The 2022 Holiday Gift Guide for Families!


King of Christmas will help you to create a winter wonderland for family memories! They have everything that you need for Christmas decor - full size trees, mini trees, wreaths, garlands, and accessories. We recommend ordering early for trees and accessories that help you to enjoy happy Christmas memories with your family. 

Personally, our children have a large age gap. For our older son, we had the same Christmas tree for most of his childhood.  The tree was in many of our favorite Christmas photos and videos.  The tree was well loved, but it was time for a new tree.  While browsing the King of Christmas website, I fell in love with the King Flock Collection 4-Piece Set with Warm LED Lights. I instantly knew that the set was perfect for my family since it included two small trees to put next to the fireplace - one for each of my children! I also love the flocked garland and wreath that look beautiful above the trees.  These trees will be with us for many happy years to come! We hope that you will visit King of Christmas to find your perfect holiday decor. Their website is easy to browse and they convenient ship everything to your doorstep.  We recommend ordering early to make sure that you have your perfect Christmas tree in time for the holidays!

Hanna Andersson's Star Wars Galactic Empire Long John Pajamas may be the coziest matching holiday pajamas in the galaxy! We love that Hanna Andersson's iconic pajamas now feature our favorite Star Wars characters for the holiday season! These super soft rib knit crafter long john tops and pants will keep your family members floating in seamless-feeling comfort.  These pajamas feature exclusive new artwork from the Dark Side featuring Darth Vader.  We recommend ordering your matching pajamas early in case these sell out quickly!

Bake Me a Wish offers perfection when it comes to holiday baked goods. If you watch Shark Tank, Robert Herjavec is a successful investor with high expectations. It was fun to learn that he loves Bake Me a Wish so much that he used this company for holiday gifting! He is a wealthy celebrity who seems to have it all, so I enjoyed learning that some of the lucky people on his holiday list have received Bake Me a Wish gifts from him in the past. It's fun to send people gifts from the same brands that celebrities send to their friends! Personally, we love gifts from Bake Me a Wish because they are perfectionists! Their special treats are nice for families to enjoy together. Bake Me a Wish uses amazing recipes and premium ingredients to make their crave-worthy baked goods. They neatly package each item so that your recipient feels special when they open it. For instance, all of their items are fantastic, but the 12pc JUMBO Brownies is my personal favorite. They perfected the recipes for several different types of brownies so that every family member is sure to find one of their favorites such as rich and decadent Velvet Ganache Chocolate, Cheesecake, Iced Lemon Blondie and Raspberry Crumb!

Of course, as a mom, I have to feature the Gingerbread Snack Box that kids love! My own children adored the sweet little gingerbread house box and festive contents that included four decadent gourmet brownies (2 x cookies and cream and 2 x marble cheesecake), six refreshing chocolate peppermints and 10 chocolate Santas. I loved that they had multiples of items for families that have multiple children. Bake Me a Wish is the perfect company to visit for holiday gifts that are sure to please everyone! On a personal note, I encourage you to order early to make sure that they don't sell out of your favorite items.  Check out their holiday offerings here.

Cheese Brothers offers the best cheeses for your holiday parties, charcuterie boards, and gifts. The cheese recipes that they use keep it simple with milk, salt, and natural cultures. None of their cheeses are processed or artificial. They stay true to their roots of using top quality ingredients and classic family recipes that are natural and simple. Their high quality ingredients and techniques come through when you taste their products!  For instance, we tried "The Best Gifts are Cheesy" set and their Parmesan. The cheeses, salami, and cherry lavendar jam were incredible! We also love that this gift supports a small business that truly cares about giving meticulous attention to detail for every aspect of their business. The taste of their products is evident of their quest for crave-worthy products.
