Greetings fellow gifters! Are you as excited about this weekend as I am? Halloween is right around the corner and I still don’t have a costume, so if anybody wants to share any inspiring costume ideas, I’m all ears. And even though it’s not even November yet, I’m already inundated with Thanksgiving catalogs filled with drool-worthy recipes and gifts. Bring on the turkey!

In other news, today is officially THE last day to get your nominations in for the best gifts of the year for our annual Giftee Awards. Think you know what the hottest toy is, the coolest gift for teens, or a great Hostess find? Tell us and be entered to win $500. Now that’s what I call a good start to the weekend.  See you Monday and enjoy these links from the week.
