Already Decem-brrrr?

Hello, My Goose-Bumped Readers.

The most stressful month is upon us. Time to be merry while fending off grumpy shoppers with their screaming toddlers in crowded malls. Or, if you're like me, sit in front of a computer screen with the mood altering beverage of your choice and click on the perfect gifts without the mind numbing addition of Christmas carols (I'm convinced that it's the Christmas carols that elicit the emotional response in otherwise reasonable people to go to blows over a Disney Frozen Snow Glow Elsa doll or gaming console.). Exercise caution while caroling!

Anyhoo, in the spirit of the season, I've decided to put together the first annual thefoxcraft 2014 Holiday Gift Guide. Enjoy and jingle all the way!

Make good use of all that time frittered away on Instagram by giving framed pics to your loved ones.

Here's something for the crafty DIYer in your life.

And, this is another DIY kit that allows you to print your own images on fabric, or wood!

How great would it be to offer an inexpensive home theater option for the movie lover in your life?

Wouldn't a family tintype be such a lovely step up from the holiday photos we did in the back of department stores?

What photographer doesn't need smart back-up solutions?

This would make a nice hostess gift for the poor sap whose turn it is to open their home to this year's family chaos.

If you'd like to give a gift that makes a real difference and touches upon the charitable spirit of this time of year, the Kiva card could be a good option.

If you or anyone you know has ever been in need of a charge and let down by the less than ample Apple cord, than this stocking stuffer is gonna be appreciated! (For bonus points, try saying "less than ample apple" five times fast.)

Even if they are glued to monitors all day, you can get your loved ones off their butts.

This nifty device can be customized to monitor your commute traffic, weather, email, calendar, social media networks, and more.

An instant camera is always a hit at holiday parties! And, this one is a looker.

This activity tracker doesn't only keep you informed of your steps and sleep quality. If you and your bed partner have different alarms, it wakes you up by vibrating on your wrist instead of an infernal buzzer.

Use this tote bag to hold all the great holiday swag you receive.

If you know an art collector or are one yourself, than getting an original work from the Yellow House Gallery December Art Salon & Show would be a fantastic idea! The opening reception is tonight and the work will be up all month. Hope to see you there!

And, if a hefty dose of "Bah Humbug" is more your bag, than perhaps you'd be more interested in the 2 holidays that you can celebrate today without shopping. I may end up combining my celebration of Repeal Day and Bathtub Party Day into one happy multitasking event. Cheers.
