Gift Guides

We've rounded up seriously cute & seriously useful items for your Star Baker. So, in homage to our favorite quirky show in a tent...our top baking-inspired gifts for the GBBO fan.
There's nothing better than curling up on a cozy winter day and binge watching some Bake Off. Nothing. Better. When you hear that comforting sound the little stir of the cake batter makes and watch the careful placement of the raspberry on the cake top in the opening credits? Swoon. I contemplated working 'soggy bottom' into the article title...
I've rounded up 24 whimsical, delightful -- &, ahem, not at all cheesy -- gifts for the Harry Potter-lover. Everything from a slick coding wand & games for the family to fashion accessories + even our fave illustrated version of the series.
We're wands deep in the Harry Potter franchise over here, friends. We kicked off the series when Lana was age 4, and we've read it through twice since then. It's one of my favorite things we've done together. As dark as the series can be, it was a perfect way for us to talk about some real world truths...
The next best thing to sipping coffee at Luke’s or scoring a chair at Friday night dinner are these gitfs for those who'd rather be in Stars Hollow (aka the Gilmore Girls-Obsessed.)
Lorelai and Rory have been in our lives for more than 20 years, and thanks in part to Netflix (and the fact that the show is, quite simply, iconically witty and heartfelt), The Gilmore Girls only gets more popular each year. Chances are you probably have someone in your life who would rather be living in Stars Hollow. Okay, maybe...
Literature is my love language. I love good book-related gift as much as the next nerd, but b/c shopping for a bookworm can be challenging, I've found 12 book lovers' gifts for you.
Literature is my love language. I've been staying up way too late finishing "just one more chapter" since I was little. I love a book-related holiday gift as much as the next nerd, but I know shopping for a bookworm can be challenging. What gifts are out there other than a gift card to bookstore? I've rounded up 12...
Have a comic book lover in your life (or someone looking to start drawing)? We've found uber-cool gift ideas for them (think drawing, drafting & swag).
I think one of the most daunting things about walking into an art store is the 4,000 types of paper and 800 types of pencils lining the walls. If you have someone in your life who loves comic books or is looking to start drawing, I've gone uber-hard finding some cool gift ideas for them. I’ll keep it short...
Once again, we're looking for cool, unique gift ideas for tweens & teens. We prefer gifts that go beyond the usual requests (video games, phones,) but still have some sort of 'wow' factor.
Things are changing in our house. Our old playroom, once filled with blocks and Magna-Tiles and dress-up costumes and Nerf guns...has been recently renovated so our two boys (a teen and a tween) now have their own bedrooms. Instead of swinging on bars and building towers, there's a lot more moody listening of music going on. 17 Cool...
I'm sharing 10 items that we had, loved & will 100% have on hand again for Baby #2. Oh...and all but one? Are under $100. So, whether you're registering yourself or someone else, this is a solid place to start, friends.
Sponsored by Babylist and ShopStyle Collective. Obviously, it took us a while (like...uhhhh, six years) to commit to the idea of expanding our family. The whole cancer storyline threw a wrench in things, but then, even when that was nearly behind us, there was most definitely a sense of whoa, are we really ready to start over...again? that made even...
Obvi our kids were going to learn how to play chess. We’re not trying to raise grandmasters; we think chess is a life skill. From the best chess boards to apps & books: our 5 tips.
I first beat Mike on our honeymoon. We were staying at some small B&B in California, and it was raining that day. Moodily, we poked around the nooks and crannies of the ground floor, until we came upon a window seat, complete with a chessboard. It was one of those beautiful, carved things — we were immediately drawn in....
Thank you to QVC & ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post! I'm in the process of purchasing my first home, and let me tell you all, I've got a list that is a mile long for all the things I'll need! New furniture, cleaning supplies, all the tools and gadgets for the many DIY projects I envision myself doing...and at...
If you've been reading here for any length of time, you may have gleaned that my husband, Chris, is what one might call a discerning consumer. To be fair, he'd never outright say that a gift sucked -- he's far too gracious and polite -- but he's genuinely the hardest person to shop for in our family. In part...
