Best Holiday Gift Guide 2017 header kristywicks

Hi friends!

It’s Thanksgiving week and there are just 34 days ’til Christmas! Can you believe it?! The holidays are one of my favorite times of the year for so many different reasons. It’s not only the message and meaning that I love but the time spent with family. Plus, it’s also the week that Jeff and I got married. So much love for December…

This year I’m thrilled to announce that I’m taking part in a special Holiday Gift Guide Blog Hop with some of your other favorite home bloggers… We are focusing on 4 different gift categories: Gifts For Women, Men, Kids, and Home. Shopping for gifts is one of my favorite things to do during the holidays and I had so much fun selecting each of the items. All of the following gifts below are must-buy Christmas presents for 2017. You can’t go wrong with any of them! :)

  1. Any suggestion for gift baskets? I’m in Canada but would like to send something to my family that is in Mesa so I don’t have to pay extra for shipping. Just not sure what company to use since I am not from there. Thanks!

    1. Hi Janice, I looked online and it looks like most gift basket companies don’t charge for shipping. If you are in Canada and use a US company I would think you are good to go? Hugs! xo

  2. Your choice is so unique. Thanks for sharing these beautiful collection. I would love to suggest handmade olive wood gifts here. They will give different look to your home on Christmas.
