Troublemakers Puzzle, $40 | “We’re big puzzle people in our household, and this one looks like a challenge!”

Blanchard’s Blend, $13.80+ | “We lived in Richmond, Virginia for three years, and Blanchard’s was our go-to coffee at home.”

Hemming Birds Essential Burp Cloths, $26 | “My wife and I have a newborn son and if there’s one thing I’ve learned in the first few weeks of parenthood it’s that you can never have too many cloths.”

Louisville Rainbow Sweatshirt, $55 | “My best friend moved from Louisville to Lexington last year and she’s always trying to forget where she came from. That’s why I plan on gifting her this cozy Louisville sweatshirt to keep her warm — and to always remind her she’s a Louisvillian at heart.”

Azalea Earrings, $50 | “I’m known for wearing funky earrings every day, so I think this pair is perfect to add to my collection. I’m thinking a monochrome blue outfit would be perfect.”

Brewmiceter Ornament, $25 | “My friends and I are doing an ornament exchange this year and this little mouse wearing lederhosen is obviously what I’m buying.”

Sasquatch Carving, $170 | “My mom can’t stop talking about Bigfoot lately, so I figured I’d entertain her latest obsession with this handcarved footprint made of black walnut and red oak.”

Discoball Bolo Tie, $30 | “My New Year’s resolution is to work bolo ties into my wardrobe. This one is at the top of my list.”

Kansas Treehouse Vrbo stay, priced per night | “My partner and I go to Kansas every year for Christmas because that’s where he’s from. We always try to find a neat little spot to stay half way through the drive. I’m thinking this treehouse might be the perfect place to stay over.”

Brianna: “I’ve recently ditched the purse for a fanny pack to go totally hands-free while walking around town, which is why I’m eyeing these colorful fanny packs from Burlaep. (Pair it with this cute embroidered baseball cap and you’ve got a perfect city ‘fit.)”

Dayten: “We just moved, and I still have to build my reading nook: Methodical’s Ethiopian blend (which I’ve tried, and loved) and some elegant, renter-friendly decor.”

Emily: “I love waking up with a warm cup of chai tea in the morning — especially when it’s in a cute squirrel mug.”

Jessa: “Everyone loves a big fancy candle. Plus, get some decorative matches to... match.”
