The Ultimate Under $100 Gift Guide

I am a big advocate of knowing your strengths. In life, in athletics, and in business it just helps if you know what you’re good at and know where you need help. For instance, I’m good at entertaining and mediocre-at-best at cooking. Therefore, I cater my food and focusing on wowing my guests with decor and yummy appetizers. When it comes to blogging do you know what my #1 strength is? Gift guides.

I don’t mean to brag but I am an excellent finder of gifts. Maybe it’s my OCD nature, maybe it’s my critical nature, or maybe it’s just my love language. Whatever the cause, you better bet your bottom dollar that I will find the gifts that people actually want under the tree. Today, I am honored to leverage my shopping skills and partner with the best retailer in the business, Nordstrom, to bring you the ULTIMATE Under $100 Gift Guide. I’m honestly giddy with excitement for you to keep reading.

Nordstrom is my top choice for buying holiday gifts for everyone on my list. I love that I can go to Nordstrom.com and buy all the gifts I need, while racking up rewards! I always knock out the majority of my shopping in one day and select it as my Triple Points Day with my Nordstrom Card. Even if you don’t have the Nordstrom Card and all of the benefits that come with it, like complimentary curbside pickup, you can still get free shipping and free returns and the luxury or ordering online and picking up in-store. Here are a few of the Christmas gifts I’ve already purchased from Nordstrom this year!

11 Gifts I Picked Up This Year

Juno Valentine Book // Nordstrom has a ton of books for little ones! I bought this Juno Valentine Book mostly because it’s written by Eva Chen, the fashion director at Instagram. My girls also LOVE Uni the Unicorn and it would make a great gift for any little girl on your list.

You*Niverse Craft Kit // Nordstrom the… craft store? Yes, you heard that right. Nordstrom has an entire selection of craft & art kits. My girls absolutely love any kind of bracelet, slime or drawing kit and Nordstrom carries them all! Any retailer that saves me a trip into a craft store during the holidays is a friend of mine.

Kiehl’s Men’s Travel Set // I always pick up a travel or grooming kit for Zach. It’s a great filler present that is something they would never buy for themselves but will 100% use.

Estee Lauder Gift Set // My mom LOVES Estee Lauder and this year I bought her this Repair & Renew kit. Sorry mom for ruining the surprise but you’re welcome in advance for the glowing skin.

Bobbi Brown Nude Lip Gloss Kit // If you have a mother-in-law, aunt or sister-in-law that is tough to buy for then I highly suggest this Bobbi Brown nude lipgloss kit. It doesn’t matter what their “go-to” shade is because a nude lipgloss layers perfectly over everything. Plus, Bobbi Brown is one of the most luxurious beauty brands out there. This gift will be a hit!

Cubebot // Ok this is super cool and would make a great stocking stuffer for any kid! Inspired by Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, the Cubebot can hold dozens of poses and folds neatly back into a cube. THIS. IS. THE. PERFECT. GIFT. FOR. KIDS. WHO. TRAVEL. I might buy 4.

Unicorn Shoulder Bag // This is another gift that is always up my sleeve! If you have a daughter, grandaughter or a niece then buy them one of these cute bags! You can fill it with their favorite candy, some cheap lipgloss or some play makeup and they will LOVE it!

Laura Mercier Travel Kit // Confession, this one is for me. I love Laura Mercier and anything travel sized. This kit contains a travel-size Translucent Loose Setting Powder, a travel-size foundation primer in Radiance and a travel-size Caviar Stick Eye Color in Rosegold and Au Naturel. If you are looking for a gift that will wow for less than $50, this is a great option!

Anthropologie Capri Blue Mini Candle // If you are going to a Secret Santa party anytime soon then pick this up and thank me later. It smells heavenly!

Kiehl’s Full Size Lip Balm Set // Another kit that you can’t go wrong with! You could package it up with gloves, a pom-pom hat and a scarf for a winter-themed gift.

Slip Pillowcase // I think this is another great gift that would be well received by any female on your list. Not everybody is going to buy themselves an $85 pillow case crafted from pure silk, but they would enjoy the benefits. This pillowcase is recommended by dermatologists, plastic surgeons and hairdressers because the silk fibers are significantly less absorbent than many other fibers which helps to keep your skin’s moisture and expensive face and hair products where they belong—on your face and hair, not your pillow.

Juno Valentine Book // You*Niverse Craft Kit // Kiehl’s Men’s Travel Set // Estee Lauder Gift Set // Bobbi Brown Nude Lip Gloss Kit // Cubebot // Unicorn Shoulder Bag // Laura Mercier Travel Kit // Anthropologie Capri Blue Mini Candle // Kiehl’s Full Size Lip Balm Set // Slip Pillowcase

5 of My Favorite Gift Categories at Nordstrom

If you are looking for more ideas for everyone on your list, here are a few more categories of gifts from Nordstrom that I LOVE to give!

Packing Cubes, Luggage & Travel Accessories // Buying packing cubes or travel accessories is another thing someone would love but not necessarily buy for themselves. This is a fantastic option for the jetsetter. Bonus points if you include a gift card, plane ticket or brochure of an upcoming trip inside. Hint , hint husbands.

Patagonia Anything // Who doesn’t love a new pullover or vest? Nordstrom’s exchanges and returns make switching out the size or exchanging for a new color effortless!

Beauty Kits // I love this category so much that I made an entire post about it. **this is linked to a blog post from last year**

Tucker & Tate Kids // If you have kids on your list that you want to buy clothes from, just buy Tucker & Tate & thank me later! This brand, Crewcuts for Kids <*link not working* Peek and Mini Boden are my favorite brands for little girls at Nordstrom!

Electronics & Accessories // Nordstrom has a great selection of chic tech items like these headphones for little girls, external batteries <*no longer available @ nordstrom* and airpod covers. To date, Zach’s wireless earbuds are probably his favorite gift from me.

My J.Crew Chambray Shirt would make another great gift for any female on your list!

    I love your guide for men this year! I’m stumped on what to get my BF for Christmas so this helps a lot!

  2. Ashley says:

    You really are the best at these gift guides! Thank you for investing so much thought, time, and effort! My niece will love that sweet, little unicorn purse!

    • Alysa Mastrud says:

      My husband is an avid hunter and I am not so he tends to get me things I don’t actually want, bless his heart though. This year I asked for a Dutch oven but a pretty one. I also will never turn down a shopping spree because mama needs some new jeans.

      • Carissa nieves says:

        Anything David Yurman is always a winner for me!

        • Lindsay Rease says:

          I really want a Yeti coffee mug! Currently using a Zak one from Target and it works fine but its chipping and I sometimes find paint chips in my coffee 🙁 but the Yeti mug has a silicone covering and it comes in pretty colors!

      • Cortney Roseberry says:

        I love all your gift ideas for little girls! Thank you for sharing your adorable family and for all the hard work you put in to make shopping so easy for me! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.

    • Bailley Lewandowski says:

      A cozy robe!!

      • Elizabeth says:

        Wireless earbuds so I can listen to true crime podcast while folding the never ending laundry piles!

      • Holden says:

        Thai year I asked for kitchen things, new 5 piece ninja and simple baking sheets. It’s like an everyone present because they all benefit if I have better cooking utensils!!

      • Katie says:

        I’d like to totally redo my bed; new sheets, duvet, and all the comfy, pretty pillows!

    • Melissa says:

      My husband gifted me an air fryer for Christmas last year. Not the most glamorous gift BUT he actually paid attention to something I said I would like to have one day.

    • Deana Hagan says:

      My husband and I are planning on gifting each other with the new Miele Coffee Maker you featured! 🙂

  3. Beth Marshall says:

    i really appreciate the gift ideas for teens. they can be hard to buy for!

  4. SarAh KeiStler says:

    Gold bangle from the yearly company. Simple and classic!

  5. Rebecca says:

    Sippers, a cozy robe and wine. 🤣

    • MElissa campau says:

      My birthday is in December also so my poor husband has to deal with my birthday and Christmas. I have been thinking of a dutch oven but really don’t know what to look for in one and what brand is best. Definitely checking out your gift guides! Thanks for all the work you put into them!

  6. Taylor says:

    Canada Goode jacket!

    • Mackenzie says:

      Swarovski Bella earrings
      Silk Pillow Case
      Planned/booked vacation

    • Gianna says:

      Can’t wait for the “what your wife really wants” post so I can slyly send it to the hubby 😉 Honeslty thinking about Vince Camuto booties or T3 curling iron

    • Amy harmon says:

      Your guides are amazing! Nordstrom is one of my favorite places to shop too, so picking out a few gifts from these lists will be very easy! This year I’d love the hourglass palette that I missed out on during the Sephora sale, a silk pillowcase, and I always love getting a cute new pair of boots too! I’ll never turn down a spa gift card to use on a massage or facial either!

      • Krystal says:

        Honestly, I love when my husband gets me things I’ve casually discussed wanting – I think it’s super sweet! That being said, I really want a pair of cozy house slippers (like the Ugg bootie slippers or Minnetonka moccasin version), luxurious bath products (the kind that make me cringe at the price but would be so indulgent and lovely to enjoy), or a fun evening out at a show or at a cooking class. Love doing things together vs just getting “things” to give presents. If what he gets me is thoughtful and inspired by things I love, I think they’re great gifts – otherwise, it’s just stuff!

  7. Mackenzie says:

    I’d love to have a getaway weekend.

  8. Sarah B says:

    I’ve never had a facial so that would be a special thing that I wouldn’t splurge on for myself.

  9. Ashley says:

    Love these!! I think the Ember mug is a perfect gift for your wife/girlfriend.

  10. Caroline C says:

    Thanks as always for the gift guides! Already see a few gifts I will be buying for people. I’m hoping to receive new slippers for Christmas!

  11. Nikki says:

    Love the cube kids toy!! Definitely getting that!!

    • Kristina says:

      Love these ideas! Honestly the thing I want the most this Christmas as a mom of two messy boys is some robot vacuum contraption. Anything that means less housework for me is a win haha!

    • Rachel Holt says:

      Ah- thank you for the ideas! My kids are little. Two boys, ages 5 and 3. The best gift hubby could get would be to plan a day or weekend trip away just the two of us! 😍

    • Pat H says:

      Patagonia vest and some Pillow Talk! Cant wait for my birthday in December!

    • SaraH says:

      These have been a huge help at helping me start my Christmas shopping list! Thank you for all the time and energy you put into these!!

    • Zoe says:

      Men should know that every woman just wants an Olive Garden pasta pass. Really throw in some endless breadsticks while you’re at it. #carbs
      I mean would I also love a Target shopping spree? Sure, cart me over after I’m about 20-25 breadsticks in.

  12. Jacey tufts says:

    I love the idea of an “experience” for a gift!!! Either a day trip to the spa for some Botox or a facial, or an overnight trip for the family somewhere fun! Also, I want an Apple Watch😂🥰

  13. Tara nelson says:

    I jokingly told my husband I wanted an Xbox for Xmas with Just dance so my 4 daughters could play it during the winter instead of telling me how bored they are. He got it for me and it’s one of our favorite things to do together! I can even exercise on Just Dance 🙌🏻

  14. Charlene OstblOom says:

    Anything Patagonia for my son!

  15. Laura Lynn says:

    Best gift I’ve received- anytime we plan a trip as a gift. Gift i really want- maya brenner initial necklace

    • Morgan thomas says:

      Love these gift guides! So helpful when you’re looking for gifts last minute or you don’t like to take your 17 month old shopping in stores. My favorite gift was a hand drawing my husband had done of my daughter. I will cherish it forever and it’s great artwork for the walls

  16. Ashley says:

    A roomba!!! Really anything to take away the cleaning jobs piled on me 😂😂

  17. JesS says:

    Dyson hair dryer!! 😇

  18. Kate says:

    Yes! Like Taylor said.. Canada Goose Jacket!!! Or anything from your gift guide (always up for a new Patagonia) Or just a weekend trip to Asheville! Maybe Omni Grove?!

  19. Inger Luff says:

    You hit this one OUT OF THE PARK! You have covered anyone and anything needed for a gift!

    What I REALLY want for Christmas? A day home ALL BY MYSELF. (Or a Louis Vuitton, whatevs😚)

  20. Margaret says:

    Love these ideas! Those baby Vejas 😍! I want a pair (in my size) for Christmas, but also am a big fan of experience gifts – concerts, weekends away, massages. I’ll take it all!

  21. Megan Ferguson says:

    Ordered my daughter a Tucker & Tate sweatshirt for Christmas. Love that brand!

  22. JulieA says:

    I really want new containers from The Container Company for flour, sugars, etc. Ours are too small to hold a whole bag. So I want a whole matching set of nice big containers for the pantry. And they say romance is dead…

  23. Grace says:

    Solid collection! Patagonia anything, ( all the heart eyes). Though,what I really want this year is a vacuum cleaner! Probably have to pick up one of those fabulous beauty gifts, you know, from Santa! 🙂

  24. Lauren Nordin says:

    My favorite Christmas gift was my MacBook when I started college. Almost 10 years and still going strong. In the market for a new one.

  25. Charissa says:

    Sorel boots, Rachel Hollis start today journal’s.

  26. Kristin says:

    Great guide. Gift I want is a Slip pillowcase or a fun skincare gift set.

  27. Laura Walker says:

    Really hoping for a new Patagonia jacket or UGG boots

  28. Michelle nehring says:

    These gift guides are fantastic! If I’m being honest, what I want most for Christmas is a gift certificate for a deep tissue massage. Mama needs it!

  29. Emily helena says:

    Spa day gift card! Maybe friends spouses could chat and get their ladies spa gift cards to go to spa together!!! Even better if it’s out of town!

  30. MOnica says:

    Patagonia puffer jacket!

  31. LIndsey R says:

    I want a necklace with my kiddos (either) initials or full names. I see a design I think but then see a diff brand and I like that one equally as well. Just can’t quite decide yet.

  32. Anna says:

    Moving the week before Christmas so I’m getting house stuff as my gift. But trying to narrow it down to 1-2 skincare items I haven’t wanted to bite the bullet on. Thinking the hydratingB5 gel from SkinCeuticals

    • Jenny Jeckel says:

      Sephora has sets with trial size perfumes and then a voucher to get a full size of whichever fragrance you like. Or just a new bottle of perfume!

  33. Mary Kate says:

    This is such a great gift guide! Nordstrom really does have everything!

    To answer your Instagram story question, my boyfriend has always done experience gifts which I’ve loved. So for an example, he gave me a trip to Biltmore for my birthday last year. To surprise me with it, he wrapped up two of their wine glasses. I thought it was super thoughtful of him. Other ideas: he’s gotten me things I wouldn’t have splurged on myself like a Lululemon jacket.

  34. Anna James says:

    My favorite gifts are trips or subscription boxes! This year, we are buying each other new leather chairs for our living room. #adulting

  35. Kiwanda says:

    Love your gift guides! I’m not married but I would love some AirPods or a treadmill! I hate that cord on my earphones and the older I get I realize I need to work our especially since I can’t go up 3 flights of stairs before thinking I’m going to pass out!

  36. Amy Branch says:

    I think I’ve matured enough this year to get a French press. Also want an electric wine opener. Love these gift guides!!

  37. Kelsey says:

    Loving these gift guides! This year I want a makeup overhaul, it’s definitely time for an upgrade! So hinting at the hubby for a big Sephora giftcard

  38. Shelley says:

    What I really want: skincare giftcards (aka money for treatments)!

  39. LC says:

    Peloton bike!

  40. Katie says:

    I’d love to give my best friend the Charlotte tilbury contour and high light pallet that you recommend on your Sephora haul. I bought it myself and I’m loving it!

  41. Annie says:

    This is all so helpful! What I really want- Truth: I would love a luxury designer bag, but I don’t want my husband to pick it out!! But we too always get each other one big gift – last year we got each other a new high end mattress, and it has been the best. We have talked about it since pulling the trigger. And then I got to pick out new bedding, which was a selfish, but nonetheless, a win for me!

  42. Allie says:

    Really want remote start put in my car this Christmas! But I also love the idea of gifting a trip/activity together 🙂

  43. Kelli Painter says:

    We always plan a weekend getaway for a joint Christmas gift then fill each others stockings with silly items. All about experiences and travel over stuff. Lots of our weekend getaways revolve around bowl games and SEC football.

  44. CJ Crigger says:

    Love all of these ideas, esp for men- they are so dang hard to buy for! I am a bride to be so number one on my wishlist is a spa gift card so I can get my facial(s) on. After that would be Oribe hair care sets!

  45. Lauren says:

    Love this guide and will definitely be using it! I would love a great leather jacket!

  46. Kirsten says:

    Your Canada goose coat!!

  47. Kelli says:

    Best gift ever would be my husband surprising me with a weekend ski trip and planning everything including dog sitters!

  48. HalEy says:

    I just really want a thoughtful gift that doesn’t scream “I bought this last minute”

  49. Allison says:

    Botox. Turned 30 this year and those “it gets better with age” comments from the hubs aren’t doing it these days. 🙂 You’re one of my favs to follow!

    • Allison H. says:

      I want my kitchen cabinets redone for Christmas! 😬 I know, it’s a little extreme. I NEED the whole Tula line.

    • Nancy a says:

      Sounds silly but I love getting flannel pajamas. As a splurge, I think I would ask for an Apple Watch. 😀

  50. CourtneY says:

    Love all the cozy things to keep me warm but still looking cute. Beanies, sweaters, etc!

  51. Kinley Taylor says:

    Last year my husband got me a pair of bose noise cancelling headphones! Best gift ever! I travel for work and cannot fly with out them!

  52. Paige says:

    For my husband to get a vasectomy so I don’t accidentally get pregnant again 😂😂

  53. Tara says:

    I would love to have some new Charlotte Tilbury makeup from your recommendations!

    I also love trips as gifts- it’s always fun to have something to look forward to and a trip to plan together (away from the kids preferably!) as a couple!

  54. Sarah says:

    Monthly flower delivery for the year! ❤️ 🌹

  55. Stephani clark says:

    I would love a neuface roller!

  56. Jess says:

    World peace…but really diamond earrings or a spa gift certificate

  57. Carike says:

    My husband bought me a selection of travel size perfume from Sephora. Was nice to have done for travel and get to know what I like

  58. Katie beall says:

    Trips, gift cards/treatments to your wife’s favorite cosmetic dermatologist or day pass to a spa for solo relaxation ! Thank you for putting time into helping with gift guides!

  59. Anna james says:

    My favorite gifts are trips or subscription boxes! This year we are getting each other leather chairs for our living room. #adulting

  60. Heather says:

    All new bedding for our master bedroom – duvet cover, pillows, high quality sheets. My bed is my sanctuary because mama loves her sleep!

  61. AndrEa silvey says:

    Making a memory is the best gift and something I don’t have to plan.

  62. Valerie marinello says:

    My ultimate Christmas gift would be the rainbow alpaca sweater from Nordstrom. Aka, the sweater that doesn’t exist. But if my husband takes the kids to Nordy’s for 4 hours to try to find the non-existent sweater and I get time alone by myself, THAT is the gift that keeps on giving! 🤣

  63. Taylor says:

    My wishlist: the knee high boots he tried to buy me for Christmas several years ago but the curvy calf version 😉 Best gift: a card he wrote actual words/feelings in. But let’s be real anything on this gift guide would be great!

  64. Lori manninG says:

    What I really want is a nice size gift card and a day to go do ALL the beauty things.

  65. Millie quinn says:

    Love these ideas!
    I would love to get personalized jewelry with my child’s name since I’m a new mom!

  66. Amanda Enquist says:

    I would love a cordless dyson vacuum, or just a pile of Charlotte Tilbury makeup 🙂

  67. Sydney taylor says:

    Obsessed with you Canada Goose Jacket! Would love to receive one of those 😍

  68. Mairead S says:

    Love your gift guides! Sleep-deprives mom of 3 boys (soon to be 4 in 3 weeks) here.. so I’d love some Botox once I have this baby or air pods to block the older kids’ screaming out!!

  69. NataliE says:

    Love these gift guides! A Louis Vuitton is #1 on my list but I also would love if my husband would plan a special New Year’s Eve Night or a birthday dinner (mine is close to Christmas) with our closest friends where we could dress up and let loose. The key is for me not to have to do the planning 😉

  70. Katie wheeler says:

    Baby uggs are the sweetest! (Scottie is my hero!)

  71. Leah wad says:

    A girl wants a massage, a hair appointment and her nails/toes did! LOL A total pampering “me” day along w/ the cucumber mint spa water. YES. That is just what the doctor ordered for Christmas! But I do love all these gift ideas and I would certainly take any of the cozy comfy items!

  72. Emily says:

    Secretly hoping for the Pillow talk set 🤞🏻 My best gifts have been when my hubby took the kids shopping for me alone. Always pretty earrings.

    • Emily Videtto says:

      This gift guide is amazing! (You can never go wrong with Charlotte Tilbury and a corkcicle). Some of my favorite Christmas gifts in the last couple of years have been a Fitbit versa (I have the rose gold and lavender 😍), a piece of artwork I had been eyeing for a while, riding boots (whether for riding or not… they’re always a fun gift), and a professional portrait of my horse (which is so incredibly special and makes me smile every time I see it). This year I’ve been looking at Le Creuset quite a bit! I think they make wonderful, lasting gifts especially for newlyweds trying to create a home together ❤️

  73. Brandi Barnes says:

    Ultimate gift at this stage in life—a night away in a hotel and a really nice dinner with my husband.

  74. Julia R says:

    Love these ideas! Funny story, My husband said “this year I’m going to get you something practical because the bloggers show you all the things you want”. No, honey, christmas is for nonpractical gifts only! Haha love the Anthropologie sweater as a gift, also love little hoops like Miranda Frye hoops for presents.

  75. Rhonda says:

    I would love a big barefoot dreams blanket/throw!

  76. Jordan Rives says:

    I am on the STRUGGLE bus to help my husband come up with ideas for me for Christmas. I would love a new Mac.

  77. Sarah says:

    Funniest gift my husband ever got me was a crop top Jersey from Victoria secret of his favorite sports team. I am not a crop top kind of gal, so it was clearly meant to be more of a lingerie item. I laughed (hard) but he truly loved it.

  78. Jessica says:

    Mama wants a spa day, I’m taking mani/pedi, massage, hair and makeup done, oh and a facial too… not too much to ask, right? 🙂 LOVE this gift guide!

  79. Courtney says:

    You have covered it all!! So many great ideas for everyone on my list! Thank u! I really want some On-Running Cloud sneakers!! They’re great for working out but also are super cute for the athleisure outfits I wear almost every day!

  80. Natalie says:

    Ok honestly these gift guides were so helpful!! And honestly all I want from my boyfriend for Christmas is something like a spa experience or a massage. Lord knows I need to relax and knowing that he knows that would mean a lot!!

  81. Erin says:

    Love these gifts ideas! I really want a gift certificate for a massage or for monthly massages! It’s something I won’t splurge on for myself.

  82. Molly p says:

    ANYTHING?! A new car lol. Under $100, I’m a sucker for Patagonia sweaters and boots. Any kind. 🙂

  83. SHari Mcniff says:

    The best and unexpected gift was my roomba. I actually have the Neato brand! I’d seriously like one for each floor in the house! As a couple we are shopping for a projector and screen for our large back deck. Who doesn’t want to see Trevor Lawrence in actual size ! 😂

  84. Melissa Sawyer says:

    I’m totally lusting over a barefoot dreams cardigan! Perfect for putting over your pajamas and looking slightly put together if someone rings the doorbell instead of a robe which clearly is comfortable but looks like sleepwear and will bring comments from said doorbell visitor…not that I have any experience with this whatsoever…

  85. Rachel says:

    You are so good- great options!! Thank you

  86. Nicki says:

    BOTOX!! I want Botox but the hubby says he never wants me to get it 😩 Maybe I should gift myself. Bet he wouldn’t even notice 🤣 In his defense, we’ve seen some people look pretty wack after botox. I want Jordan Harper and Botox!!!!

  87. Dawn says:

    I want a free Saturday to do whatever I want or a spa gift card…or both

  88. EmIlee says:

    This is a great gift guide! I always love getting spa gift cards so I can take an afternoon to myself to get some pampering 🙂

  89. Candy says:

    I really want the pillow talk lipstick by Charlotte Tilbury.

  90. Sarah says:

    An engagement ring so he can BE my husband. I don’t think that’s too much to ask of him during this season of generosity and Christmas bonuses…

  91. Carey says:

    You are really good at this!! Found a few items I need to grab for gifts for sure. Xo

  92. Tori naglE says:

    I want my husband to ask HIS parents to take our kids overnight so we can get away and have a nice break and dinner and sleep in! Throw in a night at a good hotel- that he has Booked Already (after consulting the family calendar i painstakingly update only for everyone to ignore until I tell them where they need to be in 5 minutes).

  93. Cassie says:

    Really would like a pair of simple, large, gold hoop earrings (real gold, lol) and I’d love to get your Canada Goose jacket too if I was really on the “Nice” list!

  94. Katie gunneLs says:

    I’d love a gift certificate for a spa day! The thought of a few hours in silence while someone is pampering me is honestly the greatest gift I could imagine.

  95. Kasey briggs says:

    An unlimited budget to furnish and decorate our new house!!

    • Andrea says:

      You are pretty awesome at gift guides. My husband always volunteers to wrap all of the gifts which is a gift in itself! The best gift I have gotten so far has to be my Coffee maker. Hoping to upgrade to one like yours one day.

  96. Erin says:

    Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. At least mine. I have a beautiful engagement/wedding ring, but I desperately want solitaire earrings and a necklace. It’s not got to be huge or the best quality diamonds, but I love the classic look and sparkle ❤️😊💍

  97. Micha says:

    I spoil myself with beauty, health, and fashion purchases, but I never buy myself tech or electronic devices! So for Xmas I’m asking for either AirPods or a Cricut. My type-a personality has wanted a Cricut forever, but I just won’t pull the trigger.

  98. Kellen says:

    best gift I ever got was a large poster/canvas print of a picture of the place we met! It was SO THOUGHTFUL and I loved that we have a little bit of us as art in our home that some might know the meaning and others just think its a cool picture of a bar.

  99. Alexandra says:

    I would love to get a new kindle this year or a nice carry on bag that is the size of a “personal item” but also slips over the handle if your rolling luggage (bonus points if I can put my initials on it)! Or fancy pajamas because I won’t buy them for myself 🙂

  100. Carrie wannamaker says:

    My wish list includes a silk pillowcase, a smart watch, and essential oils!

  101. Nikki says:

    I so badly want a nespresso and a yeti cooler! But also anything Patagonia!

  102. Beth says:

    My favorite gift from my husband was a foot stool and cedar chest he had his grandpa make for me before he passed away… but I also love planning a weekend away together for our birthdays.

  103. Jess says:

    Although they certainly aren’t under $100, I think you cannot go wrong with gifting someone an apple watch! My now fiancé gave me my apple watch as a gift for our first Christmas together and I wear it every single day! Easily a must-have for anyone on the go, your active gal, mom, etc!

  104. Tahira says:

    12 months of a cleaning service!

  105. Aimee pavey says:

    Something for travel or to relax. I just want something to make life easier or something to help me relax!

  106. Taylor bost says:

    LOVE this blog so much!!!

  107. Brooke says:

    Great gift guides!! After being married a couple years, we now do a joint gift and buy something we both want for ourselves or the house. Pelaton is right on the top of the list this year 🙂

  108. April SmIth says:

    Love your kids ideas! I have 2.5 and 1 year old little girls and they will love a lot of this stuff! My ideal Christmas gift would be a long weekend away with the hubs but other than that I’ve been looking for a pair of brown below the knee boots. Love following you and love your podcast idea!

  109. Meg says:

    Things I want for Christmas from my husband: for him to make the bed every day instead of me, the ability to take a good long nap on Sundays. But seriously, my husband always asks for a list and shares it with my mom and my mother in law, so I try to do a variety of prices. This year, I listed sweaters from Anthropologie, Lake Pajamas, diamond huggie earrings, monogrammed dinner napkins, Brackish Bow Tie earrings (new and made in SC!) and pottery from Susan Gordon Pottery.

  110. Brittany cray says:

    I want the barefoot dreams blanket!

  111. Ansley says:

    Love this post. Very helpful! I had a baby in October and what I really want this year is a spa day!

  112. Rabun says:

    I agree that the best gift is one that takes a little bit of planning—like a surprise weekend getaway or something like that! But TBH (and if there’s no time to plan a little trip) I can NEVER have enough travel coffee mugs or water bottles. Yeti/contigo/hydroflask can take ALL my money.

  113. Samantha says:

    A good quality, but not super expensive, travel duffel! At 34, I should probably retire my hot pink Vera Bradley one!

  114. Renea says:

    Coffee maker upgrade, new Birkenstocks, anything from Athleta, anything Charlotte Tilbury, 2020 calendar/planner, Bath and Body Works candles, Capri Blue candles, a trip to the Omni Grove Park Inn!

  115. Lauren morgan says:

    Love the women and teen gift guide!! This is going to help me so much with my Christmas shopping!! And with my Christmas list 😉

  116. Haley says:

    Thank you for this thoughtful gift guide! What I’d really love from my husband this year is a trip back to Maui!

  117. Amy says:

    Hi Cristin!!

    Thank you so much for this post! I’ve already ordered a few items and have more in my cart. I might be done with Christmas shopping by next week if I’m lucky! 😉

  118. Kirbie propst says:

    This isn’t for Christmas but would be the same concept. Every year for Mother’s Day there are 4 of us girls that our husbands gift us a weekend away! They pay for the house and we go to the beach the weekend before mother’s day for an adult girls weekend! It’s FABULOUS! Could do the same for Christmas and do like a spa weekend or mountain trip!

  119. Cher says:

    PJ Harlow pillow case and PJs are in my list this year!

  120. SharLa says:

    May be boring to some, but after I received what I thought was my birthday gift, my hubby also left a card for me to find with money. I was so shocked and excited to get to spend a little more on something I pick out!

  121. TAlena says:

    Love this ♥️

  122. Cloie says:

    This Christmas, I want a membership to fit in 42 (a personality training style gym near me), a Tula gift set, gift cards to my nail salon, and a date night out.

  123. Chase Newman says:

    Thanks for putting this together!! So helpful for me! I really just want the dyson cordless vacuum for Christmas!!

  124. Katy says:

    A weekend get away with hubs or a moms day to relax away! Spa day!!

  125. Megan says:

    I love all of your stuff so much. The teen stuff matches me so much!!

  126. KayLa says:

    Hiring someone to clean the house would be the best Christmas gift!

    • Abby says:

      Instead of spending money on a present, I’d rather my husband set aside the present money for a) light fixtures for our 90s house or b) a month of Real Home Chef so I don’t have to cook to start off the new year 😂

    • Ginny says:

      Thanks for your great posts!! Would love a Roomba!

    • Kristin W. says:

      Real gift ideas:
      -Dudley Stephens Cobble Hill Turtleneck
      -Indoor fruit tree (the gift that keeps on giving)
      -Gemstone stud earrings or stackable bands
      -Botox

      Dream gift ideas:
      -one of those raw-bar seafood towers at a fine dining establishment and no judgement, as I house the whole thing
      -an antiquing road trip up and down the east coast
      -a second honeymoon
      -learning how to use the dryer WITHOUT shrinking my expensive sweaters 😩

  127. Jessica says:

    My husband started a sweet tradition of a spa getaway every year and it is the best way to unapologetically pamper yourself!

  128. Amy MaRks says:

    You are hilarious! I love all your gift ideas! You are the best, real, raw, and honest!!

  129. Lacy says:

    Peloton treadmill!

  130. Kate says:

    I would LOVE a new mattress. But I don’t see that happening right now, so I would be thrilled to get some fun makeup gift sets. Or a new hair dryer.

  131. Cassy tuten says:

    Cold hard cash and my hubby to stay home with the kids while I go spend it all!! 🙌

  132. Kalla says:

    Best gifts are the ones I won’t buy for myself. The boutique perfume, I fell in love with on our honeymoon, that’s not available in my city anywhere. The sunglasses I find to be to much of a splurge. I have no problem getting stuff for my husband or kiddo. It means a lot to me when my husband gets me something less practical that he knows I won’t buy for myself.

  133. Amber G says:

    I love the kids gift guides! Helps me find things for my nieces! Thank you for doing all the hard work and preparing such great guides!

  134. Callie says:

    Love the gift guides! Especially for the little girls. My 4 year old hardly needs anything but you posted some good unique ideas! What do I want for Christmas? Yearly co. gold bangles! What will I probably get? Snowshoes! Or something like that so we can enjoy the outdoors together!

  135. Maggie Johnson says:

    I love all of these gift suggestions but the beauty one is my favorite! As a registered nurse who works on an orthopedic trauma unit, using new beauty products is my form of self-care, which is so important for my mental health! Thank you, Cristin!! You truly do the best gift guides I have found!

  136. Emily iakovakis says:

    I enjoy getting a massage as a gift most years.

    Sadly I really honestly want a robot vacuum … what is my life coming to. #momofa7monthold

  137. Lindsey oler says:

    Thanks for all the great ideas! Excited about the holidays…i love Giving gifts!!

  138. Emily says:

    Love these gift guides! I really want a trip to Nashville to see Anderson East with the hubby!

  139. Ciji Runge says:

    Expecting baby number 2 so ideally I’m looking for comfort/self care gifts. I’d love a plush, cozy bathrobe, silk pillowcase and eye mask, massage, and/or ALL of the wine for after this baby comes out…

  140. Kenna says:

    Definitely a coffee maker! I’m eying the ninja coffee bar!

  141. Amber says:

    Best gift guide ever!! Thanks so much for the tips! I’m looking for a great weighted blanket option!?

  142. KatherinE says:

    As a almost 35 year old mom of three I want a new robot vacuum. And if I’m honest I want one for each floor of my house. Or a new bread machine. Or a well thought out date night.

    Fine diamonds. Diamonds

    No massages. I’ll stress right back out when I get home.

  143. Brenda Waller says:

    Great gift guides!! What I really want is the NuFACE trinity… I could just go get Botox but if this thing works I can avoid the needles in my face!! Needles freak me out!! 😥

  144. Megan says:

    Sorel boots and all the skincare and makeup!

  145. Jessica says:

    AirPods if you don’t have any, Little Giraffe Throw Blanket, French Rolling Pin, Andddd jewelry!

  146. Betsy duncan says:

    I really want the new Apple AirPods! I feel like they would stay in my ear better and I won’t be chasing around that one pod that fell off while I was on the treadmill. You know that you know what I’m talking about Cristin 😉🥰

  147. susan says:

    Gift idea: local spa gift certificate for facial, massage etc.

  148. Jordan says:

    Coffee frother!!

  149. Catherine Wofford says:

    I am always looking for good Patagonia sales. I want another one for Christmas because I wear it on repeat all winter.

  150. Kristen reeves says:

    Your wife really wants a Patagonia Vest, Zella leggings, Laura Merceier travel kit and EarPods. 😊

  151. EMily says:

    A roomba! Vacuuming is a pain & I need one!

  152. Abby WiesE says:

    What I really want is some $$ for BOTOX. Truly a gift for all.

  153. Channing Solomon says:

    So many awesome ideas here. I would love everything from the hotstess guide honestly. Other ideas I would suggest are any kind of subscription! wine club, a home Chef style membership, monthly flower delivery, or house cleaning service!

  154. Karen says:

    I like to do trips as well. We don’t really buy for each other but going on a trip together is my idea of romance!

  155. Jessi says:

    I love these guides! Something on my personal list and for my sisters, is one of the lush XL Saranoni blankets. Each of our kids have the toddler/teen sizes and I find myself wrapping up in them while they’re at school.

  156. Amanda says:

    Great ideas! I’d really be happy if I got a robot that could constantly pick up all the crap my kids leave around the house! Do they have those yet??

  157. Jenn says:

    This year — I’ve asked for a David Yurman bracelet! I’ve never owned a nice bracelet, and they are timeless and beautiful. Excited for your gift guides — I’ll be utilizing them FOR SURE!!

  158. Jamie kimberlinG says:

    Best gift I ever received from my husband was my Breville espresso machine. I use it every single day. It was pricey but totally worth the investment!

  159. Abigail P says:

    Love Nordys!!!

  160. Liz Bauer says:

    I could seriously be done thanks to you!! Awesome ideas!

  161. Brittany says:

    Love to reference your gift guides when making wish lists for myself! For Christmas this year I would really love pajamas, some new kitchen items, and concert tickets!

  162. Covington says:

    Ugg bedroom slippers to wear around the house. I’ve worn mine out!!

  163. CoUrtney says:

    Just some comfy pj’s and some new sheets!! Anything to help with a good nights sleep 😉

  164. NichelLe says:

    Sadly, I kinda want a a cordless vacuum or robot vacuum to help make my daily life easier. Last year my husband got me AirPods and they were the best gift I didn’t know I needed. Hello podcasts and audiobooks while I clean!

  165. Kelly morgan says:

    My problem is I see your gift guides and want to spend all my budgeted Christmas money on me and no one else :0. My daughter is 1, she won’t notice. My husband buys all his own stuff, it’s fine. Something I wouldn’t buy for myself that I wish my husband would… a Dyson vacuum. I have a vacuum fetish and I’m proud of it. Something he bought me that I would have never bought for myself…a Pony O. My sister told him to do it, I was so excited. I have used it. It’s not as great as the girl on the website makes it seem. Kudos to her for her marketing skills. Would I send it back? No way.

    • Tina says:

      I think a date night coupon for every month is a great gift. Some free and some not. A friend did this for her husband and he loved it.

  166. Tina says:

    I think a date night coupon for every month is a great gift. Some free and some not. A friend did this for her husband and he loved it.

  167. Lauren rearden says:

    Loving that Patagonia pullover. A closet staple for sure. But if I’m being honest I just want my husband to put his dirty clothes in the dirty clothes basket Instead of everywhere BUT the dirty clothes basket 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

  168. Nicki Hermann says:

    Wahooo!!! I love a gift!

  169. Megan McCarty says:

    For an older mom, late 40’s with older kids…21, 18 and 14. What I love most is something planned with all involved…dinner and a movie/Christmas special. Christmas themed activity…like going to see lights. As your kiddos get older, these are the best gifts!!!

    • virginia says:

      Love this!! A couple years in a row my siblings and I (32,29 and 26) have gotten my parents a gift card to a restaurant we all love so then we could go out to dinner as a family. Last year, we bought hockey tickets. It is a blast getting to spend time with them since our schedules are so different!

  170. Katelyn Hagony says:

    The best gift guide, and I LOVE that all picks are under $100. This is going to help me so much this year!

  171. Jen says:

    My number one wish this year is for the glopro set! Most memorable gift…I was 6 months pregnant and complained about having to get up in the middle of the night and sit on a cold toilet seat and lack of sleep so my Christmas gift from my hubby that year was a cushioned toilet seat and a body pillow. 🤣🤣🤣 #marriagebliss

  172. Ashley s says:

    So many ideas! I’ve told my husband I want the Dyson hair dryer for (My December) birthday/Christmas. I also added silicone O key ring to the list.

  173. Nikki klopp says:

    All the makeup sets look awesome!

  174. Meredith ross says:

    I love to give a good gift so I appreciate all the extra help! Sometimes it’s helpful to think outside the box and use someone else’s creative outlet to make sure gift’s are perfect!!

  175. Tayler says:

    Hermès H bracelet

  176. Kelly says:

    One of those massagers you can attach to a chair. I drive a lot and constantly ask my husband to rub knots out of my back…which you would think I was asking him to run a marathon 🤦🏼‍♀️ So I’d like one of those so he can stop complaining!!

  177. Leslie says:

    New luggage!!

  178. Chanel Wirkkala says:

    I want a coconut culture gelato sampler. They’re pricing is steep, so not something you buy anytime. Also beautycounter products. All of them

  179. Sebrina says:

    On Christmas Eve past my boyfriend at the time got me an I-pad, I was soo beyond excited that I didn’t notice he was down on one knee to propose!! I was shocked! Best Xmas gifts ever! 💕

  180. Alisha says:

    Thanks for some awesome ideas! I’m always a fan of getting makeup (like a makeup palette or lipstick). This year I’m thinking of putting money towards new bedroom furniture instead of gifts!

  181. Nicole says:

    I really want a slip silk pillowcase – great minds!!

  182. Stacie says:

    I would love some Corinthian wind chimes but they are pricey. I think they would be a good gift for someone who has everything.

  183. Angelina says:

    Love this gift guide!!! I want gift card to get several facials this year….not just one but several 😃

  184. Elizabeth N says:

    Love Nordstrom! My go to! For my self or bf I’m gonna go with Patagonia! MIL some barefoot dreams!

  185. Crissy mcmullan says:

    I would LOVE a spa day or a night away!

  186. Dawn jarvis says:

    How about something simple like time to take a bath in silence! Like a coupon or something for it!

  187. Sabryna Kurtz says:

    *JCrew Cashmere sweater
    *Air pod case (Amazon)
    *Faux Hermès wrap band for Apple Watch (Amazon)

  188. Morgan says:

    These are all AMAZING gift ideas! The wine tumbler is a perfect gift for anyone!

  189. Karen Platz says:

    It is always hard for me to come up with something unique. My bday is around Thanksgiving and then Christmas shortly after. However, this year I would love to have the Dyson hairdryer!

  190. Courtney thoMas says:

    Always love your gift guides!!! Such good ideas! My girls will love the unicorn purse

    • Lauren says:

      I was given a heated blanket for the car as a joke because I always complain about how cold I am. I actually use it all the time in the winter! I’ll take all the warm and cozy things!

  191. Laura Kathryn says:

    I would really love a spa package. I NEED a day to myself and what woman doesn’t love to be pampered.

  192. Melissa Woodley says:

    Rose gold diamond and to put in the mix with my engagement and wedding rings.

  193. Leslie says:

    Ohh a Peloton is a great idea!! We’ve been eyeing luggage for the fam, would be a good Christmas gift!

  194. AshLey b says:

    The best gifts I’ve gotten have been my Barefoot Dreams robe and my blankets. Hubby got me the Mickey & Minnie one and I love it!

  195. KRIStin Q says:

    I love getting gift cards for a spa day. It forces me to relax and spend time on me.

  196. Camille says:

    The Dyson hairdryer and jewelry (always 😉)!

  197. Logan says:

    Remote start for your car! I’ve been told you can get that installed even if it didn’t come with your vehicle new. 🤷🏻‍♀️ But, gosh, I would love that on cold mornings!

  198. Kim long says:

    Great gift ideas! So helpful especially for little girls.

  199. Brittany says:

    I really want an outdoor projector and screen setup! My husband is also a Clemson grad and not much would be better than being able to have outdoor get togethers for away games! (And national championships)

  200. Kecia parrish says:

    New bath towels! 😆 over using our beach towels. What has even happened to our towels?!

  201. Kaila Hordos says:

    Love this post! Just bought the cubebots for my nephews through your link! We are having our first baby this Christmas, and I would love to add a band to my wedding set to commemorate his birth.

  202. Chelsea says:

    #1 gift always on my list – fuzzy socks!!!
    #2 Mason Grey Kimono Robe
    #3 A trip somewhere that he has fully planned and organized himself (I know – dream on)! Lol

  203. Sarah says:

    My boyfriend and I are currently discussing setting a limit for each other (that we probably won’t follow) or planning some sort of trip… however, what I actually want is something we can create a memory doing. We went to the Grove Park Inn in the late summer so a weekend trip to the Grove Park would be golden… maybe a proposal!? Idk, we’re getting wild over here. Peace and Blessings y’all!

  204. Jen Rosenfeld says:

    Dyson Hair Curler, A new pair of GG, perfume, Hoka Running Shoes, spray tans sessions, Cryofridge sessions, new make up brushes, Charlotte Tillbury highlighter. I am easy I love about all things.

  205. Betsy says:

    I want some diamond earrings that are fake but that people think are real 😂

  206. Lyndsey says:

    I love your Gift guides! The best gift I’ve ever received were a pair of ugg slippers! I’ve literally worn them everyday since I got them- school drop off, mail run, around the house- literally all day some days!

  207. Meghan says:

    These are great gift ideas! A good gift idea is a day set aside just the two of you. Go explore something new in the city you live in. Find a new coffee shop, an activity together like candle lab or a wooden sign painting place, eat dessert before dinner at a little bakery, and then a dinner at a new restaurant you have been wanting to try.

  208. JAna says:

    Thanks so much for sharing these! I’ll be referring to it all season long! All I want for Christmas is a spa day and a nap ! Mama needs some me time!

  209. Sydney says:

    As a new first time mom, some type of self care gift certificate would be AMAZING! A spa day, facial, girls trip planned. This post is EVERYTHING!

  210. Sarah says:

    Love following all your content. Such good ideas my boyfriend is so hard to buy for so any help is greatly appreciated! I’m hoping to get a shiny ring this year 🤞🏼 We have been together for 5 years, so hopefully Christmas is the time!

  211. Lauren P says:

    My favorite gift I’ve ever gotten is a picture book of my kids that my husband made. For him To take the time to do it meant so much.

  212. Jodi says:

    A nice spa day always hits the spot for the perfect gift!

  213. Paige says:

    Favorite gift from my husband that I never knew I needed: my ROBOT VACCUM. It really is the gift of TIME bc I use my real vacuum so much less! (& yes my love language is acts of service lol)

  214. Erica says:

    My Clarisonic died earlier earlier this year. I’m really hoping that my husband gifts me the new and improved version for Christmas!

  215. Lyndsey says:

    I always love your gift guides! The best gift I’ve ever received (and my favorite to give!) is a pair of Ugg loafer slippers the year I became a mom! I’ve seriously worn mine everyday since I got them-school drop off, mail run, quick target run- sometimes all day!

  216. Jennifer says:

    This is ah.maz.ing! I appreciate anyone or anything that makes my life easier!

  217. Jen says:

    Gift certificate for a massage!

  218. Christie says:

    These guides are awesome! I love to sew as a hobby and I’m wanting a new serger! Totally corny but it would make my life a lot easier!

  219. Jessica W says:

    Your gift guides are always so great! My husband and I always do stockings for each other and we usually do a trip or something bigger we want for our house, this year we are taking our girls to Disneyland!

  220. Blair says:

    I’m always asking for rings to mix and match my stack. This year I’m also asking for a litter box (hoping it will come with a kitten) 😉

  221. Caitlin says:

    I want a night at Grove Park!

  222. Trina says:

    100% getting my daughter that unicorn bag, she’s going to freak! And the dinosaur kit is perfect for my Dino-obsessed nephew. Thanks for this!!

  223. Paige says:

    Love this! What I really want is new clothes with my new, married, monogram but I’m too scared my hubby will mess it up!

  224. Margaret Kozlowski says:

    Your gift guides are the best!

  225. Amanda says:

    Love all of these ideas! I personally love getting gift certificates to my hair salon and for spa/facials!

  226. Amy Stiens says:

    I love your beauty items. And the stuff for Zach! Great suggestions. Thank you!

  227. Hannah says:

    The best blog post on everything beauty for Christmas. Covers every walk of life making it easy to get everyone done in one swoop!

  228. Melanie Wilson says:

    A Louis Vuitton wallet clutch or simple diamond band to stack with my wedding/engagement rings.

  229. Chaisley Jacks says:

    My hubby is buying me new flooring for the house for Christmas … ahh the things you get excited about as you get older! On another note I have been hinting at a weighted blanket for years now! Thanks for sharing your gift ideas!!

  230. Jillian says:

    I love all of your gift guides! My dream gift would be for my husband to plan a trip somewhere for us. I’d love for more quality time more than presents. Realistically, I’d love a Barrington purse with my new initials and a pair of on cloud running shoes.

  231. Erin says:

    I could really use a new laptop!
    Love your posts!

  232. Adriana says:

    This gift guide is so great! I’m excited for the others coming up- I never know what to get my husband (also a dec birthday) or my MIL, so I’ll take all the help I can get!
    My favorite gift my husband gave me for Christmas was a cleaning service for the house, possibly after whining for 4 years 😂… although he was sneaky and only gave me 3 months worth, but I took what I could get!

  233. Erin says:

    Would love a favorite candles post! Always want and need them but gosh darn some can be pricey!

  234. Tricia says:

    I really want a peloton……… but in more practical terms, I always love when my hubby plans something for just us to do together.

  235. Corinne says:

    I actually went through & bookmarked a few of these ideas!
    My husband and I keep tossing the idea back and forth of just going together and getting a Peloton as our gift to each other this year. I wouldn’t hate it!

  236. Kamran maRtIn says:

    I love love the Tyler candle company detergent to wash our sheets in! It’s one of those gifts you wouldn’t typically by yourself but it’s oh so good!!

  237. Elizabeth says:

    Love these guides!! We always ask for 1 splurge item like a nicer handbag or new boots. That way we dont stress about trying to find a bunch of small stuff just to feel like we are getting/giving presents. This year I’m asking for a new pair of Sam Edelman boots that I’ve had my eye on.

  238. Emily richardson says:

    Ok so this is totally not gift related, however, I want to change my vote on the color of your office tree now that I have seen those Target trees lol pops of color all the way! ALSO- those baby UGGS ahhh!

  239. Michelle says:

    Holy cow this gift guide is awesome! Going to be referring to this a lot for my daughter and husband. Thank you so much!

  240. Dana says:

    I really would just love a weekend away or a staycation at a bed and breakfast or boutique hotel- complete with breakfast in bed and all the cozy robes!

  241. Melissa L says:

    I love all these ideas! I want and need a robot vacuum! Not the most exciting gift but it will make my life so much easier!

  242. Chrissy says:

    One of the best date nights my husband and I have had is taking a cooking class at Sur la table! You can bring your own wine which is a plus! I am all about experiences for Christmas gifts and I think this would be a really thoughtful gift for a husband to give his wife! 😀 Also, how awesome would it be to get a whole shopping day at Nordstrom where you would get a gift in each department and be totally pampered?!

  243. Amy Stiens says:

    Soooo, here’s what I really want for Christmas- to have my husband hand me a bottle of wine and tell me he’s going to wrap all the presents and do all the shopping for everyone. Then, I’ll take my bottle of wine and hide from my entire family because they won’t be used to seeing dad do this kind of stuff and they’ll think I ran away or something so they’ll be calling for me 24-7 and go to my closest and listen to country music and drink my wine all alone! Please hubby listen to this request. I need this gift more than anything! Thank you!

  244. Christi cantu says:

    I would love some ugg slippers, stocking full of makeup, shoot I’ll even take my house getting deep cleaned because the Lord knows I hate doing that 😂

  245. Daniel says:

    My wife would really enjoy a Dyson vacuum, a remote car starter, or a Disney vacation with the family. All things that she feels are selfish for herself because we can’t afford it.

  246. Stephanie Bleakmore says:

    Thank you so much for your time putting these together for us!! It has saved me so many headaches. Ha ha !

  247. Elise Gillespie says:

    Barefoot dreams blanket

  248. Chandler says:

    I would love a surprise weekend getaway!!

  249. Cassie says:

    I would love to get a mother’s ring with my kids birthstones.

    Loving the gift guides!! My 3yr old tells me she doesn’t know what she wants. This helped!!

  250. Heather says:

    Honestly, I never know what I want. But what I really want is some new bedding!! Lol!! And a Roomba. Hello 30ish something woman!! Thanks for these great gift guides!!

  251. KaMran martin says:

    I love your gift guide! One of the gifts I love to gift and receive is the Tyler candle company laundry detergent. It’s one of those things that you wouldn’t typically by yourself, but it’s oh so amazing to wash bedsheets or blankets in!!

  252. Megan says:

    A new pair of shoes to wear walking/at the gym! Practical, but I hate spending money on them.

  253. Jamie says:

    A cordless Dyson! You know you’ve become an adult when you want a vacuum 🤦🏻‍♀️

  254. Lauren Bunge says:

    These gift ideas are awesome! As a mama of a 17 month old and being 5 months pregnant I would love some skin care or spa treatments. Any self care before I have two under 2!

  255. Kelly grimes says:

    Underwear. Socks. Can I even say bras ? When did these staples become a lost art in gift giving. Please don’t waste any money on perfume gift sets. They are great values because that shower gel and lotion sit there on the shelf and clutter up my bathroom. Just buy the larger perfume ! Also I’ve always been a Pinterest snooper when it comes gift giving. Just make sure who ever you are snooping on is recent pins.

  256. Elysa dicampli says:

    A cleaning lady!

  257. Jennifer says:

    I want the BlankNYC moto jacket with removable hood. Or a YSL bag 😜

  258. Christi chamBers says:

    Love your gift guides! I would love a nice jacket- or some peace and quiet this Christmas. 😂

  259. KasEy says:

    Hands down a day at the spa is always my go to gift ask for myself..
    Day alone ✔️
    Silence ✔️
    Fresh mani/pedi ✔️✔️
    Pampering ✔️
    Someone always saying yes ✔️
    Wine ✔️✔️✔️

    I also asked for an immersion blender… because, life.

  260. Sarah S says:

    Water filter! 🤣

  261. Jen Rabon says:

    So good! As usual!

  262. Rachel says:

    So many great gift ideas! I think I’ll snag the Patagonia pullover for the hubs!

  263. Jen Hoover says:

    I love the maya brenner initial necklaces for my kids for Christmas!

  264. Heather Bonner says:

    Every year I ask for pedicure gift certificates. I haven’t gotten them yet. But it makes me excited to think about Spring/Summer in December.

  265. Henderson says:

    A massage is always a good idea!!

  266. Megan Ferguson says:

    I love gifts of pampering! Hydrafacial, massage, mani/pedis. Just me time!

  267. Becca says:

    Great round up, thanks for sharing!

  268. Alex says:

    Trips! My favorite gifts are experiences and things to look forward to / last year my husband gave me a trip to Napa that he had planned – also love tickets to concerts, etc!

  269. KortnEy says:

    Barrington gifts merch. One of everything.

  270. Emily says:

    Love these guides! Zella leggings continue to be my very favorite!

  271. Leah says:

    Barre3/Orangetheory certificate! Just be careful what you may or may not be implying lol! If you have an athletic partner sometimes the best way to be pampered is with a new workout. Especially after the holidays!

  272. Lisa feaster says:

    This year for Christmas I’d love a spa gift card. Also a weighted blanket and a new kuerig.

  273. KristaN says:

    Love these gift guides!! So excited to be done with shopping early for a change! I told my husband I wanted wanted to plan an adult trip for my Christmas gift (because kids;) or Botox! Haha, I think it’ll be the Botox 😉

  274. Mary says:

    A trip somewhere warm!

  275. Lindsey says:

    Best gift I’ve ever received is my husband coming home from an exhausting week with pizza for him and the kids, and a gift card for me to go get a mani/pedi. No sexier words have been spoken than when he said, go relax, I got this. It’s a wonder I’m not pregnant again. Lol

  276. Haley parker says:

    I want a barefoot dreams throw blanket and robe! And sorel boots…and leopard ugg slippers!

  277. Lauren Bunge says:

    I love all these gift guides!! As a mama of a 17 month old and 5 months pregnant I would love some skin care or spa treatments! Any self care before I become a mama of two under 2!

  278. Savannah Russell says:

    Natty tickets will always be accepted (Go Tigers!), but a really good steamer would be great! No one has time for dry cleaners or irons anymore.

  279. ChelsEa says:

    In my dream world, the best gift would be a deep cleaning of the house and if my wonderful husband took my car to get detailed and then delivered it back to me fresh as when it came off the lot! 😍 added bonus would be if he walked in with Kendra Scott jewelry stands in hand because that’s a splurge I just can’t justify for myself!

  280. Kelli says:

    I’m honestly at the age that new appliances and things for the house such as a vacuum excite me! Lol!

  281. Allie says:

    I always love getting makeup – this year the Mac paint pot eyeshadow primer and Tan-Luxe face tanning drops are on my list. Also, the Stila mascara and eyeshadow palate are amazing and all under $100!

  282. Allison k says:

    I would love a trip, or a spa gift certificate or something fancy that I wouldn’t buy for myself!!

  283. Maggie west says:

    Okay so I should just go ahead and send these to my husband because they’re all on point!! I do think this year I want a silk pillowcase, or one of the tenish specific gift options I sent my husband, with the URLs (read: he likes surprises, I like specific items). Thanks for all you do to get us ready for the holidays!

  284. Megan Langan says:

    My husband has been great at like promising gifts but not delivering on them Haha that’s when “it’s the thought that counts ” is taken a little too far! My husband has given me gift certificates for a local jeweler though to create customs pieces and I love that!

  285. AndrEa says:

    Alone time!

  286. Molly says:

    A trip! Doesn’t have to be anything crazy but don’t make me plan it! Oh – and make arrangements for the dog!

  287. Shelby Rouse says:

    These are great! I hoping to get something for me and not the house. NO SMALL APPLIANCES! Anything beauty related would be great!

  288. Paula says:

    I would love out of town tickets to see a live taping of my favorite podcast, Armchair Expert. This way, we get to plan some time alone for a few days and meet Dax and Monica in person!

  289. TIffany says:

    Love these gift ideas! We usually plan a trip because our anniversary falls a week after Christmas, but my Patagonia jacket and pullover are 2 of the best gifts I’ve gotten. I wear them all the time.

  290. Kara says:

    Love your gift ideas thanks!!!!! 😍 what I would pick for a gift if I had a choice .. a gift card for skin care !!!! And the thanksgiving sweater you posted … love it!!!!

  291. Rhonda says:

    A barefoot dreams blanket/throw

  292. Chrystal Carter says:

    Great gift guides. You asked in stories what we wanted for Christmas. For Christmas I want a cuisinart bread machine, James Farmer book, Revision skin care, gift card to get a massage, Merrill boots and barefoot dreams pooh bear and piglet blanket. 🙂

  293. Lindsey todd says:

    Great guides! I would love a Shark upright Apex duoclean vacuum to help with all the dog hair we have. Some Charlotte Tillbury and SkinCeuticals products as well, because every girls gotta look her younger best self. Especially in my cause with MS and Lupus. Thanks so much for all you do, and keeping me dressed and laughing CC!

  294. Katie says:

    AirPods!

  295. Britney says:

    Thanks for all the guides! I’d love a colored yeti and some lulu joggers. Oh and a new washer dryer…but that may not help for your guide 😂

  296. Lisa Robbins says:

    Love this guide! We typically do a trip in the spring as a joint gift to each other BUT we do like to open a few things with our girls. I’ve added the Bracha initial pendant necklace to my list and some workout gear that I wouldn’t buy for myself. I’m much better at giving but it’s nice to unwrap a few pretty things under the tree!

  297. Libby Luper says:

    An off-roading excursion and treehouse stay at Primland! Pleassseeee!

    Now, while you’re at this- can you go convince my husband to gift me that? 🤣

  298. Taylor says:

    I’m already getting a white christmas from my Christmas trip to Germany!! What more could I really want?!
    Maybe some sweaters for outfit inspiration for my trip

  299. Melanie says:

    When we were married I made my husband promise to never buy me anything that I had to plug in because that’s never going to be fun end well but here I am over 20 years later asking for the Dyson stick vacuum V10. Everyone seems to love the Roomba but with dogs in the house I need that Dyson & it’s cord free so technically he’s still not breaking the promise 🙂

  300. Meghan says:

    I want someone to come deep clean my house or a roomba to vacuum while I’m at work!

  301. AmanDa says:

    These are amazing! The best gift was from my MIL…a roomba. At the time, we had a dog that shed like crazy and a little boy. Now we have a toddler girl and that boy is just a little older but still makes a huge mess any time he eats. It has been great!!

  302. Danielle says:

    Gift ideas I usually like are sentimental or experiences. For example I would love a monogrammed piece of jewelry with my sons name on it (born this yr) or I told my husband let’s do a staycation for a day to relax by a pool maybe get a massage and order room service 🤣🤣

  303. Laura Ficken says:

    Love these gift guides!! One of my favorite gifts so far has been my inflatable paddle board…we are on the lake all summer and it is so fun (just a bummer I had to wait 6 months after Christmas to test it out!) I also want one of those heated back massager things I keep seeing from Oprah’s list. 🙂

  304. Morgan bergman says:

    My favorite gifts are gifts I wouldn’t buy myself that are pampering, a massage, mani/pedi, facial. Nothing better!!

  305. Kellie webb says:

    A box full of all the fun boujee doggy/kitty things (Rae Dunn bowls, faux fur blanket, animal print collar) + a certificate for the adoption fee! The gift that keeps on giving. ❤️

  306. Ashley says:

    I would love a gift card to use specifically on makeup so I don’t have to explain to my husband why makeup that I don’t even wear half the time costs so much!

  307. Jill says:

    Love this gift guide! I’ve been needing gift ideas for my little nieces and nephews, and found a few things for myself too of course!

  308. Rebecca says:

    Love this guide!
    This momma is wanting a full body massage!

  309. Jessica jensen says:

    Girrrrrrrl! You are my kindred spirit! This gift list is perfect, as are you! If you could just adopt a 9 and 6 year old boy so I could swipe up on clothes for them that’d be great! Thanks for all you do to make me look good 😜

  310. AshLey says:

    The top item that I’ve asked my husband for this year is to have someone come in and deep clean our house. I’m due with our first child in January and I would love more than our house to be spotless when we bring the baby home from the hospital!

  311. Kristy Jennings says:

    Loving these gift guides! My favorite Christmas gift every year is that my husband packs up all of our Christmas decorations while I go spend time with my mom and sister. I come back home and voila! everything is back in place. 🙂

  312. Julianna says:

    Best gift I ever received was from my boyfriend at the time. It was our first Christmas together and he had saved little items from dates, like a ruby stone we found in the mountains, a cotton stem because he knew how much I love cotton for decor, and a picture of us and put it in a cute mason jar with a burlap bow around it. That’s by far been the best thoughtful gift I’ve ever received.

  313. Leah Outland says:

    Barre3/Orangetheory certificate! Just be careful what you may or may not be implying😂 If your partner is athletic sometimes the best way to be pampered is with a fresh workout routine that may be too expensive for everyday.

  314. Laure says:

    Alone time! Spa day!

  315. Kimberly RobertS says:

    My “dream” Christmas gift is something i first heard of husbands doing for their wives for Mother’s Day…a gift certificate for a solo stay at a hotel with a spa. I hope that doesn’t make me sound terrible but that alone time is few and far between!

  316. Courtney says:

    Instead of gifts my husband and I have started spending the money on trips for the two of us! The quality time and memories are way better than any gift that we could just go out and by ourself.

  317. Caroline says:

    As a Christmas gift from my husband, I would love a kid free shopping day. The whole day spent buying stuff for myself without a worry in the world! 🤪 Or I wouldn’t be mad if I received new cookware or sheets for a practical buy!

  318. Ashley hannah says:

    I really want an iRobot 😳 #thisis30something

  319. CasSey says:

    Love this! I’d like to get credit for Poshmark so when all the re-gifts hit the market I can scoop them up 😉

  320. Rebekah says:

    We don’t typically do gifts, but the best thing my husband has gotten “me” is hiring someone to come clean the house. GLORIOUS!!

  321. Rheaven Wunderlich says:

    I always ask for a massage gift certificate. They do a Christmas package that is a 60 minute massage, lunch and a pedicure.

  322. Taffy says:

    I think I’ll just forward this straight to my husband! I really do you appreciate your efforts in putting these together- you’re awesome!

  323. Tori yokley says:

    My husband got me a Cricut machine and accessories last Christmas! I was very excepted and impressed since I had said I wanted one approximately 84 times and I didn’t figure he was listening any of those times. Needless to say I was excited and surprised!

  324. Alicia Wilkerson says:

    Spanx faux leather leggings!!!!!

  325. MichelLe says:

    My favorite gift = Art!

  326. Laura Price says:

    I love this guide! I’m the worst to buy for- I’m so picky! But probably my favorite gifts I’ve gotten recently are my Ugg robe- so soft/so comfy/doesn’t make me too hot (because Texas heat is so real…) and nice personalized stationary because my mama raised me to write thank you notes 😂

  327. Tori says:

    What I will get: a coffee maker (which I don’t hate at all)
    What I really want: the Hourglass Ghost edit palette and a bottle of Belle Glos.

  328. Meagan stout says:

    Olapex gift set from Sephora! New ugg bedroom shoes. Frye booties. Jeans from made well

  329. Kelly atkinson says:

    I love all of these!! I know that appliances/cleaning tools are not probably on the “DO NOT BUY YOUR WIFE THIS” list, but I would love if my husband put a Roomba under the tree for me. It’s just not something I’d buy for myself. Does that make me a dud?

  330. Matraca kolb says:

    I want a spa day!! Also, thank you so much for all the great sales, fashion advice and general entertainment. I genuinely love watching your stories and find myself laughing out loud.

  331. GiGi gobLe says:

    Love the breakdown of all the categories. Thanks for all of the time, effort, and organization!

  332. Jessica lusano says:

    Great gift ideas that I actually want this year…lululemon leggings, Rothys leopard flats, and an oventure key ring to name a few!

  333. Jenn says:

    Weighted blanket!

  334. COrrIe says:

    My fav present was a bottle of perfume that I had mentioned months before and he remembered

  335. Myranda rauch says:

    As weird as it may sound all I want would have to be running boards for my car! It’s something I want but absolutely don’t want to be the one to pay for lol

  336. Lara says:

    I love all these gift ideas.
    Would really love a gift card for some pampering- blow out, massage etc. something i wouldn’t normally treat myself to. 😊

  337. Anna says:

    Love your gift guides!! Thanks SO much for all the time and effort you put into keeping the public aware of the good stuff 😄. My favorite Christmas gift hubby has given me is the maya Bren we initial necklace with our boys initials. I’m wanting the skinceuticals or obagi vitamin c serum this year!

  338. Maghan Bender says:

    I love all of these! So many good ideas. A past favorite would be a stand up kitchen aid mixer. On the wishlist this year is a LV Neverfull, but I’m pretty sure it’s not happening! 😆

  339. Kristin H says:

    The best gifts I have ever gotten have been my Apple Watch and Apple air pods. Not a tech person but they are the best gift ever!

  340. Tiffany says:

    I’m a sucker for makeup!! Can’t go wrong with giving me anything makeup related!! I always want to try new things but find myself to be a creature of habit, gifting me something I’m easier to try! Thanks for the gift guides!

  341. Taylor franklin says:

    Your gift guides are always SO good!!! Thank you for putting them together! In response to your “what to get my wife for Christmas” here are my top three things: 1. Pre-scheduled house cleaning service 2. Truffle jet setter case for traveling 3. Nespresso machine (or some other fancy coffee drink maker)
    Happy Holidays!!

  342. Laura davidson says:

    This is a great gift guide. I am really wanting a cozy lounge set and some high quality skin care this year.

  343. Magda says:

    What I would love most is for my husband to plan a whole trip for the two of us AND arrange childcare by himself. But that’s probably too much to ask for, so I’d love some stacker bands to go with my wedding rings.

  344. Nikki smith says:

    Always look forward to a new pair of casual tennis shoes—-my fave are usually a pair of new balance from Anthro!

  345. Grace MoRtenson says:

    I wish guys knew how much we liked hair tools!! But like good hair tools… like not conair!!!! I’m gonna send my Bf the link when you make this list!

  346. Rachel says:

    I’d like one of those giant ring key chains. I’m always losing my keys in the bottom of my purse.

  347. Michelle says:

    Tory Burch Chelsea slouchy tote for work. I know it’s the equivalent of purchasing a fun new firearm for yourself but come on and make the sacrifice for your lady!

  348. Legare says:

    Away luggage 🙌🏼🙌🏼

  349. Kelli barker says:

    This mama needs a good steam mop because I’m about to have a 4 year old and a newborn And no time to be scrubbing floors!!

  350. Christine giannelli says:

    Best gifts = lululemom work out clothes because new gym clothes mean I’ll go to the gym 😂!

  351. KrIstina says:

    Cooking classes as a couple!

  352. Caitlyn says:

    A fancy pasta pot 😉

  353. Leslie Robinson says:

    I love a good trip, especially in the Winter when things are drab! Our anniversary is in December so we often plan a late January trip as Anniversary/Christmas ❤️

  354. Caroline Pinson says:

    Airline gift card!

  355. Elizabeth n says:

    This wife wants a Peloton!

  356. Debbie says:

    Love so many of your gift picks! But the beauty ones are my favorite. Charlotte Tilbury is my favorite and thanks to you I’ve become an addict.😜 Of course your mens guide is pretty good too. My hubby is a hunter also and looking forward to hints from Zach👍♥️ Thanks for all your hard work rounding this up 🙏

  357. Meredith says:

    I know they say to never buy your wife a vacuum, but BUY YOUR WIFE A DYSON!!! It’s seriously the best thing on the planet and I’m so happy to have gotten mine 8 years ago. With husband/wife birthdays and anniversary in November then Christmas, we always do a big trip as well!

  358. Heather Haley says:

    Love the gift guides for my list. As for my family this is our first year to go on a trip for our gift to each other. Going snow skiing!!! Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put in to everything you do!!

  359. Jen says:

    I’ve had the hardest time coming up gift ideas for ME! This gives me some good ideas to pass to my hubby!

  360. Natalie says:

    I would LOVE a spa day to myself. Just a day to relax and be pampered with no one needing me for anything!

  361. Lexy gunnell says:

    The wife would love anything Patagonia, a Louis Vuitton, cutco knives, new kitchen aid…. I could go on!! I never splurge, so my splurge list is long!!

  362. Mindi says:

    Great ideas!! A gift I always love to receive is a gift card to the spa! After all the hustle and bustle of Christmas I’d love to go get a massage once the kids are back in school.

  363. Rachael Grayson says:

    Well, I was able to find what I’m getting my hubby, thank you!

    This year I want Botox. Haha. Seriously though, Botox and a new Apple Watch band that is tortoise shell.

  364. RebeccA says:

    Love a gift guide for the whole family, thank you! First year with a baby, I want a mini vacation weekend for Christmas- road trip or staycation!

  365. Jen says:

    Cannot go wrong with a wireless speaker!

  366. Margot says:

    Maid service for a year!!! Best gift would be for someone else to come and clean my house all year! Or an organizer to come and home edit the crap out of my stuff

  367. Shannon says:

    The best gifts from last year was my Away luggage and kindle! I use them constantly.

  368. Lainey says:

    Thanks for this!!! This just made shopping 10x easier. I already see several things and amen to curbside pickup. Nobody has time for shipping or in store lines.

  369. Brooke says:

    For me my dream gift this year is a piece of jewelry to celebrate my kids. I have 2 boys and am due with our third and final, a little girl, in January 💜

  370. Jennifer says:

    A tall jewelry box

  371. Jessica says:

    These are great! You help me out big time by doing these!

  372. Jacklyn G says:

    This is AMAZING! Still can’t help but want a darn Peloton bike, the advertisements have totally hooked me. I feel victimized hahahah!

  373. Samantha says:

    Love these gift guides!
    I love getting things for our house. Since moving in, 2 years ago, I’ve hated our stove. Husband listened and asked me exactly what stove I wanted. I can’t wait for Christmas!!

  374. Alicia says:

    I love your gift ideas! My husband and I always do a joint gift for Christmas. Last year, we got the Peloton bike and this year we’re going to do the Peloton tread.

  375. Stacy says:

    I love ALL the things! Thanks for sharing!

  376. Jennifer says:

    Bras! And not sexy SI magazine bras (we’ve been married 14 years). Comfortable, non slip strap NUDE bras that look good under everything. 🙏🏻❤️🙌🏻😂

  377. Loryn says:

    Best gift I’ve received recently: For our wedding anniversary my husband bought me a case, yes a case!, of my favourite vintage wine! I was super excited about it 🙂

    Thanks for all your great gift giving tips, you rock!

  378. Debra says:

    Would love new leggings/workout gear! Or any of the Patagonia vests!

  379. JAmie says:

    We try to plan a weekend getaway around Christmas instead of presents!

  380. Emily says:

    I’m pregnant so a little difficult to buy for this year. But what I really want is a cozy robe/massage gift card/night at a hotel. Ahhhhhh.

  381. AK says:

    We’re going to the Christmas markets in Europe for thanksgiving, so that will probably be our gift to each other. If not, I’d love some pretty decorative pillows for our living room or flower bomb perfume. Or makeup sets. I feel funny asking for those from my in-laws for some reason. Cooking classes are also on my list though. Merry merry!

  382. Ashley raggio says:

    Personal Trainer (not everyone would want that from spouse but I would love to add to our gym membership)
    Spa membership
    MZ Wallace Sutton
    Charlotte Tilbury anything
    Sorel Joan of Artic II booties

    I know only one of these are under 100.00z 😂🤷🏼‍♀️

  383. DD Crews says:

    Not a mama myself, but my two sisters have 4 littles each and what I hear from them most is the gift of alone time! Whether that’s a day pre-planned with spa treatments, a gift certificate to urban nirvana or the like, or even a staycation in a nice hotel where they can sleep without being “on guard” to hear a crying baby in the night. Doesn’t have to be anything big, but the gift of making a mama prioritize herself…because what mamas out there actually do that on their own?

  384. Jenn mcgettigan says:

    All I want for Christmas is Botox…really.

  385. April Johnson says:

    My REAL David Yurman bracelet (not a dupe). It was my wedding gift from my husband.

  386. Ellen says:

    I’d like for him to choose dinner ideas for a one week. Lol or maybe a gift certificate for a facial ☺️

  387. Kapree chambers says:

    Love the baby sneakers!!! Getting these for my nephew 😍

  388. Michelle Keller says:

    I think what I most want is to either plan a trip away after the new year begins so I have something to look forward to when the after holiday blues kick in. I’m especially worried they will be bad this year since the holidays are coming on the heels of my son’s fabulous wedding last weekend. Because of the wedding, my husband’s 50th birthday got slightly pushed aside and I turn fifty this year so I think we are due for a trip…that or finally invest in making our bedroom the dream one I’ve always wanted!

  389. Courtney says:

    All I want for Christmas is a new kitchen. Nothing major 💁🏻‍♀️

  390. Mary Bernard says:

    These are great! All I want for Christmas is a trip to Blackberry Farm….and to have a waistline again…someday….soon. 🙂

  391. Brandi Mcmillan says:

    I really want a Dutch cooker for making soups, stews, or even to use for the holidays. Also let’s be honest I think they look really pretty sitting on your stove! I just love your gift guides you really had great suggestions!! Also you crack me up on a daily basis so I love watching your stories!!

  392. Kate says:

    One of the best gifts I’ve received (and then gifted others because I loved it so much) was a subscription to Cocktail Courier. Every month, I’d get a delivery with all the ingredients for a super unique cocktail recipe. I typically only drank vodka but the subscription got me to try lots of new liqueurs, bitters, botanicals, etc. that I never would’ve picked myself. Now, I recreate my favorites for parties and holidays!

  393. Marguerite says:

    Great ideas! Thanks

  394. Laura Dougherty says:

    Spa day, airline miles, house cleaner for a year, wine of the month club

  395. Leslie Morgan says:

    Your gift guides are so good! I want a. lot. of. things. But topping my list are a gift certificate for a massage, vitamin C serum, and a new Daniel Wellington watch.

  396. Bonnie says:

    A pre-planned trio or full day date where you didn’t have to do any of the work/research/booking. Just show up:) best gift!

  397. Kate says:

    I can’t figure out why, but the emails always come a date late for me. I received yesterday’s blog post this morning at 5. Tomorrow I will get this one. Any idea?!

  398. LaurIn lee says:

    I love to get a variety of gift cards and have a designated kid free day to spend them. My husband is in charge of childcare arrangements too!

  399. Tara says:

    Great gift ideas for all those hard to shop for people

  400. Andrea says:

    Thank you for helping me get a handle on Christmas lists this year! Such great recommendations! The best thing my husband bought was a luxury handbag I would NEVER buy myself. It was a complete surprise that he planned months in advance. The funniest thing I’ve ever received- a drugstore hair straightener. He thought I needed it?? 😂

  401. Angie says:

    I just made my Christmas list from these gift guides!

  402. Chloe Humphries says:

    Love this! I really want an iRobot vacuum so I can stop sweeping and vacuuming my hardwood floors! Nothing glamorous but I think a lot of mamas would love to get one!

  403. Alex says:

    My husband always gets me new socks every year. I throw away the old to make way for the new. Practical and I love fresh socks!

  404. Marcy says:

    I’ve been DYING to but the Barefoot Dreams CozyChic In the Wild Throw Blanket – I cant think of anything better than being snuggled under that thing with the fireplace going ☺️

  405. Aranda says:

    Look forward to the gift guides every single year!

  406. Monica says:

    This year I’m asking for a dyson cordless vacuum because cleaning sucks and maybe a cordless vacuum will make it a little more fun

  407. Jessica says:

    Great gift for a wife… dyson vacuum!!

  408. Charlotte says:

    I would love for my husband to know that I really just want a vacation. Doesn’t have to be huge and can be with him, but a three day trip somewhere would be nice.

  409. Jenn says:

    Killer gift guide, as always! I’ve become a fan of experiences for gifts, because my husband and I both have a tendency to get things we want as we see them. Our gifts have ranged from concert tickets and sporting events, to weekend getaways. I think one of my favorites was snowmobile tour followed by a spa/soak in some natural hot springs!

  410. Emily says:

    Super helpful gift guides! My husband tries really hard but I prefer buying my own gifts, because that way I get what I *actually* need/want. This year I’d LOVE the new Charlotte Tilbury palette with 12 shades, but I have flashbacks to when he bought me a neon, glittery Urban Decay eyeshadow palette that I couldn’t return and would NEVER wear! 😂

  411. ElizABeth dieas says:

    Le Labo Perfume.. not under $100 but so worth it!

  412. ChloE says:

    These gift guides are amazing! A day at the spa gift certificate wrapped up in a big cozy robe or the chance to control the remote for a month!

  413. Dani says:

    Would LOVE a new, long-lasting, easy to maneuver, set of luggage! Thanks for putting in all the work to post these guides, they are so helpful!

  414. Shannon says:

    A booked appointment at the spa/salon etc. appointment already booked is key! I pile up gift cards and never make time to go!

  415. Liz says:

    Im “gifting” myself so many of these! And maybe a few for everyone else! Great gift guide! Thank you!

  416. Kristi Bishop says:

    Silk pillowcase!!!

  417. Kaci says:

    You seriously have the best gift guides!!!! I would really just actually like to sleep in and then spend the day in my house alone, as a stay at home mama that never happens.

  418. Kami says:

    Love your gift guides! I bought my husband the ear pods from your list last year. Still his favorite gift to date!!!

  419. Heather says:

    First of all, LOVE your gift guides! I really want a LV crossbody this year. My diaper bag/toddler days are over and I’m tired of lugging around a big purse. Not sure which one I want though, so I’m open to suggestions. Second on my list would be a pre-planned wknd getaway with no kids!

  420. Emily says:

    Your wife really does want that micro planer she has on her Amazon wish list, so she can cook you all the yummy things. She also wants a LV never full so she can look fabulous keeping track of all your kids crap. 🤪

  421. Tara says:

    Love this post Cristin, Im gonna dive into my Christmas shopping starting here! As far as my favorite “out of fhe box” gift – hilariously – having a remote start added to my car!! Haha sounds crazy but, can I tell you how much I LOVE that feature on a cold morning and think about it so often in the winter!

  422. TAylor hEnry says:

    Best gift was a sound machine to drown out the hubs snoring at night. Gotta love some white noise

  423. Shalane says:

    Thank you for all of the great ideas!

  424. Wendy says:

    One of my favorite gifts is a gift certificate to the car wash to get my car detailed (the works). Also, tickets for a concert or play and dinner. My uncle surprised my aunt with a trip to Hawaii – she didn’t know she was going until they were at the airport. She thought they were there to bring her friend. My uncle arranged time off with her work and even packed her bags, even going into her make up bag and buying duplicates so she wouldn’t suspect anything.

  425. Miranda neal says:

    These are all so great and detailed!
    I drooled over the Bissell Crosswave floor cleaner for months before my husband finally gave me the green light to get it! It’s pricey, but it makes cleaning up after two kids and dogs SO much easier, and I was One happy wife haha. It would also be nice if he thought of a “mommy” gift from the kids. Something homemade from them, or a piece of jewelry that represents being their mom.

  426. lauren says:

    A lot of great gift ideas for all price ranges! I love the gray and white plaid pajama set. Might be buying a Christmas gift for myself!

  427. Meghan Lillis says:

    I need all the beauty suggestions for myself!

  428. Wendi Matt says:

    If I didn’t have to stay under $100, I would want these Fortress of Inca boots bc I love them so much. But with the budget, I’d like like a necklace from Spectrum Handcrafted in Greenville!

  429. Sarah good-Kerby says:

    Pick me!!!! I love your page and insta. Thanks for always sharing!

  430. Rebecca says:

    Love this guide!
    This year I just want a cute diaper bag that is stylish and actually holds everything!

  431. Angie hammond says:

    The top things that I’ve been gifted that are game changing…Ninja Foodi-I use it 4/5 times a week! Also, a possible cleaning service once a month, spa day with a friend or mom, and currently I really want a Love Sac couch! Haha

  432. Kate Fogle says:

    Laser hair removal!

  433. Catherine says:

    I love all your beauty guides and I think I need to try out some Charlotte Tillbury items.

  434. Love all of these recommendations! Makes Christmas shopping so easy.

  435. Ali says:

    I want a porch swing for our front porch. But one of those ones that’s more like bed than a swing.

  436. EMma says:

    Best gift – Sorel booties, best gift under $100 mini facial

  437. Kim says:

    A really great pair of pajamas- cause mama needs some sleep!

  438. Loretta Eggleston says:

    Definitely a new Fitbit watch!! Trying to not fall off the health wagon…again haha

  439. Anne says:

    So excited for this gift guides! Something for everyone!

  440. Amanda says:

    Hands down the best gift my husband ever got me was a purse I had basically been drooling over for months, but since by 30th birthday was coming up in January, he hid plane tickets inside and surprised me with a trip to NYC.
    I love that he paid attention to something I wanted, but also did something that he knew I would love without having to mention!

  441. Erin says:

    I’d love a gold bangle with a personal message inside or a good facial! Would also love some uggs! The newer style that aren’t so clunky looking 🤣

  442. Jess says:

    Honestly, I asked for a fancy rechargeable toothbrush with the antibacterial UV lights from my husband this year. Not glamorous, but I’ve always wanted it. However, it was a bit of a splurge to me. So him buying it instead makes me feel less guilty. Haha. Merry Christmas to me!

  443. Lena says:

    I love that you have non-electronic items listed for the guys!! My ideal would be a trip (even if it’s 45 mins away) to just enjoy some time with my hubby!

  444. Jen Carpel says:

    A night at a nice hotel with a spa alone!

  445. Stephanie looser says:

    Love all of these ideas!!!!! Thanks so much for sharing!

  446. Katie says:

    I love these gift guides, so many good ideas! My favorite gifts have always been experiences, so that’s what I’m hoping for this year. Concert tickets, maybe a spa day, something that I wouldn’t usually buy for myself.

  447. Jessica says:

    Slip silk scrunchies! Ugg ankle boots!

  448. Heather Harris says:

    As a mom of four kids, I would love to get someone to clean my house. I would also love some new workout/lounge clothes.

  449. Kaylee says:

    I’ve been looking for a good black legging. It’s hard to find a good tight fit. Going to try Zella! Thanks!!!

  450. Jinger says:

    I’m a big fan of CASH MONEY. For a fun shopping spree (always more fun with someone else’s money) or that new A/C unit we just had installed. Literally yesterday 💸💸💸 someone come over and tell me how beautiful my new air conditioner is please!!!

  451. Ashley Pugh says:

    Your gift guides are always my favorite! On my Christmas list this year are Petite Plume pajamas and the Kate Spade Margaux Large Crossbody. I definitely wouldn’t turn down a facial or massage either!

  452. Amanda says:

    We love experience gifts the most! If we need material things, we will usually get them throughout the year, but for birthdays/holidays/anniversaries, we like to do trips, concerts, shows, etc. Always the best memories!

  453. Sarah Trapp says:

    Absolutely love all your finds. super helpful leading into the holiday season!!!

  454. Jessica says:

    Always love your gift guides! Thank you!!

  455. Nellie says:

    I would like one Saturday or Sunday a month to do me- errands, work undisturbed, cash in the message gift cards my husband has given me the last three Christmas… does the gift of time count?

  456. Carol Stice says:

    I want a wireless charging station for my iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods.

  457. Melanie lw says:

    Loving all these options! Free shipping is a huge selling factor for me as I’m the only person in my family out of state so I got to ship EVERYTHING “home” for the holidays!

  458. Amber diano says:

    Love all of these ideas, Cristin! You can tell that you put your heart & soul into these gift guides and I appreciate that you keep everything reasonably priced! Merry Christmas to you and your family! ❤️

  459. Meredith R says:

    Honestly I’d really love a house cleaner. We don’t have that in our monthly budget so if my hubby bought me a couple months of house cleaning I would be sooooo happy. Adulting is fun. 🙂

  460. Alexandra somrak says:

    I would love to have my car detailed for Christmas. I am on the road for work 3-5 days a week. There are random kernels of popcorn, wrapper pieces and bottle caps hiding beneath my seat that I don’t have time to fish them out. Nothing makes me feel fancier than stepping into a clean car in the morning… until my 11 month old blows out in her car seat and reality smacks me in the face. 😊🤮

  461. Claire says:

    Great gift guides! You are making my shopping a breeze.

  462. LaUren Inman says:

    I told my husband I want a new Longchamp bag for work- holds my laptop and all the things and is so durable! I bought a cheaper knock off and the corners ripped in a couple months. Can’t beat the Longchamp! Works great as a diaper bag too!

  463. Schlayn says:

    These guides are amazing and I’m definitely going to be choosing a few items from them. One of my favorite gifts I’ve received are Ugg slippers. They are a little more than I would have spent on myself but made an awesome gift!

  464. Ashley Thomason says:

    Best husband gift is a new Kate Spade purse every Christmas

  465. Sally Davies says:

    We are expecting our second baby, so I want a piece of jewelry with my babies initials on it. Love seeing the things you post!

    Much love!
    Sally

  466. Maryellis says:

    A whole day of nothing – massage, hotel room booked, room service, solo shopping and no decision making or kids for the day.

  467. Laura says:

    Anything ugg! And a night at a hotel alone would be wonderful!

  468. StEphanie hess says:

    BOTOX! Or gift card to my dermatologist office and gift card to spa! I’m hiding from my family posting this right now so basically just alone time! Your gift guides are awesome! Thank you!

  469. Baylee says:

    All I want for Christmas is a spa day!

  470. April Z says:

    We are planning a trip in February which I always think is a great gift!! One year my husband got me everything from Sears, (yes, many years ago!) a hair dryer, a vacuum, a toaster and a blender! He said it was all things I had been complaining about wanted to replace, haha! I thought it was funny that everything plugged in! Needless to say he has learned from his Sears shopping days!! Hahaha!! A trip, you can never go wrong at Anthropology, and lots from the Nordstrom beauty section and pjs are fav gifts!

  471. Ashlee says:

    I love all your gift ideas. I have been hunting for a good robe for the kids and the ones you posted are perfect. Thanks for all your ideas.

  472. Crystal says:

    What I really want for Christmas from my husband this year is a wedding band, I lost weight a couple of years ago and mine fell off somewhere. So a ring….or Botox. Haha. My favorite gift he’s given me though was a pair of Hunter rain boots!

  473. Kathryn cox says:

    Spa gift certificate from the hubs

  474. Betsy says:

    I really want some dainty jewelry that is real but isn’t going to break the bank!

  475. Meghan Bayne says:

    Great gift ideas. Will be investing in one of the cubebots. For Christmas, this mama would love a ‘me’ day with spending money included😊 but will love anything I am given.

  476. NatAsha says:

    Love the Tula set such a good deal! Thank you for the great gift guides!

  477. Cindy says:

    I always get great ideas from your recommendations, especially for your girls. My granddaughters are the same ages as Scottie and Hayden.

  478. Amanda says:

    What Id really love from my husband is a getaway for us! Even if he just gifted the idea of a trip, ect would be nice.

  479. Kiersten Worthy says:

    Love these gift guides! They are so helpful!

  480. Libby Pryor says:

    Fantastic gift guides…have used them the last couple of years for birthdays and Christmas ideas! Always a huge hit! When we plan a trip together is always fun or jewelry have been some of the best gifts I have received.

  481. Lindsey phillips says:

    This is awesome Cristin thank you for such a helpful guide ! I personally am hoping for a spa day for my 20 week pregnant body haha !

  482. Jennifer says:

    Love your gift guides! Especially the beauty one, the Nordstrom 11 gifts and your last post on Nordstrom beauty. You’re making me want to buy for myself and not others. Lol jk. Well kinda. Thanks!!

  483. Terrin wright says:

    Love them all! I’m passing along those wireless earbuds and case to my husband as a hint! We usually do semi matching gifts or a trip. One year it was UGG slippers and one year it was Patagonia vests.

  484. Courtney says:

    So many great ideas! One of my favorite gifts from my husband has been a pair of earrings from Tiffany’s. It’s something simple, classic and I can wear everyday. A spa day is also always a winner! Although, this year I’m asking for a vacuum!! Lol.

  485. Abby says:

    I know this is weird but I’ve been getting really into bread making so I really want a bread proofer! Also a nice functional mid length parka!

  486. Sara says:

    The best Christmas gift that I received last year was a robot vacuum – that thing is magical!

    This year I am hoping for storage containers for our new pantry (hellllooooo home edit) or a nice facial steamer to add to my skin care routine! Thanks for all of your ideas and hard work!

  487. Kelsey says:

    Okay these are GREAT lists. I’m going to be referencing these a ton this season!!

  488. Laura wyAtt says:

    I’m totally lame this year since I’m pregnant and asking for all the comfy things – new pajamas and comfy slippers!!

  489. Rose stone says:

    Gift guide for your wife – gold hoops! Or David yurman! I love how Nordstrom sells all the good stuff!

  490. Paige says:

    SO SO helpful for shopping for my nieces this year. Thank you!

  491. Katie says:

    Thank you for these great ideas!!!

  492. Kelli fagan says:

    Spanx faux leather leggings is at the top of my list because I can’t pull the trigger and buy them for myself.

  493. Paige says:

    So So Helpful! My nieces will love some of these items!

  494. Ashley says:

    This year my hubby wants a 70” tv for his indoor cycling and I would love the butch block of global knives.

    I realize I had already commented once, but that was before you posted about the giveaway.

  495. Aifton says:

    I think I added about 5 things to my ‘to buy’ list! Thank you for making the Christmas shopping season so effortless and on point!

  496. Marisa says:

    I hate buying socks. I mean who care if they have holes or don’t match. My husband on the other hand has all the socks and replaces them regularly. So a few years ago he gifted me cashmere blend socks and now every year he buys me a new pair. 😂 So now I have a collection of nice socks for the winter.

  497. AShley L says:

    A maid to come in once a month to clean baseboards, windows, deep clean the floors whatever.

  498. Courtney says:

    Love these ideas! I am really wanting a pair of Hunter Boots

  499. Elizabeth says:

    Away luggage, facial steamer, NuFace, Barrington duffle bag, Roomba (or any brand wireless vacuum)… 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Thank you for the time you put in! All of your recommendations are so great & helpful!! 🙌🏼

  500. Lea says:

    Thoughtful gifts! We just do stockings and I recently had to go GF & DF for health reasons.. it’s made cooking harder! I want all the snacks! I want to eat out! I would love if my husband just thought about that and got me tons of snacks/ gift cards to places I can eat.
    But also a steam mop.🤣 this is 8 yrs. of marriage.
    Best gift I’ve ever gotten- a trip!

  501. Amanda says:

    Love. All. The. Things.
    Top item- warm long robe

  502. Kathy says:

    Loving these gift guides! For Christmas I would love an Apple Watch and for my hubby to plan a little weekend getaway for just the two of us, no kiddos!

  503. Valerie garrison says:

    I’ve been waiting on this post! It’s going to simplify my shopping but the $100 gift card would be the best because I need a mother of the groom dress for my son’s wedding and Nordstrom has the perfect one!

  504. Mallory Brinkman says:

    I feel like I’m a great gift giver except for men’s gifts! I used your Fathers Day gift guide previously and will be absolutely using your men’s gift guide this year!!

  505. Caroline says:

    These gift guides are the best! I would love a subscription to Book of the Month so that doesn’t come across the credit card statement every month. Also, a nice trip away just the two of us is never a bad idea!

  506. Ashley miller says:

    My wishlist has new dining chairs at the top of the list.

  507. Katie Dillard says:

    My hubby is so sweet to buy clothes, bags, jewelry, etc. All that stuff is great and I love it. However, now that I’m in my “twenties + 10-ish” I really want a new closet design/organization to store it all… It will then not appear that I have “excessive” amounts of clothing and warrant comments like… “you really need to weed some of that stuff out.” Whose fault is it really??!…

  508. Whitney says:

    Love the gift guides! I‘m always good with a LuLulemon gift card but this year I asked for the new Apple Watch!

  509. Elise says:

    Tons of good ideas! I’m asking for a silk pillow case. Nothing crazy over here.

  510. Emily kirchner says:

    Dying for new cross training shoes. #adulting

  511. Brandy says:

    I want new linens and a steam mop for Christmas! You know you are a mom when you want cleaning to be easier and sleeping/bathing to be more luxurious! LOL

  512. Kayla says:

    A Dyson vacuum! I have been wanting one forever bc that is what being an adult is right??

  513. April Towler says:

    Well this is all WAYYYY better than the garlic press and tennis shoes I got one year

    (after 10 years of marriage, he finally knows that when those practical things are on my list, those are for my mom or his–not him!)

  514. Tomi patterson says:

    I would swoon over a makeover/makeup lesson with all my own goods. The how to, what not to do, what I’m missing. Is there a way for a man to give that kind of gift?

  515. Mary Anthony says:

    What I really want for Christmas is an uninterrupted week with my husband and daughter and our soon to be born any day baby boy, all meals catered, endless Netflix, and wine.

  516. Lindsey patterson says:

    You never go wrong with your recommendations! I have recommended your page to several fellow military spouses; hopefully they subscribed for you!

  517. Chris says:

    Live your gift guides! So many fantastic ideas. What I would like to receive this Christmas is just time to spend with my two sons and my granddaughter. We seem to have less and less time to spend together. They have such Busy lives.

  518. Victoria Bristow says:

    What I want…
    More pillows
    New headboard
    Leather jacket
    New flatware

  519. Chelsea sequin says:

    Shopping made easy!

  520. Brandy says:

    Perfume & my fav was a pair of nicer sunglasses – something I use everyday

  521. Natalie says:

    You have everyone in the family covered for gifts! Thanks for being so comprehensive with your guide.

  522. Nicole moore says:

    What I really want for Christmas is a nice getaway in the mountains with snow! With my husband and kids. Doesn’t have to be fancy but I live in FL and I’ve never seen snow. Or, a peloton.

  523. KriStin Garrett says:

    I would LOVE a roomba!

  524. Ashley says:

    Would love super nice leggings!! We wear them all the time, we can breathe at holiday dinners, and they love our butts in them. Win win!

  525. jess becher says:

    Love love love your posts.

    Honestly for Christmas, what I would love is a trip. Doesn’t have to be Cabo or Hawaii or anywhere glamorous- but even an Airbnb in the mountains or something. A change of scenery and maybe he can buy the groceries ahead of time and not leave that up to me 🤣

  526. Sarah M. says:

    My most appreciated gift would be a weekend away entirely by myself! Totally guilt free. No side eye or passive aggressive comments later. Even just 36 hours…all to myself!

  527. Chrissi mcadoo says:

    So look forward to your posts!! I took advantage of the Backcountry sale and got a cute vest for a great price!

  528. Ashton says:

    Anything that is a “treat yourself” gift. Spa day, mani/pedi at the bougie nail place.

  529. Katie l says:

    Dyson vacuum! Or diamonds. Definitely diamonds.

  530. Emily says:

    I love a trial of a subscription! Last year I got three months of Winc from my boyfriend. It’s the gift that keeps giving and there are so many great subscriptions out these that I would never treat myself to!

  531. Briana says:

    A trip somewhere tropical for the two of us would be a dream!

  532. MeriWether McLaurin says:

    I feel like my gift theme this year is experiences. Love making memories with my loved once. I would love a weekend getaway or a fun unique date night as my gift this year. Or some cozy pjs 🙂

  533. BreanNa hughes says:

    Thanks for all the recommendations! I personally want new workout clothes/shoes! My husband and I workout daily and do CrossFit and I’m currently obsessing over the new “No Bull” running shoes. 😉

  534. Melissa says:

    I want so many things! On the expensive side: a big oushak rug and built ins for my new office. Or a romantic weekend at Old Edwards Inn & Spa! On the practical – but – still – nice side, I want some really high quality every day gold hoops and a sideways cross necklace. I never buy myself the good stuff that won’t turn green! Now that I’ve seen your gift guide, though, I want a lot more than I thought I did! OH! Professional kitchen knives. That one May be our gift to each other this year since we both like to cook.

  535. Alyx says:

    Love these guides! I want skincare things (like skinceuticals, etc) and then because I’m so incredibly practical i want a steamer!!

  536. Jane Snyder says:

    Roomba was on my list last year and it was best present ever! ( this makes me sound so old!)

  537. Jessica says:

    Love this! It’s so helpful! Thank you for sharing!

  538. Erica gibbs says:

    Girl, a WINE FRIDGE! If nothing else, we at least deserve a chilled glass of wine!

  543. RacHel Glenn says:

    I loveeee gift cards!! Get a gift card (or a few with like $20 each) and send her shopping!! I love gift cards because it makes me spend the money on myself and I get things I normally wouldn’t spend my own money on!!

  544. Amy says:

    I would love a cordless Dyson, which my husbands wonders why if we have a roomba and a corded dyson! My daughter would love that robe and anything unicorn 🦄

  545. Emily says:

    Just not another shirt/sweatshirt for my (or his) favorite team! I mean, I know he’d like that, but I don’t need any more of them!!

  546. Leann yandle says:

    I’d really love a great quality flat iron and curling iron! It’s practical, I know, but it’s something that will be well used!

  547. Kellye Arning says:

    Thank you so much for the gift guides! I don’t see how you do it all! My best gift would be a spa day… time to myself for a couple of hours to get a massage and a facial. Win, win!

  548. Jaime says:

    Loving rings so I’m hoping my husband listens and grabs the madebymary birthstone rings with my girls’ stones. They’re great for stacking.

  549. Katie cansler says:

    I would LOVE to have a pair of short Hunter Rain Boots! I also have been eyeing that Patagonia pullover on the Backcountry website! I’ve been hinting to my boyfriend for a while, hopefully he’s been picking up on it!

    The Certificate of Occupancy and a maid!

  555. JenniFer Marsh says:

    I want AirPods, a new pair of Spanx leggings and the magic sweater from Anthro you talked about today!

  556. Megan says:

    Your gift guides were beyond helpful. The only problem is now my own Christmas list has tripled. Ha!

  557. Lisa says:

    Love these gift guides, so many great ideas! Favorite gift from my husband was a pair of diamond halo earrings, something I would love to get this year is a spa day or AirPods.

  558. KAty deaveR says:

  564. Carrie longacre says:

  565. Carlie says:

    I’m turning 40 this year!!! Ahhh!!! So I really would like gift cards to a local and fantastic aesthetic nurse practitioner for all the things: Botox, kybella, juvaderm and the entire Dr Obaji skincare line for me!!!

    For less then $100 I would just like some alone time set aside weekly for myself. Like 45 minutes 3 times a week. (But that really shouldn’t have to be a gift!)

  566. Kristy says:

    Thanks for these gift guides! Honestly the thing I always want the most is the thing I have the hardest time spending money on- pampering myself. A trip to a day spa, a massage, whatever!

  567. Stacey says:

    I love a good LeCreuset Dutch oven (or staub). It’s great to set out for decor and we use it all the time. It was a great gift a couple of years ago!

  568. Brittany says:

    I told my hubby I wanted botox for Christmas. And also, sleep. Always and forever, sleep. 😆

  569. Kealen says:

    I love reading your gift guides. I have a daughter in between ages of both your girls and can’t wait to get some of the things!

  570. Jessica says:

    Such a great gift guide! Love shopping at Nordstrom since I’m a last minute shopper, and their shipping is so quick. Thanks for all of the gift tips. I’ll even be sharing this blog with my husband for some ideas for me… 🙂

  571. Jessica says:

    My daughter would love that unicorn bag! Might have to pick one up for her!

  572. Emily says:

    I’d love a gift certificate to a gardening service. We live in my grandparents’ old house, and my grandad was an avid gardener. So are we, but we don’t have time for it with a toddler. I’d be thrilled to know a lawn care service was coming to take care of my giant side garden in the spring. Take out dead stuff, replace timbers, plant new stuff, mulch. I’d plan for it all winter! It would be so fun to look forward to it!

  573. Kristin Morgan says:

    As a Mama of three boys, the best gift my husband has given me was a gift certificate to spend the day at The Grove Park Inn Spa!! Alone time and being pampered….What more could a Mom want!!

  574. JaclyN says:

    My favorites: Silk pillowcase, Dyson cordless vacuum, and skin care!
    Thank you for all your fun ideas too!

  575. Jennifer Hulett says:

    Full disclosure, I read your gift guides to see what I need to ask for not what to buy others! 😉 Thanks for such a well rounded selection! Happy Thanksgiving.

  576. Emma says:

    Best gift I’ve ever received – surprise diamond earrings! Maybe not under $100 but every wife wants diamonds!!

  577. Jenny G says:

    A night in a hotel. Solo. With a room service and spa treatments thrown in as well

  578. Jenny g says:

    Also anything from this list lol.

  579. Kacy says:

    For him to put his dirty clothes in the hamper and not leave his socks bales up!

  580. Lindsay myers says:

    Legit, this is the best gift guide. Thanks for sharing

  581. Ashley says:

    Rothys! I adore every pair I own. I also wouldn’t hate on a pair of diamond earrings or a Louis Vuitton never full😎

  582. Valerie says:

    Love your guides! I used to brag about being able to twirl fire so two years ago, I received a fire baton from my husband! At 55, at had to “perform” for a group of friends to prove it!

  583. Briony gafner says:

    Makeup and skincare. It’s so hard to spend money on on pampering yourself, especially when you can buy so many other things for your family.

  584. Kelley says:

    One of my favorite gifts is simple: a gift card to get my nails done and an hour or 2 to myself! Also, any type of experience gifts to do together… tickets to a game/concert, ax throwing/ropes adventures park, candle making class, happy hour bar hop around your city, etc.

  585. Katy says:

    Seriously, my fiancé need some help in the giftgiving department. This year for my birthday he gave me a home theater surround sound system. Don’t get me wrong, it’s very nice, during the 37 seconds I have to watch television during the day. So in honor of that gift, I’m going to give him a set of really really nice pans so he can cook my favorite meals.

    Actually for him, I am building a golf swing cage with a golf simulator situation. I think he will like that. I would like the pots and pans. Or the gen five cellular enabled Apple Watch so I don’t have to carry my phone when I hike.
    Thanks for asking. ☺️

  586. Lauren says:

    I’m getting married in 7 months. I wish my fiancé would just offer to get my earrings (the ones I want are not expensive) or a similarly priced skincare item that I won’t purchase for myself right now.

  587. Brandi says:

    Love these ideas!!! My only problem will be gifting them and not just keeping all of them for myself lol

  588. Chelsea says:

    Wow! These lists are amazing. My husband has not gotten me a Christmas gift that has wowed me in 7 years of marriage or in 12 years together! I have no awesome suggestions but I’ll just lead him this way LOL

  589. Cassie says:

    Love the idea of packing cubes/something travel related…with a trip/ticket/etc attached!

  590. Lauren dumas schryver says:

    a beth ladd monogrammed beaded clutch!

  591. Kerri Marshall says:

    I want a T3 curling iron! I know it’s expensive but I want it anyone. That’s what Christmas gifts are for right? Stuff we won’t buy ourselves!

  592. Mary Gomes says:

    Cannot stop wearing the Zella 7/8 leggings and I’m dying for the Charlotte Tillbury palette!

  593. Shannon says:

    I would love one of those beauty advent calendars! Just a little treat for every day my husband can’t think of a gift idea for his mom… gram… brother-in-law… or even himself!

  594. Allison says:

    Always love gift guides from you, things I bought and liked, and Megan at holy city chic. So glad you are sharing this one!!! I got an Apple Watch for Valentine’s Day one year and the next year for Christmas got a Barbour coat! Both pricey but last years and I love them both sooooo much! This year I have some legit skin care items on my list though! My sis and I have become obsessed with Jordan Harper (thanks Cristin)!!

  595. Brittany says:

    I love messages or facials. Something that I wouldn’t buy myself so it’s a special treat and way more enjoyable then an item I probably won’t remember or have the next year!

    God lord people stop buying people random bath/ perfume kits you see at Walmart, ain’t no body getting excited for those at Christmas:)

  596. KiM says:

    I would love a great family trip planned, some new Ugg boots, and a great straightener for my daughter. Thanks!

  597. Becky LiSton says:

    Love my ice roller! So cheap and great gift to give! Also I’m eyeing a diffuser for my house!

    I would LOVE the Patagonia pullover. It looks dreamy!

  600. Katie HuMphrey says:

    I honestly asked my husband to get me a year membership for a car wash, or a deep clean of our house very soon. I’m getting ready to pop out baby #2 any day now and either of those things will make my life significantly less messy. Haha.

  601. Kristen says:

    Definitely a trip of any kind!!!!

  602. Ashley says:

  605. Marissa says:

    An “off day” with no chores, no errands, no cooking, etc. You get it. 😂

  606. Emily says:

    My favorite Christmas gift has been my Yearly company bangle. My husband gave it to me for our first married Christmas with my new monogram.

  607. Meridith says:

    So my favorite present was for our first Christmas after we got married. He surprised me and created our wedding album. It was just so thoughtful.

  608. Abigail Ritter says:

    Ray Bans with my monogram on one side & his monogram on the other! He gave them to me at our first Christmas together years ago & now we are engaged. Still my favorite sunnies.

  609. Maggie says:

    Love these gift guides! Very helpful and sometimes items you wouldn’t think of.

    I would love gift certificates to buy myself makeup. Massage gift certificates. Soft, fuzzy blankets. Pampering items that you might not necessarily buy yourself.

  610. Kelsey W says:

  616. HayLey says:

    I just want a spa gift card from the husband so I can have a January me day after all of the chaos dies down!

  617. Jessica says:

    Love the gift guides!! My hubby and and I always plan a trip or staycation for one another!! I love that because it’s less stuff in my house , haha and then of course some quality time with my guy! I’m super corny and also set up dates for us throughout the year and then give him 12 envelopes one for each month that has our planned date in it:). It’s actually super fun. Can’t wait to read everyone else’s!

  618. CarSon says:

    Love, love these gift guides!!!

  619. Stacey says:

    Thanks for reminding me to get robes for my little boys! I would be fine if all I got was a Sephora Sephora gift card!

    Spa day!! Or just a coupon book where I can have him cook dinner when I’m tired 😂

  621. LindsaY says:

    NESPRESSO machine, tickets to a great concert or David Yurman!

  622. Ellen says:

    I would love for my husband to plan a date somewhere. Arrange a sitter and all the details!

  623. Jessica says:

    I feel like I’ve hit the motherload with following you in this past year! This gift guide just changed my shopping! Like where has this blog post been all my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your awesome work and dedication!

  624. KathrYn says:

    Love these ideas! Probably will request a Dyson/Shark this year from my husband (boring but so needed for our new house and messy toddler)! Thanks for sharing these gift guides.

  625. Maggie says:

    I think I’d love a really nice pair of gloves! Something I’d normally not buy myself but would feel great on and keep me extra warm!!

  629. Courtney says:

    I think sometimes the best gifts are experiences you can do together- whether that’s a trip somewhere new, concert tickets, a spa day, or tickets to a big game. As long as it’s thought through, I’m so in! Thanks so much for all your hard work on these gift guides, they really are super helpful!!

  630. Erin W. says:

  637. Kristen says:

    Thanks for this great gift guide! I want to get the Laura Mercier set for myself—I’ve been wanting to try some of her products! I’m planning on a series of chemical peels in the beginning of the year so I’d love a gift certificate or cash towards that!

  638. Ellen jenks says:

    I would love my husband to give me some amazing skin treatments, maybe microneedling?!?!? Loving all of the gift guides you post! Keep them coming!

  639. Ashley says:

    This must be how you know you’re in your thirties: I want good Obagi/Revision/ Skinceuticals skincare so I don’t feel guilty for spending that much money on my own, a trip to see Jordan Harper, design updates to my house, and a night at a hotel/spa BY MYSELF.

  640. CarolinE says:

    A massage, and childcare during!!

  641. hillary hribal says:

    Nordstrom always knocks it out of the park. A few things I would love from the hubs is a spa day gift certificate, ugg robe and a jewelry armoire.I get more practical the older I get and I’m not sure how I feel about it🤣

  642. Suzanne says:

    I love all things Jo Malone…perfume, lotion, candles, etc. I ask for this every Christmas.

  643. Madison w says:

    Love the gift guides! My most used Christmas gift ever is a pottery barn robe that my husband got me a couple of years ago. It’s so soft and I wear it just about every night!

  644. HAnnah peppers says:

    My hubby is an awesome gift giver..I’ve been given Uggs, Sorel boots, purses, jewelry, etc but I would love concert tickets to see some of my fave artists coming to Nashville. ☺️

  645. Katie says:

    Best gifts I’ve received for Christmas- Vitamix, gift card for laser hair removal (sad but true and FANTASTIC), Le Creuset Dutch oven, a stuffed 4 ft decorative gnome from homegoods, all the tula moisturizers, Kate Sommerville cleansers, Dennis gross peels, and retin A refills ❤️🎄🎅🏻

  646. Emily says:

    I want some Botox for Christmas!! Doubt my hubs will go for that though …

  647. Lori beth dalton says:

    As a mom who loves a good pair of leggings // spanx leggings whether the faux leather look or another they’re the best! I bought them last year during the sale and wrapped them from my hubs to myself 😂

  648. Leah says:

    We try and get very creative with our Christmas gifts between my husband and I. Same as you, we have 2 birthdays and a wedding anniversary in the month of November. It can get to be a very difficult time figuring out how to make all the purchases. One year I asked him to only spend $50. He did a very good job.
    Now that I’m older, 46😬, I would like things that are high quality and that I will have for years to come. A Gucci belt is on my list this year.
    Thank you for your gift guides.

  649. Ellen says:

    Love the silk pillowcase idea! I’ve been thinking about getting one of those. ❤️

  650. Amanda mooney says:

    Would love a new light weight yet cute crossbody for a mom on the go!

  653. Sarah davis says:

    Thank you for your post! On my random list:
    All the things from the container store (in purge/organize mode), booties – could use several different styles, a good jacket!

  654. Leigh ann says:

    I’m asking for some new watch bands, tennis shoes, and a big built in cabinet for our playroom (!).

  655. Lexe says:

    Love this post! A go-to gift for me is sending a cleaning service to the house. Not at all romantic, but completely fabulous.

  656. Michelle says:

    I just got a nice, quality hair dryer (Harry
    Josh) from Hubs for my birthday and it’s the best. I’m not good at buying nicer quality pieces for myself if a $20 hair dryer would get the job done so it was an awesome gift to get something I need but don’t want to buy for myself

  657. Sarah davis says:

    Oh and anything lululemon!

  658. Tara McGovern says:

    I want the new skin by blair Blair La Creme!! It seems amazing.

  661. Joann conklin says:

    Would love a great pair of UGG house shoes

  662. Ashley says:

    Hmm! Tough question! I love the idea of time away, but if my husband gave me a new robe, slippers and a coffee mug I’d be set!

  663. Danielle says:

    As of this morning I didn’t have anything big on my Christmas list this year. That was until I was sitting at Starbucks waiting for my order and a *VERY* real, *VERY* much alive MOUSE ran across the floorboards of my car. My reaction was not of the adult woman who is taking on the world caliber as I guess it should have been because people started looking at me like I had lost my ever-lovin mind. I believe the only thing that can be done is to burn the car to the ground and ask Santa for a new one. So to sum it up This Christmas (or Christmas season…like tomorrow) I need a new car because a mouse has taken mine and my ability to be seen at that Starbucks again.
    Thanks for the gift guides they really are great!

  664. Shannon says:

    A night off! A hotel room with room service to myself.

  665. Jennifer says:

    I LOVE everything in your gift guide! So practical and affordable, too!

  666. Virginia says:

    Neither a wife nor a girlfriend, but if I had a man in my life I would be asking for a green Goyard or Lake pajamas!!

  667. Theresa says:

    These gift guides are everything!! As for me- give me fresh flowers for a year ❤️ Like Bouqs or something like it

  668. Crystal jackson says:

    Great gift guides! Love when my husband gives me a gift certificate to my dermatologist for Botox or products 😊

  669. Ashley Baath says:

    Gift card to a medi spa to use on Botox, laser, Anything!!

  670. Hannah says:

    Your gift guides are the BEST! The perfect gift that I would love to get from my husband this year, would be to get my eyebrows microbladed! It would probably never happen because he doesn’t know what the heck that is!! Lol

  671. Lindsey says:

    I’ve been hinting a new sonicare #married

  672. Madison says:

    So many great ideas! We mostly just buy for the kids so I’ll be using your guides for my 5, 3, and 1 year old! Getting the Juno book immediately!

  673. Rebecca littlejohn says:

    I’m a Nurse Practitioner and I’m asking my hubs to get me a new stethoscope for Christmas! It’s something I will use everyday and will remind me of him while I’m at work!

  674. Rachel says:

    Apparently the word is out that you have the best gift guides because the first 4 gifts I clicked on to purchase for family members are already sold out. Lol!

  675. SaRa crawford says:

    I really want a silhouette necklace of my daughter! I’ve dropped about 10 hints in the past 2 weeks so the hubs can be on it!!!! Love the gift guides!

  676. C Edwards says:

    Love your guides! I would love a spa day, or a night or weekend away!

  677. Ginny Williams says:

    My favorite gift(s) from my husband are from the year he gave me a different piece of original art every day for the 12 days of Christmas! Something different every day- paintings, handmade jewelry, pottery, etc. Not fashion/beauty related, but gifts for 12 days was so fun!!

  678. Mandy lazisky says:

    Christmas shopping practically done ☺️ Thank you!

  679. CourTney says:

    Pretty and danty jewelry that doesn’t break the bank but also doesn’t turn green after 3 wears either! 🙂

  680. Carly says:

    Any brand of robot vacuum!

  681. Corey jensen says:

    What girls want from their husbands… if we are talking things that can’t be wrapped I’d say.. simple helpful things around the house like cook a nice dinner, maybe put the toilet seat down, put your clothes in the hamper and not just on the floor. You know things most people would do automatically. But for real, a small trip together, couples massage, I’m all for the fuzzy blankets, vests, Starbucks gift cards.

  682. laura says:

    My husband is all about practical gifts – like new brakes for my car or a vacuum – 11 years of this… what I would love is a gift of some new clothes for me! I go shopping I always end up buying new stuff for my daughter and forget about me #mumlife! But this mamma needs some new jeans!! And perhaps some Charlotte tilbury make up!

  683. Alyssa b says:

    Just give me a nail/ massage gift card and I’d be happy!

  684. Chelsey says:

    I haven’t seen some of these beauty sets! Thank you!

  685. ShannOn KIng says:

    These gift guides are great! Just out so much of it on my Christmas list!! I’m asking for cozy stuff- slippers, winter hat, and a new Keurig! ☕️ 🧢 🥿

  686. Kelley says:

    I love your gift guides every year!! I always find stuff my daughters from your selections! And I love the idea of “ experience “ gifts for my husband and I.

  687. Miranda stafford says:

    I’m asking for some nice sheets (I’m super picky), Patagonia gear, sneakers and the coop pillow! So basic.

  688. Jennifer says:

    Love these gift guides. They truly are helpful, especially for the men! I would LOVE a getaway that HE plans from start to finish, all details, including arrangements for the the furbabies.

  689. Aimee Myers says:

    Just wine. I’m a single mom.

  690. Laura carr says:

    My husband is all about practical gifts – like new brakes for my car or a vacuum – 11 years of this… what I would love is a gift of some new clothes for me!

    I want my fiancé’s credit card and 2 hours by myself at Nordstrom.

  693. Emily Bell says:

    Love these ideas!! My husband always gets me an original art piece for Christmas. You can find reasonably priced local artist and it’s a good feeling to know you get something special that also makes the artist happy!

  694. Lacy Usry says:

    I love helpful if they don’t know how to pick my style in things 😬😬 otherwise nicer things I don’t normally buy myself!! Wow that’s pretty specific🤦🏼‍♀️😬

  695. Ellen m says:

    A way to stay forever 29 and stop the 3-0 birthday from coming next year? A girl can dream. But facial gift cards will do instead!

  696. Brooke says:

    A cozy robe and some cute cozy slippers.

  697. Kara Honn says:

    My husband gave me Bose Wireless headphones a few years ago and despite the fact that I mainly wear them while power cleaning the house, which may have been his plan, I LOVE them 🙂 I also LOVE your gift guides. Especially for all things beauty!

  698. Savanna says:

    Best gift my husband got me recently was simple but it was just some super nice Nike sweatpants!! Sometimes I wear my sweatpants for years and forgot how comfy a brand new pair can be.

  699. Taylor Anderson says:

    The Sephora fragrance sampler! Always one of my favorites.

  700. Erin says:

    Love my coordinations collection bracelet from my husband!

  701. Megan says:

    An ice cream maker. As the antithesis to the Peloton bike you all got. But really, who doesn’t love homemade ice cream?

  702. Kelly says:

    I truly love your gift guides! They are so good & saves me a ton of time. Thanks for that!
    I always love a good spa day.

  703. Crysty Garrett says:

    We typically don’t ever know what to ask for and hubby’s birthday is next week right before thanksgiving but since our 15th anniversary is in April- he’s planning a surprise trip and we are both asking for gift cards! We already have so much stuff, we figured that would be something kinda practical and fun!

  704. Melonie wiesner says:

    So many good ideas! A new Apple Watch is on my wish list!

  705. Katie obrien says:

    A roomba is the best gift I have been given. Got it when pregnant with baby #2 and man it’s been great. Turn that sucker in and let her vacuum for you while you relax.

  706. Katie says:

    A new sectional for the living room!!!

  707. Lauren says:

    I want a silk pillowcase!

  708. Callie PilSon says:

    I love ALL these ideas! I think my favorite gift I’ve received was awesome seats to see Taylor swift!

  709. Mariel m says:

    I love these all! Thanks for sharing!

  710. Kelli brown says:

    Robo Vacuum!!!

  711. Missy says:

    A consultation with an interior designer, spa day, weekend getaway or Peloton would all be a dream! Love your gift guides- covers all the things!

  712. Courtney says:

    This year we did a long weekend trip to Nashville for Christmas! But if we were doing presents I would love to try out a weighted blanket or a good face exfoliater.

  713. McKinley says:

    Sweaters and comfy clothes galore!!!

  714. MissY says:

    Forgot another gift idea!
    A makeup application lesson with Lindsey Regan Thorne 😍

  715. Lindsey Underwood says:

    When you have a three year old and 6 month old toddlers the only thing I’m asking for Is A 24 hour stay in a luxury hotel room with room service and good spa treat ❤️

  716. LiSa Russell says:

    I love the gift guides! They do come in handy!

  717. Ashley says:

    What I want for Christmas this year is a night stay away from children and my husband. I want to stay somewhere with a spa so I can get a deep tissue and then go to bed. This momma wants to go to bed at 7:30pm and sleep in until 11am without any interruptions. #momtired

  718. Annelise Gomez says:

    We did a date night downtown Chicago. We did a carriage ride, a fancy restaurant, went the to the top of sears tower. It was such a magical night!!

  719. As for couple gifts, i think an espresso machine and frothy would be a great home gift we could both use! Practical, everyone needs coffee right? Something a little more fancy than just a keurig.

  720. Heather smith says:

    Best gift idea- shopping/dinner/hotel weekend booked for wife and bestie. Do. It!!!!

  721. Amanda says:

    First, these gift guides are amazing, thanks for doing! I have personally taken advantage of the drive up order pick up (for an emergency pair of Spanx) so I’m all in for Nordstrom!
    Second, you have a ton of comments to go through, and I only read probably a 10th of them but I think Tori (Nagley??) should win. Dying laughing! Been there, I get it! Or Paige, with the Vasectomy comment. So so funny!
    I have a Pinterest board for my husband. But best gift I was given was Justin Timberlake concert tickets for me and 3 friends. Best. Night. Ever.

  722. Lesley Napper says:

    Some of my favorite gifts from my husband have been my Apple Watch, eberjay pajamas and day at the spa wIth night in a hotel.

  723. Rachel says:

    I rally hope Santa brings me some miller sandals!!

  724. Tara smith says:

    I would say a nice set of Waterford crystal stemless wine glasses would be a perfect wife/gf gift!!!

    Love the gift guide!

  725. Heather says:

    The best gift my husband ever got me was a sapphire ring the Christmas after our son was born. Practically, I want a vacuum this year. Trips/experiences are always a good idea!

  726. Brooke brunson says:

    Love your gift guides! One of my favorite gifts I have received that wasn’t a getaway or a giftcard, was my Mac book!

  727. Erin Lozowski says:

    I’m a teacher so when my hubby fills my stocking with flair pens, it warms my heart. Haha

    Honestly I think gifts for trips or activities are the best. You get to make memories together and it’s not just another ordinary gift.

  728. Shauna says:

    I would LOVE a massage or spa day once a month for a year or forever! Ultimate Christmas gift, birthday gift, Mother’s Day gift, or you are the best wife ever gift.

  729. Lorin jones says:

    A Patagonia fleece pullover and a weekend getaway somewhere cold to put it to good use and get cozy!!!

  730. ShAina says:

    Loving all the gift ideas!

  731. Kristin says:

    I love packing cubes and it’s an easy thing to ask for from folks like my in laws. I would have never thought to ask for them!

    Also holy gift guides. Your effort and time is totally appreciated.

  732. Rachel says:

    I want an initial necklace with my babies and a diamond!

  733. KAREN says:

    Great gift guides. I will never be mad at a Sephora gift card 🥳

  734. LeiGh Anne says:

    Would love a Dyson hairdryer from my husband- I have really thick hair and just something about getting as a gift makes it so much more appealing!

  735. Arika says:

    My husband is going to get me a Roomba. Not very romantic but soooo wanted!!!

  736. Nicki says:

    Love all these ideas! I am going to ask for those black leggings and I also want some new slippers!

  737. Ashley says:

    Great guides! I love weekend getaways or mommy spa day for gifts

    Self care items, because I don’t buy them for myself: gift cards for my favorite nail place, or my esthetician.

  745. Ashley says:

    Thanks for including boys into the gift guide! These are some great finds! I enjoy your your content and your humor!!

  746. Melissa says:

    I’m checking out that Kiehl’s set for my hubs. As this is the year I convince him skincare is for everyone. As for me every year I hint leading up to my birthday and Christmas how much my back hurts in the hopes that I’ll get a really good massage. I’m hoping this is my year.

  747. KaTie says:

    You always have the best suggestions! This is the gift guide of all gift guides!! 🙌🏻

  748. ValErie says:

    Great gift guides! My husband thinks all gifts should be practical but my idea for gifts is that it should be something you wouldn’t buy yourself. Gifts that support a budding hobby such as a new camera lens or fancy bakeware.

  749. Katie says:

    I love your gift guides! I added a few you have featured to my cart already, but I’d be lying if I said they weren’t intended for me. Hellooo slip pillowcase! I would love for my husband to gift me a gift certificate for a chemical peel that I’ve mentioned several times throughout the past few months.

  750. Debbie says:

    Awesome gift guide. I appreciate all the work, thought, and time that went into this. The silk pillowcase and Laura Mercier travel kit are my favorites.

  751. Lizzie says:

    So many great ideas! As far as what women really want (besides a Dyson airwrap)

    Fancy cleaning stuff!!! Seriously. The Roomba was an amazing gift. Now they have a mop…. and nothing beats fancy vacuum cleaners with lights on them so you can really see the crap coming up!

  752. Cailin says:

    My wish list item this year is an espresso maker for lattes all day!

  753. Marie says:

    These gift guides are spot on! Makes me want to get all my shopping done early!

  754. Allie says:

    I am wanting a good pair of boots this year! Hopefully my husband listens 😉

    I love your gift guides and it helps for the difficult people to shop for especially!!

  755. MarLye says:

    This is so perfect!! Thank you!

  756. Cassie says:

    Mani/pedi afternoon with him keeping the kids 🙌🏻

  757. Cassie boyne says:

    I absolutely love your gift guides! They are so helpful!!!!

  758. Kristin says:

    So many great ideas! I just want a vacation!

  759. Kassandra says:

    I need to start by saying that we absolutely don’t want any bath gift sets lol. But a girl can never have too many Patagonia sweaters or vests!

  760. Sarah montavon says:

    Gift ideas

    Cooking classes to do as date night
    Spa day
    Mini getaway- make it bougie boys!

  761. Kemi says:

    I need my husband to get a vasectomy, so I have one less thing to remember. Ha! But seriously, I’m needing a dyson vacuum! Great gift guides!

  762. Becky jOhnson says:

    My husband got me a FabFitFun subscription for my birthday and in love it!

  763. Carrie fesperman says:

    Wow! These guides are amazing! So very helpful! Can’t wait to really dig into them this weekend as I prep for Black Friday.

  764. Catherine says:

    Love these guides! What mama REALLY wants for Christmas is the maid to come an extra time per month, a date night but by myself so I can go to dinner and a movie alone 😂, another band to stack with my wedding/engagement rings, a rent the runway unlimited subscription, a painting of my boys, a better electric kettle. Any one of these would be perfect.

  765. Hanna says:

    My favorite thing my husband gave me was my Maya Brenner necklace with my girls initials. I literally never take it off.

  766. Brooke says:

    A getaway or some kind of trip!

  767. Payton says:

    Maya Brenner initial necklace

  768. BrittanY says:

    Hmmm the hubs and I have been discussing doing a trip to Israel but I doubt that will happen this year. I love practical gifts though- give me all the gift cards to Hobby Lobby and I’d be set….. or a farmhouse table and benches for a homeschool room (kids sized)

  769. Brooke says:

    Love these ideas!

    A dyson hairdryer or a trip for just my husband and me would be so nice!

  770. Caitlin says:

    Weekly blow dry subscription, laundry service for a year, 4 hydra facials and a 3 night vacation to The Cloister. Please and thank you!

  771. Allison Roman says:

    Love all of these!! This year my husband and I are getting each other an espresso machine. Woop woop! I also love gifts that get me out of the house for some time away from kids/responsibilities: one night away at a hotel, massage, yoga class (new yoga outfit extra credit), etc.

  772. Cameron machen says:

    T3 curling iron, roomba vacuum, Not glamorous but a gift card to the container store so i can “home edit” my house!

  773. Sara says:

    Cuyana travel set (cosmetic bags)

  774. CassIe says:

    The anthro sweater from your story today 🤣

  775. Shannon says:

    I would LOVE a timeless and classic Louis Vuitton! 😂

  776. Sally says:

    The best gift my husband ever got me was a really nice sleeping bag. At first I was like, uh thanks. But that thing has come in handy over the years-through camping trips, several cross country moves, and countless Cub Scout overnight trips. Also, if a sleeping bag has been the best gift, you can imagine all the others!

  777. Kara says:

    Been hinting around for a Pelaton for awhile. Hoping this is the year

  778. Lauren burns says:

    A classic staple handbag. Tbd which one I will tell him 🤪

  779. Mallory says:

    Book me a massage because mamas tired!

  780. Colleen says:

    Good coffee maker, robe or date night

  781. Trisha says:

    You know you are an adult when what you want for Christmas is a new robe haha. Dying to try the Barefoot Dreams robe.

  782. Adelaide criswell-Browning says:

    Best present was a gift on the smaller side with plans for a getaway together wrapped in a big box with a big bow! A trip that he knew I wanted to go on together!

  783. Jaclyn says:

    So many good ideas here! I’d really like the new cuisanart like 6in1 toaster/air fryer/toaster thing that folds under your counter top. It looks so cool!

  784. Leslie says:

    Amazing list! I checked off a ton of Items on my list! Thank you!

  785. AdrIenne says:

    I really want the slip pillowcase but have not bought it yet!

    – that beautiful Anthro sweater
    Ideas that are always a hit:
    – facial/massage
    – weekend trip to the mountains/lake/Charleston
    – a monthly housekeeper

  791. April says:

    Shoes! Always shoes! But shoot I buy those myself so from my husband….good seats to see CLEMSON play in the Natty on Jan.13. Last year we had end zone seats at Levi but I want 45-50 yard line😬this year! #seatsnob

  792. Brooke says:

    Diamond stud earrings were the first Christmas gift I ever received from my now husband…and it’s all downhill from there 😂 Now I just get practical stuff like a new tennis racquet with Costco (lifetime supply) box of tennis balls and every other year I get a new pair of LL Bean sherpa slippers!

  793. Caroline says:

    So so helpful- like you thought of everything!!!

  794. Rachel mantooth says:

  798. Haley says:

    Any experience with the T3 hairdryers? I would LOVE one of these for birthday/Christmas!

  799. Madison says:

    Personally think the best gifts are something you wouldn’t typically give yourself/splurge on.. a day at the spa, recently received the new AirPods and love them (but wouldn’t spend that much on them for myself), or maybe just a nice big Nordstrom gift card for a shopping spree.

  800. Courtney says:

    I’m always a fan of a massage. Let me rest in silence (or whatever pure moods CD they have playing) while someone massages my neck and hands!

  801. Tiffany says:

    We gift experiences. Last year my husband gifted me a trip with my girlfriends. Had it all worked out with them and everything. I love to travel with him any chance I get but to have a girlfriend trip planned out for you was so unbelievably cool

  802. Allie says:

    I NEEDED these gift guides! Thank you so much!

    1. Botox

    My go to gift when the hubs asks is a house cleaner- please just buy me a person to clean my house- like the baseboards and door sundaes and fans- all that stuff that’s like a blue moon when I can get to it!

  806. Jamie says:

    Love all you Christmas ideas!! Thank you for sharing!!

  807. Courtney says:

    I’d love a new knife set!! Ours is about ten years old, and while it’s still ok, I’d love an upgrade!

  808. Allie says:

    I would love a cute bar set! Either in gold or hammered copper.

  809. Ginny Severs says:

    All I want for Christmas is a cleaning service. Seriously, hubs….
    Get me a deep clean for the house from a professional cleaner and I will have a coupon for once a month. It.would.make.me.so.happy.

  810. Ash says:

    Dyson air wrap is on my list. Actually anything Dyson has a home on my list and in my heart.

  811. Traci says:

    Awesome gift guides. I’m wishing for air pods or the latest T3 curling iron- maybe something barefoot dreams !

    Love your gift guide!! I’m a fan of a fun trip you can take as a couple!

  820. Rachel says:

    I love all of these!

  821. Mariah Achée says:

    Love these ideas! Watching your stories/posts about your dermatologist has made me want to ask for a Botox or really any kind of treatment gift card because I find it so hard to splurge on myself!

  822. Lauren Bernu says:

    A vaccum! I know it sounds like the anti wife gift, but it is what I really want… oh and spa day

  823. Marie says:

    I want a vitamix! Also, I ask for a cleaning service to deep clean the house since we host a lot around the holidays and I like to start the year fresh!

  824. Chris says:

    These are fantastic! Thanks for the gift-spiration! I take my gift giving very seriously and this year has been a struggle. 😉

  830. Anne says:

    Tickets to a concert, show, or game* together

  831. Brooke henson says:

    My husband and I are planning a trip to Denver for our Christmas gift to each other (business trip for a livestock show that I’m using as an excuse to plan a vacation) then spending a few days snow skiing. We live in Mississippi so I’m extremely excited about actual snow! So, if you want to plan a trip before January to Denver and surrounding areas, I’ll know exactly the things to do and restaurants to try!

  832. ChElsey says:

    Love your gift ideas- especially your beauty finds! This year I am asking for the slip silk pillow case and scrunchies! HUGE scrunchie fan over here. But can’t justify splurging for myself!

  833. Christal weber says:

    From my husband, I love activity gifts. Can be big like a trip or simple as homemade IOU for an after dinner walk through the neighborhood. It is two gifts in one. I get to enjoy the anticipation of the future time together and the activity itself.

  834. BrittanY says:

    I agree with the Patagonia! The last two years my now fiancé has gotten me a new pullover or vest. I’m asking for a kitchen-aid mixer this year since we are getting married!! Funniest gift was a camo jacket one year – he really wanted me to get into hunting with him lol.

  835. Lorena Patterson says:

    T3 curling iron. Looking forward to try it.

  836. Emily says:

    I’m always down for a monogrammed pair of pajamas… one of my all time favorite gifts was an electric kettle!

  837. Julie Johns says:

    Unlimited car washes at an automatic car wash. It not a glamorous gift but I loved it. We purchased a new black suv and my hubby knew I loved a clean car. I use it about every other day! It keeps the bugs off. Lol.

  838. Jacquelyn says:

    Honestly I’ve been stumped what I even want for Christmas – but I buy things you suggest all year long 🙂 this will help my husband figure out what to get me! I got him a new pair of bose headphones!

  839. Sydney says:
