The holidays always have me questioning my gift giving skills; for some, I nail the gift completely and am so proud to hand off; and for others, it's last minute and impersonal. It's a good gift, everything aside - it's not like I'm going to give crap to someone...but it may not have been the perfect gift.
And for a holiday like Christmas where everyone is running around doing everything else they have to do on top of checking off the gift list, it seems to be an impossible holiday to purchase a meaningful present for everyone you need to buy for.
And every Christmas season, I promise myself that I am going to do it differently the following year; I will buy a gift a month, I will store it away; I will not think twice if I come upon the perfect present for one of my loved ones.
I never do it.
So...second best idea. Since this is the place where I share my inspiration as well as little views into my life, why not create a category to house all the things I think would make great gifts? That way, I know exactly where to go for ideas and I will never feel as if something I took the time to wrap is inadequate ever again.
Here's a few to start the list:
Home - Vacum Beads. Okay, maybe not a gift for everyone BUT you could package it together in a cool way ...whatever, I would dig getting these. From The Good Home Store - $20
Home - Gemstone Magnets to glam up your fridge - who wouldn't want this?! From leifshop.com - $38
Book - Commune. Killer design ideas, all based on California living. - $60
