2017 Holiday Season has commenced.

Who wants to go to the mall and go shopping!!!!!?????


The mall is a horrible place to be this holiday season particularly if you have a bunch of littles with you. They cry, they run away, they ask you to take them to the pretzel place, they lick the floor. 

Don’t do that to yourself.

Plus these gifts are for YOU. Maybe you’ll order them for yourself as a little “Hey I’m worth it” gift or maybe you forward this post onto your significant other.

Either way, lets click “Add to Cart” then sit by the fire with a cup of coffee and call it a day.

First Up…..

Gifts for Fitness Lovers

RX Jump Rope | Enso Silicone Rings | Lululemon Yoga Mat | CAP Dumbbells | Mini Resistance Bands

Here’s What You Need To Know

  • RX Jump Ropes: are far and away the best jump rope I’ve ever owned. I don’t stand a chance of getting 1 double under without one.
  • Enso Rings: I used to go ringless to the gym and to yoga. Since I kind of like letting people know I’m married I got on the silicone ring bandwagon. Enso’s rings are super fashionable. Pick a few different colors and mix and match. Plus avoid potential ring avulsion.
  • CAP Dumbbells: are what fills my home gym. I like the rubber ends because you can be a little rougher on them. Really though, you just need yourself a couple sets of dumbbells if you workout at home.
  • Mini Resistance bands: are the best money you’ll ever spend. For under $10 you can have 3 bands designed to get your glutes working real quick. Bonus that they easily fit into your luggage for travel.

Oxo Salad Chopper | Peace Coffee | Fancy Glass Straws | All Clad Egg Pan | Skinny Taste Cook Book | Breville Grind Control Coffee Pot | Yeti Tumbler

Here’s What You Need To Know

  • Oxo Salad Chopper. If you follow me on Instagram Stories you know I’m a big fan of this gadget. It very quickly chops your salads which, in my opinion, makes them much more palatable (look at me with big words). Bonus points if you eat your salad in the big ass bowl 
  • Peace Coffee: I picked up a bag of this at Whole Foods earlier this year and I’m obsessed. The morning glory or twin cities blends are my personal favorite.
  • Fancy Glass Straws: If they are good enough for Oprah they are good enough for me. ????????
  • All Clad Egg Pan: Ok this thing changed my life. Yes it’s expensive but it cooks eggs like a charm and clean up is a cinch.
  • Skinny Taste Cookbook: All the recipes in this guy are either Fast or they are slow cooker recipe (Get it, Fast and Slow). Normally I throw cookbooks in a drawer and never go back to them. Not this one, I dig it out weekly.
  • Breville Coffee Pot: If my house was burning down and my family was safe I would go back for my coffee pot. It’s that good. AND when my mother in law poured water in the grinding chamber and fried the thing Breville sent me a new one. Can’t beat that.
  • Yeti Tumbler. If you’re a big fan of water (and coffee) you’ve got to snag a Yeti tumbler. 30 oz which means drink 3 of them a day and you’ve hit your water goal. Plus it keeps everything nice and cold (or hot) AND it fits in your cupholder. Don’t forget to grab the straw lid.

Gifts For the Fashionable Mom

Lululemon Brushed Tights | James Michelle Bar Necklace | Capri Blue Volcano Candle | Spanx Moto Leggings | Living Proof Dry Shampoo | Cozy AF Socks

Here’s What You Need To Know:

Lululemon Brushed Tights: Fleeced lined wunder unders. Sign me up. Perfect for the cold midwestern winters.

James Michelle Bar Necklace: I spent almost an entire year looking for the perfect necklace to put my girls’ names on. This one was worth the wait. Check out the rest of her jewelry too, you’ll love it.

Capri Blue Volcano Candle: If you come to my house chances are you will notice how it smells. This candle is burning pretty much 24/7 at the Osby house. In fact many of my friends associate the smell of it with me so there is that. If you’re local to the Des Moines area consider picking one up at my favorite locally owned Boutique, Blond Genius. Tell them I sent you!

Spanx Moto Leggings: Stop what you are doing and add these to the cart NOW. They are everything. Flattering and sexy, I feel confident as hell when I’m wearing these.

Living Proof Dry Shampoo: Before Living proof I washed my hair every 3 days. After Living Proof its more like 5-6 days and it still looks great. No one has time to wash their hair anymore, get yourself a bottle of this.

Cozy AF Socks: Ok that is not the official name, but that’s what I’m calling them. I LOVE a pair of warm slouchy socks this time of year. These are a current fav of mine.

Gifts for the Techy Mom

Beats Over Ear Noise Reducing Headphones | Felix Gray Blue Light Glasses | Audible Membership | Blinkist Membership | Apple Watch 

Here’s What You Need To Know

Beats Over Ear Noise Reducing Headphones: Earlier this year I upgraded to wireless headphones and despite my husbands constant shaming of them, I think they are great. They are noise reducing which I like when I travel, it helps drown some of the noise that sets of my anxiety. Don’t care about noise canceling? Try the on ear option and save some money. The gold ones you’ve seen me post on instagram can be found HERE.

Felix Gray Bluelight Glasses: Ok stick with me a second here, because this one is a little weird. I have a really hard time falling asleep at night if I’ve been watching TV or on my phone before bed. I learned recently that some of the lights from screens can be a culprit behind my laying in bed for an hour trying to fall asleep. These glasses block some of the blue lights emitted from your devices. So far I have noticed a big difference in my ability to fall asleep. So crazy or not they made the list.

Audible Membership: Don’t have time to read? Try an audiobook. Audible gives you your first one free. Can I recommend I’m Fine and Other Lies by Whitney Cummings? Hilarious and Insightful.

Blinkist Membership: Blinkist gives you a 15 minute written or audio (depending on your membership level) summary of thousands of books. Learn just enough to be dangerous.

Apple Watch: 2017 marked the year I upgraded from the fitbit to the Apple Watch. Super cute, counts my steps and keeps me really mindful to stay active when I’m wearing it. Pretty much all activity trackers will do that, but this one is cute so it’s my favorite. #BasicBitch

That is IT! 

I hope you have a fantastic and relaxing holiday season with your family. And don’t forget….

Cheers to 2018!
