Ever year I make the same pledges to myself at the holiday time: Get started early and take time to find those unique gifts that deliver more authentic oohs and aahs than presents from a last-minute run to the mall.

And every year it’s the same story. I am one of “those” people who is online or out at the stores right before the start of Hanukkah or on Christmas Eve, feeling desperate to find something before the clock runs out.

Sound familiar?

Well, since we are in this together, how about we try for a different holiday gift-buying experience this year?

Don’t know what to get the busy parents who seem to have everything? Stumped on gifts for your little ones, or for the tween or teen in your life who you want to surprise as opposed to delivering every single item on their wish list?

I have many great suggestions– from toys, clothing, even a gift certificate for a home cleaning service (who wouldn’t want that around the holidays!)

So click around, and see what moves you, and be proud or yourself for doing at least one thing differently this year– starting to think about gifts earlier than you usually do!

Note: You can also request gift wrapping and a personal gift message at check time of check-out.
