I have a scary fact to share with you today… Christmas is only 8 Sundays away!!!!!!!!!
Who’s ready??!! If you’re not raising your hand, don’t worry. I’ve got your back! I’m going to share my “12 gifts of Christmas” early. Hopefully these 12 gift ideas will be a spark of inspiration and you’ll find the perfect thing for each person on your list. Do you at least have a list? If not, stop right now and make sure you do! It’s so helpful to have an actual list – not just a “mental list” – to help you keep track of your brilliant ideas and not accidentally double-buy for someone. Not that I’ve done that…
Ok great. Now that we have a list of WHO we’re buying gifts for and some ideas of WHAT, I have a challenge for us. Let’s all finish our Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving! That way we can all go into the Christmas season with one less job to do. One less thing that can add pressure or stress. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?!
But but but – what about Black Friday?! Hear me out. If Black Friday is a big Christmas gift buying day for you, consider this: do you ever buy gifts because they’re a good deal and then re-buy another gift for the same person after you’ve given it some more thought? That’s why I’m asking you to make a list NOW, and you have until Thanksgiving to BUY the gifts. Then, when you go shopping on Black Friday, you can turn a blind eye to the “deals” that jump out at you because you already have their gift. Now, if you do happen to find a better deal for somebody (don’t you just hate buying something that goes on sale the next day?), most stores will honor the sale price and give you back the difference. Win win! Plus, with so many stores doing early Black Friday deals, you have no reason not to start shopping early. In fact, I already know of a few deals and they’re on my list to share with you!
SO! Now that we have our plans in place, let’s start shopping! I’ll be sending a gift idea in a daily email for the next 12 days, and you can sign up for those emails here:
But just in case the thought of only 8 Sundays til Christmas has you shaking in your boots, here’s a bonus idea to get you started:

When I bought my silk pillowcase from Amazon, I said goodbye to waking up to creases on my face ever again. I’m a deep, heavy sleeper, and would often find imprints of my pillow on my skin. Not anymore! Now I don’t have to worry that I’m giving myself wrinkles while I sleep. This one is 100% 25 momme mulberry silk (the best) on both sides (some brands cheat and just use silk for one side). Plus, there’s a hidden zipper so your pillow can’t slip out and there’s a HUGE variety of colors. This is the one I have, but feel free to shop around – as long as it meets the same standards, it’ll be great!
