Hello folks of the Internet,
Are you in a festive mood yet? I'm a very Christmassy person but I only fully experience the spirit of Christmas once December kicks in and the tree is up. I know people in the States start the festivities a little sooner because of Thanksgiving and frankly, I'm a little jealous.
It's truly the most wonderful time of the year. There's such a positive aura surrounding everything and anything Christmas-related that I just want to bask in all of it. The most important thing though is the act of giving and caring. It's not just about religion, it's a mindset. Christmas is the time to be kind (well to be honest, any time is the time to be kind). It's the time to be a little more thoughtful and a little less selfish. Everyone can benefit from this mentality and outlook, no one can lose.
Giving and receiving gifts is a very special tradition in my family. We have a whole ritual we've held on to for years and that I look forward to every December. The buying process on the other hand can become a little stressful. Sometimes you just get stuck, it happens to all of us. So yet again, Internet comes to the rescue.
In this year's gift guide I decided to do little separate assortments that fit each style, depending who you're shopping for. Instead of grouping everyone together with the simple categorization being "for him" and "for her" I wanted to try to cater to different styles and tastes.
