There’s one gift me and all of my girlfriends asked for for Christmas–A Dyson cordless vacuum. We’ve had a big upright ball Dyson for a couple years and then right before Thanksgiving, we brought it up to the cabin and forgot it–conveniently the same weekend we were having a bunch of people over for friendsgiving. I panicked–I have a big hairy dog! I can’t not vacuum! Chris ran to the store to pick up a stick vacuum and while the convenience was so nice, I realized very quickly, the suction and power of a Dyson cannot be beat, especially for our home (we need it). I’m converted. Right then I said, let’s look for a Dyson vacuum—cordless!–on Black Friday.
Black Friday came and I bought myself a new Dyson cordless vacuum (I found the best price on Ebay in their Dyson Outlet Store!) and put a big fat bow on it for one minute before I started using it. A lot of people ask me how I keep my house so clean with a big dog and three kids and I’m convinced it has to be convenient and fast and efficient. Over the last few weeks, this cordless Dyson has proved to be all those things. No more winding up a cord or moving the plug as I switch rooms. No going over areas multiple times to get up all the hair. It’s just so fast to clean up a quick mess or a rogue hairball.
Earlier this year, I bought a handheld Dyson for my car and then used it so much around the house, it barely ever saw the inside of my car. But the stick vacuums are convertible to handheld (how did I not even know that!?) So I actually feel like I got two gifts in one. (sorry about all the hair…I wasn’t kidding)
If you are thinking about gifting a Dyson vacuum (handheld, cordless, canister or upright!), or a blow dryer or a desk fan or any of their other top rated products, it’s not too late. eBay’s shipping is super fast and the majority of products ship for free in under 2 days. Almost everything I buy, I check eBay to see if they have it for a better price and they almost always do.
Our new vacuum lives in the garage, right off the laundry room where it automatically charges when it’s not in use. If all that doesn’t sound like a Merry Christmas, I don’t know what would!
Here are a few of my picks from the Dyson outlet on eBay if you’re looking for a great gift!
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
