So, I’m not one of those people that shop all year for Christmas presents so that by the time December rolls around, I only have a few things to get. Nope. You’ll find me scouring the internet and paying for overnight shipping to get my gifts in on time. It’s not even that I don’t have ideas of what to get people. I think the problem actually is that I have too many ideas and can’t decide.
Usually I peruse magazines and the internet for gift ideas, but I often find myself discouraged by what’s in the magazines because they are WAY out of my price range. Now, I don’t know what Christmas looks like at other people’s house, but at my house, we don’t spend $300 or more per person on gifts.
But, for those of you that need some ideas (most of them reasonable), Lonny Magazine has some great suggestions (p.s. why is Lonny magazine is everywhere now? And where the hell have I been that I just found out about it a week ago?).
Of course I love the Etsy suggestions:
My favorite of the Etsy finds is the bowl and the necklace. The bowl is from seller Etco and the necklace is from Orit Hadad. Yes, the necklace is a little steep, but the rest of her jewelry is so reasonably priced, and absolutely gorgeous!
And, here are some suggestions for the Artsy person in your life.
And for the Eco friend of yours…
And, for the French-loving, girly girl:
Which are your favorites?
