12 Lists of Christmas

It’s the most wonderful (and busiest!) time of the year!

I love Christmas, but I don’t love the stress that comes with running from one crowded store to another trying to find the perfect gift for everyone on my list.

Over the years, I’ve learned that Christmas shopping can consume the holiday season when all I really want to be doing is making gingerbread cookies with my kids, drinking hot chocolate by the fire with my hubby or enjoying a holiday meal with family and friends.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed with figuring out what to get everyone on your list, you’ve come to the right place!

As our gift to you, we’ve compiled 12 lists for everyone you’re shopping for and handpicked our favorites to feature in this 2023 Holiday gift guide. And, to make it extra easy, all of the items are on Amazon which means you don’t even have to leave your house to get your shopping done.

Less running around means more time with family and friends, and less stress means more holiday cheer.

So sit back, click away and enjoy your holiday season!

1. All I Want for Christmas

Are you ever caught off guard when someone asks YOU what you want for Christmas?

Well, this year I’m going to be prepared when someone asks me what I want! I already made a list of all the things I want, and you are more than welcome to use my list to make your own.

Here are some of my favorites on the list:

  • RENPHO Eye Massager – If you get migraines like I do this heated eye massager would be the PERFECT gift!
  • Saranoni Oversized Blanket – This blanket is super soft, very warm and big enough to share. And, it comes in a variety of colors to choose from.

  • DAMA Inflatable Stand Up Paddleboard – I’ve started paddle boarding in recent years, and I am in love! This paddle board is stylish, well-made and comes with everything you need for a fun paddle boarding experience.

2. Christmas Gifts for HIM

Why is it sometimes so hard to shop for husbands or the men in our lives?

If you’re feeling the same way, no worries! We’ve got you covered with our Christmas Gifts for HIM idea list.

Here are some of our favorites on this list:

  • CHAOREN Ratchet Belt – This is my husband’s favorite belt. He likes that it’s adjustable for any size, easy to use and super stylish. It’s made out of real leather and is well made.

  • Spikeball Pro Kit – Whenever we bring our Spikeball set somewhere, the men always come running. They love this game! And this set is top-notch quality. It’s durable and made to last.

3. For Kids – 7 and Under

Let’s be honest…little kids are the most fun to buy gifts for! They’re happy with just about anything (including the box sometimes). But, as a parent, I am looking for certain characteristics in toys.

All the toys on this list are high quality meaning they will last, they inspire creative or active play, promote learning and thinking, and will keep your kids engaged for long periods of time.

Here are some of our favorites on this list:

Our idea list for kids 8 and older is packed with great gifts to give those older kids who seem hard to shop for.

Here are some of our favorites on this list:

It may seem like they already have everything, but we promise they don’t! We’ve got some new and exciting gift ideas that we just know they will love.
