Gifts for MIL

holidays guides

I always find my in-laws are the hardest to buy for. Or my husband because I can’t his a big purchase and he buys what he wants. Lol

I always try to be a thoughtful gift giver and give something special or homemade along with a nice item. So I have rounded up a few of my top picks for MIL’s.

First up is

Barefoot dreams blanket

And another option a littler more pricey

Cozy barefoot dreams blanket

I know it’s crazy for a blanket but, it’s worth it. It’s the coziest thing you’ll ever cover up in. Promise.

UGG slippers

The comfiest cozy slippers you’ll ever own. As you can tell I like to be comfy at home and I’m sure your MIL does too.

These are practical items they can actually use.

This candle is a top selling candle on Anthropologie consistently. This is great to bundle with other items or make a gift basket with.

And hey listen, if you think they have enough blankets let them wear one outside the house. This is the coziest thing you’ll ever wear. If you live somewhere cold like my in-laws, the middle of Canada you will definitely appreciate this. Cute, comfy, and cozy.

Barefoot dreams wrap

The kitchen stuff gets me all the time. This is the cutest little chic tea set for two and so affordable. This would be a great gift for your MIL or so many others.

Last but, not least. A scarf is a perfect gift especially when it feels this good.

Comes in multiple colors and a great accessory to any outfit.

holidays guides

Okay okay okay.

Seriously y’all. How is is almost Father’s Day?!? I’m not ready. Life has been crazy over here. Lots of trips, activities, and events.

Plus my kids are out on summer break, I need those 2 days a week of school. Like seriously.

Anyways. I have rounded up a few of our ( or my favorite gifts for the husband and my dad for Father’s Day ) and a few that are on my radar. 👀

First, is one of my favorite is a nice dress shirt. bugatchi is one of my favorite brands to by! I love the patterns and sometimes even a plain color with with detailing on the cuffs.

White long sleeve

Short sleeve polo

Another one of my favorites is a good cologne. Great for Dads or spouses.

One of my favorite smells is this Cologne !

One of my favorite gifts that I had made was these Photo socks!

This is our exact pair! With photos of both kids and it says Daddy we love you! These are perfect for anyone !

Another great gift for the man in your ice is this Yeti soft cooler. It is perfect the the outdoorsman or guy who likes a few cold ones.

This is on my list this year for my husband. He is an avid coffee drinker, I might just actually borrow it too. 🤣unless he takes it to the office. Coffee warmer

Okay the last thing that’s on my list for my husband this year is this Corn hole set. We love to be outside and bbq so this will be the perfect summer addition. Plus he might like bud light.

Thanksgiving host

holidays guides

I know everyone is already going crazy with Christmas decorations, but I’m getting ready to host Thanksgiving at my house.

I might start getting the Christmas decorations out and getting things ready. Because, it is a lot of work for a short time.

But I have rounded up some of my favorite Thanksgiving things!

First this Ceramic pumpkin mine is orange but, it also comes in white!

Last year I filled mine with sweet potato casserole using Williams Sonoma sweet potato mix. I got so many compliments about the casserole, even from my grandma!

But, don’t worry they don’t stop there with helping to make your Thanksgiving super yummy and easy!

Their Truffle Mac and cheese kit is also another awesome side!

I havnt tried this next one year, but I’m sure that is is going to be amazing!

Peach sangria mix

Williams Sonoma has tons of other great options for gravy bases and seasonings. These are some of my favorite, but you can’t go wrong with anything you try there.

Next one of my favorite fun things for most big holidays are Holiday crackers !

Something I am going to be adding to my collection for our Thanksgiving desert is this cute Cake stand from target. This is super cute and can actually be used all year long, but the wood goes great with some fall decorations!

I hope you get to try some of my favorite items for Thanksgiving! If you do please let me know what you think! I would love to hear some of your favorite Thanksgiving things!
