Handmade Holiday Gift Guide

first of all,


i feel like i should introduce myself a little bit to any new readers

my name is Megan Robinson and i am a wife, mommy, recent college graduate {boo-yah!}, Oreo connoisseur, #1 Arizona lover, and obsessor of all things sparkly!
I like to talk about everything from my sweet husband & chubby baby (toddler?) boy, to marriage, love and honest everyday struggles.

you can get to know me a little more here:

Happy day-after-Thanksgiving!!!
i now can officially start decorating for Christmas
{which Adam is very happy about!}
and try to figure out Christmas presents!

this Christmas is kind of hard for us.
going over our finances we realized we have very little {if any} extra money for gifts.
so we have decided that we need to be very frugal & creative!

i pitched the idea to Adam that we should have a
homemade Christmas
by either making our own gifts
or {since i’m not that creative}
purchasing from small shops/businesses

so far, i think i have found some really wonderful, beautiful, & creative gift ideas for my family at reasonable prices!
but since i can’t share with you the gifts i got them, i can at least share with you some shops that i LOVE and highly recommend!!

I love those handmade baby boots! I wish I could still get Addi into cute booties (where have the last 3.5 years gone?).
