My top finds for the holidays with my 2017 Holiday Gift Guide! Something for just about everyone on your Christmas list!
I have been working on putting this together for DAYS! I have searched high and low across the internets to find some awesome ideas for everyone on your Christmas shopping list and just maybe a thing or two to add to your wish list!
I know I talk about it all the time, but I’m a true procrastinator and that certainly includes Christmas shopping. It seems like every year we say we will slow down for the holidays. Each year it seems like so many things come up and we are running crazy.
If that sounds familiar, I hope that some of these ideas will help you at least get started!
I am starting with my favorite food gifts! These gifts are ideal for those folks who are hard to buy for or really don’t need or want anything. Everyone needs food, right?
Everyone loves something special and these gift ideas would make just about everyone on your list pretty dang happy. I love food gifts because they are something that gets used up, it’s not one more thing cluttering the house.
They are also perfect to send to those friends and relatives that live far away. I do this every year for our family that lives in Wyoming. These food boxes are my tried and true favorites, y’all!
I serve as an ambassador for Petit Jean Meats and it makes the best gift!
- Petit Jean Signature Gift Box It combines three of our signature items into one gift box that is perfect for sharing with your family and friends. Includes: 1/2 Spiral Smoked Ham, 24 oz Smoked Bacon, 24 oz Peppered Bacon
- Petit Jean Breakfast Box includes 1 Cinnamon Coffee Cake, EZ Carve Smoked Ham Slices (16 oz), Peppered Bacon (12 oz), Thick-Sliced Bacon (16 oz), and Fresh Sausage (16 oz).
People’s Choice Jerky is going to be your new favorite gift to send. My guys consider themselves to be jerk experts and they couldn’t get this box opened fast enough! It’s all seriously amazing! This is the second year in a row that I am recommending this. It’s that good!
People’s Choice Jerky have been handcrafting premium meats for over 87 years and four generations in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles. Our heritage, tradition, and dedication to quality have inspired us to create a website to tell our story and offer handmade beef jerky to those that appreciate things that are made with purpose. ~ It is very reasonably priced and the quality is beyond amazing. The perfect gift for any guy on your list.
I’m also giving a shout out to McCrae’s Caramels – it just doesn’t get any more decadent than this. I got a nice little gift box with these caramels from Nielsen Massey that also included the amazing Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar and Nielsen Massey Coffee Extract.
Spiceologist Everything your spicy heart desires. I am a huge fan of this spice company and their Top 8 Spice Rub Set makes an amazing gift for anyone who cooks! Includes: Smoky Honey Habanero Chile Margarita Rasta Rub Greek Freak Black Magic
Pink Peppercorn Lemon Thyme Cowboy Crust Tandoori Glory. They are all amazing and will take your cooking to the next level of deliciousness!
LeCreuset makes a wonderful gift for anyone who loves to cook. I use my LeCreuset Braiser weekly, it is seriously the best for everything from pot roast, to pasta to my recent Tuscan Sausage and Potato Soup. Truly an heirloom piece that will last for generations. Get the LeCreuset Braiser from Amazon.
LeCreuset Heritage Oval Covered Casserole. This is a super thoughtful gift for anyone who has a kitchen. I have the square baker and it is the best for roasting chicken and making my famous chicken and rice casserole. Get the LeCreuset Heritage Oval Covered Casserole from Amazon.
Farberware has the best set of Restaurant Pro Aluminum Nonstick Skillets ~ offers restaurant-quality cooking performance right at home. I have the all three sizes and can’t recommend these enough and they are totally budget- friendly! Buy them on Amazon: 8 inch, 10 inch, 12 inch.
Farberware Aqua Baking Pans. Y’all know how much I love this color and I love this bakeware. It bakes everything up perfectly and is SO easy to cleanup! Totally affordable and a great gift for anyone with a kitchen! Buy it on Amazon: Muffin Pan, Cake Pan, Baking Sheet
I have become obsessed with Fiesta! It’s so bright and colorful and totally collectible. If you hang around here long, you will notice it in many of my food photos and videos. It’s oven safe and makes the prettiest table settings!
Kuhn Rikon has a fabulous set of maple spoons and the handiest little veggie spiralizer and those polka dot paring knives. Who wouldn’t love those? All would be great stocking stuffers. I’m also loving this gorgeous wooden trivet for a hostess gift.
Cuisinart offers an amazing line of countertop appliances. The Cuisinart®’s Chef’s Toaster Convection Oven is a must! I use my toaster oven every single day and this one will hold a 9 x 13 pan and cook a whole pizza!
The Cuisinart 16 Cup Popcorn Maker is for serious popcorn lovers. I know there’s one on your list! We are popcorn fanatics and make popcorn at least a couple of times a week. I am pretty darn excited to have one that will make enough to feed the whole clan!
This year I decided to go with gift ideas for kids that are not electronic. I know my own kid gets too much screen time as it is. All of these are easily ordered from Amazon.
The Ball of Whacks is a standby for my list of great gifts for kids of all ages. It’s a magnetic puzzle that kids just can’t put down.
Kanjam is a great game for all ages with 2 portable official goals and a custom-designed official kanjam flying disc. Pretty fun game that you can take anywhere or play it in the backyard.
Spikeball is a fun, active, and competitive (if you want it to be) 2 on 2 outdoor indoor sports game played outside with rules kind of like volleyball.
I’ve been following Hat and Field Supply on instagram and I’m just totally in love with all of their design and the fact that they are from Oklahoma! They are offering the cutest gift box trios including this I Want S’mores Box. Totally affordable unique gift idea!
In case you missed it, I have opened a little store for my family’s Red River Iron furniture business and I’m adding in lots of home decor and gift items! If you are looking to support small business this year, I’d love for you to check it out!
Okay so I hope this gives you at least a few ideas to get started or finish up your shopping list! Merry Christmas Y’all!
