Friends, Christmas is almost here! I can’t believe it. I wrote this post last year, but I seriously love a simple round up of some of my very favorite gifts to give because a lot of these work for anyone!
These are all things that I own and genuinely love so much, that I have to give them as gifts all the time. If you have not gotten on board yet with online photo books, you are seriously missing out. These are by far my best gifts every single year. I make them for family and for friends and they are always so touched because they know the time and effort that when into each book that was made. I am also a huge fan of Chatbooks for a simple way to make a book.
If you don’t own an Apple TV yet, where have you been? We are obsessed with ours and have multiples. You can rent/buy movies easily, use it for Netflix, and tons of other applications.
A fabulous gift for the grandparents or for hubby’s office??? The digital photo frame! I love this because you can add tons of photos all into one frame and they will play as a slideshow!
A wonderful splurge for men or woman?? Lululemon. This is always a wonderful gift because it’s such a luxury.
See more of my favorites below. What are your favorite gifts to give???
:: Lake Pajamas ::
These already made it on two other lists of mine so you are probably sick of hearing about them, but they are really THAT good.
:: Kindle Paperweight ::
– I keep swearing by this because it is actually what turned me on to reading again. It’s so lightweight that I just throw it in my bag to take it anywhere. I have the kindle app on my phone too which syncs to my paperweight if I want to read on the go. It makes downloading books so easy and I just love it even though I always thought I would be a hard copy girl.
:: Shutterfly Photobook ::
I have seriously been giving these for years and years now and call my self the family historian. They are always the most treasured gifts. They don’t have to cost a lot of money, but they can take a TON of time to make. It’s always worth it though to watch a friend of family look through it though. I also love to make coffee mugs and calendars with photos to give.
:: Amazon Alexa ::
Matt got this for Christmas from me last year and at first he opened it and thought, “what’s this?” A year later, he talks to Alexa every night and has her play all of his favorite music inside the house and out. If you know a music lover, this is a gift for them.
:: Cookbooks ::
This is always a great gift for friends and family who love good food. I have a pretty extensive cookbook collection and read them cover to cover. Some of my favorites are Barefoot Contessa, Pioneer Woman, Cravings, and Skinnytaste.
:: Kendra Scott Jewelry ::
She makes great jewelry, what can I say? I think every woman I know loves her stuff and it’s at a great price point. Earrings, bracelets and necklaces galore. Pick one up for someone and I promise they won’t be disappointed.
:: Lululemon ::
I think we are Lulu obsessed! All the girls will always ask for these and even some of the boys. Every girl loves a good pair of workout pants, so she will always smile over these!
:: Candles ::
:: Apple TV ::
This is another gift that I have been giving for years and I think I have now officially given one to every person in my entire family. Smart TV’s are great, but Apple TV is better. You can download movies right from iTunes and play them back on any of your apple devices. You can rent or buy and also have apps to Netflix, HBO, Hulu, YouTUbe and many many more.
How many thousands of photos do you have sitting on your computer that you can display around the house?? I think I’m up to about 30K! This gift is so nice for a spouse, grandparent or friend to display all the many pictures over the years. I love to use a USB stick, add the photos from my comp
