Though I’m still painfully full from last night’s gi-normous feasts (in my case, we had two. Yes. TWO FULL Thanksgiving meals), it’s hard not to want to shop… While I’m not much of a run to the store, endure the Black Friday madness, kind of a gal, I know this year, a lot of purchases will be made online.  I’m in the process of figuring out what I want to get everyone and since I’m working closely with eBay, I’m thinking visiting their Holiday Gift Guide at, is a great place to start.
