Thoughtful Holiday Gifts That Are Sure to Be Loved


I love gift giving.  Well, let me clarify … I love thoughtful gift giving which can make the process of selecting gifts pretty challenging, especially with people I’ve known my whole life.  I also love online shopping and much prefer when the ordering process involves having gifts show up on my doorstep!  

So, in the spirit of sharing, I’m here to offer thoughtful holiday gift ideas (you can order online!) for the loved ones on your list. 


For MomsA Customized Portrait

Last year I got my mom the most amazing gift, which I’m sharing because it was a chart topper!  I got her a customized portrait from Toast the Good Things.  I sent the designer some family photos and she created a gorgeous piece of art that will be cherished for  a lifetime.

For Girlfriends, Co-workers + Friends:  Local Arizona Shirts

Arizona shirts are a personal fave of this grey tee loving gal. I love High Jink Shirts and they have an entire series of Arizona tees.  I own several of them and they would make a perfect gift for a local (or someone born in AZ)! 

For Relatives: A Photo Calendar

This is my family’s favorite gift every year.  I make mine at Walgreens (mostly because they can have it done in an hour), but there are so many great online retailers to use too.  I choose a photo of my girls from each month of the year, and then personalize the calendar based on the recipient.  The hardest part is finding the best photos; I spend a good amount of time on the photo selection for each person. But, if you were less picky about this, it would save some time and would be even easier!  

Gifts for Moms (aka gifts I hope I receive): Workout Gear

The Fitbit!  Yes, I’m late to the party, but I’ve had a heart rate monitor from Polar for about 10 years.  Now, I’d like to know my steps and be able to track all the extra bonus data that Fitbit offers!   

More workout pants!  Everyone loves their Lululemon pants, but I have to tell you, Nike are my faves.  They have the best patterns and are super contouring (which is my nice word for … they suck it all in)!

I hope this helps you find some thoughtful holiday gifts for everyone on your list this year!  What are your favorite gifts to give?
