Christmas Edition: What I'm giving

I absolutely love shopping and giving gifts. It's just so rewarding to shop for something that you know your friends or family will adore and I love watching them open it! This year, I did the majority of my shopping online because I just got very tired of the crowds and long lines. It didn't take away from the "the thrill of the hunt" though. 

Here's a few things I'm giving this year...
Keel's Simple Diary for my sister-in-law. She journals every day, so I thought this would be a fun gift. It gives you questions, fill in the blank and multiple choice, so it's a nice change from just a blank journal. I found it at Anthropologie.
Also for my sister-in-law (she's the easiest person to shop for!), I found this quirky owl ring on Etsy. I love the eyes and how big and chunky the ring is. She's into unique jewelry and I can totally see her wearing it. 

My mom is getting my dad a Wii console, so we got him a bunch of games for it. He loves playing ours everytime he comes over, so I know he will love it. 

Real Simple magazine subscriptions for both mine and J's mom. I got these online from Amazon on Black Friday and a years subscription was $5!! I love giving magazine subscriptions for a gift because then the person will think of you every time a new issue comes in the mail. Plus, Real Simple magazine is such a great magazine (I sort of wish I had bought one for myself now!)
My mom collects the Spode Christmas Tree pattern, so I got her the Bread Basket. The size and handles would make it perfect for a lot of different things though, not just bread. I actually found this on Amazon as well, for a really great price and free shipping!

What are you giving this year? Do you brave the crowds to do your shopping at the mall or online in your pjs?

Fabulous gifts for this season! My mom gives me Real simple every year and I love it - a monthly gift of putting my feet up and reading it cover to cover!

I ordered a bunch of magazines from Amazon on black Friday!
I am not a crowd girl! I would rather shop a few days before Christmas in the morning.. usually still great deals!

Wow!!! Great finds! I did all of my shopping online as well, I can't handle the crowds. Great find on Etsy, too :)

p.s. I'm retired and my funds are limited - I haven't had a journal in two years.
