Penny's Favorite Things: A Holiday Shopping List


It's tough finding gifts that are fun, unique, functional and won't break the bank. Between October and December we have two adoption days to celebrate, plus two birthdays and Christmas. Ack!

Let's just say that I am always looking for cute gifts. Here are some that are affordable, a few that are super special and a bit more expensive. And of course, lots of Etsy finds since I'm an Esty Shopping Ho! The best thing about Etsy...you never need to leave your house, and the Etsy folks are fabulous.

Time to go shopping with Penelope.....HERE WE GO!!!!!


Penny's Favorite Things

1. Great stocking stuffers...soaps and lip balms from BE GREATFUL

My favorite soaps are the glycerin ones, like SUNKISSED...($5)



...and SEA GLASS...



...and Lemon Drop lip balm...($3)


The gifts are great for men and women!



2. A weenie dog change purse ($12.50) from Persnicketypelican...




3. Inspirational prints ($20) from Dazeychic...




4. Gorgeous candle holders ($40) from Wapa...





5. Need something for your pet? How about an adorable custom dog tag ($8.50) by CaliforniaMutts...

7. Need something sweet for a kid? How about this chunky Teddy Bear ($25) from 3Crows...



8. Have a teen who likes skateboarding (uh huh)? How about this fun artwork ($55) from NativeVermont...




9. Looking for something for the hubster? Check out this amazing messenger bag ($388) from peace4youBAGS...



10. Finally, something for yourself after all that shopping?

How about a gorgeous necklace with multi-colored gems! Yee haw!

Best of luck with holiday shopping!

Another great list! The candle holders are so pretty. I'm now addicted to my begreatful lip balm so I will definitely try her soap. I may have to ask her if I can get a matching set of lip balm and soap in the Monkey Fart scent. Ha! Monkey Fart!
