I’ve been making many lists and checking them twice, trying to organize my shopping for my people! I would say that I am actually about 75% done with my Christmas shopping, and it’s not even December yet. Yay me!!  I enjoy going out on a few different occasions to shop in stores and listen to the carols and see all the beautiful, festive, seasonal decorations. However, if I’m being honest, I really love sitting in my jammies with the fire going and sipping my coffee out of a Christmas mug and watching the ‘Today Show’ (if it’s the morning) or sipping a glass of wine and watching a Christmas movie (if it’s the evening) and ordering away on my laptop!

I follow a lot of bloggers that have been sharing their gift picks online and I can say that I’ve actually gotten a lot of great ideas!  Soooo, I figured I’d share some of my gift picks with you in the hopes that it may help you, too!

Here are a couple of ideas I have in mind for my husband:


L.L. Bean Wicked Good Scuffs


These are his favorite slippers and our dog, who rarely chews anything other than his own toys, just had them for a snack!




Ace Hardware Work Gloves


Wells Lamont Men’s Cowhide Leather Heavy Duty Work Gloves. He wears the heck out of these and I get him a new pair every year!



L.L. Bean Rangeley Paddling Shorts

He paddleboards most mornings in the summer and these are quick-drying, have SPF and a waterproof cellphone pocket!



For the teen/young adult son:


Yeti Cooler


L.L. Bean Sherpa-Lined Scotch Plaid Flannel

Timberland Boots


For the teen/young-adult daughter:


IT cosmetics ‘It’s your top 5’ collection
