It’s hard to believe, but Christmas Day is only ten days away

ThingsWeLove

I know I say this every. single. year., but where has December gone? Amazing.

If you’ve been putting off gift-giving, now’s the time to finish the task so you can move on to actually enjoying your holidays (for me, crossing off my gift list always feels like such a load on my shoulders). If this is you, I’ve got a few suggestions.

Yes, I recommend first shopping locally and with small businesses — always. But, I’m also a realist, and I completely get the convenience of shopping online, especially if you’ve got small children (going to stores with them during the holidays: my nightmare), a heavy workload, or a busy holiday schedule.

Shop our Gift Guide if you can. Then, check out my recommendations below for gift ideas via Amazon.

Here’s a few of my gift recommendations.
