Last year, I kicked of my gift guide post by bragging about how I had all my Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving hit. This year? Not so much. Juni’s gifts are 95% done, but everyone else is still giftless. I’ve got some work to do!
If you’re like me and still have shopping to do, I’m hoping I can help you out today! Every year, I compile a list of my very favorite things I own—many of which might just make the perfect gift for someone on your list. Companies can’t pay to get on this list, and I only list products I own, love, and are proud to recommend. I’ve included a whole range of gifts—meaning hopefully there is an idea on this list for you regardless of who you’re buying for or what your budget is.
Worth noting: the vast majority of the links below are affiliate links. What’s that mean? Well, it means that if you click one of those links, and then end up purchasing something afterward, I get a small commission of your sale for referring you—at no extra cost to you. Buying your holiday gifts through affiliate links is a really painless way to help support your favorite bloggers. Your clicks are literally putting food on my table and keeping this website free, and for that, I am forever and always grateful. ❤️ Gosh, you guys are just the best.
Okay, onto my favorite things from this past year!
Woohoo! I hope you were able to find some fun ideas for your loved ones. And I hope you can find some *awesome* Cyber Monday deals today. Happy holidays everyone!

We love Oliver Jeffers! The Day the Crayons Quit and A Child of Books are favorites around here – I will have to check out the alphabet book!
I love this list…
Awesome list! I just put the cheese knives on my Amazon wish list.
I would just like to echo that Black and Decker Dustbuster. I received one for Christmas last year, and with an 18m old running around, we use it almost daily. I may or may not use it to vacuum my table before wiping it down . . .
I vacuum my cooktop before wiping it down!
I remember the first time I found assorted colored sharpies…..I felt like a little kid having a free-for=all in a candy shop! What an exciting day that was! I totally get it!
I love Apothic Red, there is now Apothic Crush which is also a great red blend! Great list!
I bought The Happy Planner after I read this post and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. I wish I could sit all day with it and work on pages.
I would absolutely love to see your planner spreads. Since you are a graphic designer I can only imagine how beautiful they are. Please consider doing a post or video on your planner tips and/or design.
Oh gosh, beautiful they are not! They are a hot mess of scribbles and post-it notes. :P
I just discovered your blog and I love it, but there’s too many ads and sponsors that makes it difficult to navigate. It takes me to pages I don’t want to see when I try to focus on the writing it scrolls me around the page and it doesn’t let me follow the note. I don’t know how many people experience this, or if it’s just me.
Oh no! I’m so sorry you’re having troubles. That DEFINITELY shouldn’t be happening. I have an entire team who works hard to try to keep those bad kinds of ads out of the loop, but sometimes they slip through the cracks. If you happen to come back (I hope you will!), and experience that same kind of mega-annoying experience, right click on the ad that’s causing problems, copy the URL, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Unfortunately, having that URL is the only way my ad management team can nix annoying ads like that. I wish it was easier! Again, my apologies!
Hi,Ijust copied down your healthy pumpkin pie smoothie,it looks so good and tasty that iI am going to make it in my magic bullet blender soon.
Can I use 2% natrel milk,almond,rice dream vanilla milk,or coconut milk in your smoothie?I am lactose intolerant so I can’t use regular milk in smoothies at all.I found a lactose free vanilla yogurt that I can put in your smoothie.
Can I use pumpkin sweet leaf drops in your smoothie?
I will let you know how much I love and enjoy drinking your smoothie after iI have made it in my blender and start drinking it OK Cassie.
Would it be OK to use half a frozen banana in your smoothie instead of a full banana,I am a diabetic and bananas put up my blood sugar.
Yes, use whatever milk or yogurt substitutes you need! If you use half a banana, it might be a thinner smoothie – perhaps try adding a little ice to replace the banana? It won’t be as creamy, but it will help with the thickness!
