Holiday Gift Guide For The In-Laws

I am coming at you with another gift guide today! Some people are easier to shop for than others, and I think finding something for the in-laws can always be challenging! I tried to include a lot of items in my holiday gift guide for the in-laws that are great for entertaining, or can play off on their favorite hobby. I rounded up some of my top picks below. As always, thank you for reading!

Holiday Gift Guide For the In-Laws

Charcuterie Set // Glass Teapot // Grilling Set // Gardening Set // Himalayan Salt Block // Ancestry Kit // Back Massager // Wine Refrigerator // Electric Grill // Oil Infuser // Breakfast Sandwich Maker // Monogrammed Glasses // Ring Doorbell // Oversized Dice Yard Game

Charcuterie Board

How fun is this cheese serving board!? I love that it has spaces separated out to more easily organize what you are serving, and different knives for different types of cheese/spreads.

Monogrammed Glasses

Everyone can use drinking glasses, and I love that these are monogrammed. Is it bad I am thinking of getting these for myself? 😉

Yard Game

This one depends on your family, but my in-laws LOVE yard games. Nothing brings everyone together more than a weekend day spent outside with a yard game and a drink! I thought these oversized dice look so fun, and it gives you something to look forward to after winter!

Breakfast Sandwich Maker

Maybe I am crazy, but I feel like kitchen gadgets always make a great gift. They are one of those fun items to have that people don’t typically splurge on for themselves. And who doesn’t love a good breakfast sandwich!?

Grilling Kit

Men love to grill, right!? Not only does this kit have all of the essentials for grilling, but it also comes in a sleek case! In our house these items tend to be scattered all over the place, so a kit like this would be a great gift!

Gardening Kit

Another great item for someone who has a hobby of gardening. This is such a thoughtful gift that caters to their interests!

Neck Massager

Trust me when I saw this-NO ONE will ever be sad to receive a neck or back massager! This one is heated and looks so nice. Perfect for the father in law! 😉

Salt Block

I came across this gift while creating this list, and thought it was such a good item and so unique! We love having salt lamps in our home, and I love that this block can be used when preparing food, or for serving. Great for adding that flavor while also looking so fun!

Oil Infuser

This item is one I want for myself! I always love going out to eat and having oils that are infused with herbs, they smell (and taste) amazing. I think this is such a fun item to have, and it is so so affordable, too!

Glass Teapot

How pretty is this teapot!? I think this would look lovely left out on the stove-top. I especially love the steeping mechanism in the middle. Perfect for any tea drinker!

Wine Refrigerator

Another item I think I may need for myself 😉 This wine refrigerator is more of a splurge, but if you know a wine lover, it is well worth it. I always struggle with storing my bottles of wine in the refrigerator; most of them are too tall with the cork!

How fun is this gift!? Especially when you have married into a family, it is so thoughtful to show an interest in your spouse’s family history. I am always blown away by what can be uncovered by DNA kits-I have known people personally who learned SO much about their background!

Electric Grill

This is another gift for the grill master of the family. Electric grills are great, and this one is clean and simple.

Ring Doorbell

I have yet to meet someone who has a RING doorbell and doesn’t love it. This doorbell allows you to see who is at the door, get notifications on your phone, and more. Another one of the ‘investment’ items on this list, but so thoughtful and great for making your loved ones feel safe.

I hope this list inspired you and gave you some new ideas for gifts to give to your in-laws. Tell me-what are your favorite gifts for extended family members?

Father’s Day Gift Ideas (that ship Prime!)

In true ‘mom’ fashion, I am scouring the internet with less than a week until father’s day in search of the perfect gift. We have never been huge gift givers in this house. We usually just buy what we want and then tell the other about it as a warning before looking at the credit card bill 😉 BUT, as our boys get older, they are truly beginning to understand Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, and it is so special to receive from them, and also help them give to make others feel special. While I am over here racking my brain for some sweet things the boys can do for Mike next weekend, I also rounded up some good Father’s Day gift ideas that ship fast. Some of these are even shipping with one day delivery!

Father’s Day Gift Ideas (that ship Prime!)

prime gifts for men at various price points

Black Tee // Charging Station // Neck Massager // Best Dad Ever Mug // Yeti Mug // Smoker-Grill // Pasta Maker // Wireless Earphones // Grillmaster Set

Best Dad Ever Tee

I don’t really think this one needs an explanation. Men wear t-shirts, and most guys have no problem letting people know they are a great dad 😉 This one comes in TONS of colors and sizes, and will work for just about anyone.

Grillmaster Set

If your husband is anything like mine, then there is nothing better than playing with the grill or smoker on a summer day. Mike and my brother in law are CONSTANTLY coming up with new recipes, and this kit has all the tools to help prep for the summer barbeque.

Grill/smoker Combo

If you are looking for more of a splurge, I have been seeing these grill/smoker combos all over. This one is a great price point, and I love that you can do so many things with it. Any man who loves grilling or smoking will LOVE this one!

Neck Massager

This, my friends, is the gift that you buy for your husband so that you can steal it for yourself 😉 I love how it wraps around the shoulders so you aren’t constantly repositioning to keep it in place. I also wouldn’t judge anyone who just decides to treat yo-self 😉

Wireless Headphones

These sleek headphones are noise cancelling, are voice activated to control Alexa, and come in multiple color options. They have 20 hours of battery life, and also have 11 levels of noise cancelling-so you can block out all noise, or let in some ambient noise!

Yeti Mug

Friends, everyone needs a Yeti mug. i like this handle option best, so perfect for weekends at the lake or keeping his coffee hot all morning at the office. You can snag it in lots of other color options, too.

Pasta Maker

Alright, I am starting to realize that if your man doesn’t like to cook, this list might be boring for you 😉 But I absolutely love this pasta maker. We are always talking about how we want to do homemade noodles, but they are kind of tricky. This machine gets your noodles to the perfect thickness and evenness, and there are a ton of attachments available to make any type of pasta you could imagine.

Charging Station

How great is this little station to hold all of his things? I always get frustrated by how things seem to be left everywhere, but then I remember-men typically don’t carry purses. This is such a sleek little spot to hold all of their items in an organized way that looks good, too!

Best Dad Ever Mug

Alright, one more best dad ever item, because why not!? You can never have too many coffee mugs, and this is a perfect one for him to keep at his desk.

Best Dad Ever Mug

Do you go big for Father’s Day, or do you keep it simple? I am all about treating dad to a splurge item, but I also know that little handwritten cards or artwork from the kiddos is what matters most. Regardless of your budget, the best part about Father’s Day is making the most important man in your (and your kiddos) life feel loved!

Remember, my Father’s Day gift ideas all ship prime, so any orders placed today or tomorrow should for sure be here in time for Sunday! For any of my past gift guides, you can head here!

Holiday Gift Guide For Your Coworkers

We have almost made it to the end of this year’s gift guides! I do have one or two more coming in early December, but for now, this is the last one before we dive into all of the sales this coming weekend! I have worked in a number of settings, and what is allowed, the environment, relationships, etc. can vary SO much. But your coworkers are the people who you spend the most time with. The reality is I see my coworkers more than my husband and kiddos most days, and they are there on the good days and the bad days! I included a variety of items in my holiday gift guide for your coworkers. Some gifts are nice and neutral, some are perfect for your office bestie, and some will help you out with that boss who you have no idea what to get! Keep reading to see my picks!

Holiday Gift Guide For Your Coworkers

Floral Phone Stand // Monogram Mug // Merlot Coffee // Festive Mug // Lotion // Soy Candle // Salt Rock Lamp // Slippers // Wooden Tumbler // Phone Stand // Bracelet // Diffuser

Again, I made sure to include a variety, because no two workplaces are the same and what flies in one space might NOT in another! Either way, I hope this last has you covered!
