And we’re back at it again with another gift guide. I’ve recently moved into my new apartment and I feel like I’ve become more of a homebody since. Don’t get me wrong I still go out with my friends in fact, I went Grits and Biscuits and grabbed a bite a the Turkey Leg Hut this past weekend, but I don’t mind spending a relaxing weekend at home. And I know I’m not the only one! I’ve been seeing more and more folks my age (shout out to the older millennials) curling up on their couches with Netflix and a weighted blanket in the evenings and on weekends. Plus it’s practically cuddling up season anyway so this gift guide is right on time.
Weighted Blanket – One of my friends has one of these and I didn’t want to leave her couch once I was under it. I was instantly calm and had the best nap I’ve had in FOREVER!
Bath & Body Works Candle – This is actually my favorite scent from B&BW and I always make sure to stock up when they go on sale. It smells so good and has my place smelling like the most delicious cologne.
Instapot – It’s no secret that I love mine and use it at least once a week. I even made the turkey breast I cooked for Friendsgiving this year in it. Y’all, I swear this appliance has single-handedly changed the way I cook. I have the Crockpot version and I can’t recommend it enough.
Pullover – I like to keep things chilly in my place so it’s not uncommon for me to be in a pullover in the evenings and on weekends.
Zella Live In Leggings – I live in leggings when I’m at home. Bun life with my pullover, big glasses and leggings are my uniform when I’m at home.
Robe – As Luvvie put it best, everyone needs an auntie robe. This one is similar to the one I currently own, and I’ve been eyeing this navy one and itching to add it to my collection.
Bluetooth speaker – I won this one at a Jack Daniel’s event and I’ve been using it regularly since. It’s small, but packs a punch. The bass is powerful and it’s perfect for dance parties as well as catching up on podcast episodes or even finishing up Michelle Obama’s new book.
Amazon Smart Plug – These were on sale on Black Friday and hopefully they’ll go on sale again today. They’re easy to set up and make it easy to control the devices you own that aren’t currently “smart”. You know what’s even better than lighting a Christmas tree? Doing it from the comfort of your couch under your weighted blanket.
