It’s the most wonderful time of year! I don’t know about you, but I LOVE this season of gifting. It’s so much fun to pick out something for the special people in my life. Some years I even pick out a little something for myself, too, but my true joy is in gifting others! I am partnering with Babbleboxx to share some fun gift ideas they put together for the whole family! (Hopefully no one of my gift list is peaking at this post!)

Also, I have included some great deals for you guys to help your holiday budget stretch a little further! As always, discount codes are marked in pink.

Something for Tech Lovers:

Aftershokz Trekz Air Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones:

I had the opportunity to try these out at the Run Disney expo awhile back and I was SO impressed with the technology. They are small and light and wrap around your head. You can listen to music or your favorite podcast privately while ALSO being able to clearly hear what’s going on around you. I’ve never experienced this before and they really work! It was amazing! If you have a tech lover in your life, these will for sure be a hit! They are small and have a nice zip-up carrying case so they are also a great gift for a traveler!

The Animal’s Companion by Jacky Colliss Harvey

This book tells the store of people & their pets and makes for a fun coffee table book, or something to curl up by the light of the tree with a cup full of hot chocolate! Inside you will find a collection of real animal stories and facts about animals from typical domestic pets to lions and more! It’s fun to read about people’s special animal relationships around the world and there are also some neat photos to look at.

Something for Grandparents:

Aura Analog Frame

If you know me, you know that my love language is family photos! I absolutely LOVE to capture memories of my kids and our adventures together as a family. It’s always fun to find ways to bring all of those digital photos to life through display in our home. This Aura Analog frame not only displays your favorite 5″x7″ photo, but it is included with a subscription for only $7.99/month where you can send your favorite photos to the app and receive 5 new printed photos each month! This elegantly-crafted frame made with white stone, has a built in storage compartment behind the photo display for all of your monthly photos to go in so you can swap them out whenever you like and always have your favorite on display!

The frame’s built-in storage can hold a full year’s worth of photos (60 prints) – making pictures more visible and easily accessible while also reducing household clutter.

You can invite the whole family to the app to share photos together! Each 5″x7″ print includes the photographer, date, and location on the back – helping bring those memories back to life.

This makes a great gift idea for loved ones far away so they can feel connected, and with the monthly subscription of 5 new photos, it’s truly the gift that keeps on giving and lets them know each month you are thinking of them! What a fun idea! (Also, if you’re thinking of gifting this, I thought I’d ad that it comes in a really nice box because I also appreciate quality packaging when I’m thinking about gift ideas!)I can’t wait to surprise someone in my family with this beautiful frame and monthly photos of the kids! Shhhh….. you’ll have to wait until Christmas!

Something for Her:

No Nonsense Soft & Breathable No Show Socks

You know how you’re an adult and sometimes you get excited about regular things. Socks are that for me! I love cute socks but I really love to get new practical socks because I feel like they go into the dryer and the just disappear? (Why are you leaving me? Come back!)

So these packs of socks are great because you can never have too many pairs of socks! They are also super soft and comfortable! Shop for socks here!

For the Kids:

Build-A-Bear Santa Bear

We have made some amazing memories with our boys creating our own stuffed animals at Build-a-Bear stores and I just love how soft and cuddly they are! This Santa bear is a fun little friend to get any child excited about the most wonderful time of year! It’s a great gift idea for children of all ages, and if he is stored with all of the Christmas items, it will be like a new surprise year after year when he comes out and they get to cuddle with him watching their favorite Christmas movies! I can’t wait to surprise my kids with him Friday morning! We have a movie + hot chocolate night planned and he will be a perfect fit!

Now at Build-a-Bear, your furry friend can look like Santa Claus himself with this adorable red stuffed animal Santa hat. Add a Santa hat to any furry friend for only $5 more to make a perfect Christmas gift for anyone on your list! This Santa hat can be personalized with one line of embroidery for an additional $10. Add a special name to make a holiday gift straight from the heart! It’s a classic Christmas gift that they’ll be able to keep for many Christmases to come.

For the Pets:

Charlee Bear Bearnola Bites + Grain-Free Meaty Bites

They say a dog is a man’s best friend and while I’ve never had a dog, I spent most of my life with a cat and I can truly say that pets are absolutely part of the family! If you DO have a dog, let me introduce you to Charlee Bear Bearnola Bites– blueberry pie flavor and Grain-Free Meaty Bites made with beef liver and apples. These tasty treat are all natural and infused with superfoods. They’re the first raw, freeze-dried meat treats infused with real fruit or veggies you can see! Just simple, whole food ingredients go into each treat – no fillers, soy or grains. Then they’re freeze dried to lock in nutrient value and flavor.

Only the best for your fubabies! Charlee Bear is a family-owned company and all of their treats are made in the USA! I also really LOVE their fun packaging! I will be gifting these to a dog in our family, so thanks, Charlee Bear!
