I recently Googled what not to buy your wife for Christmas and was shocked at what came up. Have you ever searched it? Right at the top of the list was appliances, and coming in at number one was vacuums. Clearly whoever was polled does not have a Dyson vacuum. Then, I fell even further down the Google rabbit hole and realized there’s this huge misconception that it’s not OK to buy appliances as Christmas gifts! I mean, what?! Well, I’m here to make a rebuttal. If you’ve ever used a Dyson product, a vacuum or otherwise, then you know what great gifts they make. Heck, I’d be glad to get a Dyson appliance for Valentine’s Day! That’s how amazing they are.
You get the picture, Dyson is incredible. But if you’ve never experienced the magic that is Dyson, I’m going to give you the lowdown on a few of their products. Also, don’t hesitate to ask for them this holiday season (or any other time)! Everything I’m going to talk about below will be linked to options on eBay where 81% of items are buy it now and new, so need to worry about bidding. Copy and paste the links of what you want and send them to your husband ASAP.
My Favorite Dyson Vacuum
When I got my first Dyson vacuum, the V8, it was actually life-changing. I know that sounds dramatic, but there’s never been a truer statement. It’s convenient, cordless, lightweight – I’d even call it chic. It eliminates all the reasons why no one ever wants to vacuum. Because let’s be honest, vacuums are usually heavy, difficult to maneuver and lift, and just generally a pain in the ass. With a Dyson V8, you’ll want something to spill just so you can whip out your vacuum. You’ll legitimately be happy to clean your house. I’m telling you, ask for this vacuum for Christmas. It literally solves all regular vacuum issues.
A few more facts about the V8 before I move on: I’ve had it for two years now and it works just as well today as the day I got it. It has the most powerful suction of any cordless stick vacuum (yes, it’s cordless). And it works on any surface. Trust me, I’ve tested them all.
I have to admit though, the Dyson V10 Absolute just came out and I feel like I want to upgrade because if the V8 is that good, the V10 must be out of this world! They say it has 60 minutes of run-time, includes a torque drive cleaner head and comes in an ultra chic matte black option. Sounds like vacuum heaven to me! Is it sad these are the things that get me excited these days? Whatever.
My excitement for all things vacuums has been great around our house lately too because we’re introducing chores to Zelda right now. I actually snagged her the Casdon Dyson V8 Kids Vacuum from eBay as a gift this year. It has real suction and you can empty out the bin like a real vacuum. It’s a fun way for us to teach her responsibility and give her a gift she’ll love for Christmas.
Dyson Hair Dryer
I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical of the Dyson Hair Dryer. I mean, I don’t care how much money you make, shelling out hundreds of dollars for a hair dryer can feel a little bit insane. However, I can now safely say this hair dryer is worth the hype and all the dollar bills. This thing is awesome. I’ve been using it since its release and can tell you it dries my hair significantly faster and saves it from heat damage. There’s no way for you to burn yourself either, which means it’s safe for the kiddos if they get their hands on it.
Dyson Air Purifier, Heater and Fan
If at this point you’re ready to go Dyson for everything in your house (I get it), you have to check out the Dyson Air Purifier, Heater and Fan. Just like you’d expect, this thing is magical. We’ve been using it for quite some time, but have been getting even more use out of since moving to Aspen. It can blow both heat and cold air depending on what time of year it is, while also purifying and cleaning your air.
Its function is amazing, but one of my favorite things about it is its design. It’s stunning to look at, is slim and comes in a few color choices depending on your space. You’ll be so, so glad you asked for it for Christmas.
Long story short, jump on the Dyson train. You won’t regret it and consider this message my Christmas gift to you. I use all their products and have never had a bad experience. To browse everything Dyson on eBay, go here. Or, to check out eBay’s Home and Garden section, go here.

How to Coordinate Clothes with Your Kid
I had to make a special section for Zelda and I’s outfits in this post because they were too good not to. I will be the first to admit, I love a good coordinated mommy-daughter look. I do it all the time for Zelda and me – sometimes even unintentionally. If you’re looking to coordinate with your daughter this holiday season, here are a few tips!
Play With the Color Palette
Don’t feel like you have to stick to a traditional holiday-themed color palette. You can see I went with a nude heel, which you might typically think is for summer, but it’s actually a great foundation for an outfit any time of year. I wanted to play with a really soft, pastel palette for this look so my Valentino Nude Rockstud Cage Heels worked perfectly with Zelda’s blouse.
And speaking of Zelda’s outfit, you can find so many great toddler blouses on eBay! Same goes with her jeans which are girls size Seven For All Mankind. We love buying her jeans on eBay because she grows out of them so fast.
Something that’s important for both mom and daughter for dressing during the holidays is comfort. My Cynthia Rowley dress is so forgiving and allows me to enjoy the night without having to feel like I need to change right after dinner. Also, my heels are right around three inches, which makes them very wearable instead of going for the extra tall pair.
And now you not only have your last-minute Christmas gift list stacked with amazing Dyson products from eBay, but you have some inspo for what to wear as well. If you have questions about any of the Dyson products, please don’t hesitate to ask. I love talking about them and sharing my experiences. I hope you find one of their products under your tree come Christmas morning!
