A to Z Gift Guide

Now that it is October, I think it's officially time to start planning your holiday gifts. Alright, I'll admit it...I plan Christmas early and I already have a lot of gifts figured out/bought. I just really like giving things to other people. It's a lot of fun to pick something out you think they will really love and then see or hear their reaction. I'm a bit of a sucker for it.

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do an A to Z Gift Guide. That means there will be a product, or even a whole site, that I will spotlight for every letter of the alphabet. You know, like H is for Harry Potter (except that probably won't be an actual post). I plan to start this week and keep it going until early December, so if you have any favorite products/sites (or make your own products) please get in touch and I'll see if there is a letter open for you- and I might do two or so options for the same letter too.

These are all items that I think sound great and would like to spread the word about, and hopefully some of you will find the perfect gift to give that special someone this holiday season or for future gift-giving opportunities.

If the company doesn't get back to me, I'll just do a spotlight post with my own thoughts...but I'd love to get some actual reviews (and giveaways of course) included too so it's a bit more exciting and mixes up the posts, since there will be a lot!

I made the fun button above with My Memories Suite. Please post it on your own site, linking up to this post or even the blog as a whole.

As a special for all of my awesome readers, My Memories give me my very own Share the Memories code that provides a $10 discount off the purchase of the My Memories Suite Scrapbook software and a $10 coupon for the store - $20 value!)

 To get this deal, visit the My Memories site here and use the following code:


Remember, this is only good for the My Memories Suite V3

Sounds like a cool idea! I'll try to come up with some products! (My own L is Le Creuset, since I've been building my set piece-by-piece.)

Always wonderful when someone puts such a lot of thought into a gift - I'd choose a small gift picked with me in mind over a expensive gift any time.

Melanie said...

This is such a neat idea! I look forward to seeing the companies you spotlight!

Candace said...

Oh I look forward to seeing your gift ideas!

Hilda K said...

This is such a fabulous idea! <3 I can't wait to see your gift ideas, Lauren! <3 Like you, I love buying gifts for people, but I tend to give them what I want to give to myself LOL! x) I know it's wrong, but somehow I feel like if I love it, everybody else should love it too, right? :P And that's how everyone in my family receive vintage gifts and books always. :P

Can't wait to see which company (or companies) you're going to highlight! <3

This is a fantastic idea! I am the worst at coming up with gift ideas, so I seriously need all the help I can get...

Blah, its time to start planning holiday gifts already?! I am still thinking about how I need to find some time to get Halloween decorations for my dorm room! Ha ha. A gift guide would be awesome, because I am always clueless on what to get people. I usually just stick with whats safe - like lotions from bath and body works. I think my friends would appreciate it if I changed it up a bit this year! Ha ha (:
