HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: $25 and under

 

Happy Saturday! Did you know that it is 14 days until Christmas? That’s only two shopping weeks left. I hope you are all getting your Christmas shopping done early this year and not leaving it until the couple of weeks before, like me. But to be honest with you and it may not come as a surprise, but I LOVE shopping so I don’t mind taking it slow and finding the right gift as I come across it for the right person.

 

One thing that is very helpful with Christmas shopping is doing research prior online for gifts. It is easy to just go and pick it up in stores, but nowadays stores have so many great promotions going on online during the Holidays that you can usually find whatever you need for less online including free shipping. This is nice because it saves you the hassle of braving the cold and the crowd and I always love it when I receive a package at my door steps. Have I also mentioned money saving websites like Ebates or My Lucky Rewards and Shop At Home? Not only can you find useful coupons on these sites, but you can also get money back with each purchase you make online. All you have to do is set up a free account with either of these sites and before you make a purchase you go to either of these websites and search for the online store you are making your purchase from. If the store is listed, it will show what percentage of your purchase you get back. You then click on the link that leads to the online store and continue checking out like normal. That’s all you have to do. Sometimes its not much back, like 3% or something and other times it is 12%, so some stores are worth it more then others. I like Ebates the best because they offer the largest selection of stores, usually have the highest percentage back, and also mails out checks faster then the other sites. You can also set up your PayPal if you have one through Ebates and they will just deposit it into your PayPal account to use. It is so convenient! I still like using the other sites because they offer some stores that Ebates does not have and also a higher percentage cash back sometimes, especially with Shop At Home. This is just something I found earlier this year and I love using it. It saves me a little money here and there and all I have to do is to take an extra step and shop through these sites.

 

Well, here is a little Gift Guide with everything priced at $25 or less. I’m a little behind on these, so please forgive me. This is my favorite time of year and I have so much going on. This Gift Guide is perfect for friends, co-workers, as stocking stuffer, or white elephant gifts. These are a few of my favorite things and they are mainly for all the lovely women in your life. I think that each item is an amazing find, especially for $25 or less. Those Kate Spade Polka Dot Coasters in particular are fabulous and that Merona gold watch too. What a steal right? Isn’t it great that Jonathan Adler offers such wonderful chic gifts for such a great price? Love Love that umbrella. I also adore those Penguin Hardcover Classics Book. My favorite one is Pride & Prejudice of course! Mike got me several of them as our paper gift for our first year anniversary and I absolutely love them. I want every single book that they have, but I need to finish reading all the ones I have first. They are just very beautifully designed covers that are so sweet. I plan on having these forever and passing them on to my kids. Not only are these books classic stories that will be continued to read and loved by everyone for years to come, but they also have a special meaning for us. I am sure any friend would love to receive one of these book. Especially if you know what their favorite book is. Enjoy!
