Gift Guides Glean Internet Offerings, Ease Stress of Finding the Perfect Gift

I am one of those people who refuse to go to the mall after November 1st. The strains of Deck the Halls should not be heard for at least four more weeks and it’s way too early for tinsel, lights, and trees. But, like it or not, the shopping must begin in earnest. Many of us mall haters choose to get comfy on the couch and hit the online markets. While I don’t have to fight for a parking place (other than with the dog), the marketplace itself is daunting. Thank goodness for gift guides!

Many magazines and businesses create gift guides for consumers to glean the multitude of offerings from cyberspace. Gift guides come in all varieties from fashion and food to home decor and electronics. Gift guides for woodworkers, for toddlers, and for men who have everything.

From Collin, SEO Analyst —  “I think the Enamel Graniteware Pie Plate is the perfect gift because it’s something you can use all the time, but isn’t something you’d think to buy for yourself. The Jadite finish color with the black speckles is my favorite.”
American made and handcrafted from commercial grade steel, $40
