The Annual Gift Guide

Usually by this point in the year, I am well organized, Christmas cards are ready to go, I've got a good jump on the gifts. Not this year. I am overwhelmed and a disaster. So our gift guide comes at just the right time, at least for me. We have included some old favorites and some new finds, all of which will make Father Christmas proud.
