It’s December 17. WHOAH.
I know that half of you probably already have all of your gifts beautifully wrapped and under the tree. #goodforyou
And the other half still have a ways to go.
I mean, there are 2 kinds of people, am I right?
There are also those of you that have presents under the tree, but you don’t remember what’s in them. #imlookingatyouerika
And then there are those that have most of the gifts purchased, but nothing is wrapped, and all of the boxes are stuffed in a closet somewhere. #itme #imlookingatme
Today’s post is hopefully going to be super helpful to those of you that still have a bit of shopping to do! I made sure to only include items that will arrive by Christmas…so you can buy something for yourself to wear on Christmas day (or whenever!)…..or you can buy gifts for others! (Please keep in mind that shipping dates are always changing, so make sure the item is still shipping on time to your area before you hit purchase.) Everything I’m talking about today said “Arrives by Christmas!” as of Thursday night….and many of the items show 2-day shipping.
MY AMAZON FAVORITES FOR CHRISTMAS
The items in this collage are items that I LOVE, that I ADORE, that I can personally vouch for, and that I would be proud to give as gifts to a loved one. These aren’t just items that I’m seeing online and thinking they would make a cute gift, these are items I KNOW would make really wonderful gifts.

A FESTIVE FRONT PORCH
I gave my front porch a festive refresh for Christmas, and I thought y’all might like to see.
The “For Unto Us a Child Is Born” yard sign was purchased at a Christmas event years ago. I looked for a similar one online, and I came up short. So sorry!
So the refresh part came in with the pillows and throw. I’ve had some pillows and a throw on the porch for several years now, and they worked year-round. However, they weren’t festive at all, so I got some pillow covers (to throw over my current pillows!) and a new throw for a Christmas porch.
CLOTHES THAT ARRIVE BY CHRISTMAS
Okay, girls. I’ve got lots of clothes to share with you today! Some are brand new to me, and some are pieces you’ve seen before, but I’m showing them again because they are things I love that are still available for Christmas delivery.
Let’s start with this pullover. This is the “pure wine red” color, and it will ship out to most by this weekend! I love the pullover styling, I love the snaps and stand up collar, and I love how comfy it is. It has EXCELLENT reviews (over 5,000 5 star reviews), and it’s under $40! For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
The link also has zippered pullovers and asymmetrical zippered pullovers.
If you love a realllllllllllllly soft sweater, this sweater is for you. This leopard v neck is an INCREDIBLE DEAL! Right now it’s on sale for under $30, and there’s actually lots of different colors and patterns on this link. I actually really love the white leopard as well as the solid colors that are available. They arrive before Christmas, and I would be totally proud to give this as a gift! For size reference I’m wearing a medium, but I would prefer a small.
If you like super cozy things, buy this sherpa half zip pullover right this very second. It arrives after Christmas, so it won’t work for a Christmas gift in this color, but it WILL work as a little gift to yourself for getting through all of the holiday craziness.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small, and I could definitely wear it with leggings.
This leopard sweatshirt is lined with a really light fleece, so it’s quite cozy. It comes in tons of colors, most of which arrive before Christmas, and it’s UNDER $20. TWENTY DOLLARS! For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. If I was going to wear it with leggings, I would size up to a large.
And here’s the camo version! I love both and will get a ton of wear out of both of them. The camo version is UNDER $16 right now! Remember, size up if you want to wear with leggings.
Both the camo sweatshirt and the leopard sweatshirt arrive before Christmas.
This star pattern is no longer available, but this is the same sweatshirt as the camo and leopard sweatshirts above. I wanted you to see how if you size up, you can wear this sweatshirt with leggings. For size reference, I’m wearing a large in this one because I wanted to make very sure it was going to be long enough for my leggings, and it most definitely is!
It’s so flipping cozy and I can’t believe the price. The leggings are awesome, and I’m wearing a small.
This sweatshirt is from Old Navy, but the leggings are the Amazon ones that I’m OBSESSED with. Officially, they are called High Waist Power Flex Leggings – With Tummy Control. They are FANTASTIC because they suck you in while still allowing you to breathe. It says they promote both compression and support, and they are not see thru at all. I’m wearing a small in the leggings and love the fit. Click HERE for all the different legging lengths that are available.
This marled crewneck sweater arrives before Christmas, is very well made, and I love the contrasting neckline, cuffs, and hem. It’s a thick weave, so some might think it’s too bulky, but I still like it. I’m wearing a medium here and definitely needed the room in the chest.
This chunky stripe sweater is just as cute as can be. I love the colors and the patterns. It’s very well made, and I like that it’s different. It’s pretty chunky, so you might want to pass on this if you don’t like a chunky sweater. For size reference, I’m wearing a small. It arrives before Christmas.
Y’all know I love a cardigan. Always have, always will. And this chunky cable knit red one is no exception! It’s just so flipping cute! For size reference, I’m wearing a small. This is a great Christmas red, but it does come in tons of color options. It’s under $40, and it arrives before Christmas!
This relaxed fit hoodie sweatshirt is a great super casual option for leggings. It’s soft, cozy, and has a bit of stretch in it. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. It also comes in blue, black, and grey.
I’ve shown this several times, but it would make such a great present, so I’m showing it again since it arrives before Christmas! How CUTE is this camo puffer jacket. LOOK AT THE LINING! The lining looks pink here, but it’s definitely more of a coral/orange. It’s super cute. I’m wearing a small here, but I definitely need a medium. It’s a great price at under $45! It has over 6,000 5 star reviews. It’s lightweight, but warm.
In this outfit, the cardigan, necklace, earrings, bracelet, and bag are ALL FROM AMAZON!
This cardi is a wonderful basic. It comes in 6 great colors and is lightweight enough that it can really be considered a year-round cardigan. I think the longer line makes it very flattering, and it can easily be dressed up or down. It’s UNDER $35 and is definitely nice enough for an office environment. For size reference, I’m wearing an XS, but I think a regular S would be better.
The simple gold hoops, the fun tassel, and the multi strand gold bracelets are all fabulous and under $20. And the tote is NOW UNDER $15! WHAT THE HECK.
Here’s the same cardigan in camel. I LOVE IT IN THE CAMEL, and I think it looks awesome with my Amazon leopard belt that is under $18. It’s a totally chic look that is made up of basics that every closet needs.
I seriously cannot get over the price of this tote. It was a great deal when it was under $20, BUT UNDER $15 IS JUST NUTS.
The tote comes in sooooooooooooo many colors. I ordered 3 in the brown/cognac family, and this one was the clear winner! It’s called “brown new style”, and it looked the most like real leather, and the color was definitely the most rich. As you can see, I like tying a bandana to the strap (click HERE for all Madewell bandana choices), but look below the bandana and you will see the cute tassel that comes on the bag! It’s great too! And this tote is the perfect size for the medium felt organizer.
I love everything you see here! And all of it makes a great gift!
And as a reminder…the cardi is under $20, the blingy necklace is under $15, the tassel necklace is under $10, the tote is under $20, and the flats are under $25! WOW.
This bracelet (A2 short gold) was such a nice surprise for me. I had low expectations for it for some reason, but it blew those out of the water. It has a magnetic closure and boasts multilayered gold leather cords. To be honest, when I saw it in the package, I was a little disappointed. But then I put it on and fell in love. It’s so good and just under $12 right now. There are countless color options and variations of this bracelet, and I suggest you hop over to check some of them out. Lots of the options are actually really great, but this one is officially called “A2 short gold”.
What about a leopard belt as a present? If you’re loved one doesn’t have one, fix her up for Christmas!
I scoured Amazon, ordered this one to try for y’all, and it’s great!
Click HERE for the belt. It’s UNDER $15 and has incredible reviews!
You’ve see this next sweater before. Several times before. This might just be my favorite Amazon find for 2020. And in 2021, I bought another color. I mean, I HAVE IT IN 5 COLORS. NOW that should prove to you that I’m a big ol’ fan. It’s super soft, has a super drapey fit, and is super cute. It’s so easy to wear, and I love it with jeans, leggings, and nicer pants too. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
Click HERE for the sweater. It comes in TONS of colors, most arrive before Christmas, and some colors are UNDER $30 right now!!!
Click HERE if you want to get to the post dedicated to this little gem. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
This sweater is SERIOUSLY soft. And it’s a super relaxed fit (which I love). It has a bit of a bat wing design, but it’s still very flattering. I’m wearing the small here and it’s still quite roomy. It comes in 12 total colors.
I had a lot of people asking me about the fabric content since we couldn’t find it listed on the site. I didn’t know then, but I’ve since found an interior tag with the following info: 50% Viscose, 30% Nylon, 20% PBT. If I had to guess, I would have guessed clouds and unicorn wings.
I love this camel cardigan and I think it looks awesome with my Amazon leopard belt that is under $15. It’s a totally chic look that is made up of basics that every closet needs. It would make a great gift too. So would the gold bracelet!
We can’t talk Amazon accessories and Amazon gifts without talking about my very favorite pave huggie earrings.
I mean, I’m not a diamond expert, but I think these babies look real. AND THEY ARE JUST $12.95! I wear these alllllllll the time. I sleep in them, I talk on the phone with them, and I LOVE them.
In fact, I love them so much it was my gift of choice for all my friends at last year’s favorite things party!
For another super casual look, check out this soft polar fleece jacket. I love this vibrant pink but it comes in TONS of colors, and most are under $25. It’s super soft, super warm, super stretchy, and super cute! And as always, I love the stand-up collar.
A fleece sweatshirt, pajama shorts, and a big floppy headband? YES, PLEASE!
The sweatshirt is UNDER $10, the pajama shorts are UNDER $15, and you can get a 4 pack of the head bands for UNDER $20! The headbands would make a great stocking stuffer! They are perfect to throw on when washing your face or masking. I’m wearing a medium in the sweatshirt and a small in the shorts.
I’m IN LOVE with this hoodie sweater. This dark grey is sold out, but there are several other colors available. I know I’m wearing it super casually here with leggings and sneakers, but it actually feels very luxe. And it looks and feels much more expensive than it’s under $40 price tag. I’m wearing a medium.
All right, ladies.
Please listen to me when I tell you that this cardi is CRAZY soft. The ratings are fantastic, and I couldn’t agree more. It comes in 13 colors, so there’s something for everybody. I got this last year and have worn it so many times, and I keep finding new ways to style it.
For size reference, I’m wearing the x-small/small.
I know many of us have been on SERIOUS organizing kicks, and I’ve been SO HAPPY with the purchase of this 360 degree beauty organizer. You can adjust the shelf height for your personal needs, it spins all the way around, the products are super accessible, and it holds ALL THE THINGS! I highly recommend this baby. Click HERE. I also have been totally pleased with this organizer and this LED makeup mirror!
These sheets are truly amazing and an incredible value! And heaven knows we all deserve amazing sheets, especially right now!
They are soft, they are crisp, they are cool, and they have over 160,000 5 star reviews! Everybody loves these sheets, and they are now on every bed in our house. I also bought two sets of twin sheets for when Carter and I went to camp. They are cheap enough to do that! But forget the price, THE QUALITY IS EXCELLENT.
This LED Makeup Mirror is truly amazing, but I’m not sure if you are going to thank me or hate me. I mean, now that we have all this extra time at home, we might as well use it to pluck and pick our faces, right?
The first time I looked into the lit 7x side, I WAS SHOCKED. I might even go so far as to say horrified. #wishiwaskidding
I couldn’t believe how many stray eyebrow hairs I had. But I have to say, after getting over the initial panic, I LOVE THIS MIRROR. The reflection is bright, the lights provide awesome illumination without being too harsh (when putting on makeup), and it looks great on my bathroom counter. I think that EVERYBODY needs this mirror. Treat yourself and/or give as a gift.
*For The Guys*
So these are the items I grabbed for Chris last year from Amazon:
* I’’d heard about this neck and shoulder massager from several bloggers (and friends) for years. I finally took the plunge and I ordered it for both Chris and my brother-in-law last year. Technically, it was a gift for him, but I used it just as much! The perfect kind of gift, right?
* This battery organizer MAY arrive by Christmas, depending on where you live. I got it for Chris last year and it’s AWESOME.
* This quarter zip fleece comes in tons of colors and is UNDER $30!
And here’s a collage I published earlier in the week….
The soft-shell jacket is UNDER $40, has near perfect reviews, and looks super similar to Chris’s North Face jacket. The Jack Black gift set is a great way to start your man on a skincare routine, and it’s ON SALE right now. The moccasin slippers are UNDER $30 and have thousands of 5 STAR reviews. The tire pressure gauge makes a great stocking stuffer, and a G Shock watch is almost always a fantastic gift idea. Carter and Chris both have a G Shock and wear them every single day. The hammock is actually one of Carter’s presents from last year. We took it to the ranch, and we all love it!
soft shell jacket (extended sizes HERE)/ zip polar fleece / Jack Black gift set ON SALE / gym duffle bag / moccasin slippers / men’s wallet options / tire pressure gauge / G Shock watch options / GCI rocker / hammock / docking station / engraved pocket knife
Okay, y’all! That’s it!
I sure do you hope that you’ve crossed every single last person off your list! Now it’s time to enjoy the rest of the season with your people!
