2021, what a year! I don’t know about you but for me it has been another unique year. 🙂 So this year I wanted to think outside the box for my holiday gift guide.

Sometimes you want to be a little unconventional. Maybe you want to buy the people in your life something unique this year. After the last couple of years, unconventional is definitely the way to go! It’s time for something new, unique, and something he/she/they will actually use this year. Here are some of my favorite things that make unique gift ideas. Your friends and family will love and actually use these!

The Black + Decker Corded Vacuum + Steam Mop (Model #BDXSMV190G).

This fabulous tool is a 2-in-1 for quickly cleaning everyday messes on multiple surfaces. This powerful steam mop plus vacuum will keep your home sparkling killing up to 99% of germs without chemicals while removing tough dirt and grime with just water and the included microfiber pad. It has a powerful 1,000-Watt steam boiler and 500-Watt vacuum that can be operated simultaneously, continuously and reliably with plug in power.  Controls easily switch functions so you can vacuum and steam at same time or separately. It may sound like an odd gift idea, but trust me— it is the one thing we all need but didn’t know it! Read the full review here.

Pioneer Woman NEW Easy Cookbook

I am so excited to try the recipes from Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman’s NEW cookbook!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Y’all! I cannot stress enough how much I love easy. If it sounds hard or has ingredients I can’t pronounce or get at the local store I am not doing it! I am not the mom / wife that stands in the kitchen for hours preparing a meal. I just can’t! I’m sure most of y’all would agree! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But when The Pioneer Woman says easy she means it! This book has step by step photos too!! I just looked at one that had a step and pic for “add purée” then “add stock”! Yes!!!

It just came out this year and is available at Walmart and Amazon.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

ThulaTula Home

The @thulatulahome Heirloom Basotho Wool Blanket was crafted in South Africa from naturally renewable African virgin wool. With It’s unique blend of Merino Wool, microfiber, and century old traditional weave construction it offers an ultra-soft, toasty warm touch and feel.

Why I love this brand: Thula Tula is a small, family run business. The owners were born and raised in South Africa and are now devoted to making a difference by providing well-paid, meaningful jobs & empowering underserved communities, especially women & kids in Southern Africa. Each blanket is designed by African artists and is sustainably and ethically made in South Africa.
Plus for every 1 blanket sold you can provide 30 Kids with clean water

Fun fact: Famous people that own a Basotho blanket include Prince Harry, Nelson Mandela, & Pope John Paul II! ThulaTula is the only place in the U.S to be given the blessing of the Basotho Nation to sell their heritage Basotho blanket.
