December always seems to fly by and every year I tell myself I'll be organized and shop early and it never seems to happen! (Maybe I need the pressure?) Regardless by the 24th the frenzied shopping is done and the wrapping begins in earnest (and then comes the eating and the general merriment!) Here are some of my favorites from my virtual and in-person shopping trips - it's a mix of stocking stuffers and fun gifts that won't break the bank.
I’m a sucker for so many things at Anthropologie and these coasters immediately caught my eye. They look so chic and I love the color combo. They’re $16 USD each.
I have a few designs on the site that are under $30 and these sterling silver post and dangle earrings are just $28 CAD. They feature hammered organic shapes hanging from studs and they’re really lightweight and comfortable to wear.
The print on this Swedish dishcloth is so sweet and whimsical and the cloths themselves are quite practical. They’re made from natural materials, can absorb up to 15x their weight and can be washed up to 300 times. Super cute and eco-friendly? Win win plus they only cost about $8 CAD each.
I discovered this talented artist on Etsy and I’m thrilled to have a few of her prints and illustrations for my own! These notepads have 50 sheets and feature a kitchen motif that would be perfect to use for grocery lists. Each notepad is about $5 CAD which is an absolute steal!
I admit I have no idea what the candle smells like but the pretty packaging won me over. And it’s on sale for under $10 so it would be a great stocking stuffer.
Living in the Great White North like I do, I find I can never have enough lip balm (or hand cream for that matter!) so when I read the description for these I immediately put them on my wish list. They contain the calming scent of bergamot and chamomile and they’re made with natural ingredients. They’re on sale now for $4 CAD.
I always aspire to be more organized and it’s a perpetual New Year’s resolution so grabbing one of these cord organizers/earbud holders would be a step in the right direction. No more tangled loose cords and the holder is made with genuine leather. They’re about $9 CAD from Amazon.
And finally the sloth hook I chose purely based on the kitsch and cute factor! The little face is pretty darn adorable and it has much more personality than a plain metal hook. It’s only $8 USD at Urban Outfitters.
