Christmas Shopping

It’s that time of year again and the Christmas shopping madness is in full effect.  I wanted to share some of my favorite gift giving ideas and a few favorite companies that are giving back when you make a purchase from them.

Etsy

Some of my favorite gifts I have given have come from Etsy.  The site features handmade items. My absolute favorite is the memory bears I purchased from Paula’s Bears.  Paula did a great job transforming my late fathers t-shirts into three bears to keep in his memory and I could not have been happier with my purchase.
