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?!


  1. great pics, oh that whiskey ball, could I put that on my list? ;) cute.

  2. I just got the whiskey ice ball maker for my BIL - hope he likes it :) xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  3. Oh I love all those books too---we love the spirit of christmas! And I wear a sleeping mask every night...too funny!

  4. Great list! I just bough that book for a friend - who's a new mom!!! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I bought Ted the ice ball maker... I almost forgot about it because I hid it haha. Great list!

  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.

  7. Buying that piano for Caroline and ice cube thingy for Matt riiiiiight now. Thanks.

  8. i might need to get those whiskey balls for someone...

  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.

  10. Such a great idea on the magazine subscription! Since Christmas has passed, maybe a future birthday present for the MIL.
