Hello my friends!
I know a lot of you are like me in the way that I love a good deal. I have a hard time paying full price for almost anything.
That being said I have a gift closet. You might ask what that is? It is where I store the gifts that I buy throughout the year when I find great sales, and I save them for when I have someone’s birthday, a wedding or for Christmas. That way I’m always prepared, and I don’t have to run out and buy something at full price because I forgot Aunt Sally’s birthday. It also helps my budget when I don’t get slammed in December, having to buy everyone’s gifts all in one month! You also never know when the new neighbor from next door will pop over with a Christmas gift for you, and you have zilch for her and look like a schmuck.
I just run into my gift closet and pull out a pretty throw, and she’s none the wiser.
As many of you know, Nordstrom is having their giant Anniversary sale where they have tons of new Fall, just-hitting-the-floor merchandise on sale right now.
The today is the last day of the sale, and tomorrow all of the prices go back to normal. So this is an amazing time to stock up for goodies for your gift closet! If you know you have Grandma’s BD coming up, or your cousin’s wedding in November, pick up those gifts now.
I know a lot of office’s do a Secret Santa thing, and on both sides of my family we do a Dirty Santa game (where we all bring a gift of under $25 and we draw numbers).
Once December rolls around and there are a million Christmas parties to attend and school functions, it’s nice not to have to worry about these kind of things.
I rounded-up my favorite gift finds under $50 for you! Things that are great for both men and women, and all items I would like for myself … or I would give to my hubby!
