It’s not too early to get started!

Every year I have a goal: finish Christmas shopping BEFORE Thanksgiving. And I do. But then I go and buy EVEN MORE afterwards. *sigh* Overspending and the budget woes that follow and haunt you through the next year may not always be pleasant, but the shopping part certainly was! And while Einstein said somehting along the lines of repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different results is the true definition of insanity… I’m trying the goal again this year. Finish Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving, and then while everyone else is running around like chicken with their heads cut off… I can take my time wrapping gifts, adding delightful packing touches such as tags and personal greeting cards, and RELAX. Only the next month will be able to tell if I can achieve my goal or not. We shall see.

I know I can’t be the only one who prefers to be an early bird and get as much done NOW as I can. So I present to you a humble gift guide with options from me and several other fellow Etsy sellers to help you get started. Enjoy!
