Instead of my usual rotation for today’s post for a product review, I thought it was time to hop on the bandwagon and give you some wonderful gift ideas for 2020, whether you have a budget in mind or you just want to wow someone. Maybe you just want to do something heartfelt. Today I will share some DIY ideas and some hot buys for those of you with a little bit more to spend this holiday season!
Everyone has one person in their life who would love a new small kitchen appliance.
I know so many people who haven’t bought an IP and so many people who want one! This year say I love you or appreciate you with an Instant Pot!
Maybe that special person isn’t into cooking, maybe more of a baker? Give them a Kitchen aid stand mixer! I absolutely love mine and use it a lot all through the Christmas season!!
If a stand mixer is too much dough maybe try a kitchen aid hand mixer! Nothing says it’s the holiday season without some baked goods!!
Not everyone wants kitchen appliances, I know some people would love a Roomba or other robot vacuum, I am not going to lie I don’t have one but I would love to have a Roomba one Christmas season! So if you know someone who likes to keep their home clean without lifting a finger don’t hesitate on one of these robot vacuums!
Okay so your loved one is more a gadget, smart home person? I have to say Ring and Alexa are both pretty awesome. I love that they are compatible together.
A few years ago my husband bought Alexa for me even though I never said I wanted one. I am so glad he bought her because we do use her quite a bit! I use her a lot of kitchen timers, I ask her about the weather and allergies. We also enjoy playing games with her. One of my favorite things to use her for is making grocery lists! Whenever I am out of something I tell her and she’s got my back, don’t worry about forgetting items at the store anymore! She really is part of our home.
Besides having Alexa, after having her for a year my husband bought us Ring last year. Honestly, with all the crazy things going on in this world I think it is time for everyone to have Ring. I love that I can see what’s going on out my front door without opening it. We get some solicitors and it has definitely stopped me from having to answer the door. I love that if there is a package being delivered and it’s left on the porch I know I don’t have to worry about it being stolen since they would be on camera. Ring works amazing with Alexa, she alerts you when your doorbell rings so if you have a large home and an amazing echo dot in a faraway room you will not miss the doorbell!
I have mentioned in the past if there is one thing you know about me besides I love to bake, I am a germaphobe. That’s why I think everyone needs PhoneSoap. PhoneSoap is great regardless of who you are. Even my 10-year-old niece wants one. Checkout my PhoneSoap review for more information and product descriptions!
If you know someone who is religious about makeup and skincare I highly recommend a makeup brush cleaner! I absolutely love mine, never hurts to clean those makeup brushes to keep your skin clean and healthy!
I hope some of these hot buys have helped you with your holiday gift selection!
Okay so either your budget isn’t great or you have a big heart and want to do something homemade. I have a few DIY gift ideas for this year. Some cute but inexpensive things to give out for a large number of people are everywhere. You probably have ingredients in your home and don’t even know it!!
Hot chocolate jars/gift bag mixes. Hot chocolate mixes are so easy to make up. They require minimal ingredients that you can premake into small bags or jars, tie a little ribbon and a note on how to make them and people will go nuts! Find a favorite on Pinterest!
If you are anything like me you know I am baking up a storm every holiday season! You can never go wrong with a bag, box, tin, or a tray of cookies. I mentioned in previous posts I make over 1,000 cookies every season. I love to give back to family, friends, and anyone I want to show some appreciation to.
If you aren’t into cookies, maybe some homemade fudge, chocolates, brownies.
I hope some of these DIY’s have helped you with your holiday gift selection!
Whatever you choose always remember it is the thought that counts!
