Epic Gift Guides For Everyone on Your List

Friday, November 25, 2016

Hi everybody!  I hope ya'll had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Today is black Friday and many of us are getting a jump start on holiday shopping.  So I wanted to pop in today to share a few gift guides that I've found to be super helpful.  I'm never able to go out and shop on Black Friday because we are with family, but I always find a minute or two to do a bit of online shopping. There are tons of great deals out there & I'm planning to take full advantage of them this year. Happy shopping!

My family and I are huge Amazon fans.  We signed up for Prime a couple of years ago and never looked back.  We get to enjoy free shipping on Prime items, free music & movies.  To make it even more dangerous, we all have the Amazon app on our phones.  Needless to say, their gift guide is everything!  I could literally shop for everyone on my list in one place.  My uses the Chemex coffee pot (shown below) every day & his coffee tastes much better than mine.

When it comes to shopping online I always look for stores that offer free shipping & free returns. Nordstrom is famous for this which puts them at the top of my list.  You'll find gift guides for everybody on your list and most likely a goodie or two for yourself.  Another thing I love is that when I order cosmetics from Nordstrom, I'm always given the option of trying free samples.  I recently ordered Tory Burch parfum and was surprised to receive a free bag full of more than 20 samples!  By the way, we use our Bose speaker every day.

Etsy has always been a favorite place to shop.  I love that you can find unique hand made gifts and the art options never disappoint.  If you're shopping for someone who is difficult to shop for, you might find the Etsy gift guides helpful.

Each year my mil gives us the hot chocolate from Williams-Sonoma.  It is delicious let me tell you! I've started using WS for their great food selection as well as specialty cooking items for those who really enjoy cooking and entertaining.  Good balsamic vinegar and olive oil are always welcome here.



  1. I am not a Black Friday shopper as I think it would steal my Christmas spirit! BTW, I love the photo on this post.

  2. I managed to do some Black Friday damage yesterday:) Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
