yes, it is unusual for fb to do gift guides but this year i've set myself and my husband on a very tight budget for holiday spending, therefore i've been seeking out some top notch items for gift giving under $30.00 the best part is that each one is unique in it's own way, allowing for a more exciting giving experience. So as we all know times are tuff and most of us get swallowed up by all the materialistic advantages of the holidays and in the end find us broke or worse, in debt come january. so i wanted to share a more thoughtful approach to gift giving, and show that things don't have to cost a fortune to give a great impression! emphasize the things that mean more like, being handmade, limited edition, or sustainable...things like this are priceless qualities and don't necessarily cost a boat load! here are my picks for this week...
