Last Minute Gift Ideas for Hubby, Kids, or Mama in Time for Christmas!

Are you still searching for last minute gifts for Christmas? I’ve rounded up a bunch of items for your hubby, kids, or even for your wife or girl in your life that are guaranteed to make it to your doorstep before Christmas! But quick, don’t wait any longer! You’ll need a few minutes to wrap ūüėČ Nearly everything on this list is under $50, and most under $20! I am actually really excited about these gift roundups. Most of these we either have or I bought this year (or I am saving the idea for my next excuse to buy a present!). Scroll down to see my picks. I have included links for easy shopping!

Hubby/Dad

 

popcorn maker / shoe horn / magnetic wristband / bluetooth headphones / ice ball maker / coffee mug / grill accessories / toiletry case / firepit

We are a big popcorn family. This popcorn maker would take the stress out of watching over your pot!

This was an actual request from my husband- a shoe horn. Save his back and get him one of these! And they are so inexpensive.

This magnetic wristband is BRILLIANT for any dude that is handy. He will love this! And how unique!

Almost every guy I know uses headphones for one use or another. Get your guy this  bluetooth pair and eliminate annoying tangling strings in his life!

Is your guy into making his own drinks at home? Even if he doesn’t drink alcohol, these ice ball makers are a fun addition to any glass!

Are you with a coffee drinker? Up his coffee mug game! This one is so nice looking and can be taken on the go.

Is your man the master of the grill? Check out this  grill accessories set! It is sure to please.

My husband uses his toiletry case every day. Since he travels a lot for work, it is easy to just store his things in it so he can grab and go! This  toiletry case is a great option.

What guy doesn’t like a fire? This portable firepit would be a perfect addition under your tree! And that fact that it is portable makes it zero commitment!

Kids

stable / cosmetic set / superhero book / tool set / bouncy horse / bath crayons / doodle pad / magformers / busy book (tons of different themes available!)

My oldest daughter is OBSESSED with horses (no surprise there!). This is such a cute little stable that she asked for, even though she already has one. This stable is so cute and also includes four horses. It is a great alternative to a dollhouse and a really good price!

The only way I can get ready in the morning is having my girls “get ready” with me. This cosmetic set is so perfect because they feel like they are actually doing their makeup, just without the mess!

What child doesn’t love superheros? This superhero book looks absolutely adorable. I love books or toys that encourage creative thinking and building up confidence!

This tool set is perfect for boys or girls. Screw stereotypes, all my kids play with our tool set! They love to build things and will pretend play with this foreverrrr.

My kids saw this bouncy horse at the mall one trip and they could NOT stop playing with it! They are very durable and bonus for parents, encourage active play (and tired babies!).

Do your kids love bathtime? Whether or not they do, these bath crayons are a great invention. It lets them make a controlled mess that is easily cleaned up! If your kids aren’t a fan of the bath, these will encourage some fun playtime during it!

My friend introduced me to these doodle pads and her children love them! And so did mine… they tried to steal theirs they loved them so much! Going on a car trip or airplane? These will keep them occupied forever!

These Magformers are a gift that they won’t get bored of. Let your child’s imagination run wild and build all sorts of cool things! These have amazing reviews too.

These busy books were actually something we bought for a friend on a whim for her birthday years ago and they were such a hit! Plus, they come in all sorts of themes for any show or character you could think of.

Mom/Wife

earrings / jewelry cleaner / touch screen gloves / beanie / tumbler / jewelry organizer / tile mate / candle / echo dot

What mom wouldn’t love a pair of classic earrings? This price is amazing for Kate Spade too!

This jewelry cleaner is one of those gifts she wouldn’t think to buy herself, but will love it! It is so useful and can be used to clean more than just jewelry too.

Even though I live in New England, I don’t have a great pair of gloves. These touch screen gloves would be a great gift and bonus, you can still use your devices with them on!

It is no surprise that I am a huge hat wearer (I’m looking at you, 5 day hair and 10 degrees outside!). This beanie is adorable and is fleece lined!

I don’t have a tumbler that I really love. This tumbler would be perfect for me! It works for hot or cold.

This jewelry organizer is another item that will blow her mind! It is so pretty but so functional.

This tile mate is more of a gift for anyone in your life in general. Do you know someone who loses their keys a lot? Or even their phone? This tile mate is a little device you attach to whatever item you lose and it helps you find it! Lose your phone and it’s on silent? It will make your phone ring for you so you can find it fast!

My absolute favorite candle scent is macintosh apple. It is just so fresh! Shopping for someone difficult? A candle is a safe gift you know she will love!

My love for Amazon runs deep. I have three of these Echo products in our house! These dots are so great to place all over your house so you are always connected to your music and lists or whatever you need! Need to set a timer for a time out? Speak to your dot and she will do it for you!

Gift Guide: What’s On My Christmas List – Home

Now that we are heading into our ninth (!!!) year of marriage and our second home together (sixth if you count every apartment too!), our home stash is getting a bit worn. Especially during our move this year, I had quite a few bowls break and other items not make it to the new house. I’ve been eyeing a couple other things to add to my collection too! Read on to see my picks for my Christmas list.

Lanterns These would be adorable on our front porch or sunroom! Or even the foyer. I will find a place!

Dutch Oven This has been on my list for a looong time. This one is much more affordable than the name brand option!

Candle Holders These are perfect! These would be great to add to a centerpiece on your dining table or on your mantle. Or to give as a hostess gift!

Robe I an an unashamed robe wearer all winter long. Its that perfect extra layer while the house warms up in the morning when I drink my coffee! My current robe is very tired, and this one looks so luxurious!

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up¬† I have been on a mission to organize and simplify my life. A lot of it has to do with parting with clutter and things that I don’t really enjoy. This book has such high reviews! I would love to read it to help me on my minimalist mission.

Crock Pot My crock pot was one of the first things we got as a married couple, but it has seen better days! This one is programmable and everything. It makes mine look ancient.

Cutting Board Can one have too many cutting boards? The answer is no.

Popcorn Maker I love homemade popcorn. Not the stuff in the little packet, the kernels you pop on the stove. This method can be tricky unless you are really watching it like a hawk and shaking the pot the entire time. And then kernels still get burnt. So I am thinking this would be a good investment!

Gold Bowls So many things got broken in our move, and my favorite white mixing bowls were one of them. Yet another original wedding present. I may have had a little funeral for it. These bowls are so classy and would make a suitable replacement!

What do you think? Which is your favorite item? What are you getting for your lady friend? Share below!

Gift Guide: What’s On My Christmas List – Fashion

It may come as a surprise to you, but I love clothes. Shocking, I know! But really, I went through a phase of about 5 years where I was basically pregnant or breastfeeding (read the post here) and as much as I love my babies and what my body did,  I needed a wardrobe overhaul. And it is still happening. Here are some things that are on my Christmas list that I am SUPER excited about! Husband, are you reading?..

 

 

Wool Turtleneck¬†So part of my mission with redoing my wardrobe was to mature it in the process. Turtlenecks aren’t something that was in my closet previously, but I can totally picture this paired with a vest and my beloved Hunter boots!

Necklace I am obsessed with this necklace! My daily jewelry tends to be more dainty and on the delicate side. This one is so cute and different!

Cashmere Sweater On trend with the updating my wardrobe trend, this is high on the list. Never have I ever invested in cashmere before! I love anything J Crew, so I am excited to add this to my closet.

Ruffle Front Plaid Shirt This is a fun spin on a normal plaid button up! The little ruffle gives it the cutest feminine edge. And the plaid is perfect!

Ripped Knee Jeans I invested in my first pair of high waisted jeans since my horseback riding days last week. You can say I am fully on board for this trend! These ripped knees are super cute too.

Pom pom hat Because yes, I need another hat.

Wubby Fleece Pullover Yes, another pullover. Each serves a different purpose, OK? The charcoal in this is perfect! According to the size chart, make sure you size up.

Sunglasses¬†I have a pair of “winter sunglasses” in navy (yes, there is such a thing in my book) but I would love to add a black pair to my collection! I love this brand.

Leggings¬†I know you’ve heard me talk about my undying love for Zella athletic wear! (Favorite leggings, favorite workout capris) I would love a long pair for outdoor winter running, and the cutouts on these are perfect!

So men, if you are reading, snoop in your lady’s closet and order her a few things on this list in her size! I love surprises, and she will be so touched with your thoughtfulness ūüėČ

Gift Guide: Men’s Stocking Stuffers

My husband is notoriously difficult to shop for. He has everything he needs, and if he doesn’t, he buys it. I mean he is easy in the way that he doesn’t need or want much, but its so tough to figure out what to get for his stocking stuffers! I rounded up some things that I am actually buying for my husband’s stocking. For some context, he is a Director of a company and travels quite a bit. Check out what is on my (his) list!

 

Dude Wipes¬†I feel like I wouldn’t be a good wife without a gag gift? This is one of those gag gifts he will actually use and enjoy. Just read the product description through the link and you’ll see…

Body Building Hair Gel¬†Ever since I met my husband 10 years ago, he has feared that he is balding. He isn’t. He is just blonde. Even so, this hair gel should help him out! Plus he loves this Jack Black brand.

Slim Credit Card Wallet My husband isn’t a fan of wallets. For the longest time he carried them around in his wallet with one of my hair bands… This one is nice and slim so I know he will love it!

Face Moisturizer This is that Jack Black brand he loves! He has and uses this, so why not replenish his stock?

Foaming Shave Gel I like to try and get him unique/nice things when I have a chance, and a stocking is the perfect excuse! This higher end shave gel is actually not expensive at all, and I am sure he will love it!

Sunglasses¬†I have a pair of this brand sunglasses already and I love them. They are sturdy and a great product, and inexpensive for the quality! Plus he tends to lose sunglasses…

Letter Opener My dad had a letter opener when I was a kid and I thought it was the coolest thing. I think you have officially reached adult status if you have one in your office.

3-in-1 Travel Product Since my husband travels a lot, this is a winner! This is one of his favorite brands, and why not combine all your toiletry needs into one product? Less to pack!

Cashmere Scarf¬†As much as my husband doesn’t spend money on himself, he does like nice things. This scarf is a bargain for being cashmere! I can see him wearing this all through winter. And repeating “I love my wife” all day long as he wears it…

So those are my big choices! I will probably throw in some candy bars, gum, and lottery tickets just for fun. What was your favorite? Did I miss anything? Let me know below!
