Happy Tuesday, friends! Today, I wanted to share my gift guides to help you find the perfect gift, or at least get some gift inspo, for the people in your life. I'm including stuff that we have and LOVE and stuff that we don't have, but wish we did! Every image is linked, and I hope you guys love it!!
Now that Jackson and I have been together a couple years, it's easy to think about what to get him for Christmas. It was difficult in the beginning of our relationship, however, because I had no idea what kind of stuff he would like! Hopefully, there's a little something on this list for every kind of guy out there!
We actually own everything on the top row of this section, haha! I actually own the Jord Frankie watch, since it's unisex, but it definitely has a more masculine look to it. I think it would be the perfect gift for the guy in your life! The Dolce & Gabanna Light blue is my favorite scent of both cologne and perfume. Jackson has the cologne and I have the perfume, and they're both incredible!
I got these slippers from Target for Jackson last year, because he was constantly wearing mine, and he absolutely loves them! He totally wore them into the grocery store last night, haha! I also really love this Mountaineer Brand beard balm. It's actually a Nashville brand, but they now sell it in Target! I bought this stuff for Jackson back in 2015 for Christmas, and we just recently had to throw it out because it was getting old, but we're going to get more because we loved it so much!
The stuff on the bottom row is stuff I'm thinking about getting Jackson for Christmas this year (Jackson stop reading, hahaha!) I'm obsessed with this leather weekender bag. Jackson has been using my bags when we travel ever since we moved in together (before that, he literally used his backpack) and I'm sure he's not the only guy out there without a solid weekend bag. The same goes with the socks and robe! Jackson loves my robe and all my fuzzy socks, so I know he could use his own. The apple watch isn't exactly something that Jackson needs, but it's such a special gift that I know anyone could use and appreciate!
I really wanted to dedicate some products towards people in newer relationships. A bluetooth speaker, beer making kit, or Yeti rambler is perfect for people who don't know the person they're shopping for very well. I also am obsessed with this Herschel Supply Co. backpack, but I probably wouldn't get it for Jackson, because he's not quite as metrosexual as he likes to think he is, haha. If the guy you're shopping for is more metrosexual, this backpack would be amazing!
For this section of the gift guide, I really focused on stuff that I either own and love, or really want to get my hands on! If you're wanting to get her something really cool, I would definitely consider the Barefoot Blonde hair extensions. I would recommend this only for someone that you know well, and who has stated that she would like hair extensions, because not everyone is into them!
Something that I really love is my french press. it's a long story, but I was able to get mine for free from Starbucks, but the one listed here has some of the top ratings on Amazon, and it has such a cool design! I make both coffee and loose tea in my french press, and I love how much I can make at one time. I also just love the process of heating the water in my kettle and pouring it into the french press. There's just something really special about this part of my morning routine.
I recently read about electric blankets that you can plug into your car, and i think this idea is genius. The air and heating in my car is absolutely terrible, so the idea of having an electric blanket to have on my morning drive to work sounds like such a dream.
I've been really into zodiac's lately, so I'm loving Urban Outfitter's zodiac options. The small container and simple gold necklace that I have listed are perfect delicate pieces for simple and small Christmas gifts. I was gifted a small, simple container last year for Christmas, and i really just didn't think that I was going to use it, but I've ended up loving it. I keep my necklace that I wear every day and my nice pearls in it, and the container is incredibly convenient to have.
Three items that I own and love on this list are the Milk and Honey book, the Thayer's witchazel, and the Biolage hair mask. I purchased Milk and Honey from Target earlier this year and made my way through the book in a little less than a week. I really love how easy of a read it is, but how significant the content is. It was something I loved having on my nightstand so I could read a little bit each night before going to bed. The witchazel and hair mask are essentials that I keep in my bathroom. I have pretty good skin, but I wanted to see what kind of difference this would make. If nothing else, the smell and the exfoliation I get from it makes using the product incredibly soothing. There's also a ton of reviews online claiming that the product really evens out skin tones.
For the Fur Baby
Shopping for my dog's is the best, because I'm always able to find the cutest stuff for them. The little hat I have listed here is specifically built for italian greyhounds, but I'm sure any kind of dog with that shape of face would be able to use it. I think I'm going to purchase this for Liam because his little ears get SO cold when he's outside.
We try to keep our dogs' teeth as clean as possible, because we've seen what happens when dog teeth rot, and we love this toothpaste and antlers that I have listed. I've been brushing Liam's teeth for years. Despite the fact that he will eat anything, he hated the flavor of the toothpaste. The toothpaste listed above completely changed the process of brushing his teeth, because he absolutely loves the flavor. It's a chicken flavor, so your pup's breath won't exactly be minty fresh. It's way better, however, than the nasty rotten smell that will occur if you don't brush your pups teeth!
The antlers are great for dogs to chew on, because it cleans their teeth naturally as they chew on them. We used to purchase cow bones for them, but Liam has food aggression problems, and he would always become incredibly possessive over the marrow inside the bones.
For the Chattanooga Local
While I like to keep my products as minimal as possible, I love these gifts that are personalized towards Chattanooga! I want to emphasize how great the ball cap is that I have above, because it's produced by a company called Hattanooga. I worked with Hattanooga over the summer, and really believe in their mission. Hattanooga donates a portion of all of their sales towards the Hamilton County School System, something that is desperately needed. The company also has beanies, so be sure to check them out!
I love these other Chattanooga-related gifts, as well. I'm thinking about getting Jackson this liquor glass with a map of Chattanooga, because I just love the way it looks. The framed Chattanooga poster, and the wooden Chattanooga sign would both also make great gifts for any Chattanooga local.
For The environmentalist
You guys know, me, so I just had to include a small section dedicated towards those who love the environment as much as I do! I've included the exact stainless steel straws and dryer balls that I own. I have a million water bottles, and love carrying them around with me so I don't have to purchase single-use plastic. Finally, I've included these adorable reusable grocery sacks. I have no less that twenty grocery sacks currently sitting in my trunk. Not only are they great for taking into grocery stores, but I shamelessly carry them when I'm shopping at places like TJ Maxx, the mall, or anywhere else that I might need a bag!
