2015 Holiday Gift Guide and Giveaway

Raise your hand if you love a giveaway! I’m super excited to be taking part in the 2015 Holiday Gift Guide and Giveaway blog hop with some of my favorite bloggers. I did it last year too and had so much fun searching for gifts that hopefully helped give you guys some ideas of what to put on your list or what to buy for a friend.

Here’s how it works. The hop started yesterday with 5 bloggers and 5 awesome gift guides. Each of those bloggers is giving away something from their guide and there will be 5 new ones each day this week. That means 25 awesome giveaways for you to enter. Pretty sweet right?

This year I decided to put together a little gift guide for the Furniture Flipper. After doing this for about 2 years, I’ve come to realize there are some must have items that I can’t live without and I wanted to share them with you.

Gift Guide for the Furniture Flipper

Of course you can flip furniture without it, but my makeovers usually always involve paint. Country Chic is a product I’ve used multiple times and have always had a great experience with. They have the best selection of colors, in my opinion. Oh and this awesome starter package is what I’m giving away today 😉

2. Ryobi Corner Cat Sander
A sander is an absolute must. I don’t use it on every makeover, but when you have stubborn veneer you want to remove, this guy gets the job done. We’re besties.

3. Measuring Tape
I need to attach one of these to my body somehow. I always lose mine. And how pretty is this gold one??

4. Hammer
There’s always something that needs hammering. Trust me.

5. Scissors
A must have. Especially gold ones.

6. Ryobi Cordless Drill
I don’t own this…yet, but I need it. We don’t have a cordless drill and it’s always a pain having to make sure you’re near an outlet to use it.

7. Bluetooth Speakers
Friend’s of ours recently gave us these speakers as a gift and they are amazing. Sometimes working with no music is relaxing and peaceful, but jamming out is just as fun. Especially when you have a project that’s taking a while to finish.

8. Hardware
One of my favorite things about flipping furniture is the pretty new hardware.

9. Scrubby Soap
I was recently introduced to this stuff and will never use anything else. It gets literally anything off my hands and smells amazing.

10. Scissors
This is another thing I lose all. the. time. I need to buy like 10 of them and keep one in each room of the house. I recently discovered this one at Target and am obsessed. It has every head you need all attached to one body, and it has a little light to help you see into those dark nooks and crannies.

11. HomeRight Sprayer
I only started spraying some of my furniture recently, but it’s a total game changer.


As mentioned above, I’ll be giving away this awesome Starter Package from Country Chic Paint. Here’s what it includes:

  • two pints of All-in-One Decor Paint in the colors of your choice
  • 4 oz jar of All-in-One Decor Paint in the color of your choice
  • 4 oz jar of glaze in the color of your choice
  • 4 oz jar of natural wax
  • 2 oz jar of antiquing wax
  • medium paint brush
  • FREE color card

GOOD LUCK! And don’t forget to check out all the other amazing giveaways listed at the bottom of this post 🙂

    YES! I use all of these all the time except I don’t have a Homeright Sprayer…that might have to change. I need to try out that scrubby soap too. Great gift guide, Bre! By the way, is #10 supposed to say “screwdriver”? I know pregnancy brain is a very real thing. 😉

    What a great list of gift ideas, Bre! I’m thinking I need to start doing more furniture makeovers — just for the cool toys. I’m getting ready to re-do my sons’ room after the first of the year and could use the paint to help with some projects in there.

    Oh, I am so excited. Kind of on purpose I spray painted my white tin cans to make snowman on my dining room table. Darn! Not really. Had already decided I was going to paint it and oh joy I have to. In between Thanksgiving and Christmas or Christmas and New Years. Table clothes hide a multitude of white circles on my table now.
