Making Your List and Checking It Twice

I'm desperately trying to ignore the coffee table behind me right now that is stacked high with unwrapped presents and stocking stuffers. It's a MAY-ESS.

And still, I find myself jotting down notes of last-minute gift ideas I need to pick up before the weekend. Thank goodness for hour-long lunchbreaks and Amazon Prime.

If you're like me and you are still looking for some gifts, here are some ideas from me to you. Most of these are between $10-20 so they will not break the bank and make us even more stressed out this time of year than we already are. :)

For A New Mom
We love all of her books, but this one is next on our list. I do the ugly cry when I read them. Click the link and then click "Listen" underneath the book image and see if it doesn't bring a tear to your eye. No matter how old you are or what stage of life you are in, I think you will see how magical this book is. 


For A Husband/Boyfriend
Whiskey Ice Ball Maker (or really any kind of cocktails)
Slow-dissolving ice formation ensures that your Maker's Mark doesn't get watered down. God forbid.


For A Mother In Law
Southern Living or Real Simple subscription
You can even buy the December issue and attach a little card to the front saying that she has 12 more issues heading her way!


For A Best Friend
Proud big sister here :) Etsy shop owned by my sister.

Beige Ten Tassel Necklace


For The Baby
Shhhh.... this is under our tree as we speak! A $10 investment in our future Beethoven-ette.



To Slip In Your Own Stocking
I read recently that everyone should wear an eye mask to ensure good sleep. Sooo ... doctor's orders. Right?!

  6. I'm so glad you put an eye mask on your list because it reminds me that I would like to get one! I used them in college to block out a bright light outside of my apartment window and I think it would still help me sleep better.

  9. Love Nancy Tillman books so much. Goodness. Also, thinking I may need to try this whole Amazon Prime thing. It sounds pretty amazing - I think I've been missing out.
