Although Trivial Pursuit is not a new game, we just bought the family edition this year and have so much fun playing this together on game night! We often grab some fun snacks or dessert after dinner and settle in to play a round. The game comes with both adult and kid cards, so everyone can enjoy the challenge at their own level. The questions are both fun and educational—so it’s a win-win!
My sister-in-law bought this huge set of 100 gel pens for my daughter a year ago, and since then, I’ve bought both myself and my mom a set. There are a wide variety of colors to choose from as well as sparkle pens included, and they are very long-lasting! No need to worry about running out of ink midway through an intricate coloring page. A great gift for artistic kids and adults alike!
Our daughter LOVES these high-pigment colored pencils and they are absolutely perfect for travel! She takes them on every flight, road trip, and even to church sometimes. They roll up into a canvas case that conveniently snaps closed, and they come pre-sharpened with a sharpener included as well. This would make an excellent Christmas gift for any little artist in your life!
I have been a big fan of Olaplex products for years when they’ve been used on my hair in the salon. However, I had never bought any for myself or used them regularly until early this year. The dramatic difference this has made in my hair over the past few months has been amazing! Just work one pump through your towel-dried hair and it moisturizes and smooths your hair so well. I can’t imagine ever being without this product again!
This nugget ice maker is a HUGE hit at our house. We love this ice maker so much that when we travel in our RV, we take bags of the ice with us to have on the road. If you have never had pellet ice—you’re in for a real treat. It is perfectly chewable without damaging your teeth, and it takes on the flavor of your beverage—it’s heavenly! It’s well worth the investment and space on your countertop!
Bake like a professional with this one simple tool! It comes in various volume sizes, but this is my go-to for perfectly portioned cookie dough. It helps to keep your delicious cookies uniform in size and shape and makes scooping out dough super easy. Have a baking enthusiast in your life? This would make the perfect Christmas gift!
This towel warmer is the luxury product I never knew I ‘needed’! I received it as a Christmas gift from my husband a year ago and have been enjoying its lavish comforts every chilly morning since. It can hold two bath towels at once and gets them nice and toasty while you shower. Once you try this cozy amenity, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!
I’m one who doesn’t wear a lot of makeup—a little eye liner and chapstick and I’m out the door. But on days I need a little coverage or want a smoother look, this is my favorite foundation product. You need very little and it gives such a smooth natural glow. If you prefer a more organic look, you’ll love this lightweight cream foundation.
I truly do not go a day without this product! I have a tube in every bag, purse, and nook and cranny just in case. I actually received this from a friend at a “Favorite Things” Christmas party about 10 years ago, and I haven’t used another chapstick since. It is perfectly moisturizing with just the slightest hint of color. It also comes in lots of other flavors, but this is my favorite.
This has become a family favorite on re-order for myself and my daughters. I love getting to keep a colorful family calendar, personal planner, and Bible journal with the opportunity to erase. Offering unlimited do-overs, these beautiful pens are a dream for the not-so-perfect perfectionists!
If someone you love enjoys making their own cocktails at home, this is the perfect gift! It comes with everything you need to shake, stir, and pour delicious concoctions, and has a stand to store each item. You can beautifully store the kit when you aren’t using it, too.
If you fill countless notebooks each year with your ideas, notes, and writing, this is an amazing gift! With this notebook you can still handwrite your notes (as I always prefer to do), but you can then upload your notes to the cloud and keep them stored in different folders, so you will always know where you find what you need! When you’re finished, you can just erase your notes with a damp cloth—and start again!
While cooking, I always find it such a pain to measure salt and pepper out of their original containers. These bowls make it so easy and are super cute as they sit on your counter! They would make a great gift for the home chef in your life.
I often wind up with my neck hurting, likely because I sleep on my stomach. I kept borrowing my friend’s back massager, so eventually she gifted me one for my birthday! It has multiple settings and quickly loosens the crick in my neck. It has been a lifesaver!
If you enjoy foam in your coffee and want to be able to make lattes at home, then you need a milk frother! This one can even do cold foam for those iced lattes. The foam is always my favorite part of lattes at a coffee shop, and now because of this frother, I can make them at home just the same!
If you’re looking for something to keep you warm and cozy this winter, look no further than my favorite lounge pants. Soft, warm, and stylish, they come in a variety of colors and patterns, and have become my go-to for those chilly winter mornings, evenings, or let’s face it, any time of the day!
Stylish and practical, these wool, fleece-lined cold weather headbands have been the perfect accessory to protect my ears on those cold mornings at the bus stop or on family winter walks—and, as an added bonus, they can even serve as a cute way to hide a bad hair day … or several.
I have tried and failed to finish several gratitude journals over the years—except for this one. I enjoyed it so much, in fact, that I felt compelled to buy several copies for friends and family so we could do it together. Beautifully illustrated with questions that invite you to go a little deeper in your daily reflections, I found this journal to be a helpful companion to cultivate a heart of thankfulness in the midst of a busy season.
My husband drinks a lot of seltzer. So much, in fact, that we realized we needed a better alternative to all those accumulating plastic bottles. Compact and super simple to use, this soda stream has been a game-changer for us, reducing both our weekly grocery bill and environmental impact—not to mention giving us the option to create our own delicious flavors any time we like.
I love to snuggle down with my two daughters under a blanket on cold evenings and read this beautiful “Brave Girls Bible Stories” storybook. More than 30 brave women of the Bible are brought to life in relevant and engaging ways through colorful illustrations, modern-day examples, and discussion questions to help your daughters learn to live out their faith in practice. You definitely won’t mind reading “just one more story” with this treasure on hand.
I have to confess this felt like a frivolous purchase for us at first, but now I’m hooked! This robot vacuum comes in at under $150—way less than some of the name-brand robot vacuum cleaners you’ve probably heard of—but it does the job so well! You can set it to run around the edges of your home or to run randomly across the floor. I was so surprised by how much dust and dirt it picked up, and just running it a few times a week keeps our house much cleaner—AND saves me so much time!
I’m all about a good pair of slippers. There’s something about slipping my feet into them after a long day that just feels like a warm hug. I bought these moccasin slippers last year, and they have served me so well! Because they have a durable rubber sole, I’ve even worn them outside a few times, and even with daily wear they are holding up so well! Slippers are the perfect gift for that cozy-loving person in your family!
I recommended these waterproof Chelsea ankle boots last year, and they are making my list again. I am still wearing the same pair I bought two years ago, and they have held up so well even with almost-daily use during the winter seasons (even a Colorado winter!). I love that I can wear them with dresses or with pants, and I can easily slip them on and off (making them perfect for early morning walks with my pup). I have them in dark brown, and if anything ever happens to them, I would buy them again in a heartbeat!
I bought this backpack last year because I needed a bag that would allow me to easily transport my laptop and other daily necessities. I found this one for under $40 on Amazon, and it’s been perfect! It easily fits my laptop, my large hydroflask water bottle, some snacks, and other little items I might need. It’s great for a work outing at a coffee shop or as a personal item for a plane trip! It has several zippered pockets that are great for storing headphones, chapstick, my phone, and other little things. Plus the faux leather exterior is beautiful and has held up to my almost-daily use!
I first read “Hinds Feet on High Places” by Hannah Hurnard several years ago. I found myself in tears as I was reminded of our gentle Shepherd’s kind heart towards us, even as He walks us through difficult paths. This engaging visual version of the book contains beautiful illustrations that bring the story to life, and the intricate cover makes it perfect to lay out on your coffee table (although I assure you that you’ll benefit from reading it much more than simply displaying it!). It would make the perfect gift to a dear friend (or to yourself!).
Was I influenced to buy this on Instagram? Sure was! I gifted myself with this tumbler after surviving the first trimester of my latest pregnancy, and it really did help me stay hydrated through the rest of it! I only had to fill it twice a day to meet my hydration requirements, and the water stayed ice-cold all day (a MUST when you’re nauseous!). It comes in a ton of cute colors and it fits in regular sized cup holders as well.
Baby gates are so necessary to keep your little ones safe, especially around staircases. But why do they have to be so ugly?! I searched high and low for an affordable gate that didn’t stand out like a sore thumb and finally found one. This gate swings both directions, is an attractive wood color, and can easily be lifted and removed if you’re having people over!
Little kids are prone to sore ears either from a lingering cold, poor mucus drainage, an ear infection… you name it. But no one wants to rush to the doctor every time they start complaining! Without fail, a couple warm drops of this oil in my child’s ear always offers some relief. It’s so nice to have an affordable home remedy on hand.
Sadly, kids can’t seem to tell the difference between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. Luckily, this clock exists to offer them a visual cue about when it’s appropriate to wake up for the day! You can set bedtimes and awake times so that it changes colors automatically, as well as nap time lengths. It was a game-changer for keeping our son in his room later in the mornings.
