It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Tis’ the season for gift giving! Ryan and I both come from fairly large families and therefore have many gifts to buy every year. Finding great gifts on a budget is a must. Here are a few Amazon gifts for her that are under $25:

Amazon Gift Guide:
I don’t know about you, but the men in my family seem to be the hardest to buy for. They never know what they want so it’s a guessing game for me. I included some of the things that the fellas in my life have and love as well as some things that have amazing reviews on Amazon.
Below are more gifts for men from other retailers that include some personalized gifts and more!
More Gifts for Men:
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Target just released their Christmas decor and it is so good! You guys know how much I love fall, but I also love the holidays. Growing up, my mom always made the holidays so special for us and the season was full of traditions. Ryan and I have created our own traditions with our four children that we look forward to every year, now. One of them is decorating on November 1st. I know this is a “no-no” for some, but the way I look at it is, I do not host Thanksgiving and I like to enjoy the Christmas decor for more that one month (or less than) because it is a lot of work. haha
I rounded up some of my favorites from this year’s Target Christmas decor (above). I love that they included a mixture of modern, traditional and vintage this year.
When do you decorate for Christmas?
There are so many great sales happening this weekend! It is a great time to stock up on fall clothing and shoes for the family as well as start working on those Christmas gifts! I’m linking some of my favorite sales below!
It’s almost time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Who’s ready to shop? We are one week away from shopping day (for early access shoppers) and I am getting so excited! I thought today would be the perfect day to go ahead and post my first look favorites to make things easier for you to shop. You can go ahead and click on the items you know you want and add them to your wishlist to shop quickly and easily. I’ve already been adding things to my personal wish list! Here are my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale favorites:
Coats and Jackets:
It is almost time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 which is by far my favorite sale of the year! I have always saved and planned ahead for this sale in order to snag some of my favorite brands at a discounted price and stock up on all of my favorite fall basics. This year, the sale will be slightly different than previous years, however you will still be able to find designer brands on sale and save on your favorite fall finds! I will be sharing try ons and all of my picks from the sale on my blog, Instagram (and Insta Stories) and my newsletter, so be sure to follow along for all the deals!
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Every year, Nordstrom puts their brand new fall and winter items on major sale (usually around 40% off) for a limited time before they go back up in price for the season. Everything sells out so fast, so be sure to add everything to your cart and check out very quickly. That is key.
When Does the Sale Start?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 opens to the public August 19th – August 30th! Prices go back up on August 31st. You can shop the sale early if you have been approved for a Nordstrom Card. If you are approved to shop the sale, Early Access begins August 13th – August 18th! That means you get to shop the sale a whole week early! I highly recommend getting a Nordstrom Card (apply HERE) in order to shop the sale during Early Access because things sell out so quickly. Bonus: If you sign up and get approved for a card then make a purchase you will receive a $60 note (credit) to shop the #NSALE!
Preview the Sale!
This year Nordstrom is putting all of the Anniversary sale items on their website for you to preview them instead of doing a catalogue! This will allow you to add the items you want to your wish list and allow you to check out much faster the day you can shop the sale! I highly recommend doing this to save time and help ensure you get the items you want. The preview will be live THIS FRIDAY July 24th!
Why should I shop this sale?
This is the only sale where they where everything is 100% brand new inventory that you can purchase before the season even begins at a discounted price. You can also score brand names and designer labels on SALE! Think: brand new Tory Burch fall items up to 40% off! You will be able to score the season’s hottest jeans, boots, jackets and more all at a discounted price. Trust me, if there is ever a sale to shop, this is the one.
How should I shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
I will be doing my personal shopping on Nordstrom.com this year, however, if you live near a store, you can do that as well. I have shopped both in store and online in the past and have found that there is so much more online, so I prefer that option. I highly recommend bookmarking my blog so you can come here and shop all of my picks quickly and easily without sifting through pages and pages. I will also be sharing lots of collages and favorites in the LIKEtoKNOWit app so make sure you are following me along there as well as Instagram! I will be posting a try on in my Insta Stories as soon as I get my goodies as well. Which ever option you choose, I recommend you shop quickly and check out fast. That is key in this sale because things sell out right before your eyes.
My advice for shopping the sale:
Shop early, shop quickly and shop smart! I always do a closet inventory of items I need for fall (ex. leggings, jeans, cardigans, workout clothes, boots, etc.) and make sure that I grab those first. I try to buy the things that I know I will need and wear a lot throughout the season but don’t want to pay full price for. I highly, highly recommend applying for the Nordstrom card ASAP so that you can shop the sale early! Apply HERE!
I am so looking forward to this year’s sale and sharing all of the best sale finds with you this year! Make sure you follow me on Instagram and LIKEtoKNOWit and bookmark this page so you can come back and shop my picks!

I haven’t shared Amazon finds in a while, but I have ordered so many random things during quarantine and thought I’d share some! Amazon has been a life saver lately and so convenient.
These sunglasses and the cutest vintage style! I love the style and they are so affordable!
We ordered this mosquito lantern a few weeks ago and it has worked so well. We have used it on our back porch and have had a positive experience with it. It’s so low maintenance and I love the look of it.
The beach bag is so cute and comes in several sayings.
The make-up cleaning pad is something I just ordered and have not used yet. My brushes need a scrub down, so I’m excited to get it in and use it!
The fabric defuzzer is on my wish list but it has great reviews and I know others who have it and love it!
The electric lighter is also on my wish list! It looks so chic and I’ve been wanting to try it out!
This initial ring is so adorable!
I recently ordered this game and it is so fun! It’s easy to play (my oldest two can play it) and is great for family game nights!
I love these simply modern tumblers! I love that they come with a lid and straw! They make getting to my daily water goal so much easier!
These eye masks have been a new found favorite! I’ve tried to up my beauty/skincare during this time of staying at home more and I have really loved using these once or twice a week.
These flip flops are another favorite. I’ve worn them so much and they are very comfortable but also go with everything!
We are just over one week away from Father’s day, so I am rounding up Fathers day gifts from Target, Nordstrom and of course – Amazon! I am all about that prime life and tend to order things so last minute, so Amazon prime is there for me every. single. time. I hope you are able to find something for all the dads in your life and as always, if you know of a perfect gift I need to add to the list, let me know in the comments!
