I use Amazon to find a lot of things and just love the convenience of 2 day shipping, so I thought I’d share my favorite Amazon buys from this year! I order a lot of stuff from Amazon and these are the items that I loved the most and others asked about, ,so if you need something to be delivered by Christmas, then check these products out:
This was a birthday present to go in our master bedroom next to my chair for me to read in. Turns out the lamp was too big for that spot, but Hunter and I loved it so much that it’s staying downstairs in the future bourbon & reading room. Considering that room isn’t done yet, it’s kinda crazy how much we use this lamp in just the few weeks we’ve had it.
I haven’t had a runner that fit the dining table we bought this year and it had been bothering me.. I found that most runners in stores were too short and I didn’t see anything I loved online until I found this chiffon on (for less than $20). It worked great with my winter table setting too!
You’ve probably seen me make a few types of cups for bachelorette weekends and other events and these are my go to. I don’t drink coffee so mugs aren’t big in our house and wine glasses are ok, but these can be used all the time. You can get a pack of 12 that are perfect for customizing.
Another great blank for crafting are these neoprene can coolers! Ever since I got my 6×7 EasyPress 2 and started making can coolers, I’ve used these a few times, the first as can coolers for my kickball team. Even if you aren’t going to craft with them, they’re just great quality coolers.
Clothes & Accessories
This dress was easily my favorite outfit this summer & fall. I wore it ALL THE TIME. I loved the midi length, the pockets and fit and got so many compliments every time I wore it.
My other purchase about the same time as the dress was a rattan purse! This is super cute and less than half the price of the same one you can find in boutiques. It’s my go to purse and I can’t wait to pull it back out when it gets warm again.
2018 might be the year of hair for me. After 30 years, I finally learned how to do my hair. It started when I was taught how to use a wand at a bachelorette weekend in Florida. I came home and bought one that is pretty cheap, but works great! I use this lil guy all the time and feel like I have fancy hair when it’s curly like this.
The most life changing purchase was my Dyson hair dryer. How can a hair dryer be life changing? I literally bought time. Let me explain: so when my hair is soaking wet it takes about 20 min to blow dry it then 30 to straighten it. I usually break it up so it’s not all at the same time, but still about an hour anytime I want straight hair (and with my crazy, frizzy hair, that’s anytime I want to look presentable).
Using the Dyson hairdryer and a round brush, it only takes 15 minutes and my hair is straight and dry. Fifteen minutes. I only have to touch up a few pieces around my face with a straightner. Since I got this a few weeks ago for my birthday, I’ve dried my hair almost everyday – because why not?? So yes, I literally bought time and now look a lil nicer at work 4 of the 5 days 😉
If you’re looking for a last minute gift for someone or just needed a lil something for yourself, I hope this helps! We order a lot of things on Amazon so love a good find – what are your favorite things to get from there?
