Happy Thanksgiving and our 2018 Holiday Gift Guides

Today, we’re sharing our thoughts on a Happy Thanksgiving and our 2018 Holiday Gift Guides! These holiday gift guides are filled with 64 ideas to make shopping for your favorite people quick and easy this holiday season.

If you’re in the US and celebrating all things Thanksgiving today, we hope your day has been filled with lots of love and laughter and special memories too.


Celebrating Thanksgiving

We’re currently snuggled up reading books and watching Christmas movies in our jammers after having spent the entire day resting and relaxing.

As you guys know, I’m pretty awful in the kitchen. So, taking on Thanksgiving dinner by myself after S’s accident felt like a monumental task. While everything didn’t turn out exactly like I had planned, I didn’t burn anything too bad and there are plenty of leftovers for tomorrow.

Thanksgiving night has always been one of my favorite nights of the year especially when we’re back home with our big farm family. We all meet up at the only pizza place in town and then head over to my aunt’s house (the one that starts prepping for Christmas on Labor Day) for dessert, mocha and Black Friday deal prep!

Over the years my aunt has perfected her homemade mocha recipe, which to this day, she still serves in the tiniest cups, you’ve ever seen ? while my other aunts and cousins have scouted out the best deals and coupon codes.

It’s so much fun!


Prepping for Black Friday 

Since Thanksgiving night is a big night for gift planning in our family, we thought it might be in your family too. With this in mind, we’re sharing our 2018 holiday gift guides with you tonight to help make Black Friday prep a little easier and to also give you a few ideas for Cyber Monday as well.

These comprehensive guides cover ideas for your Mom, sisters, family, friends, coworkers, teachers, and neighbors. They’re at all different price points too.

The last guide was put together by my bestie S, who runs the website and helps with a lot of projects behind the scenes. Because of this, she put together a list of tools we use almost daily whether we’re working with private pay clients or knocking out projects around the house.
