We tried and tried to get our holiday guide up in time for Cyber Monday, but alas, we just could not make it happen. It’s a pretty extensive list and as always, we wanted to make sure we put together the best guide possible. We’ve got gifts for kids, gifts for adults, gifts for moms, gifts for dads and gifts for everyone in between; like panda lovers and people who are fans of Harlow’s baking show.

Allie even made her wish list, which we are calling “The New Adult” holiday wish list.

In addition to Mazzy, Harlow, Jack and Neve’s current wish lists, I also included their lists from last year, because I thought it would be useful to see what the kids wanted at each age. All still valid gift ideas! It’s also worth noting that some items on their wish lists are things they want and some items are things they already have, but people continually ask me where we got them.

And to sweeten my holiday gift guide a bit, I am going to give one person a “Remarkably Average Gift Set” which includes a Mommy Shorts tote, a remarkably average mug and a signed copy of The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting. Just tell me your favorite gift idea in the comments below!

Alright, ready? Here we go…
