Good holiday season morning, readers! What kind of shopper are you? Are you a tunnel-visioned, perfect-present-for-the-perfect-person kind of shopper? Or are you more of a one-for-them, one-for-me kind. Since I fall distinctly in the category of the latter, I decided that it would be so fun to get a little something for yourself and receive a little something for a friend!
