I wasn't going to do a gift guide this year because everyone I'm buying presents for also reads my blog. But when one of my favorite readers requested gift ideas, how could I say no? She is just too cute.
Here's a tip: When brainstorming presents for someone, I first make a list of his or her favorite things--traveling, biking, a new house, a new job, whatever. Once you've chosen a category, it's easier to think of specific gifts. Also, I'm a huge fan of pooling money--you can buy a much cooler present for your dad if your siblings contribute, too.
Ok, here we go! (I'll do a post or two each day...)
