It's My Party's Holiday Gift Guide for 2014

This is my very first Holiday Gift Guide for 2014. I don't have any specific theme but I have focused in showcasing the products of talented artisans and small business owners that most commercialized malls and shops do not promote nor have. There are also products featured here that I have already tried and tested which I all love.

This years Holiday Gift Guide is comprised of products from sellers who promote creative flair for the adults and creative learning for the kids too, plus product discount codes from two of the companies featured in this Holiday Gift Guide. Don't miss those fantastic offers!

I hope to be able to continue this practice next year and the years to come with more sellers and products to introduce.
