Hi there. Welcome back to the Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide by yours truly. This is a labor of love, fueled by my gut instinct to gather ALL THE THINGS in one place, my foolish desire to do it on a self-imposed deadline — all culminating in me sitting here, basking in the glow of our newly decorated Christmas tree and feeling quite accomplished. Because I did it! Seven gift guides!
That’s roughly 180 gift ideas, give or take a few.
In case you’re just now joining us, these are the six previous guides:
For this last guide we are spending $5 or less. I mean, some days I spend more than this on coffee. So … there’s a bonus stocking stuffer idea that I didn’t include: A $5 gift card to Starbucks.
A quick word on the process
1. This guide includes gifts in the $1-$5 range. You might find a bargain or two tucked inside because it is the holiday season and prices fluctuate faster than you can say GIFTCARD PLEASE.
2. You’ll notice I break it down “She,” “He” and “Wee.” It’s suggestion, not definition. I do not believe in gender stereotyping or ageism or whatnot. I pretty much want everything on this list. Especially the Peter Pan print.
Because, like the freebie I created says, I never want to grow up.
Anyone else looking forward to Peter Pan Live on the 4th? Christopher Walken as Hook, people! That’s reason enough for me.
Back to the $5 holiday gift guide.
Are you ready? Get your mice set. And gooooooo clicking.
