My theory for Christmas gifts is do less but more quality… the kids are only getting a couple of gifts but AJ and I have really thought about what they most need or what they will love playing with the most. We are doing one bigger toy, one smaller one, a book and one to two clothing items. I got almost every single thing this weekend on some form of a Thanksgiving weekend sale. We want to remember what Christmas is really about and not just center it around the gifts but because giving is such a fun part of Christmas I wanted to share some of my favorite places that are having deals galore today… after all who wants to be paying for things long after Christmas is over?!? No me. We have a set budget for each person we are giving to and my thought is that if I could purchase almost everything this past weekend or today then I’m getting nicer things for people with the budget we have.
Pottery Barn has free shipping on your whole order plus 30% off all ornaments. I just snagged this tree banner there the day! Pottery Barn Kids has 20% off your order PLUS free shipping! Loads of our Christmas ornaments are from Pottery Barn as well as all of our dishes, many of our serving pieces and some of the accent pieces in Elle’s room.
Overstock has loads of amazing deals today plus an additional 5% back if you log in your Ebates account (I’ve saved a good amount this season because of this!). The rug in our master bedroom and the two armless chairs in our living room are from Overstock.
Wayfair has up to 80% off… I just scored a stainless steel pot set and two little trees for the kids room from here for $60 total! And you know I love them because we have two headboards from there and our nightstands from Joss & Main (a Wayfair company).
I’m a huge fan of Kate Spade… especially when her pieces will last for years. I just bought one of her wallets with birthday money (below) on Black Friday and have my eye on about 1000 of her bags. 🙂 Right now she’s having 30% off everything and there is an additional 7% off when you use your Ebates account.
The leopard print clutch (above) from Banana Republic was a birthday gift my mom and I shopped for together… they are sold out online but you may be able to find it in the store. It’s big enough to fit an iPad. I scored at their factory store this weekend and today Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic are having 40% off EVERYTHING, PLUS free shipping on purchases over $50 PLUS Ebates is offering 6-10% cash back!
Lastly, Amazon has so many gorgeous Mariposa pieces… and I think some are on sale today!
