Holiday Gift Guide

December 2, 2017

Okay, is anyone else like me and does their holiday shopping last minute?

I’ve decided to team up with one of my favorite local bloggers and create a gift guide to make things a little easier. Layla over at Layla Living is taking on gifts for the ladies in your life while I am breaking down gifts for the guys and kids in your life.

Shoutout to Chick Fil A @ Oakley Station for sponsoring this guide!


1. Jord Wood Watches 

I absolutely love Jord watches! Derrek has been eyeing the men’s watches since I got mine. I surprised him with a Jord watch of his own for Christmas this year! You can even get the watches engraved! I think Jord watches are timeless and beautiful, but my favorite thing about Jord is their story. They value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. Want an instant discount code?

2.  Man Crates

With these man crates, the possibilities are endless! I linked the Bloody Mary Crate because that’s something my dad would love! They have so many different options on their webpage, I can get lost on there for hours. Derrek would love the Beard Wrangler Mini Crate. These crates come as so much more than a gift, but an experience. The crates come with a laser etched crow bar so the man in your life gets to crack them open and be surprised by what’s inside!

3. Marshall MAJOR II Wireless Headphones

These would be great for any guy in your life: brother, dad, uncle, boyfriend, etc. They are wireless with 37 hours of playtime! Check them out at the link above. I found them on Best Buy with an over $60 savings!

4. 100 Deadly Skills Survival Book

This book would make a great coffee table book in any man cave! It’s a hands-on, practical survival guide from retired Navy SEAL Clint Emerson—adapted for civilians from actual special forces operations—to eluding pursuers, evading capture, and surviving any dangerous situation.

5. Giorgio Armani Cologne

Derrek uses his cologne very sparingly, so I typically get him cologne at Christmas. I use perfume like I’m swimming in it, so mine will last a month…his lasts a year! This Giogio Armani scent is our favorite! Tip: buy it at Ulta so you can use your rewards card and earn cash back to gift yourself!

6. VTec Smartwatch

This watch is so cool for kids. What a fun theme to get all my boys watches for Christmas? My boys are always asking me for a fitbit to track their steps. This watch has games, activities, photos, and also tracks their steps like a fitbit!

7.  Baby Boy Bakery Subscription

I love the idea of giving experiences vs gifts! The Baby Boy Bakery subscription is both! Each month your family gets a cooking kit with family friendly tools to make a unique recipe. The mom who created this kit holds a special place in my heart. Click here to read more about Baby Boy Bakery and a video of our monthly box this past summer.

8. Moonlite Starter Pack

This is so cool! The boys absolutely love story time at bed. What a fun way to take it to the next level?!

9. Soggy Dog Board Game

This looks like it will be the next Pie Face game! I can see many giggles at the dining room table playing this game. I love giving board games to kids for the holidays. There’s nothing more fun than opening a fun game and playing right then and there on Christmas!

10. Click-Fil-A Gift Card

Okay, still not sure what to get? I know something that won’t disappoint…a gift card to Chick Fil A! Even though a gift card can seem not as thoughtful, there are ways to spice it up! Give a gift card to the little ones in your life to Chick Fil A with a homemade certificate that gives them a Saturday breakfast with one hour of play time in the indoor playground! (Fun fact: Chick Fil A has the cleanest playgrounds!) OR Give a gift card to your significant other with a certificate for a week night dinner date with no cell phones!

I hope this guide inspired you to get those last minute gifts ordered. Thank you to the Oakley Station Chick Fil A for sponsoring our gift guide. Click here to check out what Layla suggests to pick up for the girls in your life. Want to win a $50 Chick Fil A gift card? Click here for more details!
