Operation Christmas Shopping for Family: Fourth Status Report

Alright, I am putting my head down again and actually finishing my shopping.  When I started this series, I thought, "Wow Aime, you are doing really good.  You will have your shopping finished in no time."  Well, now it is well into October and I still have several people and items that I am needing to look for still.

So today's finds are for my brother's and brother-in-law's girlfriends.  I love both of these girls dearly and we get along very well but shopping for them can be quite the experience sometimes.  So I turned to my trusty Etsy search function and started searching for keywords of things I thought they would like.

For my brother's girlfriend, I searched for travel.  She went to college in Canada (we are from Hawaii) and is looking for work abroad now that she has graduated.  Perfect!  There are so many fun and functional travel items on Etsy!   One of the first ones I found was this passport cover by GracieDesigns.  Cute, functional, and perfectly priced for a growing family like I am shopping for!  =) And with how reasonably priced her items are, I can still get her something else!  I am definitely loving this necklace as a possible option.  And everyone back home wants to hear from you when you travel and these cards were so beautiful I had to mention them!

For my brother-in-law's girlfriend, I am a little less certain as to a specific direction but there is always an abundance of beautiful things on Etsy!  For example, this cheery little pillow will look adorable just as an addition to a bed or as an accent anywhere!  (and it comes in different colors so I can find out what colors her room are.)  Another sweet item on Etsy (from a good friend!) is this set of cards featuring many different sayings.  Now I just have to decide which one I like best.  =) A fellow Island creator makes these beautiful wrap bracelets that I have been wanting myself but I think I may end up getting this particular one as a gift.

And I think that is a very good start.  =)

But!  I have an announcement to make.  Drumroll!  Sense and Sensibility Designs will be at the Anaheim Senior Citizens Club Holiday Boutique!  It will be held at the Downtown Community Center at 250 E. Center Street, Anaheim, on October 15 & 16 from 9 - 3 on both days.  If you are able to come and join us, let me know that you heard about it here on my blog and you will get 15% off of your purchase.  I truly hope to see you there and I will remind you over the next few days.  =)  There will be new items and a greater variety of selection than you usually find on my Etsy.

Have a beautiful day everyone!
