This season is FULL of gift guides….

I’m no hater.  When a Website or fellow blog starts posting gift guides during this, the most wonderful time of year, I’m all for it.  There are some great ideas and I’m happy to share (and hype) them.  I’ll do direct links so check them out.

First up, the LoDown, a lifestyle site created by Lauren “Lo” Bosworth of Laguna Beach and The Hills fame. But this renaissance woman has branched out and developed her own e-space (in addition to becoming a trained chef).

What drew me to the site was her imagery (photo below from  But what kept me was the ideas.

TheLoDown - Car Full of Gifts

Here are some of my favorites…

The Gift Guide for Beauty Junkies has some cute, and very well packaged ideas for those who love all things to do with makeup and skincare.

The Gift Guide for Kids includes some awesome gift ideas (so awesome I wish I had thought of them).  These gifts will speak to the kid in you.  In fact they speak to the auntie inside of me who loves nothing better than spoiling the kids in my life.

The Gift Guide for Pets is unusual and genius.  I know quite a few pet parents who would love these ideas.

The Under $25 Gift Guide is ideal for the party goer who loves nothing better than to participate in office round robins and sorority gift exchanges.

Be Inspired.  I am.
