This gift guide is unabashedly and rather obviously a list of things I would like to find under my own Christmas tree. If someone you love loves my site, but you don’t know what to give them for the holidays … hopefully this will help you. If you’re like me and have to give very overt hints to your partner on gifts you would like, I welcome you to share this post daily on their Facebook page!
