2018 Favorite Things Holiday Gift Guide

For Fun

I’m one that will never turn down a kitchen towel, so these funny towels fit right into that category.  This “Made from Scratch” towel from BlueQ is perfect for someone who is a good cook, or who has a cat.  Or both.

Or this “Go Away” version for you introverts out there.

This towel is perfect for the cook in your family who is annoyed with you when you’re in her kitchen:

Or this one for your girlfriend who loses her mind when an old school song comes on at a party, and she’s had a few cocktails.  (Not that I’d know anything about that).

There are a lot more options out there (some funny ones that I appreciate, but others may not appreciate the language) – so feel free to browse more of them here.

These wet wipes are perfect for your friend with OCD-tendencies.  A great stocking stuffer.

Cool and Practical

A cool iPhone case is never a bad idea.  Look at it as an accessory.

Bose has created an even better Bluetooth speaker.  Not only is it portable, with great sound, this one is waterproof.  I use my Bose speaker all the time, and still love it.  Amazing sound out of such a little speaker, and it’s a great gift for just about anyone on your list.

I’m thinking that anyone who travels these days could use this Cable Travel Organizer.  Beats the heck out of my Ziploc bag that usually accompanies me on trips currently.  And certainly more stylish.

I have wireless headphones on my list this year, and I have been doing some research trying to find ones that will fit the bill without breaking the bank.  These Bluetooth headphones look promising, and I love that they have a magnet feature so that they clip together nicely.

For a Touch of Beauty

One of my best friends shared this Little Barn Apothecary body oil as one of her favorite things.  She uses it in her bath, or just as she’s coming out of the shower, and said that it leaves her “baby smooth.”  She loves the scent too – refreshing, like a spring or summer day.  A nice distraction when you’re wishing for warmer weather in the middle of winter!

As another item in the beauty department, another girlfriend shared the Dove Body Polish, saying that she loves how fine this scrub is, and loves the scent.

Because You Can’t Forget Food

You can’t have a gift guide list without something food-related, right?  I had a sample of one of these McCrea’s Caramels, and they are so delicious.  I think you might even like them, even if you don’t like caramels.  I tried the sea salt caramels, but I’m guessing that any flavor would be delicious if this one is an indication.  Great as a hostess gift!

Don’t forget to check out the other blogger gift guides linked up below!  I hope this helps with a few gifts for people on your holiday list. 🙂
