Gifting Guide: Out of the Ordinary

It should be the 16th Day of Christmas. It is, however, the 15th Day, because we were in Florida and then I had two sick babies… but enough about that. I had a total blast putting this guide together! Because everyone has at least one person to buy for that has  E V E R Y T H I N G. So take a look below at some out-of-the-ordinary gift ideas for anyone on your list!
