Wow, I feel like December just started and already Christmas is a week away!
I have a confession.
I hate shopping for Christmas presents.
Unless the stars all align and I manage to find that perfect gift for someone during the year it invariably comes down to a week or so before Christmas when I realize that I haven’t bought anyone anything and I am then forced to frantically search the internet for something ANYTHING that might be appropriate. This leads me to throwing away a lot of money on presents that are mediocre at best and then being stressed out like crazy about why I am not a better gift giver.
The whole thing kinda makes me hate Christmas a little. Which is so very, very sad.
This is the happiest time of the year! (so they tell me) but let’s be honest, especially this year I’m pregnant and tired and I just want someone to tell me what to buy. If I can get it all in one trip on my way to FedEx to ship it even better.
Thankfully R. Riveter made a whole bunch of handy little gift guides which I am sharing here.
