Hi friend! How’s your week going? I sent Jordan to school yesterday all ready for her field trip (special outfit & sack lunch), only to find out it’s Thursday. Oops! I swear, I try to be so organized and on top of things, but stuff still falls through the cracks! Have you had any of those mishaps lately?
Today, I’m excited to share my weekly Just Sales post, AND bring you the first of several holiday gift guides I’m working on. I’ve heard from many of you that want to get your shopping done early so you don’t have to stress about inventory, shipping delays, and sell outs.
I’m with you! I’m starting my Christmas shopping now and hope to have it done with plenty of time to spare so I can sit back and relax. December is always busy anyway, so having the gifts bought early will bring satisfying relief!
My first gift guide has Gifts for Her Under $30. I was thinking about how we love to get a little something for our friends, mom, mother-in-law, teachers and other special ladies in our lives, but we also have to keep our budgets in mind. Thoughtful gifts don’t have to be expensive, and often the sentiment given with the gift is what means the most.
I’m also including Gifts for Kids and all of the things I’m recommending are toys that are played with on a regular basis at our house. I know I’m usually stressing until the kids’ gifts are complete!
You’ll find the gift guides below, just after the sales!

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
Battleship • This is a game we all enjoy playing. Usually my 5 year-old will be on a team with me – she loves placing the ships into position and saying “hit” or “miss” and my 11 year-old will be on his own team.
Lego • My daughter has graduated to the smaller lego pieces and it’s really incredible the things she creates.
Monopoly • An old favorite and when I play with my 5 year-old, we don’t use the money, we just collect the property cards.
Scrabble • Great for learning and it’s always funny to see what words kids come up with.
Clue • My son and I like to play this game, it’s fun for adults too!
Guess Who • We definitely have fun playing Guess Who and have a couple different versions of this game.
XBox • When my son found his XBox downstairs, he said, “Mom, you know I still play with that- I hope you’re not donating it!” I had to explain I was taking pictures for my blog. He’s had it since 2019 and plays it often.
Similar Paw Patrol Tower • This was Jordan’s big gift from Santa last year and she plays with it all the time. It’s always what our neighbor kids gravitate towards when they come over.
Magna Tiles • I really like these creative type toys and don’t mind playing magna tiles with the kids too.
Busy Town • This is a board game even littler ones can play because it involves searching for items and everyone acts as a team.
LOL Surprise Dolls • Jordan loves these little surprise gifts! And the accessories are so cute!
Now onto some gifts for her. Can you even believe how similar this leopard throw blanket looks to the Barefoot Dreams?! It’s just as soft, but a little bit smaller. The Barefoot Dreams is originally $180, and this one is under $50! I have a feeling it will go fast!
And the fuzzy slippers are such a cozy gift. They fit TTS.
This Capri candle is one of my favorite scents and makes a lovely gift. It has a fresh aroma and also comes in a pink or blue jar. They carry it at Anthropologie, but I found it on Amazon Prime, arriving same day!

gifts for her under $30
1 • I’ve already gotten hooked on the Olaplex shampoo, conditioner, and No. 9, now I’m excited to try the hair oil. If you have a friend that rarely pampers herself, this would be a great treat since we all love good hair days.
2 • For only $15, you get the initial pendant necklace and a layering necklace to go with it. I’ve worn mine a ton and it’s still in great shape.
3 • Who doesn’t like fuzzy slippers?! They come in several colors and fit TTS.
5 • These gold beaded bracelets are on a stretchy band, so they fit easily over your wrist. The set of five is under $16 and they sell for much more at other retailers.
6 • The infinity scarf it back! It’s a great layering piece and the cream cable knit goes with everything! Just $10.
7 • A pour over coffee maker is a lovely ritual for starting the day and this sleekly designed one is under $20.
8 • Ecotools makeup brushes are handcrafted with eco friendly materials, 100% vegan and cruelty free. In this set, you get an angled foundation brush, blending brush, defined crease brush, angled liner brush, full blush brush and a storage tray. It’s on sale and has over 13,000 positive reviews.
9 • I was so crazy for these double wall insulated coffee mugs that I bought several sets. They keep your drink hot and are great quality.
10 • I think everyone should have a pair of Colorfulkoala leggings in their closet. They are so comfortable with a high waist that tucks you in, but doesn’t constrict and they have side pockets. I wear mine all the time for working out.
