Inexpensive Unique Christmas Gift Ideas Under $10


The 2016 holiday shopping season is here, and I've been gathering together lots of funny, cute and personalized gift ideas on Zazzle - all of them $10 and under. It's always a fun challenge to collect the best gifts that fall into this inexpensive price range. While these gift ideas are cheap price-wise, they are still totally unique and custom, making them perfect for a stocking stuffer or an office secret santa / white elephant gift exchange. They are also perfect for anyone who wants to give a thoughtful gift while on a budget.

I blogged about last year's list here, if you want to check out even more gift ideas!

The 2016 list is full of over 200 gift ideas. You can check out the entire list here. I'm going to show you some of my favorites:

1. This custom moonshine design is brand-new, and it looks great on the can coolers and drink coasters. Make your own moonshine by adding your photo and text. You can even change "Tennessee" to your own state or country. This would make a great gift for your husband or dad.

I'm still adding this design to a wider range of products and in more color options. You can check out the whole selection here. Let me know if you don't see the design or color on the product you want. 

2. Calendar magnets. These are practical and personal at the same time. On these two, you can add your photo behind the calendar. The top one works best for darker photos, and the bottom one for lighter photos. Check out all our 2017 calendars in this collection here.

3. There are plenty of funny, silly magnets, buttons and bottle openers in the collection. The top magnet here is for any older person in your family with a sense of humor. It's a great gift for a birthday. You can customize the year:

Run your own coffee shop with this magnet:

This magnetic bottle opener with a bottle cap look lets you own a brewery and pub:

This button with a personalized anchor is fit for a boat captain:

4. The collection has more post-it notes this year. These simply elegant zebra striped ones are for the stylish person in your life:

5. These custom air fresheners are for the RVers in your family. The design also comes in a different color option here.

6. Out of all the jelly bean / mint tin options, I'm partial to this Art Deco one. I gave it to a relative for Christmas last year, and she loved it. It's a small tin that fits in your pocket. There are a few more in the collection:

I hope you enjoy the entire collection!

Thanks for stopping by!

New Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Your Holiday Party 2016


My absolute favorite thing about the Christmas season is designing new, ridiculous "Ugly Christmas Sweater" shirts. Each year, I try to see if I can come up with ideas that are even funnier and odder than last year. So, I thought I would show you some of my Ugly Sweater designs that are new - and my favorites through the years.

Here they are, all new and shiny and incredibly tacky:

1. How could Christmas not be influenced by politics this year? I made a couple different versions of this one where Vixen the reindeer looks like Nixon.

2. Kitty cats always make great Ugly Sweater themes. I have a couple Christmas kitties right now, and will probably make even more in the future. Here's one I made last year:

This year, I went all dark and made an evil demon cat who wants nothing more than to destroy your holiday festivities. Meet Krampuss:

3. I also got inspired by weightlifting. Who doesn't want to look all tough while wearing an Ugly Sweater? I figured Santa Claus had been working out a lot this year:

And maybe you've been working out a lot, too:

4. Then I decided that nothing is better for an Ugly Holiday Sweater than something that might shock your grandma. So I made these. How about Santa flashing through the snow with a strategically-placed Christmas package?

Or the shocking realization that you, somehow, know what Blitzen the Reindeer tastes like:

I made this one last year. You've been naughty! Santa will have to take down your stocking!

5. Here's another one I made for women. I love how big the bow ended up being. Nice and cheesy!

6. Of course, you can't have Ugly Christmas Sweaters without some drinking themes. I made the first two last year, one for women and one for men:

Then there's the classic, Santa Claus holding a beer:

This is just a small sample of the tackiness!

GO HERE to explore the whole collection.
If you're looking for a Christmas t-shirt or all-over-print tank top, I also have those COLLECTED HERE.

New Unique Leggings on Zazzle + Coupon Code


Zazzle recently introduced all-over-print leggings, and I've been having tons of fun designing them. In fact, I've made so many that I have an entire collection full - and the list is growing! 

I thought it would be fun to show off some of my favorites, especially since they are 50% today through midnight Pacific Standard Time (November 2nd, 2016). Just use the code NEWOUTFITS4U at checkout and get these beautiful, unique leggings at half price.

1. I absolutely love this brand-new one. I made them to look like a knitted / cross stitch Christmas sweater. These intricately-designed leggings have a festive pattern made up of snowmen, reindeer, pine trees, birds, mountains, snowflakes and much more. No one else will have a pair of holiday leggings as gorgeous as these!

2. Are you from the future? If you are, you need some space pants. I made this design specifically for leggings, because nothing is cooler than wearing the universe. These are geometric and futuristic looking, and each triangle has a different glimpse of outer space inside, from galaxies to nebulae, the moon, the sun, stars, and more.

3. Maybe you've traveled here from the past instead of the future. These geeky leggings are covered in an original pattern I made to look like vintage library card catalog drawers. As a bonus, each drawer has a different author's name on it.

4. Since I can't stop loving books, I also had to add my bookshelf pattern. This one has a 3D / trompe l'oeil effect that's really cool.

5. I got inspired to make some tribal patterns while watching Survivor. These are a couple of my favorites:

6. These poker suit leggings would be perfect for a trip to a casino in fabulous Las Vegas:

7. Oh no! You're covered in bees! This honeybee design is one of my all-time favorites.

8. Wear your coffee love with these cute bean pattern leggings.

9. Go all Great Gatsby / Jazz Age with these swanky black-and-gold Art Deco shell leggings:

10. Paint yourself in colorful autumn maple leaves for the fall season:

That's just a small sample of all the beautiful leggings I have to offer.

And don't forget to use coupon code NEWOUTFITS4U at checkout to get these unique leggings 50% off through midnight Pacific Standard Time (November 2nd, 2016).
