Each Christmas my family and I pile into the car and take a road trip from Texas to Iowa. One of our favorite stops along the way is for a chicken dumpling dinner at Cracker Barrel, a sweet treat for the kids, and last minute Christmas gifts for loved ones (plus, a birthday present for myself). If you’ve never been to a Cracker Barrel before, you’re in for a treat! The Cracker Barrel experience feels like coming home to a warm country welcome. The porch is lined with rows of rocking chairs and tables to play oversized checkers on. Inside, you’re greeted with the comforting smells of a home cooked meal. The walls and ceilings are covered with nostalgic decor that will remind you of memories you’ve shared with family and friends gathered around the table.
Cracker Barrel’s Old Country Store is overflowing with gift ideas for everyone on your Christmas list… from must-have home decor to vintage inspired ribbon candy, you’ll find the perfect gift you’ve been looking for at an amazing price.
I’ve put together some of my favorite gift ideas for this holiday season all for under $70 each. I hope you enjoy them and it inspires you to do some last minute shopping at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store!

Galvanized, Chippy, + Peely Laundry Tub
This laundry tub had me the moment we met. It’s galvanized with a scrumptious white, chippy, peely paint effect. With rolling wheels and handles on each end, this beauty makes time in the laundry room seem a bit more exciting! Oh, did I mention the price is only $69.99. Yup, you read that right! (Only available in stores.)
A Warm Welcome Home
Deliver a warm welcome to guests in your home with this rustic wood and metal deer wall decor. It has a woodsy charm with a galvanized metal deer and weathered wood feel. I tied a piece of rope to the hangers on the back and hung it by my front door where it greets all who enter my home.
Many of the pieces I’m sharing today come from the Winter Lodge collection.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow!
This charming, rustic, home-style driftwood snowflake ornament is part of the 2016 Woodland Christmas Ornaments Collection. After the Christmas tree has come down, this snowflake will be a darling addition tucked into a wreath on the front door.
Farmhouse Inspired Wire Basket
Cuddle Up with a Faux Fur Throw
This cozy, faux fur throw reminds me of cuddling up to my favorite teddy bear as a child. In my home almost every chair and couch is layered with a soft, comfy throw to snuggle up with for impromptu naps and afternoon cuddles with my kiddos. You can find more rustic, cabin inspired decor in the Winter Lodge Collection.
The Wings of an Angel
These weathered wood carved angel wings are a beautiful accent to a gallery wall, baby’s nursery, or simply displayed on a shelf. Mine are styled on a bookcase shelf in my family room as a reminder of the loved ones who watch over me from Heaven each day.
Journals and Jewels
As the New Year approaches, I love the idea of starting a brand new journal documenting daily moments of gratitude, bucket lists, dreams of the future, and moments of the heart. This gray, velvet journal with wood pencil is the perfect spot to hold all of those thoughts and more.
Chances are if you bump into me on the street, I’ll be wearing tassels and beads. These beaded bracelets with tassel detail immediately stole my heart when I spotted them (only available in stores). Cracker Barrel’s Old Country Store has a wide array of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets to choose from for the jewelry lover on your gift list.
A Symbol of Strength
For me, horses symbolize strength, freedom, grace, and beauty. This distressed, white and wood horse has the sweetest Scandinavian feel. It looks right at home nestled into my red and white Christmas decor (only available in stores). Be sure to check out the Horse Collection for gifts guaranteed to put a smile on the equestrian lover on your Christmas list.
A Country Caddy
Cracker Barrel’s mango wood and marble caddy is perfect for corralling jars of crayons on a kids’ craft table, holding mason jars filled with utensils for a country BBQ, a stylish way to contain office supplies, or as a statement piece on a shelf filled with a vase of fresh flowers. The options are truly endless!
Wrapped in Style
I love horses. Growing up I had a Morgan Quarter Horse mix named Lady’s Pride. She was my pride and joy. To this day, I naturally gravitate towards anything with horses on it as it brings back wonderful childhood memories. This charming scarf has rows of white stitched horses galloping along (only available in stores). Shop Cracker Barrel’s pretty selection of scarves and hat here.
These embellished gloves are super soft and stylishly chic. Each creamy white knit glove is accented with chocolate brown cuffs and a splash of sparkle.
I’ll take one of everything! Every single piece of clothing in the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is my cup of tea. With lots of layers and darling details, their selection of outerwear will have you wrapped in style this winter.
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store has shelves and shelves of yummy candy, gift sets, jams + jellies, and meal ideas. A family favorite in my home is this gift set full of crackers, cheese, bruschetta, and summer sausage. Within moments of taking this picture, my 8 year old and 5 year old devoured the summer sausage and cheese leaving only a few crumbs, their sweet smiles, and happy tummies. (This gift set is only available in stores.)
All of those yummy goodies are displayed on top of an anacacia wood cutting board. It’s a must-have in my book! Its rustic charm also makes a fun charger under your dinner plate or displayed on a kitchen counter with a white pitcher of fresh flowers.
I need to take a moment to shine the spotlight on this Maple Bacon Onion Jam. It is a-m-a-z-i-n-g, y’all! As in, I-ate-it-by-the-spoonful-out-of-the-jar-amazing. You could try that too… or consider pairing it with crackers.
A Country Kitchen
Nothing says country kitchen more than farm animals. These galvanized coasters remind me of the tops of antique mason jars. Each one has cork nestled inside and is imprinted with a rooster, chicken, cow, and pig. They are the perfect pairing to this black and brown rooster kitchen towel (only available in stores). Cracker Barrel has a whole line of Rooster kitchen decor that matches these pieces too!
