The holidays are coming. And I’m not usually the one to tell you that. I love savoring each season for what it is. This weekend? I’m putting up pumpkins, Halloween decorations, and watching scary movies- especially my favorite Hocus Pocus. Usually, I wouldn’t be thinking of Christmas,and would actively be laughing at all the stores, etc who have out Christmas and the winter holiday goods. I wouldn’t be talking about gift guides or anything truly holiday (minus Halloween) themed for a month or so.
However, this is not a normal year. All signs point to supply chain issues and the US mail delays making the winter holidays a priority now. Meaning if you’re in any way planning on doing some of your gift shopping online it’s best to do it now to ensure that you and your loved ones get the packages on time.
So. As much as it goes against my nature, we’re gonna start chatting about the “holidays”. Yes. That includes Halloween. And the fall. But I be talking about gift guides, etc. This is where I’ll be honest with you- gift guides are always something I’ve struggled with. It’s not that I don’t like gifts- both giving and getting, but I have weird feelings about gift guides. I think it’s mainly as I think the best gifts are a bit personal , a way to say “I Love You” in a tangible form. Therefore, you have to know a bit about the person you’re buying for- which is why I may not be the best at generic gift guides. (But I’m great at gifting to people I know or people I’ve been told about- so if you’re in need of one-on-one gift help please don’t hesitate to email me!). On site to help our gift guide issue, I’ll be featuring people in my life- a little bit about them, what’s on their wish list in the hopes that it can help you find gifts for the people in your life that may be similar. I was thinking about posting these during Sudnay Chronicles, but if you have a different need or thought or ideas about how to help you with gift guides I would love to hear them!
Here’s to the holidays. Even though we’re hoping we can enjoy each stage of them, may they come easily!
Wishing us all a happy fall and amazing shoes!
