Amazon Prime Purchases - December

I am so behind on blogging. With the holidays I had a few posts written, but then I enjoyed family time and never read any posts or interacted. Then I forgot to do my monthly Prime Purchases post, so here we are. Only a day or two late. Some of these are Christmas gift ideas, but they are still perfect for random gifts, birthday gifts or even Valentine's Day gifts. So what did we buy?

Golf Club and Ball Cleaning Wipes

I put these in Rory's stocking. They have amazing reviews and can clean your clubs or your balls.

Youth NFL Shirts

I got these for my girls, but they have every NFL team. I got my girls a size small and they fit perfectly. Plus I love the old school look to them.

Silicone Makeup Brush Case

I got this for myself and put it in my stocking. I usually roll up my makeup brushes in Kleenex and this seems like it is a better deal for me. I love that it zips and can fit all of my brushes. Plus it is easy to clean.

More Yards Golf Tees

I got these for Rory's stocking. I didn't really get them for a longer drive, but more so as tees break all the time and these are supposed to last forever.

Sleeping Earplugs

These come in an 8 pack. I use these to sleep every night because my husband snores and I travel a lot. They are comfortable in my ears and it was time to replace my old ones as I was on my last set.

Ruffwear Dog Sweater

I got this for Walter for Christmas as it is just like his other sweater (same brand), but this one doesn't have a zipper like the other one. I like the bottom material on this one better, but I do wish it had a zipper. Walter loves it and it keeps him warm.

Christmas Ornament

I got this for a Christmas ornament exchange. I love Christmas Vacation and this one was a hit at the party.

Slice Ceramic Blade

I saw this on an Instagram ad and thought it was really cool, but I didn't want to pay shipping on it. So I found it on IG and bought it for Rory's stocking. It opens everything!

Awesafe Biometric and Keypad Safe

Yes we bought a gun/small safe for the house. I don't care what your views are on guns, but if you have them, they need to be locked up. This one holds up to two guns and/or other personal items. Our house was broken into in 2011 and we wanted to have protection after that. And now that the girls are getting older, I don't feel safe with them just being hidden.

Mini Brands 3 Pack and Collector Case

My girls are very into playing kitchen and I thought this set would be fun for their play kitchen. It was a huge hit and they bought themselves more with their birthday money.

Ring Light with Phone Stand

I got this for Rory for Christmas since he has been making more reels and stories for his mortgage Instagram account. He complains about the lighting in his office, and this one has several settings to help with that. It has a sturdy tripod and it has amazing reviews. Plus it came with a carrying case.


My hair was having some issues and I needed something to help with it. My hairstylist suggested Biotin to help make it strong and not break as using a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. I have been using both for a few weeks and my hair looks so much better. Plus it feels better.

3 Pack Kids Gloves

This was another gift for the girls. They needed new gloves to wear outside at school that were not snow gloves. They said these are warm and comfy.

And that's it. I didn't purchase a ton. Mostly some Christmas gifts and a few other odds and ends. What did you buy this month?


  1. Zachary likes ear plugs when we travel, I may have to get him that set!

    1. They are so comfy in the ears too. That is a big plus of these.

  2. Checking out that ring light - I've been looking at so many & get so confused on what I need so I just dont order anything

    1. I researched for him. It isn't cheap, but it is a good one.

  3. I picked up those golf tees for my father in-law, and am curious to find out if they actually help give a longer drive - Ha! Happy New Year <3

  4. That ornament is awesome! Haha. I need to remember that one for B next year!

  5. That ornament is perfect! I love that movie too.

  6. Love that ornament too! Our family loves that movie!

  7. My husband snores too, I need to get those sleeping earplugs! That ornament is so cute!

    Jill - Doused in Pink

    1. They are a lifesaver for my sanity. Ha. The ornament was a hit!

  8. We get so many packages, I need something to better open them with!

    1. It is a cool device and doesn't cut your hand. That is what I liked about it.

  9. Ooh, thanks for the golf-related ideas! My dad golfs and I know zero about it really, so your picks could come in handy for his upcoming birthday... :)
