one for me, two for you {holiday gift guide}

To be perfectly honest, I'm a last-minute shopper. Guilty as charged. No matter how good my intentions are each year to "start earlier" and check off my list at the beginning of December, I usually still find myself at the 11th hour, running around like mad. And if we're being even more honest, I kind of like it. There's something about the dashing around, staying up late to wrap while blasting Christmas music that really pumps my holiday spirits into overdrive. Dizzying, yes. But oh so worth it! 

Luckily, when it comes to shopping for my friends, I've developed a little trick (albeit a selfish one) over the years. Since most of my girlfriends share my same affinity for pretty oddities, delicate jewelry and coffee table book fodder, my wish list often mirrors their wish list. I just have to make sure I stick to my golden ratio each time -- one for me, two for someone else!

Stayed tuned -- I'll be sharing more gift guides over the next couple of weeks.
