Can you believe the holiday season is so close! It is always a good idea to start thinking about holiday shopping in October. It helps us to organize our list, and solidify our budget. While this is an annual prep routine, 2020 is little bit different.

This year, online holiday shopping is expected to explode. Since many people live in areas where things haven’t fully reopened, and people are still skeptical about going out in public to do shopping, online shopping is going to be the main way people shop for the holidays. Since so many people will shopping online, delivery companies may find themselves with an overload of packages to deliver. This is expected to result in slow delivery times; which could delay the arrival of your gifts to your doorstep.

Since so many people will be flooding online shopping, it is wise to shop early in order to ensure the gifts we buy arrive in time for the holidays! I made the mistake of shopping late last year and my son’s Christmas gift arrived two days after Christmas. I cannot even begin to tell you how devastating this was for us. This year, I am starting to shop now; and I highly recommend you start too!

To kick off holiday shopping for her, I have put together an early bird holiday gift guide with fabulous gifts for her. I hope you love it! I know I do! Hopefully people who have me on their list see this 🙂 hehehehe

BAF Weekly IT List

whats hot for fall

BAF Weekly IT List from top left: holiday nail polish (see review here) / black bucket bag (classic IT bag) / breast cancer plush blanket / cozy brown slippers / classic black loafers (under $200) /

The weekly IT list is here! This week we are well into fall, and some of us are even starting to look ahead to the holiday season; especially since Halloween isn’t the party this year it normally is. This festive holiday nail polish is the uplifting, sparkling color we all need right now, and it’s under $30. Love that!

Classic bucket bags continue to be a hot IT bag style this season. This classic IT bag should already be in your closet. If it isn’t, why not snap one up now? I love mine. It’s really strong, and it maintains it’s shape year after year. Mine is already six years old, and it looks amazing! If you are looking for a workhorse investment bag, this is it!

It’s getting cooler at night, which means we all need a cozy blanket to snuggle with while watching TV, or roasting s’mores in the backyard. This one happens to benefit breast cancer research and awareness. Love that!

Slipper season is here! This pair is ultra cozy and soft, and a must-have! They also make a great holiday gift; in case you are an early bird holiday shopper like me. These will be a great gift!

Have you invested in a pair of classic loafers yet? If not, this pair is priced under $200 and they are very comfortable. Plus, they will be in style for years to come. The come in other colors too if black isn’t your thing; or if you want to another color to your collection.
