Zelda’s 2016 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again, y’all! The gifting season is upon us, a time of secret santas and white elephants and wrapping paper galore. I love to gift: Nothing gives me quite the same thrill as finding the perfect present for a particular person, the perfect blend of thoughtful and fun and unique all wrapped up in a bow. But whether you love to gift or find it an onerous challenge (see: Scout), a little inspiration and brainstorming help never hurts. These are some of the things I’ve found on the internet lately that tickled my fancy. Whether you buy them for a friend, a family member, a coworker, or yourself, they’re all sure to bring a little joy and sparkle to your day.
