Over the past year we have been lucky enough to come across some AMAZING items in our travels. Between blog conferences, vacations, and not being scared to ask strangers about something cool that we saw them with we have been able to put together a kick-a holiday gift guide this year. We hope that you are able to find at least one item for someone on your list!

Due to the number of items we have split the guide up into three different sections – kids, 18+, and tech. You can check out our kid’s picks here and our tech picks here. Enjoy!

2016 Holiday Gift Guide


Gifts for 18+ (Friends, Neighbors, Significant Other, Co-Worker, Adult Children, etc)



Spanx leggings are my newest OBSESSION. I mean some on! Each pair is made with the magic of Spanx built in and can take you from here…to there. I recently got my first pair about 6 weeks ago and it has quickly become my new go-to bottoms whether I am taking the kids to school, headed to the gym, or going on a long day of shopping with the girls. Dress them up or down – you can’t go wrong. Perfect for a stocking stuffer!



With the ability to customize these crates, you can create the perfect gift for everyone. Festive Holiday Crates for holding gifts, Personalized Planter Crates for the gardeners, Personalized Toy Boxes for the little ones, even crates for your beloved pets – the possibilities are endless. These apple crates are made from high quality, sustainably harvested Forest Stewardship Council certified pine treated for indoor and outdoor use. Each crate is printed, hand assembled and painted. Perfect for a neighbor, co-worker or the in-laws!

Misfit Ray

mis9004_1Misfit Ray – Fitness + Sleep Tracker with Black Sport Band (Stainless Steel) Ray’s distinct deconstructed and modular design makes it Misfit’s most versatile activity tracker yet. This highly customizable cylindrical aluminum body is able to be worn with Misfit-branded or custom accessories on the wrist or as a necklace. Ray effortlessly complements watches, bracelets, and fine jewelry. Its elemental, interchangeable design makes it easy to personalize. I love wearing mine as a necklace because it looks so good! No longer do fitness trackers need to be big, bulky, and ugly!

Panasonic Lumix FZ300


Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ300K 12.1 Megapixel, 1/2.3-inch Sensor, 4K Video, Splash & Dustproof Body, Leica DC Lens 24X F2.8 Zoom (Black) Lumix ’s outstanding lens performance with full range F2.8 aperture makes it possible to clearly capture moving subjects at a high shutter speed even at a great distance — something that has not been achieved by any digital compact camera. The splash and dust proof capability make the LUMIX FZ300 the all-around great camera for sports, outdoor and events.
  • Capture moments with 4K imaging performance in both video photo
  • 24X (25-600mm) full-range F2.8 aperture Leica Lens

Christmas Trivia Family Party Game


(Set) Christmas Trivia & Holiday Season Scavenger Hunt Card Games – Ages 8+ is the perfect party game! Test your knowledge on carols, holiday movies, stocking stuffers, the North Pole and more. Perfect for a family, friend, or neighborhood get together. It has hard enough questions to keep adults entertained but some easy ones to keep tweens and teens interested in a group function (and not off hiding on scrolling on their phone).

I know I will be using the Misfit Ray this next year to count my steps and keep an eye on me while I sleep. I already ordered some more amazing leggings from Spanx for my gym workouts. And I am looking forward to a fast and fun game of Christmas trivia with my extended family on Christmas Eve. What item are you loving from the list?
