I Hope You Like It

My mother has always been an amazing gift giver, and I like to think that she has passed this trait on to me [I hope others would agree].  She listens. It's nothing magical.  I have become a year-round listener as well and shop very far in advance.  In addition to listening to what others like, my mom and I both have Pinterest to rely on for some extra help in the gift giving department. Pinterest can take gift giving to a new extreme.  Not only can you find specific items that your friends and family adore, but you can also get an idea for their general style.  My mom strategically viewed my Accessories board on Pinterest as I found these pretty presents under the tree this year:

Matte Top Coat-how did I just discover this?

Moral of the story: pin what you really do like because you may actually get it one day all wrapped up in a pretty bow.

What's on your Pinterest wish list?

Totally agree! I did this with my daughter's teacher this year. Bet she was glad to get something she wanted instead of another bag of fudge!
