2008 has been the year of surprises. While the economic downturn has been challenging for everyone, the election of president-elect Obama has brought us into a new era of possibilities. So in the spirit of keeping to simple pleasures without breaking the bank, here are some hope-inspiring possibilities for your holiday shopping. This year’s gift list is short and sweet. Nothing too fancy, it’s just a list of quality goods that warm the heart.
This year’s recommendations are also part of our Baking Fridays year-end sweepstakes. From November 14th to December 19th, 2008, we are giving away two of each gift in our weekly drawing. For descriptions of the gifts, click on the images to go to the corresponding Baking Friday entries.
