If holiday shopping fills you with dread as you look at your long list, let me help! Every year since 2008, I’ve evaluated tons of products for my age appropriate gift guides and specialty guides but I only recommend the items I’d love to give as gifts, receive myself, or know that my kids would be thrilled to gifted with this holiday season. There are so many new products that vie for our attention as consumers as we look to purchase items for friends and loved ones but I’ve made it my job to only recommend the best.
My holiday gift guides have always been a labor of love and are presented without bias since I don’t accept paid placements for any item in my gift guides. Curating top gift picks is something I keep doing because of your incredibly positive feedback.
Each and every year readers and friends tell me how much my gift ideas help them find that special something for that tween cousin that a mom of boys wouldn’t known about otherwise, trusted items that you know your traveling spouse would love because they’re my must-have products that I pack on every trip, and affordable gift ideas for beloved teachers that were things I truly appreciated getting when I was in the classroom.
Since I know how important it is to make every dollar count, my goal is to get my gift guides published as early as possible so you can take advantage of holiday deals while ensuring that your shopping is a breeze!
