This year I'm striving to only give handmade holiday gifts.  Whether made by me or one of the many talented craftspeoples out there, I want to spread the joy this Christmas with lovingly created prezzies.

Click the links for tons of gift ideas (especially for those hard to shop for folks!).

I think we all know a lady (or seven) like this... ; )


So many dudes in my glad for these "man themed" gift guides!

We do a "white elephant" gift exchange in this office.  But this year, mine will be the awesomest!


{ are you getting ready for this holiday season
(or am I seriously pushing it cause it ain't even Halloween yet?) }

Psssst! Don't forget -- send in your Look by Wednesday to be a part of our Virtual Fashion Show!

    Great gift ideas. I am aiming to start early this year and avoid the mad last minute-ness this year. ;)

    I am all about Christmas gifts and I love the idea of all handmade. That bike tee would be perfect for my Balazs and the globe is beautiful
    Happy Tuesday

    I'm thinking I'll be buying handmade this year too! Especially since I need to order online anyway so I don't have to bring back a bunch of presents or stress about buying them when i'm home visiting!

    I'm starting my shopping early this year too. I think it's a little easier now that I've got so many friends that make great handmade items. Ya for a handmade holiday!
