2010 gift guides: a wishlist from bash, please


Happy December D*S Readers, we looooove this month! No bah humbugs here. Bing Crosby, snowflakes, hot buttered rum, family get togethers, mistletoe, office parties, Elf on AMC, christmas lights, garland making, pine needle scents, and pretty packages tied up with ribbon! Welcome to our very selfish gift guide. We are quite the shop stalkers over here at Bash, Please. So much so that our husbands sometimes call us Shop, Please! Always looking for fun goodies to spoil ourselves with year round, we are definitely on the naughty list. Shame on us. {We should get a lump of coal in our stocking}. However, we think that our affliction can add a cheery bit of pleasure to you and yours this holiday. Indulgent and conservative, our picks run the gifting gamut from stocking stuffers to home style to a jewelry splurge. We love being a part of Grace’s stable of contributors and we thank you all for reading our little entertaining column. We wish you joy, peace, and cheer this holiday season. Now check out these things we hope someone will get for us (or the loved ones in your life)! –Paige and Kelly

    Sadly, they want an additional $32 to ship one pair of curtain tights to Canada. I’m in Toronto, not the North Pole! It should cost maybe five bux.
