The Mommy Shorts Holiday Gift Guide is here! Just in time for Hanukkah. More than enough time for Christmas. It’s got 87 gift ideas for kids and adults, boys and girls, men and women. Except, instead of coming up with gift ideas for random people I may or may not know like I usually do, this year, I decided to be a little more tactical about it.

I created a gift guide based on the people I actually have to shop for! I’ve got wish lists for Mazzy, Harlow, Mike, Jack and Neve. Or at least a few things on their wish lists, a few things I suspect that they would want, and a few things they already have that I thought you should know about. I also included a wish list for my friend’s son Charlie and a wish list for myself. And, just for my fellow RAPs (that’s the Remarkably Average Parents in my facebook group), I made a special list just for you too.

So, hopefully this guide will give you lots of ideas for the people in your own life, but really, it’s purpose is to help me get my own holiday shopping done. It’s called multi-tasking.

FYI, Mazzy is planning on telling Santa that she wants a real unicorn for Christmas. Not sure if this is a result of extreme belief or a test from a skeptic. In either case, she’s Jewish, so she maybe Santa disappointing her is not the worst thing in the world. Can’t wait to see what he comes up with!
