It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, ev’rywhere you go; Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again with candy canes and silver lanes aglow! This year, I’ve started my gifting early, picking up items here and there, storing them in our home like a little chipmunk getting ready for hibernation. I want to be ready, because our baby is due any day now and I don’t think shopping will be on my mind when she arrives!
As I was browsing for loved ones, I created a holiday gift guide including a few of my favorite items from a few of my favorite Etsy shops; all of which make wonderful presents for Christmas! This list leans towards gifting to your girlfriends, sisters, mothers and grand-mothers…full of precious things that I’m sure they would love to receive. Take your time to look and visit each of these great shops on Etsy to see their full selection!
Oh! And the best part…
A special gift to you, my dear readers!! We are hosting a collaborative giveaway (The Best of this Life and all of these wonderful shops) – giving away (1) of each of the gifts you see listed here! That’s right…that’s 10 beautiful gifts. The only question is…will you keep them all for you or spread the joy? Merry Christmas Friends! xx
