Hi there. Welcome back to the Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide by yours truly. This is a labor of love, fueled by my gut instinct to gather ALL THE THINGS in one place, my foolish desire to do it on a self-imposed deadline — all culminating in me falling asleep late at night while creating collages in my woefully inadequate and antiquated version of Photoshop Elements (it’s really time I upgrade to the Creative Cloud).
You can’t say I’m not dedicated!
We started with with the $50 gift guide and the $40 gift guide, and each day we’re making our way down to the $5 gift guide, which will be filled with awesome stocking stuffers (some might say that’s the best part).
A quick word on the process
1. This guide includes gifts in the $21-$30 range. You might find a bargain or two tucked inside because it is the holiday season and prices fluctuate faster than you can say GIFTCARD PLEASE.
2. You’ll notice I break it down “She,” “He” and “Wee.” It’s suggestion, not definition. I do not believe in gender stereotyping or ageism or whatnot. I pretty much want everything on this list. Even the videogame controller illustrations. Especially the Aladdin Blu-ray.
I had such a crush on Aladdin. ♫ Make way for Prince Ali! ♫
Are you ready? Get your mice set. And gooooooo clicking.
