A Gift Guide For The Hard To Buy For Friend


Not a year goes by that I don’t hear from someone in my family,
"You are so hard to buy for!"
As a shopper and lover of all things color all I have to say is, "REALLY???!"


I really believe the same rings true for most 20/30 somethings living in the a metropolitan area. Why are we so hard to buy for? Not anymore!
This year I have set out to make a spectacular gift guide with just that person in mind. I am here to divulge all of my favorite things for the "hard-to-buy-for" person in your life. A.K.A usually me and possibly you too!

Maybe they are creative, maybe they are all business, maybe it's your sister or your Mom, or the person from your office who you got in Secret Santa that you barely know -but know they have style! I am going to make it easy for you this year.

Some of these products I already have and absolutely love and some are on my wish list (Hint! Hint!). I had a hard time narrowing this list down and could have made it double the size. Seriously, I just want to buy it all for myself,  but that wouldn't be good for my wallet.

So, feel free to bookmark this page or send it to "that someone” to give them a not-so-subtle hint!
