Stephanie Says… Christmas Gift Ideas for Everyone

Stephanie Says… Christmas Gift Ideas for Everyone

It is that time of year again!  Black Friday and Cyber Monday has come and gone but you still don’t know what to get the person who has everything.  Well look no further, I’ve got everyone covered!

Charlie here, I saw this post lined up from Steph and couldn’t help but add a few thoughts and comments! 

Things the whole family can enjoy:

Board Games! They are reappearing into the family crazy chaos and bringing everyone together.  That is what my crazy family did over Thanksgiving.  It was really awesome to have everyone around the table, laughing, playing against each other, eating, drinking; now I cannot wait for next year! Here are some updated games that are lively and really get the whole family involved!

cards against humanity Cards Against Humanity: *(Can only be bought online)* Perhaps best suited for the older members of the family… this does come in a British and American version. Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you’ve played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.  The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card.

Battle of the Sexes: When it comes to the opposite sex, everyone’s an expert, right? Put your knowledge to the test with Battle of the Sexes, a lively board game that’s the ultimate test of he said/she said. Teams answer challenging questions to determine the superiority of either mighty males or fantastic females.

ticket to ride gameApples to Apples: The object of the game is to win the most rounds by playing a “red apple” card (which generally features a noun) from one’s hand to best “match” that round’s communal “green apple” card (which contains an adjective) as chosen by that round’s judging player.

Ticket to Ride: Celebrate Phileas Fogg’s notorious wager to travel “around the world in 80 days” with the Ticket to Ride board game. The goal of this cross-country train adventure game is to see the most cities in North America in just seven days. Players collect train cards that enable them to claim railway routes connecting cities throughout North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who can fulfill their Destination Tickets by connecting two distant cities, and to the player who builds the longest continuous railway.

For more board game ideas check out Geek and Sundry’s Tabletop hosted by Wil Wheaton on Youtube!

I am a total tabletop addict after discovering the show two years ago, it opened my eyes to a whole world of fun games which have led to hours of fun (and frustration) with friends and family. Congratz to Wil and the G&S team on such a successful fan funding scheme for Season Three which just started last week – already want to add Forbidden Desert to my game collection.

For Ladies:

mac extra dimension brush kitWith the Kardashian’s trying to take over the globe and everyone trying to be like them their beauty tricks of contouring have really hit the beauty industry hard.  Everyone is trying to get their makeup just like Kim K.  For perfect execution, every girl needs a good set of makeup brushes!  There are a lot of cheap, crappy brushes, you do not need to go crazy and get the $50 brush but do not get the $5 one either.  Get some middle of the road that is going to last you a decent amount of time.  Don’t forget to take care of them and clean them.  They will last you longer!

Check out this starter brush set from Ulta.  You get 5 brushes for $98.00.

Here is M.A.C’s basic brush kit for $49.50 which includes 5 brushes.

For more accurate application check out M.A.C’s Advance Brush Kit or Extra Dimension Brush Kit (pictured).

Beauty Guru and Star Youtuber Jaclyn Hill highly recommends brushes by Morphie and has a discount code- why not check out some of her makeup tutorials for ideas? For a super purse friendly option I personally love the white handled brushes that H&M are selling, these would make super cute extra stocking fillers for the lovely ladies in your life. 


Every lady needs a durable, solid, reliable handbag.  With the perfect bag (or shoes) any woman can conquer the world!  Here are some of my personal favorites.

Marc Jacobs: Hobo $438.00

MJ Hobo Bag

Rebecca Minkoff: Jules Satchel $375.00

Rebecca Minkoff

Michael Kors: Frankie Drawstring Leather Shoulder Bag $229.60

MK Bag



If all else fails, a gift card to their favorite store always comes in handy.  Or a high-quality sent candle.

For Guys:

What guy doesn’t like alcohol? So why not doing a DIY beer/wine basket or do a beer or wine month club?!  I did that last year for my step-dad and he loved it!

A cute stocking stuffer idea is gift cards to his favorite places!

Bake them their favorite cake! That is what I am doing for my dad this year.  I know he would appreciate it more that I took the time and effort to make him something rather than buying him another lame polo.

shavingMake fun (and or) sexy coupons good for the year. For example: Favorite home cooked meal, going out to dinner at his favorite place, a back rub, etc.

The art of shaving is becoming extremely popular in the man’s world.  Check out “The Art of Shaving” for different and unique products to keep your man trimmed.  Their starter kit looks reasonable for $25.00!


As always thank you for reading Stephanie Says.  Enjoy shopping!!
