The Gift Of Giving

When I lived in Italy I loved preparing for the holidays.

Not that I don't love it now, but I don't really have time to anymore.

Where as then I had weeks to plan and buy and wrap up my gifts carefully before my family came to visit me or I went home to visit them, now it's far more hectic.

For the last couple of years I've had final exams and papers until around the 20th of December (not to mention a holiday gift budget that is significantly reduced compared to when I had a job) and then it's a mad four-day scramble to get presents for everyone.

This year is no different.

I've essentially been writing papers and doing group projects and presentations since before Thanksgiving. And I'm not done until next Monday.

But every once in a while I give myself a little break on Pinterest or Etsy to rest my brain a bit, and lately I've seen what would make some adorable gifts for the special sombodies in your life.
