The 4th Annual Holiday Gift Guide
It’s one of my favorite days of the holiday season…the day we launch our holiday gift guide 2019! This is something Bridget and I started four years ago, and even though I am now writing this blog solo, there was no way I was going to stop one of my favorite blogging traditions. Every year, this guide is a huge labor of love! I logged many hours over the past two months compiling this list (along with Finn and our graphic designer, Kaitlyn), and I’m so happy that launch day is finally here!
Finn and I actually snapped these Christmas tree pictures back in September…that’s how early we start on this special tradition. You can view our 2016 guide here, our 2017 guide here, and our 2018 guide here.
What’s In This Year’s Gift Guide?
Similar to year’s past, we’ve organized the gift guide by theme. We have gifts for the home, seasonal gifts, gifts for a couple, so on and so forth. There is enough variety that you’ll be able to find items for everyone on your list! There’s also a “key” that you’ll find on page 3. There are little icons for items that we own and love, extra affordable gifts, and more.
Just like in year’s past, Finn and I also each shared a page with our favorite items. And let me tell you when we find items we love, we are passionate about them! So if a gift made one of our pages, you know it’s an item we use and love on a daily basis. Some of my favorite new finds of 2019 made my list!
I even polled my family and friends for some of their favorite items to fill the other pages. A majority of these items are on here for a reason…people we know use them and already love them!
How Do I Shop The Guide?
All you need to do is press the 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…
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. Or you can simply click here and it will go to a new browser for you to shop there!
We highly recommend that you view the gift guide in full-screen on your computer (instead of mobile), that way you can see and read everything easily! It will work on your phone, but won’t be the same user experience.
We hope you guys enjoy all of these holiday gift ideas. And better yet, we hope it comes in handy as you tackle that long shopping list!
Happy shopping, everyone!
