Have you seen the YouTube video of the stampede at a Target on Black Friday? Neither have I… I read about it, but can’t bring myself to view an episode of such disgusting consumer behavior. You know how much I love a good deal, but the thought of running over another human being in a Target to save $20 on a Blu-Ray player makes me feel ill. Consumerism at it’s worst.
That being said, this is the season for gifting. I’ve put together a few “gift guides” of products and ideas that I think you’ll love in all price ranges– some of which you can make on your own and others a click or two away from being purchased online. No company is paying me for this, I just had a few ideas I thought I’d share if you are stuck on what to get or make this season.
This year more than ever I think people are looking for less consumerism and more heartfelt tokens for gifts. At least that’s my view through my lemon-colored glasses. My gift guides will be heavy on the handmade and only promote things I’ve used or given myself. As always, if you have ideas to share I hope you’ll let me know so I can feature your idea!
Look for these guides over the next few weeks to pop up here and there. Here we go… Ready, Set, GIFT!
