Happy November friends! Thanksgiving is approaching this month, which means Christmas will be here before we know it! 7 weeks to be exact. SEVEN. Que shopping and cooking anxiety. I can’t stand to fight the crowds during the holidays. To make it a little easier I start picking up quick gifts now. I especially love finding them on Amazon, because hello free 2 day shipping.
Starting shopping now also helps me keep on budget. I have found all of these goodies under $50. I love thinking of gifts for friends and colleagues that they usually wouldn’t buy for themselves. For example, I personally have been eyeballing a few kitchen gadgets lately but just can’t bring my self to spend the money on them. I can’t tell you how many times I pick up items for my self and then talk my self out of them. So, getting them for a gift is always so exciting.
One thing I love to gift to my cooking friends are cookbooks. I rarely buy them for my self, because uhm it’s 2016 and it’s free to Pinterest or Google them. There is something though about a physical book in front of you. Plus, they are great to sit out for decoration when you aren’t using them. Everyone can use them or candles. They are always sure to be a win.
Happy shopping! Cross your friends, mother-in-laws, and coworkers off your list now and save some stress later.
