Powell Pack-ed Gift Guide, Holiday Sales, + a 6 Day Giveaway

You guys, I’ll admit it. My tree has been up since before Thanksgiving because it’s the most wonderful time of the year, and I want to savor it for as long as possible. Isn’t that the excuse for the tree being up far past January? #notsorry Let’s be honest: Santa gets the praises, but Mrs. Claus knows where to find the best online sales. And even still, sometimes it’s hard to know where to shop and where to go for the best deals of the ho-ho-holiday season. To leave you feeling more like Cindy Lou Who and less like the Grinch, I’ve scoured the internet to share the best sales, AND I’ve partnered with some of my favorite vendors to give you extra savings you won’t find anywhere but here!

From the fashion lovers to the fitness fanatics, here’s my list of deals from various price points to save you time and money?after all, time is money, right? ? With all these savings, you’ll have some extra money in the piggy bank to #treatyourself while you’re at it. Hey, Mrs. Claus deserves to be rewarded for all that hard holiday work!

Shop Spanx Moto Leggings Here ?

1. Spanx (20% OFF sitewide 12/27-12/2): These Spanx Moto Leggings are my personal favorite, and I’ve mentioned them before (click here to see how I styled these leggings and other items for holiday outfits for busy moms). These grab-and-go leggings are perfect for shaping and giving you that extra feeling of glam even when you’re navigating the holiday storm. Want the look for less? I? love these budget-friendly faux-leather leggings on sale for $44 in select sizes.

2. Vince Camuto Prasata Ankle Bootie: These shoes are a favorite that I’ve blogged about before, and they are now on sale for under $100. If you want an extra $20 off your order, add this Elodie Teddy Jacket?(love it!) on sale for $25.98, and you’ll grab the shoes and jacket for $100. If you want the jacket alone, depending on when you buy it, you’ll get 50%-30% off now through 12/2. I also love this cardigan (pair it with the Spanx above) on sale for under $20 and then some for black Friday!

If you pick up this sweater, the Vince Camuto booties above, and these STS Blue Jeans that I blog about all the time, you’ll be out the door for under $150.

4. Belldini Chevron Duster: I love a brand that sends a good message, and Belldini is a family-owned fashion house whose motto is “Style At Every Size.” Their line includes the cutest tops for Missy and Plus sizes with a little extra sparkle and shine. I’ve partnered with them to give you guys 40% OFF using code HEIDI40. Some of my top picks are this Long Sleeve Ruched Cowl Neck Sweater (plus size available here), this cross-over tunic tank (under $50), and this Chevron Metallic Duster.

It’s no surprise, I love Cents of Style. I’ve partnered with them again to pick some of my favorite items. Use code HEIDIGIFT for 40% OFF my favorite picks. They are also giving 20% OFF anything not included below with code HEIDI20. It’s my gift from one busy mama to another.

Here are my top picks from Cents of Style:

1. Gia Beanie: I can’t wait to feel just like Elsa and build a real live snowman this holiday season. Too bad it never snows in AZ! But when those temps drop, I’ll definitely be ready in this leopard print Gia Beanie. Proof that just because you have to bundle up doesn’t mean you can’t be cute doing so.

2. Orson & Thelma Joggers: These joggers are great, and they come in so many colors, although I love the Smoke Green. These are perfect for late nights by the fire or for mornings spent wrapping those presents before the kiddos get out of bed. Click here for the matching top.

3. Bobbie Vest: Speaking of bundling up, I love this vest. It’s so soft and flattering. It’s the perfect vest to pair with the Gia Beanie.

4. Aria Slippers: All this girl?and probably most mamas?want for Christmas is to cozy up in these Aria Slippers. Comfort never felt so dang good!

5. Amber Sweater (Love in Blue/Plum): For any busy fashionists, this sweater makes an instant outfit.? I’ll be gifting this to Marley (and probably myself) this season.

6. Kat Cardigan: If you love those Spanx, they look even better paired with this Kat Cardigan and a tunic top. My absolute favorite grab-and-go for the season.

1. Boos Cutting Board: This cutting board is a household staple, and I get tons of comments whenever I post a photo of it. Funny enough, it was a gift, and it’s one of those items that I wouldn’t buy for myself (because it is a little pricey), but I’m BEYOND happy that someone got it for me because it’s so beautiful.
