gifting 101

sorry i was m.i.a. on monday – i was experiencing some technical difficulties. i won’t go into all of that – let’s just get down to today’s post: gifting.

christmas is upon us. who’s excited for black friday shopping? ME!!! i love it. even if i don’t buy a single thing, i love to people watch. it’s the best.

so my family is huge – we used to draw names, but now we just play ‘rob your neighbor’ or ‘white elephant’. it is so fun! plus i get asked to participate in a couple of additional gift exchanges, too. i feel like every year it is so hard to come up with fun, inexpensive, quality gifts.

so this year, i decided to compile some of my ideas. they are very random, but the method behind the madness is that there is something for each person on your list. …of course, i could add in about fifty other things that would be equally as great, but these were the ones that came to mind for this post.

my hope is that you can use this to find some easy gifts for someone on your list! happy shopping.
