Happy Friday! It’s time to share our Friday Favorites. New things we find, fashions, and everything we are loving right now. This week we are planning ahead for the holidays by making wish lists to shop for early Christmas deals! Plus, sharing how you can get a jump on the holiday season!
You know, holiday shopping starts a little earlier this year! We hope this helps you find ideas for you, the family, and to help you get ready to be counting down to Christmas. If you are looking for more ideas, see our lists of gift ideas.
It might seem a little early and yes, I am still sharing seasonal ideas for fall but, I thought I’d slip in some ideas for the holidays. Especially since we might have to plan things for Christmas earlier than normal. Who knows what the holidays will look like this year?
For me, I don’t want to be caught off guard with having to ship things here and there. I want to be ready to ship gifts to my family and get gifts there on time. Plus, if all goes well Sammie will come home for two weeks at Christmas.

Ideas For The Holidays – Christmas Preview Jane
Festive, fun and useful gift ideas
- Holiday T-Shirts – Are fun to wear during the holiday season and fun to give as gifts. We love getting t-shirts like this, t-shirts with sayings like jingle, holly jolly, Merry Christmas, and fa, la la… We love wearing them right after Thanksgiving. Just to add to our festive feelings for the holiday season.
- When you are ready to decorate for the holidays or know someone who loves whimsical gnomes. These Christmas gnomes are so cute! Add them to a mantle, bookshelf, or give them as a gift to a gnome lover.
- Simple ways to decorate for Christmas are hanging Christmas stockings. We are ready to get new ones. Do you need a new Christmas stocking too?
- When Sammie comes home from college she will love a gift for the holidays like this spa gift box. Perfect for moms, grandmas, sisters, aunts, or even a secret Santa gift. Who would you give it to?
- I love these Turkish hand towels and Turkish kitchen towels. I think you might see a few of these in my food photography. They would make a great gift that is useful. Or use one to wrap a bottle of wine in and tie it with a ribbon. The receiver will have two gifts in one. Wine to drink, and a towel for use.
- Duck, duck, Duck Boots! Yes, perfect for rainy weather and walking by the river or lake. I love the fall colors and leopard designs on these boots.
- Stocking stuffers are always fun to get and hide in a Christmas Stocking. These gnome magnets in sets with pairs of 2 with so many sayings to pick from.
- Funny Christmas T-Shirts! Yes, let’s add a bit of humor to this year! My favorite is the OMG Santa I know him.
- Before you know it it’s time to hang a Christmas Countdown Calendar. Get yours so you’ll be ready to hang it up for the holidays.
