Gifts To Steal from Loved Ones

Gifts To Steal from Loved Ones: Day 7 of 12 Days of Shopping

For day 7 of our 12 Days of Shopping series, Jeanette and I are getting sneaky.

Day 7 Gifts to Steal From Loved Ones

  • Self-serving gifts (things to give to your husband and kids that you really want)
  • Disappearing gifts (gifts that you receive but everyone else takes)


Clothes are fair game in our house to steal. There’s already the general confusion as to who owns what now that the girls are close in size to me. But there is something about men’s wear that appeals to us; it’s oversized and cozy. So beware, these are gifts that are going to be swiped.

Johnnie O’s Quarter Zip Sweatshirt, $115

Made of 100% Pima interlock cotton, it’s soft and warm.

Kiehl’s Forest Rain Unisex Cologne, $39

It’s fresh and woodsy, with a hint of citrus. I like men’s cologne because it’s lighter.

The Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones are among the best available for less than $200, offering excellent sound and build quality according to CNET. $119

PickyKidPix and I fight over the Tweezerman Slant Tweezers because we both obsessively tweeze our eyebrows. It doesn’t seem to matter how many are floating around; the newest one always gets swiped. (They sharpen old tweezers for free too!).  $16<

The Soy Face Exfoliant from Fresh is another skin care beauty product that disappears … I’ll admit that I stole it from PickyKidPix and I like it so much I finally got my own. $42

Grasshopper and Sensei reminded me of how I stole her Patagonia fleece sweatshirts. I’m wearing hers right now, in fact! Technically I inherited them when my daughter grew of out them and they get me through winter dog walking! $99

  1. Love that fleece sweatshirt to steal!

  2. I knew I’d love your picks. I couldn’t wait to see what you chose for this because the topic is so personal! Must try the Kiehls; I hate so many scents that are made for women.
