Christmas shopping

I realize that Halloween and Thanksgiving haven't even rolled around, but if you're like me it's always nice to get a jump start on your Christmas shopping. Once Thanksgiving comes and goes things tend to get a little crazy between all the holiday parties and traveling, and before you know it it's Christmas Eve.

I always have trouble thinking of unique gift ideas for girlfriends, the guys in my life (except for my husband who pretty much has a running Christmas list all year long) and secret santas. Every now and then I'll come across a great idea so from now until Christmas Eve I will plan on sharing these ideas with you. My hope is that this will ease your holiday shopping and hopefully make your family and friends happy when they open your gift.

When I was in Nashville, TN a few weekends ago for a bachelorette party I came across a great gift idea. They're called TableTopics.

Have you ever been to a dinner party or simply a small get together with friends and find the conversation lull from time to time? TableTopics are a collection of conversation starters meant to engage folks in fun, interesting discussions typically with a lot of laughter at dinner or cocktail parties or simply on your next road trip.

The large cubes come with 135 question cards and a variety of topics to choose from such as the: family edition, girls night out edition, dinner party edition, gourmet edition, couples edition, what would you do? edition along with many others. TableTopics also come in travel size versions that contain 40 question cards with topics such as the: road trip edition, wine edition, wedding shower edition, bachelorette party edition, honeymoon edition and the golf edition.

A friend of mine purchased the bachelorette party travel set for our weekend in Nashville. It was the perfect game to have on hand while we enjoyed a few cocktails before hitting the town that evening. They are great conversation starters so if you're looking for a fun, entertaining gift pick one of these.

TableTopics are mainly sold in individual boutiques across the country but you can always buy them online. For store locations please visit their website.

If you have any gift suggestions please send them my way!
