Some Fabulous Last Minute Gifts Under $25 & My First Give Away!

Here's to all you procrastinators out there!  We are a sisterhood of well-meaning women who really do plan on getting things done in a timely fashion, but we put things off until the last minute because for us, stress is our greatest motivator.  So, I thought I throw you all a rope, and I scouted out some really great, affordable gifts that you can run out and pick up today.  But why do it today, when you can wait until Christmas Eve?

Bath and Body Works:  Scent Bug $12.99, scented oils $7.50

Running on 2 AA batteries, this little device fills your home with any of 30 different scented oil fragrances without the open flame of a candle and comes in 7 fun colors.

Costco:  8-piece Glass Beaded Utensil Set $19.97

Dresses up any serving table, this set comes with 2 large serving spoons, 2 appetizer spoons, and 4 spreader knives accented with hand made glass beads that come in blue or green shades.

Costco: Dexas Over-the-sink Bamboo Cutting Board with Collapsible Strainer $16.99


Wash and drain produce in the strainer before chopping, or use it to stash carrot or potato peelings.  Folds flat for easy storage.

Cost Plus World Market:  Silver Peace Sign Jewelry $9.99/piece


Anything and everything peace-y is popular with the tween to teen crowd.  These pieces of quality jewelry make great stocking stuffers.

Cost Plus World Market:  Stacking Mugs $9.99 - $14.99


These colorful mugs save space and will accent any kitchen decor.  I love the multicolored stripey ones in the back.  So pretty!

Target:  White Ceramic Serving Platters $19.99 - $24.99
If you entertain, you know how indispensable plain white platters are.  Add to your giftee's collection with an oval, square, or rectangular one from Target.

I hope these suggestions help if your in a gift-giving slump.  I know I'd love any of these things under the tree with my name on them. And now on to one final piece of business...
MY FIRST GIVE AWAY!!!
I'm giving away two small, but fabulous products to one lucky follower.  All you have to do to be eligible, is be a follower of this blog.  I'll randomly choose the winner and post it next Monday.

The first item is a 2-pack of Trader Joe's amazing kitchen cloths.


I tried to have my little guy play "spokesmodel" but it didn't quite work out.  Oh well, he's adorable anyway.


The second item I'm giving away is a cool new little device I was sent to try called the Bryton Pick.
If you hate getting food stuck in your teeth when you're away from home and can't floss, you'll love the Bryton Pick.  It runs circles around toothpicks, or anything else you might try to fish that poppyseed out from between your two front teeth.  Developed and tested by dental professionals, they're pre-sterilized and made of germ resistant stainless steel and are re-usable for up to 30 days.  I'll  be sending the winner 2, each in their own little pouch.  They are currently available from Meijer, Kinney drugs, and online.
So check back here the Monday after Christmas, and I'll announce the winner.  In the meantime, have a wonderful, glorious, and peaceful holiday celebrating the birth and life of your savior and mine, Jesus Christ.  May God bless you and your families.
