Holiday Gift Ideas: 12 Days of Ideas for Everyone On Your List

Capability:Mom and I are on our third year of the joint posting on the 12 Days of Shopping. Starting tomorrow, we will be co-posting on a variety of gift ideas for everyone on our list. She takes one category and I take the other:

For this year, we will be adding on to the ideas from last year. We hope this makes your holiday shopping a little easier! We had fun brainstorming ideas — 2 heads are definitely better than 1! We will also be continuously updating this series of posts until Christmas as we make new discoveries.

How is your holiday shopping going so far? Are you almost done yet? I always want to be done before December but it never turns out that way. Oh well. These lists were selfishly created to help me with my own shopping needs. I hope I am done by December 12, but I am afraid that I am not that together!

  1. This sounds like a great series! We’re almost done with shopping – expensive math book for DH (yes, that’s what he wanted), a big group gift for the kids. Got the grandparent gifts in the mail today. Then I had them draw names for each other – just have to take them shopping for those gifts.
