Sale Snacks + Last-Minute Gifts + Thangs.

First, Shopbop has another crop of amazing discount finds, but the main thing I want you to know is that these Agolde jeans (which I own and love!) are on sale. You can see me in them here, with a few other great Shopbop sale finds beneath.

Second, the Reformation sale is still raging! So many amazing dress scores. Already plotting for happy summer adventures in them, God and COVID willing.

Third, yesterday, I bought the chicest planner for 2021 at 40% off! Note that this is a daily planner — the way I like it. (I create lists for every day of the week.) I included a few other great agendas/planners at all pricepoints here.

Fourth, I shared all of my current favorite running gear essentials here, and it occurred to me that a few of these items would make excellent gifts for running/exercise enthusiasts and are still available on Amazon Prime for next-day delivery. Specifically, these wireless bluetooth headphones are amazing — waterproof and virtually indestructible and so much better to run with than your more-expensive and easier-to-lose AirPods. The sound quality is inferior to be sure, but I much prefer them to AirPods, which can fall out of my ears! And this water-resistant pouch has been my best running buddy for five years and counting. Mr. Magpie bought it for me when I was at the peak of my running fitness pre-children and I felt like a dunce for having run around with keys jangling in my pockets (and occasionally, while holding my phone in my hand!) for so long. Super slim and low-profile — you barely notice it’s there. I find it to be the perfect size for my iPhone X, a credit card (my Dad instilled in me the necessity of always carrying cash or a card while running for emergencies), and my keys.

And while we’re on the topic of last-minute gifts, a few items that are still marked for pre-Christmas-delivery…

PRETTY PASTEL BEANIE OR HEADBAND — I JUST ORDERED ONE FOR MYSELF

FOR CHILDREN: ARTS + CRAFTS LIBRARY, PLUS PLUS TUBES (IN MINI’S STOCKING!), OR MAGNETIC DINOSAURS (WE HAVE A SET OF THESE + LOVE THEM — GREAT STEM TOY)

LAFCO CANDLE

MARVIS TOOTHPASTE SET — I GIVE MR. MAGPIE TOOTHPASTE IN HIS STOCKING EVERY YEAR…

HERMES BODY SOAP (COMES IN PRETTY BOX) OR MOLTON BROWN SHOWER GEL (LOVE ALL THEIR PRODUCTS) — PERFECT FOR WHEN THAT GIRLFRIEND UNEXPECTEDLY DROPS OFF A GIFT…!

ALO YOGA JACKET

P.S. A lot of the children’s books on this list can still be ordered for Christmas delivery!

  1. I absolutely love your beautiful and clever way with words, your insights and suggestions, and your obvious love for family.

    I save The Fashion Magpie for last when ‘doing my morning reading’!.., so I can savor your posts for a while before hopping up to begin my day….with my precious husband of 52 years!!!
    His name is Frank!

    In one of your recent posts, you referenced Olympia Le Tan handbags plus the knock offs from eBay! I was awestruck and showed a picture to my husband!

    On my 75th birthday, I received a mysterious package in the mail -inside was a pink clutch purse inspired from the cover of a March 21, 1970 New Yorker magazine! I squealed, I shrieked!
    I was shocked! I was thrilled!
    Frank said it ticked all the boxes….favorite color and magazine, our twins’ birthdate, and his grandfather name, Pup!

    So, thank you, thank you Jennifer!
    It is not my nature to be acquisitive, and in this case, I adore this gift for so many more reasons than the fact that it is simply a purse! I know you know what I mean!!!

    Have a joyful holiday season with all your adorable magpies!
    Fondly, Ivy Alley

    1. Ivy! Oh my gosh – this note positively made my day. Thank you so much for inviting me into your daily routine, and for sharing this incredible story about your sweet husband! What a thoughtful gift. Happy birthday, friend! And Merry Christmas!
