Last Minute Gift Guide for the Unique, Rustic, Old Fashioned, and “Difficult To Buy For” people in your life (Women’s Edition)

Christmas is just around the corner and if you’re like me you still have a couple people on your list to get gifts for. And if you’re like me you also have at least one person in your life who loves the unique. It happens every year, Groupon, Amazon and all the big companies send out the “Must Have Holiday Gift Guide” which promises “something for everyone” but somehow every year I don’t really like anything on the list. My whole family was like that growing up and now my husband is like this too. We’re really not that difficult to buy for but we do have a specific style that usually isn’t seen in a Macy’s ad. If you, or someone you know, fits into this category then I hope you can find something on this list!
