Gift Guide: Gifts From “St. Nick”

Happy Friday Friends!!!!

Its been such a crazy week with all the family birthday celebrations, crazy shopping sprees and work, work, work!! So happy to be taking the day off and finishing up some more Christmas shopping today, And maybe getting a couple things for myself 🙂

I am wrapping up my final gift guide of the season today and its dedicated to the “big guy”…. Good Ole’ St. Nick! With so many requests for the bigger gift items, I wanted to share some of my favorites for anyone on Christmas morning. Since Christmas is 10 days away, be sure to snag the bigger gifts now in case anything has to be assembled or built. I have learned from experience, I might need a couple days to put something with more than 10 pieces together 🙂

Check out the roundup below:

Gift Guide: The Beauty Lover

 

Where my beauty lovers at?!?! I think we secretly each love a LONG walk down the aisles of Ulta or Sephora swooning over all the palettes and lippies. I mean.. I never leave the store without a bag full of goodies!!!

Speaking of beauty, struggling to come up with gift ideas for the beauty product-obsessed lady in your life? I know it can be rough when she literally has an entire linen closet filled with products. So instead of stuffing her stocking with junkie drugstore finds, pick up a few items that will completely blow her away. She might even think you did your research!

For all of my fellow beauty junkies, these are the things that I adore and love and think would mostly work for everyone. Meaning there aren’t many specific shades or personal items – it’s like fun products for everyone!

Gift Guide: Last Minute Stocking Stuffers

 

Happy “Green” Monday Friends!!!

Y’all…. we are officially 2 weeks away from Christmas!!! Who is done with all their shopping?

If your hand is currently in the air…. bless you!!! I thought I was ahead of the game last week but turns out, I am kind of behind! Especially with Ridge! #yikes It is “green” Monday which means sales, sales, sales!!!! Now is the time to get all your last minute gifts and stocking stuffers for the big day. Thankfully most retailers are doing next day or 2-day shipping to get your goodies in time.

Today, I have rounded up some great last minute stocking stuffers for everyone+ also sharing the retailers that are helping you save for the holidays!! The last thing you want is to be out and about scrambling for the little things and fighting the crowds. Some of these I actually snagged myself and I am hoping for the best as far as happy faces!

Getting In The Holiday “Spirit” , Pass The Booze

 

There is nothing quite like facing the chill in the air armed with something nice and toasty in your cup. Now, for this java junkie, during the day this time of year you’ll most likely find me sipping on a Peppermint Mocha, but come evening, I’m all about the boozy holiday drinks. Bwah! I mean, mama needs something special to help her get through all the holiday mayhem..

I know you fellow busy moms know exactly what I’m talking about. This time of year can get so hectic, but I always try to relax with my honey when I can, sip on a tasty cocktail and talk about how blessed we are to be enjoying another holiday season together! On that note, I thought I would round up a few of my favorite boozy holiday drinks for you!

White Elephant/Secret Santa Gift Guide

Back with another gift guide for all the holiday festivities, this one was probably my favorite so far! Whether you’re participating in an office or family White Elephant/Secret Santa gift exchange, unless you know your gift recipient really well, it can be hard to buy a great present that doesn’t suck. My family participates in the White Elephant game every year and I am always stuck on what gifts to get.

While at first glance it can seem tricky to find a thoughtful or fun gift that’s under a certain dollar limit, there are actually tons of great gifts you can get for under $30 and even under $20 and $15, no matter whose name you pull from the bag. I have rounded up some interesting yet AWESOME gift ideas that can be for anyone. I personally would take them ALL!! 🙂
