It’s mid-October which means that all of our minds are focused on what we should be for Halloween? Except for me, because Mack and I usually just stay home and hope to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters. We always overbuy candy and tend to get just a handful of eager kids. The forces us to give the last few that come by an entire bag of candy (sorry parents!) because if we don’t, we will just eat it all. Maybe this year will be different in our new home! We will wait to see!
However, it’s mid-October which also means the holidays are seriously right around the corner. There’s no better time than the present to face that reality and start making your gift list for family and friends. I thought I would get a jump start myself so I pulled some great options for her and him. I want to share in hopes this would get your wheels turning on your pre-holiday gift guide. I touched on the fact that I prefer gifts that I use almost daily over anything else in my birthday wish list. I applied the same idea when creating this list of gifts to potentially give and brainstormed items for her and him that I presume most of us use daily. Useful gifts are the best gifts! Who doesn’t love a great watch, good candle, notebook and tweezers…. I MEAN tweezers are life for us girls, right?! Then for the men in our lives, I recommend a boyfriend watch (so you can steal it on occasion to wear), some trusty grooming products (can’t go wrong with shampoo and shaving kits) and a fun pair of socks (Mack LOVES fun socks haha).
So, although it may seem like it’s too soon to start thinking about holiday shopping… it will be here before we know it! Is there anything you would add to this list? What are your go-to gifts for family and friends?
Thank you so much for reading today!
