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 or!

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!
  • 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!

  • $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)

  • $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!

  • $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
  • $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!”

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
