Welcome to The Mint Chip Mama‘s 2020 Holiday Gift Guide!
Well – it has been one heck of a year to say the least. The holiday season is quickly approaching, and we need to give ourselves gifts this year. We cannot forget ourselves. It has been hard. It has been REALLY hard. So, what does that mean for a Holiday Gift Guide? Sorry – it is a little deeper than usual. But we are not living in a world of light and fluffy right now. It means be generous with YOU. In time, kindness, and physical presence and presents.
Does it mean buying whatever is on sale (that you do not need) on Amazon at midnight – in your underpants – on your couch – because it makes you feel good? DO IT. Does it mean splurging on a gift for someone who has had a tough year? DO IT. Does it mean upping your kid’s teachers holiday gifts A LOT – OH BOY, YES!
Spread the Good – It’s Free!
Spread the good. Give the gift. Remember to make someone smile this holiday season. Have no budget? Print out this Holiday Gift Guide, flip it over, fold it into a card, and write a personal note to a front line worker thanking them for giving 4500% this year.
With that said, it is my annual joy to bring you The Mint Chip Mama’s Holiday Gift Guide. I love finding the best gifts and toys – also the weird and quirky – and bringing them to you. I love finding things off the beaten path that will make you laugh. P.S. Your gift to me can be to follow me on my Blog, Facebook, Pinterest & Instagram pages (mwah).
So, without further ado, here are some of my favorites from this year, some repeat items (indicated with an “*”), and some unique ones to give to the adult who has everything.
