2023 Holiday Gift Guide

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

Tis the season for the holidays - lots and lots of cooking, spending time with friends and family, holiday parties, and gift-giving! Black Friday sales are right around the corner and this is one of our favorite times to find good deals on gifts for under the tree, as well as saving on regular staples in our kitchen and home. We have gathered a holiday gift guide with some of our favorite things for everyone your list (including yourself)!


Please note that many of these links are affiliate links, which if you use to make a purchase it helps support our small business at no additional cost to you  - we are incredibly thankful for your support in this way!  And many of the products we share are from fellow small businesses-owner friends, so you are supporting multiple families while you check off your Christmas shopping list.
