I like shopping as close to Christmas as possible. To me, shopping is a part of traditional Christmas festivities and must be done during the Christmas season. It’s the only time that makes shopping bearable. So if you’re like me, and still shopping for the elusive perfect gift, here’s the world’s shortest mall gift guide.
Sierra Tech Charger Clutch, $38, Francesca’s
A cute clutch that charges your phone on the go? Yes, please. Or am I the only one whose phone always dies when I’m out and about?
Plaited Wool-Blend Touchscreen Compatible Gloves, $14.95, Express
If you expect your man to text you back ASAP when it’s a bajillion degrees below outside, buy him these. (And buy me some too.)
Flannel Drawstring Sleep Pants, $6, Old Navy
Here’s how this works: get your sister the cutest pajama bottoms, throw in a thermal top, and then duplicate the look for yourself. Family jammies! (Matching pajamas would be a fun mommy/newborn or newlywed gift!)
Pentatonix, “That’s Christmas to Me,” $10.29, Walmart
Best. Christmas. Gift. Ever. My brother bought this for me last Christmas. I listened to it until the snow melted, and I started listening to it again well before Thanksgiving. It’s my go-to car jam. (You could also buy their new album, but this one’s better.)
And don’t forget to give the gift of yourself! Take your grandma out to eat, get your nails done with your best friend, go see the new Star Wars movie with your little brother, or learn how to snowboard with your hubby. (Been there, done that, got the medical bill to prove it.)
What’s your favorite gift you’ve given or received? I need to start gathering ideas for next year!
