Blog Crush: The Best Gift Guides

First things first - happy DUE DATE to Nicole and her little man. Too bad he hasn't yet made an appearance, she's not loving that. Soon, though, very soon I'm sure! 

Now, onto the topic of the day! We usually do Blog Crush on a Friday (but we ditched Friday posts) and it's usually just of one magnificent blog, but today you're in luck! We're highlighting several of our favorite blogs that did gift guides this month and we think they're pretty spectacular!

I tried to round up a variety of gift guides and they cover a lot of things our gift guides did not, so if you're a last minute shopper, this is your cue! 

Blog Crush all the best gift guides

You all know I love me some Camp Patton but this post from her is exceptionally exciting. This is the perfect kind of post for those people you know you should get a little something for but you aren't exactly close with them so you don't want to spend a whole lotta dough. Enter Camp Patton's Gifts Under $20!

One of my favorite people, IRL!, who is a blogger also came up with a prettttyyyy amazing gift guide for those of you putting it off until the last second. Emily from Daily Garnish is fabulous and she writes about a ton of things from Stitch Fix/ThredUp to Mommy stuff and obviously Food, based on her blog title! Check out her 2016 Last-Minute Holiday Gift Ideas.

Moving on... I haven't written a Blog Crush about Reading my Tea Leaves because honestly, I just found this amazing blog myself BUT - she did not disappoint on the gift guide. I love something that's a bit purposeful and Erin nailed it with these Gifts to Shift Habits. There are some amazing ideas on here, some as small and inexpensive as reusable grocery bags.

Well, we've all got em'. Okay, well most of us have them at least - I'm referring to coworkers of course! You have those coworkers who always bring a little something for the people they sit next to? Or continually bring in holiday cookies and treats for the office. Or maybe you're doing a white elephant holiday party with work. Not to fret! Career Contessa, which is one of my favorite blogs, put together the Ultimate Coworker Gift Guide this year! I mean seriously, did you even know Uber had gift cards?!

There you have it, 6 of my favorite blogs who also did Gift Guides this year. I love all of these, and would be lying if I said I didn't buy a few things off these lists to add under my very crowded Christmas tree. Did you do a gift guide this year? Share it in the comments and help out those last minute shoppers!
