#1 Holiday Gift: Buffalo Check Sherpa Throw
This holiday gift wins the title for “Most Versatile Gift.” It’s perfect for boys and girls, moms and dads, literally any age. Why? Because we all love a soft, cozy throw. This luxurious Sherpa blanket is cute, functional, and ideal for the hard-t0-please person on your list. Both Jodie’s and my families own this throw. Among all our blankets this is the one that all our children fight over. It is simply the softest, coziest blanket we’ve ever owned.
The darling buffalo check comes in a variety of color combinations, and the style is totally on-trend for all the decorators on your list. At an amazing price point of $14.93 you can get one for everyone.

Here it is in the red and black buffalo check version. We love them both, don’t you?
#2: Home Fragrance Gift Set
Another winning holiday gift idea is home fragrance. Home fragrance is much more easily selected than personal fragrance. Every home can use this. Better Homes & Gardens products sold exclusively at Walmart has gift sets that are both beautiful and a great value. Your main challenge with be choosing which one. Luckily, you can’t go wrong.
The home fragrance sets include a beautiful votive, a reed diffuser, and room spray. My three favorite holiday fragrance sets are “Season of Joy” (pictured above), “Spicy Cinnamon Stick,” and “Fresh Cut Frasier.” You’ll love all of these holiday gift sets, and you can’t you beat the price. While you’re at it don’t forget to select one for yourself.
#3: Christmas Dish
What is better than a homemade treat from your kitchen? Whether you bake something sweet and decadent or cook up your favorite savory recipe, presentation is always key. Why not put it in one of Better Homes & Gardens festive holiday serving dishes? This way you give something that will remind them of you year after year.
Jodie and I aren’t much for cooking (as we’ve confessed once or twice). But when the holidays roll around, we really do love to bake. We are usually watching our waistlines so our favorite reason to bake is when we are gifting it to others. We may sneak a bite or two of course.
These beautiful platters and dishes make the ideal holiday gift that keeps on giving year after year. Reese didn’t want to let this one go. Many of the platters and dishes are available in store. Some are also available online. Click on the dishes below to shop:
#4: Golden Lanterns
As decorators we love to give elements that showcase our style. It is extra meaningful for Jodie and me to give gifts that help us share our love of decorating. We are totally enamored by the beauty and versatility of these gold lanterns from Better Homes & Gardens collection sold exclusively at Walmart.
Their classic style would be at home in virtually any home, from the ultra-modern home to their farmhouse style and everything in between. They sparkle in any decor.
We also love how easy they are to use and decorate. I filled each one with some pinecones and a faux flicker candle. Just tie a festive Christmas bow to the handle and it’s ready to give. Imagine giving this at a party to a holiday hostess. It would be the star of the event.
When we think about holiday gift giving, value and practicality are always big considerations. We love that these lanterns can be used all year long and decorated for each season. They never need to be put away. That’s truly the gift that keeps on giving. Such an incredible value at only $19.94 each. Shop online or in Walmart stores for a large variety of lantern options.
#5 Holiday Gift: Birch Star Hurricane
When I saw this candle holder I was smitten. It looks just like a real birch log. I’m always looking for unique ways to add a little glow to a table or vignette. All on its own I think this makes a great holiday gift. It’s perfect decor for the holiday season, but also can be used all year long. It is all glass on the inside, so it is a very safe way to allow a real candle to burn in the home.
#6 Holiday Gift: Metal & Glass Lanterns
Our final holiday gift idea are these gorgeous metal and glass lanterns. They come in three sizes. Here I have shown the trio, but they can be a darling gift on their own or in any combination. I love their simplicity for any décor.
At their price, $14.66, $11.87 and $8.87, they are a fabulous choice for design and style on a budget. Add pillar candles, faux flicker candles, or votive candles and voila: instant ambiance to any room.

In this season of giving our list can be long. So we need to be sure what we choose is value-priced, versatile, and will be well received. There are a lot of holiday gifts to think about:
- hostess gifts
- neighbor gifts
- charitable donations
- service provider thank you gifts
- mail person
- hair stylist
- whomever you rely upon during the year
- teacher gifts
- friends & family
Putting thought into a gift shows the person you care, even more than the money you spend. Especially in this fast-paced world of ours, it means so much to take the time, select a gift and present it with a word of kindness and gratitude.
Even when a monetary gift is what is expected I like to add a personal, caring touch by presenting the monetary thank you along with a chosen gift. Remember, time and thought means a lot.
We sure hope our Holiday Gift Guide was helpful and that your gift giving is made easier by our ideas.
Happiest of Holidays to you and your families.
With love and gratitude,
