Gifts For the Children in Your Life
These cool markers write in shiny silver, but outline in a different color. So great for kids who like calligraphy or dressing up their notes!

If you have a Harry Potter fan in your life, then this cookbook is a must! Bunches of recipes for food mentioned throughout the Harry Potter series. It’s got great reviews!
Make grocery shopping more fun by letting your kids bring their own bag and help load up the groceries! My daughter and I bought some of these in London (where we saw them for the first time) and we love them! They can also be used to haul and store toys. Super cute! (The bags are stuffed into the animal heads. You can easily bring them in your purse to the store and then pull out the bags once you get there).
What a great way to encourage creativity! These magnetic building blocks have a full 5-star rating on Amazon after over 18,000 ratings!
Gifts For the Teenagers in Your Life
Do you have a teenager who struggles to communicate their feelings? This Reversible Octopus Plushie is just the ticket! Now they can show you how they feel without saying a word! (Shh! I got one for my daughter). Apparently these are big on TikTok (but I don’t use TikTok, so I wouldn’t really know).
If your child has an Apple iPhone, it’s a good bet they want Air Pods. The 2nd generation ones are cheaper than the newest 3rd generation, but you can certain get those if you want.
I recently used Air Pods while listening to a Rick Steves audio guide on a trip. I found them to stay in my ears so much better than traditional ear buds.
These things are so handy to have around the house! I’ve got one in the kitchen where I can set my phone down to charge as I’m cooking. Works with both Apple and Samsung phones. You just lay your phone on top of it–no need to plug it in–and it charges on the pad. Works through phone cases. Kids can charge their phones while doing homework in the kitchen without having to go get their charging cord.
As much as I personally hate selfies, teenagers seem to love them! Adding just a little light often helps give their pictures an extra bit of sparkle. This ring light is super inexpensive and has great reviews.
Teens are often very socially-conscious, and when they’re not taking selfies (LOL) they really do want to make positive changes in the world. Find out which cause is most near and dear to your teen’s heart and make a donation.
Gifts For the Young Adult in Your Life
If you’ve got a child or loved one going off to college (or already in college), this blanket is such a fun idea! Load it up with pictures of your family or their friends, and they’ll be sure to love it!
You can choose different sizes for this blanket. It’s inexpensive and has great reviews! Not sure how long it takes to ship, so you might need to get on this one if you want it in time for Christmas. If it doesn’t arrive in time, it can always be a graduation gift!
I just bought this for my daughter who is serving a mission for our church. This is perfect for any college or dorm situation where a person needs to keep their shower supplies organized and easily transportable. Isn’t it so cute?
This is genius and perfect for bunk beds or situations where there is no nearby table. Just slide this under the mattress, and you have a handy bedside shelf for books, electronics, and a glass of water! I like this one better than others I’ve seen because it has a groove so you can stand up your phone or tablet.
My daughter loves the Polaroid picture look. It’s so fun for decorating your wall or sharing with friends. With this device, you can print photos from your phone on the spot! Super cool!
Even if your child is living in the dorms and gets cafeteria food, they’ll want to go out occasionally with friends. They’ll be thrilled to get gift cards to favorite restaurants.
Amazon has TONS of gift card options. Just click here to go to the Panera card, and then scroll down to see a whole bunch of other restaurant options.
Gifts For the Foodie in Your Life
This set of cutting boards is reversible, dishwasher-safe, and comes in a variety of colors. They also have grooves for catching juice (no more chicken juice on your counters!) These are totally on my wish list for this year!
I personally know the author of this cookbook, and it is fantastic! If you have a bread machine that has been gathering dust, now is the time to break it out and start baking! I got this cookbook and seriously want to make every single recipe in it!
If you don’t have a bread machine, maybe it’s time to get one! I use mine a lot just to make dough. Then I form the dough into rolls or my own loaves to bake in the oven. It makes it SO MUCH EASIER than doing everything by hand!
This is totally on my wish list this year. I’d really love to be able to make some non-carb noodles with things like zucchini, and this is just the ticket! This comes with seven different blades so you can customize things. Looks super fun! Also comes with blade storage and a recipe book! (I think I’m just going to buy myself this right now!)
Let me tell you, I am so excited to use this for my holiday cooking! In the past, I’ve never had a fat separator and have always been in a big hurry to make gravy. But this separates the fat super fast, and then you just press a release button to let the broth out of the bottom. So cool! The lid also strains out any solids, so it’s the perfect companion for gravy-making!
Gifts For Home Organization
I got one of these for myself, and I LOVE IT. It has taken all the aggravation out of storing plastic lid containers! They no longer fall out of the cupboard, and I can always find exactly the right lid for the right container! Seriously. You need this.
I also love these for storing my family’s shoes! Everyone gets their own, so shoes aren’t scattered all over the floor!
I’ve got one of these as well, and I love it! Easily displays all my jewelry and keeps necklaces from getting tangled. I don’t have a lot of bracelets, so I store my earrings in the pockets instead.
These will really help organize your pantry! They make your food items easily visible and readily accessible!
I love that this has two tiers, and a larger center section for bigger bottles and cans. If your spices are a mess, it’s time to upgrade!
I don’t have one of these myself, but I’m considering getting one for my daughter. She is a diver and is hoping to go to college in Hawaii, so one of these would be ideal!
I don’t know about you, but every time I travel, I worry about the state of my toothbrush. With this handy portable toothbrush sterilizer, I don’t need to worry any more! If there’s someone in your life who travels a lot for business or pleasure, this is a must-have item!
On that note, if you want to sanitize a multitude of items (like your cell phone, masks, glasses, earbuds, etc.) check out this contraption. Super cool and gives you peace of mind.
This thing is so cool! Not only shows you your weight, but also your body fat percentage, muscle and bone mass, water weight, and more. I’m totally getting one of these ASAP!
If you have a super-nerd in your family, they will LOVE this! A floating speaker with lights? It’s like having your own personal mini spaceship!
