It's only 16 days til Christmas and I am no where near finished.  I see posts on my friends' Facebook pages how all the gifts are wrapped and looking perfectly gorgeous under their themed Christmas trees.  

According to the National Retail Federation, retail sales will increase 3.6 percent from last year to $655.8 billion.  American consumers plan to spend an average $935.58 during the holiday season this year.

Etsy has wonderful affordable gifts, handmade and mostly unique gifts for all.  I love to support crafters like myself.  A perfect gift is very easy to find on Etsy.

Co-ops are great to buy from during the holidays. has a list of gift ideas from co-ops.

Whomever you choose to support this holiday season, I hope it's not too stressful and you enjoy the gift of giving.
