Christmas is coming!!! This is the last week of November – so don’t let it sneak up on you. Because guess what? Christmas is December 25th this year. Who knew?!
Even though our family chooses not to break out the holiday decor and music before Thanksgiving, we are always shopping all year long to get our gift purchased early and at a good price. That leaves time for me to bake and craft with the kids during the holidays without losing my mind. Except I’ve already lost my mind, so I guess that didn’t work out so well.
Here are the other installments of the gift series, for your convenience. Because I’m awesome like that.
Day 64 – Tape Measurer ($15.97) available at Lowes, Home Depot or Amazon. This one is courtesy of Barry. He says “Ladies, get your man a NICE tape measurer. They will thank you.” And there ya have it. And actually, my kids play with them too…so that really says something. Everyone should know how to read one – and I was never taught that in school.
Day 65 – Personalized Backpacks ($24) from Sassy Covers Baby Boutique on Etsy. I have one of these for each of my kids. We LOVE them!!! I like to keep them prepped with extra clothes and such so that they are always ready to grab if we need them when we are going to be gone for the day.
Day 66 – Safety Glasses ($3.99) from Lowes, Home Depot, or Amazon. Another idea from Barry! And actually, this is a good gift for the ladies too…because I know when Barry is wearing these I am less likely to worry that he’s going to poke his eye out with a random piece of flying debris. And yes, I do worry about stuff like that. I am so lame.
Day 67 – Lilla Rose Flexi-Clips ($12ish+). When my hair is longer, I seriously wear these every single day. They are SO easy to use and make me feel pretty. I also love their bobby pins and headbands. Great gift for any woman or girl on your list.
Day 68 – Bible Coloring Books from BrBc Books ($15). We got sets of these for all the kids on our gift list this year. Annie LOVES her set. We also went ahead and got a set for Andy and Eli. I plan on pairing each set with a pack of crayons.
Day 69 – Pampered Chef 1 cup prep bowl set with lids ($22). Ohmygosh! I use these EVERY DAY. I wish I had two sets. They are so handy. Yes, they’re small but I always need to store small things. Or melt a small amount of something. I love that they are glass and not plastic. Probably one of my top 5 favorite Pampered Chef items.
Day 70 – Earth Mama Angel Baby Products ($2.89+). I absolutely love this brand…everything I have tried has been awesome. I especially love the baby wash. Great gift for any expectant mama on your list, or her new baby. Yet another gift that doesn’t require dusting. Shop via my Vitacost link and you can save $10 off your first $30 order!
