Over the past few weeks I’ve shared gift ideas for kids, gift ideas for tweens and games that make great gifts. With the holidays about a week and a half away I’m sharing the last of my gift ideas today- gifts for adults. Whether you are looking for a unique gift for the person who has everything or you have someone on your list who you struggle to buy for every year, check out the ideas below for some “gift”spiration :) You just might find that *perfect* gift!
Nelle and Lizzy Personalized Jewelry
I love personalized jewelry and Nelle and Lizzy makes beautiful pieces including birthstone jewelry, initial charms and more. Their jewelry is the perfect gift for a mom or grandma and would make a sweet gift for a new mom celebrating her first holiday with baby. It can also be given as a special piece of remembrance jewelry for a woman who has lost a loved one. Nelle and Lizzy made me a beautiful custom piece that honored Avery, Jacob’s twin that I had lost during pregnancy, along with celebrating my two boys, Jacob and Lucas. (Stay tuned to Instagram- I’ll be sharing a picture soon!)

Vellabox is a curated candle subscription box that makes a great gift that can be enjoyed year-round.

Custom photo blanket
I love getting personalized gifts and the best ones are ones that have my kids pictures on them. If you are looking for the perfect gift for a proud grandma, mom or aunt, how about a custom photo blanket from Collage.com? They have a variety to choose from but my favorite is the custom sherpa blanket. Made out of long-pile sherpa fleece with rounded corners and decorative stitching, the photos of your choice are in sharp detail on one side and cream-colored sherpa fleece is on the other.
