2019 Holiday Gift Guide for Women & Girls

Have you started holiday shopping yet? My intention is always to get my shopping done early so I have plenty of time to wrap and do fun things close to Christmas but despite my best efforts, I am usually frantically finishing the wrapping on Christmas Eve! With that being said, we’re launching our first holiday gift guide, this one for the women in your life (so this may or may not include the things we’re hoping for too!). We’ve included ideas in all price ranges for women and girls so we can all get a jump start on our gifts. Here’s to being done early this year!
