Holiday Gift Guide 2017

Holiday Gift Guide 2017

I think about the Holidays year round! We have a very diverse family and there are different Holidays celebrated throughout the year. Christmas, Hanukkah, Eid and many more. The Winter Holidays are my favorite because I love giving gifts. However, I would rather give a few quality gifts instead of a pile of things that won’t get used or will be donated in a few weeks after Christmas is over. Take a look at some of the great items I’ve found this year! This is a sponsored post & it contains affiliate links. 

Holiday Gift Guide 2017


RoosterFin Games for Families

Holidays in my family mean board games. I love seeing my kids sit down with their cousins to play games! I’m very excited to take along these family-based board games at our next meet-up so they can have fun with some new challenges. One of my favorite things about them is the lack of a traditional cardboard board! We’ve had so many crack and deteriorate that these easy to care for games are a welcome addition to our collection! See my RoosterFin Games Review for full details and a closer look at these games.

Handmade Eco-friendly Gifts

One of my favorite ways to get friends and family hooked on Eco-friendly products I love is to gift them! Reusable mason jars make the perfect Eco-friendly container and when filled with great products, they last well after the Holidays are over. Molly’s Suds Jars are a great way for others to try this Eco-friendly laundry detergent in a really fun and exciting way! See my tutorial here.

GEOSMART Magnetic Toys

I have been waiting all year for new releases from GEOSMART! My sons can play with these for hours. Sometimes they build the projects the pieces are designed for, other times they make up their own creations. Either way, I’m thrilled that they love these “toys” and can enrich their minds and imaginations in a really great way. Read my Moon Lander and U.F.O. Review for details.

My First Lab Duo Scope Starter Kit

A microscope is a great gift for the budding scientist. My sons are interested in cells, plants, bugs, animals and science in general. They love having an up close view of organic and inorganic items and learning in a big way. Take a look at my full Duo Scope Starter Kit Review to see what we thought of this scope.

Starpath dolls

As a Mom to 4 boys, it’s not often that I get to hold a doll! Luckily, this year my Nieces wanted 18″ dolls! What’s special about starpath dolls? These dolls come in a great assortment of characters, have ethnically diverse outfits available and can have customized books with your child’s name in them! In addition, their pricing compares to American Girl dolls is very reasonable and they have nice quality. See my full Starpath dolls review for all the details about this beauty.

Glossybox is one of my favorite monthly subscriptions. They send out a great beauty box for under $20 shipped full of 3-4 full size and several sample size products. In addition, you can get a 3-month subscription for under $60 and have a gift that automatically sends each month! Boxes are full of high-quality surprises and come beautifully packaged.

You can pre-order the fabfitfun Winter box and simply put a bow on it for gift-giving! This makes shopping for my fashionable sister-in-law super easy and I hand her this beautiful gift that was easy for me to order!

Amazon Gift Card

One of my favorite gifts to receive is an Amazon gift card. I have Prime and can order things with free 2-day shipping! In fact, we order from Amazon often and it saves me trips to the store with 4 active boys. If you’re unsure what to get, you can never go wrong with an Amazon gift card! They have everything! In addition to physical goods, they have videos and even 2-hour delivery in some areas. Shop Amazon gift cards here.


Our furry friends deserve to be pampered for the Holidays too! I love our latest addition for our well loved cat! This SONGMICS tree is at an amazing price, comes shipped to your home and is easy to assemble. Did I say great price?! It’s very sturdy and in my SONGMICS Cat Tree review you can see this in detail plus find the company’s huge selection of affordable, awesome cat trees!

WHISBEAR The Humming Bear

This would make a great gift for a new or expecting Mom! I recently learned about this bear and would have loved to have it when they were colicky newborns! WHISBEAR makes a soft white noise sound. It’s either activated by pressing a button or by the cry sensor. In addition, it’s adorable! There are great details to stimulate baby’s visual and touch senses, and the white noise is a sure crowd pleaser. Read my WHISBEAR Review here.

doTerra Holiday Gifts

I started using doTerra essential oils and love them! I love diffusing essential oils with therapeutic benefits over candles that my kids can knock over, and are known to produce toxins. In addition, I love using the oils on our skin and the past tense roller on my temples when I have a killer headache. This year doTerra has outdone themselves with Holiday goodies! Shop my doTerra shop to see the amazing selection. Available Holiday stock is listed under special offers. I bought 2 touch clutches and wish I purchased more!

*I am still receiving Holiday Gift Guide items and this will be updated as I add them! Thank you for stopping by!
