We’ve gathered some of our Christmas gift list favorites for you to help streamline your holiday shopping- most of these are on major sale!
I don’t know about you but personally I LOVE Christmas gift guides! There are so many people to shop for during the holidays that I need to find inspiration wherever I can get it. So when I was collecting ideas for our Christmas gift list favorites I consulted with several different people. The items on these lists are all things we either already have and love, or that we desperately want. (hint, hint) 😉 So grab your coffee and a cozy blanket and let’s go shopping!
First up for our Christmas gift list favorites- the MEN!
Clockwise from top left:
I’ve also linked everything in pink for your shopping convenience- cause its all about convenience riiiight?!
The MOTIV Ring: My friend Rosa told me about this one. She plans to get it for her hubby. This is a fitness ring that actually tracks your steps, heart rate, calories, sleep and its waterproof and syncs with your phone! This ring also provides security using 2-step verification for your online accounts. Crazy cool right?!
The Fitbeast Handgrip Workout Strengthener Kit: My hubby is convinced that all guys want to increase their hand strength for and I quote “just manly stuff that you need to do as a man.” Yep, that’s verbatim folks.
Ugg slippers: Let’s face it, everyone likes good cozy slippers and it doesn’t get much cozier than Ugg’s. These are built to last too.
Phone Car Mount: My hubby has a truck and loves this phone mount.
Origin Men’s denim: These jeans are made in the good old US of A and they’re stretchy.
Travel Bar Kit: Every guy needs bar tools and we love the leather bag this ones comes with.
Blanton’s Whiskey: If your guy likes barrel-aged whiskey he’ll love this one. This is a top item on my hubby’s list this year. 😉
Power Washer: Ok this is on both of our lists and even my mother-in-laws! You always need a power washer in my opinion.
Adidas sneakers: So old school white sneakers are can we say TRENDING right now?! 😉 My hubby has these and they are so cute on!
Anthony Skin Care: My buddy Laird told me about this company. They’re paraben-free and their philosophy is to blend natural ingredients with science. This face wash uses glycolic acid which helps to exfoliate- making shaving a breeze.

Next up- the Ladies!!!
Clockwise from top left:
Gold Initial necklace: I love dainty necklaces and I have had my eye on one of these initial necklaces for a while now. This one is pure gold and made to order from Etsy. It’s 20% off right now too!
Charging station: My sis Isabella is a millenial, and she actually suggested several items on this list. This charging station is one of them. It can charge your phone, watch and earbuds and it doesn’t hurt that its also super cute!
Journal pens: One of the other items on this list is a bullet journal. Apparently they are all the rage right now (so says my millenial sis) and these pens are the perfect accessory.
Backpack: Backpacks are definitely having their moment and this one from Parker Clay is so stinkin cute I can hardly stand it! It’s definitely one of my favorites for my Christmas gift list this year. Plus, right now its $50 off!!!
Slippers: I’m obsessed with these slippers! I ordered these on Etsy from a lady who makes them in Poland! They’re made to order and are genuine leather and sheepskin. The quality is amazing and they are only $24! I love all the cute designs and the shipping was super fast. Honestly, these are so unique that I think they make the best Christmas gift for that special lady in your life.
Away luggage: My girlfriend Jackie had this bag and when I saw it it literally stopped me in my tracks! It was so good looking! Plus it can charge your phone! How genius is that?!
My billie razor: Again, my sis who’s in college recommended this one. I think its a great idea! The billie razor is super cute and excellent quality. You can gift someone a 6 month subscription (razors shipped monthly) for just $27!
Air fryer: Hot air fryers are huge right now. Not only are they healthy but they cook your food perfectly in just minutes. A gift every busy mom can use. This one is currently 39% off at Amazon and got great reviews!
Essential Oil Diffuser: Another super trending item are oil diffusers. Essential oils have so many health benefits, and I think we all know at least one person who sells them. We thought this diffuser from Amazon was so cute! It also changes colors and has a timer.
Air Pods: If you still know someone using corded headphones please, PLEASE get them a pair of bluetooth. Plus if your lady likes to swim these work in the water! Genius!
Bandolier Iphone wallet: I have had my eyes on this case for a while. There are so many cute styles and I love the idea of this. I always have my phone on me, so if there’s a stylish and more practical way to carry it around I’m down. Get this on sale for 30% off!
Bullet Planner: Have you heard of this? If you have a lady in your life who’s an artist or likes to doodle this journal is for her. My sis says all the girls have these. It’s a total THING!
Uggs: I love Uggs and I think these are super cute! In fact, any booties would make a great gift! Head to Nordstrom for their huge sale where most of their booties are 30% off!
Some other Christmas gift list favorites for women-
-Booties of any kind! Even Hunter boots for the winter season would be an amazing gift. Get them on sale now!
-Gift cards for mani/pedi, massage, facial
-Gifts for the active lady: rock climbing gym day pass, stand up paddle boarding rentals, tennis lesson package, REI gift card, Smartwool socks (so good!), windbreaker jacket (think Lululemon, JOYLAB from Target, ALO)
-Headband for working out. Lululemon makes some really cute ones that are also reflective for running when the sun isn’t up yet. Also, I love this knit version from Northface. I also saw this super cute from Aerie.
-Sherpa jacket- find a really cute one in my post here
-Makeup kits are amazing this time of year!
-Anything from Anthropologie (if your lady likes to bake, cook or entertain they have the cutest things!)
-Super comfy PJs or loungewear (again Anthro has some really cute ones!)
Can’t forget the kids!
Some of these items are for girls. I tend to be more focused on that since I do have three! Ha! Plus I have four girl nieces now, but some of these would also make great gifts for boys.
All sources linked. Starting with clockwise from top left:
King Art gel sticks: Let’s face it, no matter how many crayons and markers you buy your kids they inevitably need to be replaced after just a few months. This is a great time of year to replenish their stash of art supplies, and I love these gel sticks! They’re metallic and work on dark paper. You can brush on water to create a water color effect. And you can even use them on wood, glass or canvas.
Mini waffle maker: If your kid likes to cook it would be a cute idea to start getting them some of their very own appliances! How cute is this mini waffle maker from Urban Outfitters?! It comes in white too if your boy isn’t into flowers. 😉
Fingerling babies: Fingerlings are really popular with all kids right now. And when you give them a mini baby version it just ups the cute factor 1000%. These are on the top of my girls list this year.
Chatbooks: This is an app you can download to your phone that syncs with your instagram account. I give my kids their own personal instagram hashtag by date each year. This way when I want to make one of these books all I need to do is click on the hashtag, and it brings up all their pics. What makes this so easy is that you’ve already edited, captioned and geotagged these pics. So you are literally making a book with just a couple clicks. Chatbooks offers so many cute cover options and sizes too. You can order the mini version (hello, stocking stuffer idea!) or get the 6×6 size in a soft cover. We’ve had to evacuate a couple times due to forest fires, and these are the first things my kids grab. They get one every year and its their favorite.
Hatchimals wow: Yes, hatchimals are still a thing. Now they’ve just upped the anty with this giant stretchy version. My girls love animals so they always want any type of animal toy. My ten year old daughter really wants one of these.
Rebel Girls: This is on the top of MY list for the girls. This is a series of books featuring extraordinary women from the past and present. I love how this is illustrated too!
Echo dot: Ok these are so cool. I like the idea of kids getting a little independence. With the dot they get kid friendly content streaming to this device. Plus this version is also an alarm clock. My kids loving talking to Alexa, with this they can also listen to books on Audible. I have this in my Amazon cart right now because its currently $30 off!
The Sisters Grimm series: My sister-in-law read these when she was a girl and loved them. I think this would be a great gift for any girl into chapter books.
Fuji Instax camera: In my opinion this is an awesome gift for any kid. My 10 year old daughter brought this on our trip to NYC (see what we packed in this post here). It was fun for her to view things through the eye of a camera lens. If your child is artistic giving them a camera is a great way to explore their creative side through photography. This kit comes with all the fun things: stickers, colored film, different lenses and even a photo book.
Moon light: Okay I had to throw some home decor up in here you know! 🙂 I’m finishing up Pen’s room and we’re putting up this light. I love the moon (sleepy time vibes), the boho look, ambient lighting, and the fact that it doubles as wall art.
Ugg boots: I realize I have a lot of Ugg on here! But I do love a good pair of cozy boots. Ugg has so many cute ones out right now too. These shimmer pink ones are to die for, and if you’re daughter loves flippy sequin (who doesn’t) they have those too! I like ugg type boots for my kids because they look cute with everything and they’re easy on easy off. Rain gear would also make a great gift.
The Gizmo watch is also good present idea. With my kids different schedules and activities I’ve found this is a great way to communicate with them. I’m not a fan of giving kids smart phones so this was a solution that worked for our family. They can download up to ten phone numbers and can communicate with you by either texting or calling. It also has gps so it will alert me when she changes location.
Good luck shopping out there! And don’t forget to subscribe for your dose of weekly inspo delivered straight to your inbox!
