WHOA! Thanksgiving is already behind us, and we’re smack dab in the thick of holiday shopping season. Where is this year going??
This season has flown by for me, maybe because of the whole pregnancy thing – the weeks just seem to go so much faster. And here we are, getting ready to celebrate the holidays and thinking of all the things we want to buy for
ourselves our family and friends. I’m hoping to keep holiday shopping as low-maintenance this year as possible.
You too? High fives!
This holiday gift guide pulls together a few of my favorite things (and several I’m hoping to try *wink wink Kristian*) – all intended to help you stay on top of the busy-ness in your life, or to help you wind down from it and find a few moments of zen. All from Amazon, because Prime is magic. Holiday shopping online is as easy as (1) click, (2) open the door for delivery. No crammed parking lots. No lines.
