The Ultimate Gift Guide!

I recently assembled an “Ultimate Gift Guide” for Paradise Valley Lifestyle magazine and wanted to share my finds on the blog. So, ta-da! From designer brands to new discoveries and local shops I like to frequent, I’m sharing some of my favorite gifts to give and get this holiday season and beyond for her, him and the kids!

Since the above is a reprint from the magazine, here’s the list in a larger font with links to buy the products, if available online. I also included a few more of my picks below that didn’t make it in the magazine due to limited space.
