Who’s ready for Christmas? I for one am all about some last-minute gift ideas so I’m sharing these lists from before Thanksgiving. Here you go: Gift Guides Galore to help you get ready for Christmas.

Gift guides galore from our family to yours

In this podcast we talked about how to weave joy into giving. Think about how wonderful it is that we get to think about the people we love and make or purchase gifts they will love. It’s a beautiful thing that sometimes gets lost in the “to-dos” of the season.

I challenge us all to find more joy in our gift-giving this year. The chaos and the lists are sometimes what we will miss the most. Or amI just telling myself that??

Ha! Without further ado, here are the lists!

Happy shopping!
