I want to offer my sincerest apologies for the minor delay in the Holiday Gift Guide posts.

Lame, but true excuse:

You see, there was a Tropical Depression Ida last week.  I don’t know what it is, but every time we get large buckets of rain for long periods of time, our modem has “issues”.

My husband’s diagnosis: “the modem is fried”

Thank goodness it’s a rental via Comcast.  We’re exchanging it today.

Meanwhile, I hauled a sleepy little guy to a place with wireless internet so I could knock out a few quick reviews/giveaways for the Holiday Gift Guide.

I promised you daily goodies, and I will deliver, however, some of them may get all crammed up into a couple of days.

Thanks for your patience.  We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming shortly.

Holiday Gift Guide 2009

TwB Holiday Gift GuideIt’s that time of year again…when we start thinking about giving and sharing with those we love.  The holidays are about giving to others, creating special memories with loved ones, and rejoicing in the birth of the Light of the World–the greatest GIFT of them all.

In the following week, I’ll share with you my top gift giving ideas from homemade to fun finds.

  • I personally reviewed and hand-picked every item included in the Holiday Gift Guide.
  • Most of the daily featured product posts will also include a giveaway to help you get started on your holiday shopping list without spending a single cent.  How’s that for being budget-conscious?

Starting tomorrow until Tuesday, November 24th, the Holiday Gift Guide will feature daily posts of gift ideas for all members of the family.  The gift guide posts will replace regularly scheduled columns Tuesday Travels and Health Happy Round-Up.  Once the gift guide posts published, you can find links to all of them culminated and organized here, on this post.

To enter the giveaways, visit each post, and leave a relevant comment.
