Holiday Gift Guide: The Little Ones

Holiday Gifts for Kids

 

Today’s gift guide is for those cute little peanuts in our lives! I tried to cram as many of the best holiday gifts for kids into this post. I could have done a whole week of posts for kids. There are such good toys and clothes for all ages.

 

Lawson and Sybil LOVE their chairs. It’s a great gift idea for ages 1 and up. I bought Sybil this jacket (it’s less than $15 and absolutely adorable) and dress to wear during the holidays with this shirt and navy knee high socks.

 

Don’t tell him but Lawson is getting these pajamassneakers, blocks and scooter for Christmas. Add a book and I’m finished shopping for him already!

 

I really wanted to get a kitchen set for them this year, but we don’t have enough space in our apartment and I figured it would get banged up when we move next year anyway. They love to “help” me in the kitchen and have loved playing in the kitchen at different children’s museums. If you have the room, this is a great gift for toddler boys or girls!

 

How cute is this little dyson vacuum for kids??? Such a cute idea for the little helpers in your life. By the way, this dyson cordless vacuum is my favorite household appliance. I’m not normally one to suggest giving household items as gifts, but this one is that good.

 

What’s on your little ones wish list this year?

Holiday Gift Guide: Natural Lifestyle

Clean Beauty Gift Ideas

 

I know I should quit mentioning this serum, but it’s the holy grail of natural skincare winning tons of awards and a cult following. It’s an investment, but it’s cheaper than monthly facials or botox. Add this illuminating trio and you’ll give the gift of a natural, golden glow!

 

Anyone else get toothpaste in their stocking? My mom always included it, but maybe that’s because she was a dental hygienist. Once you start using a natural toothpaste, you’ll never be able to go back. I wish it came in travel sizes!

 

My girlfriends and I have had many discussions about the best natural deodorant and this one is a consensus winner. My mom approves too, which means it really is the best.

 

Okay, so this card case isn’t really a clean lifestyle item, but it is one of my favorite things by one of my favorite brand. I had to include it. The brand motto is fewer, but better things and that kind of aligns with a clean and minimal lifestyle, right???

 

Cote is a new to me brand of nail polish that’s free of 10 harsh chemicals and toxics. I bought two bottles of nail polish (#36 and #101) and have been really impressed. It goes on smooth and doesn’t chip easily. Their travel nail polish set is a great gift!

 

If you’re looking to pair a couple of items, give this face mask that smells so delicious you might want to eat it with a mask brush.

 

Other items that would make perfect gifts: a luxurious bath soak for the dry winter months, a pretty water bottle to stay hydrated, the stain remover that’s said to be the best for kid’s stains, wool dryer balls for your laundry (because dryer sheets are terrible for you), and the prettiest ceramic diffuser.

Holiday Gift Guide: My Wish List

 

In a rare occurrence, I’ve got a full week of posts for you this week to make sure you have gift ideas for all your favorite people before Black Friday. It’s 10 days away friends!

 

I have a feeling Santa is going to be good to me this year. I’ve been on my best behavior. Well except that time I lost my patience with the kids. Or the time I acted like a whiny toddler. Maybe I’ll have to buy these gifts for myself instead. :)

 

Today’s gift guide is everything on my holiday wish list this season. I’m almost finally finished with my current eye makeup and ready to switch to a cleaner version. This eyeshadow duo is perfect for my simplified routine.

 

I received this scarf in grey a few years ago and would love to add the navy version to my collection. You know, to wear with all my grey shirts and sweaters. #neutralsforever

 

Jim has a couple of Everlane cashmere sweaters and they’ve held up really well. I cannot stand itchy sweaters. So this navy cashmere sweater is on my list too. (To wear with my grey scarf of course!)

 

My mom is ahead of the curve when it comes to certain trends. She’s been raving about the instant pot for over a year and has tried numerous times to convince me. I kid you not, it has over 40,000 reviews on Amazon and averages 4.5 stars. I’m on board. P.S. Mom, I really need to listen to you sooner.

 

It never fails that a few favorites from J. Crew make my holiday wish list. This year I’ve got a beanie, festive pajamas and a pair of cargo pants on my list. I’m crossing my fingers they offer 40% off Thanksgiving week again this year.

 

I wear flats every single day. I can’t even be bothered with my booties most of the time. These sneakers are gorgeous. They’re an investment but I’d wear them all the time.

 

Other items on my holiday wish list this year, my favorite planner to keep me organized (that my brother already purchased for me), a luxe hair oil, the prettiest mini jewelry case that would be perfect for traveling, cozy socks to replace the pair I left in a hotel room last month and an always classic striped shirt.

Holiday Gift Guide: Little Luxuries

Holiday Gifts Under $50

 

The gift guides continue this week. These holiday gifts under $50 would be great for girlfriends, hostess gifts and co-workers (well except the bralette).

 

I’m convinced the Ilia lipgloss in Peek a Boo looks good on everyone. My friend and I have different skin tones and what looks amazing on her usually doesn’t work for me. Not this lipgloss, we both love it!

 

For your best girlfriends, give the gift of this amazing bralette. It is the most comfortable bra I’ve ever owned. Their undies aren’t bad either.

 

I consider Grace an expert when it comes to all beauty products, including natural. So when she raves about the Everyday Oil, I listen. This one is on my wish list too.

 

How pretty are these copper and marble cheese knives? They’d be a great hostess gift paired with the place card holders. Or grab these festive plates and add your favorite cookies.

 

If tacos aren’t your thing, this doormat also comes in a “you better have donuts” version too. Because who doesn’t love donuts???

 

A pill box may seem to be an unlikely gift, but it’s exactly the kind I like to give. A little unexpected and something you probably wouldn’t buy for yourself. Whether for you or your dog, it’s pretty enough to leave out on your counter and comes in 5 different colors.
