Holiday Gift Guide 2012

I absolutely love it when my favorite bloggers put up a list of their Holiday gift suggestions! Digital window shopping is much more fun than fighting my way through a sea of not-so-merry shoppers. After all, reports of Black Friday’s death and injury toll were enough to scare even the Grinch away from  department stores!

So pour yourself a little mug of eggnog, put on your slippers, and click click click away little elf!
