Ladies, we've got 38 days until Christmas and now is the time to start leaving those hints for your husband or boyfriend or family members. Why? Because I don't think you really want to end up with another toaster for Christmas... or another perfume gift set... or whatever else your loved ones tend to buy you when they don't know what to get.
I've rounded up a bunch of great ideas for Christmas this year that will appeal to all sorts of personalities. There's something from everyone - from the girly girl to the geek, to the environmentalist to the tech junkie and everyone in between.
And if you can't find something here - stay tuned, because I also have two more gift guides coming in the next few weeks for my fellow healthy living and foodie ladies.
So let me share my Best Gifts for Women this Year! >>
