The Complete 2022 Holiday Gift Guide


It took me a minute after Halloween ended to switch gears for Christmas but now that I have, I’m amped and ready for the most magical time of year! Are you?

Compiling and curating these gift guides is something I look forward to each year and I’m so happy to share my finds with you year in and year out. I truly enjoy the act of gift giving and pride myself on thoughtfully selecting items our each of our friends and family members. I know how absolutely overwhelming it can be to shop for everyone on your list so I hope that these gift guides serve as inspiration for the special people in your life and you’re able to find something for everyone.

I’m doing things a bit differently this year in hopes to make your searching and holiday shopping experience easier in that I’m combining all my guides into one GIANT gift guide post! I will update this post as gift guides are released and it’ll be pinned to the top of my blog all season long for easy reference. Simply click on the category you’re interested in under the table of contents and you’ll be taken directly to that gift guide – how easy!

I will be using affiliate links all throughout my gift guides which just simply means that I make a tiny commission if you make a purchase while shopping through one of my guides. As always, I’m so appreciative of your friendship and support now and all throughout the year. Thank you for being here and if there’s a category you’d like me to round-up, do not hesitate to ask!
