It's down to the wire! The few days before Christmas you may still be stumped on what to get for that hard to shop for person on your list. People like to ask me about ideas on just about anything which I love to share. Here is a guide of my top favorite gift ideas you can still get in time for Christmas. Feel free to send this blog post to your Santa Claus!
ECHO AUTO By Amazon. -$34 Reg $49.99- ECHO ANYTHING really. Right now, there are the 12 days of Christmas Promotions on Amazon.com Every day there are new deals chock full of awesomeness you didn't know you HAVE TO HAVE! On my list is the Echo Auto and 4 months of Amazon Music Unlimited FREE w/ auto-renewal $49.99also see the accessories like the Car Mount $9.99, The Remote Control, The Clock, I can go on and on...I love these little gadgets!
WEMO SMART PLUGS SET Wemo Mini Smart Plug$65 REG $84.99 This is a great deal, and you can never have enough. I have Alexa turn-off and on my Christmas Tree and Penn State Snowman outside the same time every day. I use these at the office to boss Alexa around to turn on my lights, fans and play some music!
Fire TV Stick 4K streaming device with Alexa built-in, Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, includes the Alexa Voice Remote We recently got rid of cable and saved around $400 per month by adding a similar device to all of the TVs in the house. Thanks to Black Friday Deals we were able to get a few of them. We have the Youtube TV Service with Disney+ now and I highly recommend it! I wish we could've done it sooner! More on that on another blog post-
TCL 40S325 40 Inch 1080p Smart LED Roku TV (2019)$179.99 You might recognize the TV from Lucky Cat Beauty Studio. Not only is it the best little smart tv on the planet-it's the best seller and customer-rated TV at Walmart. Its sturdy enough to be our outside tv of choice for the patio! Its such a great deal and I probably will buy this brand of tv over and over-
SCULPTO PRO2 3D PRINTER $449.99 this started out as a Kickstarter Campaign (how I
launched Lucky Cat Beauty too)-You can now have a commercial quality 3D Printer at home that’s affordable and compact. Fully integrated with Thingiverse, the Sculpto+ is able to print models with just a few clicks in the Sculpto app. I thought the best thing since sliced bread was my Cricut Machine..then I saw THIS! Polaroid also makes one and these compact 3D Printers are a game-changer. You can create your own jewelry, napkin rings, bobbleheads, I can literally think of a zillion things I would make with this thing. I am already brainstorming for a blog post later on this-
Tile Mate (2018) - 4 Pack$36 Normally 25each or 69$ I don't think you could ever have enough of these puppies. It's like the PING my phone function of the iWatch. I love that this pack of 4 makes them more affordable too. LITERALLY stick them everywhere to locate frequently misplaced items, makeup kits, pets, hide one in your kid's car under the mat-you know what I mean.
UGG Women's W Fluff FLIP Flop III Slipper, Grey, 8 M US$79.95 The bipolar weather in Texas these can be very handy. Part slipper, part cozy sandal makes total sense. People still like to poke fun at the UGG but that person has probably never put a pair on before. Try them, you will go to the BASIC BITCH DARKSIDE WITH ME!
Apple AirPod Pro These little things have been life-changing for me! The upside to these is never having to untangle that damn core ever again-the downside is they may fall out or worse, one gets lost. I highly recommend these to anyone on your shopping list! The noise-canceling feature levels up the handy earbuds and have a longer battery life than the basic AirPods. I recommend you get the Apple Care from the authorized dealer so you can replace them if anything should happen to them. Trust me, everyone would love a pair. You can't go wrong here!
Well, I could go on and about the art of gift-giving. Often an experience, act of service instead of an object or a handmade present may be a winning gift for the person who has it all-
- Last year I started hand-making gifts. I really love to customize something for someone and personalize it. I hit the jackpot this year and found some great blank coffeemugs, dish towels and wine glasses. Using my Cricut Machine, I cut out iron-on transfers and vinyl with cute sayings on them for my friends & family . You can never beat a framed photo, a monogrammed hand towel, a Yeti with their name on it...the best gifts can be something that shows you really thought about them and appreciate the person. Now that is PRICELESS! Happy Holidays xx love Aubrie
