HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE – 1 OF 2
This year, like most years, I’ve selected a few of my fave things for my holiday gift guide. These could be gifts for yourself (don’t ever forget yourself) or for those nearest and dearest to you.
I’m sure you’ve been flooded with so very many options, so I’m working on simplifying that for you, by highlighting items in different categories at different price points. The categories are: beauty (hair/skin), jewelry/accessories, tech, apparel, books, travel, and food.
Tech: Acer Swift 7
The Acer Swift 7: I received this laptop earlier in the year, and after close to 6 months of use, I can say it has become the most used piece of tech I own.
