Need to find the perfect gift for um, everyone? Here are my 25 Awesome Gifts for Everyone 2017
Is anyone else in a final countdown to the kids finishing school with a 1/2 day this Friday? That is really, really soon guys. Really soon. I’d say my Christmas shopping is about 60% done, but with a few VIPs unaccounted for, namely my very deserving husband who loves Christmas gifts more than anyone I know. Luckily, after I finish this post, Im going to head over to Jaime’s 11 Awesome Gifts For Guys 2017 post and pick some winners. Since Jaime did the heavy lifting for me, I thought it only fair that I pull together some gift ideas for everyone else. This post will focus on gifts for the womenz and childrenz. Namely, things I have and love, things I really, really want and things my kids have been into in 2017.
