Ms. Elaine Kneeous

Jennifer is a one in a million stay-at-home mom. (More like one OF a million stay at home moms!) She graduated from a liberal arts college but there is nothing liberal OR artsy about her. She is married to Kevin Fischer of This Just In, and together they have a beautiful young daughter Kyla Audrey. In no particular order she loves dogs, wine, a good bargain, her family, pizza, and entertaining. Follow her blog of all things miscellaneous including but not limited to cooking and baking, entertaining and party planning, being a mommy, and homekeeping.

Countdown to Christmas!

It’s a little disconcerting to think that we have less than three months until Christmas. I know there are lots of people out there (ahem, Kevin!) who like to wait until the very last minute to purchase and wrap. But for those of you who want to get a head-start on things let me offer a few suggestions.

It’s tough to give up a classic, but may I suggest skipping these this year? Oh, you can do SO much better!

For every homeowner on your list… Who doesn’t want to conserve energy these days? And who couldn’t use a great decoration to spruce up their yard? Every fan of this show (and even those who have never watched!) will be clamoring for this unique gift.

I have mentioned my niece Kari. You know: the gorgeous, smart, athletic, “total package.” Well she has two brothers: handsome, intelligent, sports enthusiasts, also amazing catches. These three head-turners are always well-dressed in the latest and best labels. But I bet they don’t have the guy's and gal's versions of these. Yet. Like I said, it’s never too early to shop!

I’m so glad I was able to present the perfect 2011 Christmas Gift-Giving Guide. I can’t wait to hear how your family loves these incredible finds. (I just hope MY family doesn’t read this and spoil their surprises!)
