Cyber Monday – Gift Ideas!

Happy Monday! I’m kicking the week off with my Cyber Monday picks and lots of fun gift ideas for everyone on your list! How is your holiday shopping going? I’m about half way done and hoping to make a little more progress today. I had big plans of finishing my on-line shopping over Thanksgiving weekend but I ended up spending time with family and wasn’t on my computer much. I don’t regret that decision at all :) but I’m happy the sales are still going strong today!

Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

If you follow me on IG stories at all you’ve probably heard me rave about certain Vanity Planet products. Items like this face steamer are staples at our home! Addison and I both use it every week. We steam in front of the TV on our “spa nights.” Kenny is always laughing and rolling his eyes at us. Ha. We are firm believers in self care. ;) I reached out to VP to see if I could get some discounts for you all on my favorite items because they all make great gifts!

Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

Head here to get a discount on all of my Vanity Planet favorites! They have bundle options available too that are perfect if you want to get a few different items or a few of the same item for gifts.  Perfect for girls/women of all ages!

These Kove speakers are also included in my VP round up and are my latest obsession! They connect to your phone/computer via bluetooth and have great sound quality.

You can keep them connected or separate them for full surround sound. I’ve been surprised how much I’ve used these in the past month! I turn them on when I clean, exercise, when we’re spending time outside. They are also perfect for teens in their bedroom, entertaining, lounging by the pool in the summer. Such a fun gift for anyone on your list!

I took them to Utah and we loved having them on when everyone was playing basketball and hanging outside. My parents put this fun new sports court in their backyard for the kids/grandkids. So much fun!

Kenny and Shawn crack me up in this pic. None of us are basketball players but we like to pretend. Ha. :)

Colleen Rothschild products are all 30% off! I shared favorites in this post. You can also check out their best seller page. Great skin care products that would also be fun for gifts. I’ll be stocking up on the Extreme Recovery Cream! Love that stuff.

Travel bags/Amazon Prime (Sunny Side Up)

Last Spring I shared my favorites for travel and I thought I would share them again because they also make fun gifts.  This double layer make-up travel bag is my favorite!   It holds EVERYTHING.  I love that I can lay larger products in the middle and keep smaller bottles upright on the side.

There is also another zipper compartment on top for make-up brushes and other items. I love the transparent cover to keep make-up brushes clean too. Plus it has a strap and is easy to carry. WINNER!  This bag is still sitting in my bathroom with everything in it because I haven’t unpacked from our Utah trip yet. Which isn’t good because I’ve found that if I don’t unpack from a trip immediately after we get home I’m living out of my suitcase for at least another week. Ha. Anyone else!?

Travel bags/Amazon Prime (Sunny Side Up)

This electronic organizer is another favorite!  Perfect to hold all of your charging cords, camera items, pens, a mouse, your phone.. whatever you need. Would make a great gift!

Travel bags/Amazon Prime (Sunny Side Up)

If you prefer a good hanging bag this toiletry bag on the left is a great option.  It also holds a lot and has elastics that help keep products upright.  I also really like this travel make-up organizer.  Similar to my favorite bag with a separate spot for brushes on top.  It also has dividers that you can move and customize.

Everything open..

We have and love the ice maker – a Chirsmtas gift from my parents! It’s on sale for such a good price right now. The other items would all make great gifts too.

To those of you who achieve that before December even hits.. you are my heroes! I’ll be happy if I’m done by Dec. 20th.

I like to set expectations low.. makes it easier to feel proud of myself.



xoxo, Erin

  1. Wow, that is quite the round up of ideas, Erin! This post must have taken forever to link up. Thank you so much for the time and effort it takes to pull a post like this together. Looks like the family enjoyed the new addition to the backyard at your parents house. They know how to be sure the family keeps coming back. Smart folks. :) What fun for everyone. I’d be up for a good came of Horse! ;) Happy new week and new month! You are on the ball and sure to finish up your shopping soon.

    1. Thank you Jeanne! I know.. my parent have a theory that “if they build it kids will come..” ha! It works! ;) I hope you’ve had a good week! XO

  2. You Are A Lifesaver, Erin! Your recommendation of the Mario Bedescu glow facial spray concluded this weary Cyber shopper’s gift search. Thank You and Merry Christmas!

  3. So many great ideas! Can you tell I’m behind in my emails?! The VP mirror I wanted is now sold out…no surprise, but I’m still thinking the face brush is a great deal and might be a must-have!
