It's that time of year where instead of simply enjoying the holidays we are running around frantically trying to buy gifts for all our loved ones. Instead of resorting to the non-personal gift card we thought we would share with you some of our favorite gift picks for 2010 and inspire you to think outside the box with your gift giving.
Jessica's Top 5 Gift Pick:
These adorable letters are perfect for friends or even make a cute gift tie that can be used once the wrapping paper is gone. Only $8 at Anthropologie
These are the cutest little baby boots ever! Made from super soft organic cotton perfect for the most stylish of babies. Ssshh, don't tell Ella (my 6 month niece) she's getting these for Christmas! Bijou Boot at Zuzii - $36.50
A cute apron with a vintage cookbook for the food enthusiast. I love these aprons at Anthropologie and think they would be a perfect match for a vintage cookbook.
Vintage cookbooks can be found on Amazon
I love this Jonathan Adler match holder. It even has a strike on the side. Perfect for those who appreciate humorous design. $42 - Jonathan Adler
And finally, my all time favorite gift pick for 2010, the Penguin Classics in fun cloth binding. These books look amazing sitting out on a coffee table or all lined up on a shelf. And at only $13.60 a piece, you can afford to pick a few! Amazon

Brandy's Top 5 Gift Picks:
(more like stocking stuffers)
This is the "Sing-a-Ma-Jig" stuffed toy. It is so cheesy, it's adorable. It sings! It's not only fun for kids but for adults too. Although, I would feel silly buying this for an adult. $13 at amazon.com
OPI Nail Lacquer- the Burlesque Collection. I like sparkle-icious! Very holiday and fun!
I love this candy ring! It's $20.00 (www.papabubble.com at NYC store) or $40 at Neiman Marcus if you want to pay more. It's expensive for candy but super cool!
This is the Burberry Lip Charm. This is a great gift for me because I always need lip gloss and it can attach to my purse or keys. $85 at nordstrom.com
Fabulous Stationery is just that, Fabulous!! They have cool designs and they can be personalized for any occasion. And now they have cards that are generic for just a $1.
Cassie's Top 5 Gift Picks:
Gift #1: Anthropologie Holiday forest dish towel $24
I love their dish towels, and there are so many cute patterns and prints!
Gift #2: Gap Cozy Plaid Scarf for $29.95 and Cable knit fingerless gloves $19.50.
This scarf is so soft to the touch and would be so warm all bundled up in winter.
Gift #3: Restoration Hardware Sno-baller only $10.
I only wish we had cold enough winters here in Texas for this gift, but maybe for those family members up north? I would love this & I know kids would have a ball, literally! :)
Gift #4: C.O. Bigelow's My Favorite Lip Balm from Bath & Body Works $7.50.
Seriously my favorite lip balm. The Ultra Mentha leaves your lips feeling tingly and your breath smelling good too. I'd love to try the Warm Apple Cider.

I love these jelly watches, and they come in so many fun colors.
