It is the Sunday before Christmas and pretty much crunch time to get those gifts ordered and wrapped up for everyone on your list.
This year, I have hardly been to the stores to shop- and so have done most of my shopping online – which honestly, might be the new way to shop all.the.time. It is so much easier.
I also didn’t want to do the traditional wrapping paper this year- and have had a lot of questions about that pretty paper from a few recent posts- so am spilling the beans on a very inexpensive wrapping paper idea today.
I tried to grab a few ideas for several categories- and honestly, linked much of what I have been loving and gifting this year. Hopefully my family won’t read this post until AFTER Christmas. 🙂

Of course, what kind of an author would I be if I didn’t encourage you to give my books as gifts? Both of my books are on major sale at Amazon- just $21 and $26
But also a lot of my friends have books out as well and they would be wonderful books for gifting too- you can see all the recommended books for gifting in this post 45 Books to Read while staying home
My son got me one of these for my birthday- and it is literally the best thing for staying cozy all day. I have even slept in it- it is seriously that warm and cozy. It reminds me of when I was a little girl and would wear my dads sweatshirts – so good. I literally ordered one for pretty much everyone this year- including the grown up boys.
I ordered some of this scrub over the summer and was beyond impressed when it arrived – really the best I have found. It is perfect for gifting.
For those who love spa treatments and beauty products- this scrub is amazing. I had been using a similar but 3x more expensive microdermabrasion scrub- and bumped into this one and decided to try it. I am hooked.
Candles are always a great gift idea – they can be enjoyed all winter long while we stay cozy indoors.
And a comfy throw is always on the list as well.
For the Guys
I am loving comfort gifts this year all around- so a warm robe and slippers for the men is on the list.
I am also loving novelty socks, knit sweaters and smoker or grill cookbooks.
For all that Wrapping
I am going in a totally different direction for wrapping paper this year. All year long I have been wrapping the books I sell in my shop in butcher paper and twine – and decided to grab several colors of butcher paper and use them for gift wrap.
I also grabbed a pale green masking paper (think paint protection) and it is so pretty (and economical) as well.
Happy shopping all!
