Holiday Gift Picks

14 Nov

So, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and Thanksgiving hasn’t even happened yet. What is wrong with us- or me? I am one of the people to blame for rushing along the holidays…I just can’t help myself. I hate to brag, but I am so excited to announce that I am almost done with getting gifts this year. I start early, that way it’s not such a shocker on the wallet come December. It’s also nice because I can organize, wrap and stay stress-free all December long. I also already put up my Christmas decorations. I blame that on Jeff being gone in California and boredom on my part- call my crazy- I KNOW IT’S A BIT CRAZY. Anyways, I thought it would be nice to put a post up about gifts. People are starting to ask what I want, what Jeff wants, etc. BUT, I started looking at gifts for them over a month ago, so I feel like I may have some good ideas to share with you…Who knows, maybe it will help when you have to figure out a gift for that impossible person who “has everything.”  So, let me share my finds!

Personalized gifts are always great. It’s so easy to have things personalized these days- as long as you ORDER EARLY and give the company time to personalize your items.
