Let the 2012 Holiday Season Begin

The holiday season is quickly approaching.  Can you believe it?!  Halloween came and went and now we have Thanksgiving just around the corner.  That means the holiday of gift giving will be here before we know it.  So, to kick off the holiday season and to get into the spirit of things I thought I would share some of my favorite gift options I found in the IHOD Holiday Gift Guide 2012.  This is a digital gift guide that was kindly put together by Anna of the blog In Honor of Design

 In Honor of Design

This lovely guide is filled with affordable gift options and exclusive discount codes.  It also has a number of handmade gift ideas and recipes from a creative bunch of bloggers.  Anna did all the work and she even links to the appropriate sites.  You just have to click on the item | photo image and it brings you to the actual site that sells it.  How convenient and awesome is that?!  Here are just a few of my favorites.

And a big thank you to Anna.  She said by putting this holiday guide together it was her way of giving back to the handmade community, one that she once was a part of and to also support small business America.  Isn't she sweet?  I hope by passing this along it makes your holiday shopping more enjoyable.  I know it makes mine a whole lot easier :)  It also introduced me to a few more new shops and sources I wasn't yet aware of.  Yipee!

Happy Holidays...Happy Shopping...Happy Giving!
