Psst....I have no brain but thanks to Foxy's Domestic Side for reminding me that today is a link-up :) Oh heavens send a brain stat! Make sure to link up below with your favorite gifts to give!!!
The weather has chilled significantly, we have had a hard frost and we are knee deep in Christmas planning around here. I don't know about you, but sometimes adults can be the hardest to buy for. Often, when shopping for my sister and friends, I think about what I love and what I use and then shop accordingly! It never fails, I have an internal battle to buy one for someone else and one for myself ;). Anyone else?
I love a good gift card but there is something so meaningful about an item hand-picked for you, but that can be harder than it sounds. Especially, when you have several hard to buy for people on your list. So, today I am sharing 10 gifts I either have or would love to receive. Some are simply luxuries and some are practical. What's on your Christmas list this year?
1. Bracelet Stacks
You all know I love some bracelets. They instantly up the ante even when paired with gift idea #2. My friend Ellie In Her Element
makes the most beautiful bracelets including stamped and personalized ones. If you type in tribekoko at checkout, you will get 15% off until December 1st.
She will be accepting orders until December 15th with guarenteed by Christmas delivery. (This is not sponsored, I just love supporting fellow women!).
Make sure to follow her on Instagram.
2. Comfy clothes
It's winter and we all just want to be cozy
. I love a good sweatshirt and Amazon has some darling ones right now including the one pictured above
for $18 (cough cough sweet hubby). I also love this one
for under $8!
My dear friend bought me one from Bath and Body Works that I loved. Nothing says cozy and winter like a good smelling candle burning in your home! My insta-friend Tavia
also shared that the new Bath and Body Works coffee candle is delightful, if you love coffee, which I do!
All Bath and Body Works 3 wick candles are on sale for $12.50 right now! Attach a gift card and give to your favorite friend, teacher or co-worker :). If you can't burn candles, I love these
so you can enjoy the scent without a flame.
4. Cordless Vacuum
Y'all are going to laugh, but I asked for a Dyson cordless vacuum
(I got the $249.99 version) for my birthday and I adore it. We have hardwood floors and my other vacuum never had enough suction to do the job so inevitably I spent every evening sweeping.
I can vacuum the entire kitchen in under 10 minutes and if I am feeling extra energetic, I can turn the suction down with a simple press of the button, and vacuum the living room while I am at it. I put our other vacuum in the basement and have not touched it once since we got this one. I know not everyone is into getting appliances as gifts but practically speaking, this is life changing #notoversellingit.
I received this wallet
as a gift. I have had it for about 2 years and it is still going strong. I can carry it as a clutch and fit my phone inside one of the compartments. It comes in a lot of colors and has plenty of room for loyalty cards, a spot in the middle for frequently used cards and such.
6. Stainless Steel Tumbler
Once I started drinking my coffee and hot tea in a stainless steel tumbler, I can't drink it any other way. I take it with me on trips, that is how much I love it. My friend Heather from Oh My Glitter
has the cutest vinyl decals
to put on a tumbler which makes it such a darling Christmas gift for all your favorite women in your lives!
It is such a simple, sweet indulgence to throw in a stocking or wrap up with some cute towels like the new Hearth & Hand towels
. I especially love Mrs. Meyer's
and J.R. Watkins Soaps
. Both can be found at Target and often go on sale or have a Cartwheel coupon! You don't have to look too far on Pinterest to find a cute printable
to affix to your soap for a cute Christmas gift!
8. Gel Nail Polish
I have been loving a gel nail polish top coat
. Even with all the dishes and chores, my nail polish stays on so much better. You could even include a pedicure, manicure or massage gift card with some nail polishes! I am especially loving navy
nail polishes right now! I love Essie, OPI and Julep
brands. I also love this gel top coat
for under $5.
I spend a lot of time at home and I hate having cold feet. A nice pair of warm slippers would make a great gift this Christmas. You can find darling slippers at any price point!
10. Personalized Signs
Do you have a favorite scripture verse, quote or motto that you live by, maybe even a love letter written by your spouse or your child. My friend Tara at Adamo Design DSM
is amazing at making beautiful signs. All holiday orders need to be made by November 18th.
You could have all your family's important dates on a sign or all the places you have lived. The options are endless but a beautiful sign would be such a sweet, thoughtful, personal gift this Christmas.
Don't forget about these ideas too --
Personalized Photo Gifts
Each year I make a photo phone case for my mom and myself. I have always used Shutterfly
. I normally use a coupon and so they make a great and affordable gift! My dad loves the photo collage coffee mugs too! There is always cute photo stationary you can make for grandparents and relatives!
Until next time, keep on keeping on with an intentional, joyful, faith-filled life. #tribekoko
