVID-19 was declared a global health crisis, working from home, wearing face masks and never leaving the house without a bottle of hand sanitizer have all become part of our new normal life. With the holidays fast-approaching, we’ve put together a list of practical gift ideas that will help keep your loved ones safe from the disease.

With face coverings now having become an essential for everyone, brands like Marine Serre and Off-White™ have released their own stylish, reusable versions of the item. Others have even designed accessories like chains and straps that can be worn with face masks. Another must-have in our everyday pouches are sanitizers that help fight off germs and moisturize the hands.

We’re also highlighting unexpected tools and gadgets that we didn’t know we would need this year. SafeTouch‘s hygiene tool minimizes direct contact with frequently-touched surfaces such as doorknobs, while Casetify and Lexon‘s UV sanitizers will keep your everyday devices clean. What’s more? Air purifiers will offer an extra level of protection at home.

Scroll down for more pandemic-fighting products you can gift your friends and family this holiday season.
