It is almost that time of year again ladies + gents!

This year I have been thinking a TON about what to get, and most importantly, WHERE to get it!

What is "it" you ask?  THE perfect gift, for the best friend, mom, sister, boyfriend, heck even co-worker! SO I have compiled a list of places I know I will be shopping at this year to find those PERFECT gifts for those special loves in your life!
