Holiday Gift Guide When Shopping At Walmart!

Dynamic duo Bethany Halford and Amanda Jerkins, smart shoppers and the brains behind Whoa, Wait. Walmart?, use their diverse backgrounds in fashion and interiors to hunt down surprisingly cool items from the aisles of the retailer. Each time the gals pop into a Walmart, they become your personal shoppers, and share their high-end looks on a low-end budget with over 334,000 of their very best (virtual) friends.


To help you shop smarter, not harder this holiday season, they created a list (and checked it twice) of some of their top items to add to your shopping cart. Please advise if you would like an interview on being budget-friendly this holiday season or would like to repurpose their recommendations (samples not available).


Gift Guide for Moms:

Calming Gift Set: Help Mom unwind after a long day with lavender essential oil and a beautiful rattan diffuser. Bonus: It doubles as decor, too! Lavender is known for its calming properties, so we love diffusing the oil or adding it to bathwater. 


Skincare Gift: Gua Sha and jade rollers are great ways to massage your face and neck. Both of these tools feel amazing, so Mom can relax while helping her skin out. Here’s a tutorial!


Cozy Gift: A good pair of house shoes is a staple for all moms. But, sometimes we forget to replace the worn-out pair we already have. These are SO soft and will keep her feet warm and cozy all winter long. 


Sweet Memories Gift: Framing some of the kids’ artwork or a few pictures she has in her favorites folder on her phone will show Mom just how much you care. She’ll be thrilled to hang the sweet memories on the wall, but more so that she didn’t have to do the legwork herself. 


Accessories Gift: Giving jewelry can be tricky. We suggest getting Mom some pieces like these from the Scoop line. They’re gold-plated, so they’ll hold up better than typical costume jewelry, but they aren’t pricey like fine jewelry (that she’d want to pick out on her own). 


Gift Guide for Kids: 


Dude Perfect 101 Tricks, Tips, and Cool Stuff: Dude Perfect videos are so fun to watch as a family, and this book is the perfect addition to your kid’s library. There are tons of fun tricks and tips, plus motivational content as well. 


Walkie Talkies: This toy is a necessity for kids who love creative play. We love that this set also comes with binoculars. Let the adventure begin! 



Interactive Pet: If your daughter is an animal lover and nurturer, she’s sure to be a great mom to this sweet interactive pig by Little Live Pets. 


Playset: Bluey is a big hit with girls so we know that Bluey’s house will score at your house, too. This playset is the perfect backdrop for hours of pretend play with your daughter’s favorite pup. 



SEQUENCE for Kids: A classic game that everyone should have in their toy closet. It’s one of our favorites because all of our kids can play, even the youngest who can’t read just yet. 


Book Series: Bad Kitty is so clever and fun that our kids can’t put these books down. They actually read and re-read them which we absolutely love! 


Craft Kit: This craft kit has it all! Give it as a gift and you are giving endless possibilities to create. 


CD Player: That’s right, a CD player! Why? Because you have a huge CD collection just waiting to be discovered by your kids. This is a great gift for older kids and gives them some freedom to choose their own music. 


Lightboxes: Our kids love their lightboxes! It’s great for all ages and is a fun item to add to your drawing supplies. 


Rock Kit: Raise your hand if your kids collect rocks? This is a super fun rock tumbler kit that will continue their love of rocks into adulthood.

DIY Table Revamp - Guest Post

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!


While shifting to your dream house, you may face a mountain of pre-move work, including downsizing, packing, hiring moving trucks, and other help. When you already have a list full of tasks, home improvements for the new house might be the last thing. However, handling the new house renovation before moving in is convenient for you in many ways. Planning home improvement is exciting and stressful both. If you are moving to a house that is not entirely ready, you have massive things to do. To make things smooth, create a list based on priorities. If you are shifting to a freshly build house, you do not need to make a lot of renovation, though you can add a little personal touch to it. When you make house changes before moving in, you can save your floor and furniture from paint spills. You will have an open space to plan the house interior. You can protect yourself and your family from hazardous odors and dust. There are several home improvements like removing popcorn ceil
