    I am the most excited to give my husband his gifts. I always love how excited he gets when he opens them. His are also probably the easiest for me to pick out. I haven’t finished my Christmas shopping yet, hopefully I will finish tomorrow though.

    This year I’m most excited about giving my boyfriend a poster of all the NFL football stadiums on it. It’s a scratch off poster, so you can keep track of them as you visit them. I know he’s going to love it and we’ve gone to 3 of them together in the past year so I’m excited about future trips to see them! He’s really going to love it.

    I just wanted to say that I’ve been following you for about 3 years and I think you’re amazing. You’re so real and inspiring. I love watching your videos and reading your posts. You always make me feel more positive. I also have a severe gluten allergy so it’s nice to get recipes from you that I know will be delicious and are allergy friendly. Thank you for all that you do. I hope you have all of your holiday shopping done. I’m done shopping, but still have to wrap everything. Merry Christmas!

    My husband caved and bought our teenage boys airpods. They don’t think they will get them so I am excited to see their faces.
    As for what I want, nothing! We just got back from Disneyland (without our kids!) and that was our gift to each other. It was perfect!
    Have a great weekend!

    I wish I had this gift guide like a month ago haha! Definitely saving this for future ideas!

    I’m most excited to give some handmade gifts, my husband recently got into woodworking and he made tables for his parents, and beer flight paddles for my parents. I helped a little lol. It was a lot of work but they will be really special gifts!

    I am NOT done shopping, eek. Still need to get a few things and wrap everything up and make some food for parties but I’m taking a few vacation days so hopefully it won’t be too stressful!

    I’m hoping to get a gratitude journal that I added to my wishlist!

    1 & 2) Our family doesn’t do Christmas so it’s really a chill time of year/ day for us! That being said I love giving gifts so I usually make food/treats for people, or I give them a “coupon” where they can have me come make a meal for them at some point. It’s something they find useful and it’s something I love to do! x)

    3)What do YOU want for the holidays?
    No joke, I am simply excited to hang out with my brothers all day on Xmas. We are planning on throwing some food in crockpot, watching some movies aaaaaaaand that’s it. I couldn’t ask for anything better. x)

    I am all done holiday shopping and almost done wrapping! Just waiting for a couple of last minute gifts to come in so I can wrap those as well. I’m exchanging gifts with my husband this coming Saturday as we’ll be out of town on Christmas, so fingers crossed everything makes it in time!

    I’m all done with my Christmas shopping, and I am most excited to give my little niece a portable LEGO tray that we made her! They have to make long trips to and from their home to see family constantly and now she can play LEGOs in the car without making a mess.

    Hi Tara!

    Great ideas for Christmas gifts 🙂

    I already have all my gifts and the one I am the most excited for is the picture frame for my Grandma. I collected different pictures from all of her grandsons/grandaughters and her 🙂

    I can’t wait for her to see it and hang it in the living room!

    I am almost done with my Christmas shopping (on December 19th)! The last two gifts I need to get are for my mom and my dog. I know what I want for each, I just have to get out and get it! All of my other gifts I bought online, but these two items (a purse for mom and a new harness/leash for my pup) I feel like I need to see them in person to decide.

    Hi Taralynn!
    1) I am very excited to give my boyfriend a crock pot. He has wanted one for a long time and I can’t wait to make so many yummy meals with him. I am going to give it to him and fill it with bags of beans and lentils and spices.
    2) I am not done – waiting on one gift. My brother and my dad have birthdays around the holidays so it is a lot of present buying… hard to come up with so many ideas but this post sure does help.
    3) I love self care items like candles soaps stuff for bubble baths etc 🙂 all that makes me so happy

    I am very behind on holiday shopping….BUT luckily my husband, mother and I are just having a very small Christmas at my husband and I’s house this year between the 3 of us and we plan to keep it very low key, low stress.

      LOVE your gift ideas! Thank you for putting these together.

      I’m most excited to gift my husband his Maui Brewing bike jersey. It might sound so silly but we are a simple couple who normally don’t give gifts. He’s been super supportive of me and my career and deserves something more than the ordinary. Maui is where we had our honeymoon & he’s a fan of the brewery. A win win!

    I know it sounds soooo silly but I am most excited to give my son (he’s 12) this men’s small robe I got him. He didn’t ask for it but has grown out of his and he loves alll things microfibre and he’s almost as tall as me and I tried it on and it’s just like our Kate Spade blankets he’s in love with and has a giant hood and goes almost all the way to the floor. I just know he’s going to love it and because a total surprise I found at Winners (in Canada I think like your TJ Max? Like brand name stuff but mix and match so never know what you’ll find but so fun shopping?!).

    I’ve finished all but stocking stuffers like you wrote in previous blog post about CVS pharmacy 🤣!! And would love love Amazon gift card as I honestly just finished last gifts today through Amazon Prime!! I have Ménière’s disease (I had never heard of it before had it so no worries if you haven’t) so Amazon and online shopping is a lifesaver for me!! Especially because having to stop working and feel like worst mom to kiddo and dogs ever when they are stuck with just me and I can’t do what I love to at least I can still get there stuff like I always did!! Small thing but makes me feel like at least a bit of my old self even on sick days! And old me used to workout at least an hour a day obsessively and have always been Christmas obsessed!!! So may have to go without the workouts but don’t steal my Christmas obsession Ménière’s disease!!! No! 😊

    I didn’t ask for it as couldn’t find but you actually found for me on this list!!!! I wanted a fake fur leopard print coat!!!!! Think too late to ask for?!?! No joke I’ve been looking at winners haha and everhwhere but couldn’t find one I liked!! Hmmm who still may not have shopped 😏.

    Merry Christmas!! Thanks for the awesome ideas as always 🎄💗🎄💗🎄

I finished my Christmas shopping last weekend, so happy its done, I may have i brought more presents for my dogs then anyone one else in my family. have you completed yours?
    All i would like for Christmas is a week off work where I can jump into my kombi and head off on a summer road trip.

    I’m most excited to give my husband these wireless bone conducting headphones that I found. He loves running outside with music, so now he can do it but still stay situationally aware. He has no idea that I got these for him, so it will be a huge surprise.

    I got all done holiday shopping before Thanksgiving. Last year we did everything the week before because we had just moved, so this year I got done super early. Balance. =)

    Honestly, I wouldn’t care if I didn’t get anything. Good food and good company is all I want. =) Happy Holidays! xo

    I’m excited to give my friend the Harry Potter themed gifts I have. She’s getting a hot/cold tumbler with the Hufflepuff logo on it, Harry Potter Uno, homemade chocolate frogs, and homemade Fizzing Whizbeez!
    Amazingly, I’m shopping already! Usually I’m getting gifts a few days before Christmas still.
    The thing I wanted most was a new memory foam mattress, which my parents were awesome enough to get and let me have it early! Hellooooo sleep.

    Happy holidays!

    I gave the gift of an experience to my family. We are visiting Houston for the holidays and I bought each of us a “City Pass” so we can tour all the awesome museums there: zoo, aquarium, space, and children’s! It was kind of pricey for 4 adults and 1 child but the memories we will make will be priceless!

    The gift I’m most excited about giving is an idea I got from a Minimalist page. My eight year old nephew has SO many toys! So this year I’m giving him a box that has 12 envelopes in it – one for each month. Every month he gets to open an envelope and we get to go on the adventure that was written in it (ex. go rock climbing, amusement park pass, etc.). He’s obviously not going to be thrilled with it right away, but each month next year he’ll have a ‘new’ gift 🙂

    I’m done holiday shopping – thanks to Amazon! And I just want to spend the holiday with my family. We lost our Grandma this year to Alzheimer’s after a four year battle and I just want to be surrounded by loved ones for our first Christmas without her.

    Thanks so much for sharing your joy and your vulnerabilities. Brene Brown teaches wonderful things on the power of vulnerability so when you share a little bit of yourself more with us, I’m giving you a mental hug and high five. Happy holidays!

    When I was little, every year for Christmas I would ask my parents for a dog. My mom was a dog person and my dad was a cat person, so, as a result, I didn’t ever have a pet growing up. So, now at the age 29, this will be the first Christmas with my dog, Loki, who I rescued from a shelter in June! It has been exciting having a dog for the first time in my life and shopping for him this Christmas season. I can’t wait to give him his toys and treats Christmas morning!

    I am most excited for my boys to open their new tablets. Our school offers them educational games to play and they LOVE them. I cannot wait to see their faces!
    I am ALMOST done Christmas shopping. I only have our daycare provider and my boys bus diver to shop for.
    I want a new Aden and Anis muslin blanket for Christmas. They have an adult sized one and it is a DREAM! My current one is getting pretty worn.
    Have a Merry Christmas!

    I’m just going to answer all 3 😏 lol

    I’m super excited to give my sister a barefoot dreams blanket! She is big into influencers on “the gram”, so I know this is something she’ll love because she doesn’t have one! Plus.. it really is super soft.

    Not quite done shopping yet. Need to get stocking stuffers for Mark, and some bags of peanut m&m’s for my dad!

    I would like to get a pair of wireless earbuds for Christmas. I think it would make working out so much easier! Especially so that I don’t slap my phone off the treadmill from hitting the cord from my current earbuds 😂😂

    P.s. still loving Vlogmas 😊😊😊

    I’m most excited about giving gifts to my three year old son. He’s at such an exciting age and has become Star Wars obsessed. So all of the star wars things will make him light up for sure! I’m not quite done with all my shopping- just a few odds and ends to pick up still. I’m hoping to get some candles to add to my collection. I never seem to have enough! Happy holidays!
