2016 Holiday Gift Guide + Free Printable Gift Tags

Happy happy joy joy Lovelies!! Three cheers for the holidays. I love this time of the year so much I could squeal! While I know December and the thought of shopping, cooking, errands, parties and galas may be stressful for some, I encourage you to take a few minutes to breathe. Take it all in. You don’t have to do everything.

You don’t have to give your kids a million plastic toys, you don’t have to get them the latest sneakers or phone, you don’t have to go to every recital or class party.

You don’t have to go to the white elephant party. You don’t have to go to the company holiday party.

You don’t have to entertain out of town relatives, you don’t have to have your house perfectly decorated like the pages of a magazine.

You don’t have to run out on the 23rd and get any last minute gifts. Nope. Not at all.

You don’t have to bake a million cookies. You. don’t.

The beauty and joy of the season will still be in abundance. If you want to take some time for self-care and reflection, you should do that. The holidays shouldn’t stress us out. I cringe thinking about how flustered everyone is and how we all run ourselves ragged.

Are we really enjoying the holidays? I’m one to talk, my son’s birthday is smack dab in the middle of it all. December 20th. I have a kiddo birthday party to plan and execute and it gets hectic. I want to enjoy it!

I have done the hard work for you and curated some of my favorite gift picks for everyone on your list from stylish and hardworking mamas to overworked teachers. I even threw in ideas for tweens and guys. There is something for everyone.

Sip on a hot toddy while you shop and then download this sheet of printable gift tags to wrap up the gifts in style.

Just download the pdf and print on cardstock. Tie with some pretty ribbon and you are done.

I’ve thought of everything for you because I love you so much!! I can’t thank you enough for your support of the blog this year and I hope to bring you more fresh content and tips in the coming years.

I can’t wait to see your gorgeous creations with the tags and gifts. Tag me #luckyandlovely and have a joy-filled holiday season.

    Thanks for the suggestions – especially the teen ones. I have a few teenagers to buy for and I always find it a bit of a struggle. So thank you!!
