In the past I used to be that super organized person who had finished her Christmas shopping by October 1st. When people called me crazy, I used to carry that badge with pride!
Well, the last couple of years I fell off that bandwagon and have been literally scrambling trying to get things delivered on Amazon Prime the day before the festivities. Talk about stressful!
I made a deal with myself to get things organized by mid-November this year. And let me tell you, as I write this on October 29th, I feel like a winner about it already!
Although online shopping will always be my go-to, I did get some incredible handmade items from an artist friend as well.
Let’s dive into my super versatile holiday shopping finds!
Gemstone Coasters from Shona K. (contact her through Facebook if you’d like to order some). These are actually made of durable resin and come in a lot of different colors! Just $45 CAD for a set of 4.
Woman on a Mission Mug from Eccolo.
Whether you’re a boss lady yourself or know one, this mug makes a really cute gift!
Baby, It’s Cold Outside!
These three delightful hand creams—Thank You XO XO, Hello Beautiful and Spoil Yourself—moisturize and keep hands happy during the cold winter months. Great for elbows, too! With scents like Lait De Coco, Gardenia and Matcha plus a convenient cosmetic bag, this could only be a MONAT Exclusive.
I grabbed a bunch of these for teacher gifts and some I’ll break into individual stocking stuffers! Leaping Bunny Certified!
Mistletoe Prep Kit for him
Let him groom with confidence while on the go. This classic travel kit features a TSA-approved zip top closure pouch, tastefully designed to hold all your shaving and grooming essentials. Includes an assortment of MONAT BLACK products, a gray nylon travel bag and a classic safety razor.
Santa’s Little Helpers for kids
Designed for pure fun at bath time! This giftable limited-edition children’s grooming collection features a trio of floating and squirting bath toys along with our gentle and non-irritating MONAT Junior line created to quickly cleanse without drying out hair, add shine and manageability, combat frizz and help subdue those knots. As all Monat products, this set is also Leaping Bunny Certified.
Rewind Age Control Nectar and Eye Smooth
Your lady friends, regardless of their age, will love this facelift set in a bottle! Nectar helps tackle uneven skin tone, age spots, loss of elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles, and a dull-looking complexion for an instantly smoother and ageless version of you.
Eye Smooth tightens the delicate skin around the eye contours, diminishing the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness, to reveal a brighter, more youthful look.
Saxx Snooze Lounge Pants for him
Snooze men’s sleep and lounge pants are the ultimate upgrade to your usual sweatpants or joggers according to my husband. These are so soft and warm, the PJ pants are made of premium Modal fabric.
Your man will love finding these under the tree at holiday time!
This gift set will not only leave your dog with an unbelievably shiny, smooth, healthy-looking, manageable coat, but it also comes with a Doggie Weekender Bag, perfect for carrying all your dog toys wherever you go.
Non-toxic, sulphate free, designed for the pH of the dogs’ skin.
