Half Crazy Mama’s Annual Gift Guide

Every year I share with you all some of my favorite gift ideas.  On the list you will find gift ideas for everyone on your list.  There is a little something of everything and a well rounded one-stop-shop! Buckle up, here we go! 

S’well– These are hands down my favorite water bottle. I am not sponsored or given any free product from them, I just legit love them. They come in 3 sizes. My family and I all use them daily.  Everyone drinks water, so this is a good gift for everyone! 

Great Ink T-Shirts– All Greater Ink shirts have a fantastic design AND 100% of the profits benefit charity! Give a gift that means something more. They have kids, womens and mens shirts. Some of my favorite Greater Ink shirts feature “Live Inspired”, “Science Matters”, and “Kindness is Contagious”. Check them all out here. They also have holiday shirts! Use code HalfCrazyMama for 15% off your purchase!  My Little Monkey LOVES their shirts (and I love that they are empowering and benefit great charities like Boys and Girls Club, Born This Way Foundation, Special Olympics, and Human Rights Watch.) I don’t know many other companies that donate ALL of their profits!

Fitbit Charge HR– I think a Fitbit is a great gift because it encourages a person to be active. The Fitbit Charge is an affordable option, super user friendly, and even includes a built in heart rate monitor.  They have different colors available including all black and this cute little number that is light lavender and rose gold.

Disney Dooney & Bourke Handbag– There are lots to choose from and you can’t go wrong with any of them!  This would be a fantastic gift for the Disney fan on your list. You don’t have to be at one of the parks to buy them either! Check out shopDisney.com for a great selection.  I love the new Bambi one! 

Give the gift of a RACE- Whether it is a 5k, virtual run, or a marathon, the gift of a race for a runner is always appreciated.  Here are some discount codes: For the Los Angeles Marathon use code EMELIALA18.  For Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series use code RNB15.  

Bose Wireless Headphones– Everyone loves music and nobody likes cords, so here you go!  The perfect gift for the hard to shop for person.  Also a great gift for a runner, college student, traveler, and everyone in between. 

Popsockets– Seriously, these are all the craze right now. They would make a great stocking stuffer! They stick to the back of a cellphone case and work as an easy way to hold your phone as well as a stand. You can interchange the designs too, so it is fun to collect them!

Thug Kitchen Cookbook– This isn’t your grandmas cookbook!  It uses swear words and all the recipes are plant based.  It is awesome!  It is funny, but also practical.  

Rose Gold Vans– Rose gold is super popular these days and these rose Vans won’t disappoint.  My Little Monkey and I both loved them so much we each got a pair! 

Alex and Ani “What is for you will not pass you” Bracelet– While we are talking about how awesome rose gold is, lets also talk about this bracelet from Alex and Ani.  It is beautiful and inspiring.  Perfect for the special friend, daughter, aunt, and any other lady in your life. 

Le Creuset 5 1/2 Quart Enameled Cast-Iron Dutch Oven– This gift is pricey, but is perfect for someone who loves to cook.  It is cast-iron and will last forever, so it can also be passed down for generations.  It is the one pot you can cook an entire meal in, from the stove top to the oven.  I love roasting vegetables in mine. So delicious! 

It also comes in lots of fun colors. 

Spiralizer– If the Le Creuset is out of your budget, but you need a present for someone that loves to cook how about a spiralizer?  It does so much more than just Zoodles (zucchini noodles)! For a complete present pair it with the cook book below!

Ispiralized Cookbook– I have this cookbook and the recipe for Sweet Potato Carbonara is delicious!  

What If? : Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions– This book is entertaining and fun for any book worm…and even a person who isn’t a bookworm. 

Jalapeno Grill Rack– We love making our own Jalapeño Poppers and this is perfect for the grill. Use the corer to core the pepper, stuff with cheese, place in rack and grill!

Disturbed Friends– If you like the game Cards Against Humanity, then this is the next game to add to your collection.  Fair warning though, if you found Cards Against Humanity offensive then this is not the game for you.  

What is on your wishlist this year?
