Dare to Compare: The Gift Guide
Its November which means I can officially talk about the Holidays and gift giving and everything that comes with it! I’m such a sucker for the Holiday Season and one month just isn’t enough. Most people (I used to be one of these people) get so frustrated when they see department stores setting up Christmas displays and playing Holiday music, but it makes me happy so why fight it. It doesn’t mean I’m skipping over Thanksgiving, I just consider Thanksgiving part of the Holiday Season!

Being able to give my loved ones gifts is truly my favorite part of the Holidays. I’m hands down someone who enjoys giving rather than receiving. Just seeing someone’s face when they open a gift that you picked out just for them makes all the trouble worth it.

This is just one of the many Gift Guides I’m sure I’ll be posting this Holiday Season. I hope I can help you make the search for that “perfect” gift for someone on your list a little easier. All of these Dare to Compare Gifts are extremely affordable & knowing the price tag isn’t an issue makes them a no brainer.

Why spend more when you don’t have to?
