Thanks to all of the participating brands for making this Annual Mom of the Year One-Stop-Shop Christmas Gift Guide possible by sending my family items for review! I genuinely love each item listed here (or I wouldn’t share it!) and I hope checking out this list makes your holiday shopping so much easier!
Happy Christmas season, friends! I’m such a nut for all things Christmas, and while I know it’s not quite Thanksgiving yet, I am giving myself a pass to celebrate a bit early since Turkey Day is so late this year. So break out the holly and mistletoe (but mostly the Hallmark Channel Christmas movies!) because it’s time to get our holiday shop (and score big in the giveaway at the end!) on with The Annual Mom of the Year One-Stop-Shop Christmas Gift Guide!
The Annual Mom of the Year One-Stop-Shop Christmas Gift Guide
Listen, I know too, too well what it’s like to be overwhelmed come this time of year. You’ve got crazy happenings like holiday concerts, trees tipping over and cookie baking on the books, not to mention things like lunch-packing and homework having the audacity to still continue during this merriest time of the year! Throw in the task of gift buying and…well, it’s enough to bring even the best of us moms down.
So…it’s time to play it smart. First of all, fire up that internet and plug in the laptop, we’re getting our shop on without leaving the house. Get ready to clean up your shopping list in minutes with this handy-dandy one-stop-shop Christmas gift guide!
For the grown-ups on your list:
I can’t say how much pretty jewelry can do wonders for the heart. I have recently fallen for the brand AUrate, and if you check out their cool mission, you’ll be a goner too: “We focus on what matters: durable materials built for everyday wear, transparent pricing as friendly as your neighbor’s dog, sustainable production to offset our carbon footprint, and tangible giving for a sparkling conscience.” There are so many gorgeous items to crush on, but I’m especially a goner for their earrings line.
Steeped Coffee is a brilliant gift for the coffee-lover on your list! Committed to premium coffee, convenience, and environmental stewardship in equal measure, and what sets Steeped Coffee apart is its a proprietary brewing method that doesn’t require machines or brewing equipment, made much like tea. The coffee comes in single-serve bags that are nitro-sealed to ensure absolute freshness. It’s a uniquely “unplugged” coffee experience; all it takes to brew a perfect cup is hot water and a few minutes!
GIVEAWAY ALERT: Enter the giveaway below, as a 30 pack lineup of all the Steeped Coffee roasts is up for grabs!

Have a STEM-minded child who loves to build and explore? Check out Tinkering Labs! The best-selling Electric Motors Catalyst includes 50+ high-quality parts that are made to last.

I can’t say how excited I am to gift my STEM-minded son Gravitrax on Christmas morning (shhh! Don’t tell him!). He told me he was interested in Gravitrax, so I looked it up and was sold!
GraviTrax is an innovative marble run and STEM toy for ages 8-99 (adults will love this too!).

Led by a commitment to design, innovation and eco-responsibility, Vapur created the Anti-Bottle, a reusable water bottle designed to stand when full and can be rolled, folded or flattened when empty, making it easy to use and carry on any adventure. Unlike bulky, rigid bottles, the portable Anti-Bottle can be easily tucked away, conveniently fitting into pockets, purses and packs. If your family stashes piles of reusable water bottles like we do, you understand why this is truly a genius stocking stuffer for the whole family–so convenient to use and store!
About 87% lighter than typical rigid bottles, the slim, flexible Anti-Bottle only packs water weight. It also uses less energy to make and transport than rigid bottles, so not only is the Anti-Bottle light on your load, its environmental impact is also pretty “lite.” Vapur now has multiple product lines of Anti-Bottles, ranging from the highly-technical SuperCap to the After Hours line for spirits and wine.
