Preparing this gift guide is something I look forward to each holiday season. Not only do I love combing through the Internet to curate this list for you to use, but I also get quite a bit of my own shopping done (okay, I may buy a few things for myself too).

This list of gifts features all kinds of price points and all kinds of interests. I hope it is inspiring for you!
