I love giving gifts but I hate trying to decide who wants what. Some people feel impossible to shop for which puts me in our local mall every year on Christmas Eve morning...scrambling to get it together. 😂 I want to do it differently this year so I put together a list of 75 gift ideas; some that I love and use and some that were recommended by you guys! I tried to keep most of these items on Amazon because....well I know I need free 2 day shipping. Lol.
