I know everyone seems to be saying this, but it’s true – I CAN’T believe that it is already December and that we are in the thick of CHRISTMAS season. AHHH!!
Literally, one year ago today I found out I was pregnant and now I have an almost four month old baby. WHAT?! Crazy.
But anywho. Today we’re talking easy Christmas gift ideas.
I LOVE giving gifts. I love receiving gifts! But I probably love giving gifts more. Every year I pride myself on trying to get the best deals or come up with the most creative gift ideas for my friends and family.
But I’ll be honest, sometimes I make it way more difficult than it needs to be and I end up totally stressing out about what to get! Inevitably I’ll spend too much time thinking about it and then all of a sudden I find myself on Christmas eve or something scrambling to get a gift for somebody.
Well, that’s where GIFT SETS come into play. Sometimes a gift set really is the best Christmas present idea you can come up with – and that’s okay! I know I love gift sets. It takes the difficulty out of the present-buying process. You know?
Well, sure enough, Wal-mart has a surprisingly GREAT selection of fragrance gift sets for men, women, and teens (Justin Bieber’s GIRLFRIEND, anyone?). And they’re CRAZY affordable!
I really try to set a VERY strict budget for my Christmas shopping and I try to shoot for spending no more than $20 per friend that I’m buying for. Family, my husband, and my daughter are a little bit of an exception… 🙂 but even so, this year we’re really slashing our budget left and right since I’m only working from home part time now. So, to be honest, I’m being even EXTRA cautious on what I spend for Christmas gifts this year.
Anyway, I have a friend (she reads this blog so I don’t want to give away too much :)) who LOVES Britney Spears and LOVES fragrances and perfumes. As do I. I’ve got a pretty sweet perfume collection I’ve collected over the years.
Well, this Britney Spears FANTASY fragrance gift set at Wal-mart was $19.88! SCORE! Under $20. The PERFECT gift for my Britney fan and boom. We’re dealin’.
Not going to lie, though… have you ever smelled Britney Spears’ FANTASY? I know it’s been out for a long time, but I just now got around to actually smelling it and HOLY MOLY it smells so good!!
I’m not good at describing scents but it’s definitely got a flowery musky tone to it. I dunno. Alls I know is it smells awesome and I kinda sorta wanna keep this gift set for myself. 🙂 Would you judge me if I did? 🙂
There are a TON of different gift set options to choose from… so really if you’re looking for an easy gift idea – Wal-mart is the place to be.
I’m lucky because we literally live .02 miles from Wal-mart… AND it’s open 24 hours. I can’t tell you how often that has come in handy.
Oh, and for a kinda fun bonus, you get a free celebrity voice ringtone with the purchase of a fragrance gift set at Wal-mart. Random, I’m aware, but hilarious and awesome nonetheless.
