QVC and their easy pays get me in so much trouble!  LOL     :)

 

I also love VB cosmetic travel bags.  They are expensive to me but well worth the money.  Mine have been put through the ringer and have help up quite well.  That would be a nice little compliment to the weekender bag for your daughter if you decide to get the bag for her.  VB site usually has fairly good sales and some even with free shipping with no minimum purchase throughout the year but especially during the holiday season.  

 

I get into trouble with QVC every year around this time...I think I will look into trying to get her a complete matching VB travel set...

QVC is an addiction for me. It is so easy to justify the cost once it is broken up. I do all of my co-workers/reports and my DW team ornaments from there every year. Always on easy pay and some of my most expensive things I may get from there especially in a time crunch and they do the guarantee by Christmas. They was a life saver last year and it even delivered on a Sunday. Love Love Love QVC

Absolutely agree with all of this, lol...I have been ordering Christmas gifts from QVC since my kids were younger...have no plans to order anything this year, but I'm sure I will see a TSV or something I just "need"...

I’m struggling with gift ideas as well...my oldest son will be 18 next month so he works and has his own money and buys everything he wants with money saved. He just bought a gaming pc and I heard him mention a graphics card BUT I have no idea what that is lol so maybe that’s an option or those Apple Ear pods. Lately I’m just listening to things they talk about with video games and making mental notes.

I understand. I am trying whatever I can as well. I love the forums because it is always something I forget about or that will just hit me and I can go get that item or start thinking on a different train of thought for a gift. Boy I miss the simple times when Baby Alive dolls was all I needed and they would be thrilled. The simple times

If he's just bought a gaming PC and he's still looking at a dedicated graphics card, he's likely going to be very particular about which one he gets. These are rarely cheap buys (cheapest one on Newegg right now, for example, is almost $200), so unless you hear him get into specifics, I would recommend going in a different direction gift-wise.

Unless you know what he want's it's hard to say on the video card. You would need to know what company's chipset he wants nVidia or AMD, then what series of card he wants. You can have a price range from a couple hundred dollars for a decent GPU to in excess of a thousand for a high end.

I wonder if my mom would like some new ones as well. She got a new house last year and I am not sure if she upgraded or not

Just got a wonderful idea for a gift. A throw, Hot chocolate and candy. If I add a gift card and fuzzy socks the young girls would love this. They called is a WELLNESS Gift, I believe.

This is a great gift idea, especially when you catch the throws on sale, if you have several people to gift...I may keep this one in mind for some of the ladies at my church (depending on budget)...

Yes, It is a duplicate type gift that everyone would love.

I want the entire Poldark book series. Not that my fam will ever get it for me. I bet they wouldn’t even know where to look ..... I would even take a gift card so that I could do it myself..... and I despise gift cards. Lol

Never thought about a book series, you could even set it up to have 1 delivered every month.... Interesting

Ooh, A book of the month club!!!! Do they still sell Highlights for kids, maybe a subscription for school age children would be a good idea ( I use to like to read these myself when my kids were younger)...

This is going to sound cliche, and not really going to be helpful to you, but I just want to be thought of.  My favorite gift last year was one I didn't get. My daughter in law took the time to go online and look up weighted blankets. I would love to have one, and she knows it, and she did some research. Now, it turned out she couldn't find one she could afford. But the fact that she put thought into it made me cry. I honestly don't even remember what I ended up getting from them, but I'll always remember that she thought of me.  I raised (and spoiled) 2 boys, and I just never get that out of any of them.

 

I looked into them once for my special needs boy who doesn't sleep at night (which causes me to lose sleep).  When I looked, I looked on ebay...depending on the weight you want it to be they seem to range from $50 to $200.

Bought one for my DD16 for her birthday from Costco. Under $100 for one that sells for much more on Amazon. She loves it

If you know anyone who sews, weighted blankets are fairly inexpensive to make. You just need to buy fleece (on sale of course), weighted poly-fil and regular poly-fil if you want to make it poofy. My mom made one for my son. She just triple-stitched the rows and columns and then we used a food scale to weigh out the amount of poly-fil and put in a handful of fluff and stitch it up again. It's time consuming, but not super expensive. Her regular sewing machine was able to handle it all - we didn't need special equipment. It really helped my older son settle at night. My younger son hates blankets, so it's not working for him as well. :-)
