We love it when moms share ideas with other moms (and we love the holidays!), so we’ve worked with our contributor team to collect gift ideas, holiday-themed activities, and great stories to help inspire you this holiday season!
2021 Holiday Gift Guide
We asked our contributor team to share their favorite gift ideas for kids of all ages.

Toddlers are a tough group to parent, but they also get so excited to open up gifts that it makes up for all (or at least some) of the tantrums. Our contributor team shares their favorite gifts for this age group!
As we see our little kids develop their own preferences and start to share ideas with other kids their age, it can be both hard and rewarding to find a gift that matches their personalities. Our contributor team shares their favorite gifts for little kids!
Check out the gifts that the big kids (ages 7+) in our contributor’s lives are excited to receive, and what our contributors are excited to give them this holiday season.
Our contributor Jennifer Carroll @twinningtheweekend spends her free time taking her toddler twins camping, wakeboarding, hiking, and more. Check out her gift guide for families who love the outdoors!
After all of the work that you put into the holidays, have some fun and dream about what you want this year! We asked our contributor team to share one gift that they’re dreaming about right now. See what they’re asking for this year!

We’ve hosted Thanksgiving for the past seven years (give or take a few years), and in that time we’ve learned many valuable lessons as home cooks and hosts. We’ve tried our fair share of trendy recipes and ways to cook a turkey. We’ve mistimed oven usage and have discovered new family favorites.

I won’t lie: Thanksgiving isn’t my favorite, and after so much togetherness last year, I wanted to try to mix things up a bit on that oh-so-traditional holiday.
