Holiday Gift Guide 2015


Happy Monday!

It's that time of year again.  The time when we start thinking about giving and celebrating the season. Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorite holidays and I love that they fall right after each other. The extra time spent with family and friends (not to mention the extra days off work) is always nice. I certainly don't forget about Thanksgiving, but it seems if I don't start thinking about Christmas early then I get overwhelmed with all that needs to be done.  I really want to get all the decorating and shopping done early so I can focus on spending time with my family and relaxing.

Speaking of shopping, do I have a treat for you!

I've teamed up with 24 amazing blogger friends to give you a week long of gift guides and giveaways! That's right, we're all sharing our favorite gifts and giving away amazing prizes.  Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the post to enter each of them, including a $75 PAINTED FOX gift card!

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE! Tons of great gifts perfect for the women and men in your life!

GIFTS FOR MEN

I don't know about you, but I find guys so hard to shop for!  They don't want the fancy jewelry or fun new clothes like women and they tend to have everything.  You're in luck if the men in your life have hobbies, but if not I've got some great gift ideas for you.  

Everything I have picked is either something my husband has or wants or what I simply find cool (Hello, Curious Bartender book!).

Even if your guy isn't handy they'll still need a drill, trust me.  I tend to use our Dewalt drill more than my husband, but it's still an amazing gift.  We also have the Craftsman work light, which is so helpful in many situations.  It not only hangs as a work light, but it has another light on top that can point in just the right spot.

By far the most used item in our house are our outdoor portable speakers.  We link them to our Itunes account through our Ipad.  They allow us to listen to music just about anywhere around the house. We've even left them outside a few times in light rain and haven't had any issues.  (This doesn't mean they are waterproof, we just got lazy and forgot them outside.)

GIFTS FOR WOMEN

I admit, I don't own any of the items that I pulled together for the women's gift guide.  That's because this is my own list, ha!  Hint, hint. #kidding #notkidding.

I just recently stumbled upon Rose Gal and could not get over how affordable everything was.  I immediately fell in love with the striped hoodie for lounging around the house and working on DIY projects.

Even though I don't consider myself a girly girly or someone who spends a lot of money on clothes, purses or jewelry, I always like to ask for them for Christmas.  I love the idea of adding my kids names or initials on a gold bar necklace.  It would also be great for a grandparent or add a friends initials for a cute personalized gift.   Don't even get me started on the reversible faux leather tote!  I would be happy if that was the only thing I got this year.

GIFTS FOR THE HOSTESS

Getting together with friends and family is a common tradition around the holidays.  No one wants to show up to a dinner party empty handed, right?  Greeting your host or hostess with one of these fabulous gifts is sure to make a lasting impression.  A bottle of wine probably wouldn't hurt either :)

GIFTS FOR THE HOME

I have a habit of always buying stuff for my home instead of for myself.  Anyone else have that problem?  If I get money or a gift card for my birthday or Christmas it tends to be spent on home decor instead of a purse or outfit.  Here's what's currently on my wish list and would likely make any home decor lover happy.

 Gift guide for the home


I don't really need another clock, but this one is definitely on my wish list and is the first purchase I'll be making when I have some extra cash.  Maybe I can swing it as a Christmas present for myself :)

I'm also dying to get a copy of Young House Love's new book!  I have their first book and can't wait to get my hands on their new one.  If you know anyone who loves to do DIY projects, this book is a must.

Phew, are you still with me?

Good.

I got an amazing giveaway that you won't want to miss!
