If you haven’t gotten your gifts squared away yet, you’re in trouble. Unless you live by a mall and you like running around like reindeer before they met Rudolph.
I have a pile of cardboard boxes that are waiting to be wrapped so I’d say I’m in pretty good shape. My parents just decided where they were going to spend Christmas so their presents will be more like New Year’s presents (sorry mom and dad, same goes for the cards, too).
But this is a gift guide and I have a couple more days to wow you with websites so here we go.
Hipcycle, where have you been all my life? I really wish I could come up with something clever like this, but I’m thankful someone else did. You want frames? They have them. You want pots for your garden? They have those too. Or how about a Mentos wrapper trash bin? You have to see it to believe it. I found some pretty neat things on this website and let’s just say Hipcycle is tucked away in a safe place in my head for future gift-giving occasions.
My charity today is the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. A friend of mine from New York, TinkerBell (who just started her own floral company, check it out at B. Floral), was really involved with this organization and she invited me to several events to raise money for them. I would be remiss to not list them in my gift/giving countdown. Donate to OCRF here.
