Make Your List and Check It Twice!

I know some people have been in Christmas mode for some time now, while others are just getting into the gifting spirit. I must say that I agree with Nordstrom's philosophy of celebrating one holiday at a time...I go in some stores in October and see Christmas cards and ornaments and I feel rushed--and life already moves to fast!

Thanksgiving was just a few days ago and it was a treat for me, spending time with one of my BFF's family...who I affectionately call my "second family". I hope everyone had a great time with friends and family and are thankful for that time. Now, I am getting into the Christmas spirit and want to encourage you to make your list and check it twice!

I encourage you to check out the HoneeBee archives for fab gift ideas for anyone in your family. If you need assistance for a picky wife, distant cousin or new mother-in-law, just let me know!

Also, check out the latest magazines that are on stands. The December issues have wonderful shopping and gift tips.
HoneeBee tip: If you know someone who subscribes to a particular mag, you can bet your bottom dollar that he/she will appreciate at least one of the gift ideas shared in the magazine. You can do some extra research by purchasing the mag yourself and seeing what they have in there or (for the super sleuths) check out that person's copy of the magazine...he/she may have dogeared or circled some wish list item.

I few mags that I have come across that have some unique ideas include:

Real Simple
Some gift ideas from the mag: Infused vodka, chocolate nut bark, monogrammed journal

Town & Country
Some gift ideas from the mag: Johnathan Adler Pop rocks glasses, Harper's Bazaar: Fabulous at Every Age book, DVF leather and rubber flip flops.

PS: Even if you do not celebrate Christmas, there are still great deals and gift ideas out there.
