Gift Guides (Sunny Side Up)

It’s time!  Bring on the popcorn and Christmas movies!

Gift Guides (Sunny Side Up)

Christmas movies are on repeat at our house and they are cheering us up immensely.  Rudolph is just a welcome sight every year isn’t he!?  The best.  I recently picked up this cute red hot air popcorn maker from Walmart and we have been having so much fun with it!  I’ve always been a popcorn lover at heart and there’s something magical about using a popcorn maker to pop your own.  Makes it feel extra special. :)  This popcorn maker is small but packs a big punch and is so easy to use!  (I got the cute bowls at Walmart last time I was there too but can’t find them on-line!  Shared a few similar options below.)  We’ve  been debating buying a larger popcorn maker for our theatre room and are looking at a couple of these options.  It would be so much fun when we can start having parties in this room again!  *Hint hint Santa.. :)

Today I’m sharing some fun gift ideas from Walmart!  They have such a great selection – something for everyone on your list!  I’ve found that my husband is always the hardest for me to buy for so I wanted to share some things I know he would love first.  I ended up stealing a few of my own ideas. ;)  #jobperk

If you know someone who loves to cook shopping is a breeze!  So many fun options.  As an anti-chef I’m lucky to have many people around me who are excellent cooks!  I am more than happy to support them in their hobby by buying them all sorts of fun cooking gadgets.  (LOVE all of the options below!)  Then I can insist that they have me over when they cook to you know.. witness for myself how the products are working.

I’ll set the table. :)

Gifts for kids are my absolute favorite to buy.  You too!?  I’ll have some fun ideas coming soon for teens, but if you have little ones below are things my 3 kids would have absolutely LOVED when they were younger!  A couple of the items are things they would still use/love now.  It’s so magical watching little kids on Christmas morning.  We were watching some family movies of past Christmases the other night and I teared up watching the look on my kids’ faces when they saw what Santa had left.  Magic! :)

  1. Lovely items! I do want to say that the small tool kit under “Gifts for him” is also an equally great gift for the Her! For years, this type of tool kit has been my “go to” graduation gift for guys and gals. I give this as a high school graduation gift, for taking to college. My niece graduates from high school this year, and she will be getting this tool kit!

    When my daughter graduated from high school in 2003, my sister in law gave her a tool kit, and it turned out to be the BEST gift! We put it to use the day we helped her move into he dorm, for adjusting her bed. Now married, with 3 little girls, and a homeowner, she still has that tool kit today, and uses it for all kinds of home needs.

    A good basic took kit is something everyone should have. My dad gave one to me decades ago when I had my first apartment in college. At the time, I thought “Boring”, but now 40+ years later I am using that same tool box!

    1. Oh my word.. I LOVE your comment and couldn’t agree more! In fact if I put together another gift guide for HER I’m going to include the tool kit! SO SMART! And you’re absolutely right.. a great gift for anyone graduating and moving out! I remember getting “boring” gifts like that from my parents after I moved out, but they always turned out to be the most practical items that I really needed! Thanks for sharing and happy December! xo

  2. I’m catching up on your blogs – been keeping up on Instagram, but haven’t had a chance to check email as much lately. Anyway, that gingerbread set is adorable!! Of course it’s out of stock now, but would have been such a cute idea! So many good ones you have listed!

    1. Thank you MaryJo! I know.. cute right!? So happy you had a minute to hang out with me here. :) Happiest holidays to you and your family! xo

  3. where are your white and gray vases from on your popcorn bar? So pretty and just what I’ve been looking for! Thank you!
