The 5th Annual Holiday Gift Guide
It’s one of my favorite days of the holiday season…the day we launch our Holiday Gift Guide 2020! This is the fifth year of this annual tradition and this might be my favorite gift guide yet. (It has the cutest new addition – Rory!) 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!
We snapped these Christmas pictures back in October and Rory had a wonderful time trying to stick every single prop in her mouth. Ha! Taking photos with a baby is no joke. I typically put up the entire tree for these photoshoots, but this year I decided to keep it a bit simpler and I’m so happy I did. Rory really steals the show anyway!
What’s In This Year’s Gift Guide?
Similar to years past, we’ve organized the gift guide by theme. We have gifts for the home, seasonal gifts, gifts for a couple…even a quarantine life page! There is enough variety so you’ll be able to find items for everyone on your list! I made sure to include a variety of retailers this year too – women-owned businesses, BIPOC owned businesses, and many products where the proceeds benefit global artisans or wonderful charities.
Just like in year’s past, Finn and I 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.
Rory also gets her own favorites page and I have a “Mom & Baby” page. These were actually the easiest pages for me to fill because we use all of her items all day, every day!
Oh, and we also included a Winter Bucket List and a family recipe for peppermint bark. It’s a really good guide this year!
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 that particular product, so you can easily get all the details to buy it online right then and there. Or, you can simply click here and it will take you to a new browser for you to shop there!
I highly recommend that you view the gift guide in full-screen on your computer, instead of mobile device. That way, you can see and read everything easily! It will work on your phone, but you won’t have the same user experience.
Our Holiday Looks
I shared a sneak peek of a picture of Rory in her cute little outfit and got about a dozen DMs in two minutes asking for her clothing info. So I figured I should share the sources for everything!
Happy shopping, friends!
