Woodwick Candles – We discovered these last year and have become totally addicted. The candle makes a crackling sound while it burns and the scents are UNBELIEVABLE. We’ve tried tons of different ones and my personal favorite is Warm Wool (the coziest smell EVER) and my husband’s current favorite is Lavender & Cedar.
Felt Letterboard – These are so fun, especially for counting down to special days for kids or for creating messages on holidays or special occasions.
Yeti Rambler – I jumped on the Yeti bandwagon a few years ago and haven’t looked back. I was amazed at how ice cold it kept my water, and was sold immediately. I now own three and always have one filled up.
Barefoot Dreams Throw Blanket – SO insanely soft and cozy! If I laid under this, I would never get up, and I would probably fall asleep in 2.2 seconds.
NEST Reed Diffuser Sets – I adore this gift set because it makes it easy to layer scents – use a reed diffuser + a candle for the ultimate in cozy scents. Your house will smell amazing!
Amazon Fire TV Stick – We have one of these for each of our TVs and love, love, love it! Super easy to use and you can access tons of different streaming options.
Wool Dryer Balls – My mom bought these for us many Christmases ago, and we haven’t used fabric softener or dryer sheets since. They’re fantastic!
Sonos – We have used this sound system in two houses now and we LOVE it. We own this audio receiver as a central “hub” and have it connected to the built-in speakers in our main floor and on the deck, a Sonos Play:5 speaker for our master bedroom/bathroom, and also have a Sonos One speaker in our garage. We’re able to play music from Sirius, Pandora, Spotify, virtually any other streaming service, and any music that’s on our devices. We’re hooked.
Nest Learning Thermostat – Another product that has followed us in two houses now. There are so many customizations you can make to the settings, it’s phenomenal. We usually set it to maintain one temperature during the day and then switch to a different temperature at night. You can view and control everything from your phone.
Eufy Robot Vaccum – We splurged on a Roomba within a week of moving into our house in 2015; with all hardwood and tile on the first floor and two Golden Retrievers, there were tumbleweeds of dog hair everywhere and we were vacuuming nearly every day just to keep up with it. It stopped working well and after doing some research, my husband bought this model, which is a fraction of the price and works just as well, if not better. We schedule it to run every night after we’re all in bed, and it really helps to keep all of the fur at bay.
Dyson Cordless Vacuum Cleaner – BUT! We still need to use a regular vacuum to get the hair that clumps under chairs or in corners, and I LOVED my old Dyson; this cordless version sounds amazing.
Kijaro Portable Camping and Sports Chair – If the person you’re shopping for spends any time outside, these are amazing! We bought them last summer when we were doing mostly outside socializing; they are incredibly comfortable, roomy, and have two cupholders.
My Pillow – A number of years ago, I was having tons of headaches and neck pain, but never thought it could have been the pillow I was sleeping on until my in-laws bought me a My Pillow for my birthday. The headaches and neck pain went away and never came back! I’m such a huge fan of these pillows and even brought it to the hospital with me when I had Dominic and Isabelle
Nugget Ice Maker – This ice maker has been taunting me since I first saw it on Amazon. It’s a splurge, but if you love that wonderful nugget ice (or know someone who does), then this would make the most amazing gift!
Simple Human Touch-Free Automatic Sensor Soap Pump – A couple of years ago, I asked for recommendations on soap pumps and a lot of you recommended this hands-free model. I bought one for the kitchen and after having it for only a few days, ordered another one for the powder room. It’s seriously the best! I love not having to touch it, which is great in a messy kitchen, and also in a powder room where it gets a lot of use and we’re trying to combat germs constantly!
Sunbeam Heated Throw Blanket – If you’re always cold like me, then a heated blanket is a MUST in the wintertime. My grandma always had a heating pad on, and every time I see a heated blanket I think of her :)
The Night Sky Prints – I am in love with this idea! You can have custom prints made of the night sky at a certain location and on a certain date, i.e. a wedding day, birth of a baby, etc. SO cool!
TELL ME! What would you add to this list? I’m always looking for new ideas!
