Sometimes we do our Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve, and sometimes we do it in October. Other times we realize we are up against a clock and we might just have time to get it all delivered before Christmas.
For Moms and Busy Working Women:
Shipt Membership. For $99 you can get Kroger, Central Market, and Target delivered to your door in just about 2 hours. This is one of my favorite ways to outsource things I don’t love to do. Save your special someone an extra hour or two a week.
For the Fitness Fanatic or the Soon-to-Be Fitness Fanatic:
Faster Way to Fat Loss. If losing weight, eating better, toning up, or just living a healthier lifestyle is one of their New Year’s resolutions, then help them out by signing them to jump-start their journey with Faster Way to Fat Loss. I’ve been using this program for almost 4 months now and I’m loving the results! Workouts can be done at home or at the gym (and you can switch every day if need be) and are designed for people of all abilities.
For the Mom/The Kids:
iPhone/iPad holders for the car. Entertain the kids without paying the premium to have your car wired for backseat entertainment. Take the phone/tablet from here to there and everywhere. Then free up their hands by attaching it to the headrest.
For Fierce Women:
Books. Leaders are readers, and I’ve made it a goal to finish a book per month. That seems like a measly target, but I’m starting small and hoping to finish some of these in 2019 myself. Check out Becoming by Michelle Obama, Dare to Lead by Brene Brown, or Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis.
For the Traveler:
Packing cubes. These have made packing for trips so much easier. Sure, it’s one extra step in packing, but they save tons of room and I love anything that is especially organized. They come in all sorts of colors–we have three (black for the hubs, red for me, and pink for Ava).
Quick and Easy/For Multiples:
Simmer pot ingredients. This is a cheap way to buy for teachers, neighbors, co-workers, friends, etc. For less than $15 you can put together all the ingredients for multiple recipes. The best recipes include lavender, rosemary, lemon, cinnamon sticks, cloves, allspice, orange peel, and cranberries. Buy large packs of the spices and then divide them up in smaller containers to give to multiple people. These make great mason jar gifts. My girlfriends loved them this year!
For the Cook:
Olive branch spoons. For the cook in your life, check out this PERSONALIZED olive wood spoons. Our best friends are amazing cooks and they bring these over even when they cook at our house. It’s a great take on a household staple!
For the Beauty Queen:
Rodan and Fields Lash Boost. I literally get asked almost every day if my eyelashes are real. And yes, they are. Thanks to using the SAME tube of Lash Boost that I got more than a year ago. I used it daily for 8 weeks, then every other day for another 4 weeks, and now I use it once a week. A little goes a long ways!
Lange Hair Curling Wand. Our nanny turned me on to this amazing curling wand. She found an amazing Black Friday deal, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. Less than 10 minutes to a head full of beautiful curls that hold all day.
Busy Beauties Signature Hair Kit. My curls would be NOTHING without the help of my favorite shampoo, conditioner, and styling cream. I’ve used a lot of different shampoos in my life, and I threw them all away to hang on to these. Created by a friend and her sisters, I love their hair products! I also love their skin products, so check those out as well. You also get 25% off your first purchase, and can save time and money by subscribing to deliveries as well!
For the Girl Who Has Everything:
Hand Lettering Kit from Chalk Full of Love. Another Texas based business, this woman has beautiful products on her site and is willing to teach you some of the tricks of the trade. These are beautifully created and a unique gift for that someone that’s hard to buy for but could use a little mental break!
For That Special Someone:
A weekend away. Sure, you can’t wrap this one…not really, anyway, but I’m big on buying experiences and not things. We have spent most of our money on travel the last several years, and the memories we have created have meant more than just about anything that we actually own. It’s worth traveling with little ones and without. And look for my weekend getaway post coming soon!
