The 2022 Holiday Gift Guide For Your Family, Funkle, BFF, White Elephant, & Most Favorite Person Who Already Has It All
We are off! Somehow holiday season arrived, and it is once again time to shop! I bring you the warmest 2022 holiday wishes as I present to you these holiday gift ideas!
Evolution Of A Holiday Gift Guide
I work on my Holiday Gift Guide all year to find the best gift ideas for him, her, mom, dad, uncle, aunt, pet, cousin, etc., etc. I always debate what to call it because I try to mix up the categories and make it fun. So, in theory, it is part 2022 holiday toy guide, corporate gift ideas, and white elephant party guide. But it is also filled with gifts for kids, gifts for sisters, gifts for brothers, and gifts for teachers. However, you could say it is also packed with gifts for bus drivers and gifts for funkles!
Without a doubt, my favorite category is always gifts for someone who has everything or what to get someone who doesn’t want anything. PS – that answer is often an experience that you can’t wrap in a box.
As always, I love finding different and unique gifts, funny gifts, and meaningful gifts for all the people on your list. Consequently, you should make sure the (wo)man in the mirror is on your list too, because s/he works hard.
Naturally, there are some repeats – indicated with an “*”. These special items are so well loved they’re still sitting out on our dining room table bothering my husband.
New This Year – Social Post Lists And Item Links
This year I’ve sprinkled in some social links to items I’ve featured adding a little more to the story. Click all the links! Go crazy! My gift to you is laughter while watching me dance around and be silly.
I hope you walk away thinking this is the best holiday gift guide of 2022. As a blogger, I rely on my readers to spread the word about my posts.

Stacey Gish Wallenstein created The Mint Chip Mama blog in 2013 to share her love and passion for giving children meaningful life experiences and helping moms like her navigate the challenges and benefits of raising children in the New York metropolitan area.
Before becoming a full-time mom in 2010, Stacey spent the better part of the preceding decade as a high-end customer relationship management (CRM) professional for some of the most well-known brands in the hotel, luxury, fashion, and beauty industries, such as Harrah’s Entertainment, Chanel and Christian Dior, Inc. She managed customer loyalty programs for thousands of clients around the country and created social media strategies for a span of industries including healthcare services, restaurants, consumer packaged goods, specialty foods, local attractions and retail locations.
After 13 wonderful years in Manhattan (the last three of which spent as a city mom), Stacey and her husband moved to Long Island in 2014, where they now reside with their three children (13, 9, and 7). There, she is a founding member of her local Parenting Center, which provides classes and coordinates events designed to educate and inform parents while fostering an environment of support and friendship within the community.
A graduate of the University of Michigan, Stacey has been active in the New York area alumni organization for nearly twenty years, serving as a board member on the school’s University of Michigan Alumni Club of New York City. She also holds a Masters in Psychology from The New School in New York City.
