No Place Like Home: Gift ideas for anyone who loves to decorate or is possibly setting up a new home. I’ve kept this guide fairly neutral (not too taste specific, with the exception of a little blue and white) and have included both the practical and the pretty. Whether it’s just a little something like glass soap dispensers or more of a splurge like a luxurious blanket, there are lots of options for making home better.
Treats for the Kitchen: Everyone likes little upgrades for their everyday kitchen routines–but why do I always feel guilty buying these kinds of things for myself? This guide includes both small and big treats for the kitchen, with everything from my favorite magnetic measuring spoons to a fresh bay leaf wreath that will make any kitchen smell amazing.
Only on Etsy: I always think of Etsy as stepping in to a local specialty shop. It’s a wonderful place to find unique gifts and support small businesses at the same time. I’ve included some book-related ideas, my favorite initial necklace and several more personalized options if you want to add a special touch to your gift.
Just a Little Something: Whether you’re looking for a quick hostess gift or something for a teacher or neighbor, I found small gifts that would be perfect given alone or tied up with a gift card. Just add some red ribbon and a cute gift tag. Some of these could work for lots of different occasions and are possibly worth buying several and tucking away extras for gifting later.
What the Kids Want: As crazy as it seems, fidgets seem to be the most popular toy at my house this year. . . (Can this trend please be over soon??) I included some classics and plenty of ideas to keep them busy and creative.
What the (Teenage) Kids Want: I speak from experience when I say buying gifts for teenagers is tough. I asked my oldest two for their suggestions and added a few of my own. They assured me that this list isn’t completely lame so there you have it. . . Basically, they like comfortable clothes, comfortable shoes and the latest/greatest gadgets.
