Gift Guide

My final gift guide of the wintery holiday season and to wrap the whole shebang up, it is filled with a few gifts for that most gracious host/hostess of the party, maybe a secret Santa or a good friend. A lot of the gifts in the him or her guide would also be good, but why not throw in a few more options for the fun of it.

So tell me, have you started your shopping/making of gifts? What is the favorite gift you’ve bought (or thought to buy, if you haven’t started your shopping yet – like me) someone so far this year?

We are big on buying gifts that can be shared, used creatively and buying those gifts very purposefully (just those things they have been coveting). It’s really hard not to go crazy when shopping, there is something about shopping for kids that releases extra Christmas magic into the air (or something). Here is my Kids Holiday Gift Guide (toys for both boys and girls, cause in our house there is not much difference between the two); items to be shared, used creatively, worn, for active playtime, quiet time and just for fun.

Stocking stuffers, gifts for a little friend, grand kids or kids there are all there. But if you aren’t sure what they already have and would rather buy something totally unique why not try:

*A yearly pass to a museum or zoo. *Subscription to Kiwi Crate or Panache Box. *Movie Theater gift card. *Music, dance or sports lessons or a fun art or yoga class class.

Check out last years gift guides, here and here – they are still great for this year.

For your husband, boyfriend, father, brother or friend – here is our gift guide for him. It comes with a hefty amount of manly awesomeness, at different price points sure to be a hit with one (or all) of the men in your lives.

Time for Himself, and also a few items for him to share while unwinding with you or friends.

And a few gifts to combine with something above:

*Gift Card to rock climb, martial arts, yoga or just his local gym (only if he’s already been eyeing it). *A coupon book with coupons to pamper and for him to take a moment to himself.  *Gift Card for some workout, running or relaxing gear. *Pay in advance for some classes he has been wanting to take. *A bottle of his favorite scotch. *An instrument or maybe some lessons.

Treat Himself, buy him something he would probably never buy himself (but might always want to) or something he has been wanting/needing for some time.

*Gift Card to his favorite shop. *An electronic upgrade. *Home made beard oil. *Gift Card for a shave and a haircut (two bits). *Some tools. *Maybe even a video game. *A gift card for a massage. *An IOU for a date night (all planned out). *An IOU for a lunch date. *Update an electronic or computer program.

Check out last years gift guide, here.

A few items from Chris’ wishlist, but since we aren’t doing gifts for each other this year – I’m looking at doing a “just because” gift for him in the new year: these sneakers, apple tv, this whiskey, this bag, and these glasses.

*Many of the items on this gift list are also on my wish list, like that Detroit book and that ball cap – I would buy them as a joint gift for me and him (or at least that’s how they would end up).

Here come our holiday gift guides first up; for a friend, Mother, sister or maybe to share with someone who does the wife or girlfriend shopping (winks). Here is my list of things, that would make the perfect gift for her – followed by a list of non tangible items and some from the heart ones as well (because those are always the best).

Time for Herself, because it’s important and maybe she needs the reminder. Here are some cozy items for a reading moment, items to take with her en-route to yoga (or another class), or something to help her cooking addiction.

Also a few things that you can slip into an envelope or even better, make yourself (these might work good paired with an item above):

*Gift Card to a yoga, barre or workout studio (only if she has already been eyeing it, otherwise don’t do it!). *A homemade coupon book for things she deserves (nap, sleep in, bubble bath, a day to read, let someone cook for her, have someone else clean for her). *A day at the spa or a masseuse appointment. *A booked class for something she has been wanting to learn (cooking class, floral arranging, woodworking, learning a new computer program, photography…the options are endless).

Treat Her, well more like you treat her with something she would love or with something she can use to pamper herself throughout the year.

Also a few things that you can slip into an envelope (go for an item above paired with one below):

*A Gift Card to her favorite shop. *An IOU for a date night (all planned out). *An IOU for a lunch date. *Maybe include something she has been talking about needing or updating for a long time, treat her by doing it for her (pots and pans, computer program, an electronic, furniture items) *restock her favorite creams and potions (or buy a gift card so she can do this)

Check out last years gift guide, here cause it’s still pretty awesome.

*Chris and I decided not to gifts, we are going to buy each other extra food and booze instead (good deal, right?). But a few things I’m wish listing, maybe as a present from myself: wacom tablet, sneakers, these boots, this hat, this sweater and a camera lens.

sibling gift guide, toys to promote sharing, toys for kids to play together, sibling gifts

1.Rabbit & Raccoon Puppets – 2.Temporary Tattyoo‘s – 3.Go Fish – 4.Bowling Set – 5.Lego – 6.Snow Cone Maker – 7.Funny Faces – 8.This Moose Belongs To Be, Virgina Wolf, Mr And Mrs.Bunny – 9.Gone Fishing Game – 10.Marble Race – 11.Dominoes – 12.Mini Kitchen

For the most part we buy our two kids toys they can share and have fun enjoying together, rather then following the old two of everything rule. Sure there are always going to be those things that are just for one kiddo, and sometimes two of one thing just makes sense. But sharing really is caring and playing together is much more fun then playing alone – so here are some great gifts to buy for a family, or for your very own set of siblings.
