2011 gift guide: ginny’s homebody holidays

by Ginny

This year instead of trimming the tree and hanging stockings, my husband and I have been labeling moving boxes and lovingly wrapping our knickknacks. We are in the process of buying our first home, and all I want for this holiday season is to feel settled in a place where I can plant my roots. Maybe Santa will magically move us and all of our belongings while we sleep. If that’s too tall an order, I wouldn’t mind his elves pitching in to help me clean! At the very least, here are some picks guaranteed to make anyone’s home a little merrier this year. — Ginny Branch
