Holiday Gift Guide: Kids & Pets

Anne’s Picks

My top pick for the little girl in your life is a pair of raspberry rose Converse.  My daughter has a pair and they have proven to be the most versatile shoes in her wardrobe.  They look great with everyday jeans and leggings but she also wears them with a skirt and tights to make her outfit a little more colorful.  If only I could pull off a pair.


1. Tulle skirt ($29.50), 2. Apple pie set ($19.99), 3. That’s Not My Princess ($9.99), 4. Converse ($25),  5. Say Please tea set ($18.99)

I’m obsessed with sequins this holiday (who isn’t?!) so I love this sequin pet collar from Rogue Collars. I’ve already decked out my pooch, Lena, in the red one for Christmas.  Much to the dismay of the hubs, I’ll be buying different colors for later in the year!


1. Vintage Pet ID tag ($14.50), 2. Biscuit Jar ($28), 3. Nordic dog sweater ($10), 4. Sequin Pet Collar ($13), 5. Knit Catnip Mouse ($5.50)

Stef’s Picks

From babies to toddlers, any little man will look adorable in this Christmas tie onesie sold by WeChooseJoy on Etsy. I dressed Lincoln in a non-holiday version for his six month pictures and the cuteness never stopped. Pair it with some plaid pants or put a flannel over it and your little guy will have the ladies swooning.

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Guys

Anne’s Picks

My top pick for the man in your life this year is a cotton cashmere full zip hoodie from JCrew.  This hoodie is perfect for your dad, your husband or your little brother.  It is casual enough for the weekends and nice enough to wear over a button down shirt for a Saturday night dinner.


1. Reversible scarf ($49.50), 2. Cotton Cashmere hoodie ($98), 3. Personalized grill tools ($79.95), 4. Twill Travel Bag ($168), 5. Watch ($115)

Katie’s Picks

If you’re looking to splurge, the ever-popular iPad is perfect for business travelers, foodies and avid readers.  But for a more budget-friendly gift, the All Clad Instant Thermometer should be in every dude’s stocking.  It may not seem too sexy but once he starts getting praise for his perfectly grilled meats, he’ll think it’s the best gift ever.

1. iPad ($499), 2. Corduroy Blazer ($198), 3. Funny Face Magnets ($8.99), 4. Leather Catch All ($29), 5. All Clad Instant Read Thermometer ($39.95), 6. The Pacific DVD set ($51)

It is quite hard for me to pick my favorite of these gifts for men. Luckily, my husband already purchased himself his Christmas gift from me in September. While I do not condone cheering for the Cardinals, my hubby is a die hard fan and I love the vintage rugby hooded sweatshirt. Much more stylish than that free t-shirt he got at the game ten years ago. If you are not a Cardinals fan, like myself, they do make similar items for your man’s team.

If you are looking for just a little something, three words. Bacon Flavored Soda.


1. Plaid poplin shirt ($49.50), 2. UPro GPS ($199), 3. Sports rugby hoodie ($75), 4. Jones bacon soda ($9.99), 5. Golf ball wine stopper ($25), 6. Coal Frena beanie ($19.95), 7. Monogram branding iron ($56.95)
