3 Sites for Christmas Shopping

Christmas is just around the corner and the shopping frenzy has begun. I try not to go do a lot of spending for Christmas, and if I do, I try to get gifts that are unique and meaningful. Here are some sites that I shop around for ideas!

Modcloth

One of my favourite online stores! I’ve bought a number of outfits from them and I find their site easy to use. Since it’s only online, the next thing that I look for is returns and customer service. If you purchase an article and something is wrong with it, they do a really good job of making the return process as painless as possible.

Not only do they have cute clothes, they have adorable extras that can add a unique twist to your gift giving.

Uncommon Goods

I’m not entirely sure how I happened across this site, but I’m so glad I did! There are some unique gift ideas there and even if I’m not buying I love browsing to see what new things they’ve added, I mean, USB cufflinks and a metal band made out of … metal? What’s not to like?

ThinkGeek

Fresh out of college I found this site and I went a little crazy, buying random shirts and gadgets. It’s easy to loose track of time browsing through all the nerdy items for sale on this site and I absolutely love it! There are a lot of pop culture things on it as well so there’s a little something for everyone.

That’s all for now, maybe later this week I’ll do three sites that will make you feel good about helping other people. We’ll see. What are some of your faves?

Things I’m Loving

Lately there have been a few things that I was introduced to that I’ve been loving, so I thought I’d share!

modcloth lace hoodie

First, I was YouTube binging and came across a Lauren Fairweather video where she talked about her Etsy shop branding and a giveaway featuring this lovely hoodie. I hopped on to Mod Cloth right away, found it and ordered it. I absolutely love this hoodie! I wish there was a way I could incorporate it into every outfit. I’m seriously considering getting the grey and berry versions of it as well.

During the YouTube bing I found Carrie Hope Fletcher whose videos are both hilarious and thoughtful. Carrie also plays Eponine on West End’s Les Miserables and in a lot of her videos she says things that I’ve been thinking about/saying for a very long time.

After watching Carrie’s videos I saw one with her and her brother Tom, which lead me to his channel and to this video, which is a cover done by him and his wife of Love Is On The Radio a song from Tom’s band McFly – who is now joining with Busted to form a new superband. Busted sang Year 3000, which was covered by The Jonas Brothers and I believed featured in a cartoon movie.

So, basically I’ve been listening to McFly songs, the above included. I love their style, and am definitely curious to see how the McBusted style plays out.

I absolutely loved reading this book. One of my faves of the year so far. I reviewed it over on my book blog so I won’t go into the details but I’d highly recommend it if you want a strong story about life after war and how it affects family. Also Laurie is a great fiction writer.

Well, that’s it for now, my January faves. 🙂
