Oh my gosh!!! Christmas is ONE WEEK FROM TOMORROW!!!  HOW? WHAT?  This year has had many ups and downs, and has absolutely FLOWN by!  I cannot believe Christmas is in eight days!  Thankfully, Amazon has fast shipping for those last minute gifts and you don’t have to leave your home to do it!  Which, is a good thing for me today. My street is a sheet of ice!

Here are some great ideas for Christmas that you can get Mom and Dad. Some even for friends.  Check them out :).

DIA Natural Himalayan Crystal Gold Salt Lamp Natural Air Purifier Bedroom Lamp


These Salt Lamps are a hot ticket item right now and are selling like hotcakes!  Most of the ones I was looking at are not available until a few days before Christmas, or right after. So, if this is one you’re interested in, make sure to jump on it quickly! I’ve heard so many great things about the Salt Lamps that I’m planning to get one for my bedroom as well as my daughters.

Your mom would absolutely LOVE this. What could be better than having photos of their children or grandchildren around their home. This is a beautiful sentimental photo frame sharing the importance of family.

Plant Theatre Bonsai Trio Kit


If your mom or dad or a good friend has a love for plants and trees?  This Bonsai kit is the way to go. This kt has everything that is needed to grow not just one Bonsai, but three of them. Great for either their home or even their desk at work. Something to brighten up their day when they need a little breather 🙂

Live Infinitely 32 oz. Infuser Water Bottles


We all like to have flavored water. What better way to get it than to have a cute water bottle with an infuser? These water bottles are bright and well, yes, absolutely fun to look at!

Number 1 Mom Wine Glass 13 oz


Very few moms don’t like a good glass of wine!  Let’s remind mom that she is number one in your life while she is winding down from a hectic day at work, or just from dealing with the littles! 🙂

This is the perfect gift for that bird lover in your life.  They could have this on their window and enjoy it while drinking their morning cup of java 🙂

“Worlds Coolest Dad” Engraved on Brew House Beer Chillers


This is such a cool idea!  Excuse the pun of course!  lol.  This gift idea comes with a set of two stainless steel chillers with World’s Coolest Dad engraved on them. They fit into most standard sized beer bottles and keeps their beer cold longer. They are a total of 8.5″ high. The neck is made from a strong rubber which allows the Beer Chiller to seal tightly around most bottle tops, leak free! The lid feels more comfortable on your lips than the bottle.
