The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide

Happy Thanksgiving, Eve, my friends! I have rounded up my holiday gift picks and am sharing them with you today just in time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I have spent many hours scouring the internet for the best deals and unique gifts, so I hope you find them helpful as you begin your holiday shopping.

Many of these items we already have and love, and I was sure to let you know which ones those are so that you know they are tried-and-true!

I will be adding more items and deals as I see them pop up, so check back often! And if you need to send a little hint to a loved one, feel free to share! ūüėČ

Gifts for Her 

Pom Pom Beanies

I am seeing these everywhere and think they would make a great gift! Tons of styles, too.

Instant Pot 

So many people are on the Instant Pot wagon. Why not make life a little easier with quicker meals?!

I don’t have any slippers, but my husband recently got a pair and I admit I am a little jealous. After looking around, these seem affordable,¬† super cozy and have great reviews.


Fiddle Fig Tree 

It’s annoying how expensive these faux plants are, but gosh, I just love the look of them so much. Home decor is my favorite thing to splurge on, and I deem these worthy of being added to your Christmas list. :)

Use code Holiday25 by TODAY for an extra 25% off your ENTIRE PURCHASE from this store! AND, use code FURNSALE for 40% off all furniture, ending Sunday!


Kate Spade Earrings

These are the perfect combination of simple and unique and would make for a great gift!



I have had my eye on these jammies for quite some time. They also make a pants version, but I am hesitant due to my height, plus I am a warm sleeper, so I think this version is the one for me!


Capri Blue


This is THE best-smelling lotion! Trust me. If you are looking for a teacher gift, or a gift for someone you aren’t sure what to buy for, this is the stuff. I keep it in my purse and in my bathroom.

Sorel Riding Boots 

These are a total splurge. But my goodness, I wear them ALL the time and receive so many compliments on them. My husband gave me a pair for my 30th birthday three years ago and I still love them just as much now as I did then.


Faux Olive Wreath

I think you could probably keep this up year-round and it would go with just about everything.


Pampered Chef Mix N Chop

My friend once told me this kitchen tool is a game changer for breaking up hamburger meat. SOLD!

Clever Cutter

I just used this to chop all of our veggies for our Thanksgiving dinner and it was amazing! Knife and cutting board in one!

Lash Boost

This stuff actually works. Below are my results from using it, and if interested in trying for yourself, let me know! I am also about to start using the Bright Eye cream. Sick season is upon us and I am going to need all of the help I can get!

The first pic is before using Lashboost. The second is after, and the third is with mascara.


Faux Fur Hooded Jacket

This is more than half off and looks just like my favorite coat!


Martha Stewart Throw 

AND, I just saw this store has a code out for 20% off with code HURRY (Not applicable on doorbuster deals)

These are on INSANE sale right now!


T3 Hair Dryer

Two friends have recently raved about this blow dryer. I am definitely curious!


Time Marker Water Bottle 

I am horrible at drinking water. As in, I think some days I go without drinking any. I know! You’re cringing. So, I did just order myself this water bottle to help keep me on track.

GAP Sweater

GAP started their Black Friday Sale early and EVERY. SINGLE. THING is 50% off! Use code BLKFRIDAY.



Oye. These things are so pricey. And I was against getting one… at first. Now, I run it every single day and LOVE. IT. We have it programmed to turn on when we leave the house, and it’s done by the time we return. It vacuums so well it even leaves lines on our carpet. I feel like this could be a whole post on its own. And, this is the cheapest I found this version, which my husband insisted on.


Ninja Coffee Bar

This is 65% off right now with code SAVEBIG15 AND you get an extra $15 in-store cash. Winning! This thing lets you brew various amounts, specialty drinks like over-ice and layered and is made for convenience.


Monogrammed Pendant Necklace

I love this necklace! Simple, yet makes a statement. Great gift!



Everything an extra 20% off!

My husband randomly got this about a year ago and I couldn’t believe how cool it was. We were fighting over it, and at only $10 it is such a steal!

These are probably one of my husband’s prized possessions. The case charges them, they are wireless and apparently amazing quality.

    These are really good ideas, some I like a lot more than others. Can Jam is an amazing game, I recently purchased it after playing it a few years in a row.

  7. Those pom pom beanies are the cutest thing!
