  16. The macaron box made me smile because to be honest, I'd love to receive it as a Christmas gift instead of something I don't need or like. Each of the items is very cute to be gifted to a friend when you don't know what to buy. And yes, indeed it is the thought that counts, not how much does it cost. Happy Sunday, Rowena!

  17. What a great gift guide! These items would make great stocking stuffers! Love the acrylic glasses!

  18. Ooh the macaroons look delicious, and I would love to try the shea butter hand cream. Love your gift guide, cute ideas! :) I followed you on Google+ and would love if you followed me back when you get a chance.

    xo, Sarah
    Hustla, baby.
