I feel like I’ve been a shopping maniac since Thanksgiving. I’m thrilled to be in the wrapping stage right now and not in the panicked “Oh no, I still have so much to buy!”
I can thank the internet for my organization. If I had to buy everything in store with three kids in tow, I’d be shopping till the Fourth of July!
Here is my gift guide for 2015. These are items I hand-picked from companies I know and trust. I hope you find this information useful and that the list helps you find that perfect gift for your friend, loved one, co-worker or neighbor.
The Junkie Car organizer and activity station – The Junkie ($39.99) from BubbleBum is an all in one in-car organizer and activity station for kids that turns backseat boredom into a thing of the past by harnessing safely into the backseat to store activities, snacks and drinks conveniently between two kids. The innovative tech viewer allows kids to watch movies or their favorite shows on their tablet together in a safe secure manner while on the road. It’s built-in entertainment!
For Dad the snacker:
Annie B’s Artisan Popcorn tin ($36)- Dad will love watching the holiday bowl game with one of these buckets in his lap.
Why Annie B’s? The popcorn tins are already a packaged gift and festive enough to display at parties or gatherings. It’s available in 3 flavors: Triple Treat, Classic Assortment and Original Caramel. And the popcorn is gluten-free, made with non-GMO popcorn and is handcrafted in small batches in their nut-free facility.
Linges ballet flats ($49)- Linge Shoes’ leather ballet flats are comfortable and flexible women’s ballet shoes designed for modern life. Whether you’re working out, going out, or simply relaxing at home, Linge Shoes are a versatile and attractive shoe for your life.
Why they’re awesome: Suitable for indoor or outdoor wear. Plus, the foldable suede soles make them easy to stash in a purse or carry-on.
