Christmas Crunch Time

December 23, 2010

Whoever coined the phrase, “the early bird gets the worm” obviously never went last minute holiday shopping. While some like knowing that they have each and every gift purchased and wrapped for their loved ones weeks in advance, I like the rush you get when the pressure is on… Okay, okay, who am I kidding? Honestly… I procrastinated this year. A lot. BUT I have to say that I had one of the most enjoyable shopping experiences last night. Better deals than Black Friday (I’m talking entire stores on sale), little holiday traffic, and a game plan all made for an ever so delightful shopping trip. While I would love to share with you my finds, I don’t want any secrets to slip, but here’s a bit of advice: don’t panic if your behind. In fact, you’re in great condition! Stores like J. Crew and Eddie Bauer both have their entire store 30% off, Express 40-50% select items, and Gap up to 40% off. (These stores may or may not have been visited… if you catch my drift.) So good luck, grab some coffee, and get going!!

I’ve grown up in a house full of boys,and for some time now I’ve had a difficult time buying what they would like, rather than what I like for them, but this year was a breeze! If you’re still looking for gift ideas for the guy in your life, whether he be a friend, fiance, husband, or brother, here are a few more!

    This is a great list! Boys can be so hard to shop for but I agree that you can’t go wrong with cozy sweaters, cologne, and anything music-related!

    I’m excited to have found another Southern blogger! 🙂 Happy holidays from Texas!
