If you’ve been scrolling around le blog today I’m sure you’ve noticed the addition of “Gift Guide” next to the search box and the gold glittery button that says “RC Holiday Gift Guide 2013” on the side. Instead of going the usual route of creating a variety of posts based on different categories, I’ve decided instead to create a separate gift guide page. If you need the gift guide it’s there, but it won’t be getting in the way of regularly scheduled content. I’ve chosen to do it this way for a couple of reasons. There are a million and one gift guides out there, many of which are incredibly helpful, but sometimes after you’ve clicked on about 50 blogs and all you have seen are gift guides featuring allllllll the same products, you just want to see regular content. Creating the separate gift guide page ensures that if you need gift help it is easy to find, but if you are coming here looking for holiday DIY’s, how to dress your wintry best and what Christmas cookies to bake, it won’t be a struggle to find that content in the midst of many gift guides. In short, I have a lot of fabulous holiday ideas I want to share with you, I’ve found a lot of fabulous gifts for you to give, and I want to share all this fabulousness in the best way possible!
How the gift guide works- You can easily access the gift guide from either the menu bar or the button on the sidebar. You will then see a page of pictures that you can scroll through. Underneath each picture you will see who it would be appropriate for (i.e. hostess, foodie, woman, etc) and if you hover over the picture you will see the price of the item, where it can be purchased and buttons to share it on Twitter or pin it to your Pinterest (to save for later). If you want to go ahead and purchase the item, simply click the picture. I have included items for women, men, kids, baby, pets, home, hostess, stocking stuffers and everything in between in a variety of price ranges. As I see new things, I will add them to the page, so make sure you check back often.
If you don’t want to scroll through all the items on the gift guide page, I will be publishing one gift guide post tomorrow along with two of my favorite blogging gals. We’ve narrowed down all the holiday goodies to 15 of our favorites and we can’t wait to share them with you!
