Christmas will be here SOON! 🎅🏻

Looking for REALLY nice Christmas gifts for the special Men/Women in your life? Check out FIVE of our favorite gifts that we love here at Hip2Save! Keep in mind that some of these gifts are higher-end products and not so much about getting the “best” deal, but more about gifting a quality product that YOU love yourself!

Hip Tip: Before buying any of these products mentioned below, consider saving even MORE by snagging discounted gift cards from sites like eBay.com or Raise.com!

1.) Apple AirPods

The Apple AirPods instantly turn on and connect to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac as soon as you pull them out of the case. The audio automatically plays as soon as you put them in your ears and pauses when you take them out.

Plus, the AirPods offer 5 hours of listening time on just one charge and the charging case holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time! Just 15 minutes in the case will give you 3 hours of listening time! AWESOME!

“I love that the Apple AirPods stay in really well and that you can take one out and the music will stop. You can also tap them and it will activate Siri. The case that they come in also holds a charge so that when you pop them back in they will charge even when not plugged in. It only takes like 15-20 minutes to charge enough to last for three hours! They also work well with my Apple Watch! You don’t have to do the weird Bluetooth stuff… your phone just recognizes them automatically.”


2.) UE Wonderboom Waterproof Speaker

Know someone who likes to sing in the shower or wants to take their music with them? The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker offers clear, crisp, BIG sound with 10 hours of playback. Bring it in the shower, to the pool, the beach and everywhere in between!

  • Amazon: $79.99 shipped
  • Best Buy: $79.99 shipped
  • Costco: $119.99 (2-pack) – just $59.99 each shipped!

“The sound from this little speaker is amazing! I love that I can take it in the shower or to the pool and not have to worry about it getting wet!”


3.) Sorel Slippers for Men & Women

I am obsessed with my Sorel Slippers as they are SO cozy, soft and warm! They have a rubber sole so you can wear them around the house, to take the trash out or even on your next Target run – no one will even notice! 😉 Another perk – the quality rocks and you can wear them for years!

  • Amazon: Prices start around just $34!
  • 6pm.com: Prices start around $39.99!

AND, if you’re also a fan of Sorel boots like I am, you can score up to 65% off select styles of footwear when you enter promo code SORDEC65 at checkout, valid through 12/31. With winter right around the corner, now is a great time to stock up on cold weather gear and score a gift or two!

“Because I want to wear slippers shopping.


4.) Too Faced “Better Than Sex” Mascara

Anyone obsessed with mascara? This #1-selling Too Faced “Better Than Sex” mascara is AWESOME! It has film-forming polymers for smudge-proof, all day wear and it thickens, lengths, and curls after just one coat. You’ll get the amazingly luscious, dramatic, volumized lashes with this mascara!

  • TooFaced.com: $18.40 shipped when you sign up for their email newsletter and apply the unique 20% off promo code (sign up on landing page here)

  • Ulta.com: $23 + free samples at checkout. If you’re wanting to spend less out of pocket, you can snag the deluxe size mascara or ornament for just $12!

  • Sephora.com: $23 plus 3 free samples AND bonus offers with $25-$45 purchase!

“I LOVE the Better Than Sex Mascara as I am NOT a makeup guru and like an EASY routine. This mascara gives me lengthy and voluminous lashes with hardly any effort. It’s a lifesaver on my causal and dressy days. Couldn’t go a day without it!”


5.) Bodum Bistro Knife Block

Looking for a way to store your everyday knives? The Bodu Bistro Knife Block keeps your everyday paring, utility, chef’s and bread knives handy and safe. The inside of the knife block is made of a myriad of very fine plastic sticks allowing any knife to sit anywhere in the block – tight and secure.

  • Amazon: $33.77 shipped
  • Bodum.com: $30 + $7.95 shipping
  • Walmart: $33.77 + free store pickup or shipping on $35+ orders

“I hate typical knife blocks because you literally have to make sure to put the exact type of knife in each slot, and who has time for that?! 😩 I fell in love with the Bodum Knife Block because you can stick in any knives you please, and it looks awesome sitting on my counter too!”

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome!

  2. Skatemomto2

    I thought that blue tooth speaker was a bar of soap. I was all set to purchase it for my pastor. LOL

    • Nancy

      LOL!

    • Diana

      At first view I thought it was a blue rock with a cross on it!!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Lol! 😉

    • Vivian

      😂

    • Sassy_T

      Girl! You have me in tears from laughing. I laughed and re-read your message a couple of time.! Hahahahahah, I am still laughing.

      • Tiffani

        I’m with you laughing, in tears! Too funny.

    • Jessica

      Lol,me too! My husband is a youth pastor and I thought a bar of soap with a cross on it was unusual and made me open the link

      • Michelle

        That is why I opened it too!

    • rensife

      Look up “wash your sins away soap” – its a hoot hand soap or bar soap – My MIL’s pastor gave her a bar!!

      • Jessica

        Bahaha!! I’m gonna have to get some of those!

    • Pam

      Me too! I thought it was a “soap on a rope” thingy with a cross on it. At least our minds are on things “above”.

    • Michelle

      I thought it was a bath bomb for men with a cross on it… I thought maybe it had some scriptures or something inside… u was super confused too… lol

    • Sarah

      Me too I thought this was Christian gift ideas cause I’m not good with that

    • jane

      I thought so too and the cross would appear as you used it.

  3. Amy

    I have the waterproof speaker and absolutely love it! Maybe it’s lame but it honestly makes my mornings so much better. I take mine in the shower with me and play “happy music” haha it’s impossible to have a bad day when you begin it dancing in the shower (sorry for the mental image!)

    • Hunterwoody

      Me too!! It’s been on our pool more than once and dropped. It’s awesome!!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome to hear the speaker has been a fun way to start your day Amy! Thanks for the feedback!

  4. Jadabloom23

    Anyone know if Sorel is pretty true to size? Especially for boots.

  5. Natalie

    I know that you had a previous listing for the AirPods from Kohl’s, but every time that they offer Kohl’s cash (first it was $15 for every $50 and now it’s currently $10 for every $50 spent) the AirPods are mysteriously out of stock. It’s so annoying, because I know that as soon as the Kohl’s cash ends (I think on December 6) then they’ll put them right back in stock. Ugh!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I know! So frustrating to grab them when they go out of stock so quickly. Hopefully they pop up again soon!

  6. Angela

    The slippers in the picture are cute, are these available?

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi Angela! If you click through the Amazon link for the Sorel Slippers, you can scroll through the styles to find those that are similar in style to the pair pictured above. Hope that helps!

    • JES

      I have these slippers, you will LOVE them. I received them as a gift a few years back and they are so comfy and still in great shape.

      • HipMomof3

        I looked through them and cannot figure out which pair are the ones pictured. I really like that style and pattern. Do they have specific names for different styles so I can search that way?

  7. Aleshia Jones

    Not a fan of the overpriced mascara. After all the rav reviews I decided to try it. My husband got it for me for Christmas last year at ULTA. I have naturally long eye lashes and this made them clump so bad. I love my butterfly maybelline for 7 bucks.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Darn! Sorry to hear you did not care for it. Thanks a bunch for your honest review!

    • Amanda

      I had the same experience but with all the rave reviews I wonder if the tube I received from Ulta was a tad on the older side.

    • Swirlypop

      Same bad result for me unfortunately. Too clumpy. I look like a raccoon within a few hours.

    • Victoria

      I agree! I recently that mascara as a deal from Sephora and I am not a fan. It’s very thick and very hard to remove. It made my eye lashes heavy

    • *Angela-Miles*

      Didn’t care for it either.

  8. rose

    Who won today? Finding it difficult to find everything on Hip2. Not fun.

  9. mel

    Anyone tried the mascara? A lot of reviews saying it flakes/leaves deposit under the eye after a bit…any input on this?

    • Samantha

      I have been using it for a couple of years, I absolutely love it. But I only use the original, not the waterproof. I am not a fan of the waterproof at all. I’ve never had problems with flaking.

  10. Shari M

    Been using the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara for a couple years and I just love it they also had a really neat little $10 version at the Sephora inside Penney’s when I went there to see about Black Friday items perfect for in your handbag if you need to carry it along

  11. acgold

    I want to tell everyone about the Costco shearling slippers. They are exactly like the Uggs for a fraction of the cost. Both mens and womens are equally great gifts. They wear well and have a harder bottom , so you can wear them outside if you need to get the mail, or newspaper or just around.

    • Kalynn

      Are they only in store? I tried searching on their website but I couldn’t find anything.

  12. Allison

    The mascara I think Is great but there are lots of drug store options just as good–which is what I use now. 😉

  13. Sandra Lopez

    Love the waterproof blue tooth speaker! My hubby will enjoy this!!

  14. Patty

    Got the knife holder for my knife snob husband

  15. Jeni

    Any suggestions for a smudge proof eyeliner?? Please help as I cannot find one that’s not all smudged half way through the work day!! TYSM !!!!!

    • Caitlin

      I really like MAC eyeliner

    • Heather

      LimeLight by Alcone Perfect Eyeliner!!! Try it!

      • Jeni

        Omgosh TY, just trying to decide what to try first. I was first using Sephora eyepencil and that smudged so bad I wish I could post a picture to show how bad it gets!! Thx guys!!

    • Sarah

      Mary Kay eyeliner never smudges!

    • K

      Urban Decay 24/7. You can always return if you don’t like it.

      • Jeni

        Wow thank you everyone for all the suggestions, I really really appreciate it I feel like I’ve tried so many including expensive and non-expensive !

    • Samantha

      I actually started buying the body shop’s gel eyeliner and it is amazing and stays put all day!

  16. Debbie Auen

    Wow! Ty. I’ve been wanting to try this mascara & that knife block looks so cool!!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome!

  17. AOhio

    Would love the knives and the block!!

  18. Stephanie

    This isnt a gift for adults, but my walmart had a big display of Lol surprise glitter series and Lol pets for sale today!

  19. catsea1

    I am a HUGE fan of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and it’s been my go to for many years. I know, I was hesitant to pay $24 for a tube of mascara, but this stuff is MAGIC. Also, I’m a fan of the pink tube, not the green waterproof one (i found that one is too runny). I say go out and purchase yourself a tube, if you don’t like it you can return at Ulta or Sephora. I love this stuff so much that i often gift this to my cheap girlfriends so they know just how amazing this stuff is!!! 😉

  20. Kim

    Best eyeliner is the felt tip pen, physician formula, in the grey thin tube with black cap. I only use for top lid but after it dries it hasn’t smeared. And usually you can get for just a few bucks with cvs deals

  21. Chris

    Is the knife holder easy clean? I worry about the plastic things getting gross. Thanks!

  22. Amie

    great!

  23. joannem

    Macys had the double pack of too faced mascara for $10, my niece swears by it!!!

  24. june

    Found those exact wonderboom speaker today at target for $49 on clearance. Only the red ones though,! There was like 4 Of them on the end cap.

  25. Jeanette

    Thanks for all of your deals!

  26. kathy linthacum

    Thought the blue speaker was soap on a rope with a cross…..for my religious friend
