    The best gift I’m giving this year. Well technically it’s coming from “SANTA” but it is a tepee tent for my 2.5 year old daughter. She is just gonna love it. That and I got my husband a 6 mo sub to love with food when it was on deal and it only ended up costing my $26 so it was a great deal (which he will appreciate along with the yummies)

First for my uncle who is really into grilling I got a one time BBQ Taste Trunk box (which he has no idea exists) and stuffed everything into a giant ovenmit and tired it together with a bow 🙂 My other favorite is for my aunt, she is having a really rough time, she is getting a divorce but still lives under the same roof as her husband and her son just got married and moved 3 hours away and his new wife, who she doesn’t really get a long with runs his life. I feel she must be very lonely so I got her a bunch of spa themed gifts, with a religious twist because she is a die-hard catholic, and wrapped them, all up separately each with a quote pertaining how the item can help her relax. I am so excuted!!!

    The best gift I am giving is to myself from my mom who passed away in April of this year. I had her signature from her Christmas card from 2012 made into a necklace charm that says, Love, Mom. It is her signature and it gets put on a silver rectangle to hang from a necklace. Then I will always have her with me. I won’t get it until after Christmas due to the holiday rush and time Takes to make it, but I am considering it a Christmas present!

    1. Kristin Lockwood

      Love this idea. Sorry for your loss.

  157. Anna

    Hubs and I made each other amazon wish lists, and he put these strategic board games on there as his highest priority. I told him absolutely no, as we already have way too many, but then secretly went back and bought 4 for him. That’s what he really wanted, so how can I say no? 🙂

  158. Jessica

    The best gift I got was a 6 month subscription toy subscription for one of my daughters

  169. Christina D

  170. Kristin Lockwood

    I honestly don’t know this year. We’re in a weird spot. I think the best thing we’re all getting this year is another Christmas with my Dad and it’s the first year my boys will be having Grandma & Papa spend the night on Christmas Eve. They are super excited. Gifts have gotten odd this year- but I think Hayden getting the Lalaloopsy Patch Treasure Chest pirate doll (yep, it’s a doll, he asked for it) – that look just like him, he’s going to like that a lot. Preston- KOKO has a new train and a trainer – those will make the kid happier than an elf the day after Christmas. There aren’t big gifts money wise this year. Gosh, this answer wasn’t easy, Jen. 🙁

  171. Debra

    I will be planting trees in honor of my niece, nephew and my father who just passed away 3 weeks ago.

    Don’t be mad, but I am getting my brother an OSU Buckeyes jersey. (You can’t be mad, because your team won haha 🙂 ) He lives in Texas, and misses supporting his OH team.

  176. Kyra

    We’re getting our 5 yr old a bearded dragon…i’ve never given a creature as a gift before but I am super excited bc I know he is going to be beyond thrilled!

  177. Ally

    My mother is getting an amazing clock pendant necklace from JewelMint.


    Pepper Jelly

  179. Ashley C

    We’re getting my brother in law an iGrill that connects his grill with his iphone/ipad. He’s all into apple products so I think he’ll love it


  180. Kimberlee

    well the best one I can’t say just in case someone reads this (but you already know what it is I told you the other day)

    the best that I can say…all the women (my mom, aunts, daughters,sister and nieces) are all getting designer bags stuffed with various box items…the bags are from Little Black Bag the contents from all the boxes over the last 5 months (this is why I have done very little trading since July I had to stock up) I hope they love them as much as I have enjoyed putting them togather (2 0f the younger ones are getting Nila Anthony backpacks instead of purses)

    Each year I pick a theme and personalize it each year for the people I give to. Like, one year it was cheese and wine; one year jewelry and wallets, one year hand made bath and body, this year is cozy, so everyone is getting stuff to keep warm, soft pj’s, scarfs, cocco and coffee, stuff like that; but my new nefew is getting sock monkey and a craft I made of old blocks that spell his name in a shelf made of old rulers( my sis is a math teacher) so that is different, but hey no one will have anything like it!

    I don’t do family gifts anymore. Not to sound mean but the kids in my family are really bratty so I choose not to participate in the gift giving. For the past few years my mom and I have been doing Operation Christmas Child where we make tons of boxes for children around the world. Thinking of the kids that will get excited over the most tiny thing like a toothbrush or some new pencils brings tears to my eyes. We jam pack boxes full of things from school supplies, toiletries, clothes and some extra fun stuff. It honestly brings so much joy to my life and helps me experience the true meaning of Christmas. I love sharing this tradition with my mom because it is something we bond over. I can’t wait to have kids so that we can share this with them too.

  183. Gretchen E.

    I’m giving the gift of time. I’m offering free babysitting services, baking/cooking, pet sitting, volunteering where/when I can, etc…since my husband’s been off of work due to an injury, money’s pretty tight, but I always have a little time to give.

  184. Tiffany

    I’m baking cookies…I hate to bake. I consider that a pretty selfless good act. 🙂

  185. Susie Daggett

    My son had two payments left on his car and we paid it off

  186. Alexia561

    My nephew has always wanted a Reds jersey, so I finally found one I think he’ll like! He’s a big Cincinnati Reds fan, but I love him anyways. 😉

  187. laura maya

    I made a photo album for my mom with pictures from her 3 months visiting us here in the US! She will love!!!

  188. Alexa Angell

    I’m excited about a lot of the gifts we are giving this year, but I’m excited to introduce my best friend to BirchBox via a gift subscription 🙂

  189. Caitlin

    The perfect cook book for my boyfriend.

  190. Beth

    My son knows I love Jane Austen, and he came up with a funny mashup idea inspired by the Phineus & Ferb cartoon — Pride & Platypus. I’ve often wished I could draw cartoons of his ideas, but I’m hopeless. This time though I asked a friend who does art on commission to draw it for him, and although it probably won’t be the most fun present he receives or the one he likes best, I think he’ll be proud of it, and it will be the one he remembers as special because he came up with it.

  191. Hilary

    I’m giving my bf’s brother birchbox men and i can’t wait!

  192. Crystal Gregg

    My love..

  193. Allison

    Guess I should figure that out pretty soon, huh?

  194. Jen K

    My nephew is going go through a series of treatments for allergies and I rounded up all the ‘Going to the Doctor’ books I could find at Barnes & Noble. I think he will feel a little better and brave knowing that all his fav characters have been down that road.
    My daughter is always pretending to vacuum. I dont know why she loves our Dyson so much. I found a toy dyson that looks almost exactly like ours… she will NOT stop playing with that one!

  195. Heather

    A pretty pink jewelry box for my ten y/o so that she can store all of the beautiful brooches her Great Uncle has been giving her this last year 🙂

  196. Ali M

    A subscription to Umba, thanks to your reviews!

  197. Dianne

  200. Denise F

    treating my hubby to vip tickets to go see Jabawookez in Vegas.

    I think the best gift is the fact that my parents are going to be with us for Christmas! Kids are excited because they know G-ma is bringing baked goodies.

  202. Meghan C

    Hmmm, I don’t know really. I bought my dad a fishing pole which I know he’ll enjoy, and my boyfriend has been dying for some cologne so he got that as well. Nothing super exciting this year!

  203. gary

    I haven’t done any shopping yet!

    I’m giving my husband three pairs of Clark shoes that I got from the outlets! Best part is that they were on sale 😉

  207. Amber

    A baby boy!

  208. Alice

    I think the best gifts I am giving is not what is inside but the wrapping itself. I got some Justin Bieber wrapping paper from Target Clearance last year. But ohhhh how I wish I had some Miley Cyrus or Hannah Montana paper.

  218. Caroline Perry

    The best gift in my opinion is food and family! I will be giving both!

  219. Aoife K

    The best gift I’m giving is a ticket home to Ireland. My mother has been very homesick these past few years. She’s from a family of 6, and although we use skype, it’s not the same. I saved up all year to send her. She’s going to be very surprised!

  220. Jennifer Cochran

    The best give I’ve ever given was when we were very young, very broke, and I put away $10 and $20 at a time to save for a Playstation for my husband. He still calls it the best present ever – 15 years later!

    Which doesn’t make up for the fact that I have one small present and one stocking stuffer purchased for this Christmas!

  221. Julie S

    I am giving an upcycled infinity scarf made from old skirts.

    Well…in my daughter’s opinion it will be an Easy Bake Oven 😉

    I’ve gotten two great MZ Wallace bags for myself and two for my mom at 30-50% off during their advent calendar sale!

    Can’t wait to give my dad the cologne we bought for him, he’s been looking for it for a long time ~ Thank you for the giveaway!

  238. Sarah

    It’s a tossup between my daughter’s laptop and the fun-yet-educational gifts I got for all of our nieces & nephews (snap circuits & hieroglyph sets! I hope they let me play with them lol!).. and cookies, everyone is getting so many cookies. How can that not be at the top of the list of things to give?!

  239. Amy Grainger Ballou

    The best gift I am giving is the new Kurig to my mom that I won from a sweepstakes.

  240. Shannon

    Tool chest for my husband aka a place to find a screwdriver because I know we must have at least 5 but can never find one

  241. Paula

    I’m getting my dad a vintage pocket watch for his collection.

  242. Melissa

    The best gift I am giving is to my sister. We usually get each other a bunch of small gifts instead of a big one. So She’s getting a tote bag with gloves, pajama pants, owl slippers, lipstick, lotion, t-shirt…lots of fun stuff!

  243. Hildee

    Giving everyone in the family new watches. It’s the first year both kids want them. Michelle for me (a bargain at Watch Station), Michael Kors for the 18 year old, Ted Baker for my hubby and a Casio for my 12 year old son. (Plus a cool digital Penguin as a surprise!)

    Giving gifts to kids who might not otherwise have presents for Christmas! I wish I could see them get the gifts, but I know they will like them because they put down an item they really want!

  248. Lauren

    The best gift I am giving is money for my nephew and little sister’s savings accounts. They both get sooooo many toys and other things, so I just deposit money into their savings. They will (hopefully) appreciate it when they are older!

  249. Becky

    Lego set for my son

  250. Christina

    I am giving a camera to my eight year old. It has been his number one request for the last three Christmases and he is finally responsible enough to own one.

  251. kara mishmash

    My father-in-law passed away in Feb and my grandmother passed away in Aug. My husband and I went on the star registry and named stars after them for my MIL and my Papap. The stars a and they are a perfect representation of them in heaven for us to see.
