You guys. Like seriously, you GUYS. I’m SO extremely stoked. Why, you ask? It’s time for the 2014 Holiday Gift Guide and Giveaway! I’ve teamed up with 24 other bloggers to bring you a full week of awesome giveaways and fabulous prizes! In addition to putting together some great gift ideas for your holiday shopping, we’ve all teamed up with stores and brands we love to giveaway some of our favorite things! You seriously don’t want to miss out. 25 days of Christmas, 25 bloggers, 25 prizes, 1 crazy awesome week. Let’s keep this party going! 🙂
Holiday shopping can be a totally intimidating nightmare. What do you get for this friend or that friend? For your mom, or your sister, who’s tastes are so ambiguous that you don’t actually know what she really likes anyway? For that co-worker you barely know but drew as part of an office Secret Santa? Never fear, friends! I’ve put together a gift guide for different kinds of ladies you may have in your life. From the fashionista to the quirky friend, I’ve got you covered for some fun and fab gift ideas!
I found most of these gifts through several of my favorite stores: Uncommon Goods, Etsy, Target, Anthropologie and Darby Smart. All of these places have great, unique and affordable gift options for everyone on your Christmas list. I was not compensated in anyway for listing these stores – I just love them to bits and know you will, too!
