Favorite Amazon purchases from last year! Home Decor, Cleaning Items, Fashion, Kids's Books + Toys
About a month ago, I saw someone do a post on their favorite Amazon purchases from last year and I don’t know why but I found it SO fascinating and helpful.  It wasn’t a list of just the fun fluffy “summer tees” they love but only own maybe one of.  It was a list of their REAL LIFE favorite Amazon purchases.

I immediately went to my Amazon orders and clicked on 2018 and thought I LOVED some of these things… I wonder if other people would be interested in seeing what I bought for my family last year.

So here we go.  Most of the items were things for kid’s birthdays, Christmas, etc… so although I don’t typically do a ton of kid related things on the blog today’s post will have a heavy kid section.

We have Amazon Prime and clearly do most shopping this way, don’t judge the length of this list – this was the best from the entire year!

FAVORITE HOME DECOR ITEMS:
8″ Disco Ball – I LOVE having this catch the morning sunlight!
Blue + White Buffalo Check cloth napkins – Ah, these are such fun to use.
Feather Pillow Insert – Any decently prized feather pillow insert is a good idea.

FAVORITE MISC HOME ITEMS:
A 2 pack of glass Soap Dispenser bottles – I even got my sister to buy these.
Biscuit cutters – I started making JoAnna Gaine’s Biscuits + Gravy recipe and these were a must.

FAVORITE ADULT BOOKS:
Weaving Within Reach – My friend Anne wrote this book and I got a free copy.  However, it was SO gorgeous I ended up buying one for my sister.
The Love Dare for Parents – This is a book you read and it helps challenge you to tell your children you love them in 40 different ways.

FAVORITE FASHION ITEMS:
I bought a Blue Polka Dot dress from Amazon and was shocked with how much I love it.
Dr. Scholl’s Classic Slides – I grew up seeing my Mom rock these in the 80’s and now I’ve got to say, I adore their retro vibe.  I just bought myself ANOTHER pair (I now have tan + black).
New Apple Watch Band – I got the Hawksbill color and have really liked it.
Sleep Caftan – This is like sleeping in a cloud.

FAVORITE KID’S BOOKS:
Amelia Bedelia book set – I grew up on these books and love that my daughter now finds them so funny.
Rosie Revere, Engineer – We are completely obsessed with all the books from this series.
A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee – These books have the BEST illustrations and are so much fun to read.  My son has many of them now.
King Bidgood’s in the Bathtub – I read this book growing up and now my kids are, too.  We loooooove the details of the illustrations.  
Magic Eye – Apparently I love re-living my youth with my children, but they loved this book.
Berestain Bears – We are enormous fans of these books and have tons.  We got Trouble with Friends, Too Much Junk Food + Get the Gimmies
Dory Fantasmagory – Another book series my daughter likes.

FAVORITE KID GAMES/ACTIVITIES:
Kid safe knife set – My 6 year old son wants to be a chef when he grows up so we got these for Christmas to help make meals.
Tree Stump pillow + Tree Log pillow – We did a camping theme for all my son’s birthday gifts and these pillows were used for a “campfire” vibe.
Paint by Sticker animal book – I’m not sure who loved these more, me or my children!  These are perfect to take to restaurants or breweries.
HUGE Coloring Page – We love working on things like these little by little over the summer break.
Instant Snow packs – Just add water and magically snow appears!
Fort Magic – BEST gift I’ve ever given my kids for Christmas.  They can build endless forts that are tall enough for me to stand up in.  A ton of parts and pieces – they LOVE this.
Make your own Mini Erasers – My daughter is a crafter, no surprise there.  
Make your own Soap – We’ve all been using handmade soap by my daughter for months, ha.
3D Doodler – We have bought more of the plastic sticks twice because we all loving playing with this one!
Pretend Barber Kit – Seeing your 6 year old fake shave has to be the best thing ever.
