Handpicked Gift Ideas for CyberMonday and a Giveaway!

Hey there, everyone! Are you ready for Black Friday? I, for one, have never participated. Are the deals really that great? I guess I care more about avoiding crowds, so I'm all about Cyber-Monday. I like the hustle, bustle, "it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" feeling, but only when I can just enjoy a cup of coffee and leisurely stroll...that feeling is lost completely if I have to race from store to store. So anyway, I'm a big fan of doing my Christmas shopping online. 'Nuf said.

Before I share my Handpicked gift ideas, I'd like to offer you (my first) giveaway! Have you heard the latest in beauty products? It's called sea buckthorn, otherwise known as the "beauty berry" from the Himalayas. Sibu Beauty offers this super-fruit in skin care products and vitamin supplements because of its fatty acids and antioxidants, including Omega 7. I tried the cleanser, and was pleasantly surprised by how smooth, clean and above all, moisturized my face felt immediately after washing it. I always have to apply moisturizer right after washing because my face feels so tight, but this product really helped with that, to the point that I even skipped moisturizer some days. It also removed makeup well. If you'd like to receive this product, submit a comment with the line "I'm sick of tight skin!" and I'll enter you into the giveaway contest. You have 'till November 28th to respond. And now onto our regularly scheduled programming...

This is my third year for sharing my favorite holiday gift ideas. Many of the items from year one and year two are still available, so if you don't find the perfect idea here, try going back in time a little. So without further ado, here they are in no particular order (because I'm lazy like that)...
