Christmas is in 35 days. Can you believe that? If you're like me and a master of procrastination when it comes to shopping, now's the time to start getting your act together. To give you a helping hand, we'll be putting together gift guides for the next few Fridays. Whether you're shopping for friends, family, colleagues or just plain old difficult people, we'll cover it all including some ridiculous gifts to get for fun. Let's get started with some family gift ideas!
First Two Rows (from left to right):
1A: Chemex 6-Cup Classic Series Glass Coffee Maker ($39 - Urban Outfitters) - For the coffee addict who appreciates the craft, this is a great gift for a sibling, cousin, parent...anyone really and it won't break the bank.
2A: Williams-Sonoma Classic Hot Chocolate ($19.95 - $31.95 - Williams-Sonoma) - There are actually four different flavors for you to choose from but nothing beats a classic cup of hot cocoa. This is a great gift for that family member who is difficult to shop for or for your grandparents. You can't tell me grandma doesn't love her hot chocolate at night.
3A: IPA Beer Making Kit ($44.95 - Williams-Sonomoa) - This is the perfect gift for a craft-loving brother. Let him make his own IPA beer right at home with an all-in-one kit.
4A: Keurig 2.0 K450 Coffee Brewing System ($209.99 - Kohl's) - This is a bit of a splurge. Mom and Dad would love this though. It's a great gift to go in on with siblings. There are all kinds of different Keurigs but what I love about this one is that it has the one-cup ability as well as a full pot. It's great for when they have company or are pulling a long work day.
1B: L'Occitane Holiday Beauty from Provence Collection ($36 - Sephora) - Treat mom to a little pampering with this great gift set from L'Occitane. The kit includes several products to give her smooth, nourished skin.
2B: Lucero Oil Connoisseur Gift Set ($58 - Sur La Table) - Everyone has a foodie in the family. Let them experience with flavors with this olive oil gift set. Four varieties made from California olives will keep their kitchen stocked for a while.
3B: Libbey 9-Piece Cocktails Mixologist Set ($29.99 - Bed Bath & Beyond) - Encourage dad's mixology passion with a brand new tool set. Also great for a brother who loves to experiment with spirits, this mixologist set has everything they need to whip up the perfect cocktail.
4B: Monogrammed Porcelain Mug ($5.99 - World Market) - If you're tight on a budget, this is the perfect gift for you. Get everyone their own personalized mug and fill it with their favorite homemade or bought treat like chocolate chip cookies or M&Ms.
1C: Grand Dame Recipe Tin ($38 - Anthropologie) - Give the family cook a gift that will go to use with this recipe tin from Anthropologie. The cards are perfect for documenting family recipes or new ones they come up with on the fly.

This cozy throw is a great gift for them and available in two different colors. Perfect for new homeowners or those who can't get warm enough, you'll make their Christmas morning with this gift.
3C: Google Chromecast ($35 - Target) - Say goodbye to commercials with Chromecast. Stream movies, music and TV shows right from your phone to the TV. This is the perfect gift for the Netflix binger in the family.
