One of my absolute favorite parts of the holidays is shopping for gifts, wrapping gifts, and on Christmas morning, watching loved ones open these gifts. Robbie and I host my family at our place, and we make a bit of a production out of each person individually unwrapping his/her presents by the fire while drinking hot chocolate and mimosas. We take the time (sometimes a little excessively, I’ll admit), to enjoy each gift one at a time (something that will undoubtedly change once baby is born and old enough to unwrap presents of her own!). We also have an agreement not to spend a lot of money, so although there may be a bigger, more practical gift or two thrown in there, it’s more about fun, smaller gifts that fit each person’s personality. For today’s holiday gift guide, I’m sharing a round-up of the type of presents I’ll be giving this year (including a couple that I may have already purchased – shhhhh!). The best part is that they’re all under $ 25.
Have you started your holiday shopping? Do you focus on smaller, fun presents, or do you go for the bigger, more practical gifts?
