Not sure how or when this started, but I LOVE gift giving. Surprisingly, it’s not my love language and my husband doesn’t care too much about gifts. But it gives me such pleasure to plan out and find items that fit each individual just right! My favorite people to gift are my best friend, husband, and mom… probably because I know them best. A gift is more than just a present on a special holiday, but it’s a reflection of your thoughts and love towards that person.
Funny I say that because I give my husband a lot of gag gifts haha. Anyways, moving forward, I put together a list of items and some coupons codes to help you get the best deals this holiday season because who doesn’t like saving money! I’ve also included a list of my go-to websites or email subscriptions I use to find great deals on everything and anything! Enjoy!
GIFTS FOR MEN
I’ve talked about these before, but I’m telling you, when I say these things are so manly but utterly unique, I mean it! Loved every purchase from here for every man in my life! (up to 20% off right now)
My dad introduced this website to me and I cry laugh every time I visit. Do you have a sarcastic relative… get him one of these calendars!
GAME DAY TICKETS / JERSEY
Ok, kind of the obvious for a dude but I swear one of the best gifts I’ve given were Nascar tickets to my dad almost a year in advance. Worth the wait & worth every penny.
FAUX LEATHER GYM BAG – ASOS
Showing up in a suit and tie to work with your neon green nike gym bag is not the best look. Upgrade his gym bag.
EXCLUSIVE SHOES – STOCK X
I’m not an exclusive sneaker fan but when Matthew told me he wanted some shoes that were sold out everywhere I stumbled upon this website. Found the shoes for the price of what they dropped in stores… no more overpaying for shoes from those crazies that wait in line for 10 hours.
Not just for the wine connoisseurs, this subscription includes wines from all around the US or the world and includes little “about me” for each wine bottle you receive so you can learn to be the wine-spert yourself! (wine.com no longer does subscriptions so I linked a list of different ones)
GAINZ BOX SUBSCRIPTION
My mom works at a gym and I got this for her, however, based on the items received, I think it would be great for men. It’s great for the gym rat or someone that’s just starting back up on the workout train. (10% off first box)
COLOGNE BAG – SEPHORA
I’ve purchased so many of these because it’s such a steal! Each bag contains a ton of sample size colognes and whichever one they like best, they can redeem for a full size bottle, for free! The samples lasted Matthew nearly a year btw.
CLASSIC BOXING BELL – UNCOMMON GOODS
Got a man with a man cave? This would be such a pretty but also pretty cool edition to the cave. Also, everything on this website is amazing.
Sorry babe, but this is under the tree already… your towel method is not working and it’s time for a change. For all men with beards.
For the boot guy! Plus you can save right now with code GIFTS15
I saw this and thought of five different guys that would love this! Men and their drinks.
Literally every man wants a man cave and if he says he doesn’t, he’s lying. This would be a great edition for a small man cave that’s also easy on the eyes.
GIFTS FOR WOMEN
CALENDAR EASEL – ARTIFACT UPRISING
Customized these for grandma & grandpa last year and they came out beautifully! Love the minimal easel that comes with this one.
CLOUD DIGITAL FRAME – AMAZON
Not just your ordinary digital frame, I send the pictures of Pia to my mom’s frame via an app on my phone and she comes home to a surprise of new photos. She LOVES it!
PHOTO BOOK – ARTIFACT UPRISING
No comparison on these photo books. Not only are they printed and organized for you so beautifully, but a collection of them look amazing on your shelves!
CUSTOM NAME NECKLACE – BY CHARI
Ok, this is on my SUPER want list. How adorable are the letter necklaces? I’d love a PIA one.. hint hint ?
ADIDAS GEAR – URBAN OUTFITTERS
Cute athleisure is always a win for the ladies. Urban is doing buy one get one 50% off OR at ASOS everything is 25% off with code EPIC25 and they have a whole lot of cute Adidas gear.
ACRYLIC CALENDAR – PB TEEN
Loving this home decor piece incorporating organization! I do plan on DIY-ing this later but in the meantime… we love this one.
FABFITFUN SUBSCRIPTION BOX
Definitely for the girly girl!
PERFUME SUBSCRIPTION – SCENT BIRD
Monthly (rather large) samples of perfume or cologne. Great for the scent addict.
PAJAMAS – PRETTY LITTLE THING
Perfect combination of sexy and cute pajamas! Code CYBER50 for 50% off!
I’ve been seeing these all over Instagram and recently got these ones! And they are now cheaper than when I bought them -___- so enjoy.
JEWELRY – KATE SPADE
Kate Spade’s sale is ridiculous right now! Like 75% off everything ridiculous! Jewelry for all the girls!
COURTNEY CARDIGAN – URBAN OUTFITTERS
I’ve been eyeing this cardigan for awhile now…. haven’t purchased yet because I have literally every color in my cart. Perfect for a everyday cardigan and I can picture every girl wearing this.
GIFTS FOR COUPLES
GAME OF PHONES – UNCOMMON GOODS
There are SO many fun games over at Uncommon Goods! This one I definitely want to try for game night.
PAN STIRRER – UNCOMMON GOODS
Ok, if there ever were a kitchen item made specifically for parents, this one would be it! How many times are you interrupted while cooking by your babies??? I’ve scrubbed so many pans with burnt things on the bottom of it. So. Many. Pans.
FLIP RACK – UNCOMMON GOODS
Definitely depends on the decor style of their home, but I thought this was clever and cool!
PERSONALIZED FOUR ACROSS GAME – UNCOMMON GOODS
This is adorable and I know of one couple in particular that would LOVE this!
