Gifts for the outdoors person

I know it might seem like I am repeating myself with sharing some of the same products but on different guides, but that is just because they would make amazing gifts for a wide variety of people. Much of what I shared in for the Athlete Guide could also work for the Outdoor’s person, though you’ll also find items like backpacks, and trekking poles, that they will love as well.

Gifts for Game Night

Who doesn’t love game night? Games also make a great host and hostess gifts in my opinion. Whether it is Cards against Humanity or kid friendly games like Drone Home, or a more classic game like janga, they are sure to bring all the fun laughs and maybe even a little healthy competition!

Gifts for the Coffeeholic

Alright THIS might be a favorite guide. Coffee is the language of love in my book and it is the gift that keeps on giving, and helps make the world a little better. Being slightly dramatic, but also kinda serious, most people it is a great gift to give, whether it is a frother, or a new pour over carafe, or just the gift of coffee itself. And when all else fails, gift cards to the person’s favorite coffee shop is always a win!

Gifts for the Chef

This is always a fun guide to compile, as I use to be a chef and baker. There are so many gadgets to choose from, that yo can find something for the most basic chef, to the most experienced. Whether they are starting out and need a kitchen aid mixer or more experienced looking to replace pots, or looking for new gadgets like an immersion blender to add to their culinary arsenal.

Gifts for the blogger/photographer

Another Guide I would be remiss not to share is that for the blogger, after all this IS a blog. Many of the things I shared in this guide, from the phone stand, to the portable lens to a small phone light I actually use myself and have been so beneficial to making my job easier. It’ll be sure to help the content creators in your life!

Gifts for the host and hostess

It can be so hard to know what to get a host or hostess. How many bottles of wine do they REALLY need? (okay don’t answer that!) I rounded up some different types of hostess gifts, from a woven bowl, to a throw blanket, to even a warming plate for mugs, it shows that you gave thought and appreciate their party hosting skills.

Gifts for the Hard to Shop for

We ALL have that person or persons who are so hard to shop for you just don’t know what to get them. They either have everything or seem to go out and buy it themselves. These are unique gifts, that are practical, like a power drill, to kinda fun, like a drone, heated blanket, and when all else fails, a massage gun, that is actually pretty amazing.

Gift Guide for the traveller

With things finally back to (almost!) normal, people are traveling like never before. While it can be insanely stressful, there are things you can do to make it easier, especially when it comes to packing. Packing cubes have been a life saver, and and I love this jewelry case and matching cords case that keeps everything neat and tidy in your suitcase.

What I am asking Santa For

I shared this on my Friday Favorites the other day and I am re-sharing again. People always ask what I am asking for and here it is, it is a meld of practicality, but also wants, from a perfume I wear, to my favorite Adidas sneakers and Spanx leggings to earrings from sewcialite.

Gifts for Kids

Kids are always the best and most fun to shop for, especially when they are younger! The choices are endless! I also try to do a fun game like chess or the new one Drone Home, or something fun like this play sink that actually works, or a Melissa and Doug play coffee set (starting them young!) the choices are endless, but I tried to narrow it down!

Amazon Gifts For Kids

Obviously it didn’t work because here is another kids guide, this time I focused on toys from Amazon and that were wooden for those looking for more natural toys and less plastic. This smoothie kit is a hit with my goddaughter, as is this wooden tool set.

Gifts for Men

Men can be difficult to shop for. I managed to scrounge up some gift ideas that are sure to be a hit come Christmas morning, from a drone, to a music player, to a tool holder that goes around the wrist, these are different gift ideas, but still useful.

Stocking Stuffers for Kids

Last but not least are stocking stuffers. I have found that especially with kiddos, stockings can be a huge hit, with fun trinkets games, like the old school water games, or foam airplanes, or even something like crafts, kids love the simple but fun toys and they make great stocking stuffers.

Stocking Stuffers for women

Much like kiddos, women’s stocking stuffers are relatively easy, from practical things like deodorant, and make-up sponges to more fun items like a light up mirror and face masks, their are things for pampering, but also being useful.
