I know, I know – it is only September! But hear me out, the holidays will be here before we know it. Additionally, I think we could all use a head start on holiday shopping. It’s better than scrambling to get everything at once and finding that the “hot item” of the season is sold out!

I’ve done this post in the past and it has always been a big hit. So I hope you enjoy this year’s finds. Who says advent calendars are just for the kids? Don’t forget to shop sooner rather than later – these will sell fast!
