Because we know it’s impossible for any one gift guide to be all things to all people, our gift guide is all about us. Kind of. We’ve filled this gift guide we stuff we love, stuff we want, stuff we know our kids, husbands, parents and friends would love.
10th Avenue Teas
Each of these containers contains 60 servings of tea making them totally eco-friendly. Bonus? No gross tea bags to deal with.
My Story Isn’t Over Wall Art
This itty bitty 6 inch square piece of art is adorable. We’re big fans of the semicolon project around here.
Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection
So pretty! We’ll take one of each.
Dr. Haushka Spruce Warming Bath Essence
We’re dreaming of warm, delicious smelling baths on cool nights.
4.5 lb bag of Hot Tamales
Come on, tell us you don’t want to find this in your stocking? (Megan might be ordering one for herself right now.)
Geometric Bud Vase
Stop it right now! Sometimes we gasp when we see stuff we have to have. This was one of those times.
Moscow Mule Mug
We both LOVE a Moscow Mule and really want some pretty mugs to go along with our obsession. Too 2014? No way, we say.
GIFTS FOR OUR KIDS
For your little STEM lover, these games by ThinkFun are always a big hit. Megan’s son loves the Laser Maze and will be delighted to find this one under the tree.
A bit of a splurge for sure, but this tops our daughters’ wish lists this year. (Although Megan’s daughter did say she was going to ask Santa for a Ring Pop the other day.) Someone wants Maryellen, another wants Grace.
Good Night Yoga
Personally, bedtime is our favorite time to connect with our kids while we’re reading with them. A yoga book that will help us all relax? SOLD.
Olivia Gem Dress
Raise your hand if you have an Oliva loving kid in your house? This collection from Gymboree is to die for. We love that it’s character reminiscent without being plastered with licensed characters.
The Curated Tee Subscription Box
For the parent who wants their precious wearing something that you can’t find on the racks at Target, a subscription to The Curated Tee is just the thing.
This is the sort of thing that probably won’t even last until the end of winter break, we know. But sometimes part of the magic of Christmas is getting the thing that the kids swear they want for maximum Christmas morning impact.
Stance Socks Wendy reports these are ALL the rage at her daughter’s school and apparently these socks are sweeping the nation. So, give socks for Christmas and do it with our full blessing.
GIFTS FOR THE KID AT HEART
Illustrated Harry Potter
Please. Like you’re surprised by this one. And for the next seven years, as each new illustrated book is released, expect to see that on this gift guide as well.
Adult Coloring Books
Totally jumped on this bandwagon and we’re not even sorry.
Or perhaps this one is more your speed?
Big Bang Theory Legos
Yeah, Megan is pretty much losing her mind over these. And not sharing them with her kids, either.
GIFTS FOR THE LADIES. THAT’S US. WE’RE LADIES.
iPhone cases from Society 6
We both love a pretty phone case and we don’t have the attention span to keep one for very long, so a new shiny one is always appreciated. We each picked our faves from Society 6, but OMG so many choices.
Megan’s Choice – Gold Confetti Color Blur
Wendy’s Choice – Wild Garden II
Erin Condren Planner
Sigh. These are a total splurge when you think about what this really is, but they are the darling of the planner world and can be personalized and they’re just so great.
PJ Salvage Pajamas
S’mores pajamas? Are you kidding me? PJ Salvage makes some GREAT jammies every year.
Gilligan & O’Malley Pajamas
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the magic of these Target pajamas. Tons of great styles, super soft, super comfortable, super budget friendly.
Rebecca Minkoff Charging Wristlet
Cute and functional. Say no more.
Philosophy Shower Gel
If you’re like us, you grab the $5 bottle of shower gel from the aisles of Target and it’s fine. But it’s Christmas! Go nuts and get this fabulous smelling shower gel and take fancy showers.
L’Occitane Shower Oil with Almond Oil
While we’re talking about fancy showers, we would be crazy if we left off this bottle of amazingness.
Sephora Favorites Gift Sets There are entirely too many makeup gift sets available during the holidays for us to possibly choose one. We love these from Sephora, especially Give Me More Lip & Sephora Superstars, which feature a variety of well-loved products from different brands.
Benefit Real Cheeky Blush Palette
No, really, we can’t pick a favorite. But this blush palette from Benefit with five of their killer blushes AND a mascara and eyeliner sample? Yeah, we want this too.
Halogen cashmere sweater
These sweaters come in a million colors and are a pretty great price point for cashmere.
Barefoot Dreams Drape Front Cardigan
This is one of those things that will make you look twice at the price, but just feel one of these babies in person and you’ll be sold. It’s loungewear, it’s a cozy sweater for school drop off, it’s an adorable addition to skinny jeans and boots. She’ll never take it off.
Alex & Ani bracelets
Alex & Ani bracelets come in a million styles and we’re loving the birthstone collection this year. Their price point makes them a great gift for so many people. Buy one for your sister, your babysitter, your best friend, and then build on her collection every year.
Stella & Dot Chandelier Earrings We couldn’t let a gift guide go by without including another of our fave jewelry brands, Stella & Dot. These chandelier earrings are just the right amount of pop to jazz up a night out, or to make your favorite white tee look like a perfectly polished outfit.
Under $50 and amazingly cute. Sold. Done. Next.
GIFTS FOR OUR GUYS, THOSE LUCKY DUDES
Flannel Lounge Pants
Pajamas for everyone!
Again, a total splurge, but imagine the look on the face of the baseball fan in your life when you present them with a blueprint of their home team’s stadium.
Used Ball Baseball Cufflinks
This site has SO MUCH STUFF for sports fans, but we couldn’t resist these baseball cufflinks. You choose your team and you get cufflinks made from a ball used in one of their games!
Retro Series Clue
Do you have a lover of all things old – excuse us – RETRO, in your house? The newly release retro series board games from Target are right up their alley. (They even have Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots!)
Scooby Doo Mystery Machine LEGO
Sure, our kids want LEGO for Christmas, but a nostalgic set that we can build with them (and then hide from them so they don’t break it?) Yes, please.
Kitchen Surfing – Personal Chefs cook in YOUR kitchen!
We SO have to try this for a video, don’t you think? And how much fun would this be for date night? Bonus? No babysitter required.
Aeropress Coffee & Espresso Maker
For the coffee connoisseur in your life, get an Aeropress, then sit back, relax, and revel in having given the perfect gift.
GIFTS FOR GRANDPARENTS
Yes, we’re serious. For the grandparent who has everything, plaster their favorite little face on a sheet of stamps and watch them go crazy over your creativity.
Minted Letterpress Silhouette
Grandparents just love those little faces. Get your own custom silhouette and, well, you’ll be the hit of Christmas morning.
While not a new option, the Paperwhite really is the be all, end all of Kindles. Get one for the person in your family who reads everything they can get their hands on.
Custom Cover Notebooks
Have the kids draw a picture for grandma, then upload it and have it printed as a notebook cover. These come in a set of three, so cover all of your grandparent bases and maybe keep one for yourself.
