2017 Holiday Gift Guides

We all know that Christmas shopping can be overwhelming, but these holiday gift guides should help make the job just a little bit easier.

Can you believe the holidays are here?! Snowman shaped sugar cookies, twinkle lights, and peppermint hot cocoa are now officially in season…which means it’s also time to start Christmas shopping (unless you’re already on top of that, then kudos to you!). But, if braving the cold weather and crowds sounds frightening to you, I avoid stores like the plague at this time of year, never fear! I’ve created a few gift guides to help you conquer the holiday shopping, and you don’t even have to step outside. Win. Plus, most of the items can be purchased on Amazon Prime, because, who doesn’t love free TWO-DAY shipping?! And you’ll still get your gifts in time for Christmas even if you are a last minute shopper (guilty!).

It’s time to pull out your laptop, crank up the Christmas tunes and sip on a nice, warm mug of hot cocoa by the fireplace. You’ll have that shopping done in no time!

MY FAVORITES

[easyazon_link identifier=”B001J6NXO4″ locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]Toms:[/easyazon_link] I don’t leave on any trip without a pair of Toms. These are seriously the comfiest and easiest shoes for travel! No more worrying about laces while going through security. Plus, add some inserts like these and you will never have sore feet from all that walking. This would be the perfect gift for that world traveler in the family.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B074K5JGR5″ locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]Blanket Scarf:[/easyazon_link] Not only does this scarf help you travel in style, but it also doubles as a great blanket on a 12-hour flight. What’s not to like?

[easyazon_link identifier=”B01LZK4QRU” locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]Beats:[/easyazon_link]  I love my pair of Beats. They are lifesavers for watching movies or listening to music on a long flight. They may not be completely noise-cancelling, but they are so much better than messing with a tangled pair of earbuds that don’t stay in most of the time.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B00H7KJTCG” locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]The Secret Life of Walter Mitty:[/easyazon_link] Anyone who loves to travel will appreciate this film. This was actually the movie that inspired Jacob and I to start traveling the world. Even though we’ve both seen it so many times, it is still one of our favorites!

[easyazon_link identifier=”B00O8PNW6M” locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]Scratch Off Map:[/easyazon_link] Jacob and I received a scratch off map for Christmas last year, and we’ve had so much fun scratching off all of the countries and states we’ve visited. It’s a unique way to keep track of all of the places you’ve visited.

We all know that Christmas shopping can be overwhelming, but these holiday gift guides should help make the job just a little bit easier.

MY FAVORITES

[easyazon_link identifier=”B00005UP2P” locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer:[/easyazon_link] This is really an appliance no kitchen should go without. I use my mixer for everything. Bread, pizza dough, cookies, candy, you name it. There’s no baking job this appliance can’t handle!

[easyazon_link identifier=”B00008T960″ locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]Silpat Mat:[/easyazon_link] Every baker will appreciate a silpat. Silpat mats can do anything that parchment paper can, but they can be used over and over again.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B004RB4SII” locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]Mini Bundt Pan:[/easyazon_link] I just think these are adorable. I mean, what’s not to like about mini bundt cakes?

[easyazon_link identifier=”B01LBNU4EQ” locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]Bronze Mugs:[/easyazon_link] These mugs are beautiful AND effective at keeping drinks hot or cold.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B000GIGZXM” locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]BlendTec:[/easyazon_link] I personally think these are one of the best blenders on the market. Anyone who loves a good smoothie, homemade ice cream or fresh almond butter needs to have a Blendtec in their kitchen.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B014H2OZAC” locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]Phillips Hue Smart Light: [/easyazon_link] One of the first things Jacob and I purchased when we moved into our new home was a set of Phillips Hue Smart Lights. These Smart Lights can be controlled right from your smart phone, a must-have in any smart home.

Apple TV: I really can’t say enough good things about the Apple TV. It is so easy to use, and it can be controlled from your iPhone. If you already have other Apple products in your home, you need to add the Apple TV to your collection.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B01MCVXMSO” locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]Apple Watch:[/easyazon_link] I was a little hesitant about getting an Apple Watch at first, but my watch has been the perfect complement to my iPhone. Not only does this watch track my exercise (and it encourages me to walk more), but it alerts me of incoming texts or phone calls, and I can control my music right from my wrist. It really is the perfect gift for anyone!

[easyazon_link identifier=”B0168IXO3M” locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]August Smart Lock:[/easyazon_link] Do you ever find yourself all cozy in bed only to realize you forgot to lock the front door? I hate that feeling. But the August Lock makes it easy to lock your door from anywhere with the help of your smartphone. The August Lock is the perfect addition to any smart home, and tech fans are sure to love it!
