Our 2nd Annual Holiday Gift Guide

Good morning everyone! We are thrilled to bring you today’s post because it has been over a month in the making. We’re revealing our 2nd Annual Holiday Gift Guide!Welcome to our second annual gift guide!

Last year we debuted this idea for the first time…a magazine-style gift guide with ideas for everyone on your shopping list.

We got so much awesome feedback from readers saying we truly did help them with the overwhelming task of buying for a wide variety of people, so we figured we should put together another gift guide to help again this year.Finding the perfect gift can be a difficult task

We’ve both spent just about every weeknight over the last month combing the internet for the best deals out there. So many of the items in the gift guide are things we use ourselves or have gifted to people in the past. So you can rest assured that only the best of the best made its way onto this list.

Here's all you need, broken down by categorySimilar to last year, we’ve organized the gift guide by theme. We have gifts for the fashionista, seasonal gifts, gifts for a couple, so on and so forth.

Gifts for Him

New this year are 4 spreads showcasing favorites from both of us and our husbands.Matt's favorite items for himBecause we couldn’t help but give you some insight into our hand-picked favorites!Casey's favorites

Plus, we included a few recipes and holiday tips that we both practice in our homes during this season.

All you need to do is press OPEN BUTTON in the bottom right corner of the image above and the Gift Guide will appear as a full-screen, interactive guide like this…Home items for anyone

Then you can flip through the pages (just like a magazine!!) and when you click on the item you love, you will land on the exact website of this product so you can easily get all the details to pick it up later or buy it online right then and there. We highly recommend that you view the gift guide in full-screen, that way you can see and read everything easily!Our beautifully decorated dining room

This guide truly was a labor of love and if it can help make your gift shopping a tad bit easier, then all of our hard work will have been worth it! Because we can all agree that less time spent shopping for gifts = more time enjoying this special time of year.

Giving TuesdayRemember to give back in the holiday season as well- support charities on Giving Tuesday

It can be easy to get swept up in the “buy, buy, buy” mode of the holidays (especially on Cyber Monday!), but we want to remind everyone that tomorrow is Giving Tuesday. This day kicks off the charitable season when many focus on their end-of-year-giving.

If you’re looking to donate to a worthy cause, Casey’s mom Jan works for a non-profit organization called the Ignatian Spirituality Project, offering homeless men and women the opportunity to change their lives.
