Happy Thanksgiving Week, Friends!
This week through Christmas is one of my absolute favorite times of the year. Everyone seems to be posting gift guides now, or will be coming up with them shortly. My birthday is the day after Thanksgiving so for the past couple of years I’ve asked, instead of gifts, just to have the freedom to go out shopping by myself (far more relaxing than shopping with this kids) and score some fun deals. Black Friday is my favorite shopping day of the year because I get to shop at my dream time (5am ish) and now that all stores seem to be opening Thanksgiving night I can shop in relative peace then because all the aggressive shoppers have already gone home to bed.
In this gift guide I’ve included some pieces we have, or as close to what we have as possible, or some that I really have my eye on for myself or gifts for Christmas. Hopefully you can find something that is special or useful or both. Last year I got my grandmother a Coach clutch on Black Friday (it was a steal!) and she just told me the other day she uses it all the time. I popped the Kate Spade clutch in there thinking of my Gram’s comment. 🙂
