‘Tis the season for Amazon to save this elf’s behind as she shops for all the gifts, party supplies, holiday stuff and so.much.more. Today, I thought I’d grab all of my favorite Amazon finds from 2019 to share with you in case you need a gift idea. Grab some cocoa and settle in, I have lots of fun stuff below…
For Christmas last year, we bought all of the kids these Echo Dots for kids and have LOVED THEM! We use them for their alarm clocks, to play music, as an intercom system (I can from anywhere, call their rooms and talk to them), and so much more! I love that they have safeguards on there for kids and that I can pull up the Alexa app on my phone and read what they have been saying to it. Love, love, love these dots! Which brings us to our family’s…
So many of you told me that because I love the Echo Dots so much, I should buy an Echo Show for our whole family to use. You can read my post about it HERE, but we have enjoyed this so much! I love that it also plays music, TV shows and movies from the Prime app and that we can use our phones to call (and see!) into the kitchen to check on each other. Andrew calls all the time from work around 3:15 when he knows we’re all in there after school getting snacks and stuff and the kids can say hi. They can also ask the Show to call dad (or mom) any time too. Love it!
2019 was the year that the Shull family became diffuser people. We started diffusing oils in all of our bedrooms back in January and truly credit it to better sleep (and hopefully, it’s been keeping us healthy too!). I found these diffusers on Amazon and now, it’s all we use. We have five of them and use them every day. I love how they put off the oil intermittently for about 12 hours, how you can pick one of the dozen colors it can be or have the light off and just diffuse. They’re easy to clean, light and small. LOVE!
My heart belongs to the packing cube. From big overseas trips to weekend getaways, I will never not use them again. They 100% make packing so much easier, more organized, keep things from getting wrinkled, ruined and/or separated and if you buy everyone their own color, it helps keep everyone’s stuff from getting mixed together.
Speaking of things that have revolutionized my world, this Revlon dryer is one of them! I used to go to sleep with my hair wet and then wake up and go…but now, I just run this dryer over my almost dry hair and it really smooths it, tames it and gives it more volume. I also use this to completely dry my hair on days that I need to wash and immediately dry it. I do not leave home without this when traveling!
As silly as this sounds, this clothes drying rack is one of my faves! I love how it folds up small and can be tucked away, but when I need to dry my clothes, it opens up and has plenty of room for everything that cannot go in the dryer.
I get asked all the time what shoes people should wear when visiting NYC/Disney World/Europe/etc and my answer is always THESE!!! These Go Walks are the very best walking shoe! They’re light and so comfy. I also love how you can just throw them in the washing machine when they get dirty.
I’m so thankful for this little travel bag right here! It has gone almost everywhere with me this year when we’ve traveled. I love the compartments, I love the zipper storage, I love that it’s big and roomy and can be hung on a hook but folds up nice and neat. Love.
This right here is the number one toy played with at my house this year! My in-laws bought this for Madeley last Christmas and honest to goodness, there isn’t a day that goes by that it’s not used. My kids love it so much that I’ve actually gifted it to several kiddos this year.
Can’t stop, won’t stop with the velvet scrunchies. My girls and I all use them at home to pull our hair out of our faces. Because they’re so soft, they don’t damage or crease the hair. These would make great stocking stuffers as would…
…Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza. Buy it. I promise you, fun will be had!
This microfiber towel right here makes me so happy each and every time I use it! I have no idea why it took me so long to discover it, but I am so glad that I did!! We now have several at our house because all of the girls love using it. I really do think it cuts down on drying time.
My new very favorite thing are my Air Pods! Andrea was showing me hers while we were in Boston, so I bought them off of Amazon and now, I’m wondering where they’ve been all my life?!?! Seriously, they are so easy to use and convenient!! You know I’m not techy AT ALL, but these are so simple that even a non-tech person like me can use them. You literally just open the lid and bam, you can play music, listen to podcasts, talk on the phone, whatever as easy as that. And since the case charges the pods, it’s really easy to always have them ready to use. In fact, I’m on the flight home from NYC right now typing this blog post and wearing mine…while listening to Ella Fitzgerald sing Christmas songs 🙂 .
Speaking of Christmas, I have one more thing from Amazon today…
…how cute is my sweater?! This brand has like 20 choices, but since I love green so much, I picked that one. Soft, comfy and festive…all my favorite things!
Whew! That’s it! Okay, what’s the best thing you’ve bought off of Amazon this year??? I would love to know!!
