Prime Purchases: December 2021

Hello! Well, today is one of my favorite posts of the month. I always love sharing my purchases as much as I love seeing what others have bought on Amazon this month.

So, I’m linking up with Tanya for this month’s Prime Purchases.

Here are my purchases this month:

Since I bought a second pencil tree this year, I decided to re-order the same tree skirt that I bought last year. I love this white knitted tree skirt. It’s the perfect touch for my trees.

I shared this tunic top in a Friday Favorites post, and it’s still one of my faves to wear. I love the color and the style so much.

Well, Hayden is catching up with Hadley. He grew five inches this year which means his “holiday” pants don’t fit. He knows I don’t care if he wears shorts 95% of the time, but he needs at least one, maybe two pairs of khaki pants.

I actually bought both pairs assuming I’d return one. Then, once he tried them on and they fit, I remembered they were each only $16, so we kept both! It’s good to have options.

Hadley has pretty good skin, but she asked for these “pimple patches” to take care of the occasional blemish. They’ve come in handy a time or two. Also, the whole family can use them if needed 😉

The kids were long overdue for some hangers. I’d often find their clothes on the floor of their closets because they mostly had the smaller hangers. I guess big kids with big clothes need bigger hangers!


I purchased this candle pack for my friend who has a December birthday! I thought she could use these all month long. They came in this cute box, and they smell so good.

Scented Christmas candles

I recapped a few of the kids’ birthday gifts that I purchased from Amazon last month. (Everything is linked in that post) I got Hayden these golf balls and a book. Hadley received a book as well along with the popcorn popper.

I also picked up this candle, but it will be a Christmas gift for her. It’s so cute, and smells great.

Technically, this last item is a December purchase, but my new Christmas table runner arrived yesterday.

I ordered the longer one (14×108″), and it’s the perfect festive fit! Just thought I’d share now in case it’s something anyone is interested in for holiday decor.

I’m also sharing some of my best purchases of 2021. Some of these were also purchases in 2020 that I’ve bought again for gifts throughout the year.

A recent love is the popcorn popper that I got Hadley for her birthday. We use it so much, and I think it’s a great gift idea too! We have the “family size,” but they have a “snack” size as well; and there are a few color choices. This would be so cute in a basket with popcorn kernels and some seasonings!

Here are my top five from the year (in no particular order):

I have this sweater in two colors and wear it on repeat. It’s perfect to wear with leggings or denim, and it is definitely worth the price point. Both of my sweaters are ones I pull from my closet often.

Turtleneck sweater

I have these slippers and put them on almost every morning. They are the first thing I put on my feet when I get home from school. I wear them in the summer and the winter. They are definitely a “must have” for me, and I’ve given them as a gift to a few friends.


I drink out of this coffee mug most mornings. It seems to keep my coffee warm longer than my other mugs even without the lid. It comes in a variety of colors, and, like the slippers, it’s another gift I’ve given throughout the year.

I have two of these blankets in the “slate blue” color in my living room, and we all love them. They are soft, cozy and not too heavy. It comes in a variety of sizes and colors.

Waffle fleece blanket

Let’s just say my gift giving “theme” must be cozy. The slippers, mug, and blanket are all I need to be happy.

I know most people aren’t thinking about sandals in December, but Hadley and I both have a pair of these, and they are on our feet all summer long. She has them in white, and I have the rose gold color. They are a great Birk dupe, and you can’t beat the price.


I have one more purchase to share. Besides the “clapper” that I use for my sunroom tree, these plug in with remote make it so convenient to turn off lamps, light up decorations or Christmas trees. I use this three pack for the living room tree, Hadley’s tree, and the tree in my room. Every evening I just click all three off without having to walk around unplugging everything.

Remote control outlet plugs

The ones I bought last year seem to be in limited stock, but this brand has over 10,000 4.5 star reviews. I’m guessing they would be perfect if you are looking for something like this.

Shew! That was quite a post. Amazon is always so convenient, but I feel like it’s such a great option during the holidays. I can’t wait to see what others have to share!

Thanks so much for reading,

  1. I love that tree skirt; it’s so pretty! I definitely need to think of getting something for our trees and light up stuff next year as my husband complains every night about having to unplug so many things (really it’s like 4 but whatever!).
