Welcome to #breakthrulinkup #11!


No, I’m not backtracking on my initial desire to take the emphasis this Christmas season off ourselves and put it on others, as I mentioned last week, and elsewhere.


It’s not that I’m totally against gift-giving; it’s that I think we need to be intentional about it, recognize the sensitivities of the recipient, and keep it (as in all things) in balance.


And since Christmas is in view, let me help you out if you’re stuck for ideas and in a time crunch! Below is a listing of Gift Guides that I’ve put together over time, as well as some guides from friends of mine at the iHomeschool Network.
I trust among all these resources you’ll find SOMEthing that’s just perfect for the homeschooler you love!


Holiday Gift Guides – from AliciaHutchinson – Lots of categories here, but especially check out Gift Guides for Gamers, 15 Top Timeless Toys, and Stocking Stuffers for Teen Boys 2.0


Gift Guide for Work at Home Mommas – from ThisOutnumberedMomma – There are more and more work-at-home mommas out there, and I can say “Yes!” and “Amen!” to every one of her picks! (Hint-hint, family!)


50+ Educational Stocking Stuffers Your Kids Will Love – from MyLittlePoppies – Yes, there’s even stuff in here for older kiddos!


The Holiday Annual Gift Guide from iHomeschool Network – Definitely pour yourself a cuppa for this – massive – list!


Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Dads – from TheKennedyAdventures – I don’t know about you, but in our family, dad is THE hardest one to buy for, so we need all the help we can get!


Gift Guide for the Instant Pot-obsessed Mom – from PracticallyByDefault – Are you using the Instant-Pot yet? Ohmygosh, if you make the jump and buy it…you’ll LOVE it! (Aaaand, it’s a great Christmas gift if someone is asking…)


And while we’re in the kitchen, 5 Ideas for the Homeschool Mom Who Needs a Cooking Reboot – from TinasDynamicHomeschoolPlus – She’s got some creative ideas in this one!



At the end of the day, however, what better way to express love than through the precious (and probably scarce!) gift of your time. Praying that you are blessed with grace and wisdom as you look for ways to spend those precious minutes this season…
