Homeschool Unrefined

Nov 18, 2019

Do you tend to overthink holiday shopping? Us too. But good news: We've done all the hard work for you! We've asked our kids, looked around our houses, and reviewed our Amazon histories to bring you a curated list of gifts our kids have LOVED over the years. Yep, ONE-CLICK SHOPPING. So sit back and enjoy knowing your shopping experience can be a little bit less stressful this year. All of the items mentioned can be found in our Amazon shop at


MORE gift ideas!

Last year's Patreon episode "More Holiday Gift Ideas" is available for Patreon supporters. We talked about our favorite gift subscriptions, gifts for parents (and what we're asking for this year), and our favorite homeschool-specific books for kids. To hear that episode and many more we've recorded just for supporters, go here.

HURRY! Don't miss Coffee Hour Live!

We're doing an online Coffee Hour Live on Wednesday, November 20 from 3:00-4:00pm Central! Plan out your beverages of choice and a movie/documentary/video game for your kids.
