The Design Scouting Gift Guide

November 21, 2012

I couldn’t be more excited for the holidays this year; my sister is hosting Thanksgiving so that means no travel and no cooking for me (and great food).  Then we’re headed to Boston for Christmas, which means snow (and sledding!) and sitting in front of the fire with loved ones.  Thanks to my sister for handling Thanksgiving so I had time to do this gift guide.
