Anyone else out there who hasn’t bought any holiday gifts yet? I wish I could say I had more under my tree, but this weather has me convinced I have a few more months. Oh, wait, Black Friday was weeks ago? Uh…Amazon to the rescue!
Actually, in general, I usually buy Christmas gifts around this time. A broke-ass ho has to save up for this, you know? The moment I get that one healthy paycheck (a couple of years ago, it wasn’t until Dec. 19!) I place one big order on Amazon and have it sent to my house in Michigan so I don’t have to worry about transporting everything home.
Speaking of Amazon, one of the best gift ideas I’ve heard yet this year was the idea to give an Amazon Prime membership. I love my Prime membership. It’s around $80 for the year, but I went in on it with friends (you can have four people on the account) and so it only cost $20 and I get free two-day shipping on pretty much everything. It’s paid for itself in the money I’ve saved not having to buy things in a traditional bookstore (or grocery store — I buy things like coconut oil on Amazon for way cheaper than I would at the grocery store!) I don’t know many people who wouldn’t use it, so I see it as a nearly perfect gift. You could buy it for yourself and then share it with friends for a holiday gift.
Anyway, here are a few more things I’m loving right now. There is no theme with this list, no stereotypical person who these things are perfect for (moms like to bake! boys like to grill! sister likes sequins!) — these are just my favorite things that might be just right for the last person on your list!
This is definitely not just for brides and bridesmaids! It’s adorable for anyone who totes her things around! The monogram comes in tons of cool colors, so you can come up with a combination that is perfect for your giftee. I bought myself one a couple months ago and I still love it.
Hello, I love it.
Everything about this is awesome!
Adorable, inexpensive…can’t miss. I love mine!
What can I say? I’m loving all things state-related since I moved. I just think that so many people are far from home these days, and things like this are a sweet way to represent your homeland, and a great gift for someone who is far, far away.
I am not sure if these are guaranteed for delivery by Christmas, but they too great to not share. Even choosing one is tough, but that one is my personal fave.
OK, let’s be honest…off-color office supplies are the way to my heart.
That’s all I got.
And also, I really, really need to do my Christmas shopping.
