It’s the 4th of November, so we’re basically well into the holiday season at this point. This post is a great way to both expose my somewhat shopaholic tendencies and also give anyone reading some early ideas on gifts. Amazon Prime has been my go-to for shopping for a while now, and I can admit that I might’ve bought a little too much this year.
Here are my top 5 picks (in no particular order).
1. EXPO Low Odor Dry Erase Markers, Ultra-Fine Tip, Assorted Colors, 8 Pack
I’ve had a dry erase calendar for a couple of years now and it’s helped me so much with keeping up with school work. I decided to buy these markers because of the ultra-fine tip, but I didn’t think it would make that big of a difference. Thankfully, it’s been super helpful with fitting all my assignments/responsibilities in each calendar box. It also has made my calendar look so much better, so I’d definitely recommend this as a gift.
2. Percy Jackson and the Olympians Hardcover Boxed Set
I don’t typically buy my books from Amazon Prime, but I’m happy to say that the boxed set looks gorgeous. I can’t wait to read the books for the first time, and I’m definitely planning to finish the books in time for the new Disney+ series. I’ve always loved getting books as a gift and if you have anyone that likes to read, you can’t go wrong with books.
To be honest, I only got this because I saw it on Twitter. But I have to say it’s been really fun taking some time (almost) every day to build the book nook. I’m almost done with it, and I think I’ve done a pretty good job of following the instructions, even though there are a lot. This could be a fun gift for anyone that likes arts and crafts.
This is the most recent purchase on the list, but it’s definitely proven to be one of the most useful. Who doesn’t love a good self-care gift? It’s super effective and something I’ve been meaning to get for a while.
5. BlackGirlSunscreen (BGSS) SPF 30 Sunscreen
I was a doubter of BGSS for some time, but I figured that I might as well give into the hype and try it out anyways. I’m so happy I bought it because it’s probably the best sunscreen I’ve used. I’m no skin care expert but it doesn’t leave a white cast on my face, and it basically melts into my skin. Skin care is always an easy gift that is sure to be used!
