When you’re a busy mom there’s ALWAYS a gift you need to get last minute. Or a gift you just can’t seem to find. Solution? Amazon! And with Amazon Prime you can get free 2-day shipping on thousands of items – and sometimes 1-day shipping! Give it a try and solve all your holiday shopping problems.
Don’t tell anyone, but I actually LOVE Christmas shopping. And I secretly wish that there was a longer shopping season. (But hubby is glad it isn’t longer!) I don’t know if I get all my best ideas last minute, or if the stores don’t put out their good deals until then, and that gets me going. I put a great deal of care into picking out the perfect gift for every person on my list. (Check out my family gift guides!) But every year, without fail, I have great present ideas that I just can’t find in local stores.
Amazon is the solution!
10 Reasons Busy Mom’s Need Amazon Prime this Holiday Season
1. Free 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime
Need I say more? 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime, for those last minute things little things you think of can be a life saver! And for those things you just can’t find in stores anywhere. You can get it in time for Christmas!
2. Amazon Prime is perfect for shipping care packages to college kids during finals.
If you’ve got kids in college, you want to send them care packages during finals. Homemade cookies is always a winner. But the cost of shipping it yourself doesn’t make it cost effective to send very many cookies. Plus, there are many days of finals and you want them to feel cared for the whole time! Space out multiple shipments with Amazon Prime.
3. Listen to Christmas music ALL DAY LONG while you bake and wrap with Amazon Prime.
With Amazon Prime, you can listen to Christmas music all day long, with NO ads, while you bake and wrap.
You can upgrade to Amazon Music Unlimited but to be honest, I’ve never need it. With over 2 MILLION songs in Amazon Prime, you’re bound to find some of your Christmas favorites.
Listen to Prime Christmas Stations like Holiday Favorites.
Or pick your favorite albums – one of my all time favorites for Christmas is Nat King Cole.
Or let Amazon make playlists for you, like the Holiday Movie Favorites Playlist.
Or make your own playlist, and never hear “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” again!
You can make the perfect playlist for holiday decorating, the perfect playlist for holiday baking, the perfect playlist for package wrapping…the ideas are endless!
4. Keep the kids busy while you wrap their presents with free access to Prime Video for Christmas videos
Christmas specials are one of the fun parts of Christmas. When I was a kid, you had to stalk the TV listings and take your bath early to watch them before bed. But now you can use it whenever you need to, to keep the kids busy while you do “Santa Things.”
If you’ve got a smart TV, the kids can watch it on the big screen. Hint: If you need a FANTASTIC present for Dad, my hubby says this is the best TV for the money. Any man would be thrilled to find this under the tree Christmas morning.
