i love a good gift guide.
when you stumble across someone with your same style (or in my case, a style that is far superior but that i would love to just copy), and they have done all the hard work of finding and showing off some of their favorite gifts...it's just like cherry picking.
BlogHer has compiled a series of gift guides and put them in one handy dandy place for your drooling/perusing pleasure.
a few of my faves:
-almost everything on this list of gifts for the shutterbug in your life. these all have such a cool aesthetic and say, "oh hey, you're better at cameras than me. good job with that! i love you and, hey, merry christmas."
-i am just smitten with the charitable gift idea of sponsoring a woman entrepreneur in a developing nation. $30 a month provides training through Women to Women international. talk about the gift that keeps on giving!
-perfect for gifting (aka, something i want myself), this "gifts for the crafter" list includes at least 2 things that i want so bad but can never justify spending money on. if youve got a crafter on your list, spoiling them with treats like washi tape or pretty baker's twine seems like a slam dunk.
take a look around at all of the gift guides and see if you spot something that can knock a few loved ones off your list this year.
