Hi, buddies! Let’s talk Thanksgiving, mkay? I’m a person of contradictions. I hate running late to anything, but I always seem to procrastinate things to the last minute. Anyone else feel me? So this year I’m starting all of my holiday planning early. This is why I’m posting these side dish recipes 3 before the big day! Let’s get prepared ahead of time! 🙂
Side note: I am not a great cook, so these recipes are not my original recipes. The links will lead to the original recipe. I hope this helps you all with your Thanksgiving game plan!
The Pioneer Woman’s Perfect Mashed Potatoes
Obviously my first suggestion is mashed potatoes. 😂 What’s Thanksgiving without this smooth and creamy dish?!
The time is upon us, my friends. The Holiday season is beginning. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Chelsea, it’s only November 1st.” I realize this, and I also know that many of you are probably already starting to think of what gifts you are going to buy. I have found that the best way to avoid a huge chunk of stress during this time is to start your shopping early.
This list is going to be specifically for women, and these are all items that I feel are affordable for almost any budget. Coming from someone who is on a very strict budget you can trust that I know a little about what’s “affordable” and what’s not.
I have been seeing a rise in popularity of these phone cases, and I can understand why. The design is great for larger phones that can be difficult to hang on to. Instead of wrapping your hand around the entire phone, or Pop Socket, you can easily slide a finger or two into the loop. The price for these cases is very reasonable as well!
Guys, I have a confession to make. I am a blanket junkie! There’s nothing better on a chilly morning that cuddling up on the couch under a soft blanket. As it turns out Target is the place to go if you are looking for some AMAZING blankets and throws! They are super soft, cute, and affordable! Who wouldn’t love receiving one of these as a gift?!
This is a local brand to me; these pieces are made in the town over from where I live. There’s nothing I love more than supporting local/small business. Especially those run by moms busting their hineys to make a wonderful life for their children! Liz makes wonderfully cute handmade pieces! You need to go check out her work!
It’s winter. It’s chilly. No one enjoys cold toes. I may be speaking for myself, but I LOVE soft cozy slippers. There are so many different options when it comes to buying slippers. You could easily buy every woman in your family a different pair and call it a day. Look at you getting all your Christmas shopping done at once, now you have time for wine. 😉
OMG. Guys. My mother-in-law just bought me a Sherpa pullover, and I can’t get enough of it! I almost look forward to getting up in the mornings just to put this on, note the word almost. Do the women in your life a favor and get them one, they are sure to love it!
Stop what you’re doing and try to think of one woman who wouldn’t love receiving some yummy smelling bath bombs. Go on, I’ll wait. Oh, you couldn’t think of anyone? Shocking! 😉
There you have it, folks. My first ever gift guide. This one is obviously specific for women, but, I do plan to make a few more! I hope this list was helpful! Do you start your shopping this early? Let me know how you felt about this list, and as always, thank you so much for reading!!
