Want an easier way to shop for your family and friends?! You just found it! I created this ultimate Christmas gift guide to make shopping for the women, men, tween girls, and young girls in your life SO. MUCH. EASIER.! 

I also included a boutique with more fun ideas at the end of this post. Just an FYI: I have daughters, so I don’t know anything about what boy kiddos like … sorry bout that!

Post UPDATED Fall 2019. Affiliate links are used for your shopping convenience. Read my full disclosure policy here.

I originally published this post for Christmas 2018, BUT the ideas are timeless (and I still love each item) so I decided to update my ultimate Christmas gift guide for the Christmas 2019 season! If an item is no longer available, I’ve linked to a similar item. 

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS FOR WOMEN

One thing I MUST point out on the women’s gift list is the platter with the snowflake. If you aren’t familiar with Nora Fleming platters and minis, it’s time you learn about them!

These are a FABULOUS gift idea and are SO great for entertaining! You can change the ‘mini’ to meet any occasion. Learn more about the Nora Fleming options in 18 Practical Gifts for Women.

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS FOR MEN

So sorry about the PG-13 undies pic (it’s a model … not my husband)! Haha! My husband is obsessed with his Tommy Johns!

Supposedly these are the comfiest men’s undies available. I can only take his word on that one. Your hubby might want to give them a try too!

Read more about why I chose the other products in the boutique below!

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS FOR TWEEN GIRLS

If you have a tween girl to shop for, chances are she’ll like at least one thing on this list! All of this is approved by my own tween daughter … she owns most of it!

These gifts are perfect for a tween girl (ages 10-12). Another great idea (some parents will eye roll at this one) is CROCS! They are back (in style) in a big way with the tween girls!

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS FOR YOUNG GIRLS

This wooden barbie house is WAY better quality than your typical barbie dream house! Believe me, I know … we have both! 

The wooden house and the kitchen are HIGH-quality products! I’ve also included a fun (high-quality) grocery stand in the boutique at the end of this post.

If you have an avid young reader on your list, she or he will probably enjoy these series. Dory and Weird School Daze are my daughter’s go-to books!

BONUS GIFT GUIDE: COZY BOOTS 

I can honestly say that my girls get new boots just about every single Christmas … they always seem to outgrow the pair from the previous winter! They live in their Uggs and Emus over the winter months because we have VERY cold winters here in Illinois! 

Unfortunately, both girls have now grown out of the adorable kid styles, but this flower option and seafoam option still have a kid vibe for that kiddo that no longer fits into kid sizes!

WRAPPING IT UP (pun intended)

I hope you enjoyed my ultimate Christmas gift guide and that you were able to find a gift or two for the loved ones you are shopping for!

You can easily shop with the links above, or click on any image below to be redirected to the retailer website! I’ve added a few more surprises in the boutique below!

Merry Christmas (shopping)!

yes! I need this!

custom

I designed my own custom home from the ground up, inside and out. A home that is cozy, comfy, laid out perfectly for the way my family lives, and makes us happy every single day. Oh, and did I mention I did this all without blowing the budget?! 

Yep, it’s true. I’ve been there, done that, and actually lived through it … and you will too. Pinkie promise!
