The older my kids get, the more they love educational and STEM related gifts. My kids love things that they can build or do with their hands, and I am all about anything that will help their development and encourage learning in our home. I rounded up some great STEM gift ideas – some of which are on my kids wish list this year! Also, they are all available on Amazon prime!
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:
Valentine’s Day is THIS WEEK, y’all! I rounded up some of my favorite gift ideas for the entire family that are all available with prime shipping! Ryan and I don’t really do gifts on Valentine’s Day, but I feel like if we did, we would keep it pretty low key, so I tried to find things that are very budget friendly, but still make really great gifts! Some of these I have and love and others are on my personal wish list! Also, if you have a pregnant wifey or galentine this year, go ahead and buy her this. She will love you forever, trust me! Be sure to order your Valentine’s day gifts by EOD tomorrow to get them in time for the big day!
Valentine’s Day Gifts for the Family:
This has been a highly requested post by some of my IG followers and friends, so I am super excited to share this year’s Valentine’s day gift guide with you! I tend to struggle with Valentine’s Day because it is so soon after Christmas and Ryan and I don’t typically exchange gifts…other than candy. haha I never refuse candy! I have a hard time thinking of anything I really want or need this time of year, but I hope that you find some goodies to add to your wish list below! Feel free to send all husbands and boyfriends to this post! 😉
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!
Gift Ideas for New and Expecting Moms:
Stocking stuffers are possibly my favorite gifts to buy for Christmas! I love to get random but useful things for my family, or sneak big (little) surprises into their stockings so that just when they things they are finished opening gifts, there is still a big surprise waiting for them. I am sharing ideas for the entire family below, but be sure to check back because I am always finding more and adding to these guides! I hope you find some great goodies for the people you love most!
