The Only Holiday Gift Guide You Need in 2021

It’s here! The 2021 Mommy Shorts Holiday Gift Guide! I got it together early this year because Hanukkah is starting at the end of November(!) and I keep reading all this concerning stuff about the supply chain that makes me think we all need to do our online shopping STAT.

After the crazy success of last year’s guide, I was like— how the hell am I going to top that??? So, I did the same thing I did last year— I built off the previous year’s guide instead of starting from scratch. We added 18 new categories in total, really focusing on building out the big kid categories since they are the hardest. (You guys with toddlers can get your kids pretty much anything and they will be happy!)

Since the guide is long, let me break it down.

At the top, I put the hottest new toys this year. This includes a lot of the items you guys listed when I asked what’s on the top of your kid’s wishlists on Instagram. I also included a listing for a tablet that comes loaded with Google Kids Space, who is a partner of mine this year. The 8″ onn. Kids Tablet is usually $99 but is on sale for $59 from November 10-14th. It also comes with a case! Their inclusion in this gift guide is sponsored, but I genuinely think it’s a great product and a great deal, especially if you want your kid’s online access to be limited to age appropriate content.

Next up, I added new wishlists for Mazzy, Harlow, Jack and Neve. Then I included all their lists from previous years, broken down by age.

After that, we’ve got kid categories by interest starting with all the new listings. This includes new categories like gifts for amateur gamers, theater kids, anime lovers, wizards in training, tiktok addicts, comic book fans, puzzle lovers, and kids who need to get off the couch.

Then, we’ve got the adult categories. One new category I want to call out is the family game category, because it includes all of my family’s absolute favorites. Since the pandemic, we have spent more time playing games than ever and know what we are talking about! I also added another grandparent category, since everyone said they wanted more options for their hard-to-shop-for moms and dads.

Lastly, I checked every link on the old categories to make sure they are all still live and substituted when necessary.

Alright. That’s it. GET SHOPPING!!!
