I’ve posted waayyy too many comments today, but I can’t help it; I love all these gift guides! I feel like it’s xmas already! :-) I think my favorite from this group is the bird whistle. Very cute!


I’m not sure I understand the “ceramic diamond ring”… even though I really like it!

Also love the button coasters (too cute) and the sakurasaku glass!


The shopping cart notepad is sold out and was a limited edition so there won’t be any more. So sad.
