Gift Guide for Men {Todd’s Picks}

So, it’s the most wonderful time of the year again?!  The older we get the faster they seem to come! With Christmas comes the anxiety of gift buying, and if you haven’t noticed yet this isn’t Lauren your usual thrifty blonde writing this. I am her husband Todd. So, my attempt is to get us guys out there something other than more underwear and socks. Now, I know our stuff can get rough looking, so by all means if the man in your life needs socks and underwear don’t deprive him of those necessities! If though, you would like to get him something besides this I am here to help.

Now, I can’t  promise that this is the ultimate gift guide out there, I can promise mediocrity at it’s finest! I’m only kidding. Let’s dive right in to some of the things I like and some things that I wouldn’t mind having.

Christmas Gift Guide for the Woman Who Has Everything

everything gift guideIt’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…gifts! I had a request to find gift ideas for mothers, sisters, etc that already seem to have everything! That’s such an awesome idea that I decided to make an entire blog post and gift guide dedicated to just that! The best part about this guide is that all of the items are from Amazon, ship Prime, have great reviews and are under $40! I just want to say really quick, that all of my links are affiliate links and when you shop through them, I make a tiny commission (at NO COST to you) so thank you all so much for supporting what I love doing! Each photo is numbered, so the description and link will be next to the corresponding number!

  1. Weekender Bag  $39.99! Fits 2-4 days worth of essentials and is approved for carry on travel! Also comes with a toiletry bag.
  2. Massage Pillow  $39.95! I want one of these! Massages neck, feet, abdomen, calves. FDA approved.
  3. Jessica Simpson Slippers  $23.88! Over 1,000 reviews and Amazon’s Choice, I would say these are a must have! Several color options as well.
  4. LED Makeup Mirror  $19.99! Comes with a magnification spot as well! Would be perfect for travel or daily makeup.
  5. Keyring Bracelet  $10.99! I don’t know how I ever managed without my O-ring key chain! This would make a great stocking stuffer or additional gift.
  6. Capri Blue Volcano Candle  $26.98!  It’s true what you hear, these are the best smelling candles in all the land! With over 1,400 reviews I would say so! They are worth the money, I promise.
  7. The Happy Planner  $34.99! I love my Happy Planner and I think people love getting planners to be ready to start the new year.
  8. Girl, Stop Apologizing  $8.74! I loved Girl, Wash your Face so much, I think this would be a great gift for any woman you are buying for! You can get Girl, Wash Your Face HERE.
  9. Roku Premier  $29.00! I added this to the women’s gift guide because us ladies love our Netflix and binge watching…or I do at least! We have had a Roku for YEARS and we use it for all of our streaming and it’s compatible with Alexa. It also has over 3,600 reviews and 4.5 stars!
  10. Philosophy Perfume Set  $35.00! I love this fragrance! Such a subtle and clean smell and great price for all 3 scents.





This one if for all the mamas out there…especially the ones who would rather hear nails on a chalkboard than go shopping with their kids! HAHA! I’m only kidding…sort of. Seriously though, I’m not a huge fan of “subscription boxes” or ones that I have to commit to. Another thing I’m not a fan of, is spending a lot of money on clothes, especially for my son, because he grows out of stuff so quickly! If this is you, then keep reading. I even have a code for a little $$ you can save!

I recently discovered Kids on 45th which is a company that sells new and pre-owed kids clothes for cheap! Sizes range from newborn to 14/16 and it’s delivered to your door.


  • Go to https://kidson45th.com/thriftyblonde and create an account by giving your kid’s size and style in about 2 minutes.
  • Tell them your kid’s style and build your own box or let the stylist build you a “suprise box.” Like I said, no subscription needed, but available.
  • The stylist will shop especially for your kiddo with no styling fees…EVER!
  • If you aren’t happy with an item, it’s just two taps on your phone, and you will be credited for it.
  • Your box will be delivered right to your door!

My box includes 2 sweatshirts for $15.98, 2 long sleeve shirts for $5.98, 1 Fall jacket for $14.99, 1 pair of jeans for $5.99, 1 pair of athletic pants for $9.99, and another pair for $4.99 with a grand total of $57.92! That’s a lot of clothes for very little money.
