The holiday season is here & the chaos has begun! Towards the end of October I usually create a Note on my phone & make a list of all the people on my Christmas list. I include EVERYone I plan to buy gifts for… Beckam’s teachers, the White Elephant party we go to, etc. I then try to brainstorm what I would like to buy for each person + the ideal budget point & make a note of it. This helps me not get too far off track or sucked into sales along the way! Then, once I have ordered AND received the item, I BOLD that person’s name in my phone so I know they’re checked off my list!
This year I was a little more aggressive in my Christmas list shopping because I am trying to get things wrapped up before December! [end of pregnancy around Christmas time is NOT something I would recommend 😉 ha!] So I have been looking for ways to streamline the process & make my shopping quick & easy but also effective! ENTER: Walmart Gift Finder. Basically, an answer to prayers. ha!
What is the GIFT FINDER?
The Gift Finder tool has been so helpful in narrowing down shopping options, especially for those people on my Christmas list that I wasn’t 100% sure what I wanted to get. You can customize your search by gender, age, price point & even category. SO helpful! I even took it a step further & selected the ‘Pick Up Today‘ so that I could do free curbside pickup! [31+ weeks pregnant + 2 kids… not ideal for walking around & shopping lol] They also offer free 2 day shipping which was great for any items not available at my store! & Most people don’t realize that Walmart online offers the BEST brands [Sam Edelman, Levi’s & more], the hottest items of the season and even the unique & unexpected gifts.
I wanted to share this unique Walmart Gift Finder option because it has truly made Christmas shopping easier! Time, budget & effort are at a low right now so this has helped me maximize what I can get for our loved ones!
Gift Guides are always highly requested this time of year! So to share with y’all how amazing the Gift Finder is, I utilized it to put together popular Gift Ideas in these categories: for Her, for Him & for Kids! In each collage I’m including SAVE, SPEND & SPLURGE options! Essentially, the lowest priced items are at the top, working down to the more expensive items at the bottom. Hopefully this gives you great shopping ideas for anyone on your list whether it’s for your kids/husband or some of the others on your list that you might have a smaller budget for.
SHOP the items in each collage below the picture! Just scroll through the images! Happy shopping, friends! xo
SHOP Gift Ideas for HER:
So many great gift ideas for any lady on your list! This Revlon hair dryer brush is one of my favorite items I own. Walmart also has tons of great perfumes from high end brands like Burberry & Marc Jacobs. & Y’all know I am obsessed with my Dyson & believe every house needs one 😉
SHOP Gift Ideas for HIM:
Guys are always the HARDEST to buy for in my opinion! So I spent a lot of time narrowing down the best gift ideas for the men in your life! These Tile trackers are a life saver. They have come in handy in our house on more than a dozen occasions. [just this week 😉 ha!] This high performance cooler has great reviews & is an affordable alternative to the Yeti! & One of the popular gift items for 2020 is a drone. This one has amazing reviews & would be fun for the whole family!
SHOP Gift Ideas for KIDS:
I don’t know about you, but I always have the most fun shopping for all the kids on my list. Maybe it’s because they always have the best reactions & have so much excitement opening Christmas gifts! I know Nerf guns are always a hit & Walmart has lots of options! Or this kids tablet[available in several colors] is on sale for $65 & will thrill any kid! Or, if you’re looking to spend a little more, this 2 seater racer is sure to be the hit of the year! I know Beckam is obsessed with his!
Hopefully these gift guides + Walmart Gift Finder tool will make your Christmas shopping a little easier!
