Valentine’s Day Gifts For Him

To say that 2020 brought my husband and I closer together would be an understatement. Usually, we function in a parallel reality where we divide and conquer the responsibilities of day to day life. But last year was different, with us spending every weekend at home and spending more hours together, I learned A LOT about him and his interests, likes, and needs. This list has truly been created in honor of my husband, but may make sense for your significant other as well!

To keep things simple, these are all Amazon finds to make shopping easier for you! To see what else I have been shopping on Amazon, visit my storefront here.

Massager | Wireless Headphones | Hair Trimmer | Slides | Bomber | Columbia Jacket
Car Vaccum | Bedside Organizer

Bedside Organizer

I love the idea of creating a little space that doesn’t spill all over the side table like this one.

Also, for phones that can charge wirelessly, I cannot speak highly enough about these charging stands, I HIGHLY recommend them.

Adidas Slides

Every few years I feel that his slides need to be replaced. He uses them for trips to the mailbox, to take out the trash, hang poolside. These are classic and comfortable!

Columbia Zip Jacket

My husband grabs for his zip up jackets EVERY DAY! Years ago I wrote about the cost to wear ratio and with this one it is totally worth it. You can’t beat this deal and style.

Cordless Hair Trimmer

With all the money we all saved taking haircuts into our own hands in 2020, why not upgrade your equipment? This one has 60 minutes of shave time making it the perfect travel set too (whenever we do that again)!

Beats By Dre Wireless Headphones

Ok, if you are going to splurge a little, get these! For $70 you can have some peace and quiet during at home workouts. These not only have great sound qulaity, but also won’t fall out (ahem… air pods)!

Portable Car Vaccum Cleaner

I knew my husband loved his car, but wow, he is more meticulous about it’s maintenance than I am about my makeup! He will be unusually happy about this gift, you are welcome!

Massage Gun

With almost 3000 4.5 star reviews, this device is cheaper and equally as good as the popular Theragun ! This is a gift for him (and you too)!

Tommy Hilfiger Bomber

So if the Columbia Zip Up is his pick, then this bomber is mine. It is a stylish layer that I would prefer he wore when we are out an about. At less than $50, this is a great gift!

I hope that this list was helpful! I know shopping for the guys can be challenging!

Gift Guide for Girls Ages 9-12

As a mom of two girls (ages 9 and 10) with totally different personalities, I am sure there is something on this list that will help make shopping for you a little easier this year.

We all want to do something for our kids to lighten things up this year. Books are always my go-to when it comes to gifting (my girls are currently obsessed with this series), but this year in particular the girls and I really got into crafting to help pass time at home.

In particular, the hot chocolate bombs are the perfect stocking stuffer and with video games ruling my #momlife this year, a Roblox gift card is just perfect too!

For my artsy one, a tie dye kit and pottery set have been on her list forever!

I hope that this post was helpful. I know we all need ideas!

A while back, Sonia and I reviewed some games that also make for a good time with family and friends. Check them out below!

Get “The Look” With These Designer Investments Under $300 – Cyber Monday Deals!

The chicks have always agreed that a few little statement designer pieces can really dress up an outfit. We are notorious for taking a $50 Nordstrom Rack dress and throwing on a designer belt or brooch to look like a million dollars.

I have also shared how sometimes I buy things second hand, like handbags, to get more bang for my buck.  For confidence in shopping second hand, shop places like Fashionphile or TheRealReal for authentic products.  Even on pieces like these you can score big on Cyber Monday, so check out these designer pieces that can take any look from drab to fab in seconds.

Another reason to shop these looks, they are classic and timeless. you will wear them again and again for years, so your price to wear ratio that we always talk about it totally favorable.

**NOTE: Items are selling out sooo fast at this time, if you like it, get it ! **

 

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9

Chanel Drop Earrings

How classy are these!? Wear these with your hair up and make heads turn!

Louis Vuitton Leopard Scarf

Get the best of both worlds with this LV Monogram and leopard print scarf. Every year leopard print is a trend for Fall, so keep this year after year!

Rag and Bone Hat

Before you spend less on a similar looking hat, know that there is a reason these cost more – Rag and Bone literally created the trend, their cut, weight of the fabric and overall design makes these hats literally look better than others, so before you waste your money somewhere else, consider an investment in this.

Moschino Belt

This statement belt has been making the rounds on social media along with the Gucci belt and this Burberry one. It is literally the easiest way to dress up a plain black dress or layer up over a cape.

YSL Pool Slides

I rocked these all summer and can vouch for how comfortable and fashionable they are.  These are awesome slides, good in the sand and when wet.  I love how no matter what I was wearing, I had a little touch of ‘fancy’ on too!  Score these for 40% OFF!!

Burberry Scarf

This print never gets old, and this one in particular has more to offer with the additional colors.  I love the lightness of this scarf and how easily it drapes over your neck or your coat (as pictured).  For the price, you can’t beat this.

Balmain TShirt

I do live a dressy t-shirt but within reason which is why I am so glad that I found this Balmain shirt for $152 dollars.  Its black – which I love, with a button shoulder detail that is perfection.  What is not to love.

Valentino Love You Tee

This ones comes in at under $100 and is a perfectly understated tee.  I love how the model dressed it up with a skirt,  I am more likely to rock this with black skinny jeans.

Gucci Monogram Scarf

Lastly, this monogram scarf is a MUST under $300, you will wear it for years, your mom and sisters will steal it so scoop this up.  Its hard to find anything from Gucci for less than $300 so- you are welcome!

Well, hopefully these style tips can take your holiday looks up a notch. For higher end statements like Chanel brooches or Chanel earrings definitely check out Fashionphile.

Chick Picks:

12 Gifts For Teachers That You Love Under $30

I love giving gifts, its my thing and yes, I am already pulling together my list of people to get gifts for this year.  At the top of that list is teachers for me.  As a parent of a child with a chronic medical condition (see Type1Chick) I interact with my child’s teachers more than most and feel more indebted than most for that reason.  I know that gift cards and cash are king when it comes to gift giving, but sometimes I like to throw in a little something extra– because let’s face it, they deserve it.

1 |  2  |4  |  5  |  6  |  8  |  10  |  11  12 

I honestly love all of these ideas and give preference to things that they can use every day.

Kitty Ring Holder

If you don’t have one of these by your bedside or sink then you are missing out! Never lose your jewelry again – once you get in the habit, this little kitty will have changed your life.

Swell Wide Mouth Water Bottle

Is it just me or is getting ice into those little spouts a nuisance.  Not anymore with these easy to use AND easy to clean bottles.

Initial Necklace

I am almost ALWAYS rocking my little “R” necklace. Get one like this for your favorite teacher for $15!

Stress Balls

Ok so this falls into the ‘gag gift’ category, but its still useful and a fun addition to any gift card that you give.  You may want to grab one for your 8 year old mini me too (ahem, I digress!)

Amazon Dot

I cannot say enough about how useful this device is – even the classroom the dot can provide some relief with fun facts and jokes that are sure to chill out any teacher in a bind- scoop the dot up for less than $30 this season.

Crossbody With Tassel

This bag looks like it costs five times what it does, pick from any color and help your child’s teacher feel great by looking great.

iPhone Charger

How many times have your chargers gotten stolen since they all look alike! Not anymore, these adorable chargers are $6 each and won’t get lost in the mix.  These would make adorable stocking stuffers too!

Sephora Play Box

For the gift that keeps giving a Sephora Play Box is such a fun way to keep your teachers (or your friends) feeling great about themselves.  If you want to go big and give a multiple month gift, you can keep up those feels all year round.

Insulated Tumbler

Can we talk about this tumbler — its amazing and its $25!  This one will double up from Coffee O’Clock to Wine O’Clock in a snap.

Stainless Steel Straws

Over and over again we hear that we can do more for the environment – these straws make it easy to make a little change.  I suspect these will be very popular gifts this year as everyone tries to do better in the new year, so for less than $6, this set is a steal.

Bath Bomb Set

These vegan bath bombs have essential oils in them that will take your bath to the next level.  Give the gift of relaxation with this gift set.

Scalp Massager

If you own one of these, you know why they are AH-MAZING.  It may seem awkward to give a gift like this, but once you use it, you will understand why this is the easiest and most thoughtful gift for your child’s teacher.  Tag an Amazon Gift Card to it and have a happy holiday.

Hopefully you liked some of these ideas — what did I miss?  Giving to those I love and care about during the holidays is probably my favorite part of the season (in addition to all the good eats!)
