Do you fancy yourself a good gift giver? I think it’s an art and one that hasn’t always come natural to me. Aaron is a great gift giver and so is my sister. I’ve learned a few things from them over the years about choosing the perfect gift. For starters, it doesn’t matter how much it costs if there was a lot of thought that went into it. Is there a story behind it or a reason that I’m going to love this gift in particular? Was there a significant moment or experience that happened while we were together? It doesn’t matter if it’s 2017’s hottest gift to receive, it just has to be useful or meaningful or special to me. This is our third year to publish one massive gift guide for just about everyone in your life and I have to say, it’s one of my favorite posts we publish all year. We put more and more thought and time into it each year. Texts and emails went out asking people what was on their list this year along with the scouring of at least 50 websites. We chose items that were prime-able when possible and from a myriad of price points starting at just $5. The under $25 category is one of my favorites, too. It’s perfect for neighbors, teachers, your favorite hostess and more. As we get older sometimes stocking stuffers are an after thought, but I do think it’s so fun to actually find sweet surprised in there on Christmas morning, so the under $25 category is great for that, too. Happy shopping friends!
