  4. SELF-WATERING LAVENDER GROW KIT // Grow fresh lavender right on your countertop. This would be an excellent gift for friends and family who enjoy gardening.
  5. WIRELESS SMART PHONE PRINTER // Want to print photos straight from your phone? This printer produces tiny little photos.
  6. FLOWER POT BREAD MAKING KIT // Bread making anyone? This kit looks like a lot of fun.
  7. STRATHMORE SKETCH PAD // My favorite sketch pad.
  8. PHOTOSHOP CLASSROOM BOOK // I get a lot of questions about Photoshop. If you’re new to Adobe or PSD, check out this classroom book.
  9. NIKON SLR // I’ve been shooting with a Nikon SLR since I took my first photography class in art school. This would be a fantastic gift for the serious photographers.
  10. TAPER CANDLES // Aren’t these taper candles unique? I like the interesting shape and green color.
  11. BLIND CONTOUR ARTWORK // Looking to gift or install art in your home? This blind contour drawing is one of my favorites in our shop. It comes professionally framed.
  12. MOUNTAIN PASS COCKTAIL KIT // I’m intrigued by this cocktail in a jar!
  13. SHERWIN-WILLIAMS FAN DECK // For the design lovers in your life, gift them a paint swatch fan deck… having all of those colors at your fingertips is pretty incredible.
  14. PAINT BRUSH SET // There is nothing better than a fresh set of brushes to get creative with.
  15. MANFROTTO TRIPOD // This is my favorite tripod. It’s pricey, but the best. It’s stable, easy to use, and indestructible.

Renovating & Home Improvement
  1. RETRACTABLE PEN HOLDER // Put either a pen, pencil, or marker in it. Clip it to your shirt. You will never have to search for your marking device ever again while working on projects!
  2. HEAVY DUTY EXTENSION CORD //If you’re going to have just one extension cord, make sure it is a heavy-rated one with a single plug-in. Power tools require more power and a standard home extension cord will not suffice. Get a 25 ft., 12-gauge, single-end cord and you’ll be set!
  3. FINISHING NAILER // Perfect for arts & crafts, or installing base, crown, and casing- an assortment of all gauges of air nailers is a must. Get a 16ga., 18ga., and a 23ga. nailer and you will be able to join small intricate wall mouldings or large bulky baseboard.
  4. BLUETOOTH EAR PROTECTION HEADPHONES // These are perfect for loud projects, snow blowing, lawn mowing, and other noisy home improvement tasks.
  5. IMPACT DRIVER // This is probably our most used tool. Emmett always has this in his hand.
  6. MITER SAW // Whether you’re building something small or installing millwork, this saw is a must. We’ve used it for every single renovation project we’ve tackled.
  7. AIR COMPRESSOR // We use this small air compressor for running nail guns, including the framing nailer. However, we also use it around the house- putting air in our vehicle tires, etc.
  8. OSCILLATING TOOL // This is another tool that sees a lot of use. It’s great for demo, cutting, and is very versatile!
  9. LASER MEASURE // Once you have one of these, you won’t want to use your old tape measure ever again. It’s so quick and easy.
  10. CORDLESS SCREW DRIVER // This is the perfect gift for any homeowner!
  11. GORILLA HOOKS // No more hammer, nails, or screws. Basically everything you see hanging on the walls in our home is hung with these nifty little guys. They used to be called “hercules hooks” but have since rebranded. I believe they also started as an “As Seen on TV” thing. Hah! Emmett and I both swear by these hooks. They hold a lot of weight, are easy to install, and you don’t have to worry about your art or mirrors crashing to the ground (or finding studs).
  12. MITER CLAMP SET // Miter clamps allow you to put glue on the two pieces clamp them together and then finish with a nail or two. Your miters will be next level, but more importantly they will stay together until the end of time.
  13. WET / DRY SHOP VAC // You know me… I clean. I clean a lot. I can’t stand living amongst the chaos of a construction zone (ugh drywall dust). I’m always following Emmett around with the shop vac.
  14. NAIL SET AND COUNTER PUNCH // This spring nail set easily and precisely sets your proud nail, damaging as little of the surrounding area as possible.
  15. DEWALT COMBO KIT // This tool set includes an impact driver, a drill, circular saw, and reciprocating saw. A drill allows you to attach different drill bits, a circular saw can rip plywood and other sheet goods, and the reciprocating saw is our demo tool of choice.
  16. STEP LADDER // I’m 5’6″… not the tallest. Our step stool is too short for me to reach the ceiling or trim. That’s a problem because I do all of the painting around here. Rather than lugging out the big, heavy ladder, this step ladder has an extra step that allows me to finally reach higher. It’s lightweight, foldable, and compact. I have yet to fall off of it (knocking on wood), so that’s a win! Would recommend.
  17. PLASTIC SAW HORSES // Use these for a temporary work bench, painting stands, and pretty much anything else to keep you from crawling around on the ground.
  18. LASER LEVEL // I hate math. I love the convenience of setting up a laser level and knowing exactly where to lay tile, hang art, install trim, etc. It doesn’t get easier. With a single click (and zero measuring) you have a perfectly accurate line to start your project with confidence.

That concludes my annual holiday gift guide! If you enjoyed it- please feel free to share… I would appreciate it so much! I hope it’s helpful and gets your wheels turning. It will be available on the homepage of my blog throughout the duration of the holiday season for easy reference. You can find more of my holiday, design, decor, and gifting ideas (including sales & promo codes) on my LTK page, as well as my Amazon storefront. I also wanted to thank all of you who have supported my small business over the years- especially our Tuesday Made shop. It truly means the world to me! The shop has brought me so much happiness & joy- we’re hopeful for another wonderful holiday season ahead. I’ve got lots of exciting things to come, but it’s all thanks to you. Happy holidays, friends! Here’s to the start of a beautiful season. -Sarah

    Good morning Sarah! We’re you able to work on the guest bedroom this past weekend? It’s going to be so pretty.
    Thanks so much for these lists 😍It will take me all day to get through 😜 I’m in super Holiday spirit shopping mode. I started this past weekend on your Amazon storefront as I couldn’t access it from Canada.
    The electric rechargeable lighter is a must have, so cool 👍 I love the ribbed marble dish I ordered from your shop, it’s so beautiful ❤️ So many lists, my goodness it must have taken so much time. It will be super helpful for me Sarah, I do all shopping online in the past few years. It doesn’t make sense to be running around everywhere, so much energy and time wasted. It’s super easy to shop this way. Thanks again and have an amazing Monday!

      Hi Colleen! I got zero accomplished on the guest bedroom. I always underestimate just how long gift guides take to finish. Each collage takes me just over an hour, and I completed 22 of them over the weekend. Whew! I was basically on my computer the entire weekend. Womp womp! Between that and packing orders for Tuesday Made, sadly the guest room took the back burner. I am excited to dive in this week though. I love that you’re in the shopping mode and are knocking things out early. It’s nice that you’re able to access Amazon while you’re in FL! I’m with you in regards to online shopping… sometimes it’s the easiest way to do it. No waiting in line, it saves time, and you’re able to ship items to recipients that don’t live nearby. For us, that’s a must since we don’t live near our family. I hope you have an amazing week! xo

          I’m so happy they’re helpful and you’re enjoying them, Emily! Each one takes me a little over an hour, but they’re so fun to curate… it’s one of my favorite holiday traditions. Happy holidays :)

    Good morning! Phew. As always, your comprehensive and thoughtful gift guides are a delight! I love the categories and never fail to find items I didn’t know I needed. Of course, what I added to my cart was dog treats. We’re constantly working with our sweet anxious Jason, so I like to find different varieties. I’m also very intrigued by that beast blender. I can’t bring myself to pay for a Vitamix, but a strong blender would be SO useful for vegan cooking. Speaking of food, I definitely thought the chocolate bar puzzle was a chocolate bar…cut into puzzle pieces! Ha. Now I need to see if that actually exists somewhere. And just as I was silently lamenting a lack of vegan chocolates, I saw the Ritual bar! I know I can bank on your chocolate recommendations! Such a wonderful and exhaustive selection of unique and sure-to-be-appreciated gifts. Thanks for all of your hard work on these! Cheers to a new week and the festive season! 💜

      Thank you, Peggi! They are so much fun to curate. Cash & Cros LOVE those dog treats (and they come from a women-owned business). They’re one of the healthier training treats. Crosby has that same personality… sweet & anxious. He still hasn’t recovered from seeing those spooky Halloween decorations in our yard, poor guy. Those vegan Ritual chocolate bars are delicious! Let me know what you think if you give them a try this year. Cheers to a new week and the festive season ahead :) xo

    Your gift guides are always the most thorough and fun to peruse! I made it through all of them in one go this time, and I have so many great ideas for the tough people to shop for! Thank you for taking the time, effort and energy to put together such thoughtful guides. It’s definitely going to make shopping easier! I started the shopping this weekend and for some reason, the season feels more exciting this year than it has the past few. Now here’s to hoping I can make steady progress on the front room and have it somewhat presentable by Thanksgiving! How was your weekend? I hope you have a wonderful start to the week.

    So many good gift ideas! Sarah, you are the queen of thoughtful gifting! Several times I have gone back into your gift guides throughout the year to get an idea for my husband, friends, etc. I will have lots to explore tomorrow while in the airport and the many hours of driving over the next week. Thank you for all the work and making it easy for us to click, find and buy something.
    Hope your day is a good one! I look forward to catching up after our return in 2 weeks. We are excited to see our daughter in her element tomorrow at the Tryon International Equestrian Show. She is loving the experience! I may be just a little excited to see Graceland on our way home!!!! Have a great week friends!
