Your MSM Very Last-Minute Gift Guide

So, it’s come to my attention that some bloggers work long and hard for months in advance of the Holiday Season, putting together “Gift Guides”.  They research the hippest, coolest stuff.  They are sent samples to try.  They organize and categorize, then present you, the reader, with a clear and concise list of EXACTLY what you should be giving or getting this year.

Well, I’ll be damned.

I’m lucky if I can get my OWN gift list scribbled on the back of an envelope before I head out the door on the week before Christmas with an hour and a half set aside in which I must get EVERYTHING bought, wrapped and hidden.  You think I’m going to spend that much time on YOU guys?  I mean…I love you and all, but…phhffttt!

What I DID do for you, however, turned out to be way more fun and potentially way more useful.  I Tweeted.

Yep, the other day I threw out a random 140 plea to readers who have an Etsy/Ebay/Brick and Mortar/Imaginary storefront of some kind…or who just sell stuff.  (Legally, of course.)  I asked them to reply with a song and a fave item from their store to go into this post, the

FIRST ANNUAL

MUSIC SAVVY MOM

VERRRYYY LAST MINUTE GIFT GUIDE!

I think we turned up some damn nice stuff!  I added photos of the items, but you’ll have to click the links to get all the details.  And, I’m not saying you’ll be able to get these in time for Christmas unless you happen to live next door to one of these fine folks…but, like I always say – the Magi  showed up with THEIR presents a week late, so in my mind a very clear precedent has been set.

Check the links, add these kind folks on Twitter and enjoy the tunes.  And, most importantly, don’t say I never did anything nice for you.

You’re welcome. 😉

@MusicSavvyMom This isn’t my Etsy store (belongs to a friend), but she makes amazing bags. I bought one for my wife…

@MusicSavvyMom Sure! Since you’re in a British/Indie mood… you’ve got to with Thom Yorke’s “FeelingPulledApartByHorses”

@MusicSavvyMom Oh, and I’m just now checking out Tides and Tides’ album, “Sixstarhotel” — really liking it so far.
