Gifts We Gave, Got, Loved and Sought in 2021

These are the gifts we actually sought and bought over this past year.  I hope this list is helpful to you if you are looking for any gift ideas and inspiration.  I also have a Gift guide tab and Book tab (above) from years past.

 I have included affiliate links, so that when you order something by clicking on my link first (even if you buy other items and not the item listed), I receive a small kickback at no extra cost to you.  Thank you for supporting our family in this way if you are able :)

Also, I always shop online through Rakuten which will send you a check in the mail as your shopping sprees add up.  Really!

  1. I have no idea how you tracked all of this. Well done. I am not in the mood for shopping. I'd like a free pass to only buy the essentials. How do you think that'll go over?

    1. It does take me a lot of time! Thank you for noticing - ha! On each birthday/Easter/Christmas post through the year, I try to link gifts they received and then it's basically a cut and paste job.
