The holiday season is upon us, which means there is a lot of shopping going down right now. I am not a huge fan of crowds, so this girl prefers to do her shopping from the couch! Some friends of mine decided to get together and share tons of holiday gift ideas for the online shopper so you can sip your coffee and shop in your jammies like we are!
I've broken my favorite things down into different categories, so feel free to check them all out, or skip the items that don't fit your budget! But, hey...you never know, you may just find something to add to your Christmas list that you hadn't even thought about! Happy shopping!

If you are a long time reader, then you could have guessed that the Instant Pot would be at the top of my list. I've been sharing tons of Instant Pot Recipes since I got mine last year, and have made sooo many things, including chicken, my favorite Mississippi roast, baked potatoes, boiled eggs, corned beef and cabbage and sooo much more! It's by far my favorite cooking gadget, and I use it at least twice a week. The Instant Pot is the quickest way to cook just about anything and have it come out perfect and delicious every. single. time.
My mother-in-law bought me a NutriBullet for Christmas last year, and we quickly became a smoothie making family! I've been making a smoothie with spinach, bananas, strawberries, honey, almond butter and almond milk almost every single day since last Christmas, and feel like I'm starting my days off sooo much better. Plus, I'm getting more fruits and veggies in my diet. My husband and daughter have become smoothie junkies as well, so the NutriBullet is an absolute favorite in our home!
Listening to music puts me in such a great mood, and our Amazon Echo is such a great way to enjoy listening to music, podcasts and getting information about the local weather and traffic without touching a thing. I just tell "Alexa" to play my favorite artists or types of music, ask her what the weather is going to be like, or listen to podcasts and audio books while I'm getting things done around the house.
I'm not necessarily a morning person, so having a coffee maker that has a cup of coffee ready for me within seconds is AMAZING! The Keurig 2.0 is so great, and I can make a cup of cinnamon flavored coffee, a cup of hot tea or some hot cocoa with the quick add of a pod and the touch of a button. No wasting an entire pot of coffee or having to scoop coffee grinds. Bless my heart...I guess this is what my world has come to...lazy coffee making.
Photos are shared digitally so often now, and I have to admit, I kind of miss taking a roll of film Walgreens to get developed. There's just something fun about having a refrigerator filled with snapshots of friends and family. Since I take most of my photos from my iPhone, that's where they all seem to stay...in my phone. The HP Sprocket has tons of great reviews and will print your photos straight from your phone via bluetooth. I don't have one yet, but it is on my Christmas list this year...I hope Santa reads this ;)

I use my P-Touch CUBE Label Maker almost daily. Since I make all of my own Cleaning Recipes, I like to label them so I don't get them mixed up and I know what I'm using. The P-Touch CUBE allows me to create the labels from their app on my phone and then prints them out for me. I just remove the backing and stick the labels on my cleaning bottles and containers, and they stay on...even if they get wet! I can change out the label colors if I like and personalize them with different fonts and pictures too!
I've had this particular Cutting Board for over a year now. The board is made from bamboo and holds up so well to chopping. It's removable and easy to wash, and can also be flipped over so you have two different sides. My favorite thing about this cutting board is that it has a sliding drawer. You can pull the drawer out a bit so that whatever you are chopping falls into it instead of on your counter top, or you can store your knives in the drawer for easy access. Either way, this is one of my favorite kitchen tools!
We love making soups and chilis when it's cold outside, and they always seem to taste better when made in a dutch oven. This dutch oven can be used on the stove top, in the oven for roasting meats and vegetables, and we've even used it on our Big Green Egg smoker.
One of my favorite new things are zoodles....noodles made from zucchini. I originally purchased this spiralizer to make my favorite zoodles, and now I use it for all kinds of veggies! You can make salads and veggies so much easier when they are spiralized, plus it's just a fun way to incorporate more veggies into your life, right?
Christmas Gifts for $25 and under.
Prepping meals and lunches ahead of time is a must around here, so when I saw these Glass Meal Prep Containers that are divided, I grabbed them up immediately! They keep foods separate, and since they are glass, they don't absorb smells, and they clean easily. Also...I like to see what I have in them, and they stack so nicely in our refrigerator.
If I am at home or in my studio, you can count on me having a diffuser running with essential oils. I love mixing different oils and making new scents. The oils mixed with water diffuse into a calming mist, and can help with anxiety, stress, relaxation and even allergies. Right now, I've been diffusing a mix of 10 drops or Orange Essential Oil, 5 drops of Cinnamon Essential Oil, and 3 drops of Clove Essential Oil...I swear, it smells just like Christmas should!
If you are looking for an inexpensive essential oil kit, these are essential oils that are probably the most used! I use the orange and peppermint essential oils in lots of my Cleaning Recipes. Orange Essential Oil is an amazing degreaser and sticker remover, while Peppermint Essential Oil keeps ants and spiders away, and is also a great disinfectant. These are all great for diffusing too! Eucalyptus helps with congestion, Tea Tree helps with acne, and there are so many more uses for them!
Insulated Stainless Steel Tumblers are all the rage right now, and these Ozark Trail Tumblers work just as well as the Yeti ones in my opinion. They are also a lot less expensive...two for around $25!!
Bluetooth headphones are great for working out, but they are a true lifesaver when I'm in the car and need to have a conversation on my phone. They are hands free, so I can keep my hands on the steering wheel instead of on my phone. They are also super high quality for listening to music! These would make a great gift or stocking stuffer for any age!
This little kitchen gadget gets used a ton at our house! No more chopping onions for me...I just thrown them on my Onion Chopper Pro and push down the lever. They go into the plastic reservoir below, making it easy to pour them into a dish or pan. This chopper works great for peppers, potatoes, cheese and other veggies too!
I hope this gives you a few ideas for yourself as well as anyone on your holiday shopping list! But wait! There's more must-have items from some of your other favorite bloggers.

Happy shopping friends!
