And there you have it folks! Many of these gems you can buy online, which is music to the ears if you ask me! I’ve about had it with crowds and long lines these days! A few things to note here… the JamBox is probably the best gift you could give to anyone with an iPhone (aka everyone); I recently purchased Illesteva sunglasses and am absolutely obsessed, mostly because they make me look way cooler than I actually am; magazine subscriptions are a surprisingly cheap and thoughtful gift…that keeps on giving every month; I love the personalized city signs for anyone who wants to buy me a Christmas present. Andddd…well, that’s it.
Hope everyone has a wonderful and productive weekend, for those of us finishing up last-minute holiday shopping! Next year I promise to post my shopping guide earlier in the season – New Years resolution #1!
Keep it real.
