We all know shopping is therapeutic. For me it has a calming effect on mind and body. Sure it's nice to shop for myself but shopping for a gift is even better. We all know it's better to give than receive. The thrill of hunting for and finding just the right item for a friend or relative adds to the excitement. My favorite go to gift is very often a book. Food is a close second. I don't have to worry about size or style when I gift these.
What's your favorite gift to give?

Are you shopping today - online or out there with the crowds?



Need a gift suggestion? How about a book for your favorite chocolate lover (no calories). You can even gift it to someone with a kindle.

  6. I like to give purses for women and wallets for men. Women love to switch out their purses and men's wallets get so ragged and they seem to stall on getting them so I use that as my favorite gifts to give.

  10. I hate shopping but I do it when nexessary. Now I do most of my shopping on the internet. My fav gift to give? Something that means something. I hate buying gifts just for the mere act of buying.

  18. I'm not a Black Friday shopper. I don't believe that shopping should ever be a full contact sport. I spend the day baking cookies with my kiddos instead.

  19. I don't do Black Friday -- the week before Thanksgiving usually marks the LAST time I deal with retail until after the New Year! I shop online or do gift cards.

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  26. My favorite gift to give is somthing homemade. Wheter I sew something, make an ornament or make some cany and cookies - it is gifving of myself. I can't do Black Friday shopping (unless it's online) - I don't have the patience or the stamina for the lines and the crowds. Happy Holidays and thank you for the opportunity to win some great prizes. cfierstein@cox.net

  28. NO holiday shopping today for me. I will admit to a very brief stop at a retailer for some new pillows. It was crowded, noisy, and irritating and I remember why I do not participate in these reindeer games! Starbucks sounds amazing right now! Thanks so much for being a part of the hop and for relieving my boredom on this cold rainy day.

    Happy Holidays,
