Christmas gift shopping has always been a struggle for me. First, figuring out if I have all the gifts for everyone on my Christmas shopping list. Next, how to decide that I have enough gifts and trying to stay on budget. Can you relate? I needed to have a Christmas gift guide to help me stay on track with my Christmas shopping, so that I could rest easy knowing that I had completed my shopping and stayed on my gift shopping budget.
Christmas Gift Guide
Weeks after Christmas last year It became apparent that I had over shopped when I could not get everyone to put away their overabundance of gifts and that needed to change. Way too much of a good thing! The overage of gifts became a burden to the recipient not to mention a waste of money. You can easily use the Christmas gift guide to make sure you have your wish list filled and to find that stopping point in the seemingly endless gift shopping.
The above Rustic Farmhouse Christmas gift tags were from an earlier post see that one HERE.

Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate is what I love. I think it is a universal gift, and why not give gourmet toffee? While I was in beautiful Laurel, Mississippi, at the beginning of December, I was delighted to meet a young couple who have taken a leap of faith and started a gourmet toffee business. Lauren (wife) is the chef and Ben (husband) is the businessman. They are a warm, polite and hardworking couple. Jones Toffee Co. is their gourmet toffee company.
