Gifts Galore

It is that time of year again where streets and stores are decorated with festive holiday decorations. From twinkling lights to sparkly ornaments, the holidays just seem to start earlier every year. I recently moved to San Francisco for school, and have been enjoying all the decorations throughout the city. My favorite decoration so far is the giant Christmas tree in Union Square overlooking the outdoor ice skating rink. While the weather has not been terrible over here, the bright lights and festive music are especially helpful on the colder, windier evenings. I'm looking forward to seeing how different the city will look after Thanksgiving once the holiday season really starts!

With Thanksgiving being less than a week away, this also means that the start of the holiday shopping season is less than a week away! It may seem like it is a tad early to start thinking about finding the perfect gifts for your friends and family, but once Halloween ends, the last few remaining weeks of the year just seem to race by. I have put together a few fashion and beauty related gifts to help get you started. Hopefully they will provide some inspiration as you start creating your Christmas lists this year.
