My Gift Guide Revealed

By Amitha Verma

I’m facing a stressful problem, as I’m sure you are too!

Since Thanksgiving, I’ve been hoping from social event to social event.

And this is a super busy time at work for us.

So it leaves me very little time to do something I cherish dearly.

Finding special and unique gifts for family friends.

From hostess gifts, to white elephant gifts, secret santa and family gifts – I’m starting to feel the pressure.

So this past weekend, the rainy weather gave me the perfect opportunity to stay in and brainstorm unique and meaningful gift ideas.

So I’ve put together a complete list of all the holiday and hostess gifts that I brainstormed.

Holiday Inspired Decor

‘Tis the season! This is the perfect time to gift a loved one something to spread the holiday cheer.

I adore these gorgeous embroidered holiday linens and recently just received one as a gift myself. It something I would not have done for myself, and thus a real treat!
