Mom, Dad, Grandparents & Spouse, the people on your list that you probably know better than anyone, but you struggle with what to buy for them. Buying for adults is hard because, for the most part, when an adult feels they need something, they purchase it. We don't spend weeks thinking of things we "need" or "want" and really can't think of anything when people ask. 

Some say to avoid getting scarves, candles and ties -- for me personally, I love candles...I'll take all the candles. 

I thought I share some gift ideas with you that could be a nice surprise & delight for the adults on your list. 

1. JavaSok: Now, these cool things are great for ANYONE on your list. They have a ton of designs and types, so you can use it on your coffee mug or have it handy when you buy coffee at your favorite coffee shop. I recommend buying 1-2 and a gift card to their favorite coffee shop. Put the gift card in an empty mug and add the JavaSok on the outside! Super cute gift! I love mine & think this also makes for a good co-worker or friend gift exchange gift! 

2. Tiered Fruit Holder: While yes can be used to hold fruit, it could easily be turned into a holder for potatoes and onions or add some cupcakes in wrappers, and you have a nice display. This type of product can get used throughout the entire year, and I think is something people don't tend to buy for themselves, but always would like to have one around. 

3. MadeTerra Bowl: Do you remember at what age you started getting excited about quality home decor? Adults love a good decorative or serving bowl -- I personally have this one, and not only does it match my kitchen decor, but it is also perfect for rolls or fruit for serving dinner. 

4. AFORÉ Beard Oil: Now, I know as a lady, I love beauty products - love trying new face creams, lipsticks and perfumes, so I try to spoil my husband and get him products. One of the best items to get is a good beard oil - this one, in particular, smells really nice and softens the beard pretty quickly. 

5. Colonel Popper: USE ANY POPCORN KERNELS - We used this last night for a Grinch movie watch party, and it was fun having the girls help make the popcorn! One added the kernels & the other mixed in the butter! Bring the theater home and use any corn kernels or popcorn oil. BPA Free Silicone Microwave Popcorn Popper makes up to 14 cups of popcorn, plenty for your kids and family. Gone are the days of buying unhealthy microwave popcorn bags with harmful chemicals.  Kids and adults can make popcorn their own way at a fraction of the cost. (USE CODE: LOVEPOPCORN for 10% off)  

6. Blister Blocker: I personally have one in my purse, at home, and my desk at work. These products are great for the whole family, but since little ones can’t tell mom & dad that their feet hurt because of their shoes, prep their feet with blister blocker before putting them in new shoes! (BUY NOW) - Special discount if you sign up for their mailing list. 

7. Solemates Shoe Deodorizer: My husband is a coach, and he is used to all the smells of a locker room! This shoe deodorizer is perfect for the whole family. I try to spray our shoes' soles once a week, and it just eliminates any odors, especially for leather and tennis shoes. If you are grabbing a few items from Solemates, I recommend the weather protector spray & leather salve. 

8. Carthage: Quality bakeware is so important. Baking and the holidays go hand in hand! Carthage.Co brings exquisite, ethically-sourced pottery made by Tunisian artisans directly to your table. There’s no shipping of raw materials to factories to make the same mainstream product over and over again. In fact, Carthage.Co works as a direct to consumer channel, so you get the same high-end products at a fraction of a retail store’s priceCarthage products not only are beautiful but very well-made. I've been using mine for weekend Quiches, and not only are they the perfect size for a family of 4, but easy to clean. Buy now.
