Holiday Gift Ideas

December 8, 2017

Truth…I’m not a big let’s go shopping type of gal. I’ve been known to getaway to Target (50% off winter outerwear), World Market (30% off Christmas linens & 40% off cold weather accessories right now) or Pottery Barn (20% off entire purchase under $1,000, 25% off entire purchase over $1,000, 30% off beds, sofas & dining tables) but that’s more about escaping for some alone time.

I actually prefer to shop online when I’m buying gifts. I get overwhelmed when I go out and try and pick out gifts for family and friends. I do better if I’m able to make a list and just search online for a gift. I shop everywhere but my top 2 are Etsy and Amazon.

I love Etsy. I like to support small business owners and I like finding items that not everyone else has. The gifts are way more personal and special in my opinion.

There are a ton of gift guides out there so I’m not going to break things down into categories or go too crazy. I just thought I’d share a few of my favorites.

I’m a huge Amazon shopper. I joke that my goal is to never leave the house. Amazon is slowly making that possible. My favorite purchase this year have been my amazon dash buttons, my Alexa and subscribing to Audible. I’ll talk about all of them in another post. For now though here’s a helpful post on what you can use your Alexa for.

My list from Amazon include items I’ve purchased for myself, for others and some that are on my wish list.
