Holiday Gift Guides (For Him & Her)

Happy Holidays! I seriously love this time of year and actually love buying gifts for others. Last year I kept bragging to my family how much thought I put into all their presents and they were like, “Yea, Kate. We all did.” I kept telling them, “No seriously! How perfect is this for you!!? I am sooo good!” I then stand there like an idiot as they open their gifts because I’m so excited. My daughter gets gifts early because I can hardly wait. Ok, so maybe we all really like to think we are awesome at giving gifts, so let me just pretend here, ok? I have gathered up some of my favorite items as a gift guide for him or her.  In a few days, I will post another gift guide for toddler girls/boys. If there are specifics you guys are wanting, please let me know!


Ok, my thoughts are these are gift ideas for your husband, boyfriend, dad, brother, and son. I actually bought a few of these items for my husband for his birthday last week (#1, #2, #4).Web

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 |8 | 9 | 10 |11| 12

Leather Journal $36: My husband jots lots of information down and prefers a pad and paper to his phone. This journal has a removable lined paper notebook, so it’s easy to refill once the (included) one is full. He likes to write, so this journal is a perfect gift for him and I love the masculine look of the genuine leather.

Northface Pullover $79: A great gift for the casual yet professional guy in your life. My husband wears these pullovers over a nice button-up shirt for work and under a t-shirt on the weekends. Great gift for your dad, husband, son, brother…etc.

Trunk Organizer $33: This trunk organizer is helpful for anyone who travels for work or just has messy kids that play lots of sports ?

Men’s Shaver $43: I love a little stubble on my husband and this shaver specializes in stubble and has some great reviews. I just ordered this one for him.

Beard Grooming $30: Does your man have a beard? This grooming set includes beard oil, balm, scissors, and a comb. My older brother needs this.

Golf Organizer $55: Are you ruining golf clubs after they repeatedly get knocked over in the garage? This helps keep the golfer in your family organized with individual compartments for shoes, bags, clubs, and accessories.

YETI Cooler $200: This is the best cooler! ‘Nuff said.

JORD Wooden Watch $230: This is such a good looking watch! Why can’t my husband like them??? A guy always looks put together with a nice watch on. 🙂

Engraved Liquor Decanter $79: This looks great in a home office or on a bar cart. This is perfect for anyone who likes a nice bourbon.

Keurig Coffee Maker $129: I love this in navy blue and can definitely see this as a gift for a single brother or a son who just got his first place.

Steel Knife Set $58: For the chef who (hopefully) likes to cook for you. These are stainless steel with a lifetime warranty!

Leather Duffel Bag $102: This is so handsome. I love a soft, brown buttery leather! I would carry this ?


This gift guide for the ladies has several items on my own wish list! The La vie est belle perfume is my absolute favorite scent and I swear by the lash lengthening conditioner, although whether or not it’s a good “gift” is debatable. #whatareyoutryingtosay?


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 

Gold Arched Mirror $323: I love, love, love this mirror. I want to put this in my half bathroom! It’s a bit pricey for a gift but it sure is pretty.

La Vie Est Belle Perfume by Lancome $95: This is my absolute favorite and I’ve worn it now for a few years. Smells so good!!

Ugg Leather Bow Slippers $120: These slippers are definitely on my list. I love slippers so much and wear them year round. These look especially cozy in the colder months and I love that they have a rubber sole if you need to run outside…or to the gas station. Don’t judge.

Tory Burch Sunglasses $89: I love the classic style of these!

Beverage Fridge: $273 We are adding this to our pantry next year (stay tuned for the makeover sometime in 2019). But how nice would it be to keep soda and juice boxes in a separate refrigerator for convenience? Not to mention saving space in an often crowded fridge!

Le Creuset French Press $70: Coffee anyone? Yes. And this is so cute you can leave it out all the time.

3 Light Pendant $139!!!!: This is gorgeous–and at this price?! I love it for a small foyer or 2 pendants over the kitchen island. Such a statement and even has a clickable coupon to save $7 dollars. This is the kind of gift you casually show your husband, “Oh, this is pretty! And wow, just $139? Sure would look great in our kitchen.” However, my husband will tell you I am not at all casual or subtle about things I want. I do try, I’m just not good at the whole subtle thing.  🙂

Revitalash Eyelash Conditioner $105: This stuff seriously works! I have been using it for years and will probably buy it for the rest of my life. However, it’s a tricky “gift” to give. Is it considered rude? As in, anyone you give it to will be like, “so you think I have stubby short eyelashes? Thanks.” Unless that person is me, in which case I’d be pumped. Lol So chose the recipient wisely, like your sister, best friend….or yourself 🙂

Blush Pink 3 Piece Luggage Set $189: This is pretty without being overly girly or childlike. Although, I would totally pack my toddlers clothes in the smallest one.

Girl, Wash Your Face $10.50: This book is an easy read and pretty funny on several relatable topics. Encourages you to laugh at yourself and know you’re not alone in the embarrassing/silly/cringe-worthy moments we have all experienced.

Well, that sums up the gift guide for now but I plan to get more specific with what to get the geek in your life, the person who already has everything and best gifts under $20. Happy shopping!

    The leather journal is more much more affordable than I would have guessed. What a great idea! Love that it’s refillable.
