Christmas shopping is hard.  I do my best to support local small businesses, but I don’t know what I would do without the internet.  Fight traffic or buy it online for the same price or better?  No-brainer.

I know there are a million gift guides out there, so I wanted to approach mine a little differently.  I only chose categories that I personally can shimmy myself into. I have to say, I’m feeling confident in my suggestions because I either own or have been eyeing each of these products.  I think other people would love them too!  So without further adieu: The Almost Properly Holiday Gift Guide – 2017!

*Items under $25 are marked with an asterisk.
