Holiday Gift Guide – 2016

2016 Holiday Gift Guide

Tis the time of year where you are racking your brain, trying to make decisions about the gifts to give to your family and friends. I have partnered with some fantastic brands to offer some suggestions to make your gift giving that much easier. We have included some items from newer, smaller companies as well as offered suggestions from the companies that have been around a while longer.

2016 Holiday Gift Guide


Fleming Home Candles

Fleming’s Home Holiday Candle Line

There is always, always, always someone in your life that would love a candle. Especially, one of these hand-crafted, soy based candles. This company is based out of Rockland County, New York.

They have recently launched their Winter Scents and they are truly the scents of the season!

Choose from: No.09 Warm Apple Cider, No.10 Ginger & Bergamot, No.11 Harvest Season and No.12 Christmas Tree

Better yet, buy one of each! You can visit their website here.

The folks at Fleming’s Home have been generous enough to do a giveaway of their seasonal candles. Leave a comment in the comment section below telling us which scent you would give and who you would give it to. 1 winner will be chosen on December 2nd.

Custom Name Rings
Say It On A Ring by Hedi J Hale

As a mom, one of the hardest things for me around the Christmas season is telling people what I would like. After all, most of us spend the entire season shopping for everyone else.

These rings allow you to put the names of those you love the most in a spot where you will always be reminded of them…even if they are driving you crazy!
Be sure to place your order quickly as the last day to order to ensure Christmas delivery is December 4th.

Chiseled Face Chiseled Face Shave Soap Sampler

My husband is a bit of a shave soap snob these days. He recently discovered the Chiseled Face brand and became a super fan.

This small business based out of California is producing some pretty innovative products.

If you want to give your man the gift of the best shave of his life, place an order for Chiseled Face! You can order the products on Amazon, and many of them are Prime!

Prana Sweatshirt
prAna pants

prAna Clothing

I kind of am behind on the times when it comes to certain things.

prAna is one of them.

I recently got my hands on their hemp pants, not only are the pants great for our planet because of the eco-friendly nature, but they are the most comfortable things that I have ever worn.

The gray hoodie is made from organic cotton and is so incredibly soft, I may have to get two so I am never without a clean one!

There is no denying the incredible quality of these products, both at first glance and the first time that I wore them!

World's Smallest

World's Smallest

World’s Smallest

The people behind the World’s Smallest, took some of our favorite iconic toys and made them small! These toys are the perfect size for stockings, in fact, that is exactly where these are going. Pictured left to right: Fisher Price Chatter Telephone, Sock Monkey, Perplexus (you know that ball maze game?) and Army Men. You can grab the entire collection on Amazon, here.

Criss Cross Crash

Criss Criss Crash by Hot Wheels

My youngest has had his eye on this set by Hot Wheels since he first heard about it. In recent years, Hot Wheels has been producing tracks that interlock and can be used together to make for lack of a better description a giant car track.

Criss Cross Crash is a motorized playset (so yes, you will need to stock up on batteries) that is in high demand this season. Trust us, your Hot Wheel loving kiddo will thank you (or Santa) for this purchase!

You can snag one from Amazon, here.

crayola-emoji-maker Crayola Emoji Maker

Emoji’s have taken over haven’t they?

Let your little crafter get creative with the newest thing from Crayola, the Emoji maker! 

This art set is sure to keep your kiddos occupied while creating with their very own emojis!


A portion of these products have been provided to us at no charge for the purpose of inclusion in the guide. There are also affliliate links that pay us a very small percentage of purchases that you may make. We have included these items because we truly like them and hope that you and your family will too!

    My daughter is a hoodie addict! I think I may have to order mother and daughter hoodies. Especially if they’re as soft as you say!

    I would pick the No.12 Christmas Tree scent. I would give this to my stepmom. She doesn’t put up a tree, so it would be kind of neat to have a candle burning that smelled like one.
