I am beyond excited to present Empty Nest Blessed’s 2017 Holiday Gift Guide! It’s such a labor of love for me to put this together. I believe that a well-selected gift is a tangible way that we show our precious one how much we love them. Thank you for letting me help you do that! It is a precious responsibility that I take very seriously. I shop for my loved ones from this gift guide, so I only include items that I would gift myself. (Or, let’s be real, something I want one of my loved ones to get for me!)
This holiday season you’ll see lots of gift guides out there, but I don’t think there will be others that are customized just for empty nesters like mine! Being empty nest blessed means you may be a part of the sandwich generation—you have young adult kids; you may have senior adult parents; and, if you’re really blessed, you have a grandkid or two as well. My gift guide will give you ideas for all of those groups, and more. One of my primary love languages is gift giving, and I’m one of those crazy people who really does think about and shop for the holidays all year long. I’ve been carefully curating this content for months—just for YOU!
With all you have to do this year, running around from store to store just isn’t the best way to get into the holiday spirit. I hope my gift guide will help you shop online from the comfort of home at a time that’s convenient for you! (For more tips on holiday shopping, see this post.) This year, more than ever before, online retailers are offering great deals, and many offer free shipping (or free site-to-store pickup) now as well. (Can I get a “Hallelujah?”)
I’m debuting my holiday gift guide today to help you get a jump on your holiday shopping. If you aren’t ready to deal with your holiday shopping yet, it’s fine! You can access my holiday gift guide all through the season up in the navigation bar at the top of the website. If you’re on your phone, go to the menu (looks like three lines stacked on top of one another) at the top of the home page, right under the Empty Nest Blessed logo. I’ll be adding to it as new things pop on my radar in the weeks to come, so check back frequently!
Click through the drop-down menu or use the links below to view each category. I hope you’ll find perfect gifts for your all of your precious ones.
May your empty nest be blessed this holiday season!
P.S. Funny story! When Bob and I were first married, he gave me a bunch of kitchen stuff for Christmas one year, and it really hurt my feelings. I wanted him to give me personal, girly gifts (ya’ know, like jewelry, and stuff)! Do you relate? In light of this, in my gift guide, I’ve created a separate category for home goods and kitchen items. While keeping in mind that lots of empty nesters are downsizing, I’ve included things like cool empty nester kitchen gadgets, unique doormats, and even a few unique tech gifts that you’ll love. Be sure to check out the “Gifts for the Home” category!
