Holiday Gift Guide

Hey guys, in case you didn't know, Christmas is just 2 short weeks away!

If you're anything like me, you're still trying to find gifts for a few hard-to-buy-for people on your list. Don't worry though, I've got you covered! See below for my 2019 gift guide that covers the men, women, and children in your life. Extra bonus- I've included all the Amazon links for quick (yay 2-day Prime delivery!) & easy shopping!

For Him: Guys are notoriously hard to buy for, but with help from my husband, I put together a list of gifts any guy would love to have!

  • Wireless Bose Speaker- Don't let the size fool you, this sound from this speaker is amazing! We have this little guys at home and use it almost daily. The battery lasts a long time and it's so easy to carry around from room to room.

  • Winter Coat- If you want to get the guy on your list a gift he'll be impressed with- this coat is it. It's incredibly warm yet very lightweight.Despite it being considered a 'puffer', it has a very flattering fit and is very easy to move in. My husband gets annoyed with hoods, so he loves the fact that this coat doesn't have one.

  • Wood Watch- This gift is a bit of a splurge, but so worth it! These watches are made from authentic reclaimed hardwoods and stainless steel, each handcrafted watch is one of a kind.

  • Leather Messenger Bag- I got my husband a bag almost identical to this for his birthday a few years ago, and he's used it almost every day sense. He takes it to work daily, and also uses it as a carryon for traveling. It's the perfect size- just big enough to hold your necessities but not so big that it's annoying to carry. The real leather has also worn beautifully over the years.

  • Bag Toss Game- Yard games are always a good gift idea, and you can never go wrong with a game of Bags! I really like this set because it's a nice simple design, and if you want it's easily customizable!

  • Electric Smoker- Honestly, this is a gift the whole family will enjoy!

  • Shoe Shapers- This is a must-have for a guy that owns a pair of dress shoes, especially if he travels. These shoe shapers will help ensure that the toes of your best leather shoes will never be squished in your suitcase!

  • Beard Grooming Kit- My husband couldn't grow a beard to save his life, but I have plenty of friends who are fully embracing the lumberjack look! This kit is especially amazing because it comes fully equipped with Christmas decorations for your next holiday party!

  • Luggage Set- You can never have too much luggage, and these days a hard case is a must. This set looks great and has a lot of interior pockets for organized packing!

  • Man Crate- This is the only gift on this entire post that isn't from Amazon, but it's just too good I had to share! I got my husband a Man Crate for his birthday one year, and watching him try to open it was as good as the gift inside! There are so many options to choose from that you'll be able to find a gift for even the hardest guy on your list to buy for!

For Her: For the ladies, I basically put together a list of things that I'd like to have as well as a few practical things that you can never have enough of!

  • Tote Bag- Two bags in one?? Yes, please! This cute tote is the perfect size to use for work, travel, or just as an everyday 'mom bag'. The reversible nature of the bag is an added bonus!

  • Jewelry Stand- There's nothing more annoying than trying to untangle a bunch of necklaces when you're trying to get ready. This jewelry stand is the perfect solution! I love the drawers on the base for added storage and that it comes in different color options.

  • Throw Blanket- You can never have too many blankets in your house, and this throw is the perfect addition! The Buffalo Plaid pattern is on trend for the holiday season, and it comes in many different color options.

  • Letterboard- I didn't know I needed a double-sided letterboard until I saw this one! I'm a huge fan of these and love displaying them around the house & using them in photos.

  • Leopard Travel Case- Obviously, I'm a fan of leopard print (it's a neutral, ok?!). This hanging travel case is perfect for travel when you're limited on counter space!

  • Portable Photo Printer- This is a perfect gift for anyone that loves taking photos on their phone. Instead of letting them sit in your camera roll forever, you can now print them off on the spot and share them with friends & family!

  • Wallet- I love this wallet because it's the perfect size and comes in so many colors. With such a great price, you can get more than one to swap out depending on what you're wearing!

  • Polaroid Camera- I received one of these as a gift a few years ago, and I still love using it to this day!

  • Cozy Socks- Here in the Midwest, Winter doesn't play around. There is no such thing as having too many cozy socks when the temps start to drop! These come in many different colors and would look great showing over the top of a pair of ankle boots.

  • Phone Stand- I love the simple yet practical design of this phone stand. It holds all your stuff but isn't bulky or an eyesore sitting on our nightstand.

For the Kiddos: We don't do any screen time for our son, so you won't be seeing any kind of electronics on this list as I have no experience on what's good & what isn't in that area. For this list, I've put together a lot of hands-on ideas that kids of all ages will enjoy!

  • Kids Camera- This little camera is perfectly designed to take the abuse of a child while still letting them explore their creativity. This is the perfect way to see the world through your child's eyes!

  • Art Set- Every child loves an art set, and what's great about this one is that it comes with a case so they can keep all of their things together!

  • 3-Wheel Scooter- This is a fun gift for all ages! The three wheels gives great stability and helps them learn the balance they will need for when they graduate to two wheels!

  • Geode Set- For the little geologists of the family, this little geode set is the perfect way to learn how rocks are formed! The kit comes with everything you will need for some hands-on fun and learning.

  • Play & Store Table- This table creates the perfect play space and helps keep all the toys as organized as possible.

  • Wooden Train Set- A classic gift, this wooden train set is perfect for all ages. It comes with 9 different track set-up options, and the kids can come up with many of their own designs as well!

  • Snap Circuits- This gift is just as fun for the adults as it is the kids! Learn how electricity works by creating your own circuits. There's instructions on simple setups while you are first learning, and then it also has some options for more complex circuits once you get more skilled!

  • Magna Tiles- All the different shapes and colors that have limitless connections make these tiles a perfect gift for the kids who like to build elaborate creations.

  • Marble Run Set- With countless setup options, this set is perfect for the kids who like to constantly create something new. The only downfall with this toy is that you have to be sure to keep the marbles out of reach from young babies and pets.

  • Wooden Log Set- Another classic toy, these log blocks allow for endless creations!

I hope these lists have helped you with any of the last-minute shopping you may need to do! Remember, the holidays are about spending time with friends and family- so don't stress about the gift, as your presence is the best gift of all!

Happy holidays!
