Gift Guide Favorites + Last-Minute Holiday Gifts
The countdown to Christmas is on…with a little over 2 weeks until the big day. We’ve both gotten a large chunk of our holiday shopping done, but there are still a few names left to cross off our lists. And a lot of the gifts that we’ve purchased have come from our holiday gift guide. There truly is something for everyone in there!
Shop our Gift 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. 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!
Here are some of our favorites from our holiday gift guide that we’re giving to our loved ones this season.
Casey’s Gift Guide Favorites
As I mentioned in this post, Finn and I are pretty organized when it comes to our holiday shopping. We have a google document that has the names of everyone we’re buying for. We then have a column for the budget, actual cost, the item we purchased, and if it’s been wrapped & shipped. We just add a new tab for every year, that way we can look back on gifts we’ve given in years past (to make sure we’re not gifting the same items over and over).
Here are some of the items we purchased from this year’s gift guide…
Dyson Vacuum Cleaner
My new Dyson was the best purchase I made all year, so I also got one for my mom. In fact, I even got her the V10 model (I have the V8). It’s a gift that any homeowner would love.Shop This
Jo Malone Diffuser
This is a gift I give year after year to the women in my life. It’s elegant and smells amazing. The perfect gift for a girlfriend, mom, or grandma.Shop This
Yes, this scarf is pricey…but the quality is top-notch. I got it for Finn (& actually gave it to him early!) and he is obsessed. It’s the softest thing he owns and he wears it every.single.day. Guys really only need one scarf, so it might as well be one that will last forever!Shop This
Faux Fur Throw
Every couch needs a cozy throw blanket and this one is a good one. I actually purchased one for my grandma (she just moved into a new apartment!) and I think she’ll love cozying up to it all winter long.Shop This
Bridget’s Gift Guide Favorites
I adopted Casey’s google doc strategy this year and I’ve been wondering all season why I haven’t done this sooner?! It’s been a game-changer in keeping our holiday shopping organized. And I’m even more excited that I can reference this list every year! Here are some of the gift guide items I bought or added to my wishlist this year…
Waffle Knit Beanie
A quality beanie is on my holiday wishlist this year and I’m loving this neutral gray one from the gift guide!Shop This
These smart outlets are one of Casey’s favorites things, and she convinced me that Matt and I need to add these to our wishlist too! There’s definitely a lot of room for a “smarter” house around here!Shop This
Book Of Me
Grandparents (or parents!) are so hard to buy for and these special books seem like a gift that will keep on giving for years and years (and even decades!) to come.Shop This
These wool socks are one of my favorite things but they make this list because they’re so good! Warm, wool, and stylish!!Shop This
I love this affordable sweatshirt so much, I bought it for a few ladies on my shopping list this year! Such a great piece for only $24!Shop This
Last-Minute Holiday Gifts
If you’re looking for more last-minute holiday gifts, we scoured Amazon for even more goodies. All of these should ship to you in time to wrap and prepare for Christmas day, and a lot of them are actually from Oprah’s Favorite Things!
These plush slippers look incredibly comfy, but they’re also good for your feet and have arch support!Shop This

Sheep Faux Fur Tote Bag
