30. Soft baby photo album (we have this one and Emma Ramey LOVES it...this is a great way to keep talking about family members from out of town!)
Hope this helps some of y'all!
And, speaking of a certain infant's stocking, here's a preview of what I'm working on...
...I have had this since LONG before Emma Ramey was ever a thought. I am working to try to get it done by the first of December - I want her to have it for her first Christmas!
I am a year round shopper. I haven't done a great job this year (what, with the newborn and all...), but I did start about August really looking for gifts. I'm still going, but I'd say I'm a solid halfway done with my shopping.
For those gifts I haven't bought yet, I keep a running list. It's just in the notes section of my phone...as I think of a gift, I put it on there. When I buy it, it gets starred, and if I've finished buying for a person, their name gets starred. This is the easiest way for me to keep track of things!
Some of my favorite websites to use for shopping are...
- ebates (Click through this site to a retailer's site to get a rebate on your purchase - simple as that!)
-Shop at Home (Similar to ebates...I always check this site if ebates doesn't carry a retailer)
-Facebook sale pages - some of my current favorites are Stitched and Smocked, Smockadot, SheShe Made, Smocking Beauty (check back in a few days for more details on that!)
I have a full post I'm planning for Black Friday that shares some of my favorite specials I'm seeing. I'm planning on getting a good bit of my remaining shopping done that day and on Cyber Monday - you really can get the best deals on those days!
And the ladies over at the Chirping Moms are having a "Yellow Friday" event this weekend...click the button for more details on that!
In the gift wrapping department...
I've tried to get a head start on wrapping this year too! I found all of this wrapping at Hobby Lobby - how adorable is it?? I kind of wanted to get away from the busier prints this year, so I thought this was perfect. I still need to get green wrap though. The best part - all of this was half off a couple of weeks ago, and I think I saw yesterday that it is this week too!
