Ladies, Christmas is upon us. Now is the time to grab those last minute gifts! We are all officially running out of time. But just because the gifts are last minute doesn’t mean that they can’t be awesome!
Today I’m featuring items from Amazon and Nordstrom THAT WE OWN. I can personally vouch for the items in both the Amazon and the Nordstrom Gift Guides today, and I can confidently say that they will make excellent gifts!
AMAZON ITEMS WE OWN THAT MAKE EXCELLENT GIFTS
Amazon is an obvious choice for where to shop for last minute gifts, and just look at all of the options that will still arrive by Christmas! (All of the below items will ship to my area before Christmas day, but make sure the delivery window is the same for your area as well!)
portable rocking chair / tunic sweater / pave earrings / jewelry cleaner / jewelry organizer / STUFF case / meat chopper / leopard weekender bag / Donna Karen deodorant / chin masks / spinning organizer / travel toiletry bag / sunglasses / wrinkle spray / Kenra blow dry spray / flip flops / men’s pullover
portable rocking chair / This is a great gift for dads as well as grandparents. These are the chairs we take to soccer games, and they are so awesome. We also sit in them around the campfire at the ranch.
tunic sweater / I own this sweater in 5 colors. Yes, it’s that good. I wear it with jeans, I wear it with leggings, I wear it casually with leggings and sneakers, and I dress it up with skinny jeans or boot cut jeans and boots!
pave earrings / I found these earrings probably about 5 years ago now. I loved them so much I gave them out at my friend’s annual Favorite Things party a couple of years ago, and they continue to be in my TOP 3 most worn earrings. I shower in them, I talk on the phone in them, and I sleep in them. They are gorgeous (I think they look real), and the huggie fit is the best. There are no posts to poke you!
jewelry cleaner / Chris got this for me last year for Christmas. I think he was served an ig ad for it, and it’s so awesome. I use it about once every 2 weeks, and WOWZA!!!! You won’t believe how sparkly your diamonds are when you take them out.
jewelry organizer / I’ve ordered many jewelry organizers over the last 10 years, and this is the best one by far. I love everything about it because there are lots of compartments for earrings and bracelets, but it’s the necklace storage that makes it my favorite traveling jewelry case I’ve ever had. You snap the necklaces into place, and then you pull them through the elastic bands, so they stay nice and neat without getting tangled! It stores so much jewelry, and I love that it matches my over the door toiletry case too. If you have a traveler on your list, consider these items for gifts!
STUFF case / I just got this in! It’s SO CUTE in person. I wish it was a little larger, but I still love it.
meat chopper / Do you ever make tacos? Do you ever brown meat for spaghetti or chili? If so, you NEED this meat chopper. It’s one of my very favorite kitchen tools I’ve ever owned. It makes the best stocking stuffer.
leopard weekender bag / I had a reader recommend this to me years ago, and it’s soooo good. It’s definitely roomy enough to pack yourself up for a weekend away, but it’s not too big that once full it’s too hard to carry. The strap is cushy and comfortable on your shoulder, and I love that it has a separate compartment for shoes on the bottom. It’s a FABULOUS value at just under $45.
Donna Karen deodorant / This is the best deodorant there is. It’s totally bougee, but I don’t even care. It smells amazing and it works great.
chin masks / Do you have a double chin? #jointheclub These masks do wonders for tightening up your jaw line and would make a great stocking stuffer.
spinning organizer / I’ve had this organizer on my bathroom counter for at least 3 years now. It holds so many of my beauty products, and I love how it spins around and makes all of the products so easy to access. It’s a must have for me.
travel toiletry bag / Y’ALL. This toiletry bag is LEGIT. It holds sooooo much, and it even holds full size items if you want! It has almost 38,000 reviews, and almost all of them are 5 stars! You stuff it full of all your products, and it folds up and zips up so easily. When you get to your destination, you unfold it and hang it up wherever you want it! EVERYBODY needs this bag. Seriously.
sunglasses / These are the sunglasses you see in probably half of my posts. I only have 4 pairs of sunglasses, and these are 2 of them. The other two are the ones you will see next in the Nordstrom collage (that I have in 2 colors). You can get both of these sunnies from Amazon for only $21.99 for the pair! Put them under the tree or put them in a stocking!
wrinkle spray / This wrinkle spray is a product that I do not go without. I hang up a piece of clothing, I spray it with the spray, I tug on the clothing, and then I watch the magic happen.
Kenra blow dry spray / I’ve been using this blow dry spray for years and absolutely swear by it. It reduces drying time, it tames fly-aways, AND IT SMELLS FANTASTIC.
flip flops / Chris has these and thinks they’re awesome. Check out the reviews!
men’s pullover / I actually got this for Chris a couple of weeks ago and he absolutely LOVES IT. He has it in the “blue heather” shown in the collage, and he actually likes it so much that I ordered a 2nd one for him for Christmas in the “charcoal heather”.
NORDSTROM ITEMS I OWN THAT MAKE EXCELLENT GIFTS
Nordstrom is another retailer that’s a great choice to grab last minute gifts. They’ve got free shipping, free returns, and they have lots of options that will arrive by Christmas Day. Just check your delivery area and make sure these items will deliver in time to your areas as well.
A blardigan is a NO FAIL gift for a mom, MIL, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, best friend, and the list goes on. I say that giving a blardigan is like giving a hug, so who do you want to give a hug to this Christmas? The best throw ever is a super economical gift that works for your toddler and it works for your grandma. EVERYBODY loves it. I own these Quay sunglasses in both black and tortoise, and for $55 they are quite a steal. I started using the T3 curling iron this summer, and now I’ll never go back. I love the way my hair looks when I use it. The pajamas are ones that I buy every several years, and this leopard print is on sale right now. And I think these joggers are absolutely a MUST HAVE.
blardigan / leopard bag strap / best throw ever / perfume sampler / pave heart earrings / pave heart necklace / pave bangle / sunglasses / makeup palette / T3 curling iron / full fat lashes mascara / pajamas / UGG slippers / Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing set / pillow talk gift set / joggers
FESTIVE SWEATER AND CASSIE’S HOLIDAY BOX
This sweater is soooooooooo good, y’all. It is closer fitting than most sweaters I wear, and it’s thick and warm. It’s called a “cropped” sweater, but don’t worry, it’s not so cropped that there’s any chance of my belly showing. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
It comes in tons of great colors. You might remember than I showed it in the purple colorway a couple of weeks ago.
And check out my jewelry! It’s all part of my friend Cassie’s newest collection with Victoria Emerson.
Cassie let me grab some of her pictures to show y’all the box.
This box and its contents are GORGEOUS!
It retails for $309 but they’re offering it to everybody for just $99 right now, plus free shipping! The hard part is choosing between gold and silver! As I said, I have the gold box, and I love all 5 of the pieces. All of the pieces are classic.
SANTA ALERT FOR ME
I just ordered this picture keeper storage set for myself to open up on Christmas morning. Heaven knows I need it, and it’s ON SALE!
The online description made me laugh. It also made my heart race. 😉 Phone storage full. The three little words that strike fear in your smartphone heart. But with Picture Keeper Connect, you can easily and efficiently backup and protect your photos, videos, and contacts — safeguarding those treasured files while making room for new magical memories. Just download the app, plug the compact Connect into your device, and tap Start Backup. That’s it! And with this set of two, you can double your personal storage space or gift this fabulous find to a friend. From Picture Keeper.
I have a ton of storage on my phone, so I’m not so much worried about running out of space as I am about losing photos if I lose or break my phone. Years ago when I accidentally dropped my phone in the pool, I lost everything. #neveragain
If you have questions, just go watch the video!!! Everything will be explained and you will ADD TO CART so fast. Each drive holds 8,000 photos and videos too! Keep both for yourself, or keep one and gift one! The online video explains how it works on every phone and tablet. Amazing. The video also explains that how after the initial backup, when you use it the next time, it only backs up the new photos! How awesome!
