Christmas Gift Idea: Kohl’s for Men

*I was sent a giftcard to pick up a few items for my hubby for Christmas. All opinions in this post are mine and are honest.


Men can be tough to buy for. My hubby only wants clothes. I like to think outside the box and buy him fun items. This is one of the many reasons that I LOVE Kohl’s so much! They have huge displays in the men’s department with ideas of great gifts! There is something for the hunter, sports lover, grill master, gamer, and more! Here are a few that I saw this week:



When I am shopping for those who are hard to buy for, displays like this are REALLY helpful! They give me easy quick ideas and I can grab great items at good prices. Kohl’s is really good about having sales and/or coupons each week! Right now they have Kohl’s cash going on. This means that you will earn $10 for every $50 that you spend. When you factor that in and your coupon for savings, you have got a great deal!

Kohl’s is one of my favorite places to shop during the holidays. I find more gifts there then any other store. I feel like it’s one stop shopping. Thanks to my trip there this week, I can check a few things off my list for hubby and grandpa.

*I will have the Kohl’s Black Friday ad up as quickly as I get my hands on it! (They also have awesome Cyber monday deals that I will be posting as well!)



Christmas Gift Idea: AA and AAA Batteries

You can pick up 72-Pack Duracell AA Batteries or 72-Pack Duracell AAA Batteries – Tanga for just $27.98 shipped! This is a HOT price! Consider stocking your battery box or having them on hand for Christmas gifts that require them! It’s heart breaking on Christmas morning when your kiddos open a gift that requires them and you have none on hand! Been there…and no one was happy!

Christmas Gift Idea: Keurig for the Coffee Lover

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 10.08.53 PM

I love coffee, but my hubby does not. I can’t drink a whole pot myself and feel wasteful making that much. I got a Keurig last year and have fallen in love with it. It’s so easy to use and makes JUST the right size cup for me.

I don’t have to buy K-cups either…I can buy my own coffee and use a refillable cup! It’s been a huge blessing in our house…and my girls love to use it too for hot chocolate!

If you have a college student, single friend, or coffee lover on your Christmas list then you should consider a Keurig! Walmart has tons to choose from and prices range from less then $100 on up. You can buy tons of accessories for them at great prices as well!

Christmas Gift Idea: Fitbit for the Fitness junkie


I talk about my Fitbit a lot as I have found that it’s motivated me in a way that that I never expected! I am competitive and I love winning… I mean who doesn’t! Losing weight is not always easy and I need a social game to help keep me motivated. My Fitbit One has done that for me. I have over 80 friends that I keep up with and it’s motivated me to keep moving.

If you have a fitness junkie on your Christmas list this year, and they do not currently have a Fitbit, then it’s the PERFECT gift for them! There are a few different models and I’ve tried them all. I personally have the Fitbit One and my hubby uses the Zip. The Zip is the cheapest, followed by the One…then there are a few bracelet Fitbits. You can read my review of the bracelets here.

Walmart has a great deal on Fitbits and you can pick them up online or instore! Get a Fitbit One for less then $80 shipped!

Christmas Gift Idea: Powerslayer Kit

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 11.15.48 PM

Some people are hard to buy for. These are the people on my list that I look for creative, fun practical gifts for. I like gifts that are useful and not something I would buy for myself.

A Powerslayer Kit is just that! The Powerslayer Kit includes a Powerslayer, a USB cable of your choice and a travel case. It is designed to create a unique and considered experience. No more tangled cables or loose chargers – every element has its place.

What makes a Powerslayer a great gift? I charge my iPhone all night…every night. It doesn’t actually NEED to be plugged in all night but I am not going to wake up and unplug it once it’s charged. That is why a Powerslayer is awesome. It charges the phone until the battery is full, then it stops sending power to the phone. This is great for the battery life of the phone, long term.

You can order a Powerslayer on Amazon here for $39, or the full kit for $79 here.

Christmas Gift Idea: Eddie Bauer Jackets and Hoodies

Winter is coming, or so we hope here in Texas! It’s October and we are still having temps in the 90’s! Usually that means we will have a cold winter, and it will probably be cold for a few months! Chloe is prepared as she has this Eddie Bauer Girls’ MicroTherm® Hoodie. It’s very sleek and thin, light weight, yet very warm. Her jacket is their lightest down-insulated hooded jacket and can be worn on its own or under a shell for maximum warmth. (Her’s looks just like the bottom left picture…so cute!)
