Last Minute Christmas Gifts that I LOVE for Under $45

How are you doing on your Christmas shopping??  Are you still shopping??

I think I'm done after a late night Amazon all the gifts to all the out of town friends session last night.  I used to buy gifts, package them up and then ship them off. Not anymore.  Going to the post office with kids is nuts.  The lines are nuts and shipping is EXPENSIVE.  So Prime to the rescue.

Let me tell you some of my very favorite Amazon gifts to get and to give right now.  These are all things I either own or have gifted to other people.  My very favorites!

I think all of these could arrive in time for Christmas if you shop SOON!

1. Galvanized Metal 3 Tiered Stand
Wouldn't this be so cute in your kitchen?  Or in your bathroom holding all of your makeup?  I'm tempted to get another one for hair bows.

2. CC Beanies
I love these beanies for women and for kids.  My kids have some really cute ones for winter.  I also sent an olive green one to a friend for Christmas this year.

3. 90 Degree Yoga Pants by Reflect High Waist
Hands down the best yoga pants I've ever owned.  They're thick.  Hold you in.  Are NOT see through and they don't pill.  They're such high quality.  I own the pants and the capris.  Can't sing their praises enough.

4. Make Something Good Today
Do you ever watch Hometown with Ben & Erin Napier??  I love them.  I love that they're in Mississippi (a place we LOVED living).  I love their accents and I love their story.  I got this book for my birthday and it's wonderful.  It's filled with charming stories, pictures and I think it's a book that everyone would enjoy reading.

5. Gallery Leather Planner
I have been using the same type of planner for over ten years.  I just love it.  It's simple.  Compact.  There's plenty of room for daily to do lists and it's affordable.  I am not a huge, spiral bound planner person.  This classic planner is more my style.

6. Kate Spade Studs
I adore these earrings.  I've been collecting them for at least 6 years.  I just love them.  They're such high quality.  I still wear the ones I purchased all those years ago.  They are a staple in my accessory wardrobe.  A good friend surprised me with some confetti ones for my birthday this year.  I love them!  Any lady in your life would LOVE these.

7. Picasso Tiles
My kids are getting a couple of sets of these for Christmas.  I can't wait for them to open them.  They play with them everywhere we go so it's going to be really cool to have some of our own.

8. Beer Bottle Opener and Cap Catcher
I got this for Kevin for Christmas last year and he loves it.  He hung it up right away.  It's so hand for him and for when we have guests over.

Happy Shopping!!

  1. I gifted a couple of CC Beanies this year. Huge hit with the girls.

  2. I got 2 more pairs of the 90 degree leggings for myself!! They are the BEST!!

  3. I'd love to have one of the 3 tier stands; I just don't have kitchen or bathroom counter space right now! I'm going to have to try those leggings. I hate ones where they don't stay in place. Those studs are so cute! I am on the search of a good planner for next year. I will have to check that one out.

  4. What fun ideas! I always love seeing what other people want/have. btw, we got your Christmas card last week. I love it! You guys are the sweetest family. Your family pic was adorable!

  5. You can also get the CC Beanies from Hobby Lobby and use their 40% off coupon to bring down the cost. That's where I snagged mine.

  6. Great finds! I have a similar tiered stand from Walmart and love it. The leggings are on my to-buy list after all the holiday spending finishes!

  7. Great round up - I have a similar 3-tier tray and I love it!

  8. I totally agree that shipping gifts is outrageous! There was a possibility that Paul's brother and family wouldn't make it here from NY for Christmas, and my first thought was horror at how much it would cost to ship the gifts I've already wrapped! LOL. Thankfully they are going to make it to SC after all. You got me hooked on those Kate Spade earrings and I agree, they are the BEST! They're so comfortable and make a nice statement without being too much.


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
