12 MORE DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
If you’re like me, you do the majority of your Christmas shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday — online.
I absolutely adore this time of year, but what I do not love one bit is the lines and the crowds of people at the stores- and I don’t live in a large city, so I can only imagine what that is like.
Super quick side note, one year my family and I were in New York in SEPTEMBER and the top floors of the Macy’s on 34th street were all closed off with curtains. After glancing around to make sure no one was watching- a quick peek confirmed that they were beginning to take out all their Christmas decorations. The only thing that outweighed my excitement was the disappointment that I wouldn’t get to see the store all decked out.
Anyways, back to this year and not shopping in person! Amazon is literally my best friend during the holidays. I mean, one year I was able to order all of my presents through amazon- and the wrapping paper- and the ribbon. I beat the crowds and got it all delivered to my front door! I’m also a HUGE promoter of #ShoppingSmall. I have plenty of personal friends who sell things I not only know those on my list will love, but I get to support their business as well, so it’s a win-win! Between Amazon and Small Shops, I have a great variety to choose from, but there are times where I’m at a loss which is why I am so incredibly thankful for those bloggers who create Holiday Gift Guides!
If you’re struggling to find a gift, browse through my favorite holiday gift guides (and some other fun shops) to cross everyone off your list! And you better hurry, most of these places have a deadline to get your gifts to you in time!
Highlighters, mugs, pens, jewelry, notebooks, household items, the list goes on and on. I LOVE this shop!
Wear your faith tees! I have about a dozen of these tees and live in them on my blogging days, but I also find ways to wear them out because they are just so darn comfy!
A naturally based hair care line infused with essential oils; strong enough to strip your hair of all chemicals and yet safe enough to use on color treated hair. If you or someone you know is looking to grow their hair, lock in moisture, and give it a healthy shine- head on over! 🙂
At the top of everyone’s New Years Resolutions is usually something along the lines of getting healthy and fit (keep your eye out for that post coming Thursday!). A coworker introduced me to thrive and I seriously cannot believe how much energy it gives me! The best part is that it’s ALL-NATURAL and GMO Free!
