My Favorite Gift Ideas for Everyone

I really do love gift guides and always feel like people can use a little help in this department when they are shopping for the holidays; but this year, I just haven't had the extra time to put them together.  They can be quite time-consuming.  And honestly, there are so many other good one's out there, you don't really need mine :)  Instead, I thought I would keep it to one simple post and just give you a few of some of my favorite ideas this year (most that have been tried by me)! 

 || Yeti 30oz Rambler Tumbler {$39.99} ||
This cooler goes EVERYWHERE with me.  People stop and ask me about it all the time and I really can't brag about it enough.  I've been pregnant or nursing for this entire year and it's been such a lifesaver to keep me hydrated.  The ice stays in it for-ever! I take it to bed with me at night and there is still ice in it in the morning.  (And if you're local, Pizzaz in Gulf Breeze monograms them for free!!)

|| Emily Ley Simplified Planner {$58.00}||
I've tried different planners for the last two years and am finally going with the Simplified Planner this year.  I love the looks, size, and layout of this planner so much.  Even though I use my phone a ton for scheduling these days, I still love to have an old fashion calendar around. 

 || Velvet Crate ||
This is a new-to-me company that helps take all the stress out of gift giving.  They have figured it all out for you!! They have developed several different "gift packages" and all you have to do is click purchase.  The prices include shipping and no sales tax if you live outside of Kansas! I love this concept so much.  They have some cute birthday gift ideas too which makes for a great surprise to a good friend.

For Him {$68}

Dave's Coffee French Roast "Black Crow" Coffee// Jack Black Supreme Cream Triple Cushion Shave Lather// Sock 101 The Thompson Blue and Navy Striped Sock // Liddabit Sweets Bourbon Bacon Caramel Corn Popcorn

For Her {$58} 

Illume Balsam & Cedar Candle //  Liddabit Sweets Sea Salt Caramels // Rosanna Star Trinket Tray //
The Social Type "Cheers!" Matches

 || Yeti Beer Holder {29.99} ||
I know I already mentioned the Yeti Tumbler, but I have to mention this beer cooler for the men too.  Hell, I'd even like one of these for myself.  This baby works better than any Koozie out there and who likes warm beer??? Not me!!
I've mentioned this company before and can't get enough of all their cuteness.  I love this little party kit for NYE.  How many of us hate making plans for NYE???  It's always such a hassle and usually a BUST.  This little gift could make someone's NYE a party right at home.  It's even great for the kids!

This kit contains:
6 Meri Meri confetti poppers
Time capsule with 6 custom memory sheets
6 Meri Meri gold and white star cups
6 black and white striped paper straws
3 Adorable tassel party hats and 3 New Years Eve Tiaras
6 Party Partners Rainbow horns
Custom 2016 banner
Photo props including neon shutter shades, glasses, mustaches and lips

 || Established Home Vintage Finds {$45}||
Where are my fans of the blue and white ginger jars and vases out there?? If you have a collection displayed in your house, you need to add this pineapple!! I'm pretty obsessed with this little number plus lots of other cute gift ideas from this store.  They have some darling linen cocktail napkins for the bar too! 

|| Shutterfly Photo Ceramic Mug {$21.99) ||
I can't finish a gift list without including Shutterfly.  Photo gifts make the best gift and I will forever believe this is true.  My family asks for these every year and they always want a phonebook made from any trip we've had together too.  I always love to give these gifts.  Check out the calendars as well, because those are easy and fun too.

I hope this helps you with some last minute gift ideas!! What is one of your favorite ideas for gifts this year??  I'm always needing some new ideas!

  1. These are great gift ideas! I love the NYE party kit!!

  2. We have 2 of the smaller yeti tumblers and we use them SO much that I got hubs the bigger one for Christmas. Also, fun socks are always a hit! I found some great ones at J Crew for him this year. That blue and white pineapple… I seriously die. I have an obsession with anything and everything blue and white. Merry Christmas friend!

  3. yeti's are on my list and I need to get busy placing that order! A friend put together a NYE kit for us one year complete with a nice bottle of champagne and it was so fun to have. Shuttefly is always a last minute gift lifesaver. I'm glad you reminded me because I typically make calendars every year and skipped last year...my family is going to be not happy if I skip again!

  4. My fiance is going to love you hah! I just got him the coozie. He has the tumbler and loves it

  5. Those velvet crates look really cool! I love that idea! I also need to get a Yeti cooler cup one of these days :)

  6. Yeti is everywhere this year! I'm going to have check out their stuff + Velvet Crate for my father in law... by far my hardest person to shop for!!

  7. Great gift ideas! We got my dad that Yeti tumbler and I know he'll love it!

  8. Oh my gosh! Just last night I was thinking...I need that drink cup that stays cold/hot forever...what was that brand again, and couldn't find it! Thank you...check my brother's gift off the list :)

  9. I've toying with the idea of buying a Yeti tumbler, but didn't know if they were worth it. I might have to gift one to myself. My sister LOVES Emily Ley's planner, but I haven't ever bought one. I HAVE to have a planner so maybe I need to check those out too. Great guide!

  10. Thanks for the mug idea! Just bought 2 for my mom and MIL! Dying over that pineapple! I love ginger jars!
    Ally- Life as I know it

  11. All such great gift ideas! I've been hearing a lot about yeti lately! I'll have to check them out! Love the mugs and he 2016 party kit! So fun!

  12. That pineapple is too cute! Loving that planner, and those Yeti coolers are everywhere. My husband wants one so bad! Great list!

  13. Girl, this is a good list! I could snap up that Yeti beer cooler for way too many people and I may want a few things just for myself ;)

  14. This is a great list of ideas. I’ve ordered Dave’s Black Crow Coffee before and I can’t recommend it enough. I usually don’t like super dark coffee, but this tastes great and gives you the caffeine kick you need to get your day started the right way. In fact, I’m going to order another bag right now.
