Little House Living’s 2017 Gift Guide

Christmas is almost here!

Can it be Christmas already? Well, not quite, but it’s coming and before we know it, it will be here! For those of us that like to be prepared, now is the time to start searching for that perfect gift.

Do you want to give gifts that are useful or that will last a lifetime? Maybe something that supports a small business or is part of a natural lifestyle? Whatever you are looking for, we hope you might find it here on the Little House living Christmas Gift Guide.


I love a thoughtful homemade gift just as much as you do and they will always be a special part of our Christmas, but we also use the gift-giving season to purchase things that we need and that will help us along in our simple living lifestyle.

Sometimes it’s hard to find that inspiration for the perfect gift. Short of the person telling you exactly what they want, it’s just hard to know! We hope that this gift guide will be filled with things that you know your friends and family will love so you will be able to find something perfect for them.


So without further ado….introducing the 2017 Gift Guide!

*Please note, the following companies have sent these products to us free of charge to be added to this guide. The products were subsequently donated to our local Angel Tree. Thank you to all of these companies for helping to make some families in our community very happy this Christmas!
