Duane Reade has been my bestie for as long as I can remember. I am on a first name basis with the lovely ladies at the location around the corner from my job (it’s been almost 8 years!). So I naturally went to my local Duane Reade Holiday Christmas supplies. I took the big boy with me, because he is fun company you know, except for when he decides to run the aisles or squeal insanely loud when he sees something he wants.
Since he is so familiar with the store his first stops is usually the cars display where he (unsuccessfully) tries to convince me that he needs his bazillionth car. This argument very creatively detailed why I needed to buy a new toy car for myself. Smh.
The first thing I got was bows. I was so inspired by the wrapping contest that I made a vow that ALL gifts will always have a bow!
They also had some really great ornament for the tree, am I the only one that thinks that you can’t get enough ornaments?!
I also saw these really adorable Christmas ears, and although he fought it, he put on a pair and smiled for the camera! So cute!
I of course bought some of the beautiful wrapping paper and boxes. Do I have anything to put in them yet? No. But I do have 10 or so days left to shop right? #nopressure
Then we ended up by the toys. He wanted everything of course, but what he didn’t know is that I picked up a ton of the day before for him and his brother for ridiculously low prices. You can’t beat transformers for $5.99! I might as well enjoy the early years BEFORE they start asking for the big gifts!
I saw some really cute gifts and stocking suffers from e.l.f cosmetics (Not actual elves but the letters stand for eyes lips and face–that would have been perfect though!) I have lots of elf eyeshadow so I was so tempted to buy it for myself! So if you have a makeup nut (read:me) in your life, this is a perfect gift!
And of course for the person who has everything (or a quick oh my gosh I totally forgot to get something!) there are gift cards! Look at the selection! Stores, restaurants and even social media gifts cards. Easy! Not to mention the holiday candy aisle…
I’m excited to put all of this to good use, you know, once I actually buy some gifts.
