All I want for Christmas is this and this and this.....

I am like a kid in a candy store when it comes to the holidays. My birthday is the beginning of December, then it's Hannukah, then Christmas, so yea, I flippin love the month of December!

Another thing I love? Etsy. I could buy one of everything from that site if the hubby didn't put his foot down and say no. I'm still working on changing his mind though, so wish me luck.

In honor of the holidays (don't panic, but Christmas is 6 weeks away, AHHHHHHHHH) here is an Etsy based holiday gift guide. And, if anyone feels so inclined to pick up anything for my birthday, I won't object! Just kidding.

For the men in your life:

My husband is in the military, so that requires him to be clean shaven all the time. Which is a ok with me! Rather than just using any old shave gel, I thought this might be a great gift! The kit includes: Hardwood Shaving Soap Bowl with Hardwood Lid, Hardwood Shaving Natural Bristle Brush, 1 Shaving Bar in scent of choice, and RHASSOUL CLAY: (Moroccan Lava Clay), which provides ease of razor glide. The scents you can choose range from Corona, Rum, and Killians beer, as well as others. What man wouldn't enjoy this?!

Also, men, it's ok to have a playful side, even while wearing a suit and tie!

Now, if you aren't a Megatron fan gentlemen, they also have Optimus Prime. I'm always rooting for the good guy! They come in copper, gold, and silver, so there are so many choices! And be sure to browse the shop, as I think Spiderman fans, Star Wars fans, and car/truck fans will not be disappointed.

For the kids:

Isn't it funny how trends come back in fashion? I was a kid of the 80s and wore legwarmers like it was my job! So I was pleased as punch to see these darling little numbers making a comeback. Best part? Can fits babies all the way to teens! I can see my niece now running around in them. I must stock up!

Throw on a onesie and a snazzy pair of legwarmers and your baby is ready to hit the town. You will have the most stylish baby on the block, in my opinion. I'd like a pair myself!

One thing I have learned over the years is that children have wonderful imaginations. And you never know when ideas will start flowing! That is why I love the Dine & Doodle.

I'm sure you are thinking, "Ummm Megan, we have coloring books, paper, pens, crayons, markers already". I get that. However, I'm all about convenience and I'm also lazy. I like things to be in one place for me so I'm not digging around my purse for an hour trying to find something. That's why I think this is handy dandy. It comes with a notepad, three crayons, a piece of chalk, and a chalk board and folds up into a nice, neat package. All in one place! This is the rockets and robots design, but there is also a cupcake one for the girls. So cute!

For the ladies:

Now ladies, don't think I forgot about you! There are so many items I'd love to show you, but then this post would be entirely too long. So I'll just limit it to my favorites.

I had these purse hooks in various stores and was intrigued, but never bought one. I received one at my bridal shower, and I must say, it's a brillant invention. Sometimes when I go out to eat, I don't want to throw my purse on the floor and there often is not a lot of room to leave it on the table. So this is when the hooks come in handy. It folds up nicely and fits right in your bag. Super convenient.

Lastly, I love love love this headband. I love the rosettes, the colors, everything! It's definitely on my wishlist! This would be a great gift to give to a friend, a co-worker, or even yourself! How darling with jeans and a t-shirt, or you can spice it up and wear it work! Definitely a must have. 

The gift possibilities through Etsy are endless. There is definitely something for everyone! Good luck with shopping!
