Christmas is just 10 days away! I cannot believe it! Each year, I tell myself my Christmas shopping will be completed by the first or second week of December. That never happens! Once again, it's December 15, and I'm still searching Amazon for gift ideas.



In case you're still searching for gifts as well, I thought it might be helpful to share some last-minute gift ideas. All of these items are less than $25, are highly rated, and are available from Amazon Prime. I checked on delivery dates today, and most of the items would arrive at my house by December 18 if I ordered today.


WyzeCam Indoor WiFi Smart Home Camera

I have had a WyzeCam for several years, and it works so well! When we are on vacation, the camera notifies us when it senses activity in our home, and we can watch to make sure everything is okay. We’ve even used it as a baby monitor! It's simple to set up and use. You can't beat the price point, either!



Kitchen Gizmo Snap N Strain Strainer/Clip-On Colander

I'm always looking for these types of kitchen gadgets. Because this compact strainer has such incredible ratings and will fit most pots, pans, and bowls, we just had to order one. The Gizmo should be here in a couple days.




This is such a fun twist on the classic game, Bingo. It's great for young kids and is recommended for ages 4+. Zingo has won many awards including an Oppenheim Gold, Parents' Choice Award, ASTRA Best Toys for Kids Award, and is a three-time Toy of the Year Nominee.



Universal Socket Grip with Power Drill Adapter

This is perfect for any tool lover! Amazingly, this attachment for both power drills and a manual ratchet instantly adjusts to grip feisty little pieces that are sometimes hard to grip, such as most metric, wing nuts, broken nuts, stripped nuts, eye bolts, square nuts, hexes, etc. Just the fact that it works with stripped nuts makes me want to buy one for those frustrating I-can’t-get-this-out moments!


DASH Rapid Egg Cooker

I have a friend who loves these DASH products! I’m sold on it because, truthfully, I’m just too lazy sometimes to make hard-boiled eggs the old-fashioned way. This new little gadget is going to get used a lot in this house!



Lego Chain Reactions Science/STEM Activity Kit

I can just imagine some of the smart kids I know being mesmerized with this kit. It provides all of the elements needed to design and build 10 moving machines. I know I would have loved this as a kid! It’s recommended for kids ages 8+.


Wool Dryer Balls

I was just chatting with my Dad this week about their switch from dryer sheets to wool dryer balls. OK. I know this would not be an exciting present for someone who is looking for thrills and entertainment, but, for the practical person in your life, this gift would allow them to try something new that is good for their skin, their fabrics, and their wallet. (It’s a money saver.)

The Complete Cookbook for Young Chefs

We have so many young friends who are surprisingly talented in the kitchen. They love to have baking contests, feed the family, and generally make a big mess in the kitchen. 😊 I'm so impressed! This would be a great gift idea for other like-minded chefs since it offers loads of helpful tips and tricks and provides young people with the foundational principles of cooking and baking.


Popco Silicone Microwave Popcorn Popper

This silicone microwave popcorn popper would make a great family gift this Christmas! The silicone bowl holds up to 15 cups of popcorn. Just reading the reviews on this product makes me so hungry for popcorn! (I am especially craving popcorn this year, I guess, because I have not had any at a movie theater thanks to the pandemic!)



Magazine Subscription: Magnolia Journal

I absolutely love receiving magazine subscriptions as gifts! One of my favorites is the Magnolia Journal, but there are many wonderful magazines for lovers of home decor, cooking, travel, etc., that would also be excellent gift choices.
