Holiday 2012 Gift Guide, Part I – under $40

I’m not going to lie, I love giving presents to others. Sharing in the sheer delight when they open their gift is priceless. Although homemade gifts are always great {when you have the time… which I do not this year}, there is also great thrill to be found when finding an object that metaphorically has someone else’s name written all over it.

This being said, I always employ the same gift-buying tactic every year. I start with the smaller items, which are mainly host/acquaintance gifts… aka gifts for holiday party hosts, colleagues, neighbors, etc, and work my way up to ‘larger’ gifts for my best friends and family members. So, being part 1 in my 2012 Holiday gift buying guide, here are a dozen items that are stylish, relatively generic, and ALL under $40. {and even make for amazing little dinner party favors if you are the one entertaining this season.}
