but I do love the challenge of finding great bargains, however, the main motivation
for me to hit the sales is getting a jump start on next year's gifts, wrapping supplies
Make a plan of items you're looking for, but be open!
I like small boutiques for unique items and gifts.
Hit them early, and if you have time scope out their merchandise a couple days before.
Here are a few items on my list this year, besides the usual ribbon and wrap.
Faux Fur Throws
are hot items, and go quickly, I have one in the living room, but would love to find
one to warm up my white Ikea sectional in the family room.
Restoration Hardware has a nice selection, marked down to $79, but I bet
they'll be reduced further depending on stock. Still available online.
Candle $28, Diffuser $60, Room Spray $18
I'm always looking for interesting items to embellish gifts...ornaments, monograms,
picks, think of items you can use for occasions other than Christmas, too.
Don't forget the power of paint and glitter...if you don't see the perfect item.
from this...to this...
or this to this...

Did you plant paperwhites this year, if so, I'm sure you've been enjoying them for a
couple weeks, they'd be such a nice gift for a hostess or neighbor early in the season.
Be on the look out for a unique planter to use next year.
Fun gifts for children, adults, or styling your coffee table.
I love Christmas in American, Colorado Christmas, The Christmas Box.
I usually wait to buy ribbon and wrap about a week or more after Christmas when it's
marked down even further.
Have a great weekend, hope you enjoy the last of your shopping and preparations!
I'll be back on Monday and then I'm signing off until after the New Year to hang out with
my family, head to the mountains for some skiing, and get my completely unorganized
house back in order!
