Holy cow! Thanksgiving 2016 has left the building and now it's time to get busy buying the perfect gifts for all of the special people in your life. Unless you're one of THOSE people, who have already finished shopping, and maybe even your gift wrapping, then you might want to skip this. #TooOrganized
I used to be of the mindset that it was more fun to wait until the season was officially in full swing before going holiday shopping. I was the loon who pretended to enjoy circling the mall parking lot for a quarter of my day until I found a parking spot two miles away. I'd tell myself that walking from the car to the mall in frigid temperatures was good exercise, and that the cold brisk wind would make my cheeks rosy. It also made my nose red, but I chose to ignore that little factoid. I also found it exhilarating to bump elbows with pushy strangers, to wait in long lines with screaming children and their frazzled parents, and to get overheated and feel my shoulders and neck start to tighten from the weight of my heavy winter coat, my too full handbag, and the big, cumbersome shopping bags I was carrying. Looking back at those crazy days makes me appreciate how I shop today; in my pajamas, with a cup of coffee (or wine), in my warm and comfy house. If I'm really into multi-tasking, I watch Real Housewives at the same time.
If you haven't tried this new version of holiday shopping, I highly recommend that you do. You can get a lot done in a short period of time without fighting the crowds and the cold. Speaking of cold, shopping online is safer because you won't have to be shoulder to shoulder with people who are coughing and sneezing their viruses at you.
Okay, go and put your jammies on, grab a mug or glass of your favorite beverage, and let's have some fun!
Can we start with kitchen gifts? Because cooking is fun, especially when you have the best gadgets to help make it easier and tastier. All of the items on this list can be found on Amazon.com, which is perfect because you can shop in one place and use your Prime account for faster shipping. BONUS! Almost everything is on sale from now through Cyber Monday!!
