Holiday Gift Guide for Your Family


The holiday season is officially here and with it comes friends, family and GIFTS! Looking at your gift list can leave you wanting to crawl into a hole and not come out until the new year. Don’t get overwhelmed with your holiday gift list this year. Instead, use the following guide to help you figure out what gift to get each family member on your list.

1.) Gifts for Grandparents. Whether it’s for your grandparents or your kids grandparents you can never go wrong a Frameology frame. Put a photo of your family in a nice, quality frame.They will enjoy the personal touch of the gift, but will also like the fact that they can see your beautiful faces any day of the year.

2.) Gifts for Mom. Likely one of the most important people on you list, you want to make sure that you get your mom the perfect gift this holiday season. After all, she did give you the gift of life. Something personal is always a good choice for mom. A piece of jewelry with her birthstone or a charm that relates to her interests is an excellent choice for a thoughtful, personal gift.

3.) Gifts for Dad. We can’t forget dear old dad! Give him something that directly relates to his hobbies. If he is the outdoorsy type, grab him some fishing, hiking or camping gear. An avid golfer, go for some new golf balls or a round at his favorite club. If dad is a sports buff, get him tickets to his favorite sports team. He will be overjoyed with any of these gifts.

4.) Gifts for Teenagers. If you have teenagers, you know how difficult they can be to buy for. They are too old for toys, but still want to open gifts. You could give them clothes or gift cards and they would be happy, but if you want to really win them over this holiday season get them a gift that they’ll remember. Concert tickets to see their favorite band or sports tickets to see their favorite team is a great gift for teens. If they don’t already have one, a new cell phone, tablet or laptop are also good choices. Any of these gifts will make you the favorite this holiday season.

5.) Gifts for Kids. Toys. It’s as easy as that. What else could a kid want? Some of the hottest toys this season are trolls - yes, trolls are back, Playstation VR, Shimmer and Shine Dolls, or Lego Minecraft Kits. Depending on the kids age and gender there are a number of toys that you could buy. Even sticking to the classics - trucks, dolls, barbies and Legos - will make the kids light-up with happiness this holiday season.


Gift giving is a large part of the holiday season, but it’s important to remember that is is not the most important part. Spending time with you friends, family and loved ones is the best gift that you could give anyone on your list.

  1. I think one of the more difficult groups to purchase for are those older relatives. They are usually in the downsizing stage of life and sure don't want a bunch of stuff. Photos, as mentioned, are a great idea and less likely to cause angst about clutter! Also, gifts of time, a meal or outing are good.

  2. These days I tend to lean towards gifts that offer an experience like meals and outings.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
