Greeting gift enthusiasts! It’s been awhile since we’ve done a round-up, but we have a good excuse! We’ve been busy sharing our “gifting wisdom” with the masses. Guru Dana S recently showed off her favorite Graduation Gift picks on Pix 11, and we’ll be popping up again on an even bigger morning talk show soon (so stay tuned). With Memorial Day only a week or so away, we’ve been busy getting our homes and wardrobes summer-ready, and even managing to attend a wedding or two. It’s been a long week, so here’s a few fun links we’ve been bookmarking lately to kick off your weekend.
