One of my absolute favorite parts of the holidays is shopping for gifts, wrapping gifts, and on Christmas morning, watching loved ones open these gifts.  Robbie and I host my family at our place, and we make a bit of a production out of each person individually unwrapping his/her presents by the fire while drinking hot chocolate and mimosas.  We take the time (sometimes a little excessively, I'll admit), to enjoy each gift one at a time (something that will undoubtedly change once baby is born and old enough to unwrap presents of her own!).  We also have an agreement not to spend a lot of money, so although there may be a bigger, more practical gift or two thrown in there, it's more about fun, smaller gifts that fit each person's personality.  For today's holiday gift guide, I'm sharing a round-up of the type of presents I'll be giving this year (including a couple that I may have already purchased - shhhhh!).  The best part is that they're all under $25.

Have you started your holiday shopping?  Do you focus on smaller, fun presents, or do you go for the bigger, more practical gifts?

  3. What an amazing collection of beautiful things, and I also love that some are practical! This year I'll only get my parents and brother gifts, so I'll probably get the something small and no too practical (;

  10. Thanks for the feature! :) We do both- the kids tend to get one big thing and then there's some smaller things too, especially for the stockings.

  12. We've done the magnets from Stickygram and looooove them!

    We do the one-gift-at-a-time thing with my side of the family, too. My husband's side kind of does it... but not really. It's a bummer, because I like to see what everybody got!
