Gift Ideas you may not have thought of!

OK so to me the PERFECT gift (or at least one of them) to give someone, especially when they’re hard to buy for is to think of something that would really simplify their life that they’d just never think to buy for themselves.  I LOVE when someone buys one of those for me and then all year long whenever I use it I think of them and feel grateful and loved. So I have been really trying to gather up some of those goodies to share for those of you who are just stumped with some of your gift list:) Most on the list are from Amazon so you know you can 2 day it and get it in plenty of time! (I;ve hardly stepped into a store this season because of the beautiful Christmas Miracle that is Prime)


The Cell Phones Best friends – cause we all have them:

Everyone has that person. And as much as it drives you nuts when you’re trying to get a hold of them it probably drives them even more nuts that their phone is worthless have the time! What they need is a plan B. in the form of a portable charger! There’s a bunch to choose from at a pretty wide range of prices. This one is pretty and sleek and got some pretty great reviews.

On the other hand some people are very diligent about charging their phone but they still use the stock cord that came with it. Which is roughly 4 inches long and often requires ninja mastery to locate and use the outlet whilst still having any access to it. A longer cord is probably something they never thought of but will TOTALLY appreciate and use always.

OK hear me out! A selfie stick is one of those things you might (or probably do) make fun of and many peple would never actually buy but the cold hard fact of the matter is – they come in handy! This is a great gift cause you can laugh, they can laugh and then they can actually use it and realize how great it is all at once.
Kind of like a snuggie:)


If you’ve ever owned a real pair of Uggs you know the unmistakeable comfort you feel every time they collide with your feet. SOme people would never buy them because all they think of when they hear Ugg is the Paris hilton Ugg & booty shorts days, but that’s really not all they have to offer!

Neck Pillow HEAVEN
This thing is the ULTIMATE comfort gift. It smells like Applesauce cookies and chai and makes you feel like you at a spa. You pop it in the microwave and then around your neck.

A candle isn’t necessarily the most unique gift idea but one that is as beautiful and smells as delicious as this one definitely will make your giftee happy.

Seriously. I want one of these SO BAD. And I’m pretty sure everyone I know wouldn’t mind having a neck massage available to them at all times! This would be a gift that truly keeps on giving.

You wouldn’t give this one to just any body but if you’ve got someone in your life you likes to laugh but who also wouldn’t mind having a bathroom tool that’ll make everything run a little smoother this has their name on it. Check out the reviews people LOVE IT!

    The squatty potty is truly amazing. My sister got me into it. I’m a cheapskate environmentalist so just using a stool I already had but it is life changing.

      For real? My boyfriend has been obsessed with these ever since I showed him the commercial, I think he’s too embarrassed to actually buy one!

    Ummm…. Did anyone else read that last one and immediately go to Amazon to find out what a squatty potty is? I read the reviews, and it’s pretty hilarious. I’d like to give it as a white elephant gift except it really sounds like it works!! 🙂

    I always love getting people candles for Christmas! I feel like it’s something everyone loves, but a lot of people don’t want to spend the money on them!

    My favorite thing to get people are experiences. I usually scope out living social or groupon and see what jumps out at me especially if it’s something we can do together. It makes a memory and it’s something that is out of the ordinary. My sister and I did flying trapeze one year and this year I’m taking a horseback riding class with my mom. Experiences are the best for adults who tend to buy themselves whatever they want but they are great for kids too because most kids want to spend time with you anyways.
