Here are my 2023 Holiday Gift Guides – created by yours truly! Whew, these take sometime, but I truly LOVE doing them. I pour a lot into these gift giving guides and I hope that you find them helpful during the season!
My son, Henry (age 9) actually did the entire gift guide for little boys. He had so much fun searching the internet for items that he thinks kids would love. He linked, took screen shots and even helped to arrange the images onto the collage. He earned a book from his favorite series – Diary of a Wimpy Kid No Brainer.
As Oli has gotten older, she has gotten so much more creative! She’s either dancing or crafting and it was so fun for us to sit down together to compile a list of her favorite things, which are scattered across a few of the gift guides below.
John, my husband, is always one of the hardest people on my Christmas list. I spent the latter part of this year compiling things he has been eyeing as of lately, along with things he already owns and loves to make shopping for the men in your life easier than ever.
Year after year I find it harder and harder to find meaningful and useful gifts under $50. I have to say, this year’s guide is my favorite yet! Whether you’re shopping for stocking stuffers, gifts for friends or a favorite things party, I think you will find the perfect gift in this year’s collage! Pro tip- you should also check out the Under $25 guide and considering pairing a few items together to make the perfect little basket 🙂
You’ll find all these categories and more below with shoppable links beneath each collage. Gift guide season is one of my very favorite times of the year, and my hope is that these guides help you find the perfect gift for each person in your life.
Hope you enjoy and thanks for being here as always! xx, LRT
A collection of all things Oli, my daughter, would love to open this Christmas! I love gifting something you want (scooter or bracelet kit), something you need (new shoes or a suitcase), something to wear (a fun sweater or bathrobe) and something to read (a new book).
All things pink for toddler girls! How precious is this playhouse tent? My very favorite bows for little girls would make a great stocking stuffer. And how sweet would this piggy bank look on her bookshelf?!
When the kids were young, it was SO much fun to have a toy like this tractor under the tree on Christmas morning. For a younger toddler, this little airplane rocker is just the sweetest! This Cars game would be the perfect little stocking stuffer.
It’s so much fun to encourage my kids to lean into their creative side! Olive and her friends would be occupied for hours with this friendship bracelet kit! When our kids were younger, we had an easel similar to this one and we absolutely loved it. I love that this one has room for storage underneath- perfect for craft supplies!
I don’t think I’m alone in saying shopping for tween girls can be a challenge! However, I love gifting this age group skincare basics such as the Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen or a skincare fridge. I am also loving this printer that connects to her phone to print out all her favorite memories!
I always find it to be a fun challenge to gift our parents something either super meaningful or useful. For grandma, I love pulling something for her kitchen such as a utensil holder or unique baking dish. And for grandpa, leaning into his hobbies is always a hit. Whether he is an avid fisherman or dedicated gardener, it’s so fun to gift him something he wouldn’t necessarily purchase himself.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, shopping for the men in my life is always the hardest! If you have a golfing husband, try pairing this golf ball display with some custom golf balls! You could even add this Golf Course coffee table book and pop these golf themed bar tools in his stocking.
Sephora has so many really great holiday sets this year, and I am planning on gifting both this set and this set to friends this Christmas! Another fun option would be to pair this makeup bag with your favorite lip product.
Perfect “happies” for your co-workers, neighbors or to stuff those stockings. What better way to celebrate the season than with a Christmas candle, holiday cocktail recipe deck or a Christmas tree mug? For something less holiday-themed, I think it would be the cutest setup to gift this trinket dish paired with her favorite Anthro candle.
A gift guide that is so near and dear to my heart! We have been blessed with some of the very best teachers for my kiddos, and I feel like any gift will never fully reflect my appreciation for their impact in our lives. I typically gift them gift cards and then something something they can use in their everyday, like a Simplified Planner or a cute new lunch tote (paired with a gift card to their favorite lunch spot!) or even my favorite beauty products like the Living Proof Dry Shampoo or my favorite Caudalie mask!
I am dying over this plate set! Although it is on the pricier side, these plates would set the tone in any space you place them. Whether you’re using to set the perfect table scape (would be so cute paired with these glasses!) or your hanging them on your wall (maybe in a room with this coordinating accent pillow!), these plates will truly elevate any space.
