I hope you are having as much reading my posted gift guides this season as I have receiving them from all of my savvy friends. Today’s gift guide comes from my very talented and (hilarious) friend Natalie Bazin. She’s a graphic designer (hence her gift guide header) and will soon be launching an Etsy site with custom invites and cards! Her ideas are made up of lots of practical but amazing goodies. I believe her hubby pulled together the guy picks! (never easy to buy for guys). Enjoy!
