Okay, so while I'm nailing down some more details, I wanted to put the word out (so we can all start spreading the word...or something) that we'll start our "Holiday Gift Guide" on Monday, November 8th.
I've decided to run it through the last Monday before Christmas...for all of you last minute shoppers!
I'm looking for a catchy name...I was thinking something like "HollyBlog Hop" or, maybe we should just stick with "Holiday Gift Guide"...self-explanatory, no frills, nice and simple.
I'm open to hearing themes...here's what I've got:
1. Children's Books-Hidden Gems
2. Gifts for the "Mature Man" in your life (i.e dads and grandpas!)
3. Handmade/Homemade/Esty Gifts (tutorials welcome! It's always nice to find a way to make a thoughtful, frugal gift!)
4. Favorite Children's Toys
5. Gifts for Grandmas
6. Tween and Teen Gift Ideas
8. Last minute steals?
With the themes, what I'm hoping for, are actual items YOU own or have purchased for someone (with success!!). So, what we'll end up with are real, certifiable, fabulous gifts for our loved ones! If you have a fabulous IDEA, go ahead and tell us about it, but for the most part, I'd like tried and true!
So, the idea will be to write a post (as short or as long as you'd like...make it easy, make it fun, enjoy this!!) about your gift idea and then link it up!
And, er...obviously, I'm in need of a couple of themes...any ideas? Do you like the "Last Minute Steals"? Should we separate the handmade/homemade theme out? How 'bout a separate "bakeable gifts"??
(I have too many thoughts running through my head!!)
Okay...I think that's the nuts and bolts of our gift guide! If you would, will you spread the word? When we decide on a name, I'll make up a little button for you to use in your posts!!
I figure, the more people that join in, the better our options for finding some great gifts!
