  1. Well it’s the most wonderful time of the year!

    Love the Cup of Jo gift guides :D

  2. Oh joy! My nephew was born and my bro & sister in law have 2 under 2…would you kindly list a few practical gifts for moms just home from delivery?!

  3. Sarah says...

    Love the gift guides, but was super disappointed to click over to the threejerksjerky.com website, and find out that yesterday (dec 1) was the last day to order for holiday delivery :(

  4. Lauren B says...

    Any way you could throw in a idea or two for teachers? I’m at a loss for ideas and dread the thought of something adorned with pencils. :)

  5. So looking forward to all of these, you have such wonderful taste! And with a new baby on the way, shopping can be a little harder this season!

    Hi!! I loveeeeee your gift guides. They are one of my favorite moments of your blog. However, I wonder if you can do a Roommate’s gift guide . I always struggle to give them the perfect present… Thanks!

  7. Katie J says...

  8. *it’s the moooost wonderful tiiime of the yearrr*

  10. Sarah says...

    Just sent my Dad a PieGram! Best idea ever. Thanks so much!

  11. Evalee says...

    Was JUST thinking this morning how I was hoping you’d put them up soon! Hurray! Let the browsing begin!

  12. Aidel.K says...

    Looking forward–your gift guides are the best!

  13. Hooray!! I use at least one husband and brother suggestion every year. And the sister list always has something perfect for my BFF. Thank you!

  14. Emily says...

    Yaaaaaaasss!!

  15. Rachel says...

    Yay! Always excited for Cup of Jo’s gift guide. :)

  16. Paula says...

    Excited!! Could you please include (or post on a separate entry) gift ideas for the in-laws?

    Thanks!

  17. CATHERINE says...

    I love your guides! But this year, could you add a teenage section? So hard! And I don’t want to give money as gift…Thanks!

    • Trish O says...

      Love a teen list

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      we will brainstorm and see if we can come up with some good things! thanks for the idea.

  18. OMG, my favorite thing you post every year. I can’t wait. That being said every year we buy our son a beautiful, wooden, eco-friendly, super awesome toy and he never plays with it. This year he’s getting a bundle of sticks with a bow wrapped around it, not even kidding. But I’m excited to read the kid’s gift guide anyway.

  19. Kelly says...

    Woot! Just in time! I need to get my husband a gift for his birthday next week!

  20. Jennifer Zelaya says...

    Love your blog, I’ve been an avid reader since its inception.
    However, it’s pretty heteronormative and you rarely make any effort to address this. I would agree that a git guide for partners or even girlfriends would help with this.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      thank you for your note! i hear you. we definitely strive to make cup of jo feel inclusive, whether we’re doing beauty uniforms, wedding round-ups, book reviews or parenting stories. these gift guides have always been based on my particular family members — my husband, my toddlers, my twin sister, etc, which is why the titles of all the gift guides reflect my family’s specific personalities. although these are the people i have in my family, in each guide, we try to find things for different personality type, ages and budgets. that way, hopefully the female gifts would be good for many women, and the male gifts would be good for many men. i hope that helps! xoxo

  21. Sarah says...

    PRAISE HANDS.

  22. Megan says...

    Wish you would do a gift guide for partners, not necessarily just husbands

    • She’s referring to her husband…but there’s nothing stopping you from getting the gifts for your partner or choosing something from the other guides for your partner…

  23. Ashley says...

    Yay! Your guides are the best and throughout the years I’ve relied on them for excellent gift go-tos. Thanks Cup of Jo team! xo
