Très Ashley Gift Guide 2011

 

The holidays are here and it’s time to go shopping. I’ve got some ideas for everyone on your list that I think you’ll like. To me a personalized gift is the most thoughtful… something with a hand-embroidered initial or a photo… When in doubt, make it personal. Consider handmade gifts from etsy.com or fab.com and always try to give something you know they would like. For the person who has everything, give the gift of an experience…tickets to a show, a destination or to try something they’ve always dreamed of. For men, cloud9living.com can satisfy their dream to drive a race car or fly an airplane. There’s personality in personal shopping. I’m sure you feel the same way I do…I absolutely love finding the perfect gift!
