2015 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! There’s Christmas music playing everywhere you go, holiday parties with gorgeous dresses, spiked egg nog, mistletoe (wink wink), twinkly lights and first snowfalls. But with all of the joyful parts of Christmas, finding the perfect present can sometimes be more stressful than fun.

So I’ve put together a holiday gift guide to help you shop. And to make things even less stressy, I’ve personally sampled every item on this list, so you can trust the quality of the items that you buy. Plus many of these products are made by small businesses, so you’re supporting entrepreneurs while you browse. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Except it does, because I’m even doing a giveaway of one of the items on this list! You can find more information below.

Now relax, pour yourself a glass of champagne, and get ready to finish your Christmas shopping!
