Our 3rd Annual Holiday Gift Guide

We’ve been gearing up for this day for over a month and we can hardly believe it’s here…our 3rd annual gift guide! This magazine has been a labor of love from us both (plus, our husbands and our amazing graphic designer, Kaitlyn!) and we’re so relieved that launch day is finally here!DIY Playbook's annual gift guide In October, we polled you guys to get the scoop on what you wanted to see in this year’s gift guide (you can view our 2016 guide here, and our 2017 guide here). You guys specifically asked to see more holiday gift ideas for guys (our husbands were more than happy to share!), for parents/grandparents, and inexpensive gifts for acquaintances (like white elephant and coworker gifts!).a colorful gift guide We loved your input and definitely listened as we gathered items for this year’s gift guide. In fact, we added a whole page of white elephant gift ideas and another one with holiday gift ideas for mom/dad/grandma/grandpa!

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. Hopefully, there is enough variety that you’ll be able to find items for everyone on your list!

We also each shared a page with our favorite items from the past year. We had those husbands of ours gather their fave goodies, and we also joined in on the fun. And let us 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. gifts for everyone on your list
