So, if I were to tell you that Christmas is only 17 days away, would that panic you? Or do you have all of your Christmas, um, ducks (turkeys? hams?) in a row?
Well, just in case you still need some ideas for gifts, I’m back with some more great picks from Amazon. (Be sure to check out last year’s list too; most of the items are still available at the same or similar prices).
This year, I’ll do three separate posts at three different price points (under $10, $10-$20, and $20-$50)
I’m starting with the super-cheapies–many of which would make great stocking stuffers or even stand alone gifts for friends, coworkers, Great Aunt Alberta…you know, whoever.
Note: Each of these items includes an affiliate link, which means that if you purchase these items, I will receive a small percentage of the price at no extra cost to you. Win, win!
I love the look of these lace-topped boot socks that come in 5 different neutral color options. There are only a couple of reviews, but they’re both positive and say that the socks came quickly (in the one week range).
I actually ordered these fun statement earrings as an add-on to an order, and they came super-quickly and are very cute (and good-sized). The colors are quite bright (almost neon), but not so much so that they couldn’t add a nice pop of color to a subdued outfit.
I also ordered this cute vintage bicycle necklace. It’s supposed to come in this week, so I can’t speak personally to the quality, but it does have a few reviews (all good) and is only $3.55 shipped.
Another great stocking-stuffer option are these crocheted floral ear-warmers. No reviews, so I can’t speak to quality or how quickly they ship. But they come in 6 pretty colors with a cute button closure and cost $3.45 shipped!
I love this funky owl pillow cover. It’s less than $5 shipped (!!!) and has a hidden internal zipper and great reviews.
Update: I just ordered one, and it says that estimated delivery time is the 1st of January, so order for yourself, but it doesn’t sound like a great option for gifts.
If you’ve got a baker in your life, these melamine Cake Boss measuring cups are a great alternative to the plain Jane variety, are dishwasher safe (top rack), and won’t break the first time you use them. Great reviews!
This set of 4 adorable pencil pouches (yup, you get all 4!) are only $3.42 shipped and have great reviews. Just beware that the estimated delivery time is 10-17 days.
If you have any polish lovers in your life, this is an amazing deal on a trio of fun, holiday colors. China Glaze polishes usually retail for $8+ per bottle and are great quality (I have several), so I’d snatch one of these up in a heartbeat.
If you or someone you love is into Burt’s Bees, this is a really good deal on their basic lip balm. (They usually retail for over $3 per tube).
I ordered this statement necklace because of the good reviews (most noted that it looked more expensive than they expected) and because I don’t have any necklaces with black accents. But I haven’t gotten it yet (and am not sure when I will), so I can’t say what I’ll think for sure. The reviews are a bit mixed as far as delivery time (most said it came “quickly,” but didn’t qualify that with a specific time amount). But it might be worth a gamble for less than $5 shipped.
I haven’t done it yet, but I’m tempted to order this jeweled headband just to see what it’s like in person. If you’ve ever priced out similar headbands (very Anthro-esque), then you probably know that they usually run a minimum of $12 (even at Ross or Marshall’s), so, even with no reviews, this one might be worth checking out, since the price-tag is only $5.34.
This pretty turquoise Fiesta cup barely squeaks in under the $10 mark, but it’s quite large (18 oz.) and nice quality, so it should be a hit with any coffee/turquoise lovers. (There are lots of other colors available, but not all are under $10).
There are quite a few (barely) under $10 funky print options for this lightweight infinity scarf, so be sure to scroll through the options to find the one that works best for the loved one you have in mind.
This option is a bit on the random side, but it would pair quite nicely with a stapler I’ll show you in our $10-$20 price range later on this week and would make any office-supply lover totally geek out.
My phone is a Samsung Galaxy, and I love it. But I am sad that this chic gold + white polka dot (well-reviewed) phone cover is only for iPhones.
Another great pillow color option–especially for neutral-lovers–is this striped option.
These vintage-inspired s+p shakers would add a nice touch of whimsy to a neutral kitchen.
This leather + nylon stacked LOVE bracelet looks fun, and at only $1 shipped, is kind of hard to pass up.
(Note: for some reason, this image takes you to the right link but is not actually displaying a picture of the LOVE bracelet that I’m listing, so be sure to click through if you want to see the real deal)
Another item to please the pretty office-supply lover in your life. This 3 pack of gold patterned washi tape would be so great for taping up your kids’ artwork, making packages look nice…taping notes written backwards onto your kids’ foreheads. Whatever.
Love the soft, muted colors of this “Not all who wander are lost” sketchbook journal.
And there you have it–20 fun, affordable options for practically every category of woman in your life!
