Holiday Gift Guide {Gift Ideas for Parents, Children and Families}

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles


Christmas shopping can be a stressful and tedious task especially if you are going to be brave enough to hit the actual physical stores this season!  Luckily, my family did start our Christmas shopping in enough time this year so that we don't feel as stressed as we usually have felt in the past years.  If you're still in need of some holiday gift ideas, I put together this holiday gift guide with a variety of items that can make great gifts for anyone on your list! The best part is you can avoid going to the stores and shop from the convenience of your own home while wearing your pajamas and watching Netflix and sipping on hot tea or cocoa!

Gifts for Parents and Babies/Toddlers


Citrus Lane

Citrus Lane offers a box subscription in which a new box arrives at your door every month with products tested and recommended by other parents.  It helps saves parents time from finding these products on their own and they can rest assured that they're tested and approved by fellow moms and dads!  The products in the box (4-5 items) are specifically for the age and gender of your child (up to 5 years old) so you know they are safe and your kids will love them!  This can make a great gift to give to someone since they can receive their first box in the new year.

Visit Citrus Lane for more details.


Soap.com has your everyday essentials you need including cleaning items, hair, makeup and beauty products.  There are over 25,000 products that they offer found on their website all in one place so it makes shopping easy especially during the busy holiday shopping season!  There's lots of items that I use on there that I trust and recommend.  Their prices are comparable with in-store and online prices and you'll find that many times, they offer some of the lowest prices.   Shipping is free after you spend $49.  

Here are some products I thought many of you may enjoy for your own family or to give as gifts!  Be sure to view Soap.com's website for tons of more great gift items for everyone on your shopping list.
