The holidays are in full swing! And, no matter what you’re celebrating this year, gift-giving is often harder than it seems. Whether you are shopping for your future mother-in-law, bridesmaids or anyone in between, we know it can be tricky to find something for everyone; especially if you don’t know them very well.
If you’re still on the hunt, look no further than Gray Duck Gifts, a local Colorado gift company. Gray Duck Gifts specializes in creating highly personalized and curated gift boxes for every occasion (ahem, perfect for Christmas). Each box is creatively sourced, thoughtfully designed and beautifully packaged with a handwritten note in each. It’s gift-giving at its finest: innovative, memorable and totally stress–free!
Below we’re sharing a few of our favorites along with some great gift-giving tips for you to remember this holiday season, and beyond. Oh, and if you order by December 18th, they will arrive just in time to pop them under the tree!
This gift box is perfect for your future mother-in-law! This gift set comes stocked with the cutest notebooks on the market, Rifle Paper Company, perfect for to-do lists on go or grocery lists at the store, a candle and hand wash. Trust us when we say you can never go wrong with a candle. Remember, gifts don’t need to be large to be thoughtful. A cute box like Mom’s Favorite has everything needed to make an impact in a small way!
This curated gift box will W-O-W whoever is lucky enough to be the recipient. This is perfect for your future brother or father-in-law that enjoys a nice cocktail on the weekends with his buddies. It comes fully loaded with: Bittermilk Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Fashioned, Cut Crystal Mixing Glass, Reusable Gold Cocktail Straws, Jumbo Silicone Icecube Tray, Theory 11 Premium Playing Cards, Luxardo Maraschino Cherries, and Virginia Peanuts.
The guys will be able to bond over a game of cards while enjoying a nice cocktail and bar snacks. What more could they need?
P.s. the I’ll Drink to That curated gift set also makes for a great Best Man gift!
If one of your bridesmaids, sisters or soon-to-be sister in law is expecting then this gift set is the cutest present around! The neutral colors will work for either a baby girl or boy, so if the momma-to-be hasn’t found out the gender it’s a no brainer. Included in this set is a Milk Bottle Baby Swaddle, Among the Flowers Lullaby Baby Wash, Gray Elephant Baby Lovey (so soft, the perfect constant companion for the little one), and the Oyster’s Pearl Baby Be Kind Onesie. All are essentials that will be very appreciated by the recipient.

We absolutely adore this gift set. If you’re heading to your significant other’s family home for the holidays, Home is Where the Heart is will be a great gift for the family. We like to believe that you should never show up to a party empty-handed. Show up with this in hand and you’ll earn a few extra brownie points with the parents.
This gift set comes stocked with: Acacia Cheese Board, Minna Sunrise Striped Towel, Ritual Madagascar Chocolate, Humble Suds Organic Lavender and Tea Tree All-Purpose Cleaner, Rosewood and Patchouli Hygge Candle, Bee Raw’s Sweet Yellow Clover Honey from Colorado, Big Heart Tea Co Cup of Sunshine, and Keats Wit + Wonder Handmade Soap.
Every item included has a purpose; help your in-laws clean the kitchen after Christmas breakfast using the tea tree cleaner or set up a charcuterie board for munching on during gift opening with the Acacia Cheese Board!

When creating a custom box with Gray Duck Gifts, keep these tips in mind:
Include a Local Treat:
Local gifts will help your friends and family get a taste for where you call home.
Incorporate Unique Elements of your Relationship:
Did you meet at a specific location, or have a memory that just jumps out at you? If so, include an item that pays tribute to this moment.
Practical and Essential:
Getting creative is always fun, but if the gift is something the recipient will never use again, it may be something to rethink. Gifts people will use more than once are always appreciated.
Remember, gift-giving should be fun! The holidays are truly about spending time with your loved ones and gifts are just an added bonus! Stay tuned later this week for more holiday gift ideas.
