Yes, we at Breezy Mama know that you get inundated with gift idea lists, so we like to help when it’s the very last minute, you have forgotten exactly what was in those magazines, are down to the wire wondering: WHAT DO I GET HER/HIM/HOSTESS/FRIENDS KIDS, etc… and QUICK! If you have a few people left to shop for, here are some great ideas that the grateful recipient will never guess you thought of last minute (pssst… and if you want to see them up close, be sure to watch my Fox 5 San Diego appearance below). Happy Holidays!!!
