Finish Your Shopping: Gift Ideas

Hey there, gang… first of all:  WAR EAGLE!  We’ve had so much fun watching Auburn play this year and my Auburn Tiger husband is one happy camper right now!  And since today is also his 55th birthday, all is right in our world. 🙂  Happy Birthday, honey!

I saw this on Facebook yesterday and so I have to share…

Now, down to business…

Have you finished your shopping?  I’m just a few purchases away from being finished, but since I have quite a bit of SHIPPING to do, I’m taking a break from shopping to wrap and pack.  Tick tock, y’all. 🙂  I was blessed this year that I had lots of great gift ideas for everyone on my list, but in years past it’s sometimes been a struggle to come up that perfect gift for some on my list.

That’s where Pinterest comes in… I keep my Gift Ideas board updated year round so I’m not scratching my head at the last minute.  Feel free to browse my board and repin whatever strikes your fancy.

Just for fun, here’s a few of my favorites.

    My shopping is done and about 1/3 of the gifts are wrapped! My husband and I have a total of 7 children and 9 grandchildren not to mention children’s spouses and in laws ect to buy for. Anyway, one of the gifts I got this year was a diamond candle for my husband’s step-mother (who is VERY difficult to buy for). Thanks again for the giveaway a couple of months ago where I won one. I liked it so much that it gave me the idea to purchase one for one of her Christmas gifts. We will be having 2 get togethers with our Georgia family here at our house this Saturday for lunch and then another group at dinner. Friday Dec. 20th we leave for Florida to spend 9 glorious days spoiling the majority of our grandchildren 🙂

  3. Well, I must admit that I have not bought the first gift…going to do a marathon Amazon this week!…Congrats on Auburn winning the SEC…good luck to them going forward!…the Gator season this year was awful!!..thanks for the gift tips!!!

  4. Great ideas! What I am stuck on is something for the inlaws…. any ideas??

    • Hmm, inlaws can be hard, Shannon! I usually give a gift of experience to mine: tickets to an event, play, concert or a dinner at a favorite restaurant. Then I’ll usually add in something small for each of them: a book, scarf, or something related to a favorite hobby. Hope that helps! Let me know what you end up deciding on!
