I think shopping for stocking stuffers is probably my favorite part of Christmas. Mixing the little needs with a few little surprises makes my heart happy. I also love shopping for this sort of this for my friends and dirty Santa gifts as well. These are all things that are on my personal list or that I already own and love!
I rounded up some of my favorite gift ideas under $50 for her! I tried to include something for every type of person…something for the hostess, cozy lover, entertainer, music-lover and more! A lot of these are also available for Amazon prime shipping. I definitely recommend you go ahead and try to finish up your online shopping ASAP so that your presents ship to you in time for Christmas.

Shop Gift Ideas:
This is my favorite gift guide every year because it is like putting together a wish list for myself and it is so fun! Some of these things I own and love and others are on my personal wish list (hint hint, Ryan)! I will be sharing more specific gifts in lower price points and stocking stuffer ideas in my next gift guides, but for now, here are my splurge-worthy items that are great ideas for the ladies in your life!
For me, men are the hardest to buy for. Let’s be honest, they know what they like and absolutely don’t like. haha I like to buy our dads and Ryan gifts that go along with their current hobbies so that I know the gift will be a winner. For example, Ryan loves to golf, so anything golf related is perfect for him and makes him excited. I also love to buy him a new pullover or jacket each year to add to his wardrobe and freshen his closet a little because he doesn’t typically buy clothes for himself very often. Think about what your husband or dad loves to do and then go from there. Here are some gift ideas for men!
Gift Ideas for Men:
I can’t believe the holiday season is here! I am so excited to bring you my gift guide for kids today! Let’s be honest, keeping the magic of the season alive and choosing the perfect gift for our kids is the best part of Christmas shopping, am I right? It’s always worth it to see their faces light up on Christmas morning or to see them feel so happy when they give a perfect give to a child in need. Kids are so fun to shop for.
Be sure to check back here because I will add to this guide as I find new things throughout the season. Also, be sure to follow along in the LTK app because I have already been posting exclusive holiday content and gift ideas there. Now, let’s get to the shopping fun!
Gift Guide for Kids:
I love Easter! Celebrating Christ’s risen is something I try to focus on all year, but this day in particular is always so special. I also love the idea of Easter baskets and playing the Easter bunny with my kids. Seeing their little faces light up is so sweet and special. I normally like to try and stick with a theme, but this year I am adding a few essentials that my kids need along with things like chalk, new crayons, etc. They each need different things, so they will be getting a good mixture of outdoor things, art supplies and essentials. I’m breaking down my Easter basket ideas for you below:
Where are my last minute shoppers at? I am right there with you! I still have a couple more things to grab before I am officially finished. Thank goodness for Amazon Prime, right? I asked you guys who you are still shopping for in my insta-stories over the weekend and you overwhelmingly said the men. This amazon prime gift guide has a few things for everyone on your list but I put a few extra ideas for the men in there for you! I tried to choose a couple of things for the traveler, hunter, tech guy, etc. I hope this is helpful and you find some great ideas for your loved ones!
Does anyone else stress over teacher gifts? I try not to, but I tend to be pretty last minute with these. Oops. I am hoping to be a little more on top of it this year, so I am rounding up a few things that I came across that would make great gifts for a teacher! Of course, the number one thing I am told by my teacher friends is that they love gift cards most of all. Gift cards are so helpful to them and let’s be honest, our teachers are really underpaid – especially considering all they do. Gift cards help make up for some of that. I normally like to gift a mug or notepad along with a gift card. A little something to open along with their gift card just seems so perfect for showing our sweet teachers how much we appreciate them!
A sweet friend of mine contacted me with the idea of putting together a guide for kids who struggle with Sensory Processing Disorder or other sensory issues and I thought it was an awesome idea! I can not take one bit of credit for this one because she picked all of these sensory gift ideas out after learning and going through her own experiences with one of her sons and OT. I absolutely love the idea of buying children any of these items rather than a toy that will clutter the playroom even more than it already is. Many of these would benefit any child. I absolutely love some of these ideas for my kids!
As an expecting mom for the 4th time, I thought it would be fun to put together a gift guide for my fellow new and expecting moms! This is such a fun and special time but can also be difficult, emotional and stressful. I know, I get it. Of course, I think the number one gift most new moms want is the gift of free babysitting, a nap, or a cleaning lady. Am I right? BUT, if you aren’t into those types of gifts, I have put together a great list of gift ideas that I own and love or things that are currently on my wishlist that any and every mom would love!
