Christmas is right around the corner! Are you all done shopping? Me? Nope! I'll be finishing up at like 5:45pm on December 24th, as the stores are closing down! That's just how I do it. It'd be really weird for me to not be rushing around on Christmas Eve - you could say it's kind of a tradition now. Seriously, it's just I have to find the perfect gift, and that takes time people! I hate giving the same old, same old to everyone! I love unique, no one else thought about this kind of gifts.
For those of you that want to give the "OMG, this is amazing" gifts and want to have your Christmas Eve all to yourself, I have you covered! I have been online shopping for some gifts and have found some really great, and budget friendly, amazballs things for everyone on my, and your, list! Here are a few of my favorites for women, kids and our favorite guys! Take heart in knowing these are things they won't be expecting, but will absolutely fall in love with! Wanna be the one with the best gift giving skills this year? Ok! Keep reading...and you're welcome!
What BFF, mom, sister, aunt, daughter doesn't love decorating and making their house beautiful? Let's start with some things for the home...
I love quotes! And this rustic, reclaimed wood and metal sign, sold by Nordstrom, sums up the meaning of living a good life! For $70 this 20"x14" sign will add a rustic element to your loved ones decor, while serving as a reminder of the important things in life. Who doesn't need that daily reminder? Uhh...everyone does.
Starting at $39 this handmade, personalized sign found on Etsy, is a great Christmas, wedding, housewarming, pretty much anytime gift, for anyone! This rustic, family name sign is available in a variety of sizes and is certain to add character and warmth to any room it hangs in. Personally, I want one for the porch! This would be perfect right above my wicker chairs!
Oh how I LOVE these wall sconces from Country Home and Heart on Etsy! I don't have anyone on my list getting these...except me...I'm getting these! They are going to be adorable on either side of the window leading to my stairway! These are fully customizable to any room colors and come with the flowers and lights already included for only $55!

Now, how about a few things for the guys...
I can 100% guarantee the guys in my life will love and use the hell out of this set of 2, Whiskey Ice Balls sold at Uncommon Goods for just $19.95! Not only do they just look awesome, but they keep your mixed drinks (not just for whiskey) cold, but not watered down. And for less than $20 fill the freezer with these just in time for that NYE party!!
If you have a Master Griller on your list this $12 Stuffed Hamburger Press with Lifter sold by William Sonoma is perfect and likely not something they have or know they need, yet! And at this price you can grab a few of them and make a set (so he can whip out several burgers super fast) or give as stocking stuffers for all the guys on your list!
If those Whisky Ice Balls weren't quite enough for the guy on your list, these miniature, personalized Whiskey Barrels, starting at $85, through Uncommon Goods are sure to surprise and delight him! Not only are they cute as hell, adding an old town feel to his bar area atmosphere, but he gets to age his own whiskey to his own exact, preferred taste! Can you say Bar Master when all the guys come over for the game? Yep, you just became the greatest wife, girlfriend, mom, sister in his eyes!
Ok, ok...enough on the guys, we gotta get to the kiddos! Again, if you need more awesome gift ideas check out my Gift Ideas board on Pinterest! I add more everyday as I find the best gifts for everyone!
You cannot go wrong with this KidKraft Waterfall Mountain Train & Table Set sold by Zulilly! Whether you are buying for a boy or a girl, they will absolutely love this, spending HOURS playing with it - Daycare Provider, remember? Trust me, I know what I'm talking about...HOURS! I was trying to keep my list to amazing gifts under $100, but this one is just too good for all munchkins and at $129.99 it's actually a really budget friendly "big" gift that will last a lot of years! It Includes train table, three storage bins and 120-piece train set. Dimensions are 48.75'' W x 16'' H x 34.5''
Honestly, isn't it time we get our kiddos back to some hands on, everyone in the family can play, kind of fun? Yes. The answer is yes. This Pallina Ball Dropping Game for $36.50 from Uncommon Goods does just that! This is a fun, suspenseful and strategic game that's fun for the whole family! Since all your Christmas shopping will be done by Christmas Eve (again, you're welcome), let this be a Christmas Eve gift and spend the evening, before Santa comes, making some memories!
