When was the last time you had your photos printed out and displayed somewhere? I used to do this all the time but lately I’ve just had folders of images filling my computer but no longer my home. Now it’s time to change that. And just to be clear, this isn’t a sponsored post – I simply wanted to share Amazon’s new service because I’m really excited about it! Let’s chat about Amazon Prints.

Sometimes you have people on your list who are EXTRA impossible to shop for. Here is the sequel to last year's popular post. Use these gift ideas to knock them all out in one stop!

Gift Ideas for The Extra Impossible People on Your List

This post may contain affiliate links. Full disclosure.

Gift shopping can be so much fun – but it can also be such a headache if the people on your list seem impossible to shop for. I work hard for my money and if I’m going to be spending it on someone, I want to make sure the gift is going to be loved and put to use!

Last year I put together the post Gift Ideas for the Impossible People on Your List which included the categories of: the grown up kid, stressed out parent, blogger, bookworm, sophisticated drinker, foodie, sports fan, traveler, little ones, and littlest ones. The list was super popular, with over 55,000 visitors using it to help them gift shop.

That list is still a great resource, but this year my list has new individuals and along with that come new categories. Below you’ll find gift ideas for: the techie, young at heart,recent empty nester, home-body, the runner, the jokester, the one with no space, the one who is always cold, animal lover, and the new adult as well as my favorite find of the year.

There is something wholesome and calming about animation with feel good lessons mixed in. So check out a trailer for a new short as well as my favorites!

Finding Joy in Animated Shorts

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own. I keep sponsored posts to a minimum so the ones I do share you know I really do stand behind.

If you’ve seen my Friday Favorite’s posts you know I’m a sucker for animated shorts. There is something wholesome and calming about animation with feel good life lessons mixed in. Truthfully I could watch animated shorts (and full length movies) all day long if I had enough extra time to avoid being an adult. But usually I don’t have all day – but I do sometimes need that short break from the real world.

If today is one of those days for you, then you’re in luck! I have a teaser trailer for an animated film that is coming out this Saturday – as well as links to some of my other favorites. Take a look!
