Christmas Gift Guide

While I'm ashamed to admit just how much time I spend "fake shopping" online- you know, filling up a cart then closing the browser before checkout- sometimes actual shopping must be done. And while I've been making my Amazon wishlist utterly ridiculous (anyone wanna buy me the new car I built on the Mazda website?), I also peruse sites enough to know where you can buy some cool and unusual gifts, while supporting talented artists, musicians, and/or charities.

Below are a list of some of my favorite sites that either have great gifts to give, or links to other sites where you might find that perfect and unique something.

T-shirts, art, wallets, necklaces and more from BoyGirlParty

Holiday Matinee's new book I Swear To Good You Are God At This (or any other of the gifts in their online store)

T-Shirts from

Prints from Kardos Photography

Indie musician designed t-shirts from Yellow Bird Project (or coloring books!)

Digital music on Think Indie from local stores like M-Theory and Lou's Records

Crafts, goods, and gifts from e-tailers on Etsy

What are your favorite places to shop? Leave links in the comments to tell me what I missed!
