Mama's Holiday Gift Guide

There are two kinds of holiday shoppers:

  1. Those who plan out exactly what to get their friends and family and do all their Christmas shopping in November (or earlier!).
  2. Those who have no clue what to buy for their loved ones and find themselves stressing out in the middle of a store that has been picked clean of all the good stuff on the evening of December 23rd.

Whether you’re Type A (that’s us - Allie & Lisa!) or Type B, finding the right gifts for all the special people in your life can be tricky and a bit time-consuming, especially when you’re in the middle of decorating, baking, planning holiday traditions with the kids, hosting, etc.

Fear not! We’re here to help you take the stress out of Christmas shopping with our easy-to-follow holiday gift guide for friends and family.

(Note: Gifts listed below are in the $50-$200 range and some contain links for affiliate marketing. Though we obtain a percentage of commission on products sold, this does not affect your purchase price.)

The special man in your life deserves a special gift! If he’s looking to improve his health in the coming year, is already a fitness buff, or just wants a really cool watch, this watch has it all.

The Nike+ SportWatch is water resistant, has GPS, tracks heart rate, pace, and distance, and he can enter his info online to compete with his friends! It’s definitely on the pricier side, but we have a feeling he’ll get lots of use out of it!
