HOLIDAY WISH LIST: Fun Finds Under $50


I'd really love to be him!

I’d really love to be him!

I LOVE Holidays! I LOVE giving Presents. In the search for special for the “Specials” in my life, I feel like I’m searching for a beautiful shell on the beach that no one else has discovered. Yep, finding the perfect present is a challenge, but it’s a fun one. Try to listen to what people say when they discuss things they like, it’ll make things a lot easier. (Dr. A craves white chocolate, Mira smells like roses, my Dad’s really into cool socks.)  I love wrapping presents in fun creative ways (my first job ever was wrapping presents in high school at a drugstore in Brentwood, and I’ve been good at it ever since.)

But the paying part. Ugh! Everyone hates that. Ebay sales, residuals and being a temporary Temp help. But when that credit card bill arrives in January it just adds to the pressure of Pilot Season, reminding me:

You’ve GOTTA book a job, Evie!

So this year I’m baking presents, making presents, and recycling bags/boxes as much as I can. I have to buy few gifts though, so I’ve been searching the net for fun finds.
