Christmas Gift Guide: Ideas for Everyone on Your List

What if I told you I did all of your Christmas shopping for you?  Technically I didn’t buy them all for you, but this gift guide will provide that same feeling of relief!

It’s that magical, joyful, cozy time of year again, which also means the dreaded Christmas present search.  While the holidays are supposed to be the ‘most wonderful’ time of the year, the stress of fighting crowds of people at the mall, or spending hours online to find the perfect present can leave you feeling less than jolly.

I am one of those people that love giving gifts more than receiving them, and I happen to be a pretty good gift giver.  I typically spend HOURS searching for the perfect gifts for the people in my life, and I’ve compiled a list so you don’t have to.  downloadWhether you’re searching for your mom, dad, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin, boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, I’ve got you covered!  (Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom for even more of a variety of budget friendly and unique gift ideas I snuck in at the end.) 

Gifts for Parents-

For the crafty parent– Cricut is a VERY popular item this year!  It’s a DIY dream come true that can personalize home décor, customize clothes, and so much more!Screen Shot 2017-12-17 at 5.23.50 PM

Where to Buy:




For the parent in need of some Zen– Ultrasonic Aromatheraphy Diffuser.  I own this diffuser and it’s the best!  It has a natural looking, earthy, wood element to it, and is so quiet when it’s diffusing.  You can also choose between 7 adjustable LED lights.Screen Shot 2017-12-17 at 5.36.08 PM

Where to Buy:



For the wine loving parent– Coravin Wine Preservation System hands down!  With Coravin you can have a glass of wine, without ever removing the cork!  It uses a special needle that inserts into the cork, so it preserves the quality and longevity of the wine.

Where to Buy:

For the traveling parent– Samsonite Silhouette Sphere Spinner Suitcase.  I recently got these as a wedding present, and they are the best luggage I have EVER owned.  The handles have this really soft padding, they glide with ease, and they don’t topple over if you over pack them (which I ALWAYS do).Screen Shot 2017-12-17 at 5.34.08 PM

Gifts For Your Significant Other-

For the romantic partner– A weekend getaway to somewhere local (4 hours max).  Nothing is more fun than getting away together to spend some quality time.  Pick somewhere quiet and secluded, and for bonus points- pack their bag and don’t tell them where you’re going, keep it a surprise!

For the pampered partner- Spa Products.  There is nothing I love more than a good bubble bath, face mask, or luxurious spa gift set!  Here are some of my favorites that will be a guaranteed hit!

Lush Bath Bombs-

Fresh Brown Sugar Bath & Shower Gel

Caudalie Divine Oil

Arcona Hydrating Wine Mask

For the sentimental partner- Take one of those cork boards that you hang on the wall, and decorate it with pictures, movie tickets, memories of places you’ve been, etc.  It’s an inexpensive sweet way to commemorate your relationship.

For the active/sporty partner– A Fitbit.  Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a Fitbit….(totally kidding), but I do know that for an active person these are gold!  They track your steps, count calories, and keep you on track for your fitness goals.

Gifts for The Kids In Your Family-

Fingerlings- These are the breakout toy of this year!  I don’t even have children and it’s all I hear about.  If you’re lucky enough to score one in time for Christmas, you will hit the jackpot of that child’s excitement!Screen Shot 2017-12-17 at 5.56.42 PM

Easy Bake Oven- Remember having one of these growing up?  Well, they’re still a hit!  I got it for my niece this year and can’t wait to see her reaction.

Laser Tag- This is what I got my nephew for Christmas this year, and I think he will be SO excited about it!!  It comes as a 2 player game but you can buy extensions if you want to add players.
