Deals Week Gift Guide
Ultimate Stocking Stuffers
Amazon Echo Dot – $18.99 (Normally $49.99)
We have these in every room, and they’re so great because: You can play Apple or Amazon music by simply saying “Alexa, play Taylor Swift’s Folklore…”, for example. You can ask her to give you the “good news” of the day, ask her for the weather report, or ask her anything you want to! We like to take our echos on road trips to play sleep sounds for our baby, and my daughter uses hers as an alarm clock for school! One my favorite features is that it you can drop-in on other rooms. So, when it’s time for dinner, instead of yelling for the kids, you just “drop in” on your kid’s echo and tell them to come eat. Get one for every room and put them in stockings for an ultimate surprise!
Alexa Echo Auto – $19.99 (Normally $49.99)
I love a fun tech gadget as a stocking stuffer! This is the portable Echo for your car — Echo Auto. As you’re driving, you can ask Alexa to remind you to pick up flowers on the way home (guys — for your wife), or to pack the boys’ cleats for soccer practice tomorrow, and she will add it to your reminders, which you will receive through your app and from your Echo Dots at home at whatever time your tell her to remind you. Super cool.
Kitchen & Home Gifts
Kitchen Aid Mixer in White – $239 (Normally $379)
I cannot tell you how much I love my KitchenAid Mixer. It’s the best mixer (that I know of) on the market. I use it a lot for making homemade chocolate chip cookies and pies during the holidays. There are a lot of attachments and accessories for it, which I love. This white one is chic and is a great deal!
Ninja Single Serve Blender – $69 (Normally $139)
I love love love my Ninja blender. It makes the smoothest smoothies. It’s so powerful, you can put a whole banana and apple slices in there – no problem. And I never need more than a single serving, I just like to make my own fresh smoothie in the morning; however, you can get two or three servings out of this, depending on your portion size. My daughter and I also love making Acai bowls, so for many reasons this is a top pick!
NutriBullet Blender – $69 (Normally $99)
If you’re looking for a full size blender, the NutriBullet is the way to go – it’s on major sale, and one of my best friends has this and swears by it! It has tons of good reviews and it one of the most powerful blenders on the market. I cannot stress enough how much of a difference a good blender makes! Grab this while it’s HOT!
Target is having a HUGE RUG SALE with beautiful and dang cheap options! Here’s one of my faves!
Lace 12-Piece Dinnerware Set – $42.97 (Normally $48.49)
This granny-chic dinnerware set is so adorable, and it’s the perfect price if you need to stock up on holiday place settings for a large group! I could see this looking really cute with some fur greenery underneath the plates or bundled in with the little napkin holder on top! It also comes in RED (perfect for Christmas) or blue for anytime!
I normally wouldn’t show two of a similar item, but I had to include these adorable light blue place settings as well! I am a sucker for anything light blue!
Instant Pot – $49 (Normally $79)
This is on my wish list this year! I have been wanting one of these Instant Pots. Apparently, you can cook a whole meal in it in 15 minutes. These have gotten so popular that you can easily find Instant Pot recipes everywhere online with a simple Google search. It’s hard to find these under $80, so this is a great deal!
Roku TV – $218 (Normally $259)
We absolutely love our Roku TV. What is a Roku TV? It’s a smart TV for millennials. You do not need a cable subscription anymore. You just need a Roku TV, because it has dozens (possibly hundreds?) of apps including YouTube TV, YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Disney+, HGTV, Hulu, HBO, ABC (hello, bachelor fans), etc. You can just pick the subscriptions you want, and you can watch your favorite programs or a lot less than a cable subscription. We have the YouTube TV subscription and you can watch live TV just like you would with any other cable provider.
Blue Dutch Oven – $49 (Normally $115)
These are a great match to Staub. They’re wonderful to have for holiday cooking, and such a good deal right now!
Calphon Knives Set – $99 (Normally $129)
A good knife set makes a huge difference when cooking. I have this same knife set, and while it’s not the fanciest you could get, it is definitely a solid choice when it comes to cooking knives. I would recommend these. This set comes with 8 steak knives, scissors, and the block in addition to the various knives.
Road Trip Must-Have
Amazon Fire Kids Tablet – $79.99 (Normally $139.99)
We do not leave the house without our Kids’ Fire Tablet. Our toddler will be glued to this for hours in the car, and it makes road trips so much easier. You can get a strap to put it around the headrest, but we just flip it upside down (the screen flips itself), and open the back flap and slide it in between the headrest and seat and viola! It’s ready for toons! Download some programs at home before the trip and you won’t need Wifi to play the shows.
Apple AirPods Pro – $199 (Normally $249)
Apple came out with these new AirPods Pro recently, and my husband has them and loves them! (I have the first edition AirPods and love them too!) They can be noise cancelling, or you can switch them to background listening mode, and they are a more comfortable fit than the first edition. They come with different size ear pieces so you can find the fit you like best. I love my AirPods for working out, car trips, etc. They’re really comfortable and cordless! These could be a fun stocking surprise or just Christmas gift in general! Snag these while the deal is HOT!
Lenovo Chromebook – $199 (Normally $299)
My preteen has a version of this laptop and completes all her schoolwork on it. These days, a good laptop is a necessity even for the kids! I think this is a great deal that you should definitely look at if you’re in the market for a laptop for your kids. I’m not sure how powerful it would be for the working professional, but it’s worth looking into at this price!
Amazon Kindle for Kids – $127 (normally $142)
I think encouraging reading is always a smart thing for a parent to do! We try to read books every night to my toddler, and my preteen has daily reading for school. This Amazon Kindle for Kids is great for road trips or “quiet time” on Sunday afternoons. We sometimes do a TV-off afternoon on Sundays and we all rest, read, or do things other than media consumption. It’s so refreshing. Here’s the regular Amazon Kindle if you want one too – only $119!
2020 Ring Doorbell + Echo Dot Bundle – $69 (Normally $139)
The 2020 Ring 1080p HD video doorbell lets you see, hear, and speak to anyone at your front door from your phone, tablet, or PC. As an update from the original Ring Video Doorbell, this one touts improved motion detection, privacy zones and audio privacy, and crisper night vision. You can receive mobile notifications when anyone presses your doorbell or triggers your built-in motion sensors. It’s going on my husband’s wish list this year! This bundle comes with the Echo Dot.
Amazon Fire Tablet – $79 (Normally $149)
I would really love having a tablet in the kitchen when I need to display a recipe while cooking! The Amazon Fire Tablet has up to 12 hours of reading, browsing the web, watching video, and listening to music. This is a crazy good deal as far as computer tablets go!
Beats Noise Cancelling Headphones – $199 (Normally $349)
My tween daughter has a pair of beats that her grandparents gave her, and we don’t leave for a road trip without them! These noise cancelling headphones are top-of-the-line and a super swanky gift for the music-lover.
Jewelry & Watches
Garmin Smart Watch with GPS – $199 (Normally $349)
I’m personally an Apple Watch person, but if you’re looking for a similar gadget for less — this is it! FitBits are on sale too – here!
Lacoste Dress Watch – $88 (Normally $144)
Lacoste made a huge comeback when I was in high school, so this pick is nostalgic for me! This women’s dress watch is so pretty and would make a great stocking stuffer or shiny present under the tree.
Scrunchies with Bows – $8.39 (Normally $11.99)
Stocking stuffer! For any age girl. Enough said. Stock up now!
Hair Scarf Scrunchies! – $9.35 (Normally $11.99)
I love a hair scarf! These are super cute for fall/winter and also make great stocking stuffers.
Statement Earrings – $8.70 (Normally $10.99)
These statement earrings look high-end, but they’re only $8! These are also great stocking stuffers (and no one has to know what you spent on them!)
I would buy both of these boots right now for myself! I think the black boot is a staple, and the duck boots are great for a trip to the mountains or a rainy/snowy/cold day! I’ve always had good luck with any pair of shoes I bought at Target. These are both $39, so you’re looking at $20 for the second pair!
Gifts for the Pet Lover (or Mom)
ionVAC Robotic Vacuum – $99 (Normally $179)
I don’t personally have one of these, but I’ve heard people swear by them. I mean, $99 seems like a good deal for a robot who does some light cleaning for you! If you have pets, it for sure might be one to look at. This one is a better deal in comparison to the Shark.
Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Hand Vacuum – $49 (Normally $68)
I have some friends that rave about this brand, and I love this deal for a handheld vac. Speaking of vacuums, on my wishlist is this Bissell Cordless Vacuum (not on sale, but a great price!) or better yet, the Dyson cordless vac– you can get a refurb one on sale here. And I also want this Bissell power mop!
Deals on Toys
Electric Bumper Car – $149 (Normally $399)
I haven’t seen this toy before, but it looks so fun! It’s an electric bumper car! I can imagine being a kid thinking this was the coolest thing! It spins 360 degrees with a joystick controller. The age range specifies 1.5 – 6 years. I’m not sure I’d put my toddler in this thing, but for a 3-year-old to 6-year-old, yes!
Audi Electric Ride-On Car – $99 (Normally $149)
Okay, I’m not one of those moms that needs a brand name everything for their kid, but come on, this is so adorable! I always wanted an electric ride-on car as a kid, and my mom would never let me have one! I think this is too cute. Is it too early to get this for my toddler? It comes in black, blue and red! If it were me as a girl, I would have wanted this pink one!
Swing set – $279 (Normally $399)
$279 for a play set? What?! That’s a crazy good deal! If you’re looking for your tyke’s first play set, I think this is a great option.
Radio Flyer Wagon – $99 (Normally $149)
This is a classic – but with an upgrade! I love that this wagon is covered and has the seat backs on both sides. This might be going on my toddler’s wish list! I think this is great for a day at the ballpark, going to a parade, or for when they get bigger to carry their favorite toys to a friend’s house! (I’m thinking of 8-year-old me carrying my American Girl Dolls and Barbie’s to my next door neighbor’s house–this would have come in handy!)
Keyboard with Mic, Stand, and Stools – $104 (Normally. $199)
Do you have a little one who’s creative? I am all about letting kids explore their creativity at a young age! We had a keyboard in our playroom growing up, and I loved making up songs and playing music. I also took piano and voice lessons–didn’t get me too far, but it was fun! This set comes with a mic and the stools; such a great deal!
Pink (Or White) Play Kitchen – $109 (Normally $139)
