It’s no secret that I detest Black Friday. And I didn’t do any shopping on Cyber Monday…but. I still managed to secure a really, really awesome deal this week.
Want my Christmas shopping secret?
If you’re not a fan of malls (I get sick every.single.time I go!) and you’ve already got that sense of impending doom as your gift list grows and your bank account balance shrinks (I know I’m not the only one!), I’ve got really good news for you.
One of my favorite online companies loves to put together what they call “bundles” which is their way of saying “a crazy amount of value in one really affordable package.”
For this week only, they’ve created a special bundle just in time for the holidays! It’s called A Very Merry Gift Certificate Bundle and here’s how it works…
For an investment of just $15 you get $180 in store credits from 12 online businesses that align with your simple, natural lifestyle.
You know those coupon books that schools and sports teams sell when they’re doing a fundraiser? It’s sort of like that, except that these aren’t coupons-they’re better!
You literally get $15 gift certificates to put towards whatever you like from a dozen participating stores. All you’ll pay are standard shipping rates (which varies by store). Worried you won’t use the gift certificates? I was too.
That’s why I am being totally transparent and sharing how I spent mine on Christmas gifts for my whole family (mom stop reading now, please).
I purchased the Mini Canvas Wrap Set for my parents, my in-laws, and my Mother-in-Law will each get a canvas 5×7 print of the boys. I spent an additional $29.99 plus $9.75 on shipping. This is a HUGE win. I was looking at $30 for frames alone-not to mention getting the pictures printed. Now I just have to wrap them up.
One of the gift certificates is for ethically-sourced coffee, and my brother’s a bit of a coffee snob, so he got a some Indonesian Sumatra (which makes me totally jealous). I paid an additional .95 cents plus $3.95 for shipping on top of my gift certificate.
Ish and I love Kombucha, and I actually just printed out the gift certificate to The Kombucha Shop and stuck it in his stocking. He’ll go nuts, and I don’t have to guess which bottles he wants.
The boys love their bamboo utensils so I purchased bamboo sporks for both of them as well as mugs for each of them from LifeWithout Plastic. I spent $4.95 on shipping.
For The Girls
I got my mom Bloom Naturals’ WASH, a clarifying honey wash for her face. Mostly because I’ve been eyeing it and I’m at her house for Christmas so I’ll get to sneak in a few tries before I head home. I’ve also heard awesome things about it. I paid an additional $9.00 plus $5.99 for shipping.
Since they are hosting us for two weeks (and watching the boys while we have a little alone time), I also grabbed the Holiday Hostess Box for her. I paid an additional $4.99 plus $5.99 shipping.
I got my Mother-in-Law a gorgeous Scripture print. I paid an additional $13.00 plus $12.00 shipping. Shipping on this was a bit steep, but I know that she’ll be over the moon, as it’s one of her favorite quotes.
I got my step-Mother-in-Law a glass straw that supports the New Zealand coastline. She’s going to love it. I spent nothing extra, and only $5.52 for shipping.
I’m not going to lie. I stuffed my own stocking this year with a USB diffuser that I’ve had my eye on for awhile. If you have someone who loves essential oils, they would love this gift. Just sayin’. I paid an additional $4.99 plus $3.40 for shipping.
As long as you use just one gift certificate, you’ll come out even. Use two and you’ll have secured an amazing deal-worth twice what you paid!
The more of the gift certificates you use, the more you save, all the way up to $165 FREE dollars, so you can spend less while gifting richly this Christmas.
The only catch? This bundle is available for just 7 days, so you need to grab yours quick (and then, get shopping)!
The last day to get yours is Monday, December 5th.
This year’s Very Merry Gift Certificate Bundle comes with $180 worth of gift certificates including:
