2015 Cool Mom Picks Holiday Gift Guide

The 2015 Cool Mom Picks Holiday Gift Guide: Over 300 gift ideas for everyone on your list

We are beyond thrilled to present our 2015 holiday gift guide, which we have to say is our biggest and our best yet. We mean it this time! (Okay, so we mean it every time.) You’ll find 19 pages packed with truly fabulous holiday gift ideas for every single person on your list, in every price range, many of which are from small brands and indie makers, which makes us very happy.

From every kid on the nice list this year, to that mother-in-law who says she doesn’t want a gift (but really does), to that super picky tween or teen, whether you’ve got a tight budget or sky’s the limit, we’ve scoured the far reaches of the internet to have you covered with the coolest holiday gifts and even clever DIY gifts you can make yourself.

Plus, you’ll find lots and lots of discount codes. Because we know you love discounts as much as we do.

UPDATE: While there are tons of fabulous gift ideas here, be sure to visit our new 2016 holiday gift guide with 350+ gift ideas for everyone on your list!
