  8. Jen,

    I love following your blog posts and watching all your videos! Thanks for all that you share! I love your gift guides so much! Merry Christmas!

  9. Always such great choices! I bought myself the eyeglass case from the last video and the Clarasonic looks tempting this time. Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. Jen, thank you so much for the great suggestions, I actually got some great ideas from this video!!! I admire your dedication to your channel, you are natural and very talented. Thx again

  11. Jen,

    Thank you for taking the time to make these lists and videos each year. I always enjoy them and look forward to them. Honestly, the biggest things on my wish list this year aren’t things, not because I don’t enjoy things, I do! I guess with being ill I would wish for better health, but also being away from my kitty for almost three weeks now has made me miss him something fierce, and I wish to go home to him. I know you understand because I see how you love Winnie! And of course with all the violence in the world lately I truly mean it when I say I wish for peace in our world.

    Thanks for being such a light in a sometimes dismal world, you are always upbeat, happy and kind. I wish you such a happy holiday season with your whole family and all the best with the coming birth of baby girl Ross!

    Much love,

  12. Great picks Jen. I love these ideas. Thank you for all the time and energy you put into every video and blog post. You are so generous in so many ways. Blessings to you and your family.

  13. I can’t get enough of your blog, videos etc… And you are so sweet to share such wonderful gifts, that most of us couldn’t purchase for ourselves. Thank you Jen for being you!

  14. This is such an exciting time of year. Thank you, for yet another set of wonderful gift ideas! I have been watching last years Holiday videos, and have been enjoying them as much as I did the first time!

  15. I have been re-watching previous years of your gift guides to get the juices flowing and this is by far the best so far! Loved it! Thank you

  16. Love all your choices! Thank you for sharing! I have purchased one or two of your selections as a Christmas gift for a family member in the past. A few of the gifts on my gift list are jewelry choices this year. They are the Tiffany rose gold pieces and the rose gold pieces from Kendra Scott, especially the Kyocera Opal, which is lovely. The Black Pearl pieces from Kendra Scott are another great selection. For the bakers in the family, a french pastry marble block and rolling pin are a great gift from Crate and Barrel. Drones are a huge hit with the men this year! Lastly, I usually purchase Lush sets for the women, but this year chose to purchase Young Living’s Mud and Dead Sea products from their Convention line (which I believe is now out of stock). All of these are in the same price range as the gifts you mentioned, except for the drones, depending on the one chosen. Again, thanks for sharing your choices!

  17. Jen, Love your suggestions. I am so craving a Williams and Sonoma in Denmark. I LOVE their Peppermint White Chocolate Hot Chocolate!!! We buy gifts and treats for ourselves every time we make it to one of their stores! The tinned hot chocolate flakes are a very versatile and thoughtful gift buy. You are awesome!

  18. great video as always. I live in Kentucky so we make Kentucky mules not Moscow, we use Kentucky bourbon. You should get Don to try it, I usually use a good bourbon like 12 year old weller, woodford, beam black, or buffalo trace. Its a lot better with the bourbon.

  19. Thanks for all the GREAT gift ideas!! Happy Holidays to you and your family. Can’t wait to meet the baby!! Soooo excited!!!

  20. Hi Jen! I just wanted to leave a quick note to say “thank you” for being so devoted to growing and maintaining such a class act of an online presence! I’ve been “following you” (that sounds so creepy, lol) for quite some time now and have really appreciated watching you overcome and rise above the “mean girl” mentality that gets directed at you. Anyone who watches you can see that you have such a giving heart and genuine pride in your content. Keep being you! The VAST majority of us appreciate your hard work! 🙂

  21. Hi Jen! What a generous giveaway! You are so kind to your viewers…you make us feel special and I think that is a very difficult thing to accomplish in your line of work. Don’t get me wrong- I know lots of people out there are entertaining, informational and just plain fun to watch or read but (on top of those things) you have a unique way of making us feel like close friends. ((hugs))

  22. Your giveaways floor me Jen! You are so generous and giving to your community! Its amazing!

    Love your splurgy pics, especially the heart spoons! I actually saw a similar design the other day and was so tempted to buy them, I love the whimsy and romance of them, so cute! Every cup of tea would look more magical stirred with one of those!

  23. Hi Jen,

    I stumbled onto your blog a couple of months ago and have to say I am hooked. You seem like a very sweet, down to earth person. I enjoy your videos and posts – they are refreshing. Thank you for being so generous! Hope you have a great holiday!

  24. Hi Jen,
    Great gift ideas, this year we are foregoing gifts and doing a family vacation at Disney World, all 10 of us our kids and grandkids, it will be a very unconventional Christmas but I am so looking forward to it as our whole family is as well. We will be making memories and that is the greatest gift of all. LOL Well there be some gifts for the grandchildren cause after all that’s who we get the biggest kick out of watching opening them, I have already booked in June the bippity boppity boutique for my grandson (The Princess package) and my grandson ( The Knight Package) they have to be 3 years old for that and that’s why we waited this year to do this, so keep that in mind for when baby girl is old enough to do it since you guys love Disney as well. Happy Holidays!!

  25. Hi Jen, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your amazing generosity. I am very grateful for you and all of the tips that you share. I wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas!

  26. A lovely collection of gifts – thanks for sharing. I think the Tiffany items are beautiful. The inspiration is great to get me thinking for my list. Looking forward to spoiling family and friends. Hooray! x
