This way I can see exactly where he goes when he leaves me to go do his crazy off-trail skiing. And maybe I can get a few glimpses of myself and the kids, provided we ski ahead of him. Thanks for the great idea … I was really stuck this year!

If I love globes so much, why do I suck so much at geography? Thanks for the chance to win. Cheers!

So add a notch to your sales tally. :-)

I can’t wait to get this for my husband, his parents and my parents. This is the perfect gift! Thanks so much for putting this together. I adore your site and appreciate all your hard work! Thanks!

He loves it! So much fun for dirt bike riding, surfing and even family bike rides!

In this case “underwritten” means Pier 1 paid for my time to put together 6 gift guides. There were no stipulations for what should be included, themes, number of items, or really anything. Specifically, I was not asked to include any items from Pier 1.

But, I shop at Pier 1 all the time and have since I was a teenager, and I was grateful for their support, so I’ve purposefully included a few Pier 1 items among my gift guides. I’ve also included my favorite finds from all sorts of places — like Target, Etsy and everywhere in between.

Please know that every single item on these guides was picked out by me. And that having the series underwritten allowed me to spend a lot more time searching out the coolest things I can find and gathering beautiful images.

I’m bummed out you are not finding the series interesting, but a well-thought-out gift guide takes a significant amount of hours to put together and I’m so pleased I could find a sponsor to pay for that time.

Beaded mirrors? I think I must have missed them. One of my next gift guides has a “sparkly” theme. I’ll have to investigate.

And not sure what’s up with the link — it’s definitely working for me. Mysterious.
