2016 Gift Guide

main_header_giftguide.jpg

I have been blasting Carey, Bublé, Crosby, and, *Nsync since before turkey day, but it is finally beginning to look and feel like Christmas. According to Instagram Stories, all trees have been picked up and all halls have been decked, except for ours. And even though this is one of my favorite times of the year, I felt a little tinge of Grinch creeping in and a tiny bit Scroogy, and vowed that I would not be decorating, gifting, or baking this holiday. Which is shocking, and really only lasted till last night, when I pouted and declared it did not feel like Christmas around here (mind you, I said this while Ella Fitzgerald was singing about Frosty). So as of today, we are on a mission to deck the apartment out. Meanwhile, I owe everyone who's asked about this year's 12 days a huge apology because sadly, that still isn't happening. I promise I'll share a few holiday goodies to make up for it, starting with a guide to all my favorites. I have and love each and every one of these pieces, and you better believe many of my friends and family members have found some or many of these items under their trees!
