It’s Gift Giving Time – Who Are You Buying For?
*UPDATED* to reflect only in stock items for 2022
Hey! Happy Holidays! I finally finished my holiday gift guides, with ideas for the whole family.
Whether you’re buying for your significant other, your kids, your in laws or your besties. I’ve rounded up some of the coolest things I could find on the internet this year. Items I’d just love to have for myself, or gifts I would happily buy for others. Beloved items I have bought for my kids in years prior and now I’ve bundled all the ideas up to share them all with you.
When you shop with me this Christmas, I may get a very teeny tiny affiliate commission, and it means the world to me when you do choose to shop things I’ve shared, or even just click a link. I will be releasing a few more guides in the next few weeks, but hopefully this helps kick you off. Happy holiday shopping!

Gift Ideas for Kids 7-12
This is the age bracket of my own kids, with some of their personal choices and recommendations. My 10 year old Keaton has been loving Snapships, a better alternative to legos in his opinion, as they are really easy to rebuild. They are dying for the Icee machine, they won’t be getting it. LOL. And I’ve only linked the Switch for tech. This is my preferred gaming device for my kids, because there are no ads like iPad games, and the platform is safely designed for kids, so they are begging for first person shooter games, with very easy parental controls through their app.
