One of my love languages is gifts, so when it comes to Christmas I really want to get the right gift for those I love. Sometimes we need ideas to find that right gift. Here are some of my favorite gift ideas for friends, family and kids.

Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug
I really dislike cold coffee and have tried many travel mugs over the years but never found one that kept my coffee warm very long. This is a DREAM for coffee and tea drinkers! I have left my coffee out in the car in winter for two hours in 10 degrees and my coffee was still hot. Another bonus there are a ton of colors to choose from.
Keurig K55 Brewer
Continuing with the coffee and tea theme is the Keurig Brewer. We have used our Keurig B60 Brewer multiple times daily since 2009 and it is still going strong. A comparable version is the Keurig K55 Singer Serve Brewer. I love having the ability to brew a quick cup of coffee using the K-cup or using the Ekobrew stainless steel reusable basket with my own coffee. The Keurig is a time saver for those rushed mornings.
The health tracker industry has grown over the last several years which is great for the consumer. Back on Christmas 2012 my husband gave me the Fitbit One and it is still working like a champ. While I love that can fit into my pocket discreetly, it can be misplaced if I’m not careful. Another option (which I am looking at for future gifts 🙂 is the Fitbit Charge 2. You wear it as a watch and it will count your steps, heartbeat and sleeping.
Melissa and Doug
When it comes to kids, one of my top favorites for toys is Melissa and Doug. They are quality made toys and I do not need to worry if my little ones accidentally chew on the wood pieces. Also these toys have survived my two boys (which is amazing) and now their little sister is taking her turn.
On the creative side I have loved using the Tombow Dual Brush Pens for my creative projects and hand lettering. These are high quality markers with a point and brush end. I would not suggest these markers for kids but for teenagers and adults these are great.
The Happy Planner
I love the Happy Planner as a gift for tween and teen girls who are creative. I have used the Happy Planner as a memory planner and recording my Bible reading during devotional time. There are so many accessories as well for the Happy Planner which makes it a great hit.

Body Whip Sticks
For your friend who loves living naturally, check out Primal Pit Past Body Whip Sticks. This has help keep my arms and legs from becoming dry during the winter. This whip stick is organic along with being paraben, soy and gluten free. If skin sensitivity is an issue I would suggest using unscented.
I love supporting small businesses, especially creative entrepreneur moms who are balancing a side job with their family. This is one of the reasons I enjoy shopping on Etsy. Another reason I love shopping on Etsy is the unlimited potential of finding gifts for those hard-to-shop-for-people. Though scrolling for hours on Etsy can be fun, I am saving you time and sharing some of my favorite gifts and ideas.
- Funny and unique shirts
- Family name sign or wall art
