For Her

Holiday Gift Guide_FOR HER_ATG FINAL

We can’t leave the ladies behind! Today, my top last-minute holiday gift guide picks for the gals in your life. Similar to the dudes, when curating this list, I tried to consider things that I would readily gift to a friend or family member of the female persuasion, but kept in mind a more reasonable price point. There are a few “splurge” items if your budget allows – but most items are under $40. Perhaps you’ll find some inspiration if you’re still on the holiday shopping hunt.

(And if you need some help with the guys in your life, I’ve got you covered here.)

The countdown continues. Happy shopping!

For Him

2014 Holiday Gift Guide_FOR HIM_ ATG FINAL

I cannot be alone when I say that I think men are the hardest creatures to shop for when it comes to holidays…or birthdays…or anytime, really. I learned this at a pretty young age when I used to rack my brain trying to figure out what to get my brother anytime a gift was necessary. Admittedly, I eventually learned (not too long ago, in fact) that an Amazon gift card works miracles when it comes to him – he can select just about anything in the world one could ever want or need. It’s a win, win.

But what about those times you want to physically hand out a good ol’ fashioned bow-bestowed wrapped present to the men in your life? You’re in luck! I’ve been thinking about this pretty heavily lately and curated a short list of ideas to prompt some last-minute inspiration (or if you’re like me, some “just in time” inspiration because you usually wait until the week before Christmas to even start thinking about holiday shopping).

I realize the blogosphere goes rather crazy with Holiday Gift Guides around this time of year and this is just another take on a very cliché December post, but I have to admit the “research” involved made my virtual holiday shopping experience quite fun and opened me up to new ideas when thinking about gift giving for men. When building this list, I tried to think of things that I would readily gift, but kept in mind a more reasonable price point. There are a few “splurge” items if your budget allows – but most items are under $40.

The countdown starts now. Happy shopping!
