LAST MINUTE GIFT IDEAS FOR EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST!

Hey friends! The countdown is ON! Christmas is just 2 weeks away. Can't even believe it. Feels like it was just July 5 seconds ago, honestly! I started planning for Christmas back in late September you guys. YES FREAKING SEPTEMBER. And I still feel so behind! 

Moment of truth, have ya'll finished shopping?! Or are you still buying gifts for everyone on your list? I am DEFINITELY still shopping, THANK THE LORD for Amazon Prime and the fact that most stores are offering two day shipping these days! Since I'm still shopping, I thought I'd put together a quick list of late minute deals & gift ideas for everyone left on your list. 



Let's start with the in-laws. Not sure why but they can be really hard to buy for and sometimes I feel so bad just giving a gift card! These Amazon Echo's are amazing and we love ours so much we decided everyone on our list was getting one. Well.. ALMOST everyone. ;) even better news is that they're on SALE today! Some color options as low as $69.99 + FREE 2 DAY SHIP! #winning These would also make a great gift for the "couples" on your list who you just don't know what to get! If $70 is out of your gift budget- this echo dot is on sale for just $29.99 today! ALSO, you really can't go wrong with house things! 





Moving on to teacher gifts, I always like to keep it simple. One of my girlfriends is a teacher and says that while homemade gifts are always appreciated, there really is nothing better than a gift card to buy supplies needed for the classroom and for the kids! I always give a gift card and a small gift! This year, I picked up these lesson planning juice wdine glasses and will include a small candle and my favorite hand cream! Useful things that everyone can use and love! You can even include a sheet mask to encourage teachers to take some time for themselves. They really work so hard and deserve it!





Hard to buy for teenagers? This game has been such a huge hit here at our house lately! It's on sale for $8.88 today! Even the teens are getting off the video games and playing! It's fun for people of ALL ages and really makes a great gift! Teen Boys love gift cards and you can't go wrong with a beauty gift set for Teen girls or a mens care gift set for teen boys!





What about Grandma or Grandparents? I always love to give my Gramma cash & small gift! Usually a robe & some slippers! These are the best ones! I bought my gramma these last year and she still thanks me every time she see's me for the slippers! Use promo code GIFTS25 for 25% off your order at this retailer. Snag a pair for yourself too! ;)





HUSBANDS. I have shared so many ideas this holiday season for men but they can still be so dang hard to buy for. I'm not kidding you when I say Nick always thanks me for the simple things the most. Gift Sets like these always get used! This leather wallet is one sale for only $20 bucks today! Also you just can't go wrong with COLOGNE GIFT SETS and this is Nick's FAVORITE!





Still have littles on your list to buy for? Savanna is obsessed with these scrubbies! And I honestly think most kids would be also! This is an awesome gift set! Younger kids who shouldn't be trusted with markers yet might enjoy these cutie cars! This set is on sale for $18.89 today! If you really want to WOW, You can surprise your little princess with a disney subscripton box service! You get a new princess dress every other month and other goodies included in the box! We get our first box this week and are SO EXCITED!!!




So there ya have it friends! last minute gifts for everyone on your list and you don't even have to put on pants or leave your house! Isn't that just the best way to shop?! So I HAVE TO KNOW! Are ya'll finished shopping or still going?! I'm hoping to finish this week! Wish me luck. Also, if anyone else is stressing about what to get me for Christmas, I like wine. ;)

THE ULTIMATE AMAZON GIFT GUIDE FOR EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST!

Hey babes! Hope you're having a great week! I can't believe there's only about 2 1/2weeks until Christmas! SERIOUSLY. Freaking out because I still have so much I want to do! Also, still not even close to being finished my Christmas shopping, I mean, I thought I was, but it turns out I'm just finished shopping for myself, oops. 

If you've been following along for awhile then you know that I'm a HUGE Amazon lover, it's pretty ridiculous. But seriously, they have EVERYTHING and I love that I can shop any and everything without putting on pants. I know some of ya'll can relate. ;) 



Which is why when one of my sweet followers suggested an Amazon Gift guide, I thought, duh! OF COURSE! Amazon is amazing and of course ya'll are doing some of your Christmas shopping there. So today I'm bringing you the ULTIMATE AMAZON GIFT GUIDE. 


Featuring gifts for everyone on your list, from teens, to hubbies, to in laws & littles! 


AMAZON GIFT IDEAS FOR YOUR HUBBY 
OR MAN IN YOUR LIFE

guys are just freakin' hard to shop for ya'll but NEVER FEAR, LAURIE'S HERE! Ha. That kinda rhymed, didn't it? Maybe a little? Okay, anywho.. this screwdriver set is on sale for 50% off making it just $19.99! Can you ever go wrong with a set of screwdrivers? Also, I snagged this Car Wash Kit a few weeks ago and it would make an awesome gift for the guy in your life who just really really really likes to clean his vehicles. *eye roll*




AMAZON GIFT IDEAS FOR YOUR WIFE/MOM/SISTER

while men will probably say differently, women are pretty dang easy to shop for. I mean  get me a candle and a fuzzy blanket and I'm good to go, however sometimes you're looking for something a little more unique and fun! NOT SAYING THROW BLANKETS AREN'T FUN. anyway who says differently can fight me, ha! speaking of throw blankets, if you want the ULTIMATE throw blanket, you need this one. It is pricey but SO WORTH IT. especially if you or the person you're buying for is all about that cozy life. If the blanket is out of your price range, these socks will also suffice! Also, I'm convince everyone and I MEAN EVERYONE needs a stainless steel wine glass, okaaaaay?!





AMAZON GIFT IDEAS FOR THE LITTLE GIRLS

while kids can be easy to shop for, because it seems like they want everything, it cans be hard to find and buy gifts for them that they will actually play with for more than 2 seconds. Nick is 15 now and I'm not buying him toys as gifts anymore but I have learned what toys seemed to hold up to time after all these years! Savanna has a few things on her wishlist this year but there are the things she plays with the most at 5 years old! 

Calico Critters- Savanna got these as a gift when she was about 3 and plays with them almost daily! The sets are so cute, detailed and well made! I was nervous about spending the money at first but she really does enjoy playing with them and they definitely inspire imaginative play. Great investment and so cute! 

Cutie Cars- something else that gets played with DAILY here. When Nick was little he was obsessed with cars, and I'm so glad they came out with a little girl version, although Sav still plays with the old ones Nick had, including lightning mcqueen! I ended up buying her a hot wheels track to play with them on, but she totally loves them and they'd make a great gift if you have a little girl to buy for! 

Play Kitchen- we've had this set since Sav was a year old! It has held up SO WELL. I wanted the set from Pottery Barn but at the time she was little and I didn't want to invest yet, however this set has held up so well over the years that I never felt we had to upgrade. It gets played with regularly and is always a hit when other little kids come to play and visit, it's pretty compact also and won't take up a ton of space! ships free with prime!

Dress Up Dresses- sav is obessed with dressing up! she says when she grows up she wants to be a "princess at disney world" and one of her favorite things to do is sign "autographs" for her "fans" ya'll I CAN'T. But this set is super cute and is a great starter set if you have a little in your life who loves to dress up also! 

Vanity- this vanity was the big santa gift last year! she absolutely still loves it! and sits here almost daily to "Get ready" like mommy! It's honestly the sweetest! It's very well made with lots of storage! 



AMAZON GIFT IDEAS FOR BOYS

it's been awhile since I've shopped for boys, I remember Nick always loved to play with anything related to spiderman, trains and nerf guns! 

NERF GUNS- you can never go wrong with a set of two so they can play with friends!

Walkie Talkies- I remember Nick had a set of these that he would play with for HOURS! it would seriously keep him occupied for hours! So now I get a set for all the boys I have to buy gifts for, who knew it would be the classics that they'd find the most appealing, huh?

Train Set- we had a set super similar to this one and had it for YEARS! Nick was always obsessed with trains, I love how this one comes in an easy clean up bucket so that it's easy
 to store and clean up! 

Tool Bench- another gift that sticks with me after all these years, so many toys came and went, but the tool bench stayed. 

Lego's- even after all these years we still have Nick's legos! They've been passed down to Savanna and she loves them! Can't go wrong with timeless classics!





AMAZON GIFT IDEAS FOR TEENS

I honestly think this has been my biggest request this year! PLEASE TELL ME WHAT TO BUY A TEENAGER! honestly, you can't go wrong with a gift card but sometimes buying gift cards just feels so impersonal. I get it! So I'm going to share a few fun ideas for teens and hope it helps you out a tiny bit;)




AMAZON GIFT IDEAS FOR THE HOME

doe's anyone else buy their house gifts for Christmas, or just me? I'm like, "this isn't for me, this is for the house" haha Amazon is an awesome place to shop for home stuff! This year I got an instant pot this year and last year I bought an ilife which has honestly been the best thing, EVER! ha! sharing some deals and gift ideas for the home below! 



AMAZON GIFT IDEAS FOR YOU

because duh, you deserve a gift too! Would it even be an amazon post if I didn't share as few of my favorite things from there lately?! The answer is NO. NO it would not.




I sincerely hope ya'll found this post helpful! I know shopping for gifts can be stressful sometimes and I hope some of these guides helped take a little of the pressure off.

WEEKEND SALES & ways to give back this season!

Hey friends! Happy weekend! Can you believe it's freaking December this weekend? I AM MIND BLOWN BY THIS. But also very excited! It's the best time of the year after all. 



Before I share a list of weekend sales with you guys, I wanted to chat a minute about why I love this season so much! For me, it's always been better to give, than to receive. I love giving back this time of year, growing up we didn't have a ton of money, my Mom was a single Mom and many years, we relied on others and the kindness of peoples hearts to get through the season. My Mom worked HARD. EVERY SINGLE DAY. But we still struggled, and many years we would go to local churches to gather money to pay our electric bill, or to put food on the table. I was always amazed at how kind people can be, and being a teen parent, there were plenty of times where Nick and I needed help as well. This is why, even when I was younger, I promised myself if I ever had the means to give back when I was older, I would do so. 

I understand this time of year is hard for a lot of people. That's why it makes my heart so full to give back when I can. I love hearing all of your ideas on how to give back this holiday season! a few of my favorite things to do to give back? I love to pay off student lunch loans at local schools, my life goal is honestly to be able to pay off every single one in full. I'm not there yet, but if I ever win the lottery you can bet that's what I'm doing with the funds! 



So while putting this list together, I went on a hunt for retailers that are giving back this season. Here is the list: 


American Eagle is donating one hat to someone in need for every winter accessory purchase, so if you're in need of some cozy warm accessories, you know where to shop! 


Mostly all of their winter accessories are on sale! 





TOMS  has always been amazing about giving back! They donate one pair of shoes to someone in need when you buy a pair. 






I'm always looking to share stores that give back! So if you ever come across any, please let me know so I can share and we can spread the love! 






Moving on to sales, I know lots of you guys are shopped out from last weekend, but December is a great month to snag some of the best deals of the year, stores are preparing for Spring arrivals (I know, crazy to think about!) and dropping new collections, so some of the seasons favorites are on major discount! 


So today I'm sharing a few weekend deals that are almost too good to pass up! No matter who you're shopping for! 





ABERCROMBIE - Is offering an additional 30% off sale items using code 11750. I snagged some of my favorite flannels for less than $20! and a few pairs of the low rise denim jeans that i've been loving lately for less than $40. Linking some of my faves and what I snagged below!
