Two Peas and Their Pod Holiday Gift Guide

Today, we are sharing our annual Holiday Gift Guide. We have gift ideas for him, her, and even the kiddos. There is something for everyone on your list! Most of these items can be bought online so you don’t even have to fight the crowds to find that perfect gift. And I highly recommend you do most of your shopping tomorrow because it is Cyber Monday. Lots of things will be on sale! Yay! I am going to try and get all of my Christmas shopping done in my pj’s tomorrow so I can focus on cookie baking and spending time with the family the rest of the holiday season.

We had fun putting together our holiday gift guide, we hope you find it helpful! And make sure you check out our SHOP for MORE gift ideas. Our SHOP has all of our favorite things and this list was getting too long so I added in a lot of new items! Make sure you check them out! Happy holiday shopping!

  1. Great suggestions. I will be definitely purchasing a couple of these. I’m confused though when you say to check out your shop for more ideas. When I click it on it just takes me back to your blog site which I happen to love by the way and read faithfully. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks!

  2. Your post stirred up an old memory for me! When my now almost 19-year old son moved from a crib to a big boy bed, we decorated his big boy room in a transportation theme. His bedding was the same exact pattern as the sleeping bag you feature in your post. While every stage is exciting as we watch our children make the transition into adulthood, I must admit I do miss those before bedtime snuggles with a good book (or two or three…) Enjoy every moment with your precious boys. Before you know it, they’ll be out of the house, too.
