Stuff We Love! (Gift Guide for Moms and Dads)

Disclosure: We received samples of some of the items in this gift guide in order to facilitate the writing.  No compensation was received for featuring items in this guide.  All opinions are 100% our own.

If you have made it through my Holiday Gift Guide thus far, you know that we have spent the last few months searching far and wide for the coolest, most engaging, most bang-for-your-buck toys and gadgets that any kid would love.

But how about for US, you know, the PARENTS?  Mom and Dad?  How about some great gift ideas for your significant other or maybe just something fun to ask for for yourself?

We found some great gift ideas at various price points.  Enjoy!

Canvas Print from Fabness (Prices from $45)
Take that favorite picture off the camera card and enjoy it every single day with a beautiful canvas print!  I had on of my very favorite pictures from the kids’ fall photo session blown up to a 16×20 canvas print from Fabness.  It is now hanging in my office and makes me smile every time I catch a glance of it!  Canvas prints are a timeless keepsake and you can choose a size that works best for your wall space!


Cross Pens’ Click Star Wars Gel Ink Pen Collection ($45)
We have been fans of Cross Pens for years.  In fact, my wedding gift to Bob was a Cross Pen!  He still keeps it at his office and uses it to sign his important documents.  To celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Cross has released a special Star Wars Gel Ink Pen Collection.  Choose from Stormtrooper, C-3PO or Darth Vader pens.

Telefora Holiday Floral Arrangement featuring the PEANUTS gang (from $59.95)
Flowers have the ability to cheer up even my drabbest of days.  I love receiving a delivery of fresh flowers and recently I had the chance to check out a Teleflora holiday bouquet.  I opened the cellophane packaging and the smell of roses and pine hit me with an instant fresh holiday scent.  The flowers were bright and full, the roses just starting to bloom.  We enjoyed this arrangement for a couple of weeks – they brightened the whole kitchen!  The icing on the cake was the PEANUTS theme.  Our flowers were actually held in a Snoopy-themed cookie jar!  My kids were thrilled to help me stash some holiday snacks into the jar once our flowers were no more.  These arrangements would make a fantastic holiday gift to friends and family near or far!

For the cook on your holiday list, especially the person who loves discovering traditional cooking and recipes, this beautiful 100th anniversary book from Kauffman’s Fruit Farm would make a perfect gift.  Celebrating 100 years of farming and growing produce in Lancaster County, PA, this book features recipes, historical notes and personal anecdotes.  Among the many recipes published in this book are the following must-makes:  Cider Granola, Apple Brickle Dip, Pork Chop Pear Skillet, Summer Peach & Melon Freeze, Strawberry Jam with Honey and  Apples & Cider Cheesecake.

Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer (from $210)
We don’t just like coffee around here.  WE LOVE COFFEE around here.  We love coffee, lattes and everything in between.  We love hot coffee and iced coffee, coffee flavored drinks and coffee-flavored desserts.  As a huge fan of coffee, it can be so hard to get a good brew at home.  Traditional machines often fall short of producing that barista-quality beverage.  That is, until the Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer hit store shelves.  Now coffee lovers can make delicious cafe-style drinks fairly effortlessly.  We have been enjoying the strong brew that the Ninja produces, and are just starting to delve into its specialty beverage capabilities. Choose between Classic Brew, Rich Brew, Over Ice, and Specialty Brew.  This machine would delight the coffee aficionado on your holiday shopping list!

Silhouette Cameo Cutting Machine, Craft Kits and Accessories (from $5)
You know by now how much I love my Silhouette machine. I use it weekly to make all sorts of fun crafts.  Sometimes I keep them for myself and other times I make them to give as gifts.  If you have a DIY/crafty type person to shop for this year, I can’t speak highly enough about these machines!  If they already have a machine, there are many accessories and craft kits that you can buy for them to play around with!  This holiday season I will be trying out fabric paint, stencils and more!
