Chanuka Gift Guide 2013 Part 1: For The Women

Donuts, latkes, time spent with family, these are all things I am looking forward to this year when Chanuka arrives. We plan to have a house warming party in our home as well over the holiday because we've now lived here for about a month or so and what better time is there to bring family and friends together for a Chanuka party? I plan to cook enough to feed a lot of people and set the dining room and living room area of my house up for the party with centerpieces and what not. We'll see what I have time for. It's already been taking some time to organize it all which includes inviting people and planning my menu. There is one thing I have still not done and that is GIFTS. I'm always a little late on it anyways but it really kind of crept up on me again this year. In my defense it does fall out earlier on the calendar this year then usual.

 If you don't have gifts for some of your beloved family and friends yet like me, have no fear. I have you covered as usual with my yearly gift guide. Perhaps it will help you choose something that works for your budget and is just what that special person was wishing for. This is going to be a three part gift guide as usual with one for the men and children coming up later on in the week. Part one of the gift guides is for the females in your life wether that be your mom, sister, aunt, cousin, niece, grandma, daughter or really close friend. I'm seperating it into categories of interest like beauty, fashion, cooking etc to suit all sorts of tastes and there will be items from every price bracket too so there will be something to suit every budget as well. Keep in mind that it's not too important how big or small your gift is because it is from you and that on it's own is thoughtful enough. To me, the gift of kindness and friendship is what I appreciate most (not to say I don't like gifts like any other normal women)

On to the gift guide, don't see what you were looking for here? Feel free to shoot me a comment or message and I would be happy to help you out in finding that perfect gift. Each product is linked, so just give it a click if you think it's something you'd like to add to your holiday shopping list.
