The winner giveaway is Kimberly Cole! ♥
This year we had a family meeting about gift giving. We first talked about all the wonderful things we did, the experiences we had, the time and travel together. Then we remembered how much effort it was to declutter and organize the house over the summer. After going through all that, it was easily agreed that we would each be happy to have less things this year in order to experience more again in 2016. Our family specifically chose something we want, something we need, and something to read. With our own limitations for each person in the family in mind, we’ve carefully crafted this year’s gift giving guide to be those items we think each person on your list would find worthy of their “want’ list!
That said, we’ve also tried to make shopping as easy as possible; except when shopping small and local, we turn to online shopping for just about everything and the holidays are certainly no exception! Especially with exclusive discounts to our favorite vendors (don’t worry, we are sharing the details below) and free two-day shipping through Amazon, we avoid the crowds at the mega stores and malls, and save our shopping excursions for our local family-owned favorites.
We are sharing our full Christmas shopping list below, including HEALTHY STOCKING STUFFERS, along with all the details on how to keep your holiday budget on track – think lots of practical COUPON SHOPPING!!
We are making your holiday shopping super easy this year through a handy dandy color grid, and easy to find discount details! All of the details you will need to get those discounts are noted in parentheses directly next to each of the discounted items.
And for us, we do most of our shopping on Amazon and One Stop Paleo Shop, so marked all of the items that you can quickly and easily find between those two sites to help you save time on those shopping to-do’s.

Remember Matt’s rules of giveaways!
- Please use a valid email address when entering. I cannot use my dowsing rods to attempt to find which bytes form your contact address!
- Please follow all the rules so I don’t get frustrated by invalid entries. Nothing makes more of a sad panda than picking a winner who I have to disqualify.
- Please respond within 48 hours or I will have to pick a new winner! I have a certain set of skills that make me a nightmare to people who don’t respond: the ability to randomly draw again.
- Please be a US resident. My mana is too low to cast a Teleportation Spell!
We hope you are able to find the perfect item for the people you care and utilize these discounts to save some money while doing so this holiday season. After all, spending less time on shopping, and more time relaxing with loved ones is what this season is all about!
From our family to yours, wishing you all a very happy holiday season!!
