It’s that time of year again! I wanted to put together a Holiday Gift Guide before mid-November, since there are a lot of upcoming sales. Now, please keep in mind that I’m a bit eclectic. Regardless, here are my suggestions!

1. Amazon Gift Card – Any $ Amount
You can choose any amount you like, which is nice. Giving an Amazon gift card allows people to purchase anything from books for their Kindle to makeup to games to gadgets for the house. Every time I get them, they go towards books for my kindle. I think they’re fantastic.


2. A Hand Blender – $18.40
This may seem like an odd choice, but it’s fantastic for whipping guacamole or mashed potatoes. It’s got a plastic part that protects the blade and keeps stuff from splattering all over you. In my opinion, it’s better than using a hand masher or another type of blender.


3. Canon PowerShot SD1200IS Camera – $204.94
This is the newer version of my camera that I use for my blog. It comes in a vast array of colors (blue, dark grey, green, orange, light grey and hot pink). It’s got fantastic features. This is what I plan to upgrade to whenever I can, in hot pink, of course!

4. Gift Cards to Indie Merchants – Any $ Amount
I believe almost all of my favorite Indie Merchants have gift certificates available. Alternately, I think you can send a gift via PayPal. You can see reviews I’ve written about Indie Companies and products here. You can see places I shop here. You can see Creative Companies here. You really can get any sort of nice makeup, lipstick, skincare products, bath and body products and put together fantastic personalized kits for people from Indie merchants. Additionally, I’m pretty sure several of them will have Holiday kits, too!


5. Retro Plush Toys – $10 to $25
I found this store because they have Dragon Warrior slimes! They’re awesome! They also have Tails from Sonic the Hedgehog, and Ninjas!


6. Clarisonic Mia – $149
I STILL love my Clarisonic Mia. Ray loves it too. It gets used every day on my face. I think it’s fantastic. You can read my review about it here.

7. ecoTools Makeup Brushes – $6 to $15
If you want to give the gift of vegan, sustainable quality brushes, ecoTools is the way to go.

8. Custom Jewelry from WhimsyBeading – $20 & Up
You can get a variety of gorgeous pieces of custom jewelry from WhimsyBeading, which will make for a beautiful gift.


9. Amazon Kindle 3G – $189
While I have the Kindle 2, the 3G is the newest version. It’s really a cool product. I love being able to carry hundreds of books with me in a slim design.


10. Dreamery Studio – $8.50
The vintage art from this shop is printed on old book pages. It’s a neat concept.

If I get enough requests or if you need other types of suggestions, I may do a Holiday Gift Guide, part 2.
