It’s the fun time of the year where I’m sharing my favorite things of 2020! This list is comprised of all my favorite things I’ve used religiously throughout the year. If you’re looking for gifts for people on your list, this is one with some really great items! I hope you enjoy my favorite things and are able to knock out a bunch of people on your Christmas list with it!
1| Plush Cross Band Slippers– I’m not a slipper wearer usually, but I love my cross band slippers. They’re soft, cozy, don’t make my feet hot, plus they make me feel fancy. They’re actually so comfortable that on several occasions I have walked out my front door thinking that I had shoes on.
2| Pearl Barrettes– Another thing that makes me feel fancy- pearl barrettes! These just add a little extra fun in my hair when I want to look nice in a Zoom call for a client, or when I just want to look less of a hot mess in general. If you’re looking for a gift these would be great individually wrapped and put in a gift bag.
3| Weighted Blanket– Last Christmas everyone got weighted blankets, and I was the only one that didn’t ask for one. I didn’t understand the hype until Christmas morning when I couldn’t stop using my sister’s blanket. I was hooked. I asked the kids for a weighted blanket on Mother’s Day and have used it every night since.
5| Margrit Co Earrings– If you’ve been following me lately, you’ll know I’m a sucker for these gorgeous earrings and I have collected several pairs over the past few months. Maggie is a sweet friend of mine and I love that her business donates 15% of their retail sales to their Down With Business scholarship fund, supporting businesses owned and operated by individuals with Down Syndrome.
6| Cold Brew Mason Jar Coffee Maker– Mathew asked for a cold brew coffee maker for his birthday and I’ll tell you- this has become something we use every day for the both of us. I love how the coffee tastes with this method and it’s so easy to use. You just fill the metal filter with your favorite coffee, add cold water, and stick it in the fridge overnight. Some cold brew makers use disposable filters, but using the reusable filter makes me happy we’re being eco-friendly. Not to mention we save a ton of money by not going to Starbucks.
7| Katy Perry Jeweled Princess Flats– We all know 2020 has been a dumpster fire. So when my birthday rolled around this year I wanted something pretty that was just fun. I saw these on someone’s Instagram account and knew I had to have them even though I knew we weren’t getting out much. Where would I wear them? Who cares! I absolutely love my jeweled flats and think they’re so special. They come in pink, gold, black, and silver. I have the pink, but I am eyeing the silver too for the holidays.
8| Opalhouse Blanket Throw– These debuted last year at Christmastime and I couldn’t help but give as many of them to people we love as possible for Christmas. They’re soft, not too thick, very well priced, and I love the tassels. I’ve already bought a bunch of these blankets to give to another set of our favorite people for gifts this year. They’re that good!
9| Winter Nights Wonderland Collection– This one has been flying off shelves and I totally get why. I ordered the Winter Nights collection when the new Young Living holiday stuff came out and I fell in love. Winter Nights smells like winter snow falling in a forest. The oil is amazing diffused, the lotion is nice and thick (not watery but also not greasy), and the soap is foamy and perfectly scented. I’ve been telling everyone about it. It’s amazing! If you’re not a YL member already, my advice is grab a Basic Starter Kit as a member for $30 and then add the Winter Nights set to it. You’ll get 24% off the set and 24% off any subsequent orders.
10| Tie Dye Pajamas– These pajamas are the best ones I’ve probably ever had. I get hot easily at night but I love the shorts and long sleeve combo. These tie dye pajamas are soft, comfortable, and legit make me feel so put together, even when I’ve just woken up. I’m usually the kind of gal that sleeps in a big t-shirt, but these have converted me and I just need even more colors of it.
11| Impress Nails– We’ve been on a tight budget this year, but there have been some times for my job that I’ve needed my nails to look presentable. I’m loving Impress Nails because the designs are cute, the short length is perfect for me, and I can put them on fast. They’re much cheaper than going to the nail salon and I love the length they give.
12| Echo Dot– Our Echo Dot gets used practically all day every day. I love listening to music as I cook meals and our family is big on dance parties. There are a ton of functions on the Echo, other than playing music, like playing audiobooks and podcasts, tell the weather and news, control your smart home and more. It’s one of the best purchases we’ve made for sure and makes an amazing gift.
