2016 Blogger Holiday Gift Guide

We are SO excited to finally share a SUPER exciting project we’ve been working on behind the scenes for the past few months (yes, months!). The idea to reach out to some of our favorite bloggers and invite them to collaborate on a Holiday Gift Guide was something we’ve been brainstorming for almost a year now.

Pretty Christmas presents, all wrapped up and ready for our Holiday Gift Guide 2016!!

In August, we promised ourselves that we would quit daydreaming and actually DO IT… and right then & there the first annual Blogger Holiday Gift Guide was born. We invited bloggers that we love and bloggers that we felt could bring a unique perspective to a specific gift category (i.e. gifts for the fashionista, gifts for the pet lovers, gifts for the fitness lover, the stay-at-home mom, the host, the DIY-er, etc) to share their favorite products in this “category”.

Holiday Gift Guide: Don't forget to wrap your gift | DIY PlaybookThis talented group of bloggers did just that. Together, each gift was hand-picked to create a comprehensive gift guide that all of our readers can browse through and hopefully find a perfect gift for the special people on their holiday shopping lists.

Because we were able to pick the brains of a group of people with different talents and passions, we think this Gift Guide has amazing (and affordable!!) ideas for just about everyone on your list (including the boys/men… thanks Katie Bower!). And not only did we want the gift guide to be diverse and affordable, we also wanted it to be straight forward and easy to read/click through.

All you need to do is press the full-screen button (it’s the little 4 corners image) in the bottom right corner of the image above and the Gift Guide will appear as a full-screen, interactive guide like this…

We know it’s a bit early for a gift guide but our hope is that providing these gift ideas EARLY will help you find the perfect gift for all those special people on your list. And let’s be honest, the LESS time we spend shopping, the more time we can spend enjoying the holidays with the amazing people in our lives.We can't wait for you to check out our 2016 Holiday Gift Guide! Merry Christmas!

A huge thank you to the ROCK STAR bloggers who have helped make our vision a reality. If you don’t know someone on this list, you HAVE to check them out because these blogs are the ones we read every single day and provide us so much inspiration!!
