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 FavoritesCasey's favorites from the holiday gift guide

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…

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.

Bridget’s Gift Guide Favoritesgifts for couples in this gift guide

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…

Smart Outlets

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!

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.

Wool Socks

These wool socks are one of my favorite things but they make this list because they’re so good! Warm, wool, and stylish!!

Last-Minute Holiday GiftsLast-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!

Plush Slipper

These plush slippers look incredibly comfy, but they’re also good for your feet and have arch support!

Little Feminist Onesie

A quality onesie with a powerful message. Yes, please! You can check out their other phrases and messages right here (there are some great ones!).

Hopefully, this helped you check off those final names on that shopping list of yours! Good luck finding those last-minute holiday gifts, friends.
