Holiday Shipping CutOff Dates


Can you believe that Christmas Eve is in ONE WEEK?!?  I still haven’t wrapped a single present this year.  Although I do have all of the wrapping paper I need since I might’ve gone a little overboard a few years ago at the Target 90% off Christmas clearance sale (and by “a little overboard” I mean that I might have all of the wrapping paper that I will need for the rest of my life.)

If you’re buying last-minute Christmas gifts this year, then you’ll want to take note of all of the “Guaranteed Shipping For Christmas” deadlines below.  Also, tomorrow, December 18th is FREE SHIPPING DAY which is when a lot of retailers celebrate what’s typically the last online shopping day for regular shipping with FREE SHIPPING offers!

Top 10 Best White Elephant Gifts Round-up!

Top 10 White Elephant Gifts

White Elephant Gift Exchange: In its most basic form, the game is as follows: Each participant supplies one wrapped gift. The gifts are placed in a central location, and participants determine in what order they will take turns selecting them. The first person opens a wrapped gift and the turn ends. On subsequent turns, each person gets the choice of “stealing” any unwrapped item or choosing a wrapped one from the gift pile. When a player’s gift is stolen, they must select a replacement gift from the pile of wrapped presents. The game is over when the last person has taken their turn. Source: Wikipedia

White Elephant Gift Exchange parties are always my favorite! There are several different variations like only giving items that you are re-gifting, giving used items, giving items that you found at a garage sale, or only buying items under a certain price point.

If you’re heading to a White Elephant party this year, here are my top 10 favorite White Elephant gifts that you can buy on Amazon.

Bacon Soap

1. Bacon Soap – who wouldn’t want to smell like bacon??

Banana Slicer

2. Banana Slicer – because everyone could use an extra 10 seconds in their day.

Dehydrated Cereal Marshmallows

3. Dehydrated Cereal Marshmallows – They were the only part of Lucky Charms that I ate anyway. They even sell them in 40 lb boxes!!

Nicholas Cage Pillowcase

4. Nicholas Cage Pillowcase – What could be better than sleeping on a picture of Nicholas Cage’s face?

Uranium Ore

5. Uranium Ore – and it’s on sale too! ;)

Toilet Bowl Mug

6. Toilet Mug – even the person who has everything probably doesn’t have this.

Talking TP Roll

7. Talking Toilet Paper Spindle – or if you don’t want to record your own message, you can have this one sing Christmas songs instead.

Justin Bieber Singing Toothbrush

8. Justin Bieber Singing Toothbrush – doesn’t everyone want to hear Justin Bieber sing while they brush their teeth?

Cat Hair Crafts

9. Crafting With Cat Hair – why throw away the cat hair on your furniture when you can make things with it instead?

Bacon Toothpaste

10. Bacon Flavored Toothpaste – forget mint and cinnamon, your breath can smell like BACON!!

140 Custom Address Labels/Gift Tags For Only $5 SHIPPED Available Again!

Dec

2013
Wednesday

The super popular deal on 140 return address labels/gift tags for only $5 SHIPPED is back! That gets you labels for only 4¢/each shipped!

These work as great looking gift tags or even as envelope seals. Here are some ideas from Vistaprint on how to use them:

  • Save tons of time addressing invitations to your summer events by using personalized address labels with beach balls, beachy scenes, or BBQs.
  • Looking for something small for new parents? Customize a set to announce their new baby with his/her name, birth date, and weight. Better yet, you can even create labels for baby foods or toys.
  • With your new grads getting ready to head off to college, design tags to label and number boxes or “Property of” labels so nothing will get lost during the big move.
  • If you’re planning a vacation, thank your neighbors for checking on your house by giving them some home-made treats. You can easily create a gift tag or food label for your present.

Click to see the address labels/gift tag designs at Vistaprint!

Vistaprint Return Address Labels

Just remember that at the end of the process they try to up-sell you on a lot of stuff, so be aware of that as you go through the checkout process.

*And I would highly recommend using your “deals only” email address when you register because they like to send you lots (and lots and lots) of emails.*

More great Gift Ideas & Savings!
