IN MY LIFE:
After spending almost every evening at home this past week (nearly unheard of for us!), we’re trying to pack as much Christmas magic into the remaining days before the holiday. One thing we did this weekend was to tour the Governor’s residence and look at al the themed trees honoring all who have served our country. Despite the beauty of it all, our kids weren’t exactly enthralled with the event.
While that wasn’t the only cue that this Christmas would be a little different with a teenager, it certainly was symbolic. That prompted me to write a post with my top 5 picks for last-minute gifts for teenage girls, all of which can be found at Macy’s and all of which can still arrive in time for Christmas. You can find it here: https://www.samicone.com/last-minute-macys-gift-guide-for-teens/
What would you add to the list?
And if you missed my “Gifts that Give Back” TV segment on Friday, you can still find all my favorite products and support their causes here: https://www.samicone.com/gifts-that-give-back-tv/
