We are a part of the 12 Days of Holiday Blog Hop where 50 bloggers are coming together to give you amazing Christmas ideas and some beautiful inspiration for your 2019 Christmas season.

The other fun thing is that there is a link-up at the end of each of the posts where you can link-up your own great ideas! I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with! I still need a few ideas for gifts for some hard to buy for people!
So to start off the 12 days, we start with a Gift Guide Round-up. Now, I know there are a lot of different kinds of people you have to give gifts to so I will have a couple different gifts for each of the following groups of people: Gardener, Techie, Animal Lover, Baker, and Decorator. So read along, take some notes, and see what you think!
Also, all of these will be linked to Amazon. If you click on the link, it will take you to the product where you can purchase it. And for each purchase, we will get a small portion of it back to us with no extra cost to you. So enjoy!
The first thing I want to share is the awesome gardening set. This set come with 20 different pieces including tools, gloves, identification tags, a spray bottle, and a tool organizer. All of these are super nifty for if you have either a large vegetable garden or a small succulent garden. All in all, this would be awesome for anyone who has a garden!

The second item is this super cool 4 Tier Mini Green House. I would love to have this for my apartment because it would add so much space for my succulents. This is the perfect gift for someone who enjoys gardening but doesn’t have that much space. The racks are removable which means you can put larger plants on the shelves as well.

I have decided that this first item is on my Christmas list. This backpack not only features a ton of pockets (because who doesn’t like pockets), but it also features a lock, a headphone jack, and a phone charging cable port. This backpack can fit a laptop and a ton of other items. And, it even has a strap that can attach to your suitcase handle so everything is easy to carry around. How cool is this single backpack?!

The second thing I have included is a Ring Doorbell. Now, I know that the Ring isn’t a new item but it is something that every techie would love to have. I know my parents love having their Ring so they can see who is at their door. But these are amazing to have at your door to make sure that nothing bad is happening at your door. Safety is always important, don’t you think!

We are animal lovers around here and I can confirm that it can be difficult to find something cute to give for Christmas. So I am here to rescue you! The first item I found are these adorable kitchen towels. Now, they come in multiple different designs so you can pick towels for cat or dog lovers. Some are black and white while others have color on them. They are the perfect for someone who loves their pet!

The second item I wanted to show off was this adorable rose gold heart necklace. The necklace features two small pendants, one rose gold heart and one silver paw print. This is such a small dainty piece of jewelry that anyone would love. It would be such a sweet gift for someone who loves their pets!

I really enjoy baking and I have gotten a lot of baking things from friends and family, but there can never be enough baking items. So here is a group of 214 (!) baking items that would be perfect for any baker! You get pans, spatulas, piping tips, decorating tools, and much much more. This is not only perfect for a seasoned baker, but it’s also great for someone who is just starting off and needs a lot of supplies. And, it’s not crazy expensive either! How fun would this be to wrap and watch someone open?!

What baker doesn’t need a cute apron to bake in? Now, I’m not saying this is the only apron you should buy, but this one is adorable with the little cupcakes all over it. HOW CUTE IS THAT!! You don’t have to pick the cupcake apron, you can pick others that are cute, but this one is just an idea. Who knows what you could find!

The first item I want to show off is this soft and fuzzy pompom edged throw blanket. This blanket comes in multiple different colors and is super cute. I LOVE the mustard yellow color, but it does come in some neutral colors which is great for any kind of decorator. This is something that I would buy for myself and for my mom (yes there is a pink and a blue version of the blanket).

Who doesn’t like a nice fuzzy pillow? Though it can be inconvenient to store 100 regular pillows, it isn’t as inconvenient to store 100 pillow covers! And these soft and fuzzy pillow covers would be perfect to add to your pillow cover collection. They come in a couple different colors, but there are hundreds of options of pillow covers on Amazon. The possibilities are endless!
