Holiday Gift Guides 2023: Family and Kids Gift Ideas

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

We are excited to bring to you gift guides number 3 & 4 for this Holiday Season! If you are on the hunt for items for the whole family or the kiddos in your life check out what our elves have discovered and included below. While we are loving all of these options- some of the Family ones we especially have our eyes on are the Parisian Christmastime puzzle and the Lego Pac-Man console (so nostalgic for me). Within the Kids ideas I have to say we are loving the Xylophone tree- a new artistic twist on the old standard and the swan pram (which I would have adored as a kid!) Regardless of our favorites, we attempted to capture varying price points so no matter what you are searching for, you are bound to hit a winner with any of these! While you are at it, check out our travel & hostess guides and our kitchen and food lover guides as well
