2018 Holiday Gift Guides, Part 1: Decor Enthusiasts, Kids, New Moms + the Hostess

Well, the public has spoken (that’s you all), and I listened.

The other week I polled my Instagram audience to gage interest in holiday gifts guides, and an alarming number of you said, “Yes, please!”

So, here we are. Per your request, instead of one overwhelming post, I’ve divided the gift guides into a series of posts to go live over the next two weeks. Best part? Every item is under $50! In fact, a lot of these items are under $25! But you (or the gift receiver) would never know, because they are just THAT GOOD.

I’ve spent the last week poring over the Internet, reading product reviews and researching ALL THE THINGS to find the best of the best for you. So, instead of making this post even longer by explaining why a particular item was included in the roundup, I will let you find out for yourself by simply clicking on it. Just know that I personally either own or want every single item on the list.

Speaking of wanting gifts, I say this every year, but it bears repeating. In this household we don’t “do gifts” in the traditional sense of the word – not for birthdays, not for Christmas, not for wedding anniversaries (ours is next weekend!). So, it’s especially fun for me to put these guides together, if only because I get to experience the thrill of online holiday shopping without any of the stress (or damage to our bank account!).

Today, I’m sharing gift ideas curated for:

  • The Home Decor Enthusiast,
  • The Little Ones,
  • The New or Expecting Mom,
  • The Hostess.

To shop, simply click directly on each item, or use the links at the bottom of each roundup.
