My Favorite Amazon Purchases from 2022

The fact that 2023 is a few weeks away is terrifying. What’s also terrifying is the amount of money that I’ve spent on Amazon throughout the year. The convenience that Amazon brings is really next to none, and even though I started leaning into it more this year with my busy schedule, I think I made out better in the long run. I was able to save money on gas, time on commuting, and quite frankly paid less for things because of the amazing deals you can find on Amazon.

Reviewing all of the awesome purchases I’ve made – here are my 5 favorite Amazon purchases from 2022!


24in Curved PC Monitor

This bad-boy upgraded my work desk and totally increased my productivity. I was a laptop advocate and multi-screen hater for a while, but purchasing this for right around $100 is by far one of my favorite purchases this year. It’s part of the reason why I’ve picked back up writing on the blog as much as I have been! Between work and my creative outlet, this monitor has already paid itself off.

The Best Pop Up Beach Tent Ever

I really jumped into Beach Volleyball this year and had to step up my beach set-up for the early morning tournaments under the crazy sun. Do I give credit to the shade this tent gave me and my partner for winning our first doubles tournament? Yes. It’s so light and easy to set up and clean up, it comes in a small bag. It also is pretty sturdy and you can adjust the set up so easily to move with the sun so you always have shade. 100% a must purchase. The amount of people that ask me about this tent every time I set it up is astronomical.

Magnetic Screen Door

My second floor apartment has the best deck ever, views of the bay and all that Long Beach has to offer. Only problem was it didn’t have a sliding door, just a regulation door. I got this magnetic screen door and it was an instant game changer. Not only could I leave my door open without any bugs coming inside, but I was able to enjoy the breeze and sun while working indoors.

Lululemon Align Legging Dupes

I’ve been a colorful koala advocate since day 1. These leggings are top notch and a great price. They are great for everyday wear and also for intense workouts. I’ve sworn by them for years now and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Colorful Koala leggings 100% a top purchase in 2022.

Peel & Stick Wallpaper

My house was all boring and painted white when I moved it, it lacked character and brightness and excitement. This peel & stick wallpaper totally upgraded my living room. It was really easy to apply, even though it probably would have been easier if I waited for someone to come help me do it. But regardless it looks amazing and everyday when I walk into my living room I get to see this beautiful amazing wall. Mood Booster – 10000% a top purchase in 2022.

20 White Elephant Gifts Under $20 That People Actually Want and Will Use

White Elephant gift exchanges are so much fun – they provide laughs, some competition, and some great times. Sometimes it can be hard to pick the perfect white elephant gift in your price range. Should I go a serious route? Do I go for a gag gift? Should I get the top gift that everyone steals? There’s so many different places to take your white elephant gift buying.

Personally, I try to always pick a gift that someone will use. It might not be the number 1 gift of the night but whoever gets the gift will be pumped about it. I tend to go this route because…

1. I can’t be the person that buys a gag gift

I couldn’t knowingly buy a crap gift knowing that one of my friends would get it after they put so much thought into their own gift. I would feel like a total loser, especially if I ended the gift exchange with a solid gift.

2. I’m not wasting money on something that will get thrown out

Regardless of if you keep your gift or not, you are spending money on it. Would you want to throw your gift away if you got it? Then whoever gets it will probably throw it away too. Poof there goes your money!

3. There’s nothing better than a surprise good gift from a White Elephant

Imagine opening a gift and totally not expecting it, then realizing wow I’m going to use this all the time. Nothing is better than opening an awesome gift that you didn’t anticipate having. Now you can be the person that supplies that surprise to your friends and family.

So with all that being said, here are 20 White Elephant Gifts for under $20 that people will like and actually use :

6 Christmas Gifts That Don’t Cost Anything

2022 has been a very interesting year – As a country, we’ve been battling inflation, a possible housing bubble, and gas prices soaring through the roof. As the holidays, more specifically gifting, can be a very financially heavy burden for most on a normal year, this year is even more so of a reach for many people and families. With prices rising for every day goods, major layoffs at major companies taking place, and cost of living continuing to rise with the stock market falls, it’s not the ideal time to be spending money of gifts and items that may not get used or loved as you would want them to.

With this year being different and an emphasis of cost effectiveness, I thought it would be helpful to put together a list of some Christmas or Holiday gifts that don’t cost anything (or anything additional to your typical day to day costs 🙂 ). If you’re looking for a way to celebrate the season and show your loved ones you care about them without breaking the bank, here are some ways to share Christmas cheer without spending a single dime.


Host a White Elephant Gift Exchange with Only Items You Currently Own

We all have a backlog of things and stuff hanging around our houses – in the basement, attic, stuffed in closets, you name it! Why not find something you no longer use that maybe someone else will love. You can set an estimated value minimum and maximum so people aren’t gifting an oven mitt and then a flat screen TV… Get all your friends together and do a gift exchange with the items! You never know what may be valuable to someone else. If you want to take it to the next step, make the event a potluck and have each guest bring a dish for the meal or appetizer.

Go on a Hiking Trip with Friends

No gift can beat quality time with friends. Instead of buying gifts, have your friend group take PTO (so you get paid) or align on a mutual day off from work and meet up for a hike at a local park! If you’re feeling adventurous you can even travel to a further destination, which may cost more in gas, but could make the day more of an event than just going down the street. Enjoy the beautiful scenery around you while taking in the great conversations and laughs with friends. Experiences for gifts and giving time as a gift are too very overlooked items!

Make a Photo Collage

I don’t know about you but I have an overwhelming amount of old pictures from high school and college hanging around my house. Remember back in the days when you got doubles and duplicates of all pictures, well I still have all of them and I’m sure you have quite a bunch too. Going through the old images and piecing together a collage or story board with the images is a great gift to give to long time friends. If you’re looking to spend a little bit you can always run to TJ Maxx and pick up a frame to store the images in. It’s always great to revisit memories around the holidays.

Gift a Plant

The pandemic produces more plant moms than ever before. I know I steered clear of the plant trend, but my mother 100% fell victim. This one is for her – She split up all her plants and gifted them to teachers at her school. Not a bad idea for a Christmas gift right? If you have an overwhelming number of plants and need to share the love, Christmas is a great time to share the gifts of plants with a friend.

Agree to No Gift

There’s nothing wrong with skipping a year of holiday gifts with friends or family. If you are saving for something or tight on cash, don’t be afraid to skip presents. You can even suggest doing a Christmas in July which can allow for more time to get yourself in good financial standing to allow for gifts!

Hand Written Note

Sentimental gifts can be the most expensive of them all. Taking the time to write a hand written note is a great way to share a heartfelt gift with a loved one during the holiday season. You can write notes to your most cherished family and friends as a way to recall amazing memories with them and discuss the plans you have for the future with them. Explaining why they are such a valuable part of your life is another angle you can take in the hand written note.

You can make the note as short or as long as you like. I personally love saving hand written notes to have them to look back on in the future. Even adding a handwritten note to any gift is a nice personal touch!

There are always ways to have a cost conscious holiday gifting season. I hope these few ideas can help!
