To be honest, gift guides have stressed me out a little this season. I thought I was all on top of everything and was going to get them all done before Thanksgiving — I did a lot of my picks in November in preparation — but then I got so busy with other projects and collaborations and I just didn’t have time to put them together and publish them earlier.
Designing these roundups to look aesthetically pleasing, linking them, and writing about each gift takes hours, and sourcing them takes even longer. Just to give you an idea (and a little behind the scenes info) I’d say this gift guide alone took me at least 6 hours from sourcing the products to putting the final edits on the post. Hence why my gift guides are coming out on the late side this year. It’s ok, I decided not to stress myself out over it or lose sleep because in the long run my health is more important.
However, I must say, I have found some AMAZING gift ideas this season. I really try hard to find things that are different than what you see out there on every other website.
This year I asked you all what types of gift guides you wanted and someone said an All Amazon Gift Guide. I did an Amazon Cyber Monday post with some awesome items so make sure to check it out, but this gift guide covers almost everyone and on every budget. And I’m sure you’ll want a few things for yourself too.
I’ve been a Prime member for years now, and I know it works in my favor as I NEVER pay for shipping and I probably order at least one or two things off Amazon each week. I order things like toilet paper and paper towels in bulk, it’s cheaper, it arrives on my door, and I don’t have to go to the store!
Because all of these gifts are on Amazon, don’t quote me on these prices as you know they change sometimes, so this is just what the prices were when I linked to them!
