The Holidays™ are right around the corner. The weather is getting chilly; you’re sipping as much hot chocolate as legally allowed, but in that immersion into the sipping of the hot chocolate…did you forget to buy presents? Maybe you couldn’t find quite the right thing? Perhaps you just knew that we love putting together gift guides and were waiting for this very one? Regardless, we wanted to share some of the artists who we’re obsessed with and who make great gifts!
