Note: None of the above products were sponsored, and companies are not able to purchase spots on my holiday gift guides. These are all items that I genuine think would make awesome gifts for those you love (or yourself!). Affiliate links are included, which don’t affect purchase price but enable me to earn a small kickback. I use these commissions towards the cost of keeping the blog running and doing its thang.

    I snagged some of the UA recovery sleepwear for Christmas on black Friday. I’m excited to open it on Christmas 🙂 Also, we love our hydroflasks! I keep mine at work to carry around to meetings and the gym.

    Oh my! Chocolate Dumbbells? So fun. Have you purchased many food items from Etsy? I never had but I’m always tempted.
