Family-Friendly Holiday Gift Guide + an Erin Condren Giveaway!

If you’re like me, sometimes it’s a struggle coming up with gift ideas for our loved ones. Whether they are the person who has everything or the extra picky person-sometimes gift-giving can add a little extra stress to our already full plates around the holidays.

Of course, I know gifts aren’t the reason for the season, but I absolutely adore giving gifts and watching the recipient tear open the gift wrap. Best feeling ever! Some of you may have already conquered your list and are done shopping, but for those who are doing a little last minute shopping-  here are a few ideas for everybody in your family! 

For Her

I follow Mix and Match Mama’s blog religiously so was ecstatic when she released cookbooks! This would be a perfect gift for someone who loves to cook!

And another idea for the kitchen aficionado..these bowls are also a wonderful idea! I personally have this set and LOVE them! I set them out by my KitchenAid mixer because they’re just too pretty to hide away in a shelf. We use them for soup, ice cream, cereal, anything goes! You can mix and match your own colors too at your local Anthropologie! 

I’ve never met a scarf that I didn’t like- these scarves look so cozy! And I’m a goner for plaid!

Have a coffee lover or tea lover on your list? Then these initial mugs from Anthropologie are a perfect match! These work great for teacher gifts too! Add a gift card and voila! 

These earrings are super cute and affordable! Perfect stocking stuffer or even teacher gifts! 

I have these pajama pants in an old pattern from Gap and they are just so gosh darn comfy! Perfect for a snowy, winter day inside! They come in all sorts of colors and patterns that will be sure to fit the style of anyone on your list!

Warm cozy slippers go great with cozy pj pants–and these have rave reviews!

For the list makers and organizers on your list, Erin Condren planners are a must! I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about them and they are personalizable and come in tons of different colors and patterns. I love the accessories too and use the markers and notepads all the time for my own organizational needs! (keep scrolling all the way to the bottom for an Erin Condren giveaway and a link to save $10!)

For the more sentimental lady on your list, a photo gift couldn’t be more personable. From calendars to photo books- you can create your favorite memories into keepsakes they’ll treasure forever! 

For him

If the reviews for the lady’s Ugg slippers are this good, then the men’s should be good too, right?!

You can’t go wrong with a North Face vest, perfect for the winter months! 

Does your guy like to listen to music while he works? Then this bluetooth speaker is the perfect companion for him! He can take it to the garage, the shed. It’s also great for grilling out in the summer! 

Since we’re coming off No Shave November, maybe your guy needs a new shaving set. I ordered this razor set for my husband last year and we love the products! You can sign up to have the products delivered right to your door, however often he needs! I believe this brand is now available at Target, too. I love the smell of the shaving cream- yum!! 

For Kids

If your kiddos are like mine, they love anything that has to do with crayons, markers, and paint. This set would be perfect for the art loving kiddo! 

Games are always a fun option: Pie Face or a more educational game are family favorites.

These magnatiles are another great gift option for both boys and girls! 

Motherhood would not exist without stepping on a Lego or two, so here’s some ideas to add to the collection! 

This princess set for the older kids

A backhoe loader building kit for the littles 

Design & Drill Flower Power Studio– my youngest is going to love this one! 

I think this ZOOB BuilderZ S.T.E.M. Challenge looks so fun! 

Childhood is not childhood without classic Play Doh. It also makes a great stocking stuffer!

I thought I would also include this doll for those with smaller kiddos. I have found that 18-inch dolls, like the American Girl brand, are just a little too big for younger kids. I got this 14 1/2-inch doll for my three year old and I think it will be the perfect size for her!
