All of the gifts...

 


I slacked on the gift guides this year. Once I started seeing the bajillion guides other people were posting, my eyes turned numb and I would scroll right past them. I felt totally overwhelmed. Gift giving is obviously very personal so my gift choices are obviously not going to be for everyone. Instead of doing a bunch of specific guides, I decided just to do one large one. I'm rounding up some gift ideas below and I'm also highlighting a few sales happening. After chatting with some of you over DMs it's clear that the hardest people to shop for: teachers (I mean don't they deserve just about everything right now?), mother and father in laws, and husbands! Most of what I linked below is included in some sort of sale by the way!

  • Let's start with teachers. So hard because we all appreciate them like no other, especially this year. I was actually a teacher in my past life- pre babies. My three sisters and my mom were also teachers. And yet we still struggle coming up with thoughtful teacher gifts. I've done everything from pretty toiletry cases, gift cards, candles (I know so typical but I'm a candle person-plus they can always regift-sorry if that seems wrong!), ornaments with a gift card, and so on. I think no matter what you end up giving, a nice note letting our teachers know how much we appreciate them is the most important. I think I did a poll last year asking my teacher readers what they actually wanted and to be honest, the answers were all over the place. Wine, giftcards, cash (!), were the most popular. 
  • Father/Father-in-law gift/and maybe even husband: This one only really works if he's a football fan but this coffee table book is pretty awesome and it's also pretty to look at. The NFL celebrated their 100th anniversary last year and this book is full of amazing moments from past games. This is a total dad gift- my husband actually has it and it's super comfortable. 
SALES //

Anthropologie: 40% off all clothing, 30% off shoes, 30% off beauty, 30% select home gifts. Anthro is such a great site to pick up little gifts you might need. I think it's a great place to find teacher gifts, too. If you are in need of winter boots- love these ones. SO comfortable and light weight. Love these jazzy slippers, this dress makes me think of Sea Ny. They have so many good yoga accessories from mats to blocks etc. Love this little beauty gift set- it would be a nice teacher gift!

Bloomingdale's:: take 25% off items marked. Love browsing their gift section for ideas. These ornaments are a cute idea for grandma and grandpa!
