If you are like me you are a.} a procrastinator b} love to window shop through the blogosphere. So it is really a treat when the two come together to help in the last minute holiday shopping many of us have left to do. The blog world has so many fantastic gift guides that entertain and delight at all budgets and for all potential recipients {pets, newborns, newlyweds etc. etc}. A Cup of Jo Gift Guide has become yet another reason I really look forward to December in recent years.

As a blog follower you have come to know and love the writers tastes and preferences. When Holiday Gift Guide time rolls around, just beeline to your favorites and its as if your shopping list has been handpicked by a friend! Lucinda Wesson of Chocolate Creative Design is one of these friends. With a formal background in graphic design and years of working in NYC, we love working together with Lucinda and other 'ex-pats' of the big apple on weddings, events and shoots throughout the year. She is the designer who conceptualized one of our favorite shoots and has an eye for the eclectic, the unique and the beautiful in all aspects of design. Miss Lucinda really unwrapped some surprises early this year. Along with her fantastic collaborations and partnerships in the industry, she launched out on her own with a brand new blog, Glitter, Glue and Fireflies! We were flattered when she asked us to submit our ideas for her 12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide for Chocolate Creative Design. { my stocking stuffer ideas on day 2!} There are some really terrific nuggets and ideas culled from some of our areas best creative entrepreneurs and friends.
