Ho Ho Ho! Happy [almost] Holidays. Santa Publyssity here – ready to spread holiday cheer.
Let me kick this off by explaining that when I was younger, all I cared about was opening presents and getting as many new things as I could (didn’t every kid?). However, as I get older, I find myself more invested in the gift giving process vs. the receiving process. To me, it’s so nice to see the excited look on family and friends faces when you gift them something they love.
I’m sure a lot of you are currently in the same position as me. Are you thinking, “what the heck am I going to get everyone this holiday season?” I’m right there with you. I have to admit, I have yet to purchase anything for anyone, but compiling this list definitely helped me figure out what I’ll be ordering. So since I’ve done the digging for you, I’m hoping your shopping experience can be a seamless one.
I browsed various sites and narrowed down my all time FAVORITE 2017 holiday gifting items. I tried to be really selective about the items I included because I wanted to pick items that I know people will LOVE. So whether you’re referencing this list as a guy trying to figure out what to get for your girlfriend or as a mother trying to figure out what to get your son – there’s something special for everyone. Below, I’ve broken the items out into three categories – women, men and everyone.
I hope this makes your holiday shopping a bit easier!
I promise you, sipping on this delicious pomegranate + rosemary + vodka cocktail will be your favorite activity this winter. Whether you’re entertaining, pregaming or just sitting around the fire, this recipe is one for the books.
4 ounces Purity Vodka
3 ounces pomegranate juice
2 ounces rosemary-brown sugar syrup
2 small rosemary sprigs (for garnish)
~ 20 pomegranate seeds (for garnish)
Fill glass with ice
Place vodka, pomegranate juice and rosemary-brown sugar syrup
Top with seltzer and stir
Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and 10 pomegranate seeds
If you’ve browsed my blog or seen my Instagram feed, you know I’ve got a thing for hats. I just really believe that accessories help elevate any outfit or look. However, a lot of the hats I wear in my posts either are sold out or no longer available. Since I’m always getting so many messages about them, I wanted to create a little collection of my favorite hats for you.
So from berets to newsboy caps to beanies, you’ll have a hat for every occasion. PS. they sell out FAST, so if you see something you like, snag it while you can! I tried to pick items that are under $100 and in most cases $50!
Holiday cheer is in the air and I am feeling giving!!!

One of my favorite holiday traditions is the grab bag gift game that my family plays on Christmas day. There’s about 12-15 of us (including my extended family) and we battle it out to “win” the best gift. I could get into the rules, but I’ll save that for another post. Anyway, the catch is that the gift has to be a gender and age neutral. As such, I’m always picking my brain trying to think of what to get. What can my sister possible like that my 60 year old uncle would ALSO like?!
However, stocking up on gender neutral gifts during the holidays isn’t a bad idea. Need to give your boss something last minute? Going to someone’s house for a holiday party and don’t want to go empty handed? Keep a gender neutral gift on hand to have as an option. See my selects below!
