Shop Small Online: Gift Guide for the Women in Your Life ((Discount Codes Included))

I do not know about you, but there is nothing less I want to do the day after Thanksgiving then leave the house.

Some people are thrilled with Black Friday, I just do not like crowds! Not to mention, most of my Christmas shopping is already done. You can see how I did that here. I only needed to find a few more gifts and was able to purchase them all online, at small shops! I am truly looking forward to Shop Small Saturday. This year, as a blogger, my relationships have grown with small shops. I have seen their hard work and dedication. Their items are one of a kind, and small shops really are the backbone of America.

Mugs, Bags and Towels

My newest favorite shop is Copper Two. This is a shop run by two beautiful mamas. All of their handmade products are gorgeous and I know my momma friends are going to love them! If you shop online Saturday the discount code SHOPSMALL will give you a 30% discount. Whoo hoo!

Handmade Signs

Next, we have Wood You Ever Shop. This mama of two boys makes the cutest wood signs and state plaques! She gifted me with one of these last Christmas and my husband loves it! She customized it with his favorite team and it hangs proudly in his office.

Similar to Wood You Ever Shop, but also a bit different and just as gorgeous, are the wood signs made by LeighAllisonDesign. Her focus is the calligraphy and I must say, she is so talented!

Jewelry and Art

Another great small shop worthy of an online purchase is LucyandtheSheriff. This shop features one-of-a-kind jewelry and art. If your lady loves Harry Potter, Supernatural or Dr. Who, this is the place to shop! I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my bracelet! (I am gifting it to myself.)

Embroidery Decor

The next shop reminds me so much of my own home growing up, I could not resist a purchase! NellieandMolls hand embroiders a work of art to display in your home. I tried to learn embroidery when I was younger-it did not look like this! Use code TURKEYDAY for free shipping.

Pillows and Furniture

This shop Suzie Anne, began as a transformation of old furniture and has turned into furniture and pillows. The pillows can be shipped in the U.S. and the furniture can be picked up in the Anaheim area. These ladies work miracles with furniture!

Customized Tees

Last and most certainly not least, are the tees from Mama Bird & Co. She makes each tee by hand and I can totally relate to all of these messages! My coffee shirt is one of my favorite tees in my closet. (Oops opened that one early!) Use code SHOP15 for a 15% discount on these adorable tees.

I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday shopping online!

Please note: These are my personal opinions. Some items have been given to me at a reduced rate, some were free and others I paid for myself! If you have questions, please email me.

Christmas Shopping in October

I know, I know. It is way too early for a Christmas post, but I am just too excited and had to share this with you guys.

Last week, we had to go to Costco to get our tires rotated. If I am being completely honest I left the store upset, without my tires rotated the first time. Due to a few things; customer service was absolutely horrendous and I had a cranky toddler. In retrospect, my timing was not good. My son was ready for his nap and I should not have tried to go out when I did.

However, we returned a few nights later for my mother-in-law to purchase our son’s Halloween costumes. She buys their costumes every year and we decided to all meet there after various activities and have dinner after buying the costumes. As we were walking through the aisles, I noticed they had some amazing toys the boys would love for Christmas.

As you may or may not know, Costco is constantly changing what they have in their stores. I mentioned to my husband that we could probably complete our Christmas shopping in one stop, but we had to do it soon. I was trying to figure out how to make our finances work for this when I remembered, I had been saving for months!

In July, I opened a savings account with a company called digit.co. They set aside savings based upon your account specifically. The reason I had forgotten about this account was because it had been working so well, I never missed the money that was being saved. I looked at the account and realized it had more than enough to buy the gifts we wanted to purchase! I was ecstatic!

This morning, I put my toddler in the car (nowhere near nap time) and finished the bulk of our Christmas shopping. The loot is pictured below!

You can sign up for your own digit account here. All of the money is FDIC insured and if you start saving now you might be set for Christmas, too! If not, there are always reasons to save money; vacations, birthdays, retirement.The list goes on and on.

Happy shopping, friends!!

Shhhh, don’t tell my kids!

Hey mom, this piece of pizza is huge!


Can I play with this now?
