Christmas Gift Guide 2016

3 Comments

YAAAAS! Christmas is Slowly but SURELY Coming! And there are two types of people, you know how it is! LOL I'm definitely the one who gets super excited about the Holidays way before the Halloween or Thanksgiving! In fact, I'm already playing Mariah Carey Holiday radio on Pandora these days... You might think I'm crazy, but let me tell you... I have to be sending all Xmas gifts to my family in Czech republic at the beginning of November, so they receive them in time! And I'll rather be prepared a little earlier! It kind of became a pre-holiday tradition here on my blog, to put together list of a couple of gift ideas for everyone on your list! As always, I tried to pick all variety of gifts, for those on a budget and those who saved all year to give nice gifts (ok, hands down)! I really hope you will find this post helpful and that you'll get into the right Christmassy mood together with me! ♥
