Ladies, Christmas is upon us. Now is the time to grab all of those last minute gifts that most of us still need! 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!
AMAZON ITEMS WE OWN THAT MAKE EXCELLENT GIFTS
First thing today, I’m featuring items from Amazon THAT WE OWN. I can personally vouch for the items, and I can confidently say that they will 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 ON SALE! / 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 / This bag is 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 / Would you like to tighten your chin up? #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 50,000 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 95% 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 $199.99 for both pairs! 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”.
MEN’S GIFT GUIDE
And here’s a gift guide dedicated solely to the men in our lives! I find them to be sooooo hard to buy for, do you?
The soft-shell jacket is right at $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. 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 always a fantastic gift idea. Carter and Chris both have a G Shock and wear them every single day. The hammock is actually what we got Carter last year. We take it to the ranch and we all love it. It’s a big hit!
men’s soft shell jacket / zip up fleece / Jack Black collection / duffle bag options / moccasin slipper / wallet options / tire pressure gauge / watch options / portable rocking chair / portable hammock / phone docking station / personalized pocket knife
I can’t remember if I got this slim wallet for Chris for Christmas, for his birthday, or for Father’s Day… but he absolutely LOVES it. He says it’s a great slim size, but still holds everything he needs. He was so tired of his big wallet, and this was the perfect answer. The other side is a peek-a-boo window where he keeps his license.
It’s under $20, so even if you think you already have everything for your guy, go ahead and add this too! He’ll love it!
MORE GREAT GIFT IDEAS…
LOOK HOW CUTE these bracelets are! These stacks are two of my most worn pieces of jewelry, so I know they would make excellent gifts! You know the gold bracelet stack is one of my favorite Amazon purchases of the year, and I think it looks awesome stacked with the beaded bracelets too.
And here’s some more jewelry that is all super giftable…
When I first realized last month that I could get Ink+Alloy on Amazon, I freaked out! I think their stuff is so unique and beautiful. Check it all out HERE. The pic below shows some of my current jewelry favorites from Amazon that are all perfect for now as well as heading into fall.
If you weren’t able to get my keyring bracelet deal with Accessory Concierge, this one below is a great option!
The brighter multicolor stripes option arrives before Christmas.
TONS OF SANTA ALERTS
I have a ton of Santa Alerts for y’all today! You’ve seen many of these before, but I thought it would be super helpful to bring them all together in one place!
This 15-piece Cuisinart knife set is 25% OFF and there’s around 10,000 5 STAR REVIEWS. This set is beautiful.
These fuzzy slippers are all the rage and ON SALE. I have them and love them. They have a hard sole, so you can wear them outside with no issues. These are super popular with teens too.
A pair of classic gold hoop earrings is always a good idea, especially for under $15.
This backpack purse comes in lots of colors and is great for a mama that likes to be hands free.
These pajama pants for men are only $18 and comes in tons of color options. I mean, these are a no brainer to throw under the tree.
Chris and Carter both love their G Shock watches, and this one is a great one.
If you’re an expectant mama, maybe you need to put this Nanit Smart Baby Monitor on your list. It’s pricey, but the reviews speak for themselves.
These are my favorite pajamas and they make an excellent gift.
This quarter zip fleece pullover has fantastic ratings, and this one and the red one scream holiday to me. Read the reviews. They all talk about how super cozy and warm they are.
This sweatshirt is great for men, and it’s just UNDER $20! I know this is something that Chris will wear constantly, and I’m always looking for another gift to put under the tree for him.
And how great is this puffer for ladies! It’s ON SALE, it has over 17,000 5 Star Reviews and comes in several colors. Read the reviews, I think you probably want to size up.
When I asked the office for sunscreen recommendations from my dermatologist a couple of years ago, this EltaMD sunscreen was the one they most highly recommended. And looks at those 5 Star reviews! In fact, now there’s almost 40,000!
Check out this mask sheet set. It comes in a set of 10, the ratings are great, and the packaging is adorable! Wrap up the entire set and put it under the tree…or separate them out into different stockings! There’s another really awesome set HERE as well.
This foot peel mask will give you baby soft feet and it’s ON SALE. It has over 60,000 5 STAR REVIEWS! SIXTY THOUSAND! Peel your feet and make them feel like a baby’s tushy with these babies! Grab them for yourself right now (the results are both disgusting and sooooooo satisfying) or throw them in stocking stuffers for a gift that will make everybody oooh and ahhhhh!
This hand cream trio comes in this super cute decorative tin. There are several patterns and scent trios to choose from.
Okay, ladies. I have this exact set of packing cubes and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them. I got the deep blue (seen below). They’re on sale right now AND there’s an additional 20% OFF coupon you can “clip”.
This is the first set of packing cubes I have that has 2 zippers on each cube. Look how much the 2nd zipper shrinks it all down! INCREDIBLE!
This jewelry travel bag is awesome too and also ON SALE. It’s the best travel jewelry organizer I’ve ever had (and I’ve tried MANY throughout the years). It does a beautiful job of keeping the necklaces from getting tangled, and there’s plenty of places for rings, earrings, and bracelets.
My toiletry bag is one of my favorite Amazon finds EVER. It holds SO MUCH STUFF, and I love how you can hang it up and everything is so easily accessible. It has almost 50,000 5 Star Ratings and could probably be at your house by this afternoon.
I have this Tyler Glamorous Gift Set and love it. It has 3 different scents of mini laundry detergents and 3 different candle scents and votives. Now, I think these detergents are way too strong to use the full amount, so I use my regular unscented detergent with just a splash of one of the Tyler detergents.
I grabbed this men’s travel toiletry bag for my brother-in-law last year and he loves it!
My girlfriend Lori recommended this brush to me a couple of years ago, I ordered it immediately, and I fell in love! I use it every single day. It’s a detangler brush and it fits PERFECTLY into myhand. It seems like I’m being dramatic, but it really feels like aerodynamic or something when you’re holding it. Haha!
These Under Armour undies are loved by teen boys.
These Adidas slides are ON SALE and one of Carter’s favorite pair of slides. They are sooooooooo cushy and comfy, and we replace them every single time he grows out of them.
I know all you moms out there are fielding questions from all of your family members right now on what they can get your kids. I sent the link for this bluetooth spaker / alarm clock / night light to my mom to grab for Carter last year. It was a hit!
hiking boots 50% OFF
quarter zip pullover – kind of a luxury gift
I had a special Sunday post last year where I featured the Ninja CREAMI. We are having so much fun making frozen yogurt, ice cream, and sorbet! The machine is so easy to use, and the final product is sooooooooooooo creamy!
If you have kids, this is the Toniebox that everybody says is THE BEST TOY EVER.
This cross necklace is so pretty in person and is under $15.
These rattan boxes would look lovely in most homes and are 55% OFF right now.
A cozy blanket is a wonderful gift for just about everybody on your list.
COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD FLASH SALE
There’s a Colleen Rothschild FLASH SALE going on right now, and lots of great gift items are included!
Gifts and Travel Sets are all included and on SUPER SALE.
The boxes that these sets come in are so cute, so festive, and totally giftable!
The Kiss and Tell Lip Care Trio is all about lip care, and I love all 3 products in this kit. This kit would make a fabulous gift! The set includes the following:
- Vitamin E Lip Moisturizer – Brown Sugar
- Sugar Lip Scrub – Brown Sugar
- Butter Lip Mask – Brown Sugar
- Velvet Pouch
It’s a $110 value, typically offered for $75, and right now you can get it for ONLY $44 (that’s 41% OFF). If you have issues with dry lips, this kit is a MUST. You exfoliate with the lip scrub, hydrate at night with the lip mask, and then use the lip moisturizer (I keep it in my purse) whenever you need it. THE SCENT IS DIVINE. Your lips will love this kit.
The Discovery Kit is one of their very best deals, especially right now. It’s 43% OFF!
If you already know and love the brand, this kit is great because it makes traveling with your favorite products super easy.
OR if you’re new to the brand (or just want to try some new products), this Discovery Kit is a great option for you too. It contains many of their most popular products and would be a great way to give them all a try! I’ve had many readers say that after giving the Discovery Kit a shot, they are now loyal users.
The kit includes the following:
- Radiant Cleansing Balm
- Dual Enzyme Polish
- Clarifying Detox Mask
- Sheer Renewal Cream
- Extreme Recovery Cream
- Face Oil N°9
- Muslin Cleansing Cloth
- And an exclusive CR Travel Bag
While I think of the above Discovery Kit as being great for those of us with more mature skin, I think of the Exploration Collection as being good for people with younger skin. In fact, I bought this kit this year for Carter to try the products out, and he’s having great success with the gel, toner, and scrub. At 15, he was starting to struggle with breakouts here and there, and these products have really helped to clear them up. And it’s 41% OFF.
The 5-pc kit contains…
- Balancing Gel Cleanser
- Matcha Tea Treatment Toner
- Intense Hydrating Mask
- Micro-Mineral Resurfacing Scrub
- CR Ultra-Soft Headwrap
- And an exclusive CR Travel Bag
These products are great for men too.
The Quench and Shine Travel Hair Essentials Set is just as awesome as the skin travel kits. I don’t love the CR shampoo (my mom does), but I LOVE EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE KIT. Also 41% OFF.
After using these products your hair will smell amazing and you will love the way it both looks and feels.
If you’re already obsessed with the skin care, I highly recommend you give the hair care products a try, and this kit is a great way to do it!
What’s Included in the Set:
- Quench & Shine Restorative Shampoo
- Replenish & Shine Daily Conditioner
- Quench & Shine Restorative Mask
- Smooth & Shine Hair Serum

My mom actually did a full review of her favorite products awhile back, and you can click HERE to read all of her thoughts. She actually turns 76 today! Or is it 77? I can’t remember, but it doesn’t really matter, because she looks 57.
If you want to buy anything that’s not included in the flash sale, make sure you use the code STMT20 for 20% OFF.
LAST CHANCE FOR OUR PLACE DEALS!
I know I’ve talked about these Our Place products a lot recently, but I HAVE TO one more time. Think of it as a Public Service Announcement. The Always Pan, The Perfect Pot and the knife set all make absolutely excellent gifts.
This is the very last day you can grab the Always Pan for ONLY $105. I gave it as a gift to my mom and MIL a couple of years ago, and they both loved it. Click HERE if you want to review the post where I review it in detail.
This knife trio bundle is another really great gift idea and is on SUPER SALE for $99 (regularly $170). I have all three knives, they are all amazing, and the bundle pricing is shocking. I know soooooooooooo many people on my list that would love this gift. Click HERE to get to the post where I review them.
All of these items make EXCELLENT gifts. In fact, there are several people on my list who are going to get the Oven Pan this year. It’s currently the most used item in my kitchen, so I want to share it with everybody!
- Always Pan – Regularly $150, on sale for $105!!!
- Perfect Pot – Regularly $165, on sale for $125!!!
- Home Cook Duo – (Always Pan + Perfect Pot) $315 value on sale for $215!!!
- Ovenware Set – Regularly $195, on sale for $165!!!
- Oven Pan – NOW SOLD SEPARATELY! Regularly $125, on sale for $105!!!
If you want gifts that aren’t quite so pricey, I highly recommend their new cutting boards and their new kitchen shears.
I used the new Daily Board ($35 right now!) and the new Shear Genius kitchen shears ($25) to prep the chives and the Everyday Chef’s Knife ($15 OFF) to prep the parsley for the carrots. They all come packaged very nicely in Our Place boxes, ready to wrap and put under the tree.
That’s all, y’all! If you were still in need of a gift or two, I hope this post was helpful! Have a great weekend with your people!
