The Everymom’s 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

  • FOR YOU, FROM US: The Everymom Editors

Holidays as a parent are absolutely the best – nothing compares to seeing the reflection of pure holiday spirit on your little one’s face. Whether it’s their first time seeing all the lights strung up, wrapping and giving gifts, spending time with extended family, reading all of the stories relevant to winter holidays, or helping to deck the halls and walls with holiday cheer, it’s all so much more fun with kiddos around.

Holidays as a parent also come with a lot of added overwhelm, though. All of a sudden, you’re the one hosting and cooking. You have to plan time for visiting Santa and driving to see light displays. You have to get everyone dressed and bribed for holiday photos (not to mention address and send those cards). And, let’s not forget the biggest time-suck of them all: holiday shopping. You’ve got your kids, your parents, your husband, your co-workers’ gift exchange, and oh yeah, those eight adorable nieces and nephews you’ve gathered over the years. It can be a lot to manage, to say the least.

Don’t worry – we get it, and we are right there with you. To give you a hand and a jumpstart on shopping, we’ve curated these gift guides for everyone on your list: the kids you love, the mom friends you lean on, the grandparents you couldn’t do without, the guys who continue to be your support system, everyone is covered.

We scoured the internet so you don’t have to, and almost all of these 100+ items are under $100 (there are a few splurge items for those extra-special giftees). We’re hoping this helps you get those gifts checked off your list quickly so you can stop racing against the clock and be present for this beautiful time in your family’s life. Happy shopping!
