Holiday Gift Guide+Amazon

I love this time of year. I know you’re probably shocked because I’m normally talking about how much I enjoy Halloween. I love Halloween but Christmas comes in a close second for a favorite holiday. I love the cheesy Christmas music, the cozy sweaters, and of course the time you get to spend with family. I also love giving gifts. To be honest when my family and I lived in the domestic violence shelter this year I didn’t expect us to have a Christmas this year. But things worked out and we’ll be spending Christmas together in our own home with a Christmas tree and stockings. I’m still in Illinois at Ragdale for my writer’s residency so I won’t be able to help decorate but I know my mom and sister will do a great job.

I wanted to put together a list of items that I would like to receive and I’m sure you all would also. I’ll just include a few items in this post but you can view the full list here. Also, everything is from Amazon!


6 pack of wool socks (Purchase here for $11.88)


You’re not really an adult until you enjoy getting socks as gifts. I feel like I always need more socks. I swear they just disappear. Plus they’re so great to have to keep your feet cozy during this time of the year.


A glass water bottle (Purchase here for $14.95)

I’m always drinking a ton of water back at home but once I travel I seem to forget how much I should be really drinking. For one thing, I always get dehydrated on flights and this could easily be avoided if I would drink as much water as I do at home. I love these reusable bottles they are super environmentally friendly and so easy to clean.


Classic Triple Zip Top Handbag (Purchase here for $29.95)

There’s nothing I love more than a nice bag. I’m in love with handbags. I actually really need a new one so I’ve been searching for a nice everyday one. This is awesome because it has three compartments. As much as I try to be organized I always end up tossing everything into my bag. I also love this taupe color.


I can definitely do more of these holiday gift guides if you want, just let me know down in the comments!
