The Ultimate Growing Gift Guide

The Ultimate Growing Gift Guide

My goal this year is to create the ultimate gift guide for you so that you can find the perfect gift for every person you love.

Gifting is my love language. Nailing the perfect gift for every person on my list is my favorite thing EVER!

I want you to be able to enjoy the holidays & nail the perfect gift which I why I created this guide for you. 

I asked all my girlfriends what they wanted and what their kids wanted to make sure these lists are 100% winners.

Cyber Monday Deals

Altr'd State is one of my favorite shops but it is usually a bit out of my price range so only for special occasion or splurges. 

Their Cyber Monday Sale is buy one, get one free for sweaters, jackets, and graphic tees. That makes most of their:

sweaters $35 each

jackets $50 each

graphic tees $25 each

Stocking Stuffer Deals 

There are more stocking stuffers through out the post under each category, but here are a few on sale today!

The best stocking stuffers are practical, under $15, and fit in a stocking but fill it quick. 

Also a rolled up tee shirt fits in a stocking and fills it up QUICK! There are lots of tees linked below for everyone on your list.

Gifts for Men

So many of you said the men in your life are the hardest to buy for. Men are typical practical in my experience, because of that my general rule of thumb is to buy them something they love/enjoy but the elevated or luxury version.

For Eric and my dad that is fancy cigars & whiskey. But I have some more ideas below that are all approved by Eric.

Sensory Bin

My friend Kylee makes these AMAZING sensory bins. Sensory bins were my secret weapon when my kids were little. Once the learn the rule, materials stay in the bin, this is a gift for you and your kids. I gave one away on my stories and you could hear Reagan in the background saying she still wants to play with them, I just don't make them anymore (because she is busy with friends and out grew them).

Stocking Stuffers for Girls 5-9

I ordered the sticker and chill book for Reagan's stocking, it ain't gonna fit. It is fun and she will love it, but probably not a stocking stuffer after all.

Gifts for Teachers

If you want to give your child's teacher a gift, PLEASE send them this questionnaire.

I am going to say what no teacher will say, the cutesy gift that is "teacher" themed is darling, but no thank you. And no one needs another teacher bag, mug, or water bottle.

The person who spends 4-6 hours a day with your child each day is worthy of you knowing where they like to shop and eat.

Teachers love gift cards! And then you can dress it up a little with a cute Christmas item, their favorite candy, and some pretty ribbon.

Disclaimer - Teacher gifts are not a must. I taught a population who was stretching their budget to buy chocolates from the dollar tree and I was so grateful for anything I got, especially a hand written thank you note. This tip is for someone who is choosing to budget for a Christmas gift, buy something the the teacher actually wants so your gift doesn't go to waste.
