(Last-Minute) Gift-Guide by the Elements
The countdown is on, you have 9 days until Christmas Day. Around here we love gift-giving and making our loved ones feel special, and we know you do too. Another thing we know...is that you haven’t finished your holiday shopping. (Have you even started? According to our Instagram poll, I'm not so sure...)
You don’t have much time, so let’s get right into it. We’re not even going to get into gift-giving by the zodiacs because you may not even have the time to read something that specific at this point #timecrunch, we’re getting a little broader and gifting YOU with a gift guide by the 4 elements: Earth, Water, Air, Fire.
