Early Shopper’s Holiday Gift Guide 2016

Christmas is right around the corner! I know, we just celebrated Labor Day, it’s still hot outside (in most places) and school just started back. The last thing that you want to think about is Christmas shopping. I’m right there with you. It is time to start thinking about it, though. I tend to be an early shopper. I like to get good deals on holiday gifts and get the shopping over before December. Now, we all know that doesn’t always happen, but I try to prepare as best I can. The holidays are my favorite time of year, so I like to spend that time relaxing with my family instead of worrying about who I haven’t purchased a gift for yet. I will be doing a series of gift guides over the next few months, and today I am so excited to share with you the first in that series: the Early Shopper’s Holiday Gift Guide 2016

Neato Robotics Botvac Connected.  You all know that I love my Neato Robotics Botvac . I know it may seem weird to buy a household appliance for a holiday gift, trust me, it is the best gift you will give a busy momma or wife. Since we have had our Botvac, I have had so much more time to spend with my family or do the million other things that are required of me as a work at home mom.

Amazon Prime. We love Amazon in our house. I have had several experiences with their customer service lately and each experience has been amazing. We use Amazon Prime frequently in our house as well, especially around the holidays. The free shipping with Prime is perfect for those last minute gifts, or sending gifts to out of town friends and family. It saves me time (and money!). 

Capresso Iced Tea Maker. We are HUGE sweet tea drinkers. I think it has something to do with living in the south. This tea maker is amazing and saves me so much time. It’s the perfect gift for a newly married/engaged couple, someone moving into a new home or anyone who loves iced tea.

Brews Almighty Travel Mug in WhiteI love all things gold and shiny, and all things coffee. This mug is adorable and let’s face it, you can’t ever have too many cute coffee mugs. Around here, ours tend to disappear like socks do in the washer.

Integrated Listening Systems Dreampad. I was a little skeptical of this at first, would it really help me sleep better? It has! Between a baby and our dogs, our house is noisy, even at night. My Dreampad has truly helped me to get a more restful sleep. I didn’t take it with us when we went on a trip recently and I could tell I woke up less rested than I normally do.

Collective Revival Bundle.  I struggle with making quiet time for myself, this bundle from Collective Revival encourages quiet time with the Lord. The journal is amazing, it has spaces for 2 years worth of journaling your quiet time with the Lord. The journal pages aren’t huge and overwhelming, making you feel like you need to write a book, instead they are a few short lines which is doable for a busy mom. Each part of this bundle has been a precious addition to my office and are the perfect gift for any busy lady in your life!

I want that mug! I really need it. Oh and that vacuum is super cute. I'd love to try it but I think it would scare the crap out of my cats. Lol.

I do too! I want the mug for myself ;) The vacuum is amazing, our dogs got used to it after a few times and now they just ignore it!

These are all such great ideas! I really don't want to fast forward Fall by starting my Christmas shopping but i'm a huge fan of getting it done early. Thanks for all the ideas!
