We've all been there - the holidays have snuck up on us and we still need to grab a few last minute gifts before the big day! Well, we are just a few weeks away and I've got you covered. Here are five gift ideas that will be a big hit and won't break the bank. Plus, I've included some specials for you as well! There's also a big giveaway to receive a FREE item at the end of this post!
Note: I do not receive compensation for any sales or any posts on this website. I only post my opinion.
5. Mugs from Sassy Pearls of Wisdom
Amy Kate, owner of Sassy Pearls of Wisdom is just a sweetheart and is as talented as can be. I ordered custom mugs from her when I asked my girlfriends to be my bridesmaids. They were perfect! She even included a special tag that read, "Will you be my bridesmaid?." They were each unique and custom made to fit their personalities and the girls loved them.
She doesn't just design mugs though. She also creates t-shirts, home decor, bags, name plates, and the list goes on. She has fun, loving, family friendly items, as well as some hilarious, adult approved items...I'll let you poke around her Instagram for those. Ha! She has some ready to go - browse here - or you can request a custom order with you choice of saying or name.
Currently, she is holding a last call for custom mugs and shirts, so if you would like to order something special, get in touch with her as soon as possible so you can have your gifts in time for Christmas! You won't regret it.

4. Easy Wine Opener
For all my fellow wine lovers out there, I have found the hands down, absolute best and easiest wine opener out there. We received it as a wedding gift and let me tell you, it is a game changer. Plus, it's only $29.99! It was one of our favorite gifts and now we are giving it to our friends and family for weddings, birthday, the holidays, etc.
It's the Brookstone Connoisseurs Compact Wine Opener from Bed Bath & Beyond. No tugging, no struggle, and no hoping and praying the cork doesn't crumble. It makes opening a bottle of wine effortless and smooth and only takes a matter of seconds.

3. The Glam Room

Grab a gift card from The Glam Room and I promise it won't disappoint! Who doesn't want to be treated at a relaxing spa and beauty bar? This place has it all too. From hair cuts to waxing, to massages and facials, plus lash lifts and extensions. It has all your beauty needs. Click here for a full list of services offered. I am at The Glam Room on a regular basis and get everything done here. I highly recommend their services. My favorites are The Glam Facial and the 80 minute Swedish Massage with hot stones - fantastic!
This would be a wonderful gift for a girlfriend, co-worker, or invite mom to make it a mother/daughter spa day and try a few services! Or surprise the hubby with a romantic evening for two and book a couples massage.
Because I am at The Glam Room so often, I asked the owner if I could treat our readers to a special this holiday season. They graciously offered to take $20 off your first service of $50 or more if you show them the photo below when booking your appointment! If you are making an appointment over the phone, just let them know you have this.

Earlier this week, I posted about my experience with Lipsense. Overall, it has been phenomenal. I truly love this stuff. It is so easy, it lasts through the day, and I never have to reapply or worry if my lipstick still looks fresh. I was skeptical, but after trying it for myself, I'm onboard 100%.

This would be a great stocking stuffer or the perfect gift for a gal pal. I ordered my colors and gloss fromTara's Style lounge. I asked Tara if I could feature her page here on the blog and offer a discount to our readers! She agreed, so be sure to mention this post and you'll get $5 off of your order.
There are hundreds of colors to chose from, I am loving Roseberry and Pink Champagne!

1. Smart Devices
The Google Home Mini or the Amazon Echo Dot - both are hot commodities right now. We have an Amazon Echo Dot and it is incredible. You say, "Alexa," and then ask her to stream music, create a running list of needed grocery items, or just ask about the forecast for the day or use it as a timer. Its really convenient.
Since I don't have the Google Home Mini, here's an excerpt on how it works - "Just start with “Ok Google” to get answers from Google, tackle your day, enjoy your entertainment, and control your smart home. And when you ask for help, it can tell your voice from others for a more personalized experience."
To me, they seem about the same, plus they are each available for $30. Do some research and figure out which one you like best, but either way, you can't go wrong. This really is a perfect gift for anyone on your list!
