LAST MINUTE Holiday Gift Guide! (All Items have 2 day shipping!)

LAST MINUTE Holiday Gift Guide! (All Items have 2 day shipping!)

I’m the WORST procrastinator. Evidence of that is the fact that Im finally getting around to writing this post 10 days before Christmas. HA! I’ve had it in my head to do this for weeks.

I DO think its possible to master the art of procrastination.. and its something BOTH my husband Rich and I are very good at. I recruited him to help me with this post- together we came up with a variety of gifts for different themes!

We tried to include 3 price tiers (Around $25, $50 and $100). They could be purchases as a set or individually! Everything is from Amazon Prime because I actually trust their shipping and they offer gift wrapping in most cases!  These are affiliate links so I will receive a small percentage from sales. All proceeds go towards keeping the blog up and new content coming! :)

At the time of posting this- all of these items were available. That might change as the week goes on and Christmas gets closer. So I encourage you to act quickly ..because if you procrastinate too long..well then you’ll have to actually go to the store. AND WHO wants to do that??

The Plant Lover

Generally Garden Centers and nurseries will have SOME of these plants but it can be hit or miss and some can be very hard to come by. So I spent some time digging deep into the internet to find a company that ships beautiful healthy plants - at a low cost. I spoke to a number of friends as well and the resounding answer over and over was that Ordering plants from Costa Farms OR Hirts Gardens on Amazon was the way to go. They arrive undamaged, healthy and beautiful. Linked below are some of my favorites! (Most of these plants range from $15-$50)
