I think I might love giving gifts more than receiving them. There's just something about finding the perfect thing for that particular person and presenting it in a pretty package. It makes me happy. Sometimes, I do need a little help with the search, and I'm so grateful for all the gift guides out there. Thanks to them, I've gotten a head start on my Christmas shopping.
Here's a list of gift guides by friends and favorites. Feel free to add yours in the comments.
