I truly enjoy Christmas shopping. There I said it. I put a lot (maybe too much) of thought and effort into finding the perfect gifts for the fabulous people in my life. However, I know a lot of people who HATE shopping during this time. T'inquiète pas mes amis, I'll help ya out. The key is to think about what you would actually LOVE to receive and then tweak it to fit the personality and style of the person you're buying for.
Here is a little guide to get you started. Most of these gifts can be bought while wearing no pants and holding a nice glass of Bordeaux (aka ONLINE) – I can never find what I am looking for in a store. X
