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.




How darling are these coasters? I am slightly obsessed with Reese Witherspoon’s new store Draper James…it’s so fun. {be sure to sign up for the emails so you get discounts too 🙂 }



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.



My daughter saw these slippers when we popped into Pottery Barn Kids a few weeks ago and wanted to take them home right then and there, I somehow convinced her to leave without them, hinting that Santa might just leave some under the tree this year.

_9404436These pink Hunter Boots are on Christy’s daughter’s (age 12) wish list this year. She’s going to be darling in them 🙂


Both our girls {along with their mothers} love these classic books with the Rifle Paper covers.  They recently added Alice in Wonderland to the collection. This is one of my go-to gifts for the girls in our lives, it’s the perfect way to start a collection for a special young friend or relative.




I ordered my husband {clearly he doesn’t read our blog so I am safe to post this} this basic pullover because it’s the best of both worlds– it’s a sweatshirt as far as the material but it looks like a sweater. Fashion we can both agree on 🙂 Win!


The Art of Shaving Kit takes shaving to a whole new level {we recommend the lemon or the sandalwood scents}, and you can use the coupon code “LUX10BACK” for $10 off!



Always a hit and the pinnacle in drink technology, these Yeti tumblers are a great gift for the guy who is always on the move. These keep your drinks cold or hot for hours, and for an extra special gift order a monogram for it from our store HERE.  A portable cooler like this by YETI is also a good idea, they are essential for the ultimate tailgate, beach or boat trip.



91bMRhkspFL._SL1500_Ice that doesn’t water down a drink? Sounds like a smart idea! You can get Whiskey Rocks here–this is a cute stocking stuffer 🙂



If you can’t see going without real ice, these large cube trays make for better drinks since the ice melts more slowly {these are perfect to use in our homemade Whiskey Sour recipe HERE}.



If you have a golfer or a hunter {Christy and I each have one respectively} this range finder help them gauge how far their shot will be, improving their game, which always makes for happier sportsmen and that’s a good thing 🙂

OK, I am off to finish decorating! Happy shopping everyone!
