If you're a go getter you may have already started your holiday shopping! Or maybe holiday shopping stresses you out. Not only do I last minute shop, but I sometimes have a hard time trying to find something for everyone. If you feel like you're not the best gift giver and need a little help, I got you!

Here's a list of 5 gifts that are thoughtful and within a decent price range...

A Homemade Recipe

Everyone loves a good home cooked meal. Especially during the holidays! Yeah, recipes from the internet are great but there's nothing better than getting the recipe of a home cooked meal you love. My Mom makes these delicious polish meatballs every Christmas and I was ecstatic when she gave me the recipe so I could flex my skills at parties.

Socks

When I was younger, I always took getting socks for granted. But they're the perfect Christmas gift! Especially if you find some really cool socks with French bulldogs riding a skateboard or avocado's with sunglasses. My family and I do a sock themed white elephant every year and it's always a fun time.

Pour-Over Coffee

Michigan winters get pretty cold. A nice warm cup of coffee can help with that! Pour-over ceramic cones are a great gift. You can get them on Amazon for pretty cheap too! Pair it with their favorite coffee or buy a new one for them to try.

Wine

What's the holidays without a bottle of wine? You don't have to go drop a bunch of money on a bottle of wine either. Both of my favorite wines are under $15. If your friend, family member or co-worker is a fan of red wine, I suggest the cabernet from Josh Cellars. If they're more into whites, check out the sweet harvest riesling from Grand Traverse. Or go local and grab something from your favorite winery in Lansing! Stop by The Port or Cork & Bottle Winery.

Gloves

Obviously, we don't live in Florida where it's warm all year round. Everyone could use a nice warm pair of gloves this holiday season because grabbing a cold steering wheel is the worst. Maybe I'm alone on this, but I somehow manage to lose one of my gloves every year. The more gloves the merrier!
