Each summer I attend the NY NOW Show – The Market for Lifestyle, Home + Gift – at the Javits Center in New York City. It’s fun to walk the aisles filled with jewelry, housewares, artisan crafts, paper goods, and a whole lot more. Since it’s the gift giving season, I thought I would share some of my favorite things from the show. I’ve included items only where I know you can purchase them online.
Also included in this year’s gift guide, are a few products from my basket of blogger swag — I receive so many different and unusual items throughout the year.
If you haven’t finished your holiday shopping, perhaps you’ll find an idea for the perfect gift for a loved one or maybe a treat for yourself. Plus read down all the way, as I’m giving away some holiday gifts during JudiBoomergirl’s December giveaways! Be sure to enter this week’s Rafflecopter for Camille Beckman English Lavender Glycerine Hand Therapy!
