Holiday Gift Guide

Saturday, December 13, 2014

If you're anything like me, picking out presents may be either the easiest or most difficult part of the holiday season. For me, it always depends on the person. There are some friends and family members who have their certain "thing." For example, my brother loves all things Nike and shoe-related, my friend Katie loves baking and cupcake, and I like clothes and makeup. Then, there's always those wildcard friends and family members who like so many different things that you can't possibly narrow them down to purchase a gift. Gift guides are great for those types of people. I've found that, in general, people are appreciative of gifts no matter what, but it's always rewarding to see people using and loving what you've purchased them!

Also, am I alone when I say that I sometimes use other people's gift guides to pick out presents for myself? I'm the worst at trying to make Christmas and birthday lists nowadays because I genuinely don't need anything. I'll add a thing or two that I see on some gift guides to my own lists!
