Holiday Gift Ideas {& What’s On Our Wish Lists}

holiday gift guide banner


Like all of you we’re getting into prime Christmas shopping mode. I prefer to do most of my shopping online, in front of my fire, with a glass of wine in hand, it’s just much less painful that way! Today we’re sharing a few of our favorite gift ideas if you need some ideas for family and friends this season.

Holiday Gift Ideas for everyone on your list this year

We’ve already shared 25 gift ideas from ETSY because we’re all about supporting small business owners, you can check all those out HERE. I also shared the gifts from my Favorite Things party, many of which would be great for a neighbor, teacher or friend, they are HERE.  And, today while we were at it, we couldn’t resist including a few things that are on our wish lists as well :) {Our posts include affiliate links see our full disclosure here}


I think these little jewelry boxes are so sweet, and are only $22 (with free shipping)– you can see them here.  Letters are limited so scoop one up while you still can! They come in turquoise and black too.



These lounge pants look perfect to spend a few days recovering from the holiday madness. They come in a ton of cute patterns too. You can find them here.




This watch is at the top of my wish list, it’s a great deal at just over $100 {during the extra 25% off sale right now}, it’s perfectly simple and classic.


This is a one size fits all gift, and these ponchos are so in style. This is perfect to wrap up in as the weather gets colder!


How fun is this Kate Spade Phone Case? At less than $30 it would be a great gift for all fun the ladies in your life.


This Michael Kors Poncho is also on my list–I love this style for comfort, and you can throw it on with leggings and boots and be comfortable but still look great.

If you aren’t looking for fashion ideas, here are some other things that make nice gifts.



These mugs are always a hit, I add some gourmet hot chocolate or coffee a tuck it into these cute mugs for friends, teachers or co-workers. Some cello wrap and a bow, and your all set with a cute gift.



For younger girls, my daughter  (age 7) is seriously into drawing and art. She’d love to get an art set like this, and I’d be thrilled to see what she could create with it.
