Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday Gift Guide and Giveaway

Hey friends!! If you haven't heard already, my blog friends and I have a fun event going on this week! We've each put together a holiday gift guide of some of our favorite gift ideas for this year! Hop around to each of our posts and you're sure to find an idea for everyone on your shopping list!

Even more exciting, each of us are giving away one of the items on our lists!!! Visit each of the blogs listed on the bottom of this post for a chance to win some wonderful gifts! 

The holidays are sneaking up on us very quickly, so its time to start getting into the giving spirit! I love giving gifts anytime, but there's just something about the holidays that makes it even better! I've listed some of my favorite gift ideas here!

Holiday Gift Guide

1. Cider Brewing Kit. Hard cider is all the rage lately and the perfect drink for this time of year, so why not help someone make their own? 

2. Toffee-ettes. These delicious toffee candies by Sees Candy are my favorite sweet treat around the holidays. I buy some every year! Sees has tons of great gift baskets for the chocolate lovers in your life too!

3. Play food cookie set. My nieces and nephews love Melissa and Doug play food, so I'm sure the kids on your list will too! They seriously make almost any food you can think of!

4. Rustic deer wooden sign. Brutus & Andi Co. has tons of beautiful signs for you to choose from for all of the home decor lovers on your list! I'm loving this compass sign too!

5. Cat Christmas pillow cover. The cat lovers in your life will certainly understand the image on this pillow cover! Hildreth Screen Prints creates clever designs for pillows, t-shirts, etc. The prints are screen printed by the owner himself in his basement shop. He does custom designs too, so if you can't find the gift your looking for, he'll work with you!

6. Popsugar Must Have Box. Buy a friend a box of goodies! This box is filled with full-size items each month ranging from cosmetics, to fashion items, to snacks, to books, to fitness items! Around the holidays they even have special boxes including one for men, and recently they created boxes for the expectant mother and for bridesmaids! You'll find the perfect box for any adult on your list!

7. Fit Bit. I've had a fit bit for years and I absolutely love it! The newer versions are even better! This little gadget tracks your steps, activity, calories, and even your sleep patterns! You can also input your meal information. This is the ultimate fitness tracker!

8. Floral infinity scarf. Who doesn't love some cute accessories? A pretty scarf is great for winter and a great gift for your fashionista friends!

9. Coffee mug. I don't know about you, but I can't survive without my morning coffee, and this funny mug from Paper Gold Co. would brighten anyone's morning. Why not throw together a gift basket with cute mugs and your favorite coffee beans?

10. The Silhouette Cameo. This one is on my own wish list this year! It's the perfect gift for any crafty person in your life! (A little less pricey is the Silhouette Portrait!)
