Holiday Gift Guide For Adults
Let’s Color Together coloring book
Let’s Color Together is my very first self-published coloring book for both adults and children. It was initially designed with side-by-side complex and simple illustrations for adults to color alongside their children/grandchildren, but it can also be used as an adult coloring book. In the book, I share ways to make the coloring pages more detailed with patterns, shading, and textures.
Ozeri Green Earth Pan
I absolutely love this pan and use it daily. It’s a great staple for your home and the perfect gift for someone who has a love for cooking.
Bakeshop Mystery Books
Do you love reading mystery books? What about baking? Things are heating up in the bakery. Who’s the murderer? The Bakeshop Mystery books even includes some delightful recipes to bake. The books are recommended for ages 18+ but may be suitable for older teens as well. Some books contain situations like divorce and affairs, so keep this in mind if it is a concern. Bakeshop Mystery books are authored by Ellie Alexander. I received the book Caught Bread Handed from the series.
Wooden Burlap Wall Hanging
This is a gorgeous piece that can be personalized for the recipient.
doTERRA Essential Oils
Essential oils from doTERRA are high-quality and make a great gift for those who love oils, have been wanting to try them, or want to learn more. Interested in signing up yourself to earn a discount and free oils education? Register here.
Essential Oils Diffuser Locket Necklace
As a gift for myself, I purchased one of these necklaces to diffuse oils that help with my anxiety or help me to focus better throughout the day.
Faux Cable Infinity Scarf
This is a gorgeous scarf that can be made and gifted for the holidays. Personally, I would love one of these! They are fairly simple to make, too!
Dirt Devil Quick Flip Pro Cordless Bagless Handheld Vacuum
This gift is perfect for adults and young adults who like easy-access vacuums. Even my kids have gotten use out of it! Buy it for use in a car, quick clean up in craft rooms, or for college students!
Minted Photo Wall Art
I personally love Minted wall art. I have some in our home, like this North Carolina photo art and our printed art for the playroom makeover, and I also have gifted some of their products, like a Wisconsin photo art piece. Their products are always a huge hit.
Dyson Fan Heater
This is a great gift for those who are hot all the time, cold all the time, or live somewhere the temperature changes frequently! I use mine daily.
Salt lamps are supposed to help with a ton of different things like anxiety, depression, migraines, and more. I recently purchased this set and I love them! We use them in the family area during the day and in the boys’ room at night until they fall asleep.
Color-In Recipe Journal
I adore this recipe journal. Color the pages and fill in the recipe cards with family recipes! You can use it in the book as is or take them out. I purchased one to color with my kids and fill with a few of our favorite recipes and gift to a family member who loves to cook (and loves the keepsake aspect of something the boys and I colored in–though your recipient can color their own if they want.).
Give the gift of flawless lip color that doesn’t smear (I’m totally getting this for when my husband returns from overseas, just saying.). Email [email protected] for more details.
Dyson DC59 Motorhead Cordless Vacuum
I absolutely love this vacuum and use it daily.
Logo Board Game
This is a fun game older kids and adults can enjoy. Since our kids are too young for this game, we love playing it when we have board game night with friends!
Pasta Measuring Tool
Not only is this a funny gift, but it is also really helpful! This tool helps you better measure the correct amount of pasta for the number of people you are serving (so you don’t go overboard and cook for an army…like I often do.).
R2-D2 Measuring Cup Set
Here’s a great one for the Star Wars lover in your life. This is great for college students, too.
