I'm happy to announce that I've completed most of my holiday shopping, which is to say I've purchased at least one goodie for everyone on my list. However, there are still a couple loose ends I need to tie up, which I will most likely accomplish by shopping small local boutiques. Not only do I feel like I will be supporting the local economy, I also feel like I'll be finding one-of-a-kind gifts that don't carry obvious pricetags! Everyone knows how much you paid for those Old Navy jingle jammies (as seen on TV), but will they know how much you spent on a limited edition Tsumori Chisato lip gloss set or a set of super sweet enamel bangles from Dylan's Candy Bar? Didn't think so.
If you're still finishing up your holiday shopping, consider hitting up your neighborhood boutiques. Need inspiration? For a great list of holiday gifts under $50, check out this post by my friends at Stylehive.com. Warning: You might end up buying something from this stylish list for yourself.
